Meet the Owner & Lead Planner

Hi there! My name is Emily and I'm the owner of Lace & Brass Events. I live in the very northern tip of Wisconsin with my husband, son, daughter and chocolate lab. I absolutely love being a wife and mom! Some of my favorite things: traveling, everything outdoors, crafting, collecting rocks, having friends and family over, reading and wildflowers. 

I started Lace & Brass Events in 2014 and it has been a dream to see it grow. I absolutely love being a part of weddings. To see pure joy from the couple, family and friends is priceless. I spend all day running around and SMILING ear to ear. Yes, I get tears in my eyes during every father-daughter and mother-son dance! I go above and beyond what a typical wedding planner does, because I genuinely care about my couples and that their wedding is everything they dreamed of. 

Meet the Coordinator

Hi guys! My name is Chelsie and I am so excited have been a part of Lace & Brass Events as a Wedding Coordinator since 2017. I grew up south of Duluth in Cloquet, finished my undergrad at UMD and spent a few years "discovering myself" in Minneapolis. I returned a few years later to be closer to family and start a cheerleading gym. I love the balance the Northland provides between urban and rural settings. I spend my days with my husband, daughter and our two fur babies.


When I'm not working events or coaching cheerleading you can find me immersed in digital marketing. I've previously done event coordination for other special event companies and am excited to get back into the heart-racing, joyous, chaotic world of event planning! I believe that every person, relationship, and marriage is different - and there is so much beauty to working closely with my clients to let every ounce of it shine through.

Meet the Coordinator

Hi there! I‘m McKenzie, and I have spent the past couple of years working with Lace & Brass Events as an assistant and coordinator. I graduated from UW-Stout with a Master’s Degree in Rehabilitation Counseling and work to assist individuals with disabilities in finding employment.


When I am not working my Monday-Friday job, I love spending time with my fiancé and our two fur babies, Odin & Pippa. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling to new places, cheering on the Wisconsin Badgers and the Green Bay Packers, and binging a TV series on Netflix.


I am so proud to be a member of the LBE team and am excited to work with couples to make their dream wedding day come true! I love seeing the vision and plans of your special day come together and can’t wait to work with you!

Meet the Coordinator

Hi! My name is Maddy and I am overjoyed to be a part of Lace & Brass Events! I grew up in the Twin Cities and moved to Duluth in 2015 to be closer to nature. I graduated from St. Catherine University with a degree in Fashion Merchandising and Business and have worked in E-commerce for several years. In my spare time, I love going on hikes, eating great food, watching anything Marvel, and spending time with my husband and dog, Ronin.


With four sisters and lots of girlfriends, I've been lucky enough to be a part of many weddings and I enjoy every single one! I can't wait to work with all the amazing couples and look forward to being there for everyone on their special day.
