Meet Our Team

Kala – Owner/Event Planner

I started this venture back in 2010 and can’t imagine doing anything else. My first job back in high school was working in a bridal shop in upstate South Carolina and that was the beginning of my draw to weddings. When I moved to Charleston I started working for an event planner and eventually found that my true passion was working with couples to create their perfect day. I throw a great party- but that isn’t everything- I honestly want to get to know my clients on a personal level and am honored to have been a part of so many amazing weddings. In my free time I love spending time with my son, Greyson, who was born in 2019 and my husband Thomas. My favorite part of the wedding day is definitely that moment right before the couple walks down the aisle and you feel the excitement and tension. I still cry during the first dances and I hope I never stop feeling that emotion.

Kara – Event Planner

Kara joined the MOD Events team in 2012 and has been working in the hospitality industry since 2009. She is a born and raised North Carolinian and is the backbone of our business. Her attention to detail immediately made her an invaluable part of our team. She comes from a catering/events background, then worked for a specialty linen company for years, so she truly knows the ins and outs of the event business. She loves spending time with her family and spoiling her two fur babies- Trevor and Asher in her free time. Her favorite part of the wedding day is getting to see the couples reaction when they walk into the reception for the first time!

Hannah – Event Planner

Hannah grew up in Massachusetts and has a background in hospitality management. After graduating from the Art Institute with a degree in Interior Design, she moved to New Orleans and spent six years immersed in the culture and soul of the city with an event design and production company, Mardi Gras Productions Inc. She specialized in event planning and design consultation along with coordination, and produced events for Mardi Gras krewes, brides, and celebrities. When she moved back to Charleston to be closer to family, she joined our team and has become an essential part of MOD Events. Her organization and attention to detail make her the perfect planner for any event. In her free time she loves having brunch with her friends and spending time with her husband Keith, and their cat, Kevin. Hannah’s favorite part of the wedding day is all the smiles and compliments at the end of the night from a couple’s guests after bringing their vision to life.
