Elizabeth Neupauer
~Event Planner~

Elizabeth is our youngest member of the team!  LOVE the fresh ideas and energy!

Elizabeth went to school for Interior Design in Kansas where she grew up.  She is not afraid to mix and match and make bold choices in order for any event to be that much more special. While in school, Elizabeth found her love for branding and firmly believes that events are more about the experience. 

These experiences should be consistent to every guest from the first invitation to the actual event. Her unique event branding can make this happen.

She enjoys being able to take stress off the clients so they can enjoy the process and event. Her goal is to help make any event seamless, consistent and fun!
