Elizabeth Clayton, Principal
Elizabeth has been planning weddings since 2006, and has done so full time under the Lowe House Events banner since 2011. She considers herself incredibly lucky to get to work on events full time – it just doesn't get much better than going to a party most weekends because it’s literally your job. Elizabeth
lives and works in Oakland, where she was raised between stints in Japan and England. Her education is in art, creative writing and interior design, and her work background varies from corporate communication to professional design blogger to band manager, all of which inform her event work in unexpected ways.
Outside of work she is a voracious reader, a dedicated coffee drinker, lover of galleries and museums, and jokes that her favorite activity is a close tie between sitting on decks and spending time with interesting people (so it's a total win when they coincide.)
Alyssa Griffith, Associate Event Coordinator
Alyssa joined the Lowe House Events team in 2012. She has been enamored with events for as long as she can remember - as a child, this often meant staging elaborate parties for her dolls in the backyard. In 2011, Alyssa successfully completed a Certified Wedding Planner program through CSU East Bay that kick-started her work in the wedding industry. She can’t think of anything better than a party that includes good food, hip music, and fresh flowers. So basically, she’s living her dream.
Other than weddings and parties, Alyssa really enjoys working out, spending time with family and friends, and photography. In her relentless pursuit to have more hobbies than hairs on her head, she hopes to learn calligraphy, graphic design, and watercolor. Basket weaving would be cool too.
