Our Story

Kim Shanahan--owner, creative director and wedding planner of K&K Events--has always been artistically and creatively driven. For eleven years she designed and created costumes for dance studios and theatrical productions all throughout Northwest Ohio. When her daughter, who is a dancer, went off to college she continued looking for the next creative endeavor. Then on May 8th, 2013, her daughter Kayla called her to tell her the big news--she was engaged! Immediately, Kim focused her design experience and artistic eye on Kayla's visions for her wedding. She assisted her daughter with the overall planning, decor visions, and design execution to fashion the vintage-chic wedding of Kayla's dreams.


It took eighteen months to create the entire wedding, but the results were breathtaking. Kim and Kayla made everything from their own artistic visions. From the programs, seating cards, and invitations to the centerpieces, fresh floral arrangements, burlap flowers, pearl chair backs and other vintage decor; it was all stunning! They even made her own bridesmaids' dresses, vintage photo booth, candy buffet and a rustic cake stand. On the day of Kayla's wedding--August 15th, 2014--not only did two lives become one, but K&K's Events was born.


Kim's love for design and planning turned her business dreams into a reality.  Over the years the business and grown and evolved into what you see today.  Now we have a team of dedicated planners and designers who have a passion for weddings. Each of our planners is committed to getting to know their couples and helping them to design and execute a day that truly reflects their personalities and love story.   The business offers, day-of wedding coordination, planning, design and the brand new Mirror Me photo booth to provide a stress-free day for you and your family. K&K's goal is to take your vision combined with our creativity to create the BEST DAY EVER!
