Alison Laesser-Keck

is a creative director and event designer. Armed with a degree in counseling, 10 years in the fine spirits industry, and another decade planning weddings, she is the quintessential people person who is obsessed with the art of the event. In 2008, after working with venues in Seattle, she branched out on her own to follow a dream - and the rest, as they say, is history. She is California born and raised, with strong Michigan roots, and enjoys traveling and celebrating whenever possible.
