A Chicago native and sneaker lover, La Toya is the creative mind behind Elle Kay Events. For several years, La Toya was often complimented for her innovative ideas and detail-oriented work ethic, so she decided to merge all of her skills together and Elle Kay Events was born. Event planning for La Toya comes naturally; it is something that she finds joy in. She loves event planning because she helps others enjoy a special moment and the spotlight, without the stresses of managing the details.
What sets La Toya apart is that she customizes each event to the specific client. She creatively and tactfully draws out each client’s likes, hobbies, and interests, and uses these characteristics to create a memorable event.
