Meet Elisabeth | The Portrait Pop-Up at Ampersand

Meet Elisabeth! It was super fun to have her join us for the first Pop-Up at Ampersand, as I've known her for years... we both grew up in Omaha, Nebraska! She is an extremely talented event planner here in the Bay Area, if you need event help she's your girl. Check out her work at Elisabeth Sara Events and read on for more about her business, and her new rescue pup too!

Hi Elisabeth! Tell us about yourself.

Hello! I'm an Omaha native, new mother to Huey (biased but the cutest rescue pup) and event planner now living in the Bay.

We're so impressed with your event planning work, share a little more about your business.

My side hustle, and hopefully soon to be full time job, is my event planning company Elisabeth Sara Events, specializing in weddings. Weddings are my favorite events to coordinate... something wonderful to be part of someone's special day.

When you have visitors in the Bay Area, what are your top three spots to show off?

Having visitors in the Bay Area is the best. I can't help but brag about how I live in the most amazing US city. It's hard to narrow it down to three, but my visitor go-to's are:

1. Afternoon drinks and empanadas at Cerveceria de MateVeza (try the Morpho beer...delicious!)

2. Coffee/cinnamon toast to go from Trouble Coffee and enjoying them both at Ocean Beach.

3. Finally! Weekend of camping at Big Sur... the views you can't resist.
