Pinkboxe Wedding & Events specializes in all aspects of planning and production, offers extensive experience, innovation and a focus on quality; because creating exceptional weddings and events is what they love to do! Their goal is for you to relax and savor every perfect moment of your big day. Elise Kolle, the fab founder of PINKBOXE, will be bringing our April DC Vendor Social to life!
We have been orchestrating events for over a decade, however we branched out on our own July 2015, and went live February 29th 2016
A corporate client Elise worked with on an “Around-the-World” themed ” client appreciation event called her, “a little idea box.” Elise toyed with many names and even purchased a few namesake URLs that are currently vacant, haha! It was really one of those moments when she woke up in the middle of the night and thought, why not merge her favorite color with “little idea box?” Boom, “PINKBOXE” was born! The “e” on the end is just for a little fun.
Elise has been in the hospitality industry since 2000, working for major brands selling unique venue spaces and coordinating amazing corporate and social events. She always had a desire to branch out on her own to create magical moments “her way”. There came a point when a few long time vendor partners encouraged her to take the leap into business ownership as an independent planner. It was a scary thought initially since there is an inherent risk in business ownership; however, thanks to the experience Elise gained in the industry over 15 years, she made a seamless transition into PINKBOXE and has never looked back.
It is hard to pick a favorite part because we are those nutty people who genuinely love what we do! However, the people we get to work with, both our wonderful clients and our network of truly talented vendors, make this work so much more than a job. Many vendors we work with feel like family. Also, after months and months of working closely together, after all is said and done, our clients feel like family too! Partnering with our clients to learn all about them; their style, their preferences and their needs and then getting to be super creative in bringing their whole vision to life is extremely rewarding. Seeing our clients’ faces light up when they walk into the party of their dreams…gets us every time!
The most memorable was working with our first PINKBOXE couple. Their wedding was EPIC. You know it’s an amazing event when you find yourself wanting to join in the celebration and dance the night way with the guests. No detail was left untouched, FUN was the theme and everyone from the guests to the service staff felt the “magic” in the air. Fluffing the bride’s dress before her grand entrance to the ceremony, was a super emotional and joyous moment not only because she was so darn stunning but also because it was clear that starting PINKBOXE was the greatest decision. This business is truly special. We still think about that wedding and use them as a mental “template” for the perfect wedding day.
We pride ourselves on our creativity, our ability to think outside the box with event design and our knack for bringing a touch of whimsy and unexpected décor details to our events. So, we absolutely love when our clients are open to incorporating playful and whimsical elements into their special day! Whether we are planning an intimate elopement with 10 guests or a 400 person lavish, black-tie affair, we customize and personalize our events. The ultimate goal is for our events to feel authentic for our clients and their guests, and for everyone to have a blast and a memorable experience.
