Fast Five: Kalahari Resorts and Conventions

Recently engaged? First stop – your wedding venue!

Not only do you need to find the Austin wedding venue that has the right look, feel, space and amenities you’re looking for – you want to find a wedding venue that has the right person. And by “right person” we mean a passionate and experienced wedding sales rep that knows their stuff!

Social Sales Manager Kelli Riccio clearly loves her job planning weddings at Kalahari Resorts and Conventions! We recently sat down with Kelli and talked her favorite wedding tradition, planning advice, and why she loves planning weddings so much.

What is your favorite wedding tradition and why?

When a bride walks down the isle with her escort to give her away, a tear (or tow) rolls down my face. This is the purest and sweetest moment shared between two people, and is my ultimate favorite tradition.

Why do you love this company and your job?

My job is so inspiring! I get to make peoples dreams come true on their happiest day of their life. I get to watch two people in love surrounded by the ones they love as they begin their life’s journey with one another. Kalahari allows us to take away the stress and distractions not only in the planning stages but on the wedding day with all we have to offer the guest ad and our clients.

What is your best planning advice or tip for couples?

Be happy. If your choices do not make you both happy, it is not worth it! Make choices that will be lasting impressions for you two and that you feel good about spending your money on.

What services do you provide?

We have it all! We are start to finish working with one Manager so you are connected and the manager knows you an your plans so well. Our bakery can make wedding cakes, dessert bars, cupcakes, and even donut walls. We have indoor and out door ceremony/reception space along with exquisite cuisine for all types f eaters. Kalahari can make the day magical and smooth, just as it should be!

What other cities or locations have you worked weddings in?

I have done weddings all over New England (even for the New England Patriot’s), the Dallas Area, and the Austin Area!
