From our first consultation until your stunning sendoff at the end of the night, our goal is to make the planning process fun & easy for you. Our approach allows you to know what comes next without feeling stressed by all those little details.
At Clink! we believe in quality over quantity. We believe that each of our couples & clients deserves dedicated attention tailored specifically to them. Due to this, we only take a limited number of events per month and per year. Additionally, it is our motto that weddings happen every weekend, so what makes this your wedding? Your wedding should tell your love story. The night should amaze your guests and create an atmosphere that leaves them excited to relive the moments & memories that were created.
Our experienced team is here for you every step of the way and it would be our honor to be a part of your story.
Kelley formed Clink! Events in 2015. While Clink! itself is still young, Kelley has been planning and designing events for over 13 years. She has had the pleasure of orchestrating everything from 3000 guests, multi-day golf tournaments to intimate 12 guests weddings. Kelley grew up in the Upstate of South Carolina and loves calling it home. She graduated from Clemson University in 2009 and can always be found cheering on her Tigers! She currently lives in Easley with her husband, Steven, & their lab, Tilley. Kelley's favorite part of event planning is seeing it all come together. She believes there is something magical about watching the details fall into place on event day!
OWNER, PRINCIPAL PLANNER
-I LOVE Chocolate. It's a problem
-My fur baby's name is Tilley. She is a lab mix from the Greenville Humane Society.
-I have a slight obsession with pineapples. To the point that my friends threw me an amazing pineapple themed party! It was so much fun! I love that pineapples are a classy symbol of Southern life and hospitality!
-Steven and I had two weddings in Nov 2018. A destination wedding in Puerto Morelos, Mexico & a local ceremony at Clemson University. Why have one?! ha
My favorite part of the wedding day is the moment right before the bride walks down the aisle. There is all the anticipation and excitement of everything to come. Not just for the wedding day but in life. The doors open, and the groom sees his future wife. In my opinion, the back of the room is the best seat in the house!
Lauren is a true Greenville native. She graduated from Greenville High in 2000 and then continued her studies at Clemson University, graduating in 2004. After college, Lauren moved to Charleston, SC, where she found her true passion for events while learning from some of the best wedding and event planners in the industry. She brought her skills and love of planning back to Greenville where she married her husband, David. They now have two beautiful baby girls, Elizabeth and Abigail. With over 15 years experience as a planner, Lauren's great joy comes from the satisfaction of creating flawless and memorable events for her clients!
-I read magazines from back to front - Always
- I have a secret (not so secret now) obsession with teen rom-coms - The Kissing Booth, hello!
-My summers growing up were spent picking yummy fruits and veggies on my family's farm in Beaufort SC. My grandfather would let me keep the money from each one I sold!
-I am blessed with the ability to sleep anywhere. Anytime. I call this a win.
My favorite moment: For an event in general - the planning and brainstorming process has always been my favorite. Tapping in to the creative side, and putting all the ideas on paper - then eliminating the ones that just don't fit, and finally narrowing down my vision - that's the best!
Ashley & her husband, Stephen, live in Greenville with their adorable golden doodle, Arvo. Ashley’s journey with Clink! Events started as a bride when her and Stephen were married in January 2019. Finding a love for events, she started working at local venues and thankfully joined the Clink! Team in 2019. Ashley has a deep love for Clemson, traveling and spending time with her close knit family.
-I have a younger sister that looks exactly like me (everyone swears we are twins) but we are actually 14 months apart.
-We named our pup after one of our favorite coffee spots on our honeymoon in Hawaii.
-Hands down favorite dessert - chipwiches!
My Favorite Moment: The giddy moment when the bride and groom see each other for the first time and it sets in that the day they’ve dreamed about is actually happening!
After interning with Clink! for two years in college, Kennedy graduated from Clemson University in 2019 and followed her dream of moving to Colorado. There, she worked on a guest ranch as a wrangler and with the Children’s Program. Kennedy moved back to South Carolina recently to start her career path in marketing and events in the Greenville area. She is excited to be apart of the Clink! Team again and assist on the weddings to come. When she is not working she enjoys hiking with her dog, Benelli, and riding horses.
- - I have been cage diving with sharks in the Bahamas
- I have to have “a little something sweet” after each meal… without fail
- My dream job, if money were not object, would be to own an equine therapy center for individuals with depression. I would love to help change the lives of those struggling by using my favorite animal as a healing aid and to see the progress each day from both patient and horse.
- I grew up hunting with my father and make it my goal to go with him as much as I can
My Favorite Moment: My favorite moment of a wedding is seeing the groom go from having a great time with all of his groomsmen to the moment before he takes his place at the end of the isle, seeing everything come together in his mind and witnessing the pure joy and excitement of the journey he is about to embark on. People often think of the wedding day as being the brides day, but it is also the day the groom gets his dream as well.
