Xandi is our newest “behind the scenes” Nightin-gal! After working with the Nightingale team twice, for her wedding ceremony in 2020 and reception in 2021, Xandi decided she needed to be part of the team!

Xandi has an inherent talent for organization and planning, and will use these skills to support the Nightingale team and their clients. From reaching out to vendors to find one that is the right fit for a client, to keeping the Nightingale blog up-to-date with the latest wedding trends, she looks forward to helping the team in any way needed.

In her free time, Xandi loves to travel all over New England with her husband and dog! She also enjoys playing board games, watching rom-com movies (Hitch is her favorite!), and drinking iced coffees year round.



Rachel has been with Nightingale Wedding and Events since 2019, and quickly established herself as a wedding-planning pro. She is known for her attention to detail, fun-loving vibe and calming personality which gives her clients peace of mind while planning and on their wedding day!

Rachel works with our wedding management couples to create a one-of-a-kind experience. Between design and the day of your wedding, she is her clients biggest fan and advocate. 

Rachel is a self-proclaimed hopeless romantic (you’ll find stacks of romance novels on her bookshelf), and she believes that everything happens for a reason – including the union of our amazing clients. 

When Rachel isn’t busy managing magical wedding days, you’ll find her at home with her wife, Amy. She’s a homebody at heart (although, she adores a good party!) and can often be found doing DIY projects around her historical home. 



Eric joins Nightingale events after being in the hospitality industry for more than 20 years! His passion for entertaining started early, planning dinner parties and themed events for close friends, and grew into a successful professional career. Eric gained much of his experience through general management of many reputable restaurants in CT, RI and LA. During his time in LA, he was the house event lead where he planned, executed and oversaw parties ranging from intimate dinner parties to 200+ star studded Hollywood events! Eric will be working with our wedding management clients in CT.

Eric is a fun-loving planner that strives to help clients discover how to express their unique personality and style into their event. His exceptional detail-oriented and organizational skills help him become a puppet master behind the scenes, seamlessly coordinating his clients' events. Eric's favorite part of being a planner is seeing his clients at ease during their event, enjoying their guests and having a wonderful experience themselves!

In his free time, Eric has a travel bug and loves to see new places, meet new people and learn about and taste regional cuisine. When he isn’t traveling and nurturing his passion for food and wine, he enjoys hiking and going to the beach with his family, his partner, Kris and their adorable dog, Rhody!



Elyse is a new member of the Nightingale Team and is a coordinator for our wedding management couples! Her passion for event planning began at a young age and truly blossomed when she was maid of honor for her sister, and realized how creative wedding planning can be.

Elyse works to create and design a unique and tailored wedding experience for each of her clients, by bringing all the important (small and large!) details to life. She thrives at being "behind the scenes" and taking care of all those final details, and looks forward to seeing the reaction of her clients when everything comes together on their special day.

In her free time, Elyse is an avid runner and hiker and always has her dog by her side. When she isn't exploring with her dog, she is spending quality time with family, searching for the perfect cup of coffee and quaint coffee shop and baking till her hearts content!
