Inspiration & entertainment for any occasion
Growing up in the small town of Niantic, CT, Colleen's passion for entertaining was passed down from her mom. For Eileen, it was always about making family, friends, and even strangers feel welcome, loved, and connected.
Colleen's dreams of following in her footsteps became a reality after she secured her masters in Higher Education/Student Affairs and began planning student events for her alma mater, Fairfield University. For 10 years she curated everything from small intimate gatherings to large-scale events for thousands of students, families, and alumni on and off-campus. Regardless of the size, every detail was meticulously organized, with a high level of professionalism and passion. From this passion, came the desire to share her talents with Connecticut families looking to celebrate special occasions without the stress of figuring out every small detail.
After getting engaged in July 2019, Colleen and her now husband, began planning their wedding for October 2020. Amid planning, the pandemic hit, and they ended up having to downsize their guest list, change venue locations and reimagine their entire weekend with COVID guidelines at the forefront. With that said, their wedding day ended up being better than we could have ever imagined.
Colleen's first hand experience, coupled with her 15+ years of event planning expertise, makes her the perfect person to assist with your celebration! Whether you’re looking to entertain a party, celebration, reunion, or wedding, Coll It Entertaining will make your dreams a reality!
