Kayln Stephens has always had a love for weddings. Even as a small child, she dreamed of being a wedding planner, but it wasn’t until after college that she decided to take a leap of faith and risk everything to begin Weddings by Kayln in 2007. She quickly discovered being a young business owner was harder and more rewarding than she ever could have imagined! Even though she had worked harder than she ever had before, doing endless hours of research, answering thousands of e-mails, being on the phone for hours every day, and managing all of the legalities and financial responsibilities that comes with owning her own business, Kayln still felt that she had made the right choice to follow her dream. She knows how stressful it can be for a bride to try to plan their own wedding because she was once a bride on a budget and spent hours setting up on the day of her wedding and then hours cleaning up after the wedding. It was then that she realized that I never wanted a bride to experience that on her wedding day. Although her wedding was beautiful, most of her memories consist of work and stress instead of treasuring all of the special moments. Kayln always says that there is no better feeling in the world than being a part of one of the most important days in a person's life and helping them make their wedding dreams possible.
Fun Facts about Kayln:
She starts her day at 4:00am with a cup of coffee and her laptop.
In her spare time (the little that she has), Kayln loves to catch up on sleep and family.
- When she's not attending weddings or meetings, you can find Kayln in sweatpants and a t-shirt. She absolutely loves to be comfy!
