When a New England event planner meets a New England wedding planner and 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.
The Malloy Events Team
Rachel Neubauer (The Wizard and/or Triple Stack)- director of operations/AV
Rachel joined our team in the beginning of 2019 and changed the way we design all of the lighting for our events. She brings years of experience from the theater world in both sound and lighting skills as well as the ability to work with Sean in our shop to create one-of-a-kind stage designs for our larger corporate conferences. She works closely with Big Sean’s team when it comes to staffing plans, packing plans, and basically dazzles us every day with not only her insane talents but also some of the most ridiculous sayings and quirks that we have ever seen.
Sean Jaillet (Big Sean)- production manager
Sean joined out team in the beginning of 2019 and has taken over all responsibilities around our truck pack and unpack process, building anything and everything our design team can dream up including ramps and stairs on site at events for last minute client requests. He is a skilled manager of our shop team, an incredible carpenter, and even dabbles in lighting installations for our large-scale clients.
Leah Frasca (Pandas)- floral designer and event planner
Leah has been an on and off team members for Malloy Events since its inception as Chris Malloy Events in Nashua, NH! She recently joined our team full time after working in Boston for many years and has been tackling some of our major clients, managing our staff on sites, and working with our floral team. Leah also likes to add a bit of boho style to the events we design, along with a sense of fashion that can’t seem to be found elsewhere. Her natural ability to work with clients made her an easy addition to the team.
Atonna Siemens- floral designer and director of adding sparkles to everything
Atonna comes to the Malloy Events team all the way from Nebraska. Her and her husband live in NH now and Atonna has a background in interior design and cake baking which at Malloy Events means she’s the perfect addition to our floral team. She has a natural ability to create our large-format floral pieces, carry extremely heavy pieces of our equipment without batting an eyelash, and adds sparkle to everything she can. I mean everything. She’s our holiday decor guru, sparkle president, and nicest person on our team, by a mile.
Sean Scully (Little Sean)- A/V associate and hard goods manager
Sean joined our team in 2018 and has quickly become the all-around Malloy Events crew member. You’ll find him in the truck loading our furniture, creating floral designs, working with our lighting team, or installing boxwood onto everything.
Emily Tebbetts- office administrator
Emily is the glue of Malloy Events. Period. She works with everyone on the team, makes sure we have trucks ordered, payroll is filed, invoices are sent, contracts reviews, proposals line up with both teams, all new equipment is ordered, keeps Kate and Chris and Rachel very sane and is all around an incredibly essential part of Malloy Events. Rumor has it that she can even stand in as an awesome LED robot if needed.
Melissa Juliano- UNH intern
Melissa joined us in February of 2019 and has taken over as the best intern we have ever had in the history of Malloy Events, Chris Malloy Events, and Kate Parker Designs. She has jumped right into the team, working with our soft goods team on flowers, helping to organize our weekend schedules when we have multiple gigs on multiple days, has coordinated vendors for some of our clients, and has even set up lighting completely solo for a few political candidates.
