Hi There, I’m Emily!
I hail from a small town with lots of charm called Lancaster, Pennsylvania where my family owns and operates an award-winning wedding venue, Riverdale Manor. Growing up around events has afforded me the opportunity to develop my skills from a very young age; how many other wedding planners can say they have been folding napkins for events since the age of three?!
Eventually the beauty of the San Francisco Bay Area drew me in and I moved on to manage one of the Bay Area’s most popular (and obviously one of my favorite) wedding venues, The Mountain Terrace. There I oversaw all aspects of over 180 + unique events that range from traditional cultural weddings to “May the 4th be with you” Star Wars themed weddings.
After planning many large corporate events, I realized I was missing out on one of my favorite aspects of events – making an amazing couple’s dream wedding come true. From this and combined with my unique passion for magical places, stunning visual elements, and pulling together all the details Folklore events was born!
