About Lovely Weddings & Event…
For the past ten years, The Creative Bride has offered event planning and coordination, but in 2017 the company rebranded their event planning side as Lovely Weddings & Events.
“We wanted to provide couples with an option that was down to earth, real and who we would want to work with on our wedding days. There’s so many planners out there who are selling the dream of the perfect frilly wedding and that wasn’t us,” says Kim Evans, designer and creative director. “We wanted to work hard and efficiently for couples and have real relationships with them and be able to give honest feedback and collaborate with them to have amazing, out of the box weddings and celebrations.”
“We both love seeing all the details and plans come together culminating in an emotional celebration. It’s so gratifying to watch all the months of planning and hard work creating a vision come together and stepping back so the couple can really shine,” admits Kim. “At the end of the day, it’s their moment and the spotlight should be on them, not us.”
The Lovely Weddings & Events team…
Kim describes herself and Jess as dedicated, but low stress and relaxed.
“We love having fun with our couples all the while making sure all the details are covered. This is where our experience really comes in handy as we’ve overcome nearly every obstacle out there.

Lovely Weddings & Events combines a straight up style with real world experience. With top notch organizational skills and positive attitudes, they help ensure your wedding planning is as fun as you are. All planners have extensive backgrounds in weddings and events in various areas of hospitality. Kim has over six years in hotel sales and catering along with 12 years as owner and designer for The Creative Bride. Jess has over five years experience in banquet hall and hotel catering.
“We are experts at what it takes to run a successful event and get the most out of your partnerships with your vendors and budget,” says Kim.

The planner is with the couple throughout the day, as well as the wedding rehearsal. An assistant is also there to check the venues, floor plans, welcome guests and assist with any important details.
“All of our packages include one lead planner for the wedding day as well as one assistant. All our planners are WPIC certified and have backgrounds in hospitality,” says Kim. When the planning process begins, either Kim or Jess meets with the bride.
According to Kim, their most popular package is the Month/Day of Coordination.
“We start with the couple a month before so we have the opportunity to catch any omissions/scheduling errors beforehand and help with all the final confirmations with your team of vendors, run your rehearsal and have 2 certified planners for the wedding day,” she says.
Kim believes that couples choose Lovely Weddings because the team works really hard to ensure the wedding is a success.
“We are smart, clever, think on our feet and have a ton of experience. We want to help our couples really personalize their wedding to reflect themselves and their love story.” When it comes to their ideal bride, Kim admits that they love working with couples who are fun, genuine and really want a wedding that is personal and unique.
“They want to shine on their day and have us in the background making sure it all runs smoothly.”
