Meet the Team

GRETCHEN CULVER
Owner/Lead Planner

I planned my first wedding in 2002 and was hooked.

My Art History degree is more useful than you’d think it would be.

I have a thing for stripes.

My three kids are amazing and my husband is inspiring.

I consider myself an amateur foodie and champagne connoisseur.

I am the commissioner of the Rocket Science Fantasy Football League.

I love watches and Vitaminwater.

If I weren’t an event planner I would probably be an interior designer or a painter.

I am CXO and co-founder of Rentivist.

LAURA ADLER
Event Scientist

I have been with Rocket Science Weddings & Events since it began,
I was an Event Scientist before that title existed.

My specialty is the execution of Gretchen’s big ideas.

I love good food, and my husband is the best cook I know.

I built robots in high school (no rockets, though).

If I lived in a warmer climate I would swim every day.

I read more books than may be entirely healthy.

I will brag about my kids with the slightest provocation (they’re pretty great).

SHOREY TUETKEN
Event Scientist

I love taking vacations, planning and dreaming about them.

I am from Iowa and I’m proud…I bleed Black and Gold. Go Hawks!

My family is my foundation and my inspiration.

I love the craft beer craze and finding fun ways to incorporate it into my events.

I love the motto “educate and collaborate” when working with our clients.

I love earrings.

If I wasn’t planning amazing events you would be watching me as a
broadcaster on ESPN!

LIZ MCPHERSON
Assistant Extraordinaire

I love everything kitchen related … cooking, gadgets, baking, etc.

If organizing things was considered a hobby, it would be my #1 hobby.

I love trying new wines and beer.

My freckles are awesome.

Dance is a huge inspiration to me.

My husband’s and step-daughter’s laughter truly is the best medicine.

I had the K102 Wakeup Crew broadcast from the backseat of my car one morning.
