Weddings, birthdays, showers: This event planner can make your next celebration a special one.

There’s a lot of work that goes into planning a big event.


From finding the right venue and setting the menu to decorations, invitations and everything in between, working out the details can be stressful and time consuming.

That’s where Megan Lutrick comes in.


Megan is an event planner, specializing in weddings, showers, corporate events, family reunions and birthday celebrations.


If you can host it, she can plan it.


Megan discovered her knack for event planning when she was a student at Tarleton State University.


“I was in Sigma Alpha sorority and that’s when I learned that I have a passion for planning events,” she told Beneath the Surface News. “I also worked at Old Doc’s Soda Shop in Dublin and planned events for them as well.”


Megan’s business is called V6 Ranch Weddings & Events, but don’t let the name fool you; she does not operate a venue.


“V6 Ranch is the name of my grandparents’ ranch in Brazoria, and when they passed, I wanted to carry on their legacy so I decided to incorporate that name into my business,” she said.


Megan’s creativity, organizational skills and love of Pinterest led her to the dream of starting her own business.

She offers a wide range of services, but specializes in weddings.


“The most important thing I can offer a bride on her wedding day is peace of mind,” she said. “Brides should be able to just relax and soak it up; they should sit back, have their hair and makeup done and have a drink.


“I’ll take care of everything else.”


That everything else can include making a timeline, organizing the rehearsal dinner, vendor arrivals, decorating, troubleshooting and assisting with setup and cleanup.


And when it comes to birthday celebrations for any age, Megan can create a party you will never forget.

“I planned a secret garden tea party in our backyard for my daughter’s birthday,” she said. “We had teapots and flowers everywhere and the little girls wore tea party dresses and hats.


“It was the cutest thing ever.”


V6 Ranch Weddings & Events also offers free consultations.


“I don’t charge for consultations because I want to get to know you and find out your needs. I will formulate a price after the meeting,” she said. “I can work with any budget.”


Megan said she is already 75 percent booked for fall weddings this year, but if you would like to schedule an appointment to plan your next event, call or text her at 979-900-8223.
