We're Elevate

What started as a side hustle for two creative, driven sisters has now become one of the Midwest’s premier event planning and design firms. At Elevate, we find pure, unbridled joy in celebrating all aspects of life - big moments, small gatherings and anything in between.

Real Wedding: Marissa & Matt

Marissa and Matt’s wedding took place last June, but it is a special one in our hearts since it was Elevate’s first wedding, before we were officially Elevate! We loved the simplicity of this event and how the beautiful nature reserve and other natural elements truly took center stage. Also – can we talk about how beautiful Jewish ceremonies are for a second?! The level of detail and the layers of tradition intertwined in the Rabbi’s ceremony were absolutely breathtaking. Plus – the dancing at the end of the night was a blast. We can’t wait for the next one!
