Plan your best group event in Richmond, VA
Celebration Connections is a boutique Richmond-based event styling and planning company that serves fun and fresh events, one connection at a time!.
The owners of Celebration Connections, Taya Jarman and Jeanice Stewart, started formally "connecting the details" in 2007.
Taya Jarman, one of the planners, has been the voice of the event planning column Taya's Take for years in the Richmond Times Dispatch. The column featured event planning tips, etiquette guidance, and vendor suggestions for hundreds of Richmonders. As a Weekly Celebration columnist, she provided ideas and help for Richmonders such as frantic brides, clueless maids of honor, and introverted best friends.
Celebration Connections prides themselves on creating unique, "out-of-the-box" events and themes. They typically skirt away from commercial themes (i.e. Mickey Mouse, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle) to create memorable visions as unique as you and your situation.
Past themes include a Black & White – JT Suit and Tie for a 5th birthday party, OTR (On The Run) Beyoncé for a bridal shower cruise, Real World for a bachelorette weekend, a Preppy Boy Silhouette for a 3rd birthday party, a Kate Spade-themed 30th birthday party, UNO for a first birthday party, and Wizard of Oz (There's No Place Like Home) for a Reunion Banquet for Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. They planned and executed the first wedding at Centerstage and have planned getaway parties and weddings as well.
Celebration Connections will also create and incorporate event hashtags, i.e. #JessicasOTRcruise or #Bates3030Celebration to allow guests to keep up with festivities and to follow up after the party.
For DIY-party planners without the time to create all of the custom decorations, Celebration Connections offers an inexpensive "Celebration in a Box". Celebration Connections creates personalized elements for a theme and will ship or bring them to your party.
After the first contact, Celebration Connections sets up a meeting in their office, or they can come to you. After the consultation, Celebration Connections will send a proposal that outlines fees and services rendered.
Once a client has secured services, Celebration Connections provides an inspiration board and additional phone or email support as needed.
Other services they provide include event photography and wedding director and day of staff.
