Get inspired

In need of a little inspiration?

_

At Esla Events, we believe that truly unforgettable weddings require two basic ingredients: expansive imagination + flawless execution.

Having great sources for inspiration makes the imagination part of that equation a whole lot easier and fun. Here is a glimpse into where we go, what we do, and what we read in order to gather great creative fodder. Whether you’re in need of inspiration yourself or just wanting to get a better sense of who we are and what we love, we hope you enjoy exploring these sources for ideas and creative fodder.

And when we’re not planning or designing, you’ll find us…

Feeling like a little kid again at the Met’s Egyptian wing in New York. Tasting culinary genius at Sushi Ran. Taking impromptu drives down to Capitola’s boardwalk. Checking out a friend’s latest and greatest stationery designs. Putting it all into perspective with rafting trips in Moab. Window shopping and scoping out the latest crazy trend on 5th Avenue. Discovering new favorites at Muji, ideas at Flax, and clever solutions at Tools for Living. Exploring the treasures of Colette in Paris. Reading David Sedaris and Mike Birbiglia for a guaranteed laugh. Admiring (and sometimes trying to figure out) the De Young’s latest exhibit. Seeking out hidden gems for reception venues in SF, Marin, and beyond. Enjoying Napa at its best and most down-to-earth at Elizabeth Spencer.

We see gathering high-quality and unique inspiration not only as a pleasure, but as our duty.
