Meet Our Stylish Team!

President: Laterika Jelks

As the owner of Stylish Traditions, I devote myself to creating innovative and memorable occasions that will remain in my client's heart for a lifetime.   

As an industry professional with over half a decade of experience, I have had the privilege to design and produce a plethora of events including galas, fundraisers, fabulous weddings and more.  We have also coordinated everything from movie premiere parties to fashion shows.  

As an established wedding and social events company, we are able to share our experiences, expertise and industry connections.  You can find several articles published by Heather M. Stewart on "how-to" insights and "DIY" tips for brides by Stylish Traditions on The Perfect Wedding Guide’s The Wedding Blog.  

Recently published in the “Urban girl’s guide” CRAVE Tampa Bay, Stylish Traditions Wedding & Event Design has had the opportunity to connect with other inspiring women business owners in the Tampa community.

"I am very pleased to be joining the Stylish Traditions and EventOvative professionals. The opportunity to assist in the development of truly memorable occasions with an attention to detail is especially satisfying.  I hope that my level of enthusiasm and prior experience will make each and every event a reflection of the people for which it is designed.  I look forward to taking care of the details, so that you may focus on other things and enjoy your event.”
