Calluna Community | Cocktails with Elite Entertainment
Friday, May 10
Here at Calluna we are always looking for new ways to highlight and honor some of the amazing creative partners we get to work with. We feel incredibly fortunate to work with some seriously talented vendors in the industry, and we want to show them off to you in our new Calluna Community Series! We will sit down with some of the fabulous vendors of Colorado and get to know about them, their business and what life is like behind the scenes. Stay tuned for more!
I am the Administrator of Elite Entertainment, so I am the first person a client speaks to when they call or come in. I delegate tasks and clients to the rest of my team, keep our company culture positive, speak to potential clients, and generally help the office atmosphere stay positive and moving forward. As a company, we provide amazing DJ/MC services, Photo Booths, and lighting and decor to our clients for their special day or any event they want to make epic.
What is your idea of a dream project?
Someone who has a cool venue and wants it all! DJ to flow the evening and rock the party, photo booth to entertain the guests and capture the mood of the night, lighting that changes the entire atmosphere of a venue to create the exact vision of our clients, and make it a day they will always remember!
What has been your favorite wedding that you have worked, or attended?
We transformed the bridge at Coohills, used over a hundred Edison drops and several chandeliers to create a really awesome venue out of the bridge! We also did another event there, where we made the bridge into a tent with draped fabric and market lights. It was amazing!
What does your morning routine look like?
I get to the office, say hello to the colleagues who beat me in, make coffee for the office, and input new contacts into the system. Then start on everything else!
What are some of your favorite trends that you are seeing?
I love our geometric Edison drop cages that people utilize over a large table. It really adds an amazing touch to the decor. We also really like that copper is becoming popular, smaller arches that can be bedazzled in lighting or greens that goes over a sweetheart table.
What advice would you give to a younger you?
The entertainment industry is a crazy place, but it’s so much fun. Get into it now and learn even more skills!
What makes you excited to go to work in the morning?
I work with really great people. There is usually a really positive energy in our office, and we all want to make people’s dreams come true. All the way to behind the scenes production crew that sets up our lighting and decor. They work so hard and are all so nice and professional and do a wonderful job.
What is your favorite cocktail, or what are you drinking tonight?
I am a dirty martini type of girl if I’m going to drink a cocktail!
