Krysta Zakrzewski, Owner KZ Events Northern Virginia event planning

“There is something remarkable about being part of creating someone's dream event. Witnessing their smile, sharing in their happiness all while relieving any stress along the journey, is a major contributor to my passion for planning spectacular events. I began working in the events and service industry in college, as a cater waiter. Following graduation, I started my career and eventually earned the title of Director of Meetings and Conventions for an international association. I am married with three beautiful girls. I go by Krysta, Krissy, Kiki and Mom but feel free to call me KZ.”

I loved all the details that Krysta put into the event. The kids loved it! It was especially nice that we didn’t have to deal with set up or take down. Everything went well! Krysta even helped with a rabid raccoon on site!"


Highly recommend KZ Events. She is professional, organized and creative. Love working with her."
