Krissy Mougeotte - Arnal

Owner & Event Planner

Meet the crazy, loud, down to earth and the person you've all grown to love... Krissy Mougeotte-Arnal.

The owner and operator of Events by Krissy. She is the woman behind all the chaos and wears many hats in the business. The first and most important hat she wears is mom!!! She is a mom of two beautiful children and a wife to Mike.  She was born and raised in Santa Maria by her two loving parents, Ronda (Claborn) & Darrell Mougeotte. Her parents showed her how to follow her dreams and get your hands dirty when needed. Krissy is not only a mother and a wife; she is also the planner, the coordinator, the designer, the social media guru, the carpenter, the server, the bartender, the florist, the bookkeeper, the HR department... running a small business means that she has to do it all!


After the birth of their first child (2015) and years and years of (free family and friends) experience under her belt, she decided to start Krissy's Kreations known now as Events by Krissy.  Krissy worked part time as the Catering & Event Director at Blacklake Golf Resort while still trying to get the business off the ground. In 2017, she had decided to go back to school (crazy cause she was one of the oldest in the program) to learn what was being taught in the industry. In 2019, she gave birth to her second child and continued to follow through with the program. A mom, a wife, a student, an employee and a business owner never prepared her for 2020!!! But not even covid could get her down!! December 2020 Krissy graduated with an Associates in Science in Culinary Arts & Management. This degree helped her learn the behind the scenes of the business that she has grown to love.

Krissy would not be where she is if she didn't have the best TRIBE behind her!

Krissy's moto "always let your weird shine through!"
