NY Wedding Maven was created by Ali Barone, celebrity home improvement expert, veteran event designer and owner and creative director of Ali Barone Events. Ali started off her career in design and planning as a set designer for film and television before making her way onto the small screen as a cast member of TLC’s “While You Were Out”. Ali soon found herself traveling the country making over rooms for unsuspecting homeowners and attending various speaking engagements to help encourage and inspire people to make their spaces more unique and beautiful.

Upon completion of filming Ali was introduced into the world of event design and the rest is as they say history! She has had the honor of conceptualizing, designing and creating over 250 weddings in the NY metropolitan area as a head event designer at the venerable, Diana Gould Ltd and has taken that experience with her to launch Ali Barone Events and nyweddingmaven.com. She has had the opportunity of working with some of the best, brightest and most trusted wedding professionals at many of NY’s most fabulous locations. NY Wedding Maven’s goal is to inspire, guide, and simplify the planning process for all beautiful, bride’s- to- be with helpful tips and tricks, a weekly blog, inspirational ideas, visual delights and links to the very best in the business.


Happy Planning!
