Our Columbia Team
803.978.9707 | Contact Lenna by email
From Columbia, SC, Lenna has not strayed far away from home! Although, her extended family is originally from Greece. Lenna graduated from the University of South Carolina in 2018 with a degree in Hospitality Management. Throughout high school and college, Lenna worked in many different restaurants starting as a hostess and eventually working her way into management. Her first job outside of college was in Special Events and that is where she discovered her passion for the special events industry and what brought her to Party Reflections. With a background in customer service and special events, the transition into a customer-based sales role for an event rental company has been pretty smooth.
In her spare time, Lenna likes to spend time with her two dogs, Lebron and Bristol! Making sure that they are healthy and happy is the biggest priority in her life. (My boyfriend and family are cool sometimes as well)
803.978.9205 | Contact Kaelin by email
Kaelin was born and raised on the Space Coast of Florida, sharing her hometown island with Kennedy Space Center. In pursuit of a profession in business and marketing she relocated to Charlotte, NC in 2011. After several successful years of sales experience at Red Ventures, Kaelin chose to navigate back to her happy place working with people and the events that make lifetime memories for them. She spent several years working in the food service industry where “special events” became her passion. With new opportunities in wedding and event planning waiting for her, Kaelin moved to Columbia, SC. For the past two years, she has been involved in planning and coordinating more than 100 special events throughout the southeast US with some of the best vendors in the industry.
Through her involvement in wedding and special occasions planning in Columbia, she was a regular customer of Party Reflections! Faced with an opportunity to follow her love of event design and décor, she welcomed the idea of joining the Party Reflection’s team as an account executive. Using her creativity to curate her client’s ideas into their event brings her great joy. Customer satisfaction is important to Kaelin and no occasion is too big or too small. Kaelin loves challenges and welcomes her clients to share their visions.
Odd as it may seem growing up in Florida, Kaelin spent much of her life on the ice – in figure skates. At the young age of 4 she competed in her first figure skating competition. Many competitions and over a decade of athletic training later, it is easy to see the history of Kaelin’s work ethic and passion for the performing arts in her ability to create an atmosphere that can take one’s breath away. When not at work, Kaelin loves to spend time with her fur-babies, Maui (black lab) and Kali (Aussie-lab mix). Kaelin also loves to spend time traveling and seeing the world.
