Delivering the latest in style, inspiration, helpful tips and tricks, and everything else you need to know to plan the perfect New England wedding.

What’s better than one killer wedding planner? Four of them, with a combined 72 years in the biz. That was the idea behind 4Luxure, an upscale wedding collective that brings together Gabrielle Stone of Stone Event Planning, Tasha Bracken of Tasha Bracken Events, Edna Dratch-Parker of EFD Creative Event Planning & Design, and Alexis Eliopoulos O’Mara of Unique Weddings by Alexis (pictured above, from left to right). “We wanted to enable couples to easily find a collection of planners who really understand the market, who have been in the business for decades, and who understand the level of complexity in planning a luxury wedding because of that,” Stone explains.
Each of the planners has her own area of expertise—for example, Bracken specializes in destination weddings, while Dratch-Parker is an expert in all things design and branding. So when couples reach out to 4Luxure they’re matched with the planner that best fits their wedding-day style and specific needs. “You don’t need to do any shopping on [marketplace] websites,” Eliopoulos O’Mara explains. “We will take care of matching you up with the right person.”

At the same time, regardless of who they’re paired with, couples will benefit from the knowledge of every planner in the collective. Eliopoulos O’Mara and Bracken even recently teamed up to speak with an Indian couple planning a Florida wedding. “I know the Florida market, but I don’t have nearly as much experience with Indian weddings as Alexis does, so we came together and brought both of [our] expertise,” Bracken explains.

The collective, which launched at the start of the year, is now booking into 2023. And all in all, the new endeavor has felt like a breath of fresh air for the team. As Dratch-Parker puts it: “To have that camaraderie and to be able to connect with people like this has been really powerful.”
