Get To Know Me!


I'm Sierra, the human behind Blackfern Events! Get inside my head for 20 Questions and Answers:

Why weddings?

Why NOT weddings? Love is awesome. Weddings are awesome. I can't think of a cooler job (...except professional wolf-petter. Is that a thing?)

Zodiac sign?

Capricorn. I (clearly) love lists, challenges, being outdoors, and sarcasm. This also explains my affinity for goats.

Personality Type?

ISTJ. You know: the analytical, efficient, Scandinavian first impressions one. It takes me a minute to warm up, but I promise I don't bite!

What's on your iPod?

A little bit of everything, but you'll usually catch me listening to Anberlin. I have a tattoo to prove it! Other favorites include Nirvana, Radiohead, Fleetwood Mac and David Bowie.

Talent show?

The somewhat impressive (and admittedly useless) ability to recite the film Dan in Real Life in its entirety.

Favorite color?

Clothing? Black. Flowers? Blue. Decor? Grey.

Go-to TV show?

Frasier, every time.

I collect ______?

Tattoos. Framed insects. Chapstick in the bottom of my bag.

Best part of a wedding?

The post-ceremony high! The couple is always overwhelmed, giggly, and intensely cute.

AM or PM?

Most definitely PM (but my sunny morning personality can be bought with a good cup of tea or the promise of adventure).

Guilty pleasure?

Thanks to my Australian exchange student back in high school, Tim Tams. They are chocolatey witchcraft and I cannot be stopped.

I never leave the house without ______?


Favorite hike?

Kalalau Trail, Nāpali Coast State Wilderness Park, Kauai. Absolutely gorgeous!

Best way to start the day?

Cuddles with my husband and our pup, Loki.

Everyone loves dogs! Tell us more about Loki:

Loki is a three-year-old, rambunctious and very kissy Husky-Malamute-Samoyed-German Shepherd mix!

Bad habit?

Toothpicks. But I am still not as cool as James Dean.

Dream travel spot?

Iceland. Brian (the super cute husband) and I are planning to honeymoon there over the summer!

Middle name?

Hali (pronounced like Hayley). Short for Haliaaetus, half the scientific name for an eagle.

Yes, I am named after a bird. (My dad is a biologist). Yes, it is very cool.

Everyone needs to know about ______?

Music: The Knife / Food: Sushi Girl Kauai / Tea: Whispering Pines Tea / Art: Meow Wolf

What do you want to see more of in upcoming weddings?

Colored/sparkly gowns. Custom suits. Dogs. Food trucks. Non-cake desserts. Light shows. Mountains. Llamas. Yurts. GoPros. Tattoos. Weird dancing.

Can we be friends?
