I can confidently recommend that any individual or organization that is seeking someone to plan and execute an event that is unique, and enjoyed by guests should seek out Monica Relyea Events.”

Noelle Howles Guagliardo | Culinary Institute of America Beverage Manager

“Monica was truly a pleasure to work with at the annual gala for the Walkway Over the Hudson. No task is too big and no detail was too small for her. She is an innovative planner with out of the box ideas which enables her to create memorable events. As an off premise caterer it is a pleasure to work with a planner who has the ability to translate a client’s vision into a reality and these types of skills are completely natural for her.”

Chef Ed Kowalski | Lola’s Cafe & Catering

“Monica Relyea was instrumental in defining and implementing one of Walkway Over the Hudson’s most successful events—Starry Starry Night. She worked closely with me in the early stages to help create new and exciting events in a totally unique venue. Monica’s can-do attitude and ability to think out-of-the-box maximized our opportunities and overcame logistical challenges of working in a 1.2 mile narrow, linear park! Her interpersonal skills and positive approach were crucial to the diverse tasks she managed, from developing safety measures for fireworks display, to organizing a successful Guinness world record event, to hosting a farmers market and securing vendors. Monica has the ability to visualize the final result and has the talent to handle all aspects including decorating, music, photographers, landscaping and catering. I heartily recommend Monica Relyea and look forward to working with her in the future. “

Elizabeth Waldstein-Hart | Walkway Over the Hudson Executive Director

“Monica Relyea is the consummate professional. She is wonderful to work with, extremely organized, creative and a fabulous troubleshooter. We know that our event will run like clockwork and be a success with Monica’s help and guidance.”
