We are passionate about mentoring the new generation of women in the events industry, guiding new planners and other creatives to a more transparent and business-like environment. Earlier this year, we launched our sister brand Mavinhouse Events. Mavinhouse Events is bringing a unique approach to wedding planning with an efficient and prescriptive model that complements the lives of busy millennial couples. We assembled and continue to mentor a team of expert planners, each with a diverse background in the industry and a shared commitment to excellence. Couples are offered transparent pricing through three partnership levels, accessibility and authenticity from the start — giving them control (and peace of mind) in a way they’ve never had before. Mavinhouse Events plans and designs weddings and celebrations throughout New England, Rhode Island, Cape Cod, and the New York region.

We appreciate Brilliant Event Planning’s flexible aesthetic. Whether they are planning a romantic seaside wedding or a vibrant Manhattan birthday party, their imaginative designs never fail to impress.

Share something unique about your company 

We have offices in both Boston and NYC, which means we often have clients who live in NYC and get married in Boston (or vice versa). It allows us to do meetings in person in one city while having a team on the ground to work with the venue and vendors in the other. We also frequently plan destination weddings and are available for travel worldwide.

We excel in personalizing and branding every event to the specific client — whether a corporation or a couple. For example, there was a set of three sisters for whom we had the pleasure of planning all of their weddings — each about two years apart from one another. We’ve never done that before! Each sister has such a different personality. We created three weekends for this family that were completely unique experiences, branded to suit each couple. The most recent bride was married at the Omni Mt. Washington Hotel in New Hampshire’s White Mountains. This wedding was very rich, velvety, and calm —with fireplaces, yoga in the morning, and snow capped mountains in the distance. The middle bride married at the Four Seasons Hotel in Boston. This wedding was a PARTY with crystals, sparkle, and tons of dancing. The first bride married at the family’s private home on Attitash Mountain in Bartlett, New Hampshire. This wedding had a completely boho-chic vibe: organic, tented, teepees and dream catchers.

Whim Events pairs seamless event planning with artistic floral design. We love their devotion to florals and the small elegant details that make every celebration a success.

Throughout the planning process, it is our job to help our clients celebrate each moment of the journey — not simply the wedding day! One of the most unique things that we offer is a guided tour of the New England Flower Exchange, so each couple can curate their wedding floral design and color scheme. We call this our “Market Visit.” We do not believe in making you select your wedding flowers from a book. After 10 years in the floral industry, our co-founder Moira Thomspon came up with a unique philosophy to get to know each couple personally: take couples to the Market and show them the beautiful variety Mother Nature has to offer. She takes each of our couples to the market to curate their wedding day florals — noting which blossoms they gravitate towards, favorite shades and textures, and which blooms make them the happiest! Our couples continuously tell us that market visit stands out as one of the most fun experiences in the entire planning process. 

We also love creating at least one magical, unexpected moment at every event! Some examples from past events include: A rose bar before the ceremony, a flower crown bar for guests during the reception, pedicab rides around the venue, stunning floral installations vs. traditional centerpieces, surprise dancers to get the crowds going, even a parade led by a New Orleans style 2nd line band bringing guests around the block!
