There’s been a whole lotta awesome-ness taking place at A Lowcountry Wedding the past few weeks, and with the help of Miss Kelsey, things will just keep getting better! Kelsey is joining the ALW crew this summer as our graphic design intern and we couldn’t be more excited to have her. She’s been tasked with the huge responsibility of designing/creating our brand, new online publication and I’ve got a feeling you’ll be blown away by what she’s got in store for us. So, give Kelsey a big ol’ Lowcountry welcome!
Tell us a little bit about yourself…and by a little, we mean a lot
Where do I begin? [Laughs…] Well, my name is Kelsey and I'm a glass half-full kind of girl. Ever since I could remember I've loved to draw. Once I learned that I could express myself that way, I’ve never stopped. I love romantic comedies, and I live on 90's music. I was born on February 7, 1991 in Riverside, California to military parents Chris and Ena, with one older sister, Erin. During many years, my family and I were given the opportunity to live in the states of Hawaii and California. In 2006, my parents retired and settled down in the beautiful state of Columbia, South Carolina. In high school, I was undecided about what I wanted to do until one day, during my senior of high school, I stumbled upon an ad in the Seventeen Magazine. It read: If you're interested in a creative career, The Art Institute of Charleston is just ahead. Soon after, I applied for the Graphic Design program and was accepted in 2009. That's where I was further introduced to the design industry where I learned the importance of networking and creative problem solving. In 2012, I presented my portfolio as a graduate. I am now living the next chapter of my life and believe the BEST has yet to come!

What’s your favorite thing about weddings
The intimate moment when the bride and groom say "I do." The venue and decor and how wonderfully different and personal they are!
It’s Friday and you just cashed your paycheck….what’s your first splurge?
Nothing starts off a great day at the mall than some good ol' iced coffee! It's the little things in life…

Favorite Item of Clothing
My favorite article of clothing is typically a blouse shirt. They’re versatile, and ladylike. You can dress them up or down.
Favorite Summer beverage
Without a doubt in my mind, it has to be raspberry ice tea.
Current favorite color palette
Anything that has cool blues and tans; I love the natural colors of the beach.
