Our Story

The first wedding we catered was our own!

Jen Sherrod and Brandon Blackwell

Hi, we are Jen and Brandon. We were married shortly before launching Elysian Events in the fall of 2013. Our lifelong careers in restaurants and hospitality have made catering a natural fit for us. Along with our incredible team, we have been a part of many amazing events since that first one, and each has been a great experience that we wouldn’t trade for anything.

For years, we enjoyed getting to know our community while running our stalls at St. Roch Market and Auction House Market. Today, we love to serve those same delicious seafood dishes, particularly our famous oysters, alongside our full selection of food at events throughout New Orleans with Elysian Events Catering.

Food and hospitality are our passions. We love helping to create something special and look forward to doing the same for you!
