Melanie Jannicelli Shutt
Founder/President & Creative Director
Kimberly Rose Events is named after Melanie’s mom, Kim, and her sister, Carolyn Rose, who are two of the most important people in her life. Kimberly Rose embodies the idea that we spend special events with the people we care about, and our goal is to capture those moments and feelings with design, originality, and a little magic. We can’t wait to make your event the most fantastic experience you have imagined, and are here to work with you to design something that fits your personality and your vision. We look forward to helping you create new memories!
Melanie is a vibrant girly-girl who loves champagne, apple pie, and anything vanilla. Making people smile is her specialty, along with throwing fabulous parties!
It has always been her dream to make other people’s visions come to life through event planning, and Kimberly Rose Events is her brainchild. Mel’s creativity took flight as a young girl when she created her own imaginary wedding planning business, complete with planning guides full of cakes, flowers, and dresses. As a young entrepreneur, she arranged for her parents to pretend to renew their wedding vows at least a dozen times, and planned each event with thoughtful care.
Melanie’s love for art and design developed over the years and led her to Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas where she studied Art History. After spending five years in the bridal industry as a consultant, and more than seven years assisting with meeting and conference planning for the State of Colorado, she made the leap to starting her own company in 2013.
