About Us

Emily Sullivan is a firm believer in having roots and wings. “I can’t see living anywhere else. My roots may be in Mississippi, but my heart will always belong to New Orleans.” Her early career path nearly led her to become a lawyer, but this self-described “entertainer” pursued wedding planning instead, and has since happily produced events for over seven years. New Orleans presents the perfect setting for exquisite parties. The culture and history, the local flavor – the magic of the second line; everything converges here to form extraordinary experiences and new beginnings for local and inbound destination couples alike. Sullivan loves her city, and takes pride in welcoming wedding guests, making them feel at home.It is not only Emily’s passion for New Orleans and entertaining that make her an extraordinary planner, but her candor and affability make her popular amongst brides and vendors alike. She is a “relationship” person and uses her intuition and attention to personal details to personalize the wedding planning experience. She loves to surprise her couples during their planning, taking extra care to get to know them intimately so she can do the job right.Over the years, Sullivan has demonstrated faith and balance, ingredients essential to achieving greatness both in business and life. She has been recognized by several wedding industry publications for her achievements, including The Knot, Weddings Unveiled, Southern Living Weddings, Style Me Pretty and The Wedding Channel. She considers her “game face” and innate ability to make people feel comfortable half the battle to planning a successful event. “The other half lays in getting to know your clients, growing when necessary, and believing in yourself day-in and day-out”. In essence, Emily and Get Polished Events can be summed up as “nothing borrowed, never too blue, elegantly old and refreshingly new.”
