Elizabeth "Ebs" Long
My fun and stress free approach will calm your nerves and often make you laugh.
I am originally from the Midwest but have made the mountains my forever home. I moved to Breckenridge January of 2005 to take the famous ‘6 months off’, after college. I was here for about 2 years when I met my husband. I could not be more ecstatic that I decided to be a 'ski bum' for a short time instead of diving right into a career. Now here I am with my dream job!
I have a degree in Marketing and a degree in Management from Northwest Missouri State University. I have extensive experience in guest services which I feel really help with the overall wedding guest experience.
I’m a very careful and serious planner but still love to keep the mood light and have fun as weddings are a time for celebration – not a time to stress out! My goal is to minimize your stress and have my clients really enjoy the planning process.
I LOVE FASHION & STYLE and enjoy helping with those little touches that have a big impact.
Two summers ago, I decided to leave my hometown of Nantucket to experience a Breckenridge
winter. I thought I would stay here for one season until I fell in love with Colorado summers.
Although I miss Nantucket beaches, the mountains have been an amazing new place to call
I graduated from Boston University with a degree in Hospitality Administration and a minor in
Food and Wine. After college I moved home to work for a catering company where I had the
opportunity to work with an incredible team to plan and executive events.
I’m extremely excited about the events industry and working with these lovely ladies who have a
diverse set of experience. Growing up in a tourist town taught me the importance of guest service
and hospitality and these qualities are simply part of who I am today. Through my experiences,
I’ve learned the importance of maintaining a positive and professional attitude while fostering a
curious sense of creativity. I’m enthusiastic and passionate about creating moments for you that
will last a lifetime.
Born and raised on the East Coast I bring a direct yet approachable and fun personality to the mountains and my planning. I will keep you calm, stress-free, and smiling on your big day! I moved to the mountains 10 years ago and met my husband here. We moved away for a few years, got married, had twin boys, and decided it was time to move back to Summit County. We have always had a love for the mountains.
I have a degree in Hospitality Management from the University of New Hampshire and have been in the catering/event/wedding planning industry for 14 years. I have worked in New Hampshire, Boston, Minneapolis, Beijing, and here in Summit County planning events. I have worked for large corporations and also small, Mom and Pop companies so I understand the importance of guest service and paying attention to detail. I love working with Brides, Grooms, and their families to watch their dreams come true. My favorite part about event planning is watching a blank space transform into something magical, running through the chaos of the big day, and then seeing everything get cleaned up and turned back into a blank space. It really is a cool thing to be part of!
When I'm not working events, I own a boutique fitness studio in Frisco called Barre Forte Summit County. We have specialized Barre classes 6 days a week and also host private events in the studio. It's been a lot of fun creating a welcoming and encouraging community through fitness and wellness.
I look forward to working with you during one of the most memorable times of your life!
Just over three years ago, my husband and I took a leap of faith and decided to move to the mountains after Hurricane Harvey forced the closing of his restaurant. While we were nervous to leave home, we were even more excited for a new adventure. We couldn’t be happier that we chose Summit County to be our new home and are extremely grateful to be here!
I have a Marketing degree from University of Houston and am backed by over 10 years of experience in the wedding and events industry. It is my ultimate goal to provide my couples and their families with a sense of comfort throughout the entire planning process. As a fellow Colorado bride, I know how complex it can be to plan a wedding in the mountains. I am here to offer you direction, thoughtfully curated solutions and, most importantly, peace amongst the chaos that is planning a wedding.
I am extremely passionate about helping couples navigate through this exciting time and bringing their wedding visions to life. I have planned and executed hundreds of events and I have a serious attention to detail. My favorite part about planning is developing a genuine connection with my couples and their families. I am beyond thrilled to work with you and help you create lifelong memories of your most important day!
Ever since I left these lovely mountains in 2010, I missed everything about it. So after exploring what Washington D.C. and San Francisco had to offer, I decided to return and am thrilled to be back in Colorado. I am also now married and have an adorable little boy!
I’m so excited to be in the wedding planning business. Helping others and problem solving come natural to me so as a planner for your big day, I want nothing more than for you, the bride, to feel confident that your special day will exceed your expectations!
I’m an open book and take pride in my work. I encourage you to express yourself throughout the wedding planning process. I can’t wait to help make one of the most important days of your life the best it can be!
After growing up in Raleigh, NC, I made the decision to move west and try out a new location. Once I saw what Breckenridge had to offer, I knew I was in it for the long haul! 10 years later, after gaining a fiancé and two dogs, I wake up each day feeling so lucky that I get to call this gorgeous place my forever home.
My wedding career journey began approximately 7 years ago and have only grown to love it more over time. While I studied Hospitality Management at East Carolina University, I believe most of my experience comes from my time working with all sorts of amazing couples. Within the past 5 years, I have assisted in the planning of over 200 weddings between Keystone, Breckenridge and Beaver Creek. My attention to detail and passion for helping create your once in a lifetime event will help put you at ease throughout the entire planning process.
One of my favorite aspects of wedding planning is getting to build a relationship with each couple I am privileged enough to work with. I believe that having a personal connection helps you build trust in my abilities to create the most stress free experience for you and your loved ones. In addition to this, I love being a resource to help guide your creative ideas and visions for your big day to ensure it is everything you dreamed of. I look forward to getting to know you and your family through this fun and exciting journey!"
I moved to Colorado in August of last year from St. Louis, Missouri. It was truly the biggest decision of my life to date, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. In search of a change in scenery, I couldn’t be happier that I can now call Colorado and the mountains my home.
I graduated from the University of Missouri in December of 2018 with a hospitality management degree, emphasizing in conferences and events. While attending school, I began my career in this industry in May of 2018 for a wedding planner in my prior hometown St. Louis. Shortly after arriving in Colorado, I started assisting with weddings for Distinctive Mountain Events. If there was ever a home away from home feeling, this was it!
I have always had the passion and heart to plan and execute events ever since I can remember. My favorite part of the job is connecting with clients, listening to their dreams, and helping them create their perfect day. I fell in love with living in the mountains and wedding planning. Now I get to do both!
