life is full of special occasions
from weddings to birthdays to everydays—that deserve their own equally special event.
At Soirées and Revelry we connect with our clients on a very personal level. We take the time to understand what speaks to your soul. And from there we thoughtfully craft your event with stylized, beautiful details that reflect who you are. Our clients aren’t afraid to think outside the box and are open to fun and new ideas. They want their guests to enjoy the day as much as they do. Because we are a boutique company, each of our clients works one on one with Jenn Tansley, the owner and lead planner here at Soirées and Revelry.
We specialize in intimate weddings that are hosted at unique, charming locations. Hidden gems like barns, mansions, wineries or tents make us swoon. When it comes to weddings, our mission is to create a day that is as distinctive and unforgettable as the love story it represents. From the vendor coordination to the very last dance, we make the entire planning process as smooth as possible. Leave the stress and fine details to us so that you can revel in the glow of being engaged!
OWNER, EVENT PLANNER
I’m Jenn, the owner + lead event planner here at Soirées and Revelry. This lovely little event planning boutique of mine was born (not surprisingly) out of my love of hosting events and bringing people together. As a young girl, I always loved parties. I grew up with all of my family scattered across the country and I’d always dream of big holiday gatherings.
Inspired by my passion for design and creativity, I pursued a career in fashion. I have a degree in Fashion Merchandising and Design from the University of Rhode Island along with a minor in Fine Art. After college I worked as a visual merchandiser for Nordstrom. From there, I started my own eco-friendly handbag line called Sweet Resurrection. I also freelanced as a costume designer for Post University’s theater productions for several years.
Creativity has always been my thing
but it wasn’t until a decade into my career that I rediscovered my love of event planning and decided it was time to make a career of my passion. I completed a 270 hour certification in Wedding and Event planning from the New York Institute of Art and Design. What started with a few events here and there, blossomed into a successful and growing business. In just a few short years, we have planned dozens of lovely events throughout Connecticut, New England, and beyond.
With over 15 years in the service industry, Ally Macary has a passion for event coordinating and catering. Her experience includes every restaurant position, hospitality, catering and banquet coordinating. She dreams of owning her own business one day. She is attentive to the needs of all clients and guests as well as thrives when working under pressure. She truly loves making every bride and groom's day exceptional. Ally loves cooking and feeding the ones she loves. You can find her t raveling with her husband, food blogging or making all of the things in her shiny new instant pot!
When it comes to event planning
I love all of the beautiful details
But at the end of the day it is all about the people. Helping people is my passion. I work one-on-one with every single client here at Soirées and Revelry. I am humbled by the graciousness and praise of the clients that I’ve had the pleasure to work with. Seeing the smiles of my newlywed clients, when they reflect on how special their day was, is a daily reminder that I ’ve found my life’s calling. I am inspired every day by the things I love most: spending time with my husband Scott, our crazy toddler Logan, and our pup Moxie. I also have a love for travel and discovering new places. And I simply cannot live without iced coffee, leggings, and my Tory Burch ballet flats.
Simply stated, we are here to help you celebrate life’s moments. So no matter how big or how small, if you have an upcoming soirée that could use a little sparkle, let’s get coffee and chat.
