owner & creative director

My name is Candice Coppola and I am the creative force behind Jubilee Events. When I opened this company in 2007 I had two objectives: to give my clients an unforgettable experience while planning their parties and to create beautiful, innovative events that clients and their guests would never forget. I have the amazing opportunity to work one-on-one with extraordinary people, like you, as you host a monumental occasion.

I gained my experience in design from studying art and art history at Central Connecticut State University. In 2007, Jubilee Events was created after I discovered my own love affairs with parties. I launched our destination brand in 2014 after working with several clients across the world on their unique weddings. I moved to Barbados permanently after living on this beautiful island off and on since 2012.

At Jubilee Events, we provide an unparalleled level of service to each of our clients with our unique and fun planning experience. Our primary focus is bringing to life your incredible love story and vision through design, organization, and planning. Our work and voice can be seen in many publications, but most recently and most notably in my second inspirational coffee table book I co-authored, The White Dress: Destinations -- The definitive guide to planning the NEW destination wedding.

My favorite color is pink, there isn’t a ruffle I don’t love, I’m always over dressed, and I eloped with my husband in Barbados!

My favorite cocktail recipe
the rose spritzer

First of all, adulting is hard. One saving grace to being an adult is whipping up a cocktail. Here's my favorite weekend (ok, also weekly) go-to that keeps my spirits higher than high:



1. Your favorite bottle of Rose (I am currently loving Whispering Angel)

2. St. Germain or your favorite elderflower liquor

3. Freshly squeezed lime

4. Soda water

5. Crushed ice

Break out your favorite glass and fill it half way with crushed ice. Add in the amount of Rose equal to the day you've had. Incorporate one shot of St. Germain and add lime juice to your taste preference. Finish off with soda water. Gently stir. Instagram story you drinking and living your best life. Repeat as many times as necessary.
