Meet Our Team

Hi! I’m the “C” in CK Events. My parents would say this is the industry I was born to be in, back in elementary school I would beg them to subscribe to all the bridal magazines that I could get my hands on. I would sit for hours reading through them and creating gorgeous events in my head!

I am always in planning mode, whether I’m planning the next big event or just dinner for the night. My mind is always creating a to-do list for myself. I have a weird happy obsession when I can cross off my tasks on my to-do list. I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. I live with my handsome husband, Tyler and our dog Abby! We are also expecting a little girl in June!

When I’m not planning a wedding, you will find me spending time with my family and taking the time on weekends to enjoy everything that Portland has to offer! I’m always up for girl time though! I LOVE getting pampered with manicures and pedicures and drinking champagne, of course!

MEET CHELSEA

I am the “K” - Hooray!  I always knew that I wanted to own my own business but I was not sure what that meant until I was introduced to the industry by Chels.

Once we started working weddings together, it was something that felt so natural and I felt like I should have been doing this all along. I love so many different aspects of our business, I love working with our clients, I love creating and designing their events, and I love the friends we have made in this industry.

My number one passion in life is my family! I have an amazing husband and two wonderful little girls!! I cherish all of the time we get to spend together and I feel so grateful to be able to do something I love and also have the flexibility to make my family my first priority. We love exploring new places and spending time with friends.

If I could eat out every night I would. Manicures make me feel refreshed and champagne makes my night! Cheers!

MEET KAYLA

Hi there! I’m excited to be a part of the CK team! My family can attest to the fact that I’ve always loved planning the perfect party.

Whether it’s dinner with the neighbors or an elaborate wedding, I love creating a welcoming, beautiful environment for people to gather and enjoy! I discovered my passion for weddings in my teens and have been working in the industry since 2005. Over the years, I’ve read every wedding book I can get my hands on, taken classes in floral, design, photography, and more, and passionately immersed myself in the wedding community. Marriage is a beautiful commitment and I love creating a memorable wedding day that captures the personality of my clients!

I’m a born and raised Oregon girl. I love making a home with my wonderful husband, Ryan, my step-son Jadon, and our mischievous kitty, Tabby. In my downtime, I love to explore my beautiful state, surround myself with family and friends, and sip coffee at cozy local shops.
