About Esse Event Planning

Esse Event Planning

Creating experiences and empowering others.

With over eight years of project management and event planning experience, Sidney brings a new perspective to celebrations. She began planning events as a college student for her campus activities board where she helped plan all events from open mic nights to spring concerts. In addition to her work on campus, Sidney also assisted a local upscale restaurant with weddings and events. After college, Sidney spent her free time apprenticing and learning alongside Atlanta-based wedding and events planners.

From busing tables to designing floor plans, Sidney has been a crucial part of almost every event she has planned. Events are personal. Sidney will plan the event as if it were her own and will pay attention to every detail imaginable. Her mission is to create accessible events that are meaningful and unique. Her bespoke approach to event planning concentrates on partnering with and supporting the Atlanta community and beyond.

In three words: Confident, Creative, Fun
