Eric Ayala

Venue Coordinator

Eric Ayala has been a member of our team since August of 2013. He grew up in California then moved to Washington in 1989, where he worked as the Assistant Restaurant and Banquet Manager at the Hyatt Hotel in Bellevue. Eric has a degree in Business Administration from Cerritos College in California. While studying to become a fireman/paramedic at Rio Hondo College, and working at Six Flags Movieland Wax Museum in California and Hilton Hotels, the hospitality field started becoming more appealing. "I like being helpful to people, and the hospitality field was a better way for me to do that while people are having a good time, although I had to assist in delivering a baby one time." Since then, Eric's career in the hospitality field has taken him all over the world with hotel food & beverage, event concessions, and hotel operations management onboard cruise ships and land based cruise line companies. "Port Gamble is a fantastic destination, you'd be out of your right mind not to hold that special celebration here in Port Gamble with the perfect views and tranquil settings. Having your event at one of Port Gamble's Venues is second to none." You can reach Eric at 360-297-8074.    

Elizabeth Crooks

Venue Coordinator

Elizabeth Crooks grew up in Southern California and moved to Kitsap County with her husband in 2014. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree from Arizona State University in Communications Studies. Elizabeth started as an Assistant Venue Coordinator here at Port Gamble Weddings in 2017 and quickly realized that she had a passion for the wedding industry. One of her favorite parts of the job is being able to see a couple’s special day come together over the course of a year. She says one of the best parts of her job is seeing the smile on the bride and groom’s faces after they say ‘I do’! She also can’t say enough about the team here at Port Gamble Weddings and Events “I am truly blessed to be working with a group of people who share the same passion for making every couple’s day just as special as they are!” Elizabeth can be reached at (360) 297-8074.
