Firefly Events is a full-service wedding planning and design
company with offices in New York and California and available for travel worldwide! We take care of all the logistics and work with you to design an event that's beautiful and unique. We believe that every wedding is an opportunity to bring our client’s individual style to the forefront.
As designers, we draw inspiration from the past, present and future, from art, fashion and travel, and most often from the dynamic cities we call home! We love bohemian hand crafted design as much as simple modern décor, but what we really love is creating a unique combination of these sensibilities in order to produce weddings that are beautiful, innovative and highly personal.
As planners, our goal is to alleviate the stress and frustration that often accompany wedding planning. We deal with all the scheduling, paperwork, emails and phone calls so you don't have to. We offer our clients a space to laugh, smile, feel inspired, and enjoy every moment of the planning process as well as their special day.
At Firefly we are truly passionate about the art of wedding planning and finding the place where elegance meets creativity.
Can’t wait to meet you!!
