I was born Kanei Keitt in New York City and raised in Pennsylvania in a family with many siblings and a village of loved ones. I am a wife and mother of eight, four daughters and four American Bulldogs.

I joined the military at 20 years old. I have lived in 5 different countries that have given me the opportunity to immerse myself in different cultural experiences. These experiences have enriched my love and interest in multicultural weddings and events.

Personally, I love trying new restaurants and cuisines, traveling, dancing like nobody’s watching and I love to gaze at any scenery involving flowing water.I love to be in touch with nature and its natural beauty.

After 17 years of dedicated service, I gleam with excitement to combine my strength as a military leader with my style and passion for event planning (especially weddings!) In 2020, Events by Kanei (EBK) was created to plan and execute all your event needs.
