Your Trusted Wedding Team
To make your wedding day a success, The Elms Hotel & Spa has recruited some of the best in the business. Each member of our event staff has the experience needed to plan and execute every detail of your big day, ensuring that it is as perfect as you’d always imagined it would be.
Lacee Mawby, Catering Sales Manager
Lacee Mawby has been part of The Elms team for over half her life. At the age of 16, Lacee lit up the front desk with her warm personality and love of making people happy. Having spent 17 years calling the Elms Home, Lacee made her way up the ranks to become our Catering Sales Manager. While maintaining her position at the Elms, she received her business degree from the University of Missouri. She has now been working one-on-one with all of our wonderful brides for the last 12 years.
Lacee lives for the moment right before our brides walk down the aisle. In that moment, a bride captures all of the beautiful memories and takes that first step down the aisle with an angelic smile on her face, knowing she is about to marry the person of her dreams. Lacee is happily married to her husband Jonathan with whom she shares four beautiful children.
Tori Foster, Catering Sales Coordinator
Tori Foster has had a passion for weddings since she was a small child. Her wedding planning dreams came true when she joined The Elms team in July 2018 as our Catering Sales Coordinator. An Elms bride herself, Tori married her husband Jacob in February 2017, celebrating in the Regent Ballroom.
She graduated from Park University in 2012 with a degree in photojournalism but has always loved event planning. While working for local, small town newspapers, Tori teamed up with Terrie Applewhite of Events by Terrie in October 2016 and has since been promoted to Assistant Coordinator. She continues to work with Terrie part time and loves every minute of it; from meeting directly with couples to plan their perfect day, performing a variety of tasks to make sure everything is in place and speaking directly with vendors to create a detailed timeline of your day.
