Forever an optimist; always looking for the best in a stressful moment. Focused and passionate about life's opportunities. A baker since age 6, a wedding planner by choice.
Living in South Carolina has opened many opportunities that I thought weren't possible. Growing up, I was always the 'baker' in the family planning Thanksgiving and our yearly Christmas Cookie bake but never thought past the family and friends for event planning. Being miles away from my Michigan family has given me time to reflect on past experiences and strengths and seek out what truly motivates me. I was offered a career position within a private, gated community to be the Clubhouse Coordinator for non-member events and that experience renewed my focus and allowed me to expand my knowledge, experience and dedication. In December, 2010, I launched Lisa Kenward Events with a focus on wedding celebrations.
My event planning experience has grown over the years but my focus remains. And, I have learned that I cannot do it all myself. My patient and supportive husband keeps me sane through the process of developing sophisticated, creative and memorable events. Knowing that every event is a group effort, I work with local professionals and business owners who bring their knowledge and services to the event making each celebration unique and fun.
It’s been many years since my first event planned and I am approaching a total of 100 events coordinated. All the lessons learned and experiences embraced along the way makes me realize how very fortunate I am to have found a profession that bring me great joy and fuels my passion.
