Creating Events Down to A Science
Principal Visionary & Designer
In the Cincinnati area, when you hear the name Visions Event Design, you think of unique event presentations which include 3-D animal fixtures, character-themed centerpieces and exquisite designs. Beautiful and customized events are more than just decorations. For one visionary, creating an unforgettable event is an actual science.
Alvenia Ross, Founder of Visions Event Design, understands that to truly create a memorable event for her clients she must understand their vision for the event and bring it to life. Her design style envelops all or your senses, from admiring the handmade art, to feeling immersed in the theme. “This is a science,” says Alvenia, a graduate of Kentucky State University’s Biology program. “I never thought the skills I learned being a science nerd would be vital to the work I do as a designer. In science you study, develop and conclude the intricate elements the natural eye ignores. Event design and event coordination requires the same tenacity with developing intricate details that ultimately provide the best results.”
Alvenia has always had a love for education and a passion to create beautiful things. In her youth, she spent countless hours cross-stitching, crocheting and sewing while watching some of her favorite television shows. Throughout her educational career her passion for both crafts and science remained consistent. Oftentimes, she used her skills to create keepsakes for her high school friends; and later helped to plan and coordinate sorority events at Kentucky State University as a member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Incorporated, Lambda Chapter.
Alvenia strongly believes that people should make room for their gifts as they can lead to your ultimate purpose. “I still have a love for science and obtaining my bachelor’s degree in Biology and a master’s degree in Food Science will always be of importance to me,” she says, “but my true gift is producing tailored events for each individual client. I visualize something (that’s science) and create it with my hands (this is science too). I spend hours researching concepts and studying new techniques to perfect my craft.”
Since 2014, Visions Event Design has designed more than baby showers, weddings, galas, birthday and holiday celebrations, she also has a client list inclusive of the following: Withrow Alumni Association, Kentucky State University National Alumni Association, the Louisville Alumni Chapter of Kentucky State University, The Star Chapter Foundation, K.A.S.S.I.E. Project, She Was Made, and the Black & White Cancer Survivors Foundation.
