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.

A Memorial Wedding Weekend, to be Certain

There are so many reasons why Jenny and Kyle’s day will go down as one of our more memorable wedding weekends… but a last minute pivot in both date AND venue might be our most favorite.

You see, Wisconsin weather tends to keep us all on our toes, and the entire week before their celebration was no exception. With devastating storms only DAYS prior to their wedding weekend, topped off with a terrible forecast (and one absolutely GORGEOUS day sandwiched in between), we worked with J&K to make a pretty serious edit in the plans, and allow them to get married at their originally planned Welcome Party. We’d say it worked out, wouldn’t you?!

Congratulations, J&K – it was a glorious weekend that we won’t soon forget. Thank you for having us play a part.
