ABOUT US

[back to top]

A Southern California girl at heart, I moved to DC in 2006, and haven't looked back since! I have been planning professionally for over 8 years. My job is great because I am constantly connecting with fantastic people!

 I take pride in my knowledge of what's hot and new, always scouting the latest venues, trends and companies in the industry, as well as seeking out the best places to dine and unwind in DC. 

My job is to make sure that your contracts are airtight, your budgets, timelines and vendors are properly managed, and that all of the little details that go into making an event successful are accounted for, while our design team handles the creative side of things. It really is a perfect balance!

I was born and raised in New York (among other places) and I have been creating things with my hands as far as I can remember.

I have experience designing and planning both corporate events and weddings. As a multi-disciplinary designer, I have experience in everything from painting and crafting, to graphic design and sewing. I even dabble in a little wood work. 

A lot of that varied design experience gets put into what I manage here at Taylor + Hov, but my FAVORITE parts are creating your custom stationery, and pontificating on a great branding project.

WASHINGTON, DC

I was born and raised in the Washington DC Metropolitan area--Northern Virginia to be exact! I love the feeling of seeing an event come to life, after months of tedious planning. 

After graduating from Hampton University, I decided that wedding and event planning would be my life. From planning small vacations with family and friends to assisting in planning large local fundraising events, I have finally found my niche! For me, the most rewarding part is seeing the smiles on satisfied clients’ faces. 

I have a heart for people and a passion for helping others. This shows in everything that I do and I am VERY proud to continue my journey at Taylor + Hov!

Born and raised in Romania, I am a doer that will go above and beyond to put together an unforgettable event for my clients.

With a degree in hospitality and work experience in both The U.S. as well as multiple countries in Europe, My calm nature puts clients at ease while my efficiency gives them confidence that everything is being taken care of. I am experienced in managing and coordinating all facets of an event including design, planning and production, and will pay attention to every detail to make sure everything is flawless.

My experience in both corporate and social, makes me an asset to your event and The Taylor and Hov Team!

WASHINGTON, DC

Overachiever, Overtly feminine, OverANNAlytical—A young, motivated, career-driven woman with her head to the sky; headed to the top. I always try to infuse my clients’ style and personality into all events I plan. Working diligently for the past five years as a structured planner and hospitality professional in the Washington, DC area, and I have the whole hearted desire to make a personal and memorable connection with each and every client. To date I have planned over a 100 successful social, professional, community service and fund-raising events for numerous organizations. 

Growing up in Chicago, I have a love for food and adventure. My television never leaves the Food Network and I LOVE discovering new recipes. I spend my days working on long to-do lists and browsing the latest nail trends. Ever since daily deal aggregator like Gilt Group and Rue La La, I can’t stay away from the latest deal.

"We just want a simple fun rooftop party", said the gorgeous blonde with eyes-too-blue-to-be-real in a coffee shop somewhere in Capital Hill. We agreed, a contract was signed, and all hell broke loose in the best possible way. Audrey and Brian were due to exchange nuptials in May in Bora Bora and rudely had not gotten us tickets, (hehe) but there was nothing but love in the air. We had to pull together a bright, fun edgy rooftop party that completely reflected our stunning bride's personality. It was absolutely exciting to design, and despite the hurricane, it turned out perfect. (I assume because nice people have great karma?) Look below, and drool on yourself.

It was an amazing experience to fly our team to the Dominican Republic (we speak Spanish) for some much needed girl-time---I mean, a gorgeous wedding! We worked hard to communicate with the resort on behalf of Kristen and Mario's lovely family, and prepared for this overseas love adventure months in advance to ensure perfection. Then we arrived, worked some more, and had a ball bring things to fruition. We can definitely do this again! (Mexico here we come!) We absolutely loved working with world traveling photographer                             . She is HIGHLY recommended.

This was no average backyard wedding shindig! We created at least three unique, design intensive backdrops/ installations, and pulled together a ton of details for this gorgeous Virginia wedding for Kaitie and Jordan. The bride wanted lots of flowers, lots of personal detail, and a fun eclectic wedding. Her loving parents worked hard to turn their garden into the perfect venue, and we got to pick through her mothers unheard-of collection of rare and antique china and glassware to pull together the table scape and decor.                        captured this wedding for us!

Talar and Mark are two busy professionals living in the windy city of Chicago, who hired us to fly in and make their formal, classy wedding come to life. To be completely honest, The bride had us at blush and fuschia and despite, the frigid, 40 degree day, all the glitz and glam ended up being absolutely worth it! We were thrilled to be able to witness a wedding in one of the most architecturally beautiful ceremony venues we've seen and of course, to work in the historic Chicago Hilton. We got to play with Gold Foil Press on Blush Letterpress paper and loved every minute of it! What a loving family and fun wedding to be a part of! All photos used with permission from                              !

When someone as sweet and ok, I will use the word, HIP as Ashley approaches you with "can you guys design my wedding in Mexico?" the only possible answer is YES. We hopped on a plane and handled the planning for the weekend too! It was an "Adults Only Cabana" theme with dark pops of color, Gold glitter pineapples, and little fine touches added the perfect amount of pizazz.                         captured this wedding for us!

We absolutely needed to do this Industrial Inspired Shoot! Behind the couple, we propped up an old leather stretching tool circa the 1920′s and put a few flowers here and there for a shab-industrial look. The delicate flowers in between the wood and metal bars created a gorgeous juxtaposition of masculine and feminine.

The Jorge Manuel dress from Hitched Salon in Georgetown, fit our model, Amanda, like a glove!We loved Lisa (Petals and Promises) for the selection of flowers here! The little metal flower we threw in made it fit our theme perfectly and did not overpower.

Enjoy!

Lauren + Cameron are a NYC based couple who are a Doctor and Wall Street Investor respectively, who happen to look like movie-stars, with hearts of gold. They wanted something like a modern fairytale, and we tried to deliver that at the Fairmont Hotel in DC :) We collected over 250 pieces of unique blue and white china for this wedding, to offset the pale pink and coral pallette.                            captured this wedding for us!

THE MADIOUS

Brian and Eileen were the winners of a promotional event that we hosted called the Great Bridal Scavenger Hunt. Their Grand Prize was a wedding worth $50,000! It was amazing. They met at a Karaoke Bar which became a staple of their relationship; a mutual love for music and one another lead them down the road to matrimony. For their wedding theme they wanted a retro music feel and of course, we ran with it! Their invitations were definitely retro with a vintage feel, and a cassette tape printed RSVP. For their programs and menus, we collected old vinyl records and attached custom labels. It was drool-worthy. Photos by

Married at a barn venue in Montgomery County, Maryland, Suzanne and Michael's vintage rustic wedding was fresh and fun, with soft blue, cream, and vibrant pops of orange. We kept her flowers seasonal and simple, and picked hydrangea from her mother's back yard to ensure that every detail really meant something. ---And The best part?!---the hand-churned ice-cream and sorbet served after dinner.  Photos used with permission by

KATIE STOOPS

In a setting that was rich in farm history, we tied together a vision of a whimsical bride and a horse with bold, striking colors and unique accents in the wooden flower arrangements and bouquet. The brides country chic ensemble included a light summer rustic wedding dress by Bygones Vintage Clothing accented with custom DIY Jamie Slye Design hairpieces.

The outdoor reception seating area included a dessert table and his and her custom labeled beer/wine and of course DIY Apple Pie favors. A floral chandelier and authentic tables and seating helped make this a true country inspiration.

Ashley and Frankie met in high school, dated, and we had the pleasure of being involved in their wedding. Every little detail was on theme, and done in a very tasteful way, from the handmade paper plane backdrop that we had made by a close friend, to the pencil place-cards, and the locker love notes, it was a really adorable wedding. They even incorporated their sweet pup in the nuptials. Photos by

Xiaoyi + Bochen were so fun to work with! As colorful as her wedding was, Xiaoyi lacked nothing in the personality department. She wanted an Eastern Design, which spoke to her Chinese heritage, and lots of entertainment without skimping on the glittery, sparkly elements all over, so of course, we were all for it! She took our design plans, and got to work, making over 100 elaborately folded mini paper flowers and paper lotus favors with a Ferrero- Rocher chocolate in the middle.

Taylor and Hov did an amazing job for our April 2016 wedding!! Nar and Sugar were our month of planners as well as florists. Best decision!! We can't thank Nar and Sugar enough for all the hard work and details that were paid attention to for the coordination leading up to the day, the wedding, the flowers, the design. It was just perfect and everything I wanted!! 

LAUREN, DC

Sugar has been extremely attentive to our needs, from the logo design, packaging design, and now we are finishing up the interior styling part of our contract, and I have definitely had my expectations exceeded. That is rare for me :) 

CLASSIC BAKERY

We hire Taylor and Hov at least six times a year for our conferences in Las Vegas, Florida, DC, and San Francisco. We could not imagine working with another company, as our events are critical and often involve global influencers. Our design work has to be consistent, often with a fast turn-around, and we can say that their team absolutely delivers.
