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 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.

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!

I was born and raised here in beautiful Colorado. I love running, hiking and live music, and as a native I have an intimate knowledge of the area and love to show it off.

I graduated from Colorado University with a degree in Communications and a minor in Public Relations. After college I went to work for a boutique Public Relations firm where I had the pleasure of planning events for most of our clients.

After landing in Breckenridge I decided to pursue wedding and event planning full time! I am also currently on the Board of Directors of the Breckenridge Festival of Film where I am in charge of coordinating key events for the festival.

I believe that your wedding should be an extension of your personality and you should be able to achieve your perfect day…and keep your sanity!

Looking forward to helping you plan your dream wedding.

I heard the call of the mountains about 3 years ago now and haven't looked back. I grew up in a small town in Michigan, attended Grand Valley State University where I majored in Communications with a minor in Public Relations, after graduation I packed my bags and headed west where I landed in Vail, CO. After bouncing between Colorado and Jackson Hole, WY I decided to make Breckenridge my home for the time. I enjoy hiking and kayaking in the summer and skiing to drown out the winter blues. 

During my time in the west I have worked in various aspects of hospitality and guest services. My background has taught me close attention to detail, how to maintain a level head in all situations, and that each person is unique and so should their experience. I have a warm and friendly personality and like to have fun, but I also maintain a professional demeanor when it is time to get down to business. 

I look forward to being a part of your special day.

I moved to Breckenridge, five years ago from beautiful Switzerland and have enjoyed every moment of it! Although I miss the stunning alps, I have not regretted the decision I made.


Back then, I participated in and coordinated small and large sporting events and competitions. 

All of a sudden, I found myself  planning my best friends wedding, which was the best-life changing event I've ever done.

I've always been a person that likes to plan party's, getaways and vacations for family, friends and customers.

I have 10+ years of hospitality experience which includes guest services. I am passionate, creative and have a great eye for details to ensure everyone is content.

I find my happy place in the outdoors and enjoy all summer and winter activities that keep my mind fresh and humble.


I am anxious to meet you and help plan the best day of your life!
