Robyn Bruns, owner and Principal Event Planner of Red Letter Event Planning, designed her first party when she was just seven years old. This sparked a lifelong passion for arranging beautiful and unique events. Since 2005, Red Letter Events have taken place in historic barns, backyard settings, mansions, art galleries, ballrooms, atop open-patio skyscrapers, and even aboard boats.

Robyn’s work has been described as “creative”, “stylish”, and “accessible”. Her client’s say she is “organized”, “responsive” and “sweet” and will do everything to make the planning process fun for you.

Prior to opening Red Letter Event Planning, Robyn organized promotional events for numerous Fortune 500 clients while working for an international PR firm. She also planned and managed weeklong international conferences and many on-site events.

In 2012 Robyn moved from the Chicagoland area to the lake side resort city of Coeur d Alene Idaho. She has since won the “Most Popular Wedding Planner in Idaho” award two years in a row. She is active in community events while maintaining a full calendar of wedding, social and non-profit clients. Red Letter Event Planning has been featured in numerous publications in print and online.

Robyn is the State Manager for Washington, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Alaska for the Association of Bridal Consultants and an Accredited Wedding Planner. When not immersed in the world of event planning projects, Robyn enjoys cooking, reading up on political science news and events, following the Chicago Cubs and family time with her husband Greg and best buddy Snickers, their Irish Goldendoodle. She fully believes U2 is the greatest band ever.

Robyn and her team were worth every penny. Robyn has been in the business for a long time and has more than enough credentials, in wedding planning! She not only loves her job but cares so deeply about the couple and their families. She really proved to be a liaison between me and the families when the going got tough with planning. She checked and double checked all of my work, confirmed everything with vendors, and thought of all the little details that I never would have… She even came to my house the morning of the wedding (which wasn’t part of the plan) to say hello, wish me good luck, and give me a wedding present. Unbelievable. When I walked into my venue I was shocked. It was exactly how I pictured it.

Red Letter Event Planning was great, they helped us create the wedding we wanted. We truly loved our wedding! The hard work they put in allowed us to not have to think about anything the whole day. We still look at our wedding pictures and get excited.

Robyn is responsive and so great to have on your side. Every single detail was taken care of the day/evening of the wedding. As a day of planner, she provided so much more as she began her work weeks earlier. Both she and her assistant were just so helpful, supportive and overall fantastic! I highly recommend Red Letter Event Planning!
