LILIAS & OLIVE was founded by JoBeth McElhanon. Known for her love of hospitality, she has a rich mixture of professional experiences. As a registered dietitian and a lifelong Southerner, she knows the joy a well-planned menu brings to a celebration - as a feast for eyes and the palate. Her eye for sophistication and an unparalleled attention to detail were assets in her time as a lifestyle blogger and wedding photographer. Most recently, her experiences in over a decade of non profit leadership have helped her to discover ways to make the most impact with any budget. She has grown her passion for finding unique ways to create connection within the event and to the community by infusing what is meaningful to you. This extensive range of professional experience, along with exceptional client service, joyful connections, and a passion for beautiful details allows JoBeth to curate memorable events that delight all the senses for you, your family, and friends.
