Eloisa Lara was my event coordinator as well as my florist and designer. To say she did a spectacular job would not give her justice. Eloisa went above and beyond what I could have ever asked her. Her artistic talent was shown in her elegant floral arrangements and my floral arch, which consisted of over a thousand flowers was breathtaking. She made sure to take my vision and my dreams to turn my special day into something out of a fairytale. I would recommend her to anyone wanting an unforgettable display of elegance and beauty.

Vanessa Scott, an equally talented individual, baked the most amazing treats I have ever tasted. Not only were this delicious but her display was a work of art. Some guess told me that the desert table was too beautiful to eat from.

Eloisa and Vanessa make a pair like no other. They will turn your special day into the most unforgettable event you can wish for. Thank you Eloisa and Vanessa for making my wedding wishes come to life!

I was introduced to the wedding business when I took the initiative to plan, design, coordinate and do florals for Vanessa's wedding. For the next twenty plus years I exercised my passion for wedding services through church wedding ministries and through family and friends weddings and events.

In 2015, I embarked as a sole-proprietary of a business known as "A Heart From Heaven". At the time it was established as a wedding planning, florals and bakery business. Today, “A Heart From Heaven” serves as our sister company providing both silks and fresh floral arrangements for all types of occasions. I also joined a consortium of seven planners known as "Elegant Beginnings". Due to a career change of the founder, the business was dissolved. In June of 2019, as a spin off of "Elegant Beginnings", I founded with Vanessa as Co-founder, "Elegant Beginnings Premiere Events", the journey of a mother-daughter duo I had dreamed of for years. For me, this will be a journey to leave a legacy to my family. After forty-nine years of technical and corporate jobs, I retired and turned to my real passion; the incredible wedding business I had postponed for 30 plus years.

Hello! My name is Vanessa Scott, and I am a certified Wedding and Event Planner, Consultant and Designer with over twelve years of experience. I also own a small business known as Delectable Sweets and Treats by Vanessa. When I am not busy baking delicious little treats and sweets for special events or assisting my business partner and mother, Eloisa Lara in creating beautifully designed weddings and events, you can find me at home spending time with my family and loved ones. There is nothing that I look forward to the most than sharing time with the ones I love, having fun, being a little silly and sharing in magical moments we create together. It is this same passion that drove me to the entertainment industry many years ago and now with the support of my family, I have been able to turn my passion for entertainment into a business that is rewarding and gratifying. Most importantly, I get to embark on this journey of discovery alongside my mother as we launch our mother- daughter company with one main goal in mind; to provide the best, most spectacular, breathtaking experience that you can imagine!
