About Us
Founded by Kelli Smith in 2010 after finding no options available in the local area for couples looking for a Courthouse Elopement or an Officiant for a Small Ceremony.  She was fortunate to find a wonderful Officiant in Greenville but recognized the need in the local area.  This sparked the realization that many other couples might not want or be able to afford a never-ending payment for a big wedding or to renew their vows especially on a shoestring budget.  In her pursuit to provide alternatives for couples she became ordained by the Universal Life Church, and set out on a mission to organize and officiate elopements, small ceremonies and fill the much-needed options in Lexington, Columbia and surrounding areas for those couples wanting a high class event while working with a shoestring budget.  

Events on a Shoestring was born with the belief that our customers' needs are of the utmost importance.  Our entire team is committed to meeting those needs and providing a memorable event whether it's your closest friend and family present or just the two of you.   

As a result, a high percentage of our business is from customers referrals.
We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the industry.
