Making Dreams Come True
We are Carolina natives with a passion for having fun. We met each other on the first day of our MBA program at Clemson University. Hudson Park is the brainchild of what we love, what we’re good at, and what makes us tick. We are both type A personalities, we rep Virgo nation and some may say we’re a BIT extra. We also hold each other accountable, we value professionalism and at the end of the day, we GET STUFF DONE!
We decided to be BOLD, TAKE A RISK (ahh scary words)- and took a leap of faith to share our passions of planning and designing with you because EVERYONE deserves to feel celebrated and have fun!
We believe there are 3 key stages to every event; Collaborate, Create, and CELEBRATE! We want to collaborate with our clients to bring their ideas to life. We love taking something from paper and pencil and creating lifelong memories. Life should not only be lived, it should be CELEBRATED!
Kimberly & Courtney
A Perfectionist with Every Detail
I have loved to plan and design things- parties, spaces, my forever home- for as long as I remember. I am the type of person who has their future children named and their nurseries already decorated in my mind, and also maybe saved on my laptop, seriously ask Courtney I’ve showed her the designs.
I even planned my own wedding in what some may call record time- 3 weeks! For me, designing is what makes me feel most happy, it’s what makes me feel internally fulfilled- my God given calling if you will. (Then came along Courtney and my life has not been, and will never be, the same because of our friendship.) The saying “do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life” had been nagging at me for years- together we have thought about and designed some version of Hudson Park for more than 4 years now. I am ecstatic to have a formal outlet for my love of design and overjoyed to bring that passion to help you design the event of your dreams.

Turning a Vision into a Reality
I am an extrovert to the EXTREME and I love being around people. I started planning events when I was in college at Clemson by helping plan recruiting events for prospective students. I really enjoyed creating experiences where I could share my
passion, CLEMSON, with others and have them enjoy it as much as I did.
Fast forward to post-grad life. *Insert Kimberly* Kimberly and I met on the first day of grad school, I sat beside her and she gave me a compliment… INSTANT BESTIES! At this point in life I found myself always being the go-to planner for all events for my friends. I have a lot of friends 💁🏾♀️. This lead to A LOT of bachelorette parties, wedding showers, and the ever-popular girls’ trips! My first official wedding planning experience came when my boss asked me to help plan her daughter’s wedding. That was a new experience to me but I am a firm believer in the “make it happen” moments. If there is an idea, there is a way to make it happen, you just have to utilize all of your resources.
I feel like I am living my best life when I am planning events. I thrive when I get to plan out the “How” of an event. Hudson Park allows me to live out my strengths, bring new ideas to the table, and most importantly it allows me to make other people happy.
