Elizabeth Gonzalez

Principal + Lead Wedding Planner

Elizabeth is a planner by nature. She was creating itineraries for friends and organizing everything, long before After Yes was even a dream. Her genuine passion for organization and planning, as well as a constant calm and patient demeanor, are just some of the reasons her clients and vendor partners adore her.

Elizabeth grew up in Katy, Texas and earned her Bachelor's in Marketing and Management from Baylor University. She launched the company in 2009 after leaving a career in advertising.

When Elizabeth isn’t planning a wedding, she’s at home with her husband, Fernando and two children, Michael and Madeline.

Personal must-haves include regular mani-pedis, chips and queso, coffee and wine.


After Yes was the best wedding decision I made! Elizabeth and her team are amazing. They are organized, detailed-oriented, creative, and a pleasure to work with. Elizabeth is an expert in the wedding industry and has connections with the best vendors in DFW. I had many questions and they were always very patient and answered them in an incredibly fast manner. The vision for my wedding came together beautifully due to Elizabeth's guidance. The day of the wedding was perfect. I was breath taken by how beautifully and well executed everything was. I was able to enjoy the ceremony and reception without any worries,and that is priceless.There are not enough words to thank Elizabeth for the great job she did. If you want your dream wedding, look no further, After Yes is the best there is.

I cannot say enough good things about After Yes! From our very first meeting with Elizabeth, we knew we were working with the right team. They were very responsive and so patient as they worked with our difficult medical and dental school schedules. The month of the wedding, Elizabeth completely took over all correspondence with our vendors so the groom and I were able to focus on school and family until the weekend of the wedding. On the week of the wedding, Elizabeth sent the vendors and the entire bridal party a detailed itinerary which eliminated all of our stress on the wedding day. I don't know how they do it, but After Yes will ensure your wedding works out better than you could ever imagine! I wish I could leave more than 5 stars because this team is easily worth twice what they charge!

After Yes did the most amazing job helping us plan our wedding! Elizabeth's consistent checkpoints and exceptional organization skills helped us to stay on track throughout the wedding planning process (despite our extremely busy work schedules!). After Yes also had great vendor recommendations and relationships which attributed to our wedding day being everything we had imagined and more. Most importantly, they took care of all of the behind the scenes details, enabling us to have a stress-free, flawless day. We cannot say enough good things about our experience with After Yes -- they are so sweet, organized and easy to work with and we would recommend them times a million! Thanks again After Yes!!
