Event Producer, EED Blogger, Backbone of EED
maureen in a nutshell Maureen is what you would call a born and bred Maryland girl: she loves lacrosse, the Baltimore Ravens, Maryland flag art and Eastern Shore sailing excursions. Maureen is slightly obsessed with anything Disney –yep, she is a sucker for a happy ending– and she is fluent in memes & gif’s. You will find her in her happy places: the running trails of Baltimore County, laying in a garden of pink peonies, or snuggled next to her beau with a big cup of green tea. Maureen met her Prince Charming and soon after, he popped the question while sharing ice cream at their favorite spot in 2017 with her Grandmother’s ring! Their 2019 wedding is on the books…and Elle is more than honored to be her Matron of Honor!
the start Maureen graduated with degrees in Advertising, Public Relations, and Marketing from Florida Southern College, and obtained her Masters Degree in Contemporary Communication from Notre Dame of Maryland University. While she was in her Sophomore year of college in 2013, she emailed Elle about an internship. Without even an interview, Elle told Maureen to meet her at a wedding that weekend. Maureen is the only intern to date that, at the very first wedding, had ever taken things out of Elle & Jillian’s hands to do them instead, knew the timeline by heart, and scratched off things on the to do list prior to even being asked. Not surprisingly, she became a part of the EED team.
backbone of EED To be honest, Maureen’s days of interning were short because she became a permanent part of EED very quickly. Maureen has her hands in many parts of the company and a single title would not do her justice, so Elle calls her the “backbone of the EED.” Maureen is on-site at events producing them, styling them, and coordinating them. Maureen is on-site at editorial shoots, carrying the bride’s dress (or 60lb centerpieces) at weddings, telling Elle she thinks something should move to the left and so much more. Maureen is an exceptional writer and an author of the EED Blog (she also is a writer for Style Me Pretty’s blogposts!) and Elle’s right hand woman on all things EED… and Elle’s life. If you ask Maureen, she will tell you that EED has shaped her career aspirations, and she now knows that the world of wedding and beautiful events is her calling in life.
fun fact You may hear the EED girls call Maureen, “Astronaut.” No, she is not one, but somewhere in Chapel Hill, NC, there is man who believes she was going to space March 2018 and would bring back moon rocks from the International Space Station’s gift shop for him…yes, the gift shop.
