I am thrilled to welcome you here! I am the owner, planner and designer of Always Yours Events, a renowned top wedding planning company for the stylish couple with exquisite taste dreaming of a romantic wedding that tells their story. In 2014, I listened to a voice inside and left a major luxury planner and caterer to bring AYE to life. Little did I know that within five years Always Yours Events would become an award-winning company planning weddings and celebrations from New England to Charleston, South Carolina to Naples, Florida, to across the Atlantic in Italy's countryside and Amalfi Coast! While the brand has evolved, my wholehearted mission has always remained the same -- we are a boutique brand creating romantic, ethereal and awe-inspiring weddings that leave a lasting impression.
Wedding and celebration planning has been a lifelong passion -- one that began when I was just fourteen years old working with my family at our charming inn on Cape Cod where we hosted events and vacations for people from all over the world. I went on and attended Boston University, pursuing an education in Event Management and receiving my degree in Hospitality and Event Management, with a concentration in Social Media Marketing and Public Relations. After graduation I spent several years managing events for two luxury and premiere event planners in Massachusetts. During this time I planned and designed celebrations ranging from 200 person weddings on private estates, to 800 person galas at elegant venues with celebrity headliners, to an intimate 80 person dinner for the President of the United States. As the owner of Always Yours Events, I feel humbled to have been named one of the USA's leading tented wedding experts and 2019's Best Wedding Planner of Boston by Boston Magazine. With over a decade of experience in the wedding industry, over twelve years of experience within the hospitality industry and 300+ successful weddings and celebrations executed, it is safe to say I am at home within the industry.
As a planner and designer, my mission is to define and bring your dream wedding to life. I wish to overhear your guests tell you that your wedding is the "best wedding" and the "most magical wedding" they have ever been to. I strive to create a celebration that becomes a part of your legacy, kicking off the next chapter together as partners in life. I desire to create a milestone so remarkable and tailored to you that you will grow nostalgic for your wedding day and pine to return to it long after it is over. And I hope that when your first anniversary arrives you look back and think to yourself that your wedding was the best day of your lives.
I am proud to be born and raised on the shores of Cape Cod but I swear the South is my second home. Southern cities in the US hold a place in my heart, and we spend many weeks in the South each year. Charleston, SC is my favorite, which is why my husband Sean chose to take me there as a surprise when we got engaged. And yes, our dog is named after Poogan's Porch, the famous Charleston restaurant! I am thrilled to say that moving forward we do have weddings and celebrations every year in Charleston since 2019.
Botanicals and florals, elegant interior design, architecture, fashion, old world European destinations, Capri and the Amalfi Coast of Italy, charming Southern cities like Charleston and Savannah, California coast and wine country aesthetics, 60s and 70s music, New England seasons and shorelines, golden hour, exquisite hospitality and the stories of my clients.
I am a dog lover, and our olde english bulldog Poogan is my little mascot. My husband and I love supporting and donating to shelters and charities who rescue pups, nurse them back to health and find them new forever homes.
