Blossom Events is a full-service event planning team bringing events to life in and around the greater New York area.
Formally known as Midtown Event Coordinator, we started out working at a wedding venue in Manhattan, watching brides and grooms flourish and flounder. We quickly realized that even if you enjoy planning, it makes a world of difference to have a fresh eye, someone who can be a soundboard, catching details that are completely overlooked and pulling everything together. We started to blossom as clients wanted us more involved earlier on in the process and appreciated our special touch that most designers and decorators lack: we know the logistics of how an event runs, the problems to avoid, what's succeeded and what fell flat. Thus, Blossom Events, well - bloomed.
Whether you've been working on your dream wedding for months or just started Googling "how to plan a bat mitzvah," you've decided you'd like some professional help. Someone who is on your team. You get expert advice and assistance for every other major life event.. shouldn't you have it for what is likely to be the biggest celebration of your life?
We love being this expert teammate. We can be as involved or on the sidelines as you'd like. This is your day. It shouldn't be anything but what you want. We want to offer innovative ideas and creative input, but also simply guide you in the right direction if you've already got the ball rolling.

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by.
I'm excited to meet you in person, but in the mean time you should know: I'm a coffee drinker and a meditator, dog person, a bit of a control freak at moments, on an indie improv team (a sense of humor and being on your toes is a must in this industry).. and one of my favorite things about my work over the last few years is learning how my wedding clients met. I'm a sucker for a good story!
And of course, I love... love. So cliché, I know. But whether it's marrying your best friend, throwing your daughter's 16th birthday party or celebrating your company's 50th year in the biz, I think it's pretty exciting I get to help others celebrate life surrounded by their favorite people. I've become friends with most of my clients (I've even received baby shower invites from a bride!) because I get to know you well enough so I can not only bring your unique vision to life, but make it personal to your journey. To be able to bring all of the pieces - the ideas, dreams, planning, details and people - that go into this one day to make sure it runs smoothly is pretty amazing. And most importantly, I want you to be able to do nothing but enjoy your special day. You leave the rest to us.
I'd love to hear your thoughts, dreams and ideas. Ready to blossom? Let's chat.

Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, I never thought I would love any city more than my own hometown. My passion for life, however has taken me all over the world, and landed me right here in New York City. In the city that never sleeps, I had no trouble enjoying my favorite things: good wine, good food, good company, and, not to be forgotten, my babies (loving mom to three dogs).
When the time came to plan my own wedding, picking New York as the location was a no-brainer. My love for details throughout the entire process made me realize it couldn’t be the last wedding I would get to plan. I tend to like my husband, and won’t be planning another wedding for myself... so enter you all. My wedding was the best day of my life, and I can accredit that to the people I had around me, that made each moment go as smoothly and flawlessly as possible. I find that I am happiest making others feel that same way.
With experience in fine dining and non-profit organizations, from corporate to social, I am versed in planning all types of events! And one of the best parts of planning an event in New York City is the limitless possibilities to make each event personalized and unique… and fun!
I can’t wait to help you start planning your event and I know that we can create something beautiful together.
I am a Cortney without a “u”! A rare New York native by way of Nashville and back again.
I have always loved that feeling you get right before the curtain goes up..
The nerves, the excitement, the heart bursting joy. I found myself getting that same feeling every time I worked an event.
I loved it so much that I strived to be a self declared “guru”, immersing myself into each aspect that goes into the day.
With over 5 years of experience coordinating, catering, working with florals and design, as well as a small stint singing with a wedding band..
There is nothing I haven't seen!
I am “that girl” that want’s to talk for hours about every big idea and small detail you’ve envisioned. This is my joy and passion.
It gives me no greater pride than giving you the day you always dreamed of. I can’t wait to work with you!
Hello! A little about me before I get the opportunity to meet you...
After 10 years in the city, I have earned my New Yorker status and am extremely grateful for the many opportunities I have found along the way. I have worked in the service industry throughout my time in the big apple, but growing up with two parents in the industry, my excitement and attention to detail started when I was very young. I have always been drawn to an event because you must be there, in that moment, to truly experience it.
My love for live theatre, dancing, good coffee, good wine, and my passion to connect with people and be a part of something special comes to life when I work an event. I find joy in the many special moments I help create and the incredible people I meet in the process. It is an honor to share in your special day.
Greetings! Before we have the pleasure to meet, here is a little about me.
I was raised in the suburbs of Miami, FL, but decided life in the city was my true calling. I have a love of everything vintage, flowers, delicious food, and chic ambiance, to name a few. On my leisure time I enjoy entertaining at home, catering to family and friends.
I have professionally and passionately been involved in the events industry for 5+ years. I also have a real drive for culinary arts. Thus, my love of good food and food styling took an interesting turn when I enrolled and successfully completed a culinary and catering program.
My passion for planning and events began after years of watching my mother plan and execute birthday parties, graduation and communion receptions, etc., so effortlessly. Not only was she a great cook, but her organization, attention to detail, and way with vendors were remarkable. Those are just some of the skills I would get great joy in incorporating on your special day.
I am happy to share my experiences and passion with you. To ensure your day dazzles.
Look forward to meeting you!
Love is Love is Love.
That’s what a couple’s special day is all about, and I’m thrilled to be a part of it!
“Full of heart” is what I have delicately tattooed on my right forearm, as a reminder to approach every aspect of my life with passion and energy - giving everything I’ve got. Be it ordering a latte and connecting with my barista, hitting that last exhausting rep in my workout or giving way to the magic of dancing as though no one is watching, it all comes down to that magnificent beating muscle in our chest - the heart. That’s why the wedding & event industry and I, go together like a really enthusiastic dessert lover on just about any form of cake, ice cream or chocolate. It just makes sense, and tastes so darn good!
I can’t wait to meet, and begin the journey that is all about celebrating YOU!
Until then, love & light.
