I worked on the business part time alongside my full time job, and by 2018 we went full time. Growing the business has been nothing short of a dream, and an absolute privilege. I work with amazing clients, and some of the most talented wedding and event professionals around. I truly love what I do, and I look forward to meeting you!

I’ve been in the catering and event planning industry since 2012 working for various corporate companies and individuals. After being in that world for a little over 6 years I realized the passion I have for producing beautiful events on a smaller scale. I love getting to know my clients on a personal level so I can better serve them as their planner. In 2016 I took the leap and started Events By Kristina Elyse.

Kristina and her group of talented ladies put together the MOST BEAUTIFUL WEDDING EVER! All of our friends and family were blown away at how beautiful everything looked and what a great job Kristina did! It was truly a wedding that dreams are made of. "

Kristina along with her amazing team were the best gift we could have ever given ourselves.

Trust me, it will be the best decision you will make! From our first phone call she was so sweet, invested and you could tell she had a passion for everything weddings! Planning a wedding during covid came with its own extra obstacles but Kristina was there every step of the way ensuring that all our questions were being answered and reassuring us.  Even our family and friends loved her and couldn’t stop raving about her at our wedding walkthrough! The day of the wedding my family and I were able to relax and enjoy the moment knowing that Kristina had everything under control. Everything from the biggest detail to the smallest was spectacular! My husband and I are forever thankful to Kristina and her team for giving us our dream wedding that we will cherish and remember forever!

Having Kristina by our side allowed us to focus on the fun and exciting part of wedding planning. She was detailed and organized that allowed us to feel like we were in good hands and didn’t have to stress about the little crucial details of the wedding. She kept us on track with what needed to be done and brought up things that we hadn’t even thought about. Kristina never made us feel like we were reaching out to her too much and was open to any form of communication. This was especially important with our busy lifestyles. If I came across a barrier in any of my planning, she listened and came up with quick solutions. We feel she really went above and beyond to ensure our experience with our wedding planning was seamless and a priority.

We’re forever grateful for Kristina and her incredible service.

We met for a consultation and she was so kind and warm, I felt like I had known her for a lifetime. I thought I would hire her just for the design part, until she brought up other to-do's throughout the wedding planning process that I hadn't thought of. So my husband and I decided to choose the full service package and thank GOSH we did.  We were so incredibly happy that we had Kristina in our corner and had hired her before the world turned. She knew exactly what to do, almost as if this wasn't her first time dealing with a worldwide pandemic! I always say, if it wasn't for Kristina, we wouldn't have had such a fun and stress-free wedding. I could go on and on but I truly can't recommend her enough and will definitely use her in the future for events!

Kristina is warm, positive and calm in all situations, yet takes charge when needed and will definitely make sure the bride and groom's wishes come FIRST.
