About Emily

I’m a grown-up theater kid who loves to put on a show!

I’ve been “finding my light” my entire life, and I find absolute joy in creating that experience for my clients on their special day. Emily Monus Events was born from a tiny spark that was cultivated when I planned my own wedding in 2013. I relished every minute of it – every detail that I planned, every checkbox that I ticked, and then making it all come together – and realized I had quite a knack for it. I also noticed there was a huge gap in the wedding market for LGBTQ+-identifying wedding coordinators.

In 2017, the universe gave me one of the biggest blessings of my life: I was laid off from my corporate job. It was then that I realized…that gap that I saw in the wedding industry? It was MY size. Also? I got back on stage again performing with a community theatre group. It’s been a blissful season of creativity ever since…I truly have never felt more like myself.

I am a proud member of the LGBTQ+ and Vegan community. It is important to me that I create a space where non-traditional love can not only be celebrated but advocated for by working with inclusive and LGBTQ+ identifying vendors.

My portfolio of fun includes everything from baby showers, weddings, and non-profit galas. I approach each and every event with the same excitement and enthusiasm, with the strongest desire to execute your vision perfectly.

We loved having Emily as our LGBT Wedding Coordinator. From A to Z, Emily had everything covered for us so we didn’t have to worry on our wedding day. She has a friendly and professional demeanor with the guests and made everyone feel at home. In a big event, a lot can go wrong in a moment. Emily made sure that didn’t happen, in fact, she made everything go right.

      • Laughing is my jam. If we work together, we’re going to have fun!
      • I delight in developing and refining workflow processes.  I spent 10 years perfecting a corporate client feedback process before launching my event planning business. Now I spend all my time perfecting my own!
      • Donuts are the best.  I will die on this hill.
      • Rainbow sprinkles.  Always rainbow sprinkles. 
      • I can sing.  Like for real sing.
      • I only eat plants.  
      • I can walk really fast for being only 5’2″.
