The Elle Ellinghaus Designs team is ah-MAZING. Jillian was an absolute joy to work with. My original wedding in Georgia was cancelled due to hurricane Irma and my husband and I were left trying to pick up the pieces. After making the decision to move the wedding to a future date, we moved the venue north closer to home and we found Jillian and the Elle Ellinghaus Design team. Of all the planners we contacted, she was prompt in her response, was there with a hanky to let me get it all out, and was ready to start planning! Jillian is prompt in her responses, so thoughtful in the details, and organized beyond anyone I’ve ever met. I knew with the wedding in her hands, it wouldn’t be anything short of amazing. She was there for numerous vendor meetings (venue walk through, linens, catering), she got in touch immediately whenever anything needed to be changed, and provided assistance in décor, DIY and purchases. She helped us choose the best vendors and it was worth it. Everyone at the wedding had an amazing time and complimented on the décor, music, and details. On the day of, Jillian and Chelsea arrived to help with anything we needed, and brought a suitcase full of supplies. She made sure everything was in place and everyone was relaxed before the big day. I couldn’t have planned something as amazing as our wedding was without her. If you do anything for your wedding, hire Jillian and the Elle Ellinghaus Design team!

Elle Ellinghaus of EED is a bride’s dream come true. Not only because she has such a sunny, cheerful personality that puts the bride AND her mother at total ease but also because she truly loves what she does and her whole being is dedicated to making the bride’s vision a reality - and doing so in style. Elle has an amazing list of vendors with whom she has worked so that the bride has a broad range of possibilities to select a videographer, photographer, band, DJ, etc. who will fulfill her wishes and she can do so with complete confidence. Elle’s can-do attitude about everything made us feel that if there was a problem all we had to do is turn to her for a solution. Her organization and attention to every detail ( just envision a twenty page master timeline for the day of the wedding) you can imagine made us totally comfortable that nothing would be missed - and so it was. On the day of the wedding everything went seamlessly and the bride sailed through her day on a cloud of happiness. You can’t do better than getting Elle to be your wedding planner and the bonus is that she will also become your friend.

I have been dreaming of my wedding ever since I was a little girl. Over the past 20+ years I had several visions and revisions of my wedding so that when I finally got engaged to the man of my dreams, I had no idea where to begin in the planning. That compounded with my resident physician schedule which left me with somewhere between 4-6 days off a month left me overwhelmed with daunting process of planning a wedding. Enter Elle: the miracle worker, dream maker, stress reliever, fairy god sister of weddings. She broke the process of planning the wedding into little pieces that were easy to complete and always left me wanting to know what was next! Over the past year, she created the most ethereal, stunning, breathe taking wedding that was far better than anything I could have dreamed of. She was there whenever I needed her and knew expertly how to defuse any stress or panic that I managed to bring upon myself. She was able to find me engraved mallets overnight after my Etsy order was ruined and tirelessly searched for a henna artist for our after party which ended up being everyone's favorite activity. She made me always feel like a priority and that I was the only bride she was planning a wedding for this year although I know full well that is not the case. I felt I always had her undivided attention and she was always coming up with new and creative ideas every time we talked that made me more and more excited for the wedding. After 13 months of planning, the wedding was even more spectacular than we could have imagined. Elle outdid herself yet again. Two weeks later, I miss the emails, the laughing, the chatting but most of all, I miss my beautiful friend Elle and am looking forward to the next event I can plan with her. I can not say enough about Elle and her team of fabulous ladies at Elle Ellinghaus Designs and would recommend them 1000x over.
