Lovely Night is the collaboration of husband and wife team James and Gelsey Sherrill.
We officially launched our company in January of 2017 with the vision of providing our clients with events that are memorable and uniquely theirs.
James has lent his creative touch to many restaurants in his native Seattle as well as San Francisco. In San Francisco he worked several positions at Jardinière and then went on to take the sous chef position at the two Michelin-starred seafood restaurant Aqua. Back in Seattle he worked with Jason Wilson at Crush. He then served as chef de cuisine at Restaurant Zoë and executive chef at Re:public and Single Shot. In 2014 he was presented a Rising Star Chef award by Seattle Met Magazine. James is looking forward to combining his extensive restaurant experience with his previous catering background. Working for other caterers and various restaurants he has catered well over 100 events, including his own wedding in 2016.
Gelsey has also spent her adult life working in the hospitality industry, with stints at Bastille Café & Bar, Sandpoint Grill, and 1927 Events. She delights in providing clients with anticipatory service during their events as well as leadership to the service team.
With their combined decades in the hospitality industry, James and Gelsey are thrilled to be collaborating on their own project.
When not working they enjoy spending time with their children, camping and cycling.
