ABOUT THE OWNER
Welcome - I'm Bethany! I own this wonderful little business called Something Pretty Events. This company started as most do, after doing this work for years under the harness of others I finally made the great leap to venture out on my own. Something Pretty Events is a wedding planning and design company with a goal to harness the power of emotion to make your most important day less stressful and more beautiful, no matter the size or scope.
I grew up in a small town in rural Maine and after graduating high school I attended Hollins University, an all-women liberal arts college in Virginia. The passion for events started with my very first event planning internship in NYC working for Estée Lauder in marketing and events and stuck with me ever since. As a first generation college student I joined the Army National Guard while in school, and I ended up spending nearly nine years serving.
After graduating and running events in Portland, Maine for an event planning company during my twenties I moved to Western Massachusetts with my wonderful pup, met my partner and began curating my long-term dream of owning my own business.
Now, the years have flown by and I have been running Something Pretty Events for over five years. When I am not planning or executing events you will often find me wandering the woods with my dogs, Grafton and Beau, getting lost in the newest true crime podcast, tending to my garden, or maybe getting a new tattoo.
My ultimate goal is to simplify the planning process and help to guide you through the challenges of planning your wedding with a sense of humor, hint of sarcasm and a smile. I am here to ease the stress, after all.

ABOUT our lead planner
Hello, I am Gianna! I started working for Bethany as an event assistant during college over two years ago now and quickly fell in love with weddings and events. While attending Eastern Nazarene College studying Marketing with a minor in Communications I gained a background in business and hospitality management. Now I am thrilled to be a full time part of Something Pretty Events!
I grew up in Quincy, Massachusetts where I still live today and where the vast majority of my family still live as well. I come from a large Italian family, and we are incredibly close. I believe that's a large part of the reason I fell in love with weddings in the first place. Being part of such a large loving family has shaped my life, and helping people start their own journey and begin their lives together is very close to my heart.
In my off time I'm a Taylor Swift fan, and in love with everything Disney. I grew up going to Disney, and still arrange my minimal vacation time around Taylors tour dates and annual Disney trips. I've been out of the country twice, both on Missionary trips to Honduras and Costa Rica. I have an adorable grumpy cat named Phoebe who is a light in my life. I am also engaged to my best friend and high school sweetheart and will be married in 2024.
I am here to help make planning your wedding fun and prove it does not have to turn you into a ball of stress. I aim to provide a calming presence on your wedding day so that you can float through the day knowing that you're taken care of. Looking forward to hearing from you!
