Brass Tacks Events endeavors to be the premiere event production company in Central Texas and beyond. Weddings, corporate events, social events, we do it all. BELIEVE IN PERFECTION! www.BrassTacksEvents.com

Our Company
Brass Tacks Events was founded by Gia Rhodes and Kevin Molesworth, both of whom came to Central Texas by way of New York City where they worked in the events industry for more than 20 years combined. We take great care to ensure that your event is expertly planned, flawlessly executed and uniquely yours.


Our Philosophy
Believe in Perfection. Our uncompromising desire to bring your vision to life will not allow for anything less than a truly exquisite event. If you can dream it, we can make it happen.


Our People
Gia Rhodes began her career in New York City and quickly found herself working in the heart of Times Square at Madame Tussauds. As Show Producer for one of the busiest attractions in the entire city, Gia was responsible for all the interactive entertainment which was enjoyed by more than 2 million visitors each year. Gia is proud to have managed numerous events at Madame Tussauds featuring some of the biggest names in entertainment including Beyonce, Hugh Jackman, Salma Hayek and Colin Farrell. Gia went on to work as a consultant for some of the top event production and design firms in New York when she caught the attention of Liz Claiborne. Gia was hired by the iconic brand to produce fashion shows nationwide alongside Tim Gunn. Gia attended Texas Christian University where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Theatre.

Kevin Molesworth accepted a position right out of college working for Robert De Niro's acclaimed Tribeca Productions where he quickly learned the simple rule that, whatever the assignment, you must get it right the first time. Building on that foundation, Kevin went on to become one of the most sought after event designers in New York as well as an award-winning theatrical director and producer. Kevin considers himself fortunate to have had the great privilege to produce events for Walt Disney Productions, Target, Major League Soccer and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to name a few. Kevin graduated magna cum laude from the State University of New York at Oswego and holds Bachelors' degrees in Theatre, English and Education.

I could not have asked for a more perfect wedding day and I have Brass Tacks Events to thank!! My husband and I had a very limited budget compared to most weddings and hiring Brass Tacks was worth every single penny!

Everyone there genuinely loves what they do and cares about you as a person, not just a customer--"Believe in Perfection" isn't just a slogan to them, they live it! Their top priority was making sure they understood my vision for the wedding and made it happen. (Kevin asked the right questions to get information since I didn't have a theme for the wedding.) Because of our small budget, they suggested what to focus on, what NOT to skip, and how to spend less on certain aspects while still putting on a fun, classy wedding that we got SO many compliments on!

We got the day-of package and Kevin and Lindsey were happy to look over contracts and talk to vendors to make sure everything was perfect. This alone saved us money and kept us from a potentially disastrous catering situation!

Lindsey was a dream to work with; I'm still getting comments from family members and the wedding party on how amazing she was! Kevin is the best too--he surprised me by showing up and videoing the entire wedding for us. (For real, how amazing is that?!)

Lindsey's professionalism, communication skills, attention to detail, and follow up with vendors put me at ease and gave me confidence that things were under control. She arrived early, directed all vendors competently and efficiently, answered questions for guests, family, and members of the wedding party, and checked in on me periodically to make sure everything was great--all with a level head and a smile on her face!

Everyone at Brass Tacks truly went above and beyond what was expected and I 100% recommend using them as your event coordinators! I cannot imagine anything they could have done better! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to be present for and enjoy every moment of my wedding day!!

Lindsey provided us with excellent service throughout the entire process. She helped us to establish (and stick to) a budget and timeline that allowed us to have the wedding we wanted. She also recommended excellent vendors that fit our vision. Communication was always easy and available when we needed it. Our wedding day was perfect and I couldn't have asked for a better team to get us there. I highly recommend BrassTacks!!!!!
Thank you Lindsey for all your hard work!!!

My now mother-in-law gave me the greatest gift of all when she hired our wedding planner on our behalf. From the moment I got engaged, I was excited to work on my wedding plans, but I knew that other than a pinterest page and some mental images, I really had no idea what I was doing and how I would get from point A to B. Also, because I don't live in Austin, I didn't know where to begin when hiring local vendors. Kevin seemed to have connections for everything under the sun and all of the vendors we used were absolutely amazing. When we decided late in the game to change from a DJ to a band, he found an awesome 7-piece party band that was a huge hit with all of our guests. I also feel like Kevin really "got" me. I admit that I wasn't always great at articulating my vision, but he seemed to ask all the right questions and in the end everything was perfect. Exactly what I wanted.

Writing a 5-star review is not something I take lightly. I travel quite a bit with my work and I have been fortunate enough to stay at some of the finest hotels and dine at the best known restaurants anywhere in the world. I don't believe in hype, I don't buy-in to something because it's trendy, I simply believe that the finest things should exceed even your greatest expectations. When seeking a professional wedding planner and designer, my philosophy was the same. I was by no means a bridezilla, but much like every bride, I wanted everything to be perfect. That said, it was shocking, to say the least, when I had a meeting with the first wedding planner in Austin and she told me within our first 5 minutes of conversing, "Something always goes wrong on your wedding day so just get over it now and move on." I couldn't believe my ears! I immediately ended the consultation, but could not fight the urge to say in response, "I'm sorry you feel that way. My father is a heart surgeon and I couldn't imagine him ever saying that to a patient before heading into the operating room." My second experience with another planner was not much better. It was not until I met Kevin with Brass Tacks Events that my hope for a perfect wedding day was renewed. Contrary to my previous meetings with other planners, I knew that I was going to hire him within the first five minutes of our consultation. His energy was unbelievable and his excitement and enthusiasm for my ideas was so refreshing. Even when I shared some of my "crazier" ideas, he never said "No, we can't do that." or "Well, that's really hard to pull off." Instead, he seemed to jump at the challenge of something that was different from the norm. The entire planning process was smooth and enjoyable and the wedding day was flawless.

Lindsey Hollingsworth was able to balance the perfection of the theoretical with the beauty of an imperfect wedding reality. Lindsey functions in the "now" and enables her clients to enjoy the "moment." Clients have the need to experience a tremendous amount of life and love in a single day. Lindsey provides the expertise and the calm leadership that facilitates the satisfaction of these needs.

Lindsey Hollingsworth cooperatively creates a plan and adapts that plan as needs arise and as circumstances dictate. She was responsive, yet firm when necessary. Ms. Hollingsworth exuded confidence and competence. She gave the impression that not only is she good at what she does, she loves and enjoys it.

Lindsey Hollingsworth's knowledge and experience seem vast, but perhaps her intuitive and instinctual talents are more important. She seemed to know and understand our needs and our fears. We found her to have a positive influence on the entire wedding party. We cannot truly express our appreciation regarding what she did for our daughter's wedding.

In our opinion, Lindsey Hollingsworth is not only talented, but gifted. Her talents and gifts could be valuable in many of fields of endeavor.

One final thought: Lindsey chose her assistants well. They were very considerate and extremely competent.

Grateful clients,

Pat and Ron Lasseter

We cannot say enough good things about Brass Tacks or Lindsey Hollingsworth, our fabulous day-of coordinator who helped make our wedding such a success!

We decided late in the game to bring on wedding coordination help, and even with very little time to prepare, Lindsey jumped in with both feet. She made a very detailed schedule for our day, coordinating with all of our vendors at two separate venues, so that we didn't have to worry about a thing. Because of this level of planning and expertise, our day went off without a hitch. Without. One. Hitch. It was incredible. Lindsey and her team really took care of us.

Lindsey is a consummate professional. She knows her stuff, folks. If you are planning a wedding and need some extra support, she's the one for you. Everyone with Brass Tacks was a joy to work with: friendly, helpful and they are truly invested in your "big day". I would recommend their work to anyone planning an event. I already have!

I hired Kevin of Brass Tacks Events to assist in planning every aspect of my wedding. My mother and I had some ideas of things that we wanted, but realistically, we acknowledged soon after I got engaged that we really had no clue what we were doing. From the beginning, I was really impressed with the way that Kevin could take even my most abstract and incomplete ideas for the wedding and translate them into reality. I admit that I sometimes have a hard time explaining myself and having a planner that would listen to my ramblings and take extra time to work through each element meant a lot to me. I genuinely felt like he had a vested interest in the overall look and success of my wedding. On the day of the wedding I was really pleased to see how Kevin and his team interacted with my guests. They truly made everyone feel like they were a VIP. He really charmed my grandmother by taking great care of her the entire evening. I cannot thank him enough for that as she is so important to me. After we got back from our honeymoon, we were flooded with calls and emails from guests saying that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. Everything was absolutely perfect and I know that is all because of Brass Tacks Events.

We hired Brass Tacks based on a rave review from my best friend's sister who worked with them on her wedding last year. From the first day of planning to the big day of the wedding, the service was top-notch. Kevin is a consummate professional and handles every detail with the utmost care. You can tell that he recognizes the great significance of the amount of money we were spending and kept reminding us that he wanted every dollar we spent to have "impact". Not a penny was spent frivolously and a lot of that has to do with the great team of vendors that Kevin put together for us. You will not find a better planner than Kevin of Brass Tacks.

After getting engaged, I immediately put the task of getting a planner at the top of my list. I wanted this to be the very first thing I did. I've heard from several people that many brides become very "Alpha" when it comes to their weddings. Well, that's just not me. I'm happy to hand over everything...to the right person, of course. I met with five planners and was amazed that four of them told me right out of the gate that my vision was impossible and that my ideas were too difficult to pull off. Everyone except Kevin, that is. I knew within moments of meeting him that he was going to be my guy. Not only did he believe that my vision could be executed, but he was almost as excited at I was. I had one idea that, I admit, was rather quirky, and I can still remember the huge smile that came across his face when I explained it. He clapped his hands and said, "Yes! I love it!", and began drawing up a rough sketch immediately. This is going to sound so dorky, but in that moment he made me feel like a princess and he was this magical wizard granting my every wish. From that day forward, everything was smooth sailing. The planning process was actually fun instead being stressful. Having a planner like Kevin that comes from a place of "Yes", a truly positive space, is priceless. Everything was perfect! Thanks so much to Kevin and his team of angels with Brass Tacks Events.

I am definitely not one of those brides that started dreaming of her wedding day as a little girl. I guess you could say that I'm a bit unconventional and I wanted to have an unconventional wedding. When I met Kevin I can remember like it was yesterday exactly what he said to me when I explained my ideas. He smiled and said, "The rules are there are no rules. It's your day and we can do whatever you want." That sentiment was not what I was hearing from family and close friends when I described my vision, so it was immediately reassuring to know that I finally had someone in my corner. From the very beginning I figured this would be the most expensive dinner party I ever throw in my life, so I wanted it to be as fun and quirky as my new husband and I are known to be. Kevin connected us with the perfect DJ and had some really great ideas for our centerpieces and other decorations. He also found the perfect photographer for us too. Not only is she very talented, she was the type of person that we enjoyed being around and was someone that instantly fit in with all our crazy friends. I am so grateful for having Kevin by my side every step of the way and I would encourage every couple to hire Brass Tacks. "Worth every penny!" ;-)
