Lisa Karcher, Owner

My journey into event planning started about 2005 while working through high school and college as an event coordinator for a local catering company. Here, I learned my true passion for helping couples in planning every step of their big day. It was only natural to then create Elegant Affairs to continue my love for celebrating love. 

Shortly after launching Elegant Affairs, my husband and I decided to also start a family…..And as the story goes, I decided to take the last few years to focus on my children. But I truly missed working with brides. So, here I am back at it and ready to take it to the next level. 

My goal is to make each and every couple feel like they have their dream wedding, whether that be a small intimate ceremony or huge, over the top wedding of the year. I absolutely love the details of every wedding and am always eager to bring my creative skills to the table to give each couple unique elements that best fit their vision. With a background in graphic design, I often create custom invitations, save the dates, wedding programs and more. I also truly enjoy crafting one of a kind decor pieces like table numbers and event signage to match each couples exact taste. I am devoted to my couples with every step of their wedding planning journey, from "yes to I do."

I look forward to meeting with you and can't wait to make your wedding dream reality!
