Exactly ten years ago to this day, Kelly McLeskey-Dolata bought a blackberry and website domain, and the wine country wedding world has never been the same since. It was coincidental that Kelly started her wedding business on her parents' wedding anniversary, but if you know Kelly, you know there are few things that happen by mere coincidence for her. Kelly was determined to bring her dream to fruition, and worked tirelessly for hours in her garage (move over Steve Jobs), building her team and brand one day at a time. Now, A Savvy Event is known as one of the premiere wedding and event planning companies in Sonoma and Napa Valley, and Kelly has cemented herself as one of the most creatively talented members of the wedding community.
As an homage to Kelly and the wonderful ten years that Savvy has been in business, we thought it would be fun to take a walk down memory lane... wedding memory lane that is. Take a peek at how the design aesthetic of A Savvy Event, and of weddings has evolved over the last ten years. What trends have stayed and what trends have gone by the wayside? We'll let you be the judge!
