Exceeding your expectations
In a setting as beautiful as Lake Tahoe, your wedding should not only exceed your expectations, it should be personal, thoughtful, tasteful and unforgettable. At Elise Events, our goal is to wow you and your guests through unexpected details that tell your unique love story. We believe in developing a relationship with each of our clients to fully understand and execute their vision. We love unique requests, big and small, because this gives us a chance to get creative and tell your story as a couple. Every precise detail, ranging from invitation typography to floral composition, is meticulously selected in order to produce a one-of-a-kind event.
We want each of our clients to walk into their venue and think, “This is so us!”. Getting to know you as a couple helps us craft a very intentional design with every last detail selection that not only looks stunning, but also creates an experience your guests will never forget. To us, design is more than just picking out the details. It’s about creating a bespoke vision that speaks to the couple. Your wedding day should be an invitation into your relationship. We strive to create a unique and individual brand that sets the tone for your weekend celebrations. At Elise Events we accomplish this by evoking emotion through all of the senses from taste to smell and from sound to touch. We combine your vision with the natural scenery and local charm of Lake Tahoe, to create the wedding you have imagined.
We pride ourselves on years of developing a little black book of vendors and estates not accessible to the public, specializing in luxury weddings and private estate events. Principle Designer and Owner Danielle Tolleson’s attention to detail and unique design aesthetic has landed Elise Events in top wedding publications such as: Flutter Magazine, Style Me Pretty, 100 Layer Cake, Carats & Cake and Black Sheep Bride. Elise Events was recognized as producing one of Style Me Pretty’s Most Beautiful Weddings of 2016.

“Since I was a young girl my world has been a fascination with all creative outlets in life. I could spend an entire day looking at linen fabrics, textures and color swatches. My world is at its brightest when I am designing, implementing, executing and building innovative and new possibilities. For me, planning an event is about creating. It is about creating something unforgettable; generating a lasting experience, environment and emotion. It is the build of anticipation for something magnificent and most memorable. Planning is about listening and understanding a client’s visions and dreams, turning the ordinary into the extraordinary. It is a joy and privilege to be invited into my client’s lives and to bring them that unforgettable day and memory that will last a lifetime.”
