“an amazing eye for design”

Ellen, Maddie, and the entire Ellen Thomas Event Design team are the best! Our wedding weekend was the most perfect weekend from start to finish thanks to them. They made the entire wedding planning process so easy. Their connection to and knowledge of vendors is extremely helpful. And they have an amazing eye for design and know how to make things fun. I could not recommend Ellen Thomas Event Design more!

Ellen Thomas and her crew are amazing people! Our wedding was flawless from beginning to end - so sad it’s all over. Ellen was a dream to work with! A total professional who made me feel like I was her only client for a whole year of planning. Ellen was able to talk to me, my daughter and the maid of honor and bring everyone’s dream/vision come true. She is absolutely the reason our wedding was such a success. I would highly recommend ETED!




We can not say enough amazing things about the Ellen Thomas team! Not only are they so much fun to work with, they are so talented and professional! Our wedding wouldn’t have been what it was without these amazing people!!!

Ellen is the definition of a professional event planner. She did such an amazing job planning my wedding and our welcome party. She is so easy to communicate with and she is just SO kind. She leads you through all the steps, makes it clear when you need to get things done and decisions made. I would recommend using Ellen for ANY event you have - she will make it one to remember! Thank you, Ellen, for making my dream wedding come to life!


“A Beautiful Experience”


“our day was flawless”

Working with Ellen and her team was nothing short of incredible. From the beginning, they were eager to help and were extremely responsive to emails and phone calls. I felt like I could ask them anything, and it was always clearly and thoroughly explained to me. They ensured our day was flawless (and if there were, I certainly didn’t know). If I did it all over again, I would choose Ellen Thomas Event Design every single time.

“better than we would have ever imagined!”

Ellen Thomas Event Design was amazing! They listened to what we wanted and they made sure the end result was even better than we would have ever imagined! They worked so hard every step of the way and we could not have been more pleased! It truly was a dream weekend and my other two kids said there is no way their weddings could be better! That sums it up!!!

“Exceeded expectations”

ETED was perfect for our event. Their responsiveness and attention to detail exceeded expectations. Would absolutely recommend for anyone having any kind of event.

Ellen Thomas is amazing! She has such a positive personality in any situation. She loves everyone as if she's known them her whole life! I highly recommend using ETED in any event planning! Such a great and calming experience working with her!

“can't say enough good things”

Ellen and her staff made our daughter's wedding the success that it was. She was so helpful in guiding us through everything we needed. We can't say enough good things about her. We have one more child to marry off, and if he chooses to get married in Oxford, we will definitely recommend her to our future daughter-in-law. Thanks again to Ellen for making our day so special!

- Taylor Shockey Robinson


She has every detail thought out and makes the wedding planning process A LOT less stressful. We would have been lost without her. She is one of kindest people I know, and her goal is to make sure that your day is the day you exactly dreamed of—she made my day perfect! I will forever be grateful for her and her team. Her team is wonderful, as well! Choosing Ellen Thomas Event Design is the first step into having a perfect wedding!!!
