Meet the Team

“Happy girls are the prettiest.” –Audrey Hepburn

Chelsea Moring

Owner & Head Event Planner/Coordinator

Chelsea is a checklist addict, an avid do-it-yourselfer, and Illumination Events Studio's Lady Boss of five years! While she is all about getting things done, and done well, she loves nothing more than enjoying a cup of tea on her front porch, admiring her geraniums in the sunshine. This balance of order, beauty, and enjoyment is her mission for her couples and clients. There is nothing more important to her than being in the moment, because happy girls are indeed the prettiest!

 

“I like large parties, they’re so intimate. With small parties there isn’t any privacy.” – Jordan Baker, The Great Gatsby

Brittney Throckmorton

Intern and Assistant Planner

While Miss Baker has a point, Brittney loves all parties, large or small! Currently in college at Radford, where students do a different kind of partying, Brittney firmly believes that every occasion calls for theme, special menu, and an outfit. If she could be at one party for the rest of her life, it would undoubtedly be Palm Beach themed! She loves rainbow sprinkles on vanilla ice cream, and her favorite color combo is snow white and bright teal. She thinks herself like a nice glass of champagne, classic and bubbly!
