In high school I planned a school-wide dance and major citywide fashion show with local media outlets and department stores just to have an excuse to go on a date bust mostly start my career before college. There is no exact moment in time when I "decided" upon event design as a career or when I started creating events. This is what I have loved to do since I can remember and I count myself extremely fortunate that I can dream up amazing events and bring them to fruition every day.I am a keen observer of life and I have found that almost all of my design inspiration is generated from my everyday experiences shopping, dining, reading and exploring. Since the inception of my company in 2006, I have taken dozens of courses to help develop my skills across multiple event-related disciplines including floral design, event management, food and wine pairing and spatial planning, but much of what I know has been learned on the job as I pushed myself to conceptualize innovative ways to execute my clients' wishes. I have no greater source of inspiration, though, than my wonderful triplet 4 year olds (my children) in my life. No matter if I am tweaking lighting in a ballroom in Atlanta or arranging furniture in a tent in LA, they are cheering me on and encouraging my creative juices to flow.Events have been a source of extraordinary joy in my life and I hope to bring my enthusiasm and passion for the work that I love to every event that comes my way, including yours.
Ms. Kimmy D.
I am often asked how I got started in the event business, and the truth can be told in one of two ways: After attending DePaul University studing Business with a concentration in Marketing and Communications, I began working in public relations for the fashion and entertainment industries in Chicago, so I gained professional event experience through that field and then meandered my way, from 2003 - 2004, from PR events to weddings and social events. It would be misleading, however, for me to attribute my career entirely to my short stint in PR.
For each celebration, Kimberly creates a custom event style using elements of color, texture, light and space to establish a strong design that extends far beyond the tabletop. To communicate her vision, Kimberly and her team use graphic and hand illustrations, material samples, written narratives and reference images, allowing each client complete connectivity with her event. Collaboration is essential to the full evolution of every design, so the creative process is never complete without your feedback.
After planning hundreds of celebrations, Kimberly knows that design goes far beyond aesthetics. A beautiful event is one that is both visually stunning and an exceptional experience. As a result, Kimberly takes pride in her comprehensive approach to design, which encompasses the way that you and your guests will enjoy and interact with the event environment. Kimberly and her team consider all aspects of an event when building a design, creating an unparalleled connection between style and substance.
Weddings by Image infuses each celebration with contemporary style integrating floral and non-floral design elements and compelling color palettes. Owner and creative director Kimberly Davis finds inspiration from design outside the world of special events and seamlessly transforms the unique concepts and combinations into approachable and timeless event décor. Kimberly's trademark use of color is her signature stamp on every party she styles, giving even simple palettes extraordinary life. With an emphasis on complete room décor, Kimberly delivers a "wow factor" that will impress your guests without overwhelming them, so that your décor is both admired and enjoyed.
The essence of contemporary style is not the common association with "modern" design, but instead all that relates to the present time – what is happening now. Weddings by Image is committed to keeping up with the times and the trends so that your event is a reflection of the moment in which it occurs. Contemporary style means not subscribing to the should's and the must's of the past, but being open to the diverse possibilities of today.
