I have always loved helping plan parties or any event that I could when I was young. I never thought that I would be able to make a career out of it and spend my time doing what I love. Being able to witness a couple's special day, help to make sure the details are perfect, and the event runs smoothly are the reasons why I fell in love with weddings.

Event planning is something that has always been in my life. I have such a passion for the little (and big) details of planning important days in peoples' lives.  I live for the organized chaos of event days and seeing it all come together.  

Creating memorable events that your friends and family will never forget is our passion in life. All Buttoned Up Events primarily focuses on weddings but welcomes any special event. Event Planning is full of intricate details, strict timelines and a wonderful abundance of creativity. For many people it can also be overwhelming, stressful and time consuming. This is where an event planner comes in. As specialists in our field, we help to alleviate the stress by immersing ourselves into the details of your event and by making your vision come to life. The product of our collaborative effort is an extraordinary and breathtaking celebration. 

All Buttoned Up is based out of West Michigan but is always willing to travel.

I was lucky enough in life to find the one thing I was meant to do and to have the means to pursue it. My name is Kelly Kennedy and I am the owner of All Buttoned Up Events. I live in Grand Rapids with my husband, young son, and crazy boxer pup. We believe the planning process should be filled with fun, excitement and darn right enjoyable. This is my goal for every client to feel about their event and the relationship we create. 

I love staying up much too late reading a good book and letting our dog run wild on a walk in the woods. I am able to plan a timeline and design in my head and bring it all to life. There is always a solution to anything that pops up on wedding weekend and I love allowing my couples to have a stress free wedding!

Maybe it was being a flower girl three times or watching 'The Wedding Planner" on repeat. Whatever it was, I've been in love with weddings since before I can remember.  I am Alaina and I am the fourth corner to our awesome team. I am passionate about people and love a good celebration. Weddings happen to be my favorite kind!
