Meet Emily

Owner & Founder of Events by Emily

Emily founded Events by Emily in 2019 and she has loved every step of the journey! After planning her own wedding from start to finish for 2 years, she realized how much she loved the process. Planning both intimate and large events had always come naturally to her, and she had always had a calling to be an entrepreneur so she combined both desires to form her dream job. She finds event planning incredibly rewarding and especially loves how personal it can be. When planning your event, her dedication to executing your wishes and being totally transparent are two of her top priorities. No matter the event your planning, you are guaranteed to gain a friend in Emily who will make sure everything is done with the highest regard. She’ll take care of your event as if it was her own.

Some fun facts about Emily:

1. She used to dress at Elsa for birthday parties but had to “let it go”

2. She has a cat who must think he’s a dog because he loves cuddling

3. She’s Italian and loves all Italian foods

4. At her first concert ever, she won backstage passes and got to meet The Offspring

Meet Matt

Event Planning Intern

Matt was born and raised in New Jersey, but he recently moved to Pittsburgh as a Technical Support Engineer at SAP Ariba. In his free time he loves to travel to new places, and is a big fan of listening to and creating music. He is super excited to be working at Events by Emily and looks forward to contributing however he can!

I will always and forever recommend Emily for everything she went above and beyond to do to make our guest say it was the smoothest running wedding they’ve ever been to!!! I was able to just relax and enjoy my wedding day, because I entirely trusted her and it truly paid off. Not only was she proactive about keeping the timeline on track, but quickly fixed snafus before they turned into bigger problems and before I or my guests even noticed! Nothing but positive things to say.

Emily was so helpful in making our day stress free! She was so much fun to work with and is very thoughtful and detail-oriented. Our table center pieces and decorations looked absolutely perfect. She worked seamlessly with our photographer and DJ, and the timing of everything was spot on. Emily even took the time to capture our bridal party dance, in the best video I have of that moment. I wish I had more big events to plan coming up so I could work with her again soon! She is the best!!

Emily is AMAZING! She went above and beyond to ensure our big day ran as smoothly as possible. She made sure we didn’t have anything to worry about and took care of every single little detail from coordinating vendors to making sure relatives were taken care of. Throughout the planning process Emily was readily available and made every effort to ensure my questions and concerns were addressed and taken care of. I highly recommend Emily and I credit her for making our big day as seamless as it was!
