Meet The Team
Lisa began her career as an event planner over 10 years ago and during this time she has learned what it takes to be a successful planner…passion, organization and attention to detail.
Lisa has had the honor in planning over 1000 events over her professional career. During this time she has learned each client is different and special in his or her own way so she takes the time to get to get to know each on a personal level so she has a better understanding of her clients so she can create the perfect event for them.
Over the years Lisa has had the honor of meeting the most incredible vendors that specialize in entertainment, rentals, lighting and floral. She knows it takes a team of passionate individuals that are successful in their trade to pull off an amazing event.
Chef Luis De La Cruz
Chef Luis was born in Mexico and at an incredibly young age he began his culinary journey that eventually made its way to The United States. Keeping close to his roots Luis began creating excellent Mexican dishes full of flavor like cilantro, cumin, lime, garlic, and chiles which he soon discovered that these flavors work impeccably with raw fishes and this is when he began his passion for Japanese sushi.
Luis trained with new-style sushi master Wayne Conwell at Sushi Sasa and, like Wayne, he found his own way to put his own stamp on the classics. Luis over the years has learned to put his own stamp on the classics. In Luis’s case, it is to apply the bright flavors of his native Veracruz seafood region to the naturally subtle style of Japanese sushi.
During Luis’s culinary career he has worked as a head chef Sushi Sasa, Sushi Hai and La Margaritas. We are so excited to have him part of the Eclectic Elegance Team.
Amando started his culinary career at an incredibly young age. He began his career at one of the most prestigious catering Companies in Mexico City, Ambrosia del Bosque. During this time, he had the privilege of serving former Mexican president, and other superstar icons at some of the most beautiful venues in Mexico City; Castillo de Chapultepec and Bellas Artes. His service is top notch and his culinary execution is flawless.
