I am delighted to introduce myself as the owner & planner extraordinaire of K Laine + Co. With a passion for creating unforgettable & magical experiences, I am dedicated to helping couples turn their dream weddings into a reality. I like to refer to myself as an event architect, a sounding board, a design guru, a dream translator & your bespoke event bestie. Over the past decade, I have turned my detail-oriented & creative superpowers into a fun & fulfilling career in the events industry producing highly stylized & unforgettable parties.

My journey in the wedding industry has equipped me with a deep understanding of the intricate elements involved in planning events. From selecting the ideal venue to curating breathtaking décor, I take pride in my ability to transform your vision into a seamless & unforgettable celebration.

My desire & excitement to plan refined experiences began at a very early age; I’ve always enjoyed planning, hosting, & facilitating events with the desire to cultivate special experiences for others. I am the type who organizes dinner parties, Sunday brunches, themed dinner parties, games nights & backyard bashes for no reason at all, other than fulfilling the desire to plan, create and build community. I look for any excuse to deck out a dinner table, harvest a feast, build an epic cheese board, string up some lights, design place cards, bust out some cutesy napkins, chargers, vases & candles, showcase my stoneware, arrange flowers & achieve design dreams.

 

Weddings, in particular, strike a chord with me; the personal connections made with a bride & groom and their families on the day they have been dreaming of all their lives is priceless. Watching firsthand, the most anticipated day of someone’s life bloom right before your eyes is incredible, especially knowing I played an integral role. Being a part of people’s love stories & watching them unfold is magical.

I carefully curate each & every design to represent my client’s vision, story & style. I know what commitment, vision & hard work look like. What sets me apart is my unwavering dedication to providing exceptional service & creating a personalized experience for each couple. I believe in building strong relationships with my clients, taking the time to truly understand their preferences, personalities & dreams for their event. This allows me to curate an event that is not only visually stunning, but also deeply meaningful & reflective of their unique love story.

I am truly honored to be a part of your wedding and/or event planning journey. Let's embark on this incredible adventure together and create an experience that exceeds your expectations and leaves you with cherished memories that will last a lifetime.

KIM'S FAVORITE THINGS

I am an Austinite, but my happy place is far west  Texas. Some of my friends know me as a Boston  Terrier Mama. Professionally, I’m known for being a hyper organized spreadsheet lover that lives for design. As a total scorpio, my free time is spent wearing hats while gardening. With everything in my day to day, being a multi tasker also means I am a to do list queen. Similarly to my native lands of the Texas Hill Country, I am a foodie who enjoys arts & crafts. In contrast to my roots, though, I have a passion for fashion and am a wine and cheese fanatic.
