“Angela and her team delivered above and beyond our vision for a rustic, elegant fall foliage wedding at Mount Gulian Historic Site in Beacon, NY. For nearly a year, we worked with Angela on planning, design and execution, and she covered every base (and many bases we would never have thought about) with our style and preferences in mind. We also managed to have plenty of fun along the way.”

Owner | New York Wedding Planner & Designer

I am a little New York wedding plannerOCD about learning everything and anything. I believe in order to be an “expert” at your craft you have to know everything about it. Ever since I was 5, I’ve been obsessed with learning. I love researching things, which usually leads me to discovering some amazing concepts or new unique venue.

My craving for knowledge has led me to completing a B.S. degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management and a certification in wedding design. My need to be the best at what I do has resulted in tons of beautifully designed and thoughtfully planned weddings in my portfolio. In addition, I have been featured in some of the top wedding publications.  You can find some of my weddings and expert advice on Harper’s Bazaar, Huffington Post, Carat & Cake, 100 Layer Cake and the New York Times to name a few!

When I’m not obsessing over something new to learn or working on a gorgeous wedding I love to travel. My bucket list is long and planning destination weddings has afforded me the ability to combine two things I love – traveling and planning weddings. I am not a fan of cold weather but ironically I live in the Northeast. As a result, I find my travels leading me to warm weather destinations like Costa Rica, Hawaii and the Caribbean. On cold days, I dream about lounging on the beach in the Caribbean!

Three words that my friends and family would use to describe me are talkative, fun and creative. I can talk for hours and not run out of things to talk about. I’m Italian, need I say more. I’m a strong believer that everything you do should be fun! Therefore, if you make a career of something you love to do you are guaranteed to have a fun time. Of course, as a wedding planner and designer creativity is a big part of the job and it comes naturally to me.

My clients would describe me as awesome, a lifesaver and honest. The connection we make along the way in planning their weddings results in long lasting friendships, stress-free planning, and a fun experience.

People are always complimenting me on how passionate I am about everything I do. I am extremely passionate about making sure all the details are taken care of and our couples receive the best experience. As a result, you can be assured that I will give you and your wedding 110% always. Above all, I always offer my honest opinion about everything so I’m your girl if you are looking for honesty without the fluff!

Now that you know more about me, I’d love to learn more about you and your wedding. You can share with me by email at angela@elitewedevents.com, fill out our contact form or give me a call at 845-430-6394.
