The Career Expert
With a top, trend-setting brand Kellee has committed herself to taking the stress out of wedding planning.
While working in the bridal industry and simultaneously helping her sister plan her wedding in 2010, Kellee Kahlil experienced firsthand the difficulty of making a wedding come to life. Scouring hundreds of retailers, blogs and vendor sites, she became frustrated by the inability to search wedding ideas, shop products and hire vendors in one place. After moving to New York City and immersing herself in the NY tech community, Kellee fully committed to solving the bridal search problem. One year later, on February 14, 2012, Lover.ly launched, forever changing the digital bridal landscape.
Since inception, with Kellee at the helm, the site has grown into the leading trend-setting brand connecting millennial brides, bridesmaids and their wedding guests to gorgeous inspiration, products, celebrity insider scoops, fashion & beauty hacks and expert advice.
