senior wedding planner & designer

My story with Jubilee Events began back in 2009 while I was a young 21 attending the University of Connecticut. I didn’t major in event planning as that wasn’t even an option back then, but I did chair a committee that hosted a number of events for the entire campus community, so planning for an array of people is my kind of thing.

As is the case when you’ve had the opportunity to achieve so much within a position of your life, it’s also been tremendously rewarding to see the growth that has developed over the years. Looking back at where my first event design began to where they are now is fulfilling, to say the least, because not only do you realize how much trends have changed, you also can’t help but notice how many unique stories and families you have been a part of. I truly do dream about ribbons, flowers, colors, confetti, and cake. Always cake!! It’s usually because I’m cooking up the next design and our couples are THE coolest people we’ve ever had the opportunity to meet!

Now outside of our weddings and the wonderful world of planning, I am always active! I love to travel and am very lucky that my partner-in-crime and in life is an equal lover of spontaneous road trips. If there are any places you know we need to explore or eat our way through the US, please send them our way! I also love a good Sunday Funday as we need that day to rest and reground ourselves. Whether it’s craft cocktails and endless amounts of tacos with friends, a baseball game (Yankees fan for life), or just a line up of movies, Sunday is my day!

We share a love of our blue nose pitbull, Jack, who we also call our baby hippo as he is the biggest lovebug you’ll ever meet. When we aren’t taking trips with our matching RayBans (the guy, the pup, and myself), we are designing our new home – which in theory means I am designing the entire interior with my dream closet while he is designing the garage workspace. We have our hobbies!!

My favorite cocktail recipe
Buffalo Margarita 

Famously donned by Ted’s Montana Grill, but easy to make in your kitchen (or a friend’s!)

Ingredients

Directions

1. 3 parts Gin (yes, gin!!)

2. 1 part cointreau

3. Homemade sour mix (a little lemon, a little lime, simple syrup, and egg whites – yes you read that correctly. It makes a delightful froth on top)

Shake with ice, strain and pour over new ice so as not to have your drink watered down. Helpful tip: before putting the drink in your glass, use a lime wedge around the edge of your glass to garnish with sugar or salt.
