Chelsye Harp

Owner, Event Designer 

Staring her career in the Marketing & Design industry, Chelsye soon realized how much she loved the creative world. From planning corporate and fundraiser events to designing her first wedding in 2007, there was no turning back and Intrigue was established the following year. When asked what she loves most about the event industry, she says “It’s one of the greatest feelings to be a part of one of the most lasting moments in someone’s life. Having an opportunity to plan and design an event for hundreds is incredible. It’s that moment in time when you see the look in their eyes, and you know you have made their vision a reality. We love to make dreams come true.”
