“Hello! My name is Kelli Shields and I am the lead event planner as well as the owner of Kelli Shields Events. I have always had a desire for event planning and have planned many events for friends and family over the years from weddings, baby showers and surprise birthday parties. And working in the govt contracting arena for the past 15+ years, I had the pleasure of planning dozens of corporate events. All in the Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia area.

Here's What We Do Best
Our full planning experience provides complete support for all aspects of the wedding from start to finish. You will receive expert guidance in venue and vendor selection, budget management, custom design conception, vendor contract negotiation, as well as management of all logistical aspects and wedding execution. We welcome the opportunity to provide planning services for additional weekend events, ensuring all logistics are taken care of so you and your loved ones can revel in the ultimate weekend celebration. The focus of this service is integrating custom design features and meaningful details to curate a seamless guest experience.
With your venue in place, you may have a loose vision of what you want your event to look and feel like, but not sure how to make it all come together. We will work together to discover your style, vibe, and goals and turn those into tangible plans. Our design services include an initial venue site visit, budget formation, a cohesive, custom design concept and plan, selection of trusted design-related vendors, sourcing of all rentals, decor and details, a mockup presentation, as well as management of all logistical aspects and event day execution (see Event Management).
With your event plans in place and vendor team secured, we will step in to manage the remaining details and logistics in the final months leading up to the big day. We’ll work alongside your venue and vendor team to address any logistical challenges and prepare a fool-proof timeline, ensuring all moving parts of the day flow together seamlessly. On the day of your event, our team will be there to manage your vendor team and ensure every detail goes according to plan.
