Creating Memorable Events

Whether you are planning a corporate event, a memorial for a loved one, or a full wedding celebration, Alder and Blossom can help you with the details. I can help you create the perfect party, from designing a style, coordinating with outside services, and creation of a schedule for the entire event, or I can simply assist you as your event unfolds. My relationship with a wide range of outside vendors ensures you have the exact event you want or dream about. From meetings, to updates about how the planning is developing, to managing the timeline on the day, I will support you the entire way through. With 17+ years of management and event experience, I know how to make your occasion one to remember.

Coffee Dates, Happy Hours and Love Stories

  I take on a limited number of clients because I want to give my couples the individual focus each of them deserves. I love the initial meetings that I have with my clients where I get to hear about you and your unique love story in all its wonderful, and sometimes quirky details. I enjoy hearing about how you met, where you were, fun vacations, individual and blended families, your traditions, and how you fell in love and decided to make a commitment together. I care about the wedding palette, style you might have in mind, and traditions you wish to incorporate, but I definitely like to step back with you and think about your essence as a couple, the experience you are trying to create, and memories you want to achieve. I want to help you plan, consult on, and coordinate an unforgettable party with your loved ones.

"Hi Kimberly, the only feedback I have is YOU ARE AMAZING. Thank you so very much for taking such great care of our guests this week. Additionally, thank you again for your constant flexibility with our guests’ schedule. I am personally grateful for your quick response and easy-going attitude. Looking forward to working with you in the future." 


meet Your Planner

I chose the name Alder and Blossom, because every event, large or small, needs strength in structure and attention to details that make it pop, excite, engage, and draw guests in. From beautiful weddings with elaborate backdrops, centerpieces, and time frames, to celebrations of life with subtle textures and details meant to memorialize and frame a loved one.  

As an event planner and coordinator, I bring a 17+ year professional background in business management and human resources, with my last three years focused on event planning and management, and full service catering. Each event I am part of is managed as an important project, with clear and compassionate communication, adherence to budgets, timelines followed, and focus given to the special needs and details of each client.

I want your employee or client appreciation event to grow your relationships, your wedding to feel beautifully seamless, and your memorial to be as stress free during an already trying time.

I look forward to connecting with you,


When I am not at work:

When I am not event and party planning, you can find me puttering around my garden or kitchen. I love nurturing my plants to fruition, creating beautiful meals with thoughtful ingredients, and feeding my family and friends. There really is nothing I love more than sharing time with my loving partner, wonderful kids (who are now adults, so I really cherish every moment), and my close group of neighbors and friends.
