What We’re All About

Amanda Stephenson

Chief Events Officer 

Amanda has always been passionate about creating events that truly tell a story. A guest should understand your vision from that first email or invitation through the moment of your event. This is true whether you’re hosting a wedding, fundraiser, or corporate retreat. An event can share your love story, company missions, or why your non-profit matters. Every story is unique and every event is unique.


With over a dozen years in the event industry, Amanda has managed and executed conferences, retreats, weddings, and galas. Every event requires the same level of detail, organization, and creativity. Event planners have to find that magical balance between design and execution, not only creating the vision but following through on the details.

Amanda calls the shores of Ghost Lake, AB home and when she’s not creating your event, she can be found paddleboarding, playing with her kitties, or spending time with her family and friends.

Why Lily and Larch? 

I grew up in the beautiful prairies of Saskatchewan and is now based in the foothills of Alberta. The iconic prairie lily of Saskatchewan and the breathtaking Larch tree of the Rocky Mountains both show the beauty of nature that inspire my passion for design and the grounding force that I find in nature.  When naming my company, Lily and Larch became the perfect representation of my history and the future I see for this company.
