Jessica - CREATIVE DIRECTOR

As a lifelong creative, Jessica started the Spark Group to combine her love of design and event production. Growing up in the catering industry and working as a set designer has given her unique perspective on how to plan a truly memorable event.  With a BFA in Theatrical Scenic Design from SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Theatre Arts and Film, she is one of the few event planners to create all of her own original décor. 

Like the theatrical backdrops she once designed, Jess knows how to set the scene for her events to showcase the personality of her clients and meet their needs.  She prides herself on understanding her clients’ vision and using her many talents to make big moments out of small details.

Jessica was voted best party planner by Westchester Magazine and Westchester Wunderkind by 914INC.  Her design work has been showcased in Grace Ormonde Wedding Style, Westchester Wedding Planner and Style Me Pretty.

On her off time, you can find her traveling the world, reading Architectural Digest, cuddling on the couch with her husband and two children, or making Target runs with a large cup of coffee. 

Jessisms:

1. Rules are made to be broken.

2. Laughter is the best medicine. 

3. Awesome lighting is the icing on the cake to any great event design.

4. Coffee first.

5. Inspiration is all around us; we just have to open our eyes.
