Hi! My name is Connie Dunn and I am the new owner of Kindred Event Studio. I have known Sara for over 15 years and worked in the wedding industry even longer.
In November of 2017 I approached Sara about working with her at Kindred as my family had recently returned from living in South East Asia for four years. She said yes and the journey of our relationship growing from friendship to co-workers began. Sara welcomed me with open arms into the Kindred family and I've had the honor of walking alongside Waco brides again. In the spring of 2018, Sara asked if I'd be interested in becoming the owner of Kindred so that she could focus on her growing retail store, Gather. After much prayer, it felt right. And here we are!
I coordinated my first wedding while I was still in college in 1997 for a friend. In the early 2000's I began helping other girls in my church plan their weddings out of friendship. Eventually, wedding planning and coordinating became my "side hustle" while my kids were little. I averaged 8 weddings a year until our family moved to South East Asia to work with orphans and street kids. When we moved back it only seemed fitting to go back to the work I loved....helping brides and their families plan an amazing wedding and loving each other through the process!
I am honored to be a part of the Waco Wedding Industry and look forward to walking with many of you as we create the wedding or event of your dreams!
