Emily Louise Jacks

Emily Louise Jacks is an event planner and designer currently based in sunny Southern California. Back in 2008, Emily personally planned and designed her own fairytale wedding and one could say in the process of marrying her true love she was fortunate enough to discover another. A few short months later, she made the bold move to leave a successful corporate advertising career, got a job at a local flower shop, interned for a SoCal designer and started Louise Georges Yves — a boutique specializing in floral and event design. LGY has since evolved to offer design and planning services for social gatherings and corporate events, as well as, residential and corporate interiors. Whenever life gets crazy you’ll find Emily at the flower mart or farmer’s market grabbing the best blooms of the season and whipping up a little ditty just because. A born and raised Texas gal, Emily graduated from the University of Texas at Austin and thanks her lucky stars that she met and roomed with our amazing camp founder, Lisa Field.
