Lisa knew from a young age that event planning would be her future. You could find her thumbing through bridal publications and asking her mom to take her to bridal shows.As she grew up, she worked in hospitality and gained extensive experience but once she met her husband she knew what she was meant to do. And in 2012 she started to build the strong foundation that Nightingale Wedding and Events stands on today.
For the past 8 years she often becomes more than a planner, but a friend and confidant. She places great priority in allowing clients to be guests at their own event. She has unmatched energy, creativity, and a sense of humor that often has everyone giggling through the day.
The joy that she brings to each and every event translates to an event planned with heart, dedication, and most of all, fun!
I met my husband walking down the aisle with him at a wedding
As a child I loved sketching and designing wedding dresses
I don’t think you’ve had a full meal if you haven't had dessert
I’m related to Florence Nightingale
Her extensive experience, attention to detail, and piece of (wedding) cake attitude helps her clients to relax and truly enjoy every moment of their special day. Lisa is there for all of the planning moments, she is passionate about everything from saying “yes” to your dream venue to organizing complicated logistics. Her main goal is always to create an event that her clients will remember forever.
She welcomes a challenge and loves to incorporate her creative design ideas in any out-of-the-box ideas that are brought to her. At Nightingale Events, your wedding becomes your fingerprint, no two are the same and Lisa brings you to life in the design of a lifetime! She loves being challenged and examining every detail so she can execute your vision for the perfect event! She never lets a final detail slip through the cracks, as she is in contact with vendors and her team every second leading up to and during your event. She will never miss an opportunity to make her clients’ dreams a reality.
She is family oriented so when she’s not planning and designing weddings, she can most likely be found spending time with her husband and their pitbull, Ruxin James. She loves making a difference in the people around her and you can often find her bringing people together outside of event planning as well.
Lauren is a multi-passionate gal that explores the many facets of her creative side through wedding planning and calligraphy. Not only does she work with us here at Nightingale Events but she also has her own calligraphy business, Wink Pink Ink, where she specializes in custom pieces for your home or wedding.
Lauren’s attention to detail means that she is a stickler with her to-do list; you won’t find her anywhere without it! She is made for event planning as she loves seeing all the small details add up to your grand experience! Lauren also uses her creativity to craft blogs for Nightingale Events and as the “mom” of the group you can bet she’ll have some great advice for you.
When she’s not creating a custom calligraphy piece or event planning, you can find Lauren spending time with her husband finding the best slice of pizza or taking a trip to Stars Hollow to visit the Gilmore girls.
Rachel has been creative from a young age and always found herself engulfed in art and music when she was younger. As she grew up and into her career she found her strengths in organization and design detail. She started in the wedding industry helping brides find their dream gowns at a bridal boutique which naturally progressed into wedding day coordination.
Now Rachel keeps herself busy with event production and blogging for Nightingale Events as well as Patient Service Coordination at her “day” job. She combines her organization and bubbly personality and makes you feel like an old friend gently guiding you in the right direction on your big day.
When she’s not event planning Rachel likes to paint in her at home studio, bake and decorate cakes and write poetry. She also enjoys learning about Eastern philosophy and likes to do yoga on the weekends after a cup of good coffee with her wife.
Caity is no stranger to event planning! With her upbeat, energetic, and go-getter personality, she has helped people in all different aspects of the industry. She started her career in children’s events and if anyone has tried to get a flower girl to smile during bridal party pictures, that means she’s our secret weapon! She fell in love with the wedding industry shortly after and knew that’s where she wanted to be.
She has worked within the spaces of catering, rentals, decor & design, and now planning and coordinating. She knows not only what goes into planning but also the behind the scenes vendor preparation that a wedding planner needs to understand to be successful. With her behind-the-scenes knowledge & her great attention to detail, she is great at fitting the puzzle pieces together to make the picture perfect day!
On her down time she loves to spend time with her hubby and puppy. She is always moving; whether she’s traveling to places like Greece, Costa Rica, or Germany, or playing lacrosse, hiking or skiing, she likes to keep busy!
Nightingale Events has been featured as a leading event planner in Connecticut Bride Magazine, The Knot, Wedding Wire, Simply Eloped, Carats and Cake, and Crate & Barrel.
