Our Story

8 years ago we had a friendship meet cute (Wedding Planner + Venue Manager so crazy about each other they share hundreds of weddings over the span of a few years) and a LOVE connection began. It was only a matter of time before we saw to it that we got to work together on the daily. 4 years in, it’s still a perfect match!

Riley Loves Lulu is a new name for a seasoned pair of planners (formerly And Something Blue Events). As our partnership has blossomed we decided to take on a new name to represent our pairing– not unlike many newlyweds we have worked with! We each chose a name close to our hearts and married them with the sweet newness we still feel for every wedding we plan. We LOVE that the names are interchangeable with the names of all of our darling couples!
