Courtney Judy

Owner, Planner, Officiant

Courtney Judy opened Judy Occasions in November 2014, and obtained her ABC Certified Wedding Planning Certificate in early 2015. Her goal was to provide a budget-friendly service to brides who may not have the financial freedom to hire a full service planner. 

She is ordained in the Commonwealth of Kentucky through Universal Life Church Ministries; and will be expanding officiant services to Indiana by Summer 2021.

When not in planning mode, Courtney enjoys time spent with her husband and their three children. She is an avid reader, and loves breakfast foods at any time of the day. 

Penny Kistner



Penny Kistner is a lead planner and  joined Judy Occasions in May 2015. Penny has an extensive background in hospitality and creative services. Her wedding planning journey began in Massachusetts, and has amazingly traveled to Kentucky. 

With Penny's creative mind and education in interior design, she is easily able to transform any space into the wedding of your dreams. 

When not in planning mode, Penny thoroughly enjoys visits to all of the coffee shops, making memories with her husband and children, and visiting her loved ones in Massachusetts.
