About 2 the 9s Events

2 the 9s Events is a full-service wedding and event production company recognized for creating one of a kind, stress-free weddings, parties and corporate events.  Our process starts with a personal consultation with Owner and Creative Director, Elizabeth Bainbridge, to design a custom event, which reflects your personality and all that is important to you.  We’ll then work hand in hand to craft the perfect event from our wide array of services, leaving no detail untouched and always keeping your budget in mind.

Elizabeth Bainbridge

Owner & Creative Director

A great event doesn’t take a village but it does take the right team, dedication and detailed planning. That’s why I’m personally involved in every event we produce at 2 the 9s Events. Leveraging both in-house and external vendor expertise, a custom event team will curate each detail to guarantee a personalized event.

From location to lighting, décor, entertainment and more, we will work with you to make sure every element, big or small, culminates into a deeply personal event that keeps guests energized, engaged and screams “You!” from beginning to end.

Throughout my 16-plus years in corporate and social event planning, I’ve had the opportunity to orchestrate flawless events for a broad range of clients. For corporate clients such as Dolby Laboratories, Mountain Hardwear, The Sleeter Group and Face.com, I have been able to achieve the unique balance of design sizzle and organization to create one of a kind receptions, galas and launch events.

My wedding clients have benefitted from my love of timeless, authentic special occasions. Whether on a beach or in a ballroom, at a private estate or a bowling alley, my team and I work closely with each couple to create unforgettable moments which reflect their lifestyles and personalities, not only for themselves, but also for their friends and families.

Our work can be seen in The Knot, Today’s Bride, Bride’s Magazine, California Brides, Ceremony Magazine and on leading industry blogs such as Style Unveiled and Coco + Kelley.
