Meet the Team

Kelsey – Owner & Lead Planner

Kelsey is our business minded visionary with a passion for weddings, love and pretty white dresses. She is a Portland State Business School graduate, a San Diego native and a wife and mother. When she isn’t busy planning weddings, she can be found working in the orchard or garden surrounded by chickens at Knutson Family Farm.

A Note from Kelsey: I started Fairytales with the hope and idea that every couple deserves to have a stress free wedding day! I have loved weddings since I was a little girl. I collected BRIDE magazines throughout high school and I even wrote a paper about being an event planner in middle school. I love order and organization which I use to create stress free events. I’m the kind of person that organizes my clothes by color and my spices alphabetically. I love lists and get immense satisfaction from checking things off of that list. I never want you to feel like you’re trapped in the box of tradition and love offering unique options and ideas. I look forward to working with you and can’t wait to hear about your dream event!


Rania – Lead Coordinator

Rania is a coordinator extraordinaire. She loves planning and coordinating events of all kinds, but especially loves outdoor and unique weddings. Her own wedding in 2018 was a music festival theme, complete with camping, live bands and paper wristbands. In her free time, Rania loves scaling mountains and hiking with her husband and adorable dog, Calvin!


Kristina – Lead Coordinator

Kristina another of our super talented coordinators. She had her start in running corporate events, but loves being a part of the wedding industry as well. She has three precious daughters and can be found exploring all that Portland has to offer with them.
