Event planning with sophistication & style

I love to celebrate and believe there is always a reason for a party! After hosting many large personal parties and organizing successful work-related social gatherings for over 300 people, I decided to become a certified International Event and Wedding planner and founded Events with Elegance. The focus of Events with Elegance is to plan corporate and private events such as retreats, meetings, conferences, birthday, holiday, and themed parties, and weddings. I hit all of the details from the “Center of attention” to “Who would have ever thought of that!” My specialty is creating a “Wow” factor that will give your attendees and guests an event to remember and keep them asking when the next retreat or party will take place.

I grew up in the Pacific Northwest’s Seattle area; with our sometimes unpredictable weather I know how to incorporate indoor and outdoor spaces, fresh, seasonal décor, and the great variety of fresh foods into your event. Some of my favorite events to coordinate are employee recognition events, employee picnics, educator conferences, student competitions, milestone birthday celebrations, holiday parties, and themed events such as seafood bakes, wine tasting parties, and dessert parties.


Events with Elegance offers a full array of services that can be customized to fit any budget and any special request. My services can be packaged to include:

Recommending and reserving venues
Block hotel rooms for out of town attendees and guests
Organize meals using on-site and off-site caterers
Decorations to fit your theme
Florist recommendations
Order and mail Invitations
Manage R.S.V.P.s
Catering recommendations
Entertainment and guest speaker recommendations
Gown fittings
Day of event on-site set-up and services

I am connected with several area providers such as caterers, florists, and bakeries and can ensure your event will be memorable and leaving your guests asking, “When is the next party?”


Great party! When are we having another one? Everyone had a great time. The table looked beautiful and festive!
