How long have you been operating your business?

Emily Elizabeth Events has been planning and designing weddings and parties since 2012. What began as a part-time passion project and has grown into a full-time endeavor.

How would you describe your services?

I offer full planning and design for eight to ten weddings a year. I work very closely with my couples and it’s always a collaboration – each one a personalized and unique celebration of the two people getting married.

How would you describe your style?

My style is all understated elegance and simple beauty. I try to achieve the right balance between classic and unexpected in all of the events I produce. I appreciate sophistication with personality – elegance with a little whimsy or eclectic touches.

How would you describe your ideal client?

My ideal clients are people who enjoy the journey just as much as the destination. They’re thoughtful, sweet people who appreciate the good things in life.

What is your favorite moment on wedding day?

The dancing – seeing the couple happily enjoying the evening and each other, surrounded by all of their friends and family.

What’s your favorite day trip in Maine?

A day spent in the midcoast, with activities like the beach, shopping, art gallery meandering, window shopping, and cocktails or dinner at a local restaurant.
