We can’t wait for you to get to know her this season and we’re so proud to welcome her aboard Team Calluna. Join us for some rapid fire questions below and join us in welcoming her to this amazing industry!
Elyssa Hoffman is a recent University of Colorado Boulder graduate who loves all of the nitty-gritty details that go into making an event special! With a Bachelor’s degree in Strategic Communication, Elyssa became passionate for design and the event planning process. Elyssa grew up outside of Boston and is now spending time with her family who moved to the Bay Area in California four years ago. Elyssa’s favorite part of the wedding day is watching the Groom’s reaction when he sees his Bride for the first time. Her inspiration for this special moment – Katherine Higel and James Marsden’s characters in the movie 27 Dresses!
