While planning one of the most important days of your life, it’s essential that your vision is materialized—down to the last detail. But it’s also important to me that we go slow and let you savor it all, from the time you and I meet and shake hands to your loving, heartfelt send-off. 

After working at a country club in Arizona, and accepting a position and being whisked away to Michigan, I’ve finally found myself in Portland, where I’ve cultivated the roots of what is now Kelsey Timberlake Events. When it comes to bringing your wedding to life, I know it’s more than spreadsheets and budgeting. It’s more than save-the-dates and boutonnieres. It’s working together to be the catalyst for inimitable memories on the day another part of your life becomes beautifully, wonderfully whole. Welcome, I’m so happy to have you here. 

What would life be without a little unexpectedness? 

Stunning moments like these can’t be forced, just gently molded and shaped. You’ll see that the rest comes naturally. If you’ve found yourself here, you and I most likely share the same view. While event planning is the name of the game, spontaneity, excitement, and intimacy always weave themselves into the story. 

We are living in a snapshot era, where everything is fast-paced and each moment is captured and remembered.
