MAKING YOUR DREAM COME TRUE... IS MINE.

Having been raised in a show business family, I spent my formative years attending some pretty dreamy parties. Today, I'm proud to have the honor of bringing your magical event aspirations to fruition with Only In My Dreams Events.

As a graduate of Fordham University with a Bachelors of Arts in Comparative Literature, I see the storyline behind your event. And, from my wealth of experience, weave together the special elements that will make it unforgettable. I spent years hosting guests at my own private Bed & Breakfast in the Berkshires and operating an independent catering company so I know what goes on behind the scenes, and what is necessary to create a flawless experience for guests.

I also hold a Masters of Science in Non-Profit Management and Urban Policy from the New School for Social Research, and specialize in non-profit fundraising events. It is my pleasure to invest in our community and help raise as much funds and awareness for the multitude of important causes your organizations represent.

I've planned my own fairytale wedding, my incredible father's memorial and countless other occasions for close friends and associates. I know the dream is in the detail, but I also know what you need most during these important moments is an attentive hand to guide you through.

Let my flair for fabulous design, penchant for dramatic detail and network of amazing partners create the event you've seen while you slumber.

The Importance of Equality

At Only In My Dreams Events we believe strongly in the right of marriage equality. Being based in Massachusetts, the first state to legalize such unions is something we are quite proud of.

We know first hand that it is not always easy to find resources that are inclusive for same sex marriages, having planned Oskar and Mike’s wedding at the amazing Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield, MA. When using many conventional services – we always had to pick who was the bride and who was the groom – something that was not only impossible, but quite frustrating. Here at Only In My Dreams Events – we strive to have all our materials and vendors be inclusive of same sex couples.

Through our close relationship with Berkshire Theatre Group and its Colonial Theatre, we offer a very unique opportunity for a one of a kind wedding. With over 700 Seats and lots of lobby space, the Colonial offers amazing possibilities for your special day. Also, the theatre is located in Massachusetts, which offers the ability to tie the knot in the historic state that first legalized marriage equality in 2004, leading the way for marriage equality. If the Colonial Theatre is not the right fit for you, we have plenty of other venues that we can recommend that also stand for equality.

What To Expect From The Planning Process

Whether you're planning an intimate affair or the year's biggest gala, we'll provide the attention and inspiration you need to see your event through from concept to creation. The most important component of the planning process is cultivating a shared vision and we will carefully glean the most important elements of your dream event during our initial meetings together.

There are several other notable things to consider while embarking on your event planning journey...

 

timing, as you know, is everything.

The best time to start planning is always now. We love being brought on board as soon as you can see an event on the horizon so we can fully explore the range of available options for your occasion. Of course, we do know that short timelines are occasionally a reality and can readily make arrangements within whatever time frame is available.
