Find Your Perfect Match!
Since starting Elevated Events a year ago, we have grown and expanded exponentially. Our one-man-show is now a team of three! We know how important it is that you and your planner's personalities mesh well and now we're able to find the perfect planner for your special occasion. Here's a little bit of info for you to get to know us better:
Jessica Adams, Owner/Planner
Jessica Adams, Owner and Planner of Elevated Events, graduated from JMU with a bachelor’s in Hospitality Management and a certification in Wedding Planning. She has extensive experience in every segment of the event industry including catering, sales/marketing, and venue sales. She started Elevated Events because she felt that events were lacking genuine hospitality.
Jessica lives with her husband, Andrew, and their “mini Noah’s ark”…2 dogs and 2 cats (and there is an active debate about 2 fish…). She confesses to an obsession with pineapples and enjoys visiting wineries and hanging out with her family. Oh, and being anywhere near the water, especially on a boat!
Megan Byrne, Planner
Megan Byrne boasts a Bachelor’s degree in Family and Child Development from Virginia Tech and a Master of Education from VCU. She has worked as a personal organizer and is currently a kindergarten teacher. Both careers explain her love of having things perfectly labeled and ready to go! Megan and Sean, her husband of eight years, enjoy time with their super-fun and feisty daughters: 6-year-old Kensi and 3-year-old Zoe. When she’s not organizing, teaching or planning, Megan loves to vacation at her favorite destination: the beach.
Molly Beggs, Planner
Molly Beggs has a unique educational background for a wedding planner! She received her Industrial Engineering degree from the University of Michigan. Her background translates into a love of events with an exceptional flow. She moved to Richmond seven years ago to pursue a career with Capital One, and has corporate event planning experience. Molly loves all things outdoors, including hiking, camping and running. She also enjoys spending time with her energetic yellow lab named Beau.
