Kirkbrides Photo Shoot

Get to know our
wedding planning and coordination team!





This summer, most of the main members of the Kirkbrides team got together with Rachel and Ted from Linczak Photography for some new headshots. We had so much fun and were able to really relax in front of the camera as they worked their magic posing us and making us feel like movie stars. At one point, a tour bus dropped off a group of people visiting from Europe where we were shooting, and they were taking pictures of us getting our pictures taken with their cameras! Haha!

I HIGHLY recommend Linczak Photography for any type of photography needs - wedding, family, baby, headshots, modeling, etc. - they are such professionals and extremely talented. They are also just overall wonderful people and very fun to be around. Thank you so much Rachel and Ted and I look forward to our next project together!!!


Allison Miller
Lead Full Service Planner


Allison is an extremely valuable asset to our team and has swiftly taken on numerous high-end weddings over the past year and half for Kirkbrides. At the rate our business has grown this past year, I don't know how I could have survived without her! She has taken on the Kirkbrides process and has used it to independently work her magic to make many brides and grooms happy while receiving rave reviews from our clients. She creates the most classy and organized weddings while making brides feel very secure that they are in good hands. She is currently very busy taking on plans for new 2011 Kirkbrides weddings!


Maura McCool
Wedding Day Coordinator


Maura is the most polite and positive person in the entire world :). Our clients absolutely love her, and every event she works we hear a few comments on her upbeat and caring persona. Maura is able to take any project I send her way and do a five star job. She is very skilled at managing her own wedding day coordination jobs as well as being our team "shuttle queen". Maura first started as an intern for Kirkbrides in the Spring of 2009 and continues to be a cherished member of our team.

Michelle Slattery
Full-Time Assistant


Michelle started as an intern with Kirkbrides in the Spring of 2010 and continues to assist Allison and me full time. She is the "craftiest" member of our team! Michelle is incredibly easygoing, kind and responsible. Although she is about to finish up her Event Planning and Business degree at Bowling Green in the Spring, she is very mature for her age. If she decides to move back to Cleveland to work with Kirkbrides full time I will be so happy! And I know that some of our 2011 clients she has already helped will be very happy to see her on their wedding day.

Valarie Kirkbride
Owner and Lead Full Service Planner






I feel so lucky to have such a wonderful group to work with and help take care of our clients. I have heard complimentary feedback about each individual on our team from numerous clients. We look forward to helping many more wedding dreams come true in the years to come!
