KELLY, WEDDING COORDINATOR
Where are you from?
I’m a native San Diegan. I love living near the beach and being active outside in our beautiful San Diego weather.
How long have you been in the wedding and events industry?
I have been planning events for over 4 years now, with experience in weddings, fundraisers, cocktail receptions and corporate events.
What is your favorite part of wedding coordination?
I have a few favorite parts in the wedding coordination process. I really enjoy bringing people together, celebrating love with friends and family, and creating a stress-free wedding for the bride and groom. During the planning phase, I like when I can use my creativity to plan unique weddings. Finally, I enjoy bringing everything together on the day of wedding to see all our months of hard work come to fruition.
When you are not coordinating weddings, what do you enjoy doing?
I have taught fitness classes for 8 years now, including cardio kickboxing, strength training and Zumba. I was on the swim team in high school and still enjoy swimming laps (it’s a great time to think through things). I like cooking with friends, meeting for happy hour, or staying in with a bottle of wine and a movie. I recently got into reading murder mystery novels, when I find some free time.
Where is your favorite place to vacation?
I love going to tropical places like Hawaii or the Caribbean where I can sit on the beach, snorkel, and read. Every October I go to San Francisco with my mom to go shopping, bike the Golden Gate Bridge and try the amazing food. I love Italy but haven’t been in about 10 years. I even took Italian in college!
What are your favorite restaurants in San Diego?
I like happy hour at Season 52 in UTC, fish tacos at Brigantine, “The Carlsbad” pizza from Pizza Port, Mexican food at Casa Guadalajara in Old Town, and Italian food from almost anywhere. Oh, and I LOVE Yogurtland!
How do you want to be remembered?
I want to be remembered for being patient, creative and dependable. I also want to be remembered for being able to handle whatever kinks are thrown my way. I’m humbled to be part of this team and I can’t wait to create a memorable and fantastic event for you!
