The Heart of Our Work

There’s wedding planning that can feel stressful, overwhelming or over-the-top. And then there’s wedding planning that chooses a more easeful route – one that follows your pace, whether you’re designing an intimate boutique wedding or a large-scale event . At Brannan Events & Design, we do things a little differently – prioritizing comfort over stress, and mindfulness over wastefulness, while delivering a fun, enchanting day that’s so perfectly you. We care just as much about elevated design as we do making sure the flowers are sourced locally and the staff are being paid fair wages. We want to throw a once-in-a-lifetime celebration for you while being mindful of the impact we’re making on the planet. It’s our hope you’ll join us in these efforts because together, we’ll create the most amazing celebration that goes beyond your wildest dreams.

“Elise is such a down to earth and calming presence that any bride needs by her side.

Elise was our planner for our Napa wedding in September of 2022. Her and her team are absolutely amazing. Elise is such a down to earth and calming presence that any bride needs by her side. She helped us do a full buildout at a home in Calistoga, CA and made sure we had all the design elements in place as well as all of the logistical elements no bride wants to hear about (generators, kitchen buildout, shuttle capabilities, etc). She helped us allocate all of our vendors and kept in constant communication with them to make sure the day of, was perfection. The entire day was magic. We wouldn’t have been able to have our wedding without her and I couldn’t recommend her enough!

our Six-Step Signature Process

Making events mindful & memorable since 2015

Hello! My name is Elise (she/her) and I founded Brannan Events & Design in 2015 with a mission to help create beautiful, unique and memorable celebrations that directly reflect your vision and personality.

As an environmental and social justice advocate, I believe it’s part of my responsibility as an event professional to do everything I can to be conscious, inclusive, and sustainable when it comes to producing an event. I want you to enjoy your celebration that’s as beautiful and personal as it is caring and planet-friendly. At Brannan Events & Design, we believe that every wedding can be as unique and special as it is inclusive and conscious of the world around us.

“If I could suggest only making one investment for your event it would be to hire Elise

I cannot begin to say enough about Elise. To say we couldn’t have done it without Elise seems somewhat cliché but is nothing short of the truth. We were blessed to contract with Elise for my daughter’s wedding in Yosemite. We were completely at ease the moment we met with Elise. We knew she would be the one we could lean on and she would take care of every detail which would enable us to enjoy the wedding planning process and create a spectacular day. Elise is not only a joy to work with, she is extremely professional, very organized, and has a natural creative talent. Elise listened and worked with the bride’s vision and because of Elise’s creative ideas we implemented it made for a perfect day. Never once did I worry that something wouldn’t get done as I knew Elise was on it. If I could suggest only making one investment for your event it would be to hire Elise at Brannan Events!

A's To Your Q's

Absolutely! While the Brannan Events team is based in San Francisco’s Bay Area, we’ve been grateful to travel the globe to help bring our client’s dreams to life!
Because we only take on a limited number of events each year, we focus our energy on working with clients in a Full Planning capacity.
Of course, that’s what we’re here for! Whether you’re planning a rehearsal dinner, a farewell brunch, or a full week of wedding activities, we’ll take care of all of the details so you can sit back and relax.

All of our Full Planning packages include a custom and comprehensive design. We also take on a limited number of interior design projects each year.

“My wife and I agree-- the best decision we made about our wedding (after choosing each other) was working with Elise.

Despite all the stresses weddings can bring, we felt assured that Elise (and Michael) were on top of things. Things we appreciated about her: -She took time to understand our vision on both a macro and micro level -Took time to know our families and what they valued in a ceremony -Incredibly creative and thoughtful about all elements of design -So accommodating to meeting/talking around our schedule I am very biased, but I think we had the best wedding ever. We thank Elise for it 🙂
