The Company

The outcome

Dozens of dinner and cocktail parties, purchase of a Bucks County weekend home where we can entertain even more and the birth of Williams-Sossen Events in Philadelphia.

The result

We became go-to planners for New Yorkers getting married in Philadelphia and its environs. Our forte was producing customized outdoor weddings built from the ground up.


We work the same way planning weddings full time in New York, with every event starting from a blank page. We focus on NYC weddings from our Lincoln Center apartment and Hamptons weddings from our beach house.

But the most important thing to know about us is that we have a passion for planning fabulous wedding celebrations and focus on maximizing our clients’ aesthetic and achieving the perfect party no matter how big or small.
