President & Creative Director

As the creative visionary behind Evantine Design, Brian Kappra’s passion for storytelling is evident in every aspect of his design firm. He is the master of installing breathtaking—and often logistically ambitious—environments, despite the challenging realities of event production. With over three decades in the special event industry, Brian’s signature designs are custom-crafted with imaginative elements, theatrical impact and proprietary, artistic details. It’s no wonder that his event interiors attract and inspire an enviable roster of A-list clientele, from respected corporations and charitable organizations, to the area’s most influential tastemakers and society hosts. Brian is also a generous contributor to charitable causes — donating time, talent, and resources to the Abramson Cancer Center, MANNA, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, amfAR, The Transplant Foundation, Project HOME, the Foundation for Breast & Prostate Health, as well as countless others. When he’s not designing show-stopping events, you can find Brian watching the sunset from the dock at his New Jersey lake house, zip-lining through the tree tops in Costa Rica, or holding his nieces’ hands as they stroll around Disney World.

“Design is in everything we do, and it’s in between everything we do. In the planning, artistry, storytelling, and philosophy of what we do.”

Brian Kappra, Creative Director


Brian Kappra hasn’t met a party concept he couldn’t conquer. He won’t even tell a client that something simply can’t be done. He just makes the magic HAPPEN!”

– Times Philadelphia Magazine

“Evantine Design’s Brian Kappra gets into the heads of clients to create stunningly original, and markedly personal, event designs.”

Philadelphia Style Magazine

“With a background in event planning and landscape design, Brian Kappra and his team take everyday elements like mirrors and vegetables and use them to create sculptural displays and eye-catching decorative elements that make their events truly unique — rivaling even the most grand New York affairs.”

Brian, every girl dreams of what her wedding will look like. Because of you and only you, the night was ABSOLUTELY perfect. It was beyond magical. It was everything I have ever dreamed of and so much more. It was jaw-dropping amazing. I keep using the word magical because it’s truly what you are – you take a boring room with walls and carpet, and transform it into this dream wonderland. This candlelit, red, magical dream world. I couldn’t believe my eyes. The candles, the flowers, the glitter, the sparkle – it was truly UNBELIEVABLE.” Forever grateful and much love, Janey
