About us

Emily Sullivan is a firm believer in having roots and wings. “I can’t see myself living anywhere else. My roots may be in Mississippi, but my heart will always belong to New Orleans.” In high school, Sullivan dreamed of being a lawyer, and had no intention of becoming a wedding planner . “ I was not the girl who grew up dreaming about her wedding, but I’ve always been an entertainer- I love having people in my space.” It is not only Emily’s passion for New Orleans and entertaining that make her an extraordinary planner, but her candor and affability make her popular amongst brides and vendors alike. “I legitimately enjoy having relationships with lots of people.”

Establishing her first company, Get Polished Beauty, at seven months pregnant; Sullivan knows that perseverance, faith, and balance are essential ingredients to achieving greatness both in business and in life. “When you’re doing something you love and that you feel you were born to do, you know at the end of the day that all will be ok.” With years of wedding experience, Sullivan has learned that a game face makes people feel comfortable, and thats really half the battle to planning a successful event- making people feel comfortable. The other half lies in getting to know your clients, growing when necessary, and believing in yourself day in and day out. In essence, Emily and Get Polished Events can be summed up as “nothing borrowed, never too blue, elegantly old, and refreshingly new.”
