The Los Angeles-based duo has been creating stylized events since 2004. Abel McCallister Designs' signature aesthetic can be described overall as artful. “No matter the style or feel of the event, our designs will always exude elegance, attention to detail, fashion-forward elements, customization, and quality,” Abel says. “We find nontraditional ways to engage the guest’s eye.”

Abel, on where they find inspiration: “We love to travel and explore—the coolest off-the-beaten-path shop, bar, off-off-off-Broadway theater, and simple everyday interactions.”
