Melanie Jannicelli Shutt
Founder/President & Creative Director
Melanie is a Colorado native and 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 moving back to Denver, and 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. She named the company after her mom and sister,Kim and Carolyn Rose, in honor of their support, friendship and love over the years. Melanie lives in Denver with her husband, Adam, their sweet dachshunds, and a whole flock of hens!
