Meet Lisa, the founder, creative soul, and driving force behind Nightingale Wedding and Events.
When Lisa plans your wedding, you know you’re in good hands. She’s your biggest advocate, your most loyal cheerleader, and your voice of calm when moments of overwhelm creep in. As a hopeless romantic, she has your back in every way because she wants your wedding to be even better than you imagined.
Lisa is always cultivating relationships with trusted local vendors. She loves a good challenge and has turned some of the craziest logistical situations into the dreamiest wedding days.
No matter how busy she gets, Lisa always makes you feel like you’re the only one on her calendar. She cares deeply about her clients, and most of them have become lifelong friends. She also believes that wedding planning should be fun, that regular laughter is a must, and that positivity can turn any situation around.
Want more fun facts? Lisa lives by handwritten checklists, loves dancing to old-school rap and R&B music, and is a tea girl at heart who thinks coffee is overrated. When she’s not ticking things off her to-do list or getting creative for couples, you’ll find her spending time with her husband (who she met at a wedding over 11 years ago) and Pitbull, Ruxin James. Lisa and her husband had not one, but two weddings – which makes sense for this lover of love!
After eight years of mastering all-things wedding rentals, catering, and coordination, Caity officially became a full-time member of the Nightin-gal team in 2020.
Caity is fun, imaginative, and unbelievably organized, and she pours these masterful skills into every wedding she touches. With Caity working on your big day, wedding planning feels like a breeze. And when your “I DOs” roll around, you’ll be so glad you had her in your corner.
Caity’s favorite part about being a wedding planner is watching everything come to fruition after months of lining up all the important details. Her own smile widens when she sees the joy on couples’ faces when they realize their dream wedding came true!
When Caity isn’t planning beautiful weddings or designing epic tablescapes, you’ll find her coaching lacrosse. Caity and Doug (her hubby) adore hosting game nights, sharing sushi, and walking their pup, Riley.
As our ‘behind the scenes’ Nightin-gal, Rachel helps keep Nightingale Wedding and Events running like a well-oiled and well-loved machine.
When she’s not coordinating elegant events, she also curates our social media feed so that the rest of the world can get a sneak peek into the magic that happens here every day.
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. She’s been with Nightingale Wedding and Events since 2019, and has quickly established herself as a wedding-planning pro.
When Rachel isn’t busy managing magical wedding days, you’ll find her snuggling up 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. Fun fact, Rachel is also an officiant and often marries our couples!
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.
