Kelly – Director of Events



Kelly is our Director of Events or team mom as we love to call her!  She handles our busy event schedule and also trains and manages our amazing team of assistants!

Kelly fell in love with events as a teenager working for a caterer. It was an unexpected career path at the time, she didn’t even think that event planning would have been a possible career for her, but once she saw how even the smallest detail can leave a lasting impression on the most memorable day of someones life, she knew that she had to be apart of it all.  Kelly’s favorite part of the job is making sure that every part of the wedding seemlessly reflects the couples personalities and their relationship together.  When Kelly isn’t working she enjoys using her youthful energy to explore everything that Colorado has to offer. She loves traveling and has a long bucket list of the places she wants to go. She loves learning about the new cultures she encounters, which is a great thing about weddings because you can see the traditions and rituals that each couples culture and heritage bring.

Check out what recent clients are saying about working with Kelly!

Kelly and TGE were the best decision I made when it came to my wedding.  From day one, Kelly was responsive to my questions and took the time to suggest some amazing vendors!  On my wedding day she was calm and really put me and my family at ease.  My venue had a super tight set up time frame and I was worried things were not going to get done. Not only did Kelly get it done, but it looked amazing!  I have no idea what I would have done without her!


I didn’t have to think about anything on my wedding day because every vendor knew exactly where to be and when. This was all thanks to Kelly!  I would 100% recommend Kelly and The Gardner Effect!
