When a New England event planner meets a New England wedding florist...
We are a political production dude and a wedding planner-turned florist-turned event designer. We look at our events from two different angles. Kate (KM) designs inspiration boards, sketches out the vision and hands it over to Chris (CM). Chris looks at the sketches, listens to Kate’s ideas and builds the sometimes almost impossible for their clients. An added bonus? Kate and Chris got married this August (2016) and they worked on designing their own intimate wedding together.
Design and execution working together seamlessly. That’s what Malloy Events does.
Of course, it doesn’t hurt to add in years upon years of experience. Chris just successfully helped produce the NH Primary 2016, working with many of the candidates for both the republican and democratic parties, but mainly focusing on Hillary for America and Bernie Sanders for President. Kate has planned and designed over 500 weddings, including events in New England, Seattle, and even St. John and has worked with celebrities and politicians to plan their special events. Her work and expertise has been featured in numerous national wedding magazines.

Kate (KM)- creative director/floral designer
New England Wedding Florist
Kate started her wedding planning and event design company back in 2003 and specialized in planning and designing over 500 destination New England weddings, although her team planned weddings as far away as St. John and Seattle, WA and spent many summers on both Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard. She had the honor and pleasure of working with celebrity clients such as Daphne Oz and Sam Huntington in addition to many high profile clients throughout her career. She has been featured in numerous national wedding magazines including Martha Stewart Weddings, Brides Magazine, Seacoast Weddings, People and Us Weekly.
Known for never getting flustered at an event, Kate has designed weddings on islands in the middle of Lake Winnepesaukee in torrential rain storms and has created almost 100 floral centerpieces in the middle of January on one of the coldest days of the year when flowers freeze from being outside for three minutes. She over prepares for each of her clients' events, having a plan B and sometimes C that are equally beautiful and effortless as Plan A. Kate works with the very best vendors to create stunningly designed and flawlessly executed special events.
Kate is the creative director of Malloy Events and manages the “soft goods” arms of the business, focusing on weddings, corporate and social events, and all things floral and event design. She is also a mother to Zachary “ZP” who wants to also become an entrepreneur when he grows up, and the Dog-Mom to Louisa, who is also knows as Cow Dog.
NICK (NICHOLAS)- associate technical director
New England event lighting
While at the ripe age of 19 Nicholas fell into the world of lighting and sound almost completely by accident. He was originally hired as a videographer/ photographer but that quickly changed. His first event was on his birthday where he started off by taking photos and shooting video but by the end of the night he was behind the light board learning the ropes. He attended Plymouth State University and received his degree in Communications Film and Media studies.
During his time at PSU Nick was known for his love of its radio station 91.7 WPCR Plymouth. Where he would hold executive positions for all four years in which he attended the university. He believes that whenever you are working on something it is important to double and triple check all aspects every step of the way. Being someone who likes to learn and try new things the term “Jack of all trades” can be applied to him quite easily.
When he isn’t working or freelancing Nick can be found right in downtown Dover or along the seacoast taking photos of his new found home or listening to live music wherever he can find it. He is currently in the process of building a small recording studio in his home for local artists to come perform and build their discographies.
