Who We Are

Elyse & Sunni

Joy seekers at heart, we launched Modern Aisles after a magical trip to Amsterdam, because of our shared love for celebration and community. Those who know us know that we prioritize joy, celebration and play in our partnership.

As a Queer and Native-owned business, we bring this same energy to meet the needs of couples and clients who haven’t historically been centered by the wedding and event industry.

Elyse Gordon

Elyse brings almost a decade of wedding and event planning experience to Modern Aisles. She delights in crafting intentional gatherings to allow people to celebrate together. Elyse has been told her superpower is joyful event execution, and will not only make sure every aspect of your wedding or celebration is executed expertly, but she’ll support the emotional journey as well.

When not prepping weddings, Elyse is cooking, singing, organizing for a more just world, and playing with animals.

My favorite restaurant in Seattle

Marjorie for happy hour; anywhere that I can order a plate of fresh, yummy gluten free pasta. 

In my free time, I like to

Dance it out, read, connect with friends, think about radical philanthropy, cook, be outside or hanging with our dog.

TV shows I’m into lately

Grey’s, Sabrina, His Dark Materials, Vida, and the New L Word.

Favorite place I’ve traveled to so far

The Jordaan in Amsterdam

My go-to coffee and cocktail of choice are

Americano with oat milk at The Station and I love a bourbon Manhattan from Marjorie.

On a Saturday night, I could be found

Singing karaoke, watching burlesque or watching a movie at home with a bottle of wine.

My favorite restaurant in Seattle

Definitely Annapurna Cafe on Capitol Hill! Literally order anything on the menu, you can’t go wrong – this place is a local gem!

In my free time, I like to

Nerd out on UX design skills, write, workout, advocate for trans rights, travel, and play often.

I’m a Grey’s fan for life, but I also like Vida, Killing Eve, Pose, Billions and Schitt’s Creek.

Favorite place I’ve traveled to so far

Lake Atitlan in Guatemala and snowboarding in the backcountry in Colorado.

My go-to coffee and cocktail of choice are

An Americano or cold brew from Squirrel Chops and my drink of choice typically involves a good bourbon old fashioned.

On a Saturday night, I could be found

There’s a good chance I’m out with friends for dancing, catching a drag show at Queer Bar or chillin’ at home with our dog & popcorn.
