The seeds of creativity were rooted in me long before I ever knew I wanted to start this company. As a little girl, I watched my mother, an interior designer, create spaces filled with intention and beauty. I watched her effortlessly turn houses into homes, and I saw the fulfillment that using her creativity gave her. Like any little girl, I wanted to be just like my mother.
In a creative and artistic family, I was exposed to many forms of beauty. I enjoyed painting, sketching, arranging flowers, planning parties, and anything that allowed me to explore the creative side of myself. I did not realize it then, but looking back I can see just how these casual creative pursuits prepared me for my career. I learned to look at the world around me in a very visual way. I learned to watch and understand how creative influence impacted other people. I learned how much art matters.
I continued to develop as many creative skills as I could through high school and college, and considered working in design, fashion, and PR. I knew I wanted a career that allowed me to think on my feet in a fast-paced world. I loved the rush. But I also knew I wanted to be able to sit back and create. My creativity was a driving force within me and I knew that a purely analytical career would leave me stifled.
In a series of events that can only be described as serendipitous, I took a job working in New York City for an event planning, design, and production firm. It took me only minutes to realize that this industry and career was everything I had been looking for. It was the perfect combination of fast paced reality and pure creativity. My training in this job is something I will forever be grateful for. It was this start that set me on the path to create something on my own and to develop a life and career focused around making things beautiful.
Perusing my dream, I went out on a limb and started Rachael Ellen Events. I was nervous, but I knew that I had a unique point of view and something important to offer the industry. Since then, we have created, expanded, adjusted and grown as a company. During this process, I met and married the love of my life, Cameron, he is truly my better half and his direction over the business side of our company allows me to do what I do best—create.
As the years have passed, our company has grown into something we are truly proud of. We feel fortunate every day to plan and produce events across the world, together. We are passionate about where we are headed and know that the best is yet to come.
