After working as a critical care nurse for 13 years, Kellie Bryson decided it was time to leave that world and dive further into the events industry. Her love of baking and making pretty desserts helped to launch the cake division, The Bake Shoppe. Once they started producing wedding cakes, wedding catering followed very quickly. Working in amazing venues all over Middle Tennessee helped her to learn that she wanted to have a dedicated venue that could also be called home with a team that produces all year round and on property. Today, A Catered Affair is based at Legacy Farms. One of the best parts of the job is seeing personal growth and professional growth in her employees. The company cannot exist without strong, capable team members. Watching a vision come to life from paper to right before a client walks in the room is her favorite part of the event process. In her spare time, she loves to spend time with her sweet daughter and read food magazines.
