Zena started her Wedding and Event Planning journey almost a decade ago. Beginning at Bluewater Vacation Rentals as their Event Planner, planning events for the Islander Hotel and all Bluewater Vacation Rental Houses and gaining tons of hands on experience. After a few years, and after the birth of her second baby, she decided to make a change and start her own Coordination Company. Still managing events for Bluewater, but also branching out to other venues in the area, like the Celebration Cottage (one of their packages includes our Coordination services!), Zena was able to grow KAST into what it is today! She has a passion for having fun, making people laugh and is known for keeping calm in tough situations. Her team has planned, coordinated and executed over 500 events to date, of all types and sizes. At any given time there are five or six talented planners, coordinators and designers on staff and ready to help make any event just a little more....enjoyable.

Lead Coordinator

Alyssa joined the team a few years ago and quickly soared to the role of Lead Coordinator. She is very detailed, organized, and accountable. Alyssa is a Montessori preschool teacher by day, Wedding Coordinator by Weekend! She is a mom of two and when she isn't working, or if she isn't at Disney, you can catch her on the sidelines cheering on her girls at Dance competitions!

Mark has been working behind the scenes with KAST for years and made the decision to join the team full time a couple of years ago. His role is unique as he is Zena's Husband and biggest supporter in her goal to open her business. He is always there to reign in our ideas and bring them to life. He is a skilled craftsman and when he isn't working on our ever-growing to do list, you can find him enjoying a good beer, hanging outside with the kids, or in the workshop.

Mel has been with KAST since we first began. She has been involved in all aspects of event planning and has an unparalleled eye for design. She is a mom of two, a talented artist and a great asset to the KAST team. When not working an event, or designing in the floral shop, you can find her outside digging in the dirt, snapping beautiful photos and hanging with her family
