Liana and Matthew Gebhardt both run Seneca Lake Design from their farm in the Finger Lakes. They  relocated from New York City, where Matthew, an accomplished artist and designer, ran a top event design company for 14 years and Liana, a classically trained French chef, worked on the event catering side, helping to run several high-end catering companies in Manhattan.

Combined, they bring over 20 years of rigorous experience and sophistication to the Finger Lakes region, focusing on high-end, boutique weddings and events. Their clientele is typically looking for creative ideas and unique experiences, executed with an unwavering attention to detail and craft.
