Meet the Cloud Creative Team
KC Cloud, Owner/Creative Director
I was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. I attended TCU and received my Bachelor’s in Science in NeuroPsychology, and continue to live in Fort Worth with my husband, toddler son and our two Great Pyrenees pups. My favorite part of wedding planning is taking all your huge ideas, and turning them into something fun and unique to the couple - whether it be paper goods with hand drawn illustrations or a unique color palette, dreaming up fun designs and bringing them to life is the best part! Wedding planning should be fun - not stressful! By focusing on bringing together multiple personalized details and the perfect vendors I’m able to create your dream wedding day. I loves to talk to anybody and everyone, so feel free to contact me to pick my brain about what's offered here!
