“I love being an integral part in my client’s event and sharing in their happiness…”

Lead Event Consultant/Owner
Rhonda Rush

Founded in 2003 in Phoenix Arizona, Impact Events LLC is a full-service event planning firm specializing in social occasions.

Lead event consultant/owner Rhonda Rush has earned an impressive industry reputation from leading resorts, country clubs, venues and vendors.  Rhonda has established herself as a leading wedding and event planner in Arizona. Her company mantra is simple and straight-forward – “always keep the client happy and the event on track.”

Born in Chicago, Illinois and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, Rhonda has an extensive public relations and event planning background.  Upon graduating from the University of Arizona (Go Wildcats!), Rhonda moved to Los Angeles, CA where she spent 10 years working as a publicist in the entertainment industry.  Her wide-range of clientele consisted of actors, producers, directors, production companies and studios.  But it was the planning and executing of the film premieres, after-parties and charity galas that she enjoyed the most!

Upon re-locating back to Phoenix, Rhonda found her niche in the hospitality industry and successfully launched Impact Events.  And she has never looked back!

Ari and Victor’s Wedding
The Scottsdale Resort

“As we look at our photos and video and exchange stories with everyone, it is obvious that it was a truly magical evening, and as near perfect as a wedding can get. Every little detail fit so well with what we wanted to accomplish, and it leaves us at a loss for words when it comes to thanking Rhonda. We are indebted to you for the rest of our lives. We will always look back on the night with such loving memories, and that is thanks to you in large part. Again, thank you, thank you, thank you…this was more than an ‘Impact Event’ for us…you really made it the best day of our life.”
