What they call you: Kimberly Martrise Wells, also known as “K.Martrise”

Describe Covesa Kelly Events, LLC: I believe that CKE is comprised of event planners that are capable of planning an event beyond your dreams.


Fave color to work with: I am a planner at heart and love every aspect of event planning, especially if there's a flexible budget. My favorite color to work with is orange because of all of the fun options you can combine it with for fabulous outcomes. You can go from orange and turquoise in the summertime to orange, shades of red, and brown in the fall. Orange is a versatile color that can be used all year round.


Yummiest event menu food item: A few favorite food items are simple chicken, pasta, and salad dishes. With the right combined spices you can make that meal soooo delish.


Go-to adult beverage and recipe: Where do I start? Oh, just one. Okay…

Peach Lemon Drop Recipe:

  • 2 ounces frozen Peach vodka

  • 1/2 ounce triple sec

  • 1 ounce simple syrup

  • 1 ounce fresh lemon juice

  • Garnish: sugar rim


Favorite cake and filling: Not really a sweets gal but a great buttercream is good for me.


Why you love being on the CKE Team: I can't get enough of CKE! We are more than a team or even sisterfrans, we are a family. I was the first to be hired, so it’s a love and I'm very protective of the family.

Event Planner

"When one door closes another one will open - sometimes it's God's way of pushing us from our comfort zone to another level in life. "

What they call you: Kristen Renee Simpson 


Tell Us About You: 

My first name is from a character’s name on the 1970s/80s tv show Dallas. My mom was awaiting my arrival and heard the name and loved it, so she decided to name me Kristen. Just that simple lol. However, my middle name, Renee, is more meaningful to me because I share the same middle name with my mom. It has actually become the middle name of baby girls for 3 generations in my family. Hopefully, one day I will be able to continue the tradition.
