Aribella Events is a boutique full-service wedding and event planning and design firm, serving Chester, Delaware and New Castle Counties, including Philadelphia, Hockessin, and Wilmington. Aribella specializes in long-distance planning and weekend weddings, offering a full range of services from invitations, favors and gifts to design, décor and detail management. An Aribella Event is not merely about the location and logistics; it’s about creating a connection, a legacy – the legacy of a love story.
Aribella Martin received a letter from her young suitor, written December 22, 1815. "My Dear Aribella," the letter begins, "I hope the time will come when we shall see each other face to face without the mediums of pen and ink..." As Aribella is my grandmother’s great-grandmother, I have now been charged with the care of this frail and faded letter, which captures my imagination and stirs the eternal romantic in me. I don’t know who the young man was, I may never find an image of he and Aribella on their wedding day or know the “rest of the story” - but I know there was love. I know this letter meant enough to her that it was passed safely down the family line thru events that shaped our country and even the world, from before The Civil War, thru both World War I and World War II, even the current wars in the Middle East and beyond - and yet this story, this legacy of their love story, remains.
In many ways, I consider the honor of joining you in planning your wedding as rare and intimate a gift as caring for Aribella’s letter. Tremendous care must be taken to listen attentively, particularly to that which goes unspoken. To fully “get” you as individuals and as a couple. To weave your style and personality seamlessly throughout the details of your wedding. To honor tradition without being traditional. To create a connection, a shared moment with your friends and families.
The love story is yours already. Let Aribella create the legacy.

Tonia was absolutely amazing! The first time my (now) husband and I spoke with her, we knew it was a perfect fit! She understood exactly what we wanted and took the pressure off of us. It was great to have help and the knowledge that she provided. She was perfect, our wedding was amazing and (despite some untimely rain) it was beautiful. She introduced us to most of our vendors and each was one was just as perfect. Thanks, Tonia!!Sent on 06/03/2018

Here's the simple truth - we wouldn't have had our wedding at all without Tonia and her staff. She created a magical wedding for us in a very compressed timeline (like three months). And it was executed flawlessly, and Tonia did it with grace at every step. She took our very specific ideas around food, decor, ambience, mood, everything and made it a reality, and was our positive cheerleader along the way. Her support, confidence, and ability to get things done, quickly, made our wedding a reality. We are extraordinarily grateful to her, as our guests, who told us it was one of the best weddings they'd ever attended.Sent on 01/04/2016
It was wonderful working with Aribella Events on Garrett and Priscilla's wedding at Rosemont Manor in April. I appreciated Tonia's attention to detail, and that she was able to manage all of the moving parts leading up to the big day while remaining so friendly and easy to work with!
Tonia is one of my favorite people. She is a joy to be around and loves what she does!
Tonia is an exceptionally great planner. She is dedicated, hard working, and efficient - the backbone of the event. Her creativity, drive, and attention to detail are what set her apart, plus she's just plain fun to be around! We love working with her and we know you will wonder how you could have possibly done it without her!
