Urban Soirée was founded out of a pure love for creating once in a lifetime memories and a desire to make the planning process enjoyable and stress-free for the busy couple.
owner + lead wedding consultant
Hi lovelies! I'm Renée and I have an endless love for gorgeous weddings and cheerful clients. What started as a little dream during my high school years -- flash forward to over 9+ years of experience within the wedding industry and I still can't get enough.
I am proud to have successfully coordinated and executed hundreds upon hundreds of weddings & events in Boston, New England and beyond. Prior to starting Urban Soirée Boston, I gained vast experience working with two luxury wedding planners and as an Event Sales Manager at the Hyatt Regency Boston and a Social Catering Manager for the New England Aquarium executing dream weddings and events for high end clientele.
With an educational background in marketing, web & graphic design and public relations, I am also passionate about providing education, support and encouragement to fellow creatives through being the co-founder of Everyday Creative and the founder & host of The Confetti Hour Podcast. I truly believe in building an encouraging community and supporting fellow creatives because I would be lost without the important people who helped guide me throughout my own career over the past 9 years. In addition, I have worked on the board of the International Live Events Association - Boston Chapter since 2015 and currently serve as the VP of Communications.
During my journey as an event professional, I have been honored to receive the 2015 Best Wedding of the Year Award from NACE, CSEP Scholarship Award from ILEA Boston and I am proud to be rated #6 as Top Wedding Planner by Boston’s A-List, as well as awarded Wedding Wire’s Couple’s Choice Award 2017 + 2018.
I have a passion for traveling to far flung destinations and I am always ready for the next adventure. In my downtime, you can most likely find me at brunch with my gals, or at happy hour for $1 oysters over a glass of prosecco, or watching Netflix with my husband, Chris and our little rescue dachshund, Lincoln.
Thank you for visiting my little corner of the internet! I’d love to get to know you too! Please don’t hesitate to reach out and setup a time to grab coffee or chat about your vision for your big day!
