A Note on Love

Our goal is to create an experience that leaves couples feeling valued, loved, and celebrated regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, or religion. Marriage is the most beautiful commitment, and it is a privilege to walk alongside you and your partner.

About Emily

A few things about me: I graduated from Hope College in 2016 with degrees in Business Management and Religious Studies. I went on to become a Bridal Consultant at Spring Sweet, where I furthered my love for all things floral & bridal. I later worked in facilities & planning at Steelcase in Grand Rapids, where I fell in love with space & event design. I adore making new recipes with my husband, curating our home, and personally believe every day should include dessert. I am passionate about bringing people together, curating beautiful spaces, and helping couples' visions become a reality.

Origin of

"The Connolly House"

When I began this process of starting my own event planning business, I was asked by a good friend why I wanted to participate in the wedding industry. After processing her question, I realized my real "why": I want to help create weddings & atmospheres where people feel celebrated, cherished, and at home. This vision of both beauty & comfortability is why I named my business Connolly House Events, after the legacy my sweet mother (pictured here on our wedding day) built in our home on Connolly Drive.
