Eilis PetrosinoWith an eye for design, Eilis started her first passion project with her husband, by purchasing The Inn at Five Points, a bed and breakfast in Saratoga Springs, NY. Built in 1886, Eilis had a vision to transform the dark, outdated Victorian-era home and restore its natural beauty with clean paint colors and sophisticated fixtures. Working as a full-time teacher and business owner, Eilis draws inspiration from classic features to current trends. Pulling from the beauty of nature and trending design ideas, she’s able to narrow down what will work for you individually or your event and what won’t. A lifelong New Yorker, she calls both the Hudson Valley and the Capital Region home, but also loves to explore new areas and is happy to travel to you! Whether you’ve already started your design process and simply need help pulling everything together or haven’t even begun thinking about design elements, Five Points Design Co can help you at any stage!
Wedding Planner vs. Wedding Designer
We’re often asked: What’s the difference between a wedding planner and a wedding designer? We’re here to clear up this question once and for all!
A wedding designer like Five Points Design Co works with clients to focus on every creative element of your special day. From charger plates and tablescapes to layout of your ceremony space and everything in between, a designer will help you focus on those unique details that will WOW your guests and separate your wedding from your best friends’ neighbors Pinterest board.
On the other hand, a wedding planner is someone who will work through the details of the day, focusing on timing elements like what time you’ll need to arrive at the ceremony and making sure all of your vendors show up when they’re supposed to. They’ll provide a timeline for you and provide logistical assistance to ensure you’re stress free on your special day.
