began her event planning career in New York City at Teen People magazine, where she established herself as a focused, dedicated professional who worked tirelessly to ensure every detail was perfect.
In 2004, she joined an elite team within Time Inc. on a special project for Real Simple magazine called "Get Organized New York." It was the largest event-boasting the highest media attention-in Time Inc.'s history. The team, co-chaired by Sarah Jessica Parker and Caroline Kennedy, built an enormous retail location in Central Park where participants shopped gently-used designer clothing and housewares.
After her stint at Real Simple, Adrianne landed her dream job at In Style magazine, which had just launched In Style Weddings. She worked from coast-to-coast, planning such high-profile events as the Golden Globes After-Party, Inside InStyle, the magazine's signature shopping event, and the InStyle Bridal Party -featuring David Tutera, Peggy Post (one of Adrianne's idols), and Preston Bailey. At In Style, every decision was made by first asking: "Does this fit the In Style brand and does this make sense?." Adrianne applies this philosophy to all of her events.
In 2006, Adrianne accepted a role as the Director of Special Events for the New York City chapter of March of Dimes, where she raised the fundraising portfolio from $2.5 to $3.4 million. The events she managed ranged from an exclusive sample sale with Michelle Smith, founder and designer of Milly, to the venerable New York Beauty Ball, hosted by Vanessa Williams. She also implemented a Tiffany & Co. sponsored golf outing, and the Signature Sports Luncheon honoring athletes Andre Agassi, Danica Patrick, and Cal Ripken Jr. Her proudest accomplishment was reinvigorating the 20-year-old Gourmet Gala into a chic dining experience that granted guests exclusive access into the kitchens of New York’s Per Se restaurant. Adrianne worked directly with famed Chef, Thomas Keller to treat guests to a one-of-a-kind experience.
Since moving to Columbus, Adrianne broadened her portfolio, adding social events and weddings to her repertoire.
Owning her own business fulfilled a lifelong goal for Adrianne. She loves her clients and her projects, and feels fortunate to pursue her passion daily—making events perfect!
