Our Background

It started with a love for all things wedding, grew from experience in non-profit event planning and fused together to create the best job on earth. Pemberley Events will help you create an event that is well-organized, on-budget and drop-dead gorgeous. We love the unique and bow to tradition only when it makes us happy. As lovely as weddings can be, the details can become overwhelming. Even the most creative and organized of us can get carried away. Let us take some of that stress off of your hands. With a little professional help, your engagement will be one of the best times of your life.

Natalie Moran Parrillo is a graduate of Washington University in St. Louis with a BA in Psychology and Political Science.

On the side, she worked as an assistant at Kehoe Designs and happily helped to assemble gorgeous and outrageous floral arrangements, light millions of tea lights and carry pipe and drape. She also worked at the Paper Source where she was able to play with paper every single workday. While planning her own wedding, Natalie created her blog i heart peonies and moonlighted as Miss Peacock on Weddingbee.
