Ellie has been working with us over the past couple of years as our wedding day assistant but we are excited to announce her promotion as our Associate Planner. She is looking forward to taking on clients of her own and we know that she will do a tremendous job!  Her exuberance, organization, diligence, kind spirit and amazing style make her the perfect addition to our team!

We asked her to share a few things with all of us, and here's is what she had to say:

Personal Background

I was born and raised in Marysville by the best parents a girl could ask for. Their love for one another and us kids has really influenced my life and who I have grown to be. I am the older sister to two amazing young men who keep me smiling, light hearted and down to earth. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Public Relations from Central Washington University and minored Spanish. This is also where I met the man of my dreams. We just got married in May of 2014. We love adventuring the outdoors, traveling to new places together, and making each other laugh. I am a coffee addict, a half marathoner, a new Crossfiter, a hopeless romantic, and a sucker for a good glass of red wine.

Professional Background

I started my career working in promotional events with both the Seattle Mariners and Radio Disney. I later worked as a wedding and events coordinator for a premier waterfront wedding venue in Seattle where I coordinated over 300 events. It was here that I found my true passion. I was able to dabble in floral, food presentation, and wedding cake design and ordering. I enjoyed building a relationship with my couples and helping them bring their wedding dreams to fruition. There is just nothing like seeing the smiles of happy, newly wedded clients :)

I am more than excited to join the Maris Events team!! Not only will I get back to witnessing love stories first hand, but I will have the privilege of working for a small business doing what I am passionate about. It is truly an honor to work along side two of the best planners in the industry!
