As the Owners of The 1206, we will both be working closely with you to create an event that will impress your guests!  With over a decade of experience in the wedding and events industry, and two decades in the music industry (Justin!) we both have a love and passion for creating unique and memorable events, and we are ready to walk you through the entire process.  When you book any type of event with us, whether a wedding reception, a birthday party or your corporate meeting, one of the perks is to be able to access our creative spirit and our extensive list of referrals.  Also, our favorite thing to hear in a meeting is, "Can you just take care of that?" Either way, we are here to assure that your event will go as smoothly as possible!

We both love creating. . .

One of my strengths is that of a Visionary and "Idea Person". Are you having some sort of blockage when it comes to figuring out a plan, or starting a new business? I can help you get the ideas flowing!

Brainstorming sessions are held away from your home or your work where often times get you caught up in all of the other things you feel you have to do. We will find a place where you can open your mind and we will sit and start talking through scenarios.  

Whereas I cannot promise we will find all of the answers in the first hour, we can at least get your creative juices flowing so that you can start moving forward!

let's change that.

Hey friend, are you struggling with creative block?

We met when he hired me to work on his small organic farm, we got to know each other, fell in love and got married.

A year or so later, we had a dream to start revitalizing the downtown area of the little town, purchased a building, renovated it into a coffee shop and photography studio and started drawing people in.

A year or so after that, we purchased another building, renovated the front, like the other one, decorated it to be an elegant and classy venue and called it The 1206.  This building is located at 1206 Main Ave. in Crete, NE and it's where YOU will make memories.

One day a few years ago I met a farmer who lived outside of the little town of Crete. . .

why i am here

My Story

There is nothing better in my life than using my creative skills to make beautiful things.  It's what I've done with our buildings and it's what I would like to do with you.  

I LOVE to create.  Whether it's photos, buildings or memories, creating is my passion.
