~ Corporate & Social Event Marketing Specialist~
Shannon’s passion for event planning began in the hospitality industry with a love for amazing food, fine wine and providing the ultimate wedding planning experience. She understands that planning a wedding requires a caring and highly collaborative partner who supports the emotional and financial investment being made by her client. Looking to grow professionally and strategically, Shannon changed her event focus to work as a planner in the financial and insurance industries. Her skills include: luxury destination management, contract negotiations, leadership and live event production for board of director’s meetings, incentive programs, and executive conferences. She does not believe in the word “No” and prefers to find creative solutions in overcoming perceived obstacles.

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!
