About Us

Elite Wedding and Event Planning is the Hudson Valley’s premier wedding planner and designer, specializing in destination weddings throughout the Hudson Valley, Westchester and New York areas at non-traditional venues. Don’t get us wrong, we think ballrooms are great and all, but our couples usually take the non-traditional approach, preferring venues such as retreats, rustic barns, beautiful private estates, lush wineries, castles and historic inns.

What sets us apart from other planning companies is our uniqueness, passion and experience in planning and designing weddings that start with a blank canvas.  Our couples bring their inspiration and vision; we use our passion, talent, creativity and resources to bring it all together on their wedding day. Above all, it’s our goal to make sure each and every wedding we plan is as unique as the couples we work with. Take a look at our portfolio here to see just what we mean!

“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 | Wedding Planner | Designer

I am a little 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 discover something new to learn. For example, a simple Google search to find a Preston Bailey design lead me to his design course. Of course, I took that opportunity to learn more and that’s exactly how I got into wedding planning.

Here I am 5 years later with a degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management, a certification in wedding planning and design and tons of beautifully designed and thoughtfully planned weddings in my portfolio. In addition, I have had the honor of being featured on some of the trendiest wedding blogs!

Most of all, 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 learning. 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 having an office in the Caribbean and it’s definitely a goal of mine!

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 professional. The connection we make along the way in planning their weddings results in long lasting friendships, a stress-free planning process, and a fun experience.

People are always complimenting me on how passionate I am about everything I do and my determination. I am extremely passionate about making sure all the details are taken care of and every decision is well thought out. As a result, you can be assured that I will give your wedding 110% of myself and when things get hard I won’t easily give up no matter how hard it might get. Above all, I always offer my honest opinion about everything so if you need one I’m your girl!

Now that you know more about me, I’d love to learn more about your and your wedding planning needs. 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.
