Maxine fell in love with event planning when she was a little girl proudly titled "Mommy's Assistant."

Monica Greeley

Co-Founder, Creative Director

Monica has a serious obsession with design and décor. She is an extreme planner and jumps at every opportunity to put her creative skills to the test. When she’s not dreaming up the design of an event you can find her at the beach, trying every food known to man and checking something new off her bucket list.

Jessica Cochran

Planner, North East Director

Jessica loves helping people especially when it comes to organization. There’s nothing quite as satisfying to her as a timeline for an event, organized closet, or simply a made bed. Coming from a background of data analytics, creativity is a MUST to balance out her brain. You can probably find her trying out a new board game with friends and family or stopping to pet a dog on the sidewalk. Jessica lives in Manhattan with her husband where they often host game nights and make the tastiest charcuterie boards.

Go to Wine: Lambrusco | Favorite Flower: Peonies

Guilty Pleasure: Ice cream every night

beth brooks

Editor, Content Curator

Beth is an LA native - yep, she's vegan and loves a cold pressed greens juice. She's also a hard-core people person, and loves working with others to achieve their goals. When she's not working, she's probably cooking or trying to create the next great vegan recipe at her home, which is filled with her two staples: plants & lots of red wine.

Go to Wine: Beaujolais | Favorite Flower: King Protea

Guilty Pleasure: Madewell, watching Gilmore Girls for the 500th time, and becoming a member of too many wine clubs!

mikaela greeley

Designer, Production Assistant

Mikaela is a serious people person; she loves nothing more than to put a smile on someone’s face. Finding creative outlets is a serious passion of hers, especially when it involves flowers. When she is not in the studio, you can find her in the middle of her next DIY project, spending time with family or jamming out to some good tunes.
