I help creative and crazy-in-love couples share who they are and why they belong together with a wedding that’s full of style and meaning. Whether you want to feature a food truck that’s a throwback to your first date or a Chinese lantern ceremony that’s an ode to your culture, I collaborate with you to plan those expressive elements you need to create a wedding inspired by your love.Being a military brat, I’ve traveled the world and love getting to know new people and experiencing new adventures. After graduating with a degree in broadcast journalism (I thought I wanted to be a News Anchor), I began developing my creative chops in the advertising/marketing industry. But when I realized creating memorable events was my true love, I began planning workshops, conferences and galas for a non-profit association (don’t remind me about the time I stuffed 700 swag bags). And before taking the leap of faith to start Janel Elise Events, I earned an Event Planning Certification and also sharpened my skills working for a top wedding planner and two wedding venues in Atlanta.
I believe in…
Meaningful ceremonies with personal vows that you’ve taken your time to write.
Fun design details with a WOW moment that your guests share on Instagram.
Father daughter dances where there’s not a dry eye in the reception.
A quiet moment to yourself after the ceremony to savor the moment as newlyweds.
One last slow dance after all the guests have left the reception.
