Thinking of upcoming subjects for our Dream Job series, we knew this was one job that would resonate with almost all of our readers. Who hasn’t cruised pinterest and thought wouldn’t it be fun to dream up amazing parties for a living? Chances are, you’ve already seen images of Lisa’s work — her beautifully detailed events have been published everywhere from Martha Stewart Weddings to Town&Country. Over the past ten years, Lisa Vorce has taken her business from a single birthday party to a full service event planning studio specializing in travel-based occasions. She and her talented team of creatives have earned a reputation for doing destinations better than anyone else in the biz, and together they’ve planned unbelievable weddings in places like Bali, Vietnam, and Mallorca. The hallmark of Lisa’s work is an incredible attention to detail, and her hard work is reflected in an increasingly impressive client list. She’s planned weddings for celebrities like Ashley Tisdale, Curtis Stone and Lindsay Price, and most recently, the Lake Como nuptials of John Legend and Chrissy Teigen. (That said, in our world, Lisa Vorce is pretty much a celebrity herself!) We caught up with Lisa in between flights to talk about how she got her start, the hardest part of attending your own events, and what it’s really like to work this total dream job.
