Eliana Baucicault is a celebrated wedding and event planner in Atlanta, Georgia with a career that has spanned over a decade. She built a 6-figure event planning company, EllyB Events, working with some of the top celebrities and influencers on celebrating moments that matter to them. She started out like most entrepreneurs– wanting to be the most sought after and best in her field.
With all her success, her purpose came to her in the many years after starting her business. After years of feeling disenfranchised in her industry, she decided that she need to make a change and that is what prompted her to lead the call for celebrating diversity, which began with her book and magazine. Celebrating diverse love stories, families, and business owners has become Eliana's mission.
Her purpose encouraged her to author her first book, B Inspired: The Book, an inspirational look book that was an instant success. The catalyst behind her book: so a woman of color could walk through a bookstore and see her face on the cover. She also want to inspire anyone, no matter of their race or background, through curated event design.
Pretty powerful stuff.
With the success of her book came a new idea: a curated magazine, featuring a wide range of celebrations from weddings to baby showers, that prominently features persons of color and business owners of color.
