Alison Laesser-Keck

is a creative director and event producer. Armed with a degree in counseling, ten years in hospitality, and another decade planning weddings, she is the quintessential "people person" who is enamored with the fine art of entertaining. In 2008, after working in private events in Seattle, she branched out on her own to follow a dream - and the rest, as they say, is history. She is a proud right/left brain split who was meant to be an event planner and designer, and this is her dream job. Alison is California born and raised, with strong Michigan roots, and enjoys traveling and celebrating whenever possible. 

Bryan Keck

has been in hospitality for over twenty years, working for a James Beard award winning restaurateur and chef in Seattle prior to his role with A & B. As an event director and our business manager, he's focused on the many logistics involved in making an event happen, although his passion is creating and cultivating relationships with our clients and their families. He is a proud Michigan native whose entire career has involved taking care of people. Bryan loves working with his wife (his wife wrote this).
