We are Southwest Florida’s only Husband and Wife Wedding and Event Planning Team.

…From beach weddings along Naples, Marco Island, and Fort Myers Beach, the barrier islands of Sanibel and Captiva, destination weddings and second marriage celebrations, or private events, country clubs, and waterfront venues along the Caloosahatchee River – we’ve planned and coordinated events all throughout Southwest Florida.

    Planning a wedding or event is a journey. Our first step in that journey is to explore how you envision the final destination. We want to get to know you! We are not just planners; we are advocates for you throughout the entire process. Often, when we first meet our couples, there is a recurring theme of excitement and stress. Harnessing that excitement and eliminating that stress is our first priority.

The difference between an ordinary wedding & an extraordinary wedding is the KC Weddings & Events experience.

     We are the only husband and wife wedding and event planning team throughout Southwest Florida. Our diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and life experiences complement each other very nicely, making us uniquely qualified to help you with your special day.

      Kara is naturally creative and organized; much of her raw talent stems from her years working as an educator for elementary students on the autism spectrum. After her wedding more than five years ago, she felt a calling and found her true passion helping clients plan the most memorable events for themselves or their loved ones. Knowing passion and creativity alone were not enough, Kara decided to pursue formal education and certification from The Bridal Society and participates in continuing education on a regular basis.

     Brian, who is also certified from The Bridal Society, served in the United States Navy during Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom and deployed twice in support of combat operations on the USS Harry S. Truman. He attributes much of his discipline, focus, and drive to be the best (for himself and his clients), to his experience throughout those challenging years. After honorable separation, Brian enrolled in college and completed his Bachelor’s Degree in Small Business Management with a concentration in Entrepreneurship.

      When they’re not planning weddings, Brian and Kara enjoy taking trips with their fuzzy kids Max and Ozzie out on their boat to remote beaches. Kara likes shelling and relaxing on the beach while Brian can’t wait to get some lines in the water.

WHAT HAPPY COUPLES ARE SAYING

“Kara was professional, helpful, and very flexible. She listened to what we were looking for, and made suggestions and offered to help with things we were unsure of. It was so nice knowing we had someone looking out for what we wanted, and not the best interest of the venue. So glad we had Kara in our corner!”
“Kara was amazing! Best thing I did was hire her. I planned all of our wedding and Kara tied everything together perfectly the day of our wedding! She was very responsive to emails and texts in the months/days leading up to our wedding. She is the best at what she does and I was so thankful to have had expertise and organization throughout our entire wedding day.”
“Kara is absolutely amazing! We planned a destination wedding and Kara made it so easy and less stressful for us. She is extremely flexible and will go out of her way to give you exactly what you want. I had no idea where to begin, she has so many great ideas and is very knowledgeable with her line of work. She also was understanding when it came to my crazy work schedule :)”
“Kara was amazing during the planning of my wedding. We had a beach wedding and I was from out of town, so given all of the obstacles she did an amazing job. She pulled out all the stops for my wedding of 45 people, just as if we were hosting a wedding of 200.”
” . . . And when I say she was on top of it, she was on TOP of it. From coordinating a day of time line down to the minute to dealing with mini disasters throughout the whole process. I was so stress free the entire day, did not deal with one vendor and had an amazing time because of her hard work and dedication. It shows that she truly loves what she does.”
“We decided at the last minute to hire a wedding day coordinator for our daughter special day. She had pretty much organization the entire wedding then realized she was going to be in it and not able to coordinate things with all the vendors and enjoy the day too. That’s when Kara stepped in to save the day. She did a fabulous job! Thanks for everything! You’re the BEST!”
