We have had the great joy of planning, designing and executing weddings and events for 20+ years in the Midwest and beyond. We have worked with Brides who prefer tradition and those who fancy some ‘unexpected-done-well’.
We have had the great pleasure of hosting intimate affairs under the stars and the grandest of occasions in stately ballrooms. We have had the great fun of surprising guests with fireworks and the Bride + Groom with a 300 guest Flash Mob.
We would love to meet you and would be tickled pink to hear your Love Story and your vision for your day. We are reverent when we promise a joyful journey to I Do and gladly guarantee your Best Day Ever.
I LOVE to celebrate life's moments. I have 20+ years’ experience in Event Planning and Designing from ‘All Things Wedding’ to Corporate, Non-Profit, Community, Private and Holiday Celebrations whether hosting 50 or 5000. I love to ‘idea-inspire’ and I specialize in creating and designing memorable wedding celebrations which are completely custom and YOUniquely the Bride and Groom. I have worked with Brides from Chicago, Crown Point, Denver, Dallas, Lake Geneva, New York, Portsmouth, The Quad Cities, Sacramento, Washington DC, Rockford and the surrounding area. We have saved each time, stress and money without sacrificing design or experience, instead elevating the event for the Bride and her guests, and allowing her to be fully present for each moment. Our reputation and experience allow us access to the very best vendors and our presence allows every vendor to operate at the highest level. We prepare each vendor for each meeting to optimize everyone's time. We know what is needed and what won't be missed. We communicate and confirm each vendor for the day and run point for all on the Big Day. We begin with a meeting in order for you to download your vision and wishes. if needed, we help you marry your style to your venue, the time-of-year and your budget. We construct a Day-Of Timeline which allows you to envision your day and know what you will need from each vendor. We love what we do and would love to hear your vision for your day and help you, too! Kiss Kiss, Kelly Backyard Soiree Weddings and Events
