Eden always knew she wanted to work in the wedding industry.  At the age of five, she was handed a Miss Manners’ handbook and a tea set. The pages a bit more worn twenty years later, the book now sits amongst her collection of other etiquette and wedding reads. She grew up in a family that celebrated each holiday largely, and boldly - she was always looking forward to the next gathering, learning the ins-and-outs of a being a true hostess with each visit. Being raised in an environment that thrived in tradition and love, she now enjoys celebrating every loving moment with couples from all walks of life. 

From the time Eden was 15, she worked jobs that involved event planning – from catering and venue management to multiple internships with wedding planners. While in college at The University of South Carolina, she worked for large-scale event planners to learn the ins and outs of what all the job entailed.

After graduation, Eden took a job at an eminent rental company in Charleston, SC. While working with clients, Eden watched as many brides felt overwhelmed rather than at peace with the planning process. Knowing she had advice to give and solutions to many of these problems, Eden founded Ellis Event Design. Along with a detail-focused planning process, she uses her genuinely calm and friendly demeanor to console her clients.

She does all of this because it’s her passion, and her favorite thing to hear is that she has made a bride’s life easier.
