Kari started her career in event planning and Community Affairs at EDS in 1993. She planned large scale mega-events like recognition and awards ceremonies, as well as small happenings like volunteer lunches with EDS executives. Kari also planned clients' dream weddings and getaways in her spare time. After starting a family in 1999, Kari scaled back on work and changed course. However, she couldn't get rid of that event planning bug and continues to utilize her skills coordinating school and charity events. Now that all her kids are at Texas A&M (Whoop!), Kari focuses her efforts full-time on making your big day the Southern Bash it was meant to be.
