What’s in a name?
We are named after Emily Brontë who wrote our favorite love story of all time, and whose once wild and abiding courage inspires us daily.
Kristin studied art and English in her undergrad at the University of New Hampshire and has a master’s degree from Antioch University New England. Her strong eye for design and merchandizing has taken her from manager of one of New Hampshire’s finest galleries to web editor of eleGALA.com and senior editor of GALA Weddings magazine. Kristin strives to provide each client with exceptional personal attention while bringing their exclusive event, celebration, or love story to life through unforgettable details.
Chelsey splits her time between Dickinson college, where she double majors in both English and Art, and New London, New Hampshire, where she shines as our creative assistant. During a summer spent as our intern, Chelsey’s natural design and event management skills revealed themselves and she became our superstar. We’re so grateful to have her permanently join our team next summer, and after a year spent abroad in England and Italy we know she will have an abundance of exciting energy to bring to our creative process.
In addition to her passion for medicine (she’s currently in school to become a physician assistant, and we’re oh-so-proud of her), Elisabeth studied art in her undergraduate at Colby Sawyer College. She brings a unique, focused creativity to our wedding design, and after spending countless summers working in her aunt’s florist shop in Sag Harbor, New York, and two years managing a florist shop in Ludlow, Vermont, she has a sixth sense when it comes to floral design. She and Kristin work closely for a seamless wedding design from start to finish.
With a background in painting and interior styling for her own company, Your Best Nest, Jennifer’s impeccable eye for detail is essential to the by emily b. design process. She takes Kristin’s big ideas and makes them possible; there is no vision she can’t execute. Jennifer transforms seemingly simple objects and décor concepts into creative and unforgettable moments. She has a knack for noticing that which might have gone unnoticed and making it truly memorable.
Whether painting, baking, or building a sailboat, Kali is our general jack-of-all-trades, and as the manager of a seaside bakery and coffee shop, she knows a few things about cooking up a sweet treat. From scones to cupcakes and tasty signature cocktails, Kali is our go-to girl for all things palatable. She often whips up a batch of homemade wedding favors for Kristin to package up and deliver to a bride. Her creative eye and endlessly upbeat energy make her an essential part of the by emily b. team.
