About Stephanie & Rose
Stephanie Rose Events is named in honor of two very special women, the Founder Kristin Watkins’ grandmothers, Stephanie Garbaczewski and Rose Collins.
Stephanie played the piano, enjoyed Ukrainian folk dancing and was proud of family traditions. She was close to her mother and the two spent days cooking holiday feasts for their family.
Rose was a spirited woman who loved the color purple, big, sparkly jewelry and lots of perfume. She had an active social life and enjoyed traveling.
Very different women, both were born into strong families of modest means and raised in New York City. And even though they never met, together they built a family based on faith and love. And isn’t that what marriage is all about?
