We are passionate about creating one-of-a-kind experiences that reflect the true essence of our clients’ individual personalities.

We approach each event with the production and installation knowledge that has been built over years of hands-on experience in entertainment, floral design, event styling, event production, food and beverage, and hospitality.

The daughter of Bob & Gail Levine (founders and owners of Bob Gail Special Events), Allyson is no stranger to the event industry. Fluent in four languages, her travels overseas have broadened her perspectives on style and culture. While in New York, she learned the importance of hospitality by working for renowned restaurateur, Danny Meyer, at Union Square Hospitality Group. Studying with the VP of the James Beard Foundation in Italy, Allyson developed a love for food and wine. Now, ten years in the making, Allyson is an event planning guru, known for her keen sense of style and expertise. She loves textured flowers, custom paper goods, and decor with a personal touch. Above all else, Allyson prides herself in transforming each experience to reflect her clients’ unique personalities, all the while allowing them to be guests at their own affairs.
