Hello, Darling!
I'm Hillary.

1. More truly is merrier. 
2. Life is too short, celebrate everything.
3. A home is to be filled with love, laughter and champagne.


My love language is...

I wholeheartedly believe...

As part of your family throughout the planning process (and beyond), we are here to field any questions you may have. We act as your Alexa for anything and everything - from addressing stationery to Spanx recommendations. We have a guy or a place or a solution for everything…and if we don’t, it won’t stay that way for long.

As we plan and manage deadlines, we aim to keep joy at the center of our process. We believe that wedding planning does not have to be stressful. It can be a time that brings you, your partner and your family closer together. Marriage is a big deal and the celebration to honor such commitment is a big investment. We honor that by making it an experience from start to finish…not just on the day of your event. Now let’s pop the bubbly. We have a wedding to plan!

your story is our biggest inspiration.

The foundation for each wedding or event is the investment in our relationship with our clients. This is paramount to all aspects of our job: the design process, how we approach challenges, and our ability to confidently make decisions on behalf of our clients in the heat of the moment.

joy is the center of our process.

We hold our clients' trust in high esteem and invest in them personally and professionally, just as they invest in us. 
With your story as our anchor, we create celebratory experiences shaped by reflective design and heartfelt intention. We want your guests to leave the event saying, “That was SO them!”

"From the moment we began our wedding planning journey, Hillary and her dedicated team went above and beyond to make our special day unforgettable. Planning a wedding in St. Louis while residing in San Francisco presented its own set of challenges, but Hillary helped us navigate them with unparalleled grace and expertise. Her genuine approach to getting to know us on a personal level made us feel not just like clients, but like family... If you're looking for a team that is thoughtful, creative, and truly invested in making your wedding day as unique and beautiful as you could only hope, look no further than Hillary J Events..."

"Hillary helped make my 50th Birthday one of my very favorite days ever! What I wanted most for my birthday was to have a super fun and special night with my dearest FRIENDS and family! She helped me bring the Central Perk to life in my own backyard. And when I told her I wanted to serve frozen slushies and amazing donuts she knew just who to call to make it happen! I had the best time working with her--she is so creative and attentive to every detail and absolutely loves to create the perfect celebration! Five stars are not enough!!"

“I knew before getting engaged that I wanted Hillary to plan my wedding. Hillary adapted to every twist that planning and re-planning a wedding in 2020 threw at us and managed to pull of the most perfect day I could ever have imagined. Her positivity and creativity never cease to amaze me. Not only is she a fantastic wedding and event planner but the most kind and thoughtful person as well!”
