Claire is originally from Cincinnati, Ohio and has loved coordinating parties since her first event in the third grade, a baby shower for her teacher. It was at recess and it was fantastic. She grew up in the hospitality business. Her mother is a chef and through working at her family’s restaurant, creating events, weddings and day-of decor, she learned how important celebrating is. She has a degree in acting, which certainly fuels her love for people and her ability to think quickly on her feet, and she’s spent the last 10 years working in her two loves, events and art. She brings her creativity, organizational skills, detail-orientated nature and positivity to every wedding she coordinates. Her goal is to create a beautiful, memorable day for you and your loved ones. Most importantly though, she enjoys working with couples on their weddings to free them for their most important job on the day: celebrating! She currently lives in Manhattan with her hubby and sweet pup, Ella, and is thrilled to be part of Melissa’s outstanding wedding team.
