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!
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!
Being a married gal herself, Lauren is intimately familiar with the wedding planning process and the care and attention to detail required to make a lasting impression.
A self-starter with a love for events and design, she’s truly focused on the details of your day. Lauren started her career in event marketing and has over 8 years of experience working with high-end clients on large scale programs and invite-only celebrity events.
Today, she’s an Event Producer + Calligrapher on our team and also has her own calligraphy business, wink pink ink, where she specializes in custom pieces for your home or wedding.
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.
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.
