My Name is Karen Kelly and I was born and raised on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Communications with a concentration in special events coordination (University of North Carolina at Wilmington, 1999).

I have enjoyed serving as event coordinator for numerous community service functions.

• As an intern in college, I was privileged to work with renowned New Hanover Regional Medical Center where I helped in the coordination of events such as the Cancer Survivors Day and the Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit Babies Day Reunion.

• Participating with the North Carolina Azalea Festival directors gave me the fabulous opportunity to assist in the coordination of events in conjunction with the Azalea Festival Princess Scholarship Program and the Azalea Festival Parade.

• While in charge of membership and advertising sales for Outer Banks Chamber of Commerce, I assisted in the coordination of the monthly Business After Hours and the Annual Mariners Membership Drive, which allowed me to make many important contacts that are crucial now in my work here at Coastal Events Coordinators.

• Working in membership and advertising sales, and also volunteering my time to the Outer Banks Wedding Association has given me that extra opportunity to get to know many of the vendors who provide services to those planning an Outer Banks Wedding.

My work in community service as well as my background in hospitality and sales makes it a pleasure to serve visitors and locals alike as an Events Coordinator. As a member of the Outer Banks Wedding Association and the Outer Banks Chamber of Commerce, I have helped dozens of couples live out their dream of an Outer Banks wedding. My attention to detail, combined with the natural beauty of the Outer Banks, provide couples with a beautiful AND stress-free wedding day.

My specialized services also include planning family reunions, family vacations, bridal showers, and corporate retreats as well as simple holiday parties. Let me ease your stress and do the planning for you. I love the Outer Banks and I love what I do. Sit back and enjoy the party!

Please accept this invitation to review the information and services that Coastal Events Coordinators provide. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. I look forward to working with you!


Thank you for your time and consideration,

Coastal Events is wonderful! We couldn't ask for a better planner. Planning a destination wedding has the potential to be stressful, but Karen helped us so much and took great care of everything! She helped me keep up to date with all the vendors, created a realistic timeline, and had a primary and secondary plan for every aspect. Karen was familiar with all the OBX vendors and all of them turned out to be great! We love her and would highly recommend her for any event!

We were a little nervous bringing a large group to the beach for our wedding, since we live 7 hours away! The assistance and vendor referrals Karen provided were invaluable. She organized everything and kept track of all the little details! We honestly could not have done it as easily without her. Her fee is so minimal compared to the outstanding service she provides!

Karen truly was a blessing and probably the best money we spent on our wedding! Since we were planning our wedding from Virginia we would not have been able to do it without her! She was always available by email for the year it took us to plan with very quick responses! We are so pleased with all of our vendors and she recommended them to us! She was very helpful meeting us and setting up appointments for the one weekend we were able to come in prior to our wedding to plan, and she was very helpful and made herself available to us the whole week we were at the beach for the wedding. Couldn't have done it without her!

Karen did a wonderful job. There was no doubt she wasn't going to have everything in place and done for the day of. We worked together for a little over a year and I felt comfortable in her hands. I would recommend her to anyone having a wedding in OBX! The vendors we chose were hands down the greatest! Karen's professional relationship with these vendors helped a great deal in getting ideas down and finalized. We thank Coastal Events immensely for their job well done!

Karen and Coastal Events not only provided us with professionalism from the beginning to the end, but also made us feel like family. We knew from the moment we spoke with Karen that our dreams would be made possible. The attention to detail and in-depth knowledge of all that was necessary for a successful and enjoyable wedding was shared with us, and put our minds at ease knowing we were in great hands. We will never forget our wedding day and how smoothly it flowed, allowing us to embrace every moment! Thank you for everything Karen!

Karen Kelly has a lot of experience wedding planning. She provides tips on setting a time line, budgeting, and the best quality vendors to use. She is very personable and certainly puts you at east on your big day. I recommend her to anyone wanting to experience a dream beach wedding on the Outerbanks setting.
