When you’re planning a wedding, it can feel like your vendor team is an extension of your wedding party. Tour the Hall at Fauntleroy or Melrose Market Studios and you’ll look forward to adding Kimball to your squad. “People person” might be an understatement for the former Miss Seattle and morning news personality who says, “Fostering community and building close connections fuel me more than my coffee does, and is a big part of why I love working in events.” (Bonus: as a barre3 instructor, she’s ready to talk you through some deep breathing exercises if you get stressed.) 

Beyond weddings, Kimball has years of experience planning non-profit events and fundraisers. Her love for Seattle is outweighed only by her love for dogs and her two older brothers.
