While our clients are off getting ready or sitting back relaxing prior to their event, our team is on-site to ensure all the smallest of details are falling into place. With our detailed “day of” schedule and event notes, we check and double check that all aspects of your event have come together, whether it is a simple decoration or the bustling of a wedding gown. Meet our primary event planning contacts below. In addition to Kim and Carrie, there is also an important team of “YI Girls” you may not see until the day of the event. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to execute our events as thoroughly as we do!
Kim is the queen bee behind You’re Invited, which she founded in 2003. She left behind careers in interior design and sales management for multi-million dollar clients for her love of planning amazing events, especially weddings. Kim is known for her keen eye for detail, ability to uber multi-task, the friendship and trust she builds with her clients and for the way she makes both the planning process and the day of a lot of FUN! Kim has planned and coordinated hundreds of weddings. She’s the ultimate perfectionist, but she’s also approachable, realistic and down to earth…just a few of the reasons her clients love her.
When not planning weddings and private events, Kim spends a majority of her time taking care of her husband and 3 kids. She spends quite a bit of her non-wedding time being a personal taxi driver to all types of activities: soccer, baseball, basketball, cheer, dance, trampoline, swim and dive. Whew! She also enjoys shopping, lunching, traveling, attending KU basketball games with her husband and let’s not forget her summer pool time! Her friends and family know her as being the ultimate organizer of events and activites for all!
Carrie has 10+ years of experience coordinating weddings and events. Starting in 2001 she began helping friends plan their weddings. Joining the You’re Invited team in 2007, Carrie specializes in day of coordination. She works behind the scenes on the day of to oversee each element of the event and make sure every little detail come to perfect fruition. Clients love Carrie because she is organized, profession and fun to work with!
