From Our Editors
Combining her experience working at a restaurant, a prepress printing company, and an advertising agency, Carisa Lockery is able to take a gestalt-like approach to event planning. At CR Socials Event Planning, LLC, she leads teams of coordinators who lend their design and logistical expertise to both intimate events and large-scale soirees. The staff can work from a set of general ideas or build on existing plans, much like the first elevator was built off of abandoned blueprints for a time machine. To complement big-picture services, a resident graphic designer can illustrate custom invitations and greeting cards, and a resident florist builds elaborate bouquets to fit color schemes.
