bout Jenna

Jenna Culley is a born and raised Wisconsin girl but began her career in New York working at high end, private clubs learning how to plan, execute and design over-the-top events. When she returned to the Midwest, she launched Jenna Culley Events (previously known as Jenna A Events) in the Minneapolis - St. Paul area and brought all of that big city experience layered with her small town smile. She now has a team of planners that hold her same service-driven values and perfectionist tendencies.

Jenna lives in Oakdale with her husband, Justin, and their three children, Cate, Ava and Wyatt.

bout Betsey

Betsey Palmgren is a true Minnesotan, born and raised in St. Paul, Minnesota and only leaving the state for four years of college at Indiana University. After college, Betsey moved back to Minnesota wanting to get into the Nonprofit industry. This would lead her to meeting Jenna and both connecting on their love of events and wedding planning. Betsey joined the team as a lead planner back in 2014, took some time away to spend with her two boys and is back on board as a lead planner and office manager. Betsey has worked on many events and weddings of all shapes and sizes. She loves to help make a couple’s day stress free and handle all the details so that they can truly enjoy their special day.


Betsey lives in Hopkins with her husband and two sons.

bout Liz

Liz Erdmann is a true Midwesterner, growing up and living in Illinois, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. Liz and Jenna met in college and have been friends ever since. Their talk of event planning started while watching Gilmore Girls in their dorm; Liz being the Sookie to Jenna’s Lorelei. Liz has been a part of Jenna Culley Events from almost day one and has loved every part of it. Working as both assistant and lead planner has allowed Liz to learn everything about event planning - from room set up to timeline execution. No matter how many weddings Liz has worked, that walk down the aisle the bride makes to her groom gets Liz teary every time.

Liz lives in Roseville with her husband and two step sons.

bout Elizabeth

Elizabeth has had a passion for Wedding and Event Planning her entire life. Since entering the industry in 2014, she has acquired hands-on experience in creating bridal floral, event design and event coordination. When asked what her favorite parts of the wedding day are, she said "It's when the bride walks down the aisle and everyone is watching her, I'm looking at the groom because I love the way he is looking at her in that moment. The entire world stops and it's just them. It's honest, it's raw and, to me, it's breathtaking. I also love the little moments I get with the couple before their first look, little moments with the bride before she walks down the aisle or the conversations that are filled with laughter, love and pure happiness after the ceremony is over. I really treasure those moments from each wedding day." 

Elizabeth lives in Forest Lake with her husband and four children.
