Hello Friend

Welcome to Lovestruck. We are an event design and planning company based in Nebraska, and we proudly produce celebrations throughout The Midwest. Our company is comprised of three harding-working women, whose skill sets and talents complement and inspire each other. Together we create events that speak uniquely to each client we work with, so treat yourself to an event with hand-picked details and precise execution that will present an experience both you and your guests will cherish. Our attention to detail and imaginative designs offer clients the opportunity to enjoy not only the celebration, but the entire planning and design process. We invite you to explore our website, learn about our creative process, and find inspiration in our past work.

Candace Kalasky

Owner + Creative Director

Candace Kalasky founded Lovestruck in 2011 with sound organizational skills and a keen eye for design. After leaving her career as a web developer, she constructed a unique and intensive event planning process rooted in creative strategy. Candace believes events should express the qualities of the people they are celebrating, so forming relationships with her clients is top priority.

Clients are drawn to Candace’s layered designs filled with intentional details. She works tirelessly to ensure optimal color, scale, texture, and balance are achieved in each design. You will often find her working at her desk with a tape measure, sketchbook, fabric swatches, and pantone color book in arms reach. She never underestimates the power of hard work and a good dance break to energize her creative soul.  

Lindsay Martian

Lead Event Producer

Lindsay joined the Lovestruck team in 2014, but she’s been Candace’s partner in crime (as her sister) for the past 30 years. Her logistically-focused heart manages all of the coordination details of our events. She ensures each client is given the time and attention they deserve throughout the planning process. Her approachable and warm personality are invaluable assets to our team.

Lindsay believes events are built on a foundation of well-documented and verified details. She is passionate about clutter-free spaces, quality time with her family, and efficiently checking off her to-do list with lightening speed. Her organizational skills are utilized beyond our clients’ events. Just stop by our studio, and you will be awestruck by our meticulously organized storage room.

Allison Kuklis


Allison has been working behind the scenes as Lovestruck’s graphic designer for the past five years. She creates all of the tactile design elements for our events including custom event stationery, dinner menus, and hand-painted large-scale signage. Her design talents allow us to produce completely custom and cohesive designs for each client.

Allison comes from a family that loves to craft, so you could say design is in her blood. Her instagram filled with quilting, sewing, and painting projects will make you want to start (and hopefully finish) your own crafting project. When she’s not designing, you will find her spending time with her sidekick Nora, a silver lab.
