At Shindig Events, we believe PBR cans make great vases, every wedding could use a drag queen and a nacho bar is always a great buffet choice.

If you have a good, crazy, whackadoodle vision of your big day but just need a little extra nudge in the right direction, we've got the DIY tools to share or we can do them for you. Whether it's tabletop design, activities for visiting guests, favors, menu selection and whatever your engorged heart desires, Shindig is here to make-a your dreams come true.

"I trusted Kelli to plan the first ever Offbeat Empire party. Not only did she craft the perfect event for 150 guests, but she did it all WAY under-budget. Pure magic!"

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

Now in Seattle, and with over 12 years in event management and entertainment production in Los Angeles, we've been involved in a few fantastic freak shows, celebrity soirees, and fabulous festivals. Those off-the-hook sorts of affairs are exactly what we crave and are passionate to deliver to clients who are just as enthusiastic! Yeah, boyyyyy!

Our Rolodex (yes, the old school kind) is chock full of venues that are hidden gems, unexpected options for catering, and a connection to the Northwest kook-mmunity at large! Shindig is very thrifty with your hard-earned dollars and gives you plenty of options for making them work for you and your event. We like being original — just like you! So you KNOW we are totes funzies.

The Nitty Gritty: If you only need a little help with some ideas with design, vendor suggestions, and a little hand-holding, we can provide consulting services so you can get to werrrrrk.

Our most popular option is our Wedding Day Management Services (including day-of coordination and rehearsal). Also a hot item in the Shindig catalog is Full Service Wedding Production (where you just tell us a few things, and we just make sure you show up to get hitched!).

Examples of my work

Previously featured on Offbeat Bride:

As the proud party planner of the Offbeat Empire Reception, Kelli and Shindig Events rocked Seattle with badass karaoke, super swoxes (yup, swag boxes), nerdy burlesque, scrumptious nibbly things in the funkiest space in the city. In creating the atmosphere, the environment was transformed into an electric boogaloo funkytown wonderland. Revelers danced the night away until the late night snack was in their hands.
