Alison Laesser-Keck is a planner/designer and the founder of Viva La Diva Events. Armed with a degree in counseling, a west coast/midwest upbringing, and a decade of experience in corporate, non-profit and social event planning, she is the quintessential people person; a social butterfly who is inspired by the lives of both friends and strangers alike. In her work with Viva La Diva, she has been recognized by the likes of MarthaStewart.com, Fox 2, and Hour Detroit. Past clients include Starbucks and Microsoft, to name a few. In 2008, after working with venues in Seattle, Alison decided to branch out on her own and thus, Viva La Diva was born.
Bryan Keck comes to Viva La Diva with over fifteen years in hospitality at award-winning restaurants and lounges across the country, where much of his focus involved the coordination of private events. Truly the analytic "left brained" version to Alison's creativity-loving "right", Bryan's strength is his ability to organize the planning process and break it down into small, manageable steps. In addition to being our business manager, his primary role is handling the logistics involved in event production, although his passion especially lies in creating and cultivating relationships with our clients and their families.
