Welcome, Sweet Friend

The CK team started with two best friends who decided to bring their love of weddings to the forefront of their friendship. It has now grown to a team of 4 great friends that all bring a unique vision to every event. The bond we each get to create with our clients is what keeps us inspired. We have all worked together to design an experience for our clients that is organized, supportive, and creative.

Whether you are planning an extravagant event or a romantic elopement, we are here to support you along the way. We hope that you will take a moment to reach out, so that we have the opportunity to share a cup of coffee or a glass of wine together as we begin your planning journey.

We are currently planning weddings in Portland, Bend, and beyond. 


Hi! I’m Chelsea - 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 am Kayla - the “K!" Hooray!

Unlike Chelsea I did not dream of my wedding day or anyone else’s wedding for that matter.

I always thought it was so awesome that Chelsea knew what she wanted to do with her life since she was 3 years old but that was not me. 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.

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! 

Hi friends!
I am always looking for a reason to celebrate, so naturally, I love any and everything wedding-related. I am so fond of the quick and creative energy of an event, but I enjoy the organizational aspects too. I am so excited to be part of the CK team!

I am an Oregon native, but decided to head for the sunshine during my college years. While studying business management in Southern California, I was introduced to event planning and design. After getting a taste of the Los Angeles wedding scene, I knew I wouldn’t be able to stay away for long when I moved back to my home state. I love seeing someone’s vision come to life, and creating a gathering that allows people to connect and enjoy themselves.

CK Events was absolutely amazing to work with!!! We simply could not have planned our wedding without them – and it turned out better than we ever dreamed. Throughout the planning process, they were organized, responsive and kept things on track (and on budget). Logistics of a destination wedding can be complex – Chelsea and Kayla made the entire process seamless. Not only did they keep it as stress-free as possible, they made it a fun process that brought us closer together. Thank you, Chelsea and Kayla, for making our wedding such an special experience!

Where do I begin? There is not enough praise for Kayla and her team. They listened to everything my husband and I wanted on our big day, and were so accommodating and flexible when we didn't quite know, either! They worked tirelessly to make sure every detail was taken care of and that our wedding was within our budget!
Our wedding day felt like such a dream! Kayla took care of every detail and it was so nice to not have to worry about a single thing. She did great and keeping us informed of our timeline and let us just enjoy the simple moments! 
I would absolutely recommend Kayla and her team to plan your big day!! They are such a dream to work with. Thank you for everything, Kayla!!
