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 Sammons’ attention to detail and unique design aesthetic has landed Elise Events in top wedding publications such as: 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.


I knew that we would need a wedding planner to help us with our private estate wedding in Tahoe, but I never imagined we would be so blessed as to find someone like Danielle from Elise Events!

We hired Elise Events for the Full Service planning and Design package, and I can’t imagine having done it any other way. From beginning to end, Danielle was instrumental in making our wedding so special and the best day of our lives. Not only did she expertly handle the coordination of everything, but we really trusted her suggestions, eye for detail, and creative aesthetic. I knew I wanted a rustic and organic look, and Danielle was able to really bring that to life and added so many great touches.

Beyond all of that, what makes Danielle so special is how much she cares about her clients. My mom, husband, and I had so many phone calls with her throughout the process and she was always organized, patient, and totally there for us. Her passion and dedication to our wedding was incredible, and we could not have asked for a better experience.

I would absolutely recommend Elise Events to anyone!

Having Danielle by our side while we planned our wedding was the best decision we made. Her attention to detail and decisiveness were exactly what we needed while planning one of the best days of our lives. She has a great eye and sense of style and we never doubted any advice or decisions she made. The day of was carefree and seamless because we knew she was there and we were left to enjoy the day stress free! Danielle should be the first vendor you choose for your wedding! Everything else will fall into place easily afterward. We remain in close contact and have developed a great friendship with Danielle! Not only is she amazing at her job, but she is a kind and wonderful person!

Hiring Elise Events was the best decision we made while planning our destination wedding! Living in Dallas, and working with several vendors in Lake Tahoe could have been a daunting task. But thanks to Danielle’s professionalism, relationships, and eye for detail… the planning process was seamless and enjoyable. Danielle has the unique quality of guiding your vision and dream into a reality. She has great creative insight and can really take a bride’s vision to the next level while staying on budget. Our wedding was more beautiful than I ever could have hoped. I attribute that to Danielle and her team of handpicked vendors. Each as top notch as herself. If you’re looking for someone who is warm, caring, passionate, creative and organized… then Danielle is your girl. She was worth every penny and absolutely the reason our destination wedding and weekend was a success.

My daughter’s wedding was so perfect, I still get a warm rush just thinking about it. My daughter and I interviewed several wedding planners who all seemed very capable, but there was something special about Danielle. Since the wedding was on the West Coast but almost everyone was coming from the East Coast, we wanted to make a weekend of it and hoped for that special touch. Danielle seemed as excited as we were about planning this complex weekend. We not only wanted the events to feel as seamless as possible for our daughter and son-in-law to be, but also wanted everyone to feel welcome, comfortable and included in the celebration; to end the weekend feeling that it was one of the best times they had ever had. My family is in the luxury hotel business, so attention to detail has always been extremely important to us. Danielle had the same priorities. Most importantly, she spent so much time with us that she was able to perfectly capture our family’s vision of the wedding celebration we wanted. Her suggestions for caterer, florist and photographer and her own added creative touches, made the weekend more perfect than we could have imagined. Because Danielle was so meticulous about every detail, on the day of the wedding she had everything under control so that we were all able to relax and enjoy our own party. She made sure the bridal party was well attended to prior to the service, so that they were all completely relaxed and upbeat. I would work again with Danielle in a heartbeat, and that is not a recommendation I give lightly. May your event be as happy as ours was!
