Meet casey

Hi! I am so excited you stopped by!

I am Casey Kane the Owner and Head Event Planner for Bright DeSigns. Born and raised in the Midwest I graduated from the University of Iowa (Go Hawks!) in 2012 and immediately began working for a non-profit where I planned several large events. This is where I found my love and passion for all things design and planning. I married the love of my life in September 2013, and it was The Best Day EVER. It was the final nudge I needed to take a leap of faith and create Bright DeSigns so that every couple could experience the same joy and happiness my husband Matt and I had on our big day.

I have been guiding Brides through the planning process for the past five years and I thrive off of creating a one of a kind design for each individual client. From our initial consultation to the day of execution I am so excited to help you celebrate the future with your favorite person by your side. I can’t wait to hear from you!

xoxo, Casey Kane


Meet Matt

I am Matt, husband and sidekick to Casey Kane. I met Casey in high school where we began dating and then attended the University of Iowa graduating in 2012 with a degree in Interdepartmental Studies and Entrepreneurial Management.

One of the unique things about Bright DeSigns is that we are a husband and wife team who are dedicated to making your event a one of a kind, fun, and unique experience. Often times you will find me unloading a trailer, hanging lights, and pretty much anything Casey needs me to do (haha). I look forward to meeting you throughout the planning process and executing a flawless event for you. 

Cheers, Matt

love notes

I have had the privilege to work with some of the most lovely people the past five years. Here is what they have to say:

Allison & Dustin

"I did meet with another wedding planner in the area before going with Casey. The reason I went with bright designs, Casey, is I felt like the other planner would've been good, but she would have made my wedding "her" vision and not mine, also I didn't have the opportunity to use my own local vendors if I wanted to. Quality with Bright Designs was top notch. Her vision is beautiful and she completely got my vision & took into account my long list of must haves. Her responsiveness to my every question was super fast. Her professionalism is untouched to none, even with my bad habit of second guessing everything, she stayed completely professional and I look back and have so much respect for that quality in her. Value was never questioned, I knew I couldn't have everything I wanted & have it go the literal, "perfect" way it did if I didn't have someone there, days before & the day of, setting up and working side by side with other vendors. Casey was very flexible with mine and my husbands crazy busy work schedules. One suggestion to the "bride to be" (which would've saved me lots of time) is just listen to her, she will get you the best rates by far, for expensive invitations, paper products etc... and you will be soo happy with the quality. Maybe one of my favorite parts of working with Casey is, she kept me excited about the process, even when I hit stressful points with the budget. I always felt like a valued client. I would work with her again in a heart beat."

“When Nick and I decided to have a tent wedding we just knew we would need a wedding designer/planner. There’s so much that goes into a tent wedding… we wouldn’t have even known where to start without the help of Casey and Matt. First of all, let me point out Casey and Matt are two of the nicest people I have ever met. We absolutely love them. They were an absolute joy to work with over the past year. Planning a wedding should be fun and exciting… not super stressful. Bright Designs allowed us to sit back and truly enjoy the planning process as well as the week leading up to the wedding. The week of our wedding not only was rain in the forecast, but the temps were not ideal. A high of 56 degrees with rain was what we were up against. And let me tell you Casey had not only a plan A, but a B and a C! She put my racing mind at ease. Luckily, we only needed plan A! When I saw our ceremony site, cocktail area, and reception tent… I was speechless. I’m not kidding when I say it was the most beautiful set up I have ever seen! I cannot believe the amount of compliments we are receiving. Everyone was saying… we have never been to a wedding like this, it’s like a fairytale, every detail is perfect! Bright Designs nailed my vision… and actually it was more than my vision. It was more than I ever could’ve imagined. So Casey and Matt… thank you again for the millionth time. This day could not have been what it was without your awesome design, spreadsheets, budget, talent, and patience. Thank you for making the first day of the rest of our lives… the best one ever!”

Alex & Tom

"All I can say is WOW - Bright DeSigns NAILED it. Casey and Matt captured our vision PERFECTLY - we were truly speechless when we walked in for our room reveal. Their creativity, attention to detail, communication and professionalism was spot on. Their willingness and excitement to think outside the box and try something new in a venue they've worked with before meant a lot to both Tom and myself. Casey and Matt are the nicest, most genuine, and hard working humans we know and we feel so fortunate to have worked with them this past year. When I first met with Casey to begin planning, I remember trying to communicate my vision to her. After only a few minutes into our meeting, she knew exactly what we wanted and was able to verbalize my vision better than I could; it was like she was inside my mind. If it wasn't for Bright DeSigns, this past year of wedding planning would have been far more stressful than it was. Their communication with all parties involved in the planning process and level of professionalism was of the highest quality. Their personable nature, kind hearts, and level of excitement and passion for what they do was an added bonus. Bright DeSigns, thank you for your time, effort, and all the hoops you jumped through to make our day the most special and magical day ever. It was a true dream come true. It was truly the BEST DAY EVER!”
