About Me


Ellen Lanier

The name Willow Marsh Weddings was inspired by my love of the Lowcountry, where I was blessed to grow up. The name speaks “southern elegance” which I feel best describes my vision for this company. A company that with the support of my husband, Chris, and my beautiful children, Aiden and Alyssa, I was able to build.

I love to travel and am very proud of the stamps in my passport! I look forward to all of the adventures I will be able to take my little ones on in their lifetime. I am obsessed with all things Disney, enjoy being on the water, and love crafting and DIY projects.

My passion has always been planning. At an early age, I would plan birthday parties and get togethers for friends. After throwing countless events in my personal and professional life, I decided that I needed to pursue a career in event planning. I started my journey at a company called Nine Line Apparel where I gained knowledge and experience about the event planning world. In the meantime, I was planning my own wedding! Once my wedding was wrapped up, I felt something missing in my life and realized that wedding planning made me happy and it was time to pursue my lifelong dream of wedding planning. I started making moves right away!

I take pride in each and every wedding whether I start with the bride from the moment she says yes or I come in to handle the last-minute details. I look forward to working with you to make your day the best day of your life!
