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!
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!"
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 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!
