Ellen’s Story

Ellen brings a true passion and caring attitude to her work that builds trust, creates long lasting relationships and, most importantly, ensures satisfied, happy clients. A Nashville native, she has been a sought-after consultant in the event planning space for more that twenty years.

It’s her high level of attention to detail, meticulous planning, and genuine care that separates Ellen from everyone else. 

-A. Sudarshan, private event

Before creating Ellen Hollis Events, an events consulting business, Ellen worked with industry leading companies in San Francisco, Dallas and Nashville. Influenced by those early days of working with some of the nation’s top event planners, Ellen is now one of the most highly regarded event planners in the Nashville area.

Ellen has been on staff or planned events for well-known Nashville organizations such as Vanderbilt University, the Nashville Symphony, Emids, Guy Brown, Cheekwood Estate & Gardens and Oz Arts Nashville.

Weddings are an EHE specialty. By getting to know each client personally, Ellen designs an event that truly reflects the style and personality of each couple. Understanding the complexity and stress of wedding planning, she also takes care to ensure the day goes perfectly so the bride and groom can relax and have fun.

“She is professional, prompt, and truly invested in her clients. Ellen knows everything there is to know about how to pull off a flawless event. She turned my scattered wedding visions into a beautiful reality, and I am so grateful for her guidance!”

-A. Carpenter, Bride

While there are many event planners in Nashville, nothing sets Ellen Hollis Events apart quite like her approach to client relationships. Gracious, passionate and supportive are words often used by Ellen’s clients.

Her upbeat, positive energy radiates when on-site that makes for a fun working environment that is also very well organized!  She has great relationships with her clients. I would recommend Ellen hands down – for weddings, corporate and non-profit events – she can handle them all with grace and a smile!
