Hi, I'm Elise!

Elise Scheeren 

With a drive for design and detail, Elise creates a personalized experience that makes the process custom and complete.

After being raised right outside of Charlottesville, Virginia and earning a degree in Hospitality Management from James Madison, Elise quickly put together her ideal career - and that's when Laurel Elise Events was born.

In her spare time she loves spending time with her fiancé, Dillon,  taking her two pugs on walks and finding the best mojito around town.

Behind the Clipboard

I'm Elise, wedding and event designer living on the east coast. This whole dream started back in 2014, I felt a spark when I started at a local winery and cultivated that into an award winning event company that now services Virginia and all over the East Coast. I am a lover of my fiancé, Dillon, our pugs and anything that involved me walking around with a vanilla latte in my hand.

Upon completing her bachelors degree at George Mason University in Tourism and Events Management, Grace returned to the Charlottesville area, where she has served as an event manager at some of Virginia’s top venues, including Pippin Hill and Veritas Winery, working on more than 200 weddings in the central Virginia region over the past 10 years. 

After having the sweetest baby boy, Leo, in June 2019, Grace decided to make the switch from working in the corporate world back to weddings - allowing her to spend more time with her babies (Leo + the dogs!) Grace resides in the beautiful Keswick, Virginia amongst some of our favorite venues.
