Liz Kamali Founder & CEO

Liz always envisioned having a company that would impact the lives of people through her passion for design and creativity. They strive for exceptional customer service and to make everyone they encounter feel comfortable and “part of the family” right away. Our mission is to create a memorable experience for companies and clients that are looking to build long term relations and to help people stay more connected and organized.    

She had always dreamt of being somewhat of an event planner, and that is when Liz Kamali Events came to life in July of 2015. Liz never really knew what she was getting herself into with each event. Although, she has always been somewhat of a risk taker, “learn as you go” type of woman. Liz knew starting this business meant she’d need some extra hands and quickly recruited her two closest friends and supporters, her husband Elliot and her best friend Jousline.

Liz has shown to be a loyal, driven, caring and smart business woman as well as wife and friend. It is these qualities that have built the foundation of her business and why she is one of a kind when it comes to building and maintaining relationships. It is because of her passion in everything she does that makes her the perfect event planner!

Elliot Torres Operation Manager

Of course this all could not be achieved without her husband, Elliot Torres, by her side every step of the way. Elliot fell into this role quickly with his ability to solve problems fast! When it came to setting up and breaking down events this is exactly what Liz needed in order to be successful.

Elliot’s background in construction and retail made him perfect at figuring out logistics, thinking on his feet and focusing solely on the task at hand. Liz didn’t think twice when delegating this role to Elliot. He spent his early years working in warehouses, loading and unloading trucks and delivering goods. Through this he mastered the skill of getting things done right and in a timely manner. It also doesn’t hurt that he has a creative curve for art coming from the streets of New York City, he enjoys much of the design aspect process as well.

Vanessa Feliciano Associate Lead Planner

My name is Vanessa Feliciano and I am the associate lead planner for Liz Kamali Events. I’m a Puerto Rican American born and raised in the big apple (New York City). I also grew up assisting family who worked within the hospitality industry, so it was inevitable that I would follow in that path. I have a degree in Liberal Arts and am currently enrolled in school for Business Management. Planning for me, is a continuous learning experience. I enjoy the different phases of the planning process and the creative aspect. What I love most though, is meeting new people and taking on a new experience while embracing their vision.

I relocated to the Tampa Bay area six years ago with my family in search for new opportunities, and came across Liz Kamali Events. What I love about being a part of the Liz Kamali Events team is the welcoming and inspiring atmosphere. Since the moment we met, there was a natural connection and they made me feel like part of the family.
