Ann Travis Events

Comprehensive event planning




I.e. “ The Creative Visionary”

Owner, creative director

Ann is the head creative visionary who personalizes the look of every event to your specific style. Her wedding design work has been featured in Metro Detroit Weddings, Wedding Chicks, and Ruffled Wedding Blog.

Ann grew up in the events world. As a child, she was intrigued by looking over her mom’s shoulder while at their family flower shop. But, it wasn’t just the pretty stems that caught Ann’s eye. She was intrigued by all the aspects of the process with her mom’s clients — from reading through floral design recipes to analyzing orders and budgets. Ultimately, Ann’s interest in this pairing led her to focus on an education and career in mixed media art and corporate event planning. The multi-layered approach to her wedding art form and the expansive scale of the events in her repertoire have informed every part of the Ann Travis Events experience. As the lead designer and founder, Ann directs the vision, is intricately involved in every step of the planning process, and oversees the associate planners. The fresh way Ann approaches everything—from color to trends to the planning flow of meetings—ensures that each planning experience is handled with great attention to detail. Ann takes a hands-on approach to the look of your wedding, creating live previews of your day-of details and tablescapes that you can touch and feel. Ann’s extensive planning and design process ensure that your wedding is comprehensively prepared for and meticulously crafted.

Ann is from Southeast Michigan, is an occasional-burger-eating vegetarian and lives with her partner Kurtis, their German Shepherd, and two Cockapoos. When Kurtis and Ann are not busy planning events, you can most often find them drinking Moscow Mules by the the lake. With a background in planning large fundraising events, the thing that makes Ann most proud is giving a percentage of proceeds each year to the philanthropy of her choice.
