It was not in Kelsey’s wildest dreams that she would become an Event Planner. However, while working at Oro Valley Country Club, and simultaneously studying at University of Arizona, she received a phone call that suddenly changed her career path. Kelsey was recruited for a job as the Principal Event Planner for Spring Lake Country Club in West Michigan. Without looking back, she took a leap of faith and moved to start her new career, determined to prove her mentor right. She spent two wonderful and extremely busy years there, learning the ins and outs of the business, all the while envisioning the company she would someday create.
Near the end of 2011, Kelsey moved back to Portland, Oregon, where she was born and raised, to start Vanity Affair Events, which launched in 2013. Kelsey brings passion, an eye for detail and design and her love of event coordinating to each event. Event planning is her greatest enthusiasm: the people, the details, the design and the incredible clients who ask her to be a part of their most cherished and intimate day. Kelsey works directly with every client, to manage even the smallest of details. Her style is distinct, honest and playful, making sure that through the process she has captured her clients thoughts, ideas and concepts.
Vanity Affair Events is a full service event planning company, serving clients across the nation and specializing in destination events. Allow Kelsey and her team to create what will soon be your most cherished and intimate event.

Its difficult to know where to even start when talking about Kelsey and the astounding job that she did coordinating our wedding. She went above and beyond in every single way possible. While she was an upmost professional, she was still incredibly personable, down to earth and gave her whole heart. She handled everything so seamlessly- and was a dream to work with. Having Kelsey coordinate our wedding was the ABSOLUTE best decision we made- and she is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.
Love you Kels, Q + C
What a blessing you are! As a girl who never planned her wedding (or really thought about the hosting details), you were the logical breath of fresh air we needed. Not only did you make our wedding day beautiful, we thoroughly enjoyed our chats and getting to know you through the process. I've received so many compliments on the wedding that all go to you- and also how seamlessly you guided our guests and vendors. Thank you so much for your honest guidance and wonderful ideas, it was the day we wanted all along.
You are a rock star. You made our lives easier, our wedding seamless, and put my mind at ease in the days and weeks leading up to our wedding. Plus, you know cool spots in Portland and spread rumors/believe I cook well. So happy to to have met you and look forward to many catch ups and hang outs in the years to come!
Wow. That is really all we can say when our friends and family continue to compliment what an amazing weekend in Portland it was and we could not agree more and it is because of you. THANK YOU for being our guide, our reality check and the honest opinions we needed throughout the planning process. Planning a wedding from so far away had us uneasy when we committed to Portland, but you took every worry out of us and we would relive that day over and over if we could. See you on our next visit to the Northwest!
Love, A + J
We cannot thank you enough for everything. What a surprise you were to us and we are so glad we were referred to you, because our wedding day would never have been the same without you. Our families are still talking about how wonderful you were and how seamless you made our day. You attention to detail, friendly conversations and our meetings gave us more reassurance than you know! Thank you again for the best day (and experience!) EVER.

Back from our honeymoon and we are still in awe of our wedding day. Thank you SO much for everything you did from our first meeting to our last. We could not have done it without you and we are still receiving compliments about how our wedding was one of the most fun people had ever been to. You are the best and we are so happy we had you on our team. Looking forward to catching up over cocktails when your season slows down. We are going to miss you and your honesty that kept us on track!
