Team CAE is comprised of 10 talented designers & event planners who continue to amaze at each event. "We started as a team of 3-working from my carriage house over 21 years ago, but it truly takes a village to raise an event", says LisaMarie. Known for their very innovative, yet classic and timeless floral designs, the CAE team has earned an excellent reputation throughout New England and beyond! LisaMarie works closely with her clients and her team to produce some of the most amazing and lush floral combinations that have become renowned. "They are true reflections of what the client desires," says LisaMarie. Clients repeatedly rave about LisaMarie`s relaxed, professional, honest, and straightforward demeanor. She works alongside her clients with a vivid understanding and a caring mentality. Her utmost desire is to bring forth the success of their dream event! She has even been dubbed "The Female David Tutera of New England!” LisaMarie still states that this all hinges on the productivity of team CAE. After all, "There is no "I" in the word "TEAM," says LisaMarie!

Meet the Team
LisaMarie has been the founder and Navigating Event Designer and Producer of Creative Ambiance Events since 1995. She is a dedicated and loving mother of two. Her son and daughter are her constant support for all the hard work she does. LisaMarie loves to keep a positive and fun work environment for the CAE Team.
LisaMarie has an innate sensory ability to reflect her clients’ style. With the help of her team of experts, they incorporate the latest trends in fashion and art and the client's style into each and every event. She works to incorporate any ideas that the rest of the team may have on designing her clients' big day!
"Each of us contributes to the success of what we set out to do for the client. We don’t do cookie cutter work…no two events offer the same elements of detail…It is like a fine painting. Each color contributes to the palette, without one- the other is not visually the same..."
Shayla is LisaMarie's daughter. She started working with CAE at a very young age as she learned how to put together invitations and wedding favors behind the scenes. Shayla was given the task of designing her first aisle design for a wedding when she was only 13. The bride loved what she proposed and it came out even more beautiful than she had imagined!
Since then, LisaMarie has taught her many aspects of the fine art of event planning and design. Today Shayla participates in almost every design plan and implementation. Recently Shayla's beautiful bouquets were published in Simply Chic Wedding Magazine. The pictures don't lie-she is now 18 years old, but according to LisaMarie-well beyond her years. Shayla also enjoys drawing and painting in many different mediums.
Her BFF, Acting most of the time as LisaMarie's right hand, Bevin is very organized and efficient. She loves planning & organizing everything! She works as a Librarian in her real job, but, in former experience, she worked as a retail merchandiser creatively designing window and floor displays. Bevin brings both of these combined experiences to the table here at CAE. Bevin has been working as a part-time team member at CAE for over 15 years now. She takes great pleasure bringing a client’s ideas and thoughts about their event to life. We ALL love to see people’s faces when they walk in and see the whole venue sparkle and shine with their own vision.
A word from Bevin Marie...
Starting out in LisaMarie's basement at her home we had to haul flowers in and out, up and down, it was a challenge. Soon we took over the carriage house…and it was still a challenge! I am so glad that I hung in all this time and I am able to enjoy our success in our new place at the Evolution Mill. Space and organization have made us much more efficient and our jobs that much more fun! We are able to focus on the details and the care LisaMarie has put into an event really truly shows! Now we enjoy some wine, music, some food, and beautiful flowers each and every weekend!
What more could a girl want?
Melissa joined Team CAE for a few weeks as an intern, and enjoyed it so much that she has decided to stay! As a member of the team, she quickly realized that the job of an event planner is not as easy as it looks from the outside. "There is a lot- A LOT of behind the scenes planning and design that I love, but the client never knows about', says Melissa.
Melissa has found that she really enjoys creating bouquets and centerpieces. It is a satisfying feeling to see LisaMarie's visions and all of the hard work finally come to life. We take so long in planning, preparing and organizing for the big moment- Nothing satisfies Melissa more than seeing the look on a bride's face when she sees her bouquet or reception space for the first time! Melissa is an energetic, enthusiastic softball athlete, and she is a graduate of URI with a focus on Public Relations.
