See Who’s Behind the Scenes Making the Magic Happen

Tracy Dapp, Owner/Lead Professional Wedding Planner™

“The Wedding Fairy Godmother”

After planning my own wedding in 2007, I quickly realized that I loved all aspects of the planning process and knew I wanted to learn more about the industry. I would read wedding blogs, every book imaginable, belonged to many wedding related forums and attended workshops in order to absorb the knowledge of what it takes to become a true wedding planner. To this day, I continually am reading books on weddings and business to better myself and the experience I can bring to our couples. Organization comes as natural to me as breathing; everything has its place and being a bit obsessed with time, makes me a rock star with timelines!

I love working with couples that want to express what matters most to them and who tell their love story through their wedding day details. I want to give you a tranquil wedding day, so you can experience each milestone of the day without worrying about the logistics. My couples trust me because of the relationship we’ve built during the planning process, my years of experience and education and know that I will always be honest and steer them in the right direction.

I received my designation of Professional Wedding Planner™ from the Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC). I am also a “Distinguished Graduate” of their Professional Development Program. I’m an active member in the organization by attending state meetings, the Business of Brides annual conference and mentoring aspiring new wedding planners.

I love to travel with my husband; whether it’s across the country or just a weekend away to Cape Cod, hanging out with my friends & family enjoying a cocktail or curled up on the couch watching my bazillion favorite TV shows {yes, I’m a TV junkie}. We’re quite adventurous in trying different things at least once…skydiving & a hot air balloon ride to name a few! I certainly don’t look the type who has them, but I have quite a few tattoos that tell an interesting story about my life. I also have a wee-bit of a shoe fetish and appreciate the gorgeousness of beautiful shoes!


I’ve built a team that is as hardworking, talented and dedicated to making your wedding day as wonderful and worry-free as I do. I truly couldn’t do it without them. Check out who’s by my side making your wedding day come to life…

Michelle Stewart, Director of Design/Lead Planner

Michelle is making her way to the New England area and will be joining the Inked Events team in 2018 as our second Lead Planner. She is also the Owner of our “sister” company,  award winning DYV Events that will focus on corporate and non-profit events. I’m excited to have her!

I may be new to the New England area, but not new to events. I bring a unique perspective to this industry, being able to use my eclectic background in design and organization that allows me to make events come to life.

I believe that we only have one chance to bring our couples vision to reality and working together with our couples and their vendor team is of utmost importance. Being from the south, I am excited about bringing my southern charm, sense of humor, the ability to discover the heartbeat of an event and make it come to life to the Inked Events team.

I am also an active member in the Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC) organization by attending state meetings and the annual Business of Brides Conference.

When I’m not working, I can be found snuggling and playing with my cute dog, Maddie, spending time with my adorable nieces and my village of rockstar family and friends. I also enjoy reading, writing, singing, playing the guitar, crocheting and binge watching shows on the Hallmark Channel.

Lisa Pratt, Associate Planner

Lisa joined Inked Events team in 2015 and continues to be an asset to the team…even though she is currently living in sunny North Carolina. She continues to bring her friendly and outgoing personality to the team; has the ability to do whatever is thrown at her and has an eagerness to learn more about the wedding industry.

I’m very punctual, detailed orientated and love organization. I have always enjoyed planning special events for my family and company holiday parties — give me a reason to have a party and I am hosting it. My love for weddings came when my addiction to watching the entire wedding shows {Say Yes to the Dress, Four Weddings, I Found My Gown} on TLC began.

I received my certification as a Certified Wedding Planner through Penn Foster. I also have a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Services, where I have worked with adults with developmental disabilities for over 26 years until I retired in 2016.

I’ve been happily married to my husband for over 30 years and we have two grown children. We are currently living in North Carolina enjoying a new adventure in the south. I’m a huge New England Patriots fan and during football season I am known for doing my ‘pre-game rituals’ before each game. In my spare time, I love taking a motorcycle ride with my husband, having my nails done {I always tend to have unique designs on them} and enjoying cocktails with friends and family.

I’m known as the “Google Queen”. If a friend, family member or colleague asks me a question or I need to research a topic, I will always find the answer.

Erica Panacopoulos, Associate Planner

Erica joined the Inked Events team in 2017 and has brought a new perspective to the team. Her hardworking and friendly personality is unmistakable; she also has the ability to do whatever is thrown at her and does whatever it takes for an event. I love her drive and eagerness to learn what the wedding industry is all about and isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty {or soapy} to do it.

After getting married in 2016, I realized that it was time to harness my love of organization and planning and reached out to Tracy at Inked Events. I have always had a passion for helping others. As a teenager, I used to clean and organize my friends rooms or help them pack for family vacations or school semesters abroad just because I loved to organize!

Spreadsheets, timelines and Kate Spade planners are all bonuses to this role, the real success is seeing all the details of the couple’s dream day come to life. On wedding days, I’m the energizer bunny! I thrive in a busy environment, I get so excited when we arrive to set up all the details knowing that I will help create the magical setting where our couples will say their vows and celebrate their union with their families and friends.

When I’m not working on a wedding, I’m working at a local museum in the education department. I work with children, animals and create events for the staff and volunteers. In my spare time, you can find me at a good mimosa brunch, spending time in Boston with friends or working on my very own fixer-upper with my husband.
