A born planner with an eye for innovative design, Kelly is the driving visionary force behind A Savvy Event. Before founding ASE, Kelly’s impeccable eye for the all-things aesthetic was sharpened by her years working for both the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company and Fairmont Hotels and Resorts. She brings professional interior-design training and over a decade’s worth of experience in planning, consulting and coordinating events to every wedding she plans.
Kelly’s natural attention to detail and thorough understanding of each couple’s distinct style makes her an unparalleled guiding force in the planning process. Kelly takes time getting to know each bride and groom, and – from invitation sourcing to linen sampling to cocktail crafting – weaves their vision cohesively and flawlessly throughout their event. One of her favorite parts of working with couples is forming lifelong friendships – while her relationship with each couple usually starts with wedding planning, it often continues on to see her planning other milestone-events in their lives (think: baby showers, birthdays, anniversary parties).
When Kelly isn’t busy bringing her brides’ visions to life, you can find her spending time with her two daughters – usually in the form of a spontaneous day-trip or an outing to a new restaurant in town.
