Hi! I'm Ellen.

I am the owner of Westcott Weddings, and I am thrilled to do what I love. I find joy in designing thoughtful experiences, and I believe that is exactly what your wedding day should be: An event that feels like you from beginning to end. An event that is personal, intentional, and meaningful. Above all, I believe in marriage, and I count it an honor to walk alongside my brides and grooms as they prepare for their big day and for life together as a couple.

Prior to launching Westcott Weddings in 2013, I spent six years in the agency world, consulting with clients like Estée Lauder, GE, and Whole Foods. That experience has proven to be invaluable and not all that different from what I do today in the wedding world, which is everything from creative direction to project management and execution.

To give your day the time and attention it deserves, I work with a limited number of couples each year.

I am honored to have had my work featured in leading print and online publications including Martha Stewart Weddings, Style Me Pretty, Southern Weddings, Brides of Austin, and Hooray! Magazine. 


It’s difficult to imagine pulling off a wedding without Ellen Westcott. From our first meeting through the final send-off, Ellen was professional, thoughtful, and friendly. She offered exceptional guidance and helped craft an event that felt personal, fun, and nothing shy of magical. Her calm confidence put everyone at ease, and she effortlessly handled any random request we threw her way. Ellen offers a perfect balance of work ethic, creativity, and kindness. On more than one occasion we told a vendor that she was our planner and they literally thanked us. Without question, choosing to work with Ellen was the best decision we made for our wedding. Simply put: if you have the opportunity to work with her, take it.

Ellen was the MVP of not just the wedding, the entire process. We would select Ellen one million times over, and truthfully, we miss working with her now that the wedding is over. We can only hope that Ellen decides to expand her work to become doula one day (only slightly kidding). Throughout the entire 18 months leading up to the wedding, she went above and beyond to make the design, vendor selection, and ultimately the coordination go completely seamlessly. Ellen has incredible taste, the patience of a saint, and the attention to detail of an architect. We were able to trust her with absolutely anything, and she more than over-delivered on our wildest dreams.

It was the best decision that we made! Ellen is amazing! From our first initial meeting, we felt confident that the wedding would be in good hands. Ellen is organized, professional, creative, and so thoughtful. She was there to answer any question no matter how small. She helped us put together an amazing vendor team and then guided us through the wedding planning process every step of the way. She has amazing styling and captured our daughter’s personality so well. We had a vision of how we wanted the wedding to “Feel” and Ellen took it beyond that vision a hundredfold. We were able to enjoy the wedding day because we knew that Ellen was at the helm. Every review that you read about Ellen (Westcott Weddings) is true! Thank you, Ellen, for making our daughter’s wedding such a special “perfect” day for her and for us.
