Our Story

Well hello there. We are Andrew Roby Events your Washington, D.C. wedding and event planning company. What has made our events magical over the last 10 years, is our ability to listen to our clients and create an experience based on your personality and style. Events and weddings will always be about you. We give you the meticulous attention to detail you deserve. You don’t compete for our attention, but we certainly compete with vendors and venues to ensure you get the absolute best.

Whether it’s a conference, a LGBT wedding or a fundraiser to aid a local charity, we pride ourselves on building experiences that are surrounded by the love we have for our clients. We believe that you are our family and just like we want to give the world to our moms, we want to give that same treatment to you with custom made services to fit your needs.

We are a boutique event management company which means we limit the amount of clients we take on to eliminate being overburden and decreasing our quality of service to you. Our clients are busy professionals running big DC businesses, socialites, and sophisticated couples who don't want added stress in planning their events.  As D.C. Event Planners, we are entrusted with creating everlasting moments and that’s exactly what we plan to do.  There is never anything more important to us than your event or wedding!


GET EXCITED!! My name is Andrew Roby and I absolutely love to have FUN! I cannot tell you how excited I am for the chance to do what I love. I feel like every single day is a blessing to be able to create events that make people happy. Certainly not every day is a walk in the park, but it certainly is a dream come true.

Born in Miami, Florida, I've had the privilege of seeing first hand how people work hard and yes party until the break of dawn. Being an Army Veteran who has held such titles as Soldier and Non-Commissioned Officer of the Year, I know just how critical each mission and in this case events, can be to excecuting them with pride and perfection.

I like to call myself an Event Storyteller because it allows me to truly understand why each and every client wants to plan an event or get married. I'm also a world traveler. I've been to 17 different countries allowing me to better understand different cultures that represent the clients we serve.

Within my career I have had the honor of working with brands such as The CW, Simon Malls, The Art Institute, Northern Virginia Magazine, The City of Alexandria, VA, Vita Coco, Kind Snacks, and Honest Tea, to name a few.

I've also had the chance to work with some tremendous companies like Susan G. Komen, The Cinderella Foundation, and So Others Might Eat who dedicate their lives to helping the homeless, those struggling with cancer, are care takers, are single parents, and many other things that makes them so brave. It's these clients that I fall in love with ten times over. My 13 years of event experience is grounded in helping other small business owners WIN.

I can't wait to begin working with you soon. Schedule a call here so I can hear your ideas.
