About Philosofi Celebrations
Hey, I’m Sofi (she/her)! I was always the “birthday” kid growing up. You know, the kid who is WAY too excited about her own birthday and asks you a million questions about what you’re doing for yours. My brother still makes fun of me for telling my friends the plan for my 11th birthday party as they were leaving my 10th birthday party. Fast forward about a dozen years when I decided to take that passion for a cohesive theme and good plan and channel it into a career- wedding planning! I dove headfirst into every course, mastermind, and podcast I could find about weddings and event planning before launching Philosofi Celebrations.
We plan personal and intentional weddings for big hearted couples in the Kansas City metropolitan area. What is it that makes a Philosofi couple? Big hearts, a focus on fun, true love, and a couple of quirks!

My husband and I got married in December 2023 and used Sofi for the entirety of our wedding planning. I'm not great at, nor do I enjoy planning parties/events, but once we explained our general vision, vibe, and hopes for our day, it was obvious Sofi had a clear idea of what we wanted and she hit the ground running. I cannot even fathom what our wedding would've been like without her. Every detail was carefully curated. She stuck to our budget and honestly made everything so enjoyable with her bubbly, fun, and kind personality. She felt like (and I'd like to this was!) a close friend throughout the course of the year that we planned our wedding, and then the day of the wedding came and she was all business (I mean that in the most respectful and awe-inspiring way). Her and her team could not have made the day easier or more stress-free for us. She was on top of everything and her attention never wavered from doing everything she could to make it the best day ever for us. There was even a small detail that was wrong with our drink menu at the bar; we had incorporated our dogs' names and a sketch of them, and the wrong sketch had been placed next to the wrong dog name. We wouldn't have been upset in the slightest, and yet Sofi made a call and had the corrected drink menu on its way within seriously only 20 minutes! Our special day just would not have been the same without Sofi's calm demeanor, attention to detail, and unique eye for design.
100/100 - would hire again. I knew that hiring a wedding planner wasn’t just a want, but an absolute NEED for us (for me, really). And once that decision was made, I went to all my trusty wedding vendor friends and read all of their vendor recommendations and found Sofi. The moment we had our first call to the day of, Sofi was a gem! On our initial call she asked what my budget was and details/vision of our day and recommended what service we should go with - there was NO pressure at all. Working with Sofi, I felt like I had someone in my corner. She was there if/when I needed her. I also appreciated the reminder emails she would send out to help keep us on track! Our day would not have been as perfect as it was without her. From start to finish, utter perfection. Even with the little snaffoo with the caterer, Sofi made sure I got something to eat (lactose intolerance brides IYKYK). Hiring Sofi and getting to know her was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Wonderful human all around!
Outstanding experience, exceeded all expectations
We hired Sofi as our wedding manager and we were extremely happy with that decision. We knew we didn't need a full-on planner but from the advice of others, wanted someone to pass off month-of vendor engagement, timeline creation, and day-of logistics to. Sofi was worth it in every way. She's incredibly responsive, knowledgeable about executing a wedding in KC, and had referrals for bakers, event decor, and other vendors we inquired about. She not only accepts same-sex couples as clients but projects a deep, personal commitment to the belief that our love is worth celebrating. Most importantly, she is an incredibly warm, calming presence during what can be a very stressful period. I could tell she genuinely cared about my well-being and wanted the best possible wedding for me and my partner. We are so thankful we found Sofi and would recommend her to others without hesitation.
Best KC wedding planner
My husband and I got married in the Crossroads in April and had the most beautiful day thanks to Sofi! Without her we would not have had the day that we envisioned! Sofi did so much, she was in constant communication with vendors, flipped the ceremony space into a reception space, checked in on us throughout the day to see if we needed anything, and so much more! We cannot thank her enough for everything she did. Our wedding day was flawless because of her! I highly recommend Sofi to anyone looking for a kind and professional wedding planner or coordinator!
