Hi, my name is Clary Luecke. I am the owner and lead coordinator for Celebrations with Clary. My love for wedding and event planning started at a young age. My family helped plan and execute a back yard wedding for my cousin when I was five years old. We did everything from making the bouquets and decorating to landscaping, making my cousins vision come to life! I was the flower girl for the wedding and soaked in every moment. Soon after I saw “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” at the movie theater with my Grandmother and I was hooked!
Throughout the years I have helped with many family and friends weddings. When I was 14 years old I started working for a catering company. This exposed me to many different events including banquets, holiday parties, funeral dinners, baby showers, birthday parties, anniversary parties, rehearsal dinners and weddings. I continued catering events for ten years. Catering taught me what goes on behind the scenes at events and weddings.
My passion for event planning inspired me to attend the University of Missouri where I graduated in 2018 with a bachelor's degree in Hospitality Management emphasis in Event and Conference Management and a minor in Business. My internship at Mizzou was at a resort coordinating weddings and corporate events. I gained valuable experience in event organization and travel with Mizzou Alternative Breaks, planning service trips all over the United States.
I planned the wedding of my dreams and married Dustin on October 6th, 2018. In October of 2019 Dustin and I welcomed our little girl Harper Irene into the world the day after our one year wedding anniversary. I'm excited to get to know your story and help you bring your vision to life.
