As New England's only full-service, multi-cultural event planning company, Soraya Events specializes in fusion and authentic cultural traditions from all over the world.

Raised in a multi-cultural, multi-faith home, founder Soraya Belgacem gained a deep understanding and connection with different cultures from a very early age. Both her mother, a master interpreter of multiple languages, and her father, who came from a diverse ethnic background, taught her how important it was to understand all walks of life, beliefs and family traditions. This appreciation is what Soraya brings to Soraya Events and it guides how she operates and works with couples to give them the best possible experience.

Soraya has produced weddings with roots connected to world regions including Africa, North Africa, the Middle East, Asia, South America and Europe. Her unique ability to authentically resource and create an experience that is true to the culture is what sets her apart. Soraya also provides ethnic catering which enables couples to bring together all the elements of the wedding that contribute to an extraordinary event.

- Guidance in creating events that reflect the authentic cultural tradition of the couple

Highly highly recommend

Soraya was the absolute best to work with for month-of coordination services for our fusion Hindu wedding. She was so on top of things, very responsive at all hours, and was able to deliver on our needs. She was able to problem solve a few last minute things for us including coming up with 2 solid rain plans on short notice. She was also super resourceful, understood our budget constraints, and helped us find ways to stay within that budget. On top of it all, she was easy to talk to. With Soraya on our side, I really felt like our wedding day was in good hands and that left me free to enjoy the day as the bride.

Awesome wedding planner!

We couldn't have had a better experience with Soraya as our wedding planner! We held a fusion Indian-Western wedding in Boston and Soraya was amazingly helpful every step of the way from venue tours to selecting vendors (we booked many of our vendors, including band, officiant, & photographer, from her recommendations and all of them were WONDERFUL!) and then of course all the details leading up to the wedding itself. The day itself went incredibly smoothly with Soraya running the show. She was so understanding and responsive throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a top quality wedding planner especially if you are looking to include multiple cultures!

Amazing Fusion Wedding Planner!

We are SO thankful for everything Soraya did to help make our vision for a Hindu-Jewish fusion wedding become reality! We opted for the Month of Wedding coordination package and highly recommend it for others planning a wedding (especially an Indian one).

-During the planning process, we relied on Soraya’s great recommendations to find most of our major vendors, which was especially helpful as we planned a Boston wedding from afar in Austin, TX. Although Soraya’s full time wedding planning did not kick in until 3 months prior to the wedding, she was still happy to offer vendor recommendations and meet ad-hoc to give us feedback throughout. She’s very good at understanding your preferences, but she will also tactfully make suggestions when appropriate to help improve your plan while still making sure your intentions are captured. She’s also deeply knowledgeable about Indian wedding customs too which we appreciated to help us plan appropriately.

-Once Soraya’s 3 month full time engagement kicked in, she took over handling so many big and small things in the run up to our wedding. She was wonderful at navigating all the last minute vendor, logistics, and family/friends issues that came up.

-On the big day itself, it was incredible how smooth and on time everything went! We can only attribute this to all her hard work. So many guests told us how thoughtfully planned every detail was and how much fun they had. She has a great interpersonal dynamic and clicked very well with our families, wedding parties, and friends, while still ensuring everyone was doing what they were supposed to be doing when they were supposed to be doing it.

We really appreciated working with Soraya and consider selecting her as our wedding planner to be one of our best decisions.
