About

Hey you. We're Arch Events. Thrilled to meet you.

Arch Events was started by two wildly extroverted, fun-loving gals who found ourselves working in the events industry through unconventional, inadvertent routes. Once we had a taste, we were hooked on the beauty, passion, excitement & grit that makes up every moment of the planning process.

At Arch Events, we aim to turn the rigid, often stressful process into a playful, creative & collaborative endeavor. We know that each client is unique, and therefore, each planning process should be too! Our goal is to keep it real with you, share a few laughs and a few drinks while creating an unforgettable experience from the moment your initial consultation starts until the DJ announces the final dance. Ultimately, when you book with us, you’re booking with friends.

So, what do you say? Meet you at the bar?

xx,

Allyson & Monica

    Arch events made my vision a reality, and then some!

    The ladies from Arch are quite the dynamic duo! We worked with Monica as our lead month-of-coordinator but spent time with Allyson day of. Whichever leading lady you chose you will be in good hands. Here's the thing about wedding planners - you want someone who can both support you in your vision, but also bring you back down to earth and tell you when you are going overboard. I had a VERY specific vision, and I was VERY involved in planning everything along with my now husband. Monica never made me feel bad about being overly specific with her and our vendors - she encouraged it. When I received some custom items for my wedding I questioned if they could "be better." She brought me right back down to earth with a resounding "are you kidding me - they're gorgeous." Monica worked tirelessly coordinating and staying on top of every vendor - even suggesting two which we ended up booking - and who ended up being incredible! Our band and celebrant. In the moments I was very indecisive, Monica was decisive - and I appreciated that. I wanted her opinion always - and she gave it. There were a lot of moving pieces during our wedding - and it was a big outdoor venue. Monica must have run a marathon the day-of. But she was always calm when we talked throughout the wedding day and night and always had a smile on her face. Allyson must have run back and forth to our hotel three times for items we forgot - even driving our dog Harbor back after our cocktail hour! The night didn't end up for them when we left our venue - they packed all our items up from the wedding and dropped them off at 1am at our hotel. What I love about Monica is yes, she is great at her job, but she is equally a wonderful person. She is the kind of girlfriend you want in your corner through anything. They are both young, ambitious, hard-working women. The kind you want to support - and hire! We are still on Cloud 9 from our wedding day - and I am so happy Monica was with us throughout the entire process to lift us up, 'make it nice,' just celebrate us. I am already dreaming up what other events we can work on together.

    Best decision we made for our wedding

    From the initial phone call with Allyson at Arch Events, we knew we were working with someone special. From helping us figure out our color scheme/design, to asking us about what our biggest fears were for the wedding (and then doing everything to make sure those things didn't happen), Allyson covered her bases and did so in a warm, effusive way. You can really trust her recommendation and relationships with vendors. She's detail-oriented, and also sees the big picture in a beautiful, cohesive way. Our wedding day was everything we wanted and more, and that's largely due to Allyson's expertise and good sense of humor. The team that she works with is excellent--thank you to Monica and Sarah who were so instrumental in making the day of go smoothly. We've been telling all of our friends with weddings in their future to hire Arch!

Team

Allyson Horn
Allyson Horn
Co-Owner

Allyson originally hails from Reading, PA, but her love of all things New York started at a very young age. She began her career in large-scale event production, serving multiple seasons on the producing team of events such as Billboard’s Women In Music Awards, The CFDA Awards, The International Emmy Awards & The American Theatre Wing Gala, amongst many more.

In her years of event production, Allyson has had the honor of working with celebrities such as Rihanna, Ariana Grande, 50 Cent, Jesse J, Pharrell Williams, Aretha Franklin, Tori Kelly, and countless others.

From the minute Allyson stepped onto the set of her first production gig, it was love at first sight so to speak. She was struck by the magnetism, the beauty, and the palpable energy that drives the events industry. From there, she moved into food and beverage management where she honed her skills in vendor communications and her love of a well-balanced cocktail before transitioning into the catering industry where she fatefully met Monica and the idea of Arch Events grew.

When she’s not nose-deep in wedding designs, you can find Allyson performing onstage with the singers of Guilty Pleasures Cabaret or whipping up custom cakes and cookies in her Manhattan kitchen. A Taurus woman through and through, Allyson is driven by a harmony of passion and creativity.

Monica O'Connor
Monica O'Connor
Co-Owner

Monica has always been drawn to events and hospitality. Maybe because her family was always hosting parties, or because she grew up working in hotels and restaurants in the Hamptons. Whatever the appeal, she found herself in the wedding industry by accident, and a happy one at that. While working as a radio DJ, a hotel concierge, and a myriad of other odd jobs, she was presented with an opportunity to join a high-end wedding planning organization in East Hampton, NY. The rest was history.

She was first drawn to the beauty of it all, but she quickly fell in love with the logistical aspect of things; how planning a wedding weekend is a dance in which the planner is always two steps ahead. It’s challenging and exciting, and it keeps her sharp. And even though the Hamptons are home to her, NYC was always in the cards for Monica. In 2019, she made the move westward and into the catering industry, where she met Allyson—perhaps another happy accident!

Monica currently resides in Astoria, Queens. When she’s not tweaking a timeline or learning to master the art of social media, she is writing poetry, hitting a Vinyasa flow on the mat, or binge watching Law & Order: SVU with a glass of nero d’avola in hand. She has two pups who she adores, Molly & Harvey. And for those astrology lovers out there--she’s a Scorpio Sun, Scorpio Moon, Capricorn Rising, so you know you’re in wild, driven, passionate and hardworking company!
