SERVICES

All Inclusive Weekend
 

This is the perfect package for out-of-state couples! Whether you're traveling to New England or looking to book a destination wedding, this covers it all! From rehearsal dinner to post-wedding brunch, this packages assures you a stress-free weekend

Full Design + Planning
 

Not sure where to start in the planning process? With this package, we work with you every step of the way!

From building your color palette to cleaning up the venue at the end of the night, we'll make the planning process super smooth + enjoyable!

 

Partial Planning
 

 This is our most common package and I like to think of this it as hiring your own personal assistant! With this package you'll take the reins as  the primary contact for your vendor team but we'll keep you on track while providing endless guidance and direction throughout the entire planning process. 

 

Custom Installations + Signage

Interested in having a custom installation piece or signage for your upcoming event but not sure where
to begin?

Let's start with a quick conversation to develop your color palette, size + budget range.

From there, we will
develop a few digital renderings for you to select from before creating the final product!

Once the final product is complete, if it's an installation piece, we'll install it directly on-site for you if it's signage we can mail directly to you!

CLIENT LOVE

"Thank you so much for everything you did to make our special day so perfect! Neither Will nor I could have thought of a more perfect day. We were both very impressed with venue itself and how easy Rachel made the planning. We've received a number of compliments about how beautiful everything was set up. My mom and I were both very appreciative of how everything was taken care of for us, even the day following our wedding. From the time of our booking to our wedding day, we truly appreciate all of your work and dedication! "

- Kate & Will

Rachel A. Johnson

Hello, my name is Rachel Johnson, the master mind and proud owner of Odyssey Event Designs,LLC providing coordination and design services to the greater New England region.

 

My goal has always been to take my clients' dreams and turn them into a reality. No matter how far fetched or elaborate their ideas may be, these are the challenges I thrive on. 

I'm continuously on the lookout for new designs, potential venues, decor inspirations, and a thousand and one other details that will help to enhance my clients' visions. As I take a genuine interest in my clients and their lives, I work side by side to design an event that will express their individual desires and distinct personalities. 

I welcome collaborating, and/or brainstorming sessions with open arms, so please feel free to reach out and let's get crazy together! 

A brief insight into how I found myself living the dream designing weddings and events:

With over seven years of experience in the hospitality industry and a degree from the State University of Buffalo in Hospitality and Tourism Management, I ventured out to further my knowledge and received my certificate as a certified wedding planner. Upon receiving my certification I began working within various high end facilities; one that still holds a dear place in my heart, The Mansion on Delaware Avenue. This beautiful high end facility set my standards high right from the start and from there my career had only just begun. To follow my career path click the button below.
