As co-owners of Eclipse Event Co., one of the most widely publicized wedding and event companies in Texas, Kristi DePew and Lauren Chumbley have placed their stamp on the face of the Austin events industry. In the past three years, the duo has grown their company from a small two-woman operation to a team of seven wedding-and-event planners, and one that spans three locations and produces more than 75 events per year. Eclipse Event Co. prides itself on staying in tune with the latest domestic and international wedding trends. DePew and Chumbley attribute their success to a number of factors, including staying true to their three pillars of excellence: honesty, creativity and resourcefulness. They are known in the industry as hardworking, philanthropic and always willing to go the extra mile, while their complementing personalities have helped create an all-encompassing business strategy.
