Charm is deceptive,

and beauty is fleeting;
    but a woman who fears the Lord 

is to be praised.

Proverbs 31:30

My name is Alisha Richardson and I am the founder and owner of ThirtyOne:Thirty Events. What started as a dream became a reality in the spring of 2017 when I decided to leave my job in the world of corporate events and launch my own full-time events company. I was working a million hours and traveling nearly 50% of the time. With a husband and two children at home, that just wasn't working for me anymore. I made the leap to branch out and own my own business and it has been so worth it! 

While I have been coordinating weddings professionally for nearly 6 years, to do it under the banner of my own company is unbelievably rewarding. We have met so many incredible people along this journey and every one of them has taught us something new about our job. We would not be the same without you.  So thank you!

Above, you'll see the reason my company has its name. I am a follower of Jesus Christ and my faith is a central component of who I am.

When I'm not coordinating events, I'm a full-time wife to my husband, Matt, and mom to my kids, Aubrey and Theodore. They are my life and I love them dearly! I'm an avid coffee drinker, self proclaimed foodie, and lover of traveling.

Every once in a might catch me on stage performing in Kansas City's professional and community theatre scene. Singing and acting is a passion of mine and I do it whenever I can.

I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with you on your special event.

Senior Wedding Coordinator

My name is Hailey Kendrick and I am an event coordinator at Thirty One: Thirty events. Being the type of person that analyzes over the details and has a passion for design, I found my way to the bridal industry after seven years in specialty retail. I turned my passion for working with teams to achieve visual perfection into working with couples to take stress off their big day and see their dreams come to fruition.


The opportunity to work with couples is unbelievably rewarding. While I'm not coordinating events, I am the general manager at a new bridal shop in Kansas City, The One Bridal. I'm a huge podcast and book nerd and I also love spending time with my Goldendoodle, Bodie.

Lead Coordinator

I am Kim Garnier, and I am a Lead Coordinator with ThirtyOne:Thirty Events. It is such a joy to work with so many fantastic couples and families to execute the events they've always dreamed of. I have owned my own events company and also worked in corporate events for years, but there is something special about the work we do here at ThirtyOne:Thirty.
