If you are planning an event and want it to be a success, choosing to spend some of your budget on an event planner will ensure you save time, money, and stress in the long run. Remember, amazing, rave-worthy events don’t just happen! Putting one together takes skill, experience, and resources.
We all know how stressful planning an event can be. Having little or no idea about what to expect, trying your best to figure out how to organize the event properly (from production timelines for the event to booking a venue in time). Realizing the number of things you’re leaving out while trying to be everywhere at the same time. Then, that horrifying moment when you realize you’ve exceeded your budget limit.
The good news is, planning that event doesn’t have to be so stressful. Not when there are Black-Owned Event Planning Companies here in Westchester, who enjoy helping with important details and make that great idea you have about the event come to reality.

Kelly Denise Events
If you want a smashing party, call Kelly Denise Events
By Charles Stern
Kelly Denise Events is an event planning & design company based in Mount Vernon. The company specializes in weddings and social events, and offers a wide array of services. Weddings, baby showers, retirement parties, even dinner parties and corporate events are all within the scope of this dynamic company.
Kelly Denise Gardner, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of KDE, grew up in Chesapeake, Virginia and started coordinating hair shows with Nesta Felix while she was in college. That led to fashion shows, homecomings and later, about three years ago, Ms. Gardner opened her own company to help people bring their event visions into reality.
Kelly has been in the event planning business for over 10 years. She brings to your event an extensive network of vendors, a depth of sponsors and a background in planning everything from baby showers to lavish weddings and large conferences. Event planning is her passion, and this shows in her attention to details and cares for your vision and budget.
She says the key is having a plan. “I become a part of their planning process.” says Gardner, “We talk about what they are trying to accomplish, we talk about having a budget and then we figure out how to make it happen. I’m there for the client at every step, guiding and making their event idea into a success.”
One of those recent clients was the daughter of Bishop W. Darin Moore, President of the AME Zion Church Board of Bishops. She called on Kelly Denise Events to plan her wedding with 250 guests. This was a fairly elaborate affair, involving location scouting, sketching designs for decor items, catering, seating arrangements, travel arrangements and extensive logistics. Gardner’s team delivered it all, even greeting out of town guests at the airport to absolutely guarantee a smooth transition to overnight accommodations.
Not every event is a blockbuster. Gardner will take small events and make them fabulous too. “The glamour is fine, but you really don’t need ALL of it to have a great wedding or any other kind of event,” says Gardner. “I would rather have clients leave with some money left in their pocket.” Whether the budget is modest, or bold, Kelly Denise Events will be creative, take away your stress, and make your event into a blast.
