Lindsay Kooser  |  Founder and Lead Coordinator
Topeka, Lawrence & Kansas City, Kansas  |

Hi, I’m Lindsay K!

When I’m not planning events, you’ll find me spending time with my husband Jared and soaking up as much playtime with our son Konner as we can. Jared and I were married for ten years before Konner came into our lives. We’ve had such a fun time and are so in love with our little boy.

Most people think I sip coffee in my slippers from my home office all day, but planning events is hard work. I obviously coordinate on wedding day, but every other day I’m coordinating meetings between vendors and brides, discussing future weddings with our coordinators, and planning our training classes, bridal shows, and online events. In 2020 we launched our first Bridal Magazine and our My Wedding Planner is now for sale on AMAZON!

I’ve been working in the wedding industry since 2010, and it has been such a fun experience! I’m a graphic designer by trade and started my first business designing wedding stationery. I loved working in the industry and added Wedding Planning and Coordination as a service to brides.

In 2018 I launched our new business, Veil Events. I developed a training program that allowed me to add team members, and we now have six coordinators with Veil Events. We also just launched an online bridal training program to help even more brides with their wedding planning.

Being the owner of Veil Events has been my dream job. I initially never thought about working in the wedding industry. If I did, I never thought I could make a living doing it. With hard work and the support of my amazing family, it’s been such a successful adventure. I’m so excited for the future of Veil Events, and I’m looking forward to helping so many couples with their dream wedding.

Contact Veil Events for your wedding coordination.

Lindsay Eshelman   |  Wedding Coordinator
Topeka, Lawrence & Kansas City, Kansas  |

Hello, I’m Lindsay E.!
If you need me on a day off, I’d probably be on the couch watching football or scary movies with my 2 fur babies! I secretly wish every event I worked at was a Halloween party. I’m that friend that hosts the annual Boo Bash at my house each year! We definitely go all out! Currently, I’m a Full-time Dental Hygiene student, and that keeps me very busy these days.
I’ve been working in the wedding industry since 2014. Lindsay Kooser trained me back in the day, and I ran my own Wedding Coordination business until I joined this team.
I LOVE weddings because you get to be a part of such a special moment in someone’s life. On the wedding day, the Bride relies on you so much to make everything run so smoothly, and at the end of the evening, when she has a HUGE smile on their face, dancing away the night with friends, you know you have made a difference! It’s such a rewarding feeling.
My favorite part of the day is the first look, whether that be a set-aside time or when the doors open, and the groom sees the Bride for the first time. I can always tell the Bride relaxes even more once she is with her groom.
Contact us if you’re looking for some extra help for your big day!




Kaylie Rogers | Wedding Coordinator

Kansas City, Missouri |

Hi, I’m Kaylie!
I started working at Veil Events as an intern, then became a wedding assistant, and now I’m a lead coordinator! I’m also a newlywed! My husband Spencer and I tied the knot on August 2nd this year! We live in KCMO in our new home and love it here! I work full time at Stoney Creek Hotel, so it’s safe to say I LOVE events!
I love weddings, especially because I get to help other brides make their dreams come true on the most special day of their life. Veil Events helped me on my big day, and it was the best decision we made when booking vendors! I love that I can give back and allow other brides to relax and enjoy their day!
My favorite part of wedding day is when the bride gets to see the venue all decorated and put together! It’s so exciting to see what she imagined and worked so hard for, finally put in to place for her dream day. A fun fact about me is that I love ceramics! One of my favorite things in life is throwing pottery on the wheel.
Please reach out to Veil Events if you’re looking for a wedding coordinator. I can’t wait to help you on your big day!

Paige Carrier | Wedding Coordinator

Kansas City |

Hi, I’m Paige!

I was born and raised in Topeka, KS. After attending the University of Kansas for college, I secured a position in client services at a Kansas City marketing company and have lived in KC ever since. It is in this role that I learned that I love a good to-do list.

I started assisting in wedding coordination and venue management part-time five years ago. Currently, I also work for a startup helping with marketing and product development.

In my downtime, you’ll probably find me hanging out with friends or family, whether it be watching a KU or Chiefs game, vegging out on the couch watching a Netflix series, or reading a good book. I’m a sucker for a good project so I am constantly changing something in my house, baking, or completing a random craft project. 

I have a fur baby, a cat, named Selby. My parents still live in Topeka and my two sisters live in Denver and Chicago. I try to make it home and travel as much as I can to visit. 

My favorite part on wedding day is when all the last-minute details leading up to the big day all come together. The room is set, the guests are starting to arrive, and there is excitement in the air… it’s go time!

Abby Lewis | Wedding Coordinator

Topeak, Lawrence & Kansas City |

Hi, I’m Abby!

I was born and raised in Chicago, IL, and lived there for about three years after college and before moving to Dodge City, KS, to be with my now-husband. Both considered ‘Windy Cities’ but couldn’t be more different ????

When I’m not working weddings, I love hanging out with family and friends, doing hot yoga, exploring neighborhood coffee shops, rooting on the Jayhawks, and traveling! 

I am currently working for the corporate event planning company in Chicago that I started with directly after college. I work remotely for them on a part-time basis and frequently travel back to Chicago to help them with large meetings for Fortune 500 companies. It is a great experience, and I love the team that I work with! 

My husband Brad and I live in Topeka, KS, with our almost 11-year old black lab, Drake. We moved to Topeka in 2018 for my husband’s job after living in Dodge City, KS. We miss being so close to my husband’s family back in Dodge, but love Topeka so far and close to some of our good friends in Kansas City and Lawrence.  

My favorite part of wedding day is the moment right before the ceremony starts. Lining up the bridal party and family, the anticipation, the excitement, and the sweet moments between mother and son or father and daughter before walking down the aisle always make me tear up. It’s the calm before the storm, and it’s a beautiful moment to be a part of.
