​​​Jonnelle is a founder of Events by Elle.  She is the lime to Michelle’s vodka cran and the girlboss powering Events by Elle on to new and exciting things.  She is our walking conundrum… a puzzle we can’t seem to solve, but who doesn’t love a good riddle?  This gal is both creative and meticulous, an extrovert and an introvert, playful yet serious.  We scratch our heads in amazement at the many roles she holds.
You will see Jonnelle producing at weddings, events and photo shoots; sketching ideas and helping bring them to life, setting up escort cards with her mathematical strategies to ensure symmetry, and behind the scenes in production perfecting details and coordination.  Her love of numbers comes in handy for room layouts, design measurements and managing The Elle Girl’s wedding budgets.
At home, a sweet (and rambunctious) little girl keeps Jonnelle smiling and her honey of a husband keeps her inspired.  Her happy place is in the country surrounded by the hubby, babe and extended family.  She’s our southern belle of the team, content with fresh air and a glass of lemonade as long as her planner binder is somewhere near in sight!​
