Event Producer and Creative Director
Alison Laesser-Keck has been producing events, both big and small, for fourteen fabulous years. Armed with a degree in counseling, ten years in hospitality, and another eleven years planning weddings, she's a quintessential "people person" and a true left brain/right brain split. In 2008, she branched out on her own to follow a dream - and the rest, as they say, is history. Alison is California born and raised, with strong Pacific Northwest and Midwest roots, and she enjoys yoga, wine, podcasts, traveling, and celebrating whenever possible.
Director of Events
Bryan Keck has been in hospitality since 1997, working for a James Beard award-winning restaurateur in Seattle prior to joining forces with Alison in 2010. As the head of operations, he oversees the many logistics involved in producing an event, although he's most passionate about the relationships we build with our clients and their families. Bryan is a proud Midwest native whose entire career has involved taking care of people. He loves hockey, the beach, the gym, politics, tacos, and working with his wife (his wife wrote this).
Arielle "Ari" Clinthorne joined the team in 2015. With a degree in Neuroscience from the University of Michigan (Go Blue!), Ari is a notorious perfectionist and lover of problem-solving and creative thinking. When she isn’t tackling wedding to-dos, she coordinates outdoor experiences for thousands of people, a position she has held for eleven years. She loves traveling, entertaining, and pouring over fashion and interior design publications and blogs. Her working knowledge of the Italian language is, how shall we put it, helpful.
