About the Expo Owners

Who's Running the Show?

Welcome to Busy Bride Expo, where wedding dreams become reality!

Founded by Kellie Cantrell and Kimy Wall, two seasoned experts in marketing, event planning, and creating unforgettable experiences, Busy Bride Expo is not your average "corporate" bridal show.

Kellie boasts 23 years of experience in event planning and marketing. Notably, she worked for years in casino events creating VIP experiences and she served as the Executive Director for the Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival, managing an event with 30,000 attendees and 200 vendors. Kellie's passion for creating seamless events and her keen eye for detail ensure that every aspect of Busy Bride Expo is meticulously planned and executed.


Kimy brings over two decades of experience in marketing, event planning, wedding coordination, trade shows, and public affairs to the table. With a background that includes ten years as the owner of San Diego-based Busy Bride Consulting, Kimy has helped countless couples bring their wedding vision to life. As a past "Best of Weddings" recipient from The Knot and an Emmy Award nominee for commercial content, Kimy's wedding event and marketing expertise will place brides in the capable hands of some of the region's best wedding vendors. 

At Busy Bride Expo, we're more than just a wedding trade show – we're a complete experience dedicated to celebrating the engaged couple and their upcoming wedding. We're thrilled to welcome vendors and attendees alike to join us for a day filled with inspiration, connections, and memories that will last a lifetime.
