Let's Get to Know Each Other

Owner, Founder, and Lead Planner

Based on Long Island, New York

Passionate about crafting a romantic experience for your wedding day

It’s all about the stories - the ones that got you here, and the ones that you’ll be telling and retelling forever after. 

With years of hands-on experience, my comprehensive approach to every event serves to uphold my standard for perfection and bring your vision to life. My talent is the layering of elevated design elements and fine details - I am your architect, and together we will build the event of your dreams - but my passion is people. My driving force is your joy and satisfaction, with the goal of surpassing your expectations, and my high-touch approach is founded on the principle that everyone’s experience matters, from each vendor to every guest.

Bringing Your Vision to Life

 This alone is a testament to the value I place on relationships.

Rita Ellis Events has grown over the past couple years primarily through word of mouth. I always aim to empower a team of creative talent - including many of the highest-rated vendors on the North and South Fork - to do what they do best in service of your vision. My days are often filled with collaborations between floral designers, cake bakers, entertainment companies and caterers, so that all members of your team will enjoy working with each other and with you. 

I am invested in you and your story, so we will begin at the beginning as I get to know all about you and what you love. As we continue to work together creating our team of vendors, establishing color palettes and discovering your dream design, I will continue to ensure that each event detail is curated to your love story. Every person and every piece of the puzzle matters to me - down to the name of your dog and the dietary requirements of your favorite cousin. It’s my job to ensure that on the day of your event, your plate is full of delicious food and nothing else.

 I know that big moments consist of many smaller ones - I take care of everything so that you can live in each and every one of them.
