Our Mission

Our mission at Essential Events is simple- we were founded on the principle that nothing comes before the vision of our clients. As a team, we believe in turning dreams into a reality. We combine expertise in not only event planning but also customer service, which we believe are both crucial components to bringing your vision to light. We are here to create your vision using our resources, creativity, and innovative ideas in a way that is as seamless as possible.


Our Founder

Emelie Harris founded Essential Events to bring client-centered private event and wedding coordination to Nashville, TN. The Belmont University alumna majored in communications and public relations during undergrad, where she fell in love with event coordination. Combined with her passion for serving people, creating irreplaceable experiences and all things love, Harris started Essential Events in the spring of her senior year. What started as a one-woman operation, has grown to a full-service private event and wedding coordination firm. Harris offers dedicated and intentional service to her clients as the Executive Coordinator, bringing to life their wedding dreams. Her vision is engrained in Essential Events' mission and our commitment to providing an experience unavailable anywhere else.
