About Us

Why we do what we do

It began with our real-life HGTV moment.

Our Team

Meet awesome people


Elizabeth Slagel


Elizabeth worked in public relations before becoming a wife/mother focusing attention on raising three children and supporting her husband’s entrepreneurial endeavors.  She watched firsthand the grit and sacrifice in building a quality business from the ground and is poised to give 110 percent.  Her passion has always been creative endeavors and the wow factor when hosting a business or personal event.  The wedding industry is a natural for her as she loves interacting with people and can channel her inner creative.

Wedding coordinator

Tonya Waller

Event Coordinator

Tonya is one of the most respected ladies in our community.  She is a long-time educator at St. Lawrence Elementary in Ironton where she still teaches today.  During her tenure, she also doubled as a caregiver for her late brother.  When she’s not gardening, she loves to spend time with her family and friends and take her golden retriever on long walks.

Brad Ewing

AIA, LEED-AP | Registered Architect Principal, ESM architects Mason, OH

This is the second project Brad Ewing has collaborated with the Slagel properties both involving the challenge of reconfiguring a structure to create something vastly different than the original. His level of professionalism and knowledge of quality building products have made him a first-class choice. His work is seen all over the greater Cincinnati area and the Greenbrier, WV resort communities.

Bill Ripley

Landscape Design Principal, Stride Studios Cincinnati, OH

An award-winning landscape designer, Bill was recommended on a hillside swimming pool project at the Slagel residence. His problem-solving solutions for creating functional spaces while adding artistic focus made him a natural for helping create the outdoor space at Weymouth Hill. His work can also be seen all over the greater Cincinnati area and beyond and is featured in a number of notable landscape publications.

Robert Slagel

Owner, CEO Portable Solutions Group

Robert is a serial entrepreneur who has launched four startups in the Engineering/Manufacturing realm.  The wedding industry is a step outside the box for him, but a project he has enjoyed placing value in investing in his hometown.

Brian Dufore

Project Manager Portable Solutions Group Manufacturing Leader

A talented craftsman, Brian took a sabbatical from leader of PSG Manufacturing (a sister company to Weymouth Hill) to take the reins of the project and see it through to completion. His craftsmanship can be noted in the detail of the finishes and revered by others in his trade. Brian also married the love of his life, Kelli, and had his wedding reception in the cabin before Weymouth Hill was complete.
