I love bringing people together. And I believe relationships - family, partners, friends, pets, co-workers, acquaintances- are the icing on the cake to this one, extraordinary life. I have nearly a decade of experience helping create galas, award shows, fundraising events, weddings, and corporate conferences, and I feel very fortunate that I have formed a career doing what I love most.
My design style stems from years of travel throughout North America, Europe, and Asia which has fostered a passion for incorporating local cultures, textiles, and organics in my designs. I am inspired by natural landscapes, historic architecture, traditional fabrics, local farmers and produce, human interactions, contagious smiles, the simple joy of gelato on a sunny afternoon, and mostly, my client's stories, passions, and goals. I aim to interweave their vision with my event expertise to produce memorable celebrations which exceed expectations and are within budget.
Ultimately, I launched Ellamae Productions to create a company which celebrates community, stories, and the goodness in humanity.
