I believe in the covenant of marriage and do not take it lightly. I find so much meaning in contributing to the most memorable celebrations in my clients' lives.
I love the high stakes, the intense amount of love involved (being surrounded by people they love from every walk of life? Incredible!), and the priority placed on it. 
I love helping to make it everything they’ve ever dreamt of – enabling the family to step back and enjoy the day profusely.
I love connecting with a bride on her specific vision for the day and executing it to fruition.
I love the building of a marriage – representing that with my work, recognizing its importance (it’s the whole REASON for the day!), and celebrating it.

Kelly Dellinger Events

As a complement to her years of planning weddings, fundraisers, and social gatherings, Kelly Dellinger brings to the table nearly a decade of knowledge and experience spanning many facets of the special events industry.  Having previously produced events with a floral designer, a videographer, and a photo booth company; planned and directed events at a popular wedding venue; managed a wedding planning studio; and served as an editor and stylist for a regional wedding publication, Dellinger has carefully developed her experiential repertoire.  Her expansive set of skills equip her to best serve her clients, ensuring that every last detail is accounted for and the entire wedding planning process is completely seamless.

about kelly

A Nashville native, Kelly Dellinger was born, bred, and educated in Tennessee and intends to reside below the Mason-Dixon for life. While she dreams of one day calling Charleston home, she and her college-sweetheart husband live in west Nashville with their two darling daughters, Lillian and Julianna Cate. (And make trips to the Carolina coast as often as humanly possible!) 

Always one to appreciate a good party, Dellinger brings the gentle art of Southern hospitality to her entertaining approach. This, coupled with a focus on what truly matters (the marriage behind the wedding!), makes her heart tick. After all -- what is the ultimate party, if not a wedding?

I specialize in planning weddings -- everything from intimate affairs in pretty garden settings to blowout Southern bashes, complete with hundreds of the happy couple's nearest and dearest.  Let's get together and talk about your perfect day, shall we?
