Kelley Flora Ruf graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Journalism from the University of Kansas. Always inspired by weddings, she launched an invitation business in 1998 while working in a bridal boutique. Kelley’s passion for helping brides and their families create the day of their dreams progressed naturally to wedding and event planning.
Today Kelley’s imaginative approach, attention to detail, and collaborative philosophy in working with her clients and vendors as one cohesive team have evolved into an incredible career. She works with extraordinary clients and vendors, and cares deeply about ensuring the entire process be as joyful and stress-free as possible. Over the years Kelley has successfully planned more than 200 weddings, which range from a backyard barbecue to a sit-down dinner at the Nelson Art Gallery. Her close relationships with a variety of vendors enable her to collaborate seamlessly with them in preparing for this special event; the bride’s choice of vendors is also welcomed.
“There is nothing better than the Sunday morning after a wedding, knowing that the bride and groom and mom and dad are on cloud nine. Being a part of one of the most joyful days in two people’s lives is much more than a business; it is an opportunity to make that day the very best it can be, and that’s pretty special!”
