About Rachel

A traditional Italian upbringing led Rachel to her love for food, wine, and large gatherings. She knew from an early age that event planning would be her calling, and has been working her way through the industry since graduating from the University of Georgia in 2008.

After a summer spent learning while working with Italian wedding planners at various magnificent locations around Italy, Rachel realized that her calling would now be international and she expanded the scope of Elevents to serve the globe.

Having taken part in the execution of over 500 events spanning from Charleston, South Carolina to Florence, Italy, she developed a true understanding of what it takes to throw a spectacular event. Rachel wants to make each wedding a signature event, from unique worldly designs to fabulous food.

She currently resides in Charleston, South Carolina with her husband Jason, and their corgi Lady.
