Catching Up with Tracy from A Trace of Elegance

Tracy Vitale (Gershon), Owner and Head Event Designer


My Role at A Trace of Elegance

I design and produce each event and welcome our new clients into the ATOE tribe. I love getting to know our clients personally which allows me to make their event come to life. 

How do you describe what A Trace of Elegance does?

A Trace of Elegance is a Metro Detroit based wedding and special event planning company that specializes in creating fully customized celebrations based on our client's needs. ATOE doesn't just execute an event, we take it to the next level by elevating the overall experience. No matter the event type we can handle the details and allow you to relax and enjoy the celebration. While we are a wedding planning and event planning company based in Grosse Pointe, Michigan we take on events across the state and across the Midwest. Planning a destination wedding - we love that, too! Are you planning a small, intimate elopement - we've got you! Just know that no matter the event logistics, we will serve as a valuable resource to ensure all facets of your event are well thought out, well put together and flawlessly executed. 

My Background Before A Trace of Elegance

I have always had a passion for design and event planning. My past personal and professional background has guided me through the world of photography, marketing, corporate event planning, communications and business. I have a Bachelor's of Science degree from Grand Valley State University as well as a Master's of Business Administration degree from Northwood University.

After hours, what are you doing?

I'm probably at home in my living room with a glass of wine (red or white, depending on the season) with my rescue dogs by my side. I love cooking, reading and yoga. Spending quality time with my husband and our dogs is one of my all time favorite things to do.

A fun fact about Tracy...

My first name is my mom's maiden name. My nickname "Trace" is also how the business was named.
