Meet Lauren Kelley Evans

Hello! I'm Lauren, the owner of Kelley Event + Design, a custom event furnishings business. My background includes almost a decade at The Wall Street Journal and The Atlantic magazine and the last few years dedicated to building Kelley Event + Design in the Charlotte market. During my time in Manhattan and Washington, DC, I worked closely with senior executives and marketing teams to provide a high level of service and appreciate the nuances of delivering on my promises. My keen design eye paired with my corporate background makes for a professionalized, yet creative experience for my clients. I'm a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and reside in Plaza Midwood with my husband, son and goldendoodle. Looking forward to hearing from you and collaborating on your next event!


Bespoke Event Design

Our customers work with brides and other clients who know exactly what they want and are not willing to compromise on quality. We produce handcrafted, custom event furniture and décor that will satisfy even the most selective bride.

Worry-Free Experience

Once we’ve acquired and crafted the pieces we need for your event, our white-glove delivery team will transport them to the event site and set them up. Once the night is over, we pack them up and take them away—we handle it all so you don’t have to.
