Last month, we had the pleasure of working with Megan Richardson who recently launched her new event planning business, Kinship Events Co. Megan wanted her brand session to look like a wedding reception, so we spent the day at our favorite studio, surrounded by gorgeous flowers and all the makings of a well-planned event. And to no one’s surprise, Megan took a completely empty space and transformed it into a beautiful mini reception, including a cake cutting table and signature cocktail service. Hear more from Megan and her heart for creating meaningful connections through Kinship Events Co. in this month’s Harmonie House Client Spotlight.

Tell us more about you, Megan!

I’m an event planner with 10 years of experience in corporate event planning, hotel event management and wedding planning. After spending time in the industry, I decided to create Kinship Events Co. because I wanted to foster meaningful connections between family and friends through events. My clients get a white glove experience from me and I tailor each event to my clients’ specific goals. Together, we’re able to create an event that beautifully reflects their personality.

When I’m not providing design proposals, attending site visits or on calls, you can find me spending time with my husband, exercising, or going on walks with our two pups.

What inspired you to create Kinship Events Co.?

I feel that the event industry is lacking in personal touch and is often just trying to achieve an aesthetic look simply for posting to social media. I want to inspire my clients to hold events that reflect them, their style, and their personality. Rather than creating a look just for posting on socials, I want my clients to enjoy and connect with their guests. Taking care of the details, and surrounding my clients with a style that authentically represents them ensures they can enjoy their event in the most stress free environment.

What’s been helpful to you as a small business owner?

The best business advice I’ve ever been given is to just go for it! There is never going to be a perfect circumstance to begin. I realized I needed to just start the work to get my business up and running, rather than waiting for all of the stars to perfectly align. Networking has also been a vital component in starting my business. Creating and maintaining relationships with great vendors not only helps my business, but also ensures each and every event will be a success!

Megan, it was an absolute pleasure to help you get Kinship Events Co. launched last month! You created a beautiful set up for your brand session that actually felt like we were at a real wedding. All that was missing was the happy couple and an officiant! Congratulations, Megan – we wish you much success!
