Hi there! My name is Elyse and I am the Owner, Designer, Planner, & Coordinator of Elyse Events! This business was born out of my obsessive love for design, planning, organization, attention to detail, and seeing people happy! I have been planning since my third birthday (no, really), but I discovered my true passion for event planning in 2014 while assisting a local Wedding Planner. Two weeks before graduating college, I was awarded the wonderful opportunity to be the On-Site Coordinator for SeaVenture Beach Hotel (perfect timing, right?). Four months later, I was promoted, and my position was extended out to their sister property, Sycamore Mineral Springs Resort. In my two years of working for these beautiful properties, I coordinated hundreds of events (literally)—ranging anywhere from birthday parties to corporate meetings to weddings, and anywhere in between. This experience gave me the confidence to go off on my own, and I never looked back! I have officially been in business since 2018 and truly believe I have the best job in the world. I love working with couples who want a fabulous wedding, but also value the true meaning behind what their special day is all about—each other! I specialize in designing gorgeous weddings with fun pops of color and twists of uniqueness that highlight couples’ personalities. There is no greater joy to me than planning an amazing day that will be remembered forever, as well as becoming great friends with my clients along the way! I consider it an incredible honor to play a role in bringing so many people's special days to fruition. I’m just out here living my dream on the Central Coast of California!
