Lead Planner

Hello there! I’m Kelsey Knutson and I’m here to help you plan your fairy tale event. I am the owner and Lead Planner at Fairytales by Kelsey. I have loved weddings and events ever since I was a little girl and my passion for pretty white dresses, Cinderella moments and love has not faded. I am a Portland State Business School graduate and a happy wife and mother. If I’m not planning weddings, you can find me outside working in the garden at Knutson Family Farm.  

Why do I make a good event planner? Well let’s just say that I’m the girl who organizes her closet by color and her spices alphabetically. I write a to-do list for everything and get a thrill from checking off each box. I pay close attention to the details and am great with creative solutions. I am dedicated and love working with people.

I work out of my home office in Columbia County, OR and love working with local brides. I also travel all over the greater Portland area including Multnomah County, Washington County, Clackamas County, Tillamook County and Clark County. I drive over 200 miles every week, so if you are within range I will be happy to work with you.

Sound interesting? Head over to the contact page and set up an interview with me! This is a complimentary meeting just for you, to see if we are the perfect fit.
