Founded in 2007 by radio veteran, Fresh Johnson, Elle R. Jae Events began as a hobby when one of her best friends (and Linesister), Mikela Dillon wed her high school sweetheart, Kyle. Prior to that, Fresh's event experience, stemmed from planning events on UL Lafayette's campus, as a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc.
After Fresh's first wedding, word of mouth was the tool that connected Elle R. Jae Events with many clients to come, with a portfolio that spans from Los Angeles to New York and Houston to Alabama, with lots of New Orleans lovin' in between.
In 2017, to celebrate 10 successful years in the event world, Fresh launched, "Let Them Eat Cake", a wedding podcast where she discusses trends, pro tips, and real talk about day to day planning adventures.
New to the Elle R. Jae Events brand "It's A Wedding Party", a collaborative styled shoot series. Within the last year, Fresh would often recall her early days in planning, where she knew her talent, but didn't necessarily have the complete work to show for it. She struggled with putting together styled shoots because vendors didn't know who she was. It's A Wedding Party, will establish a community between vendors and creatives to allow vendors to showcase their work and photographers and videographers will be able to capture content for their portfolios and collateral that vendors will have access to. Through this series, we will constantly introduce brands to new audiences.
