"Karen was the ultimate hype lady and felt like a true friend throughout the process. She bulldogs projects and handles her business to make sure we are taken care of." -COURTNEY & ALEX

The best part of being a planner is seeing the smiles on the faces of my couples. When I finished college, I helped a couple of friends plan their weddings then decided to explore a career in the wedding and event industry. I interned with a top wedding planner in Florida and after seeing a few of her lavish events come to life, it sealed my love for weddings.

I worked in the hospitality industry at the Ritz Carlton and Hilton hotels while I built my business then moved to Cincinnati. I thought I'd always be a Florida girl but having been in the Midwest for almost 9 years, I don't see myself anywhere else.

Wedding planning gives me the chance to be creative, meet new people and cultivate new relationships and be witness to love. The best is when our couples become our friends. Honestly - the journey to wedding day brings opportunity to spend a ton of time with some wonderful couples.

When I'm not wedding planning, I love spending time with my husband, Andy and our two boys. We are big travel addicts so we are constantly planning a vacation to explore new places. Our most recent trip took us on a 17 day adventure to Marrakech, Paris, Ireland, Milan & Venice then to Greece where we enjoyed Athens, Santorini & Mykonos.

Meet the team

I met Karen in 2015 and have listened to all of her success stories. I used to be afraid of taking a chance but after being taken under her wing I know that the sky is the limit. These days I’m working with KMC and loving every moment of it! I feel extremely lucky to be part of such a creative and innovative company. I’ve learned so much and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for us!

In my free time I am most likely exploring the outdoors with my puppy Dakota or downtown checking out a new bar or restaurant. Tacos and margs are my weakness and I’m also not afraid to dance out of excitement when my food arrives at the table! Yes, I am one of those girls! If there is a food table nearby, I’m probably in the corner somewhere stuffing my face.

My name is Kyira and I love to be a part of bringing a couple's wedding vision to life and creating beautiful spaces for celebration. Although I am a full time mental health counselor, I enjoy spending weekends with the KMC team, working with our wonderful clients. 

The biggest thing on my bucket list is to create list of all the best restaurants in the United States and travel around the country, eating and trying new things. My husband and I are big foodies so we love to cook. 

When I'm not being a counselor or helping pull together your dream day, I am spending time with my husband and new puppy.

Hi! My name is Dalyn and I am your "behind-the-scenes" girl who is checking on hotel quotes, calling vendors, and making sure we are right on schedule for all things leading up to your big day. My ultimate goal? For you and your spouse to have a beautiful wedding day filled with the best memories celebrating with your loved ones. That's it. I didn't have a wedding planner when I got married and WOW- that would have made my day much more enjoyable and less stressful! 

I graduated college with a degree in Paralegal Studies, but somehow found myself in the wedding industry and have been for the last 5 years. Joining the KMC team in 2020 was seamless and I thoroughly enjoy seeing the fruition of our couple's weddings from contract, to concept and planning, to the actual day.  

I love traveling, laughing, and I’m a firm believer in dancing whenever I hear a good song play (yes, that possibly means at your wedding too!). I enjoy exploring Cincinnati with my three children, not to mention visiting all the exciting new concept bars and restaurants with my husband.
