About Us

Meet Lisa

I’m Lisa Nelson, founder and creative visionary behind Just For The Occasion, LLC ®.  For almost two decades I have had the joy of serving up impeccable cuisine, orchestrating events, and sprinkling floral magic throughout events big and small.  Equipped with the gift of hospitality and a love for celebrations, I bid farewell to my chef jacket and now serve exclusively as the firm’s event planner and lead designer.


Once a curator of  special culinary dishes I now curate one-of-a-kind events that honor life’s most cherished moments.  With a planner and design board in hand, I navigate the complexities of planning, designing, and executing your event so you can enjoy the planning process free of stress.  From menu planning and managing timelines to coordinating vendors and placing décor, I am a partner that can be trusted to handle the details of your event with precision and care.  


Creating memories that last a lifetime is my goal for every event.  Seeing clients relax and enjoy their special day free from worry brings me joy and is what drives me to go over and above to deliver excellence for every client that I serve.
