On WeddingWire since 2021
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?
Allyson & Monica

Simply the best!
On our big day, Monica, Allyson and Cassidy made sure the set went smoothly, all the vendors arrived and that we were in the right places at the right time. The three of them went above and beyond to take care of us and our families. Throughout the event they took fabulous photos and videos to ensure we had amazing content to look back on and remember the day. The content was perfect for sharing the moments on social media.
Monica and Allyson were born to plan events! Look no further when searching for an event planner. In the words of Tina Turner… they are simply the best!

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 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!
