about the aspen grey
“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
It has been a long held vision to create a unique event experience, one that tastefully, and seamlessly unites ambiance and décor. The seeds of this vision were sowed in 2016 with the inception of the Harrison Event Venue. However, after many attempts, unsurmountable challenges, and priceless lessons learned, the decision was made to regroup and retool.
The diligence and reluctance to abandon our goals paid off when the opportunity to create not one, but two distinct event experiences: The Aspen Grey and The Emory Estates (coming winter 2020), presented itself. With this opportunity, we were able to apply all of our lessons learned from the Harrison Event Venue and combine wisdom with vision.
Under the leadership of the co-owner, SJ; the branding of Aspen Grey began to fully focus on the key concepts found within the event industry. It was important to not only create a unique experience, but one that combined functionality, efficiency, and style.
We were able to create a new path, and blaze a new trail. This is why the aforementioned quote from R. W. Emerson holds such great significance to us.
What Aspen Grey Represents?
The name Aspen Grey is both appropriate and personal. SJ always told herself that should she have another daughter, her name would be Aspen Julianna. If she were to have another son, his name would be Emory Greyson. When this venture came to fruition, the names Aspen Grey and The Emory Estates represented a birth, a birth of a dream realized. Aspen Grey is “The New Standard in Event Rentals”. A vision of attainable opulence.
The Aspen Grey Gallery provides a fully customizable experience as unique as our clients. We provide a beautifully framed intimate canvas that will accommodate your corporate, or social event vision.

Behind The Brand......
SJ, owner of Designluxe Event Co.,
Luxury Lifestyle Interior, Creed Risk Management and now the Aspen | Grey Event Gallery wanted more… After many years of supporting his wife, the dynamic duo wanted more for their family, more out of their current businesses and to make a difference.
As the existing companies started growing, so did SJ's dream. The big picture was to eventually have multiple event venues that housed all of her beautiful rentals, along with a customizable event experience. January 2019, EJ + SJ signed on the dotted line and the
ASPEN | GREY EVENT GALLERY was born.
