About SEJ + Co.

We are a boutique event planning and design company founded by Emilia McCool in 2009 and specializing in unique events that focus on personality, style and guest experience.  We help you organize your to-do list into something that is manageable so that you can enjoy the planning process.  We create a cohesive design that reflects who you are and is both timeless and special.  We believe that you should spend the day of your event laughing, eating and dancing and let us sweat the rest.

We are compulsive list-makers and crafters.  We love being organized and getting our hands dirty.  We do things a little differently around here and are happiest when we are creating something thoughtful and new that showcases our clients’ incredible personalities.  We are event enthusiasts and savvy when it comes to social graces so each celebration can go off without a hitch!

The work of SEJ + Co. has been featured in numerous publications including Martha Stewart Weddings, Style Me Pretty, 100 Layer Cake, Green Wedding Shoes, The Knot, Utterly Engaged, RuffledBrides and Vogue.  We were honored and thrilled to be nominated for California Wedding Day Magazine’s Best of 2017!

We are available by appointment only. Please contact us to set up a consultation.
