I am Alyssa. I am a wife, a mother, and the owner and dreamer behind Elle and James Co. In my personal life, you can usually find me spending time with my family and chasing around my baby girl, Amelia. I am inspired by things that make the every day life seem not so ordinary. I am a Seattle native and love being cozy inside on a rainy day with a cup of coffee and a nice warm blanket! Lets be honest, I also spend a lot of my free time looking at pretty pictures of beautiful florals and color palettes and finding inspiration for upcoming weddings and styled shoots; even in my free time, I am so passionate about what I do! I love love, creating, dreaming, and special moments with those most important to me.
Planning and creating beautiful events is what makes me come alive and helping you tell your love story would be such an honor. I truly believe that your wedding day should be one of the most magical days of your entire life. A day you will remember forever. A day you spend months (or even years) preparing for. As your planner and designer, I want to create a wedding that you and your guests not only attend, but experience from beginning to end.
When you book with Elle and James Co., you are not just booking someone to keep track of vendors and check things off of a list. I prefer to learn about my couples, to get to know you as people, and also as a couple. I want to make your wedding vision come to life, and create a beautiful event from start to finish; I also want to incorporate details and elements into your special day that have meaning and sentiment. Things that tell your love story, that remind you of special moments that you’ve shared and incorporate things that will have meaning for you both for years to come.
Standing by your side through your planning process, being your guide, advocate, and friend is what makes this process so much fun for me. Allowing you to be worry free and to truly experience your wedding day and live in those magic moments is what we are all about!
I would love to connect, and I can’t wait to meet you!
