Owner | Senior Event & Travel Planner | Designer
Erica Christine, a Certified Wedding & Event Planner (CWEP), the Owner and Senior. Event Planner at Elite Eventz, LLC., is a creative visionary to no end. Attention to detail, fabulous organization skills, impeccable taste, and a hands-on approach is the formula she uses to continuously create memorable events that last a lifetime.
Erica has an MBA with a concentration on Entrepreneurship from the Jesse H. Jones School of Business at Texas Southern University, however holds her undergraduate alma mater Prairie View A&M University near and dear to her heart.
She began her career when she turned her passion into a business in 2009 when opening the doors of the now award-winning luxury event planning firm which is nestled in the Heights area of Houston, Texas. Since then, she has taught a wedding planner’s certification program at a local community college and has been featured in several local and national publications and platforms.
She is well versed in various areas of the event planning industry such as event design, destination, multicultural and Western Weddings, lavishly luxury events, large scale social & celebrity events as well as corporate conferences and galas all the while building powerful and trusted relationships with a variety of professional vendors within the Houston events industry and beyond. Her clients include entrepreneurs, socialites, corporate executives, politicians, government affiliate organizations, mega churches, international brands and corporations, and professional athletes.
Upon her 10th year in business she had decided to expand the scoop of her work by adding an Event Planner's Course, Interior Design and Travel Planning components to Elite Collective portfolio. For years she's turned blank canvas' into works of art and plans to do the same in the interior design world. She's added Travel to the equation from pure passion. Destination weddings have increased in the past few years and she decided to not limit her expertise of "EXPERIENCE" travel planning (versus becoming a traditional travel agent) to weddings but open them for others.
In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, shopping, singing, dancing, cooking, and hanging out with friends and family.
“Planning eventz must always be about the people, so let’s deliver and aim to exceed their expectations!" -Erica Christine
Stephanie D. Jenkins
I like to refer to myself as a “Jack of all trades” professional Lead Associate Planner/Licensed Bartender. Experience in both fields allows me to assist my team in a very dynamic way. I absolutely LOVE event planning/bartending, ensuring no detail has been overlooked. Meeting the clients’ every need is my TOP priority, and seeing their vision come to life is most exhilarating.
While not working events or serving up signature drinks I enjoy cooking, singing along to my favorite melodies, and spending time with my family.
