Friends for over 30 years, Hope and Alyssa have been to more parties together than they have separately. Born and raised in Central Pennsylvania, they have always been inspired and influenced by nature. Both women grew up with beautiful gardens and families who taught them about flowers, plants; encouraging creativity and a sense of curiosity.
After graduating from The Pennsylvania State University, Hope and Alyssa moved to New York City to work in Event Planning for International corporations. They traveled extensively, producing events all over the country. Hope planned events for Lord Abbett, a financial firm and Alyssa, for Champagne Veuve Clicquot and O, the Oprah Magazine and others.
In the blink of an eye, they got married, had five children between them, and moved to the New Jersey suburbs.
HopeLyss Romantics was created as a culmination of their shared love of florals, styling and of all the tiny little details that make up a successful event. Hope and Alyssa believe that life is beautiful and should be celebrated. We look forward to getting to know you!
