WHO WE ARE

Clover Event Co. is a boutique wedding planning company based in the Manayunk section of Philadelphia, specializing in planning, styling, and coordinating authentic weddings for modern couples.

Started in 2015 by Owner Caitlin Maloney Kuchemba, Clover has grown to include two additional full-time planners and a talented team of wedding coordinators who plan weddings throughout the Philadelphia area and beyond. Meet the Clover team below!

OUR HANDS ON APPROACH

Everything about a wedding is personal. We understand that a wedding is an investment, but more importantly it’s a celebration between two people who have found each other and have chosen to share a life together. Because of this, we feel that taking a hands on, holistic, and genuine approach to the wedding planning process is essential. We get to know our clients and treat them like family, so we can truly bring their wedding visions to life.

WHAT WE STAND FOR

Clover believes in love in all its forms. Whoever you are and whomever you love, we would be honored to help bring your wedding vision to life. We are committed to offering a welcoming and inclusive environment and providing services for all clients, with respect to race, age, color, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or gender expression. Bottom line, we love love!

CAITLIN MALONEY KUCHEMBA

OWNER + PRINCIPAL PLANNER

Caitlin Maloney Kuchemba, is the fast-talking, tea drinking, always matching lady behind this company. She’s always been an entertainer at heart and when she was younger, she knew she wanted to be a wedding planner before she knew it was a real career. After graduating with a communications degree from the University of Delaware in 2010, she became a certified Wedding & Event Planner through the Wedding Planning & Consulting program at Temple University. She has over eight years of experience in the wedding industry and has worked with over one hundred couples to make their wedding vision a reality. 
 
Originally from northeastern Pennsylvania, she and her husband Adam now call the Manayunk section of Philadelphia home. They love the neighborhood and the small business community that thrives here. When she’s not planning your wedding, she and Adam love to host their friends in their Manayunk rowhome, enjoy a glass of cider at their favorite local pub, hit the slopes on their skis and travel up to one of their favorite places, The Finger Lakes, where they got married in 2017.

JESSE LUCAS

SENIOR PLANNER + STYLIST

Jesse is a Boston native and 2009 Skidmore College graduate who now calls Philadelphia home. She and her husband Brian, got married in the Adirondacks in 2017 and highlights from their wedding included a guest appearance by two Saint Bernard puppies and a 15 minute polka dance! Being a part of making sure her couples' weddings go as planned and getting to see them deliriously happy is a privilege that never gets old to her. In her previous life, Jesse worked behind the scenes in the music industry at Live Nation in Philadelphia.

KELLIE STRAIN

ASSOCIATE PLANNER + OFFICE MANAGER

Kellie and her husband Joe were actually Clover Event Co.'s first ever clients! Kellie loves Slurpees, so we helped surprise her with one on the dance floor during the reception. She also may or may not have taken a ride on a hotel luggage cart in her dress. Wedding days remind Kellie of how special it is to find the person you were meant to be with, and yes, she'll be the one crying during your speeches and first dance. Kellie is a Cabrini University alum and worked in the financial industry before putting her skills to use for Clover.

PAM

WEDDING COORDINATOR

Pam married her college sweetheart, Andrew, at the John James Audubon Center. The two met at the University of Delaware, where Pam and Caitlin also took classes together. Pam is now continuing her education by getting her Doctorate in Physical Therapy at Temple University. She's a former dance instructor so you might see her dancing at your wedding if a great song comes on - she just can't help it!

SARAH

WEDDING COORDINATOR

Sarah is a San Diego girl living in Philly with her now husband Chris - they were married in May of 2018 and although Clover didn't go to California for the wedding, we designed her invitation, paper goods and signage so we could still be a small part of the wedding day. By day she works in commercial real estate, but her caring nature and sweet demeanor make her perfect for weddings.

HELEN

WEDDING COORDINATOR

Helen is a Main Line native living in Philly who has worked with Clover for the past four seasons. Helen brings her calming nature to wedding days along with her sharp wit. She loves working with large families because she comes from one herself. When she’s not working with Clover, Helen works as a nanny for a family in Philadelphia and as a personal trainer - her strength comes in handy!

HANNAH

WEDDING COORDINATOR

Originally from upstate New York, Hannah and her husband Josh now live in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia. By day she works in communications and graphic design, so her eye for design comes in handy when we are styling our clients' weddings. Josh and Hannah got married in June of 2017 at Fiddle Lake Farm in Northeastern, PA where they shared their vows privately in a field before the ceremony.

When she isn’t working weddings with Clover, Aisling works as an Event Planner at Susquehanna International Group and also sits on the board for Carve 4 Cancer.

BREAH

WEDDING COORDINATOR

Breah is a childhood friend of Caitlin's who puts her skills as an instructional coach to use on wedding days. She's always willing to lend a helping hand with a smile on her face. She married her high school sweetheart Bill at a casual outdoor wedding at winery in Northeastern, PA. The Clover team was, of course, onsite to make sure the day ran smoothly and that everything was styled to perfection.
