What makes Copper & Clay unique?

Copper and Clay Creative (formerly Kelly Jones Events) was birthed from a longing to produce beautiful, unique experiences for people to share. The events, or experiences, that we create are a picture of something greater - lots of people from different walks of life coming together to take part in something bigger than themselves.

Seeing community form and art experienced in the form of an event satisfies a certain desire. Creating a space for people to experience something together, enter into community together, and see what big dreams little people are able to think up, is what we love most about event planning.

Copper and Clay’s Owner, Head Stylist and Head Planner Kelly Jones, is Texas born, Oklahoma raised and currently calls Austin her home, along with her husband Ryan. She has planned, styled and run events all over the country, and loves infusing different creative elements into each event she runs. She has a passion for working with people to bring their dreams to life in the form of events and would love to be able to create with you, today!



Sydney Neal - Head Coordinator

Sydney is North Carolina born and bred and currently lives in Austin with her husband, Bryce. She has a passion for hospitality, details and creating unique environments to bring people together. Having planned and executed events all over the country, she knows exactly what it takes to pull off the most memorable celebration in a person’s life. When Sydney isn’t busy organizing details and making to-do lists, she spends her free time scouting out all of Austin’s best happy hours, traveling, cheering on the Tarheels and trying new recipes.



Hiring Copper and Clay was the best decision we made when planning our wedding. Month-of coordinating saved us so much time and stress. Kelly provided honest and timely feedback (even when we didn’t) and really formed our vague styling preferences into what we both considered a beautiful wedding. She even helped me surprise my husband with a slip-n-slide exit! He was shocked and of course loved it! The wedding itself was seamless and the best part was that we got to enjoy every minute.

Copper and Clay eased our minds through the entire process of planning our wedding. The templates that were provided truly helped me wrap my mind around certain tasks and even helped out when our photographer needed a photo list, too! You can tell that Kelly truly cares about creating a beautiful, seamless experience for her brides (and grooms!). Her communication was wonderful between myself and the other vendors, and, when needed, she offered advice when I was struggling to make certain decisions. Kelly is a gem!

We sincerely appreciate all the hard work Kelly put into planning our wedding! It turned out absolutely beautiful, and everything went so smoothly day-of! Everything was executed perfectly and we were so pleased. I was also really impressed with how subtly Kelly directed everything during the reception. Kelly was there to tell us where to go when we needed to be somewhere, but we never felt pulled around, so we were able to enjoy the party!
