My Simple Soirée is a full service event management & styling company founded in 2012. Whether hosting a wedding or a birthday party, it’s the details that matter. MSS provides our clients with the one on one focused planning needed for memorable events and the DIY tools for smaller, intimate gatherings.


Founders: Jeri Purdy, Erin Warner & Allyssa Keefer

Jeri is a mom of 4 girls under the age of 8. She knows that planning is key when it comes to hosting an event.  Jeri has 12 years of event management experience.  She began her career with the Republican Party in Indiana and has worked with various non profit organizations in the areas of fundraising and event management prior to collaborating with Erin and Ally in 2012 when they founded My Simple Soirée.  Currently Jeri is the Lead Planner for Corperate, Non Profit and Community Outreach for My Simple Soiree.

Allyssa is a Grace College graduate with a degree in Business Administration & Marketing. Allyssa has always had a love for planning parties ever since she planned a backyard carnival for her friends at eight years old!

In addition to planning events, she enjoy playing volleyball in community leagues, wake-surfing, and baking! None of these can compare to her most recent adventure of welcoming her first child Mila.


Erin graduated from Grace College with a degree in business and marketing. When she started event planning with a local orthopedic company out of college, she knew it was the career she wanted to pursue. A year and a half later, My Simple Soirée was founded. Erin realizes the stress and planning that goes into parties, and the busyness that life in every stage brings, and is looking forward to bringing simplicity to party planning. Erin and her husband, Kyle, are excited to welcome their first baby (boy) in July!

Ally and Erin are the Lead Wedding Planners for My Simple Soiree.


In July of 2016 MSS added Associate Event Coordinator, Lauren Martzell, to the team. 

Lauren is an undergraduate as well as MBA graduate of Indiana Wesleyan University. She comes from a long line of a family of entrepreneurs, and has an intense love for business and its continual growth and development through strategy and organization.
