Tell me a little bit about your business!
Irie Event Design is a full-service event design and coordination firm based out of Pittsburgh, PA. With combined backgrounds in fashion, event design, hospitality, and the music and entertainment industries, my design-driven team specializes in creating purpose-filled experiences that bring your individual style to the forefront.
Irie is here to understand your vision, elevate your ideas, and ensure everything comes together cohesively and seamlessly so you and your guests can be present to journey through your day and to soak up the heartfelt moments, all in a beautiful experience that is distinctly you.
We pride ourselves on building genuine relationships with our couples that last far beyond their wedding day. It is our desire to be a part of not only your commitment to one another, but all the milestone celebrations to follow. Our goal is to create a space where you can laugh, be inspired, and most importantly feel supported throughout your wedding planning journey!
What makes your work unique?
Definitely my passion for this business, my gratitude for each of my clients, and my attention to detail. I eat, sleep, and breathe my clients’ weddings. Each of my couples are so special to me and I genuinely love spending the time getting to know them (happy hour, anyone?!) and giving them the attentive and one-of-a-kind experience that they expect and more importantly, deserve. I believe that my passion and dedication shine through in my work.
What is your ideal client like?
My ideal client is a laid back one who wants to walk through the planning process in partnership – someone who not only trusts Irie to understand their vision, but allows Irie to elevate it. I believe that what sets apart a good concept from a great one is allowing all the vendors involved the creative freedom to explore the idea in their own unique way (of course, within the agreed-upon concept). Trusting the vendors that you hire oftentimes leads to the most breathtaking results and the most memorable guest experience.
How do you work with couples to bring their wedding dreams to life?
Through meaningful design. By fully immersing myself in my couples’ love stories and diving deep into the energy behind their vision, I am able to curate an experience that is undeniably them. Together, we explore each concept at a time. From space planning, lighting, florals, entertainment, down to the smallest details, each selection is a representation of who they are. Together, these elements make up the big picture vision and the wedding of their wildest dreams!
When it’s time to execute, my team and I are the first on-site and the last to leave, ensuring you, your family, your guests, and all vendors a seamless experience and a day we guarantee you’ll want to relive a million times over.
