Lara Nestler

Event Stylist

From early on in life, Lara has always been affected by food, travel and culture. Because of this, it was only natural for her to pursue a career within the hospitality industry. She now translates her passion into both serving others and creating unmatched experiences.

Liza Stankowski

Event Stylist

Liza began her career at just 14 in a New Jersey Country Club as a prep cook. This started the great passion for the food and service industry. Managing Emeril’s Italian Table and planning events for up to 80 guests cultivated her desire to create a train, mentor, and development program for the staff to grow with these events and appreciate the passion that goes into a single plate.  She is most proud of booking and planning a James Beard Celebrity Chef Tour dinner working with many JB Award winners and nominees. Liza is more honored than words can say to have the privilege to work side by side with The Ryland team and is overjoyed that she gets to help couples plan their special day in a place that holds such a distinguished place in her heart.
