Making Events Golden

My grandmother always told my siblings and me to “celebrate everything, celebrate life”. Her enthusiasm for celebration inspired me to create Events Made Golden. Event planning in any capacity is truly my passion. I realized I first wanted to be in this business when my mother let me plan my Sweet 16 with very little help. I loved every step of the creative and logistical process and knew I would want to make a career out of it someday.

I am a graduate of Cornell University’s School of Hotel Administration with a Bachelor’s Degree in Hotel Management and Hospitality with a focus in Event Planning. I have since been in the workforce in the events industry since 2012. I have planned countless weddings (including my own in 2016), Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and other various social functions ranging from casual birthday parties to black tie affairs. I have experience planning Indian and Orthodox Jewish weddings as well. My experience in corporate event planning at The Grove in Cedar Grove, NJ includes working with and planning events for The American Heart Association, Omni Eye Services, Chilton Medical Hospital, Somerset Hills Learning Institute, Seton Hall Law School, The Foundation for Diabetes Research, Novartis, New Jersey Women’s Lawyers Association, Eva’s Village, William Paterson University, The NJ AdClub, The Salesian Sisters and many more.
