Creating perfectly curated and elevated weddings & social events

About Something Bleu

In 2013, I founded Something Bleu to cater to career-minded couples who need support in planning their wedding or social event. With a Business & Marketing degree from Bridgewater College in Virginia and a Certified Wedding Planner in Planning, Design, and Styling through the Wedding Planner Institute, you are in excellent hands for planning, designing, and executing your big day.

Having an ever-creative and detail-minded eye in every aspect of my life, my vision for creating Something Bleu bloomed from being the “go to” party and event planner for my friends, family members, and several Boston-area employers. As an accomplished equestrian for over 2 decades, I am driven to perfection through patience, and high attention to detail which translates into my love for planning the perfect wedding or social event!

We are very passionate about helping you find your voice for your dream day as your wedding should fully represent you as a couple.

Our Approach

Creating perfectly curated weddings that are classic, romantic, and timeless in style. Our goal is to reflect our couples authenticity and personalities in every detail with a seamless and thoughtful, yet fun planning and design experience that carries all the way through the final execution.

Our Mission

In combining highly personalized services with exceptional project management skills, Something Bleu has achieved over 10 years of wedding and special events memories for our clients. Our venues span private estate + tented weddings and events, to large wedding venues throughout Boston, to country clubs, castles, farms, historic properties, hotels, and more.

We help busy and professionally driven couples throughout New England plan, design, and execute the wedding day of your dreams.

Starting with our complimentary consultation, throughout the entire wedding planning process we will listen closely to your desires, needs, and wants.

Enjoy your engagement and let us take care of all of the little details!

As a boutique wedding planning company, we only take on a limited number of couples each year and only work one wedding per weekend to ensure that full attention to detail is captured. This allows us to be as hands on as possible for our couples and has been a successful recipe for many years in assuring customer delight.

Since every couple is unique, we will work with you with a calming, fun, yet professional, and hands-on approach to planning your big day.
