I'm Olivia

your partner in planning

I grew up hearing from friends and family about how fun my parents' wedding was. This grand event; real party-of-the-century type stuff. That’s where my appreciation for events started.

I know how important the actual event is, but I also never want to neglect the planning process. While planning won’t be quite as fun as the big day, I’m determined to make you feel supported, heard, and surrounded by good people from the second you start planning until you ride off into the sunset. A wedding is a celebration! I’m here to ensure you don’t get so bogged down in the planning that you forget that. I’ll take care of the details; you two can focus on enjoying yourselves!

I'm a Louisville native and have so enjoyed cultivating my business in this wonderful city I call home! I graduated from Centre College in 2019 and worked in the Beshear administration before launching OEE in 2021.

When I'm not event planning, I enjoy cooking and baking, listening to podcasts, and traveling. I'm a huge dog lover and volunteer for the Kentucky Humane Society. I can't wait to plan your most special day together!

Veronica Roessler

Associate planner

I was born in Mexico but grew up in Louisville and have always loved planning and organizing! My experience with events began 10 years ago when I started helping organize Quinceañeras. I graduated from Indiana University in 2020 with a BA in Secondary Education and I am currently a high school Social Studies teacher in JCPS. While teaching I quickly realized that I missed the fast-paced and organizational haven that is event planning and began helping with proms and working as a wedding assistant for Olivia. I am so excited to join the team as an associate planner!

At times when I am not at school or working on events, I love spending time with my husband and fur baby! I am also constantly seeking out new trends and ideas to ensure that each event is fresh, exciting, and unforgettable. Whether you're planning an intimate gathering or a large-scale event, I am here to help you create an event that exceeds your expectations!

Hannah Weinstein

Associate planner

Originally from Rhode Island, I have now called Kentucky home for the past 9 years. Graduating from Centre College in 2018, I am a strategist by trade for a company called LPL Financial. While I appreciate and value my day job, I always look to add a little bit of creative flair to my life. 

As a creative-experience-seeking and self-proclaimed longtime admirer of Olivia, I jumped on the opportunity to work with her. She has been instrumental in helping me plan my own wedding - and I’m ecstatic to partner with you to help plan yours.

PS: I love all weddings - with a special place in my heart for those that are unique or nontraditional. 

Riley Head

Associate planner

I grew up in Louisville but have called Cincinnati home for the past 6 years. I moved to Cincinnati to attend Xavier University where I graduated with dual degrees in Philosophy, Politics & the Public and Gender and Diversity studies. I have always loved planning events, from themed birthday parties to end of the year galas for college clubs!

I love helping couples plan their special day and helping to ease some of the mental load of planning everything! My passion with wedding planning is helping the couple plan a day that feels special and unique to them; I want to help you build a wedding that speaks to your own love story!

During the day I work at Spruce Nail Shop and love dreaming up new and cutie nail art. I have two cats that I love more than life. I enjoy traveling and a good gin & tonic. I am honored to work with Olivia and every single one of our wonderful couples!

I grew up in Louisville and graduated from Centre College with a BA in English in 2020. Since then, I've worked as an English teacher at St. Raphael.

Olivia and I went to college together and I could not be more excited to be part of the Olivia Elise Events Team! I have a passion for event planning and hope to make your biggest day as seamless and wonderful as possible.

Associate planner

I am originally from Louisville but grew up in Litchfield, Kentucky. I graduated from Assumption High School and have a BA in Biology from the University of Louisville. I work as a pre-kindergarten teacher, but have always enjoyed event planning.

Through the years I have been on different committees and love seeing an idea turn into reality, from concept to execution. My favorite part about event planning is bringing people together and helping create memories for everyone to talk about for years to come!
