The Luxury Wedding Planning Dream Team For New York, Greater Washington D.C. Area, And Beyond 

If you're the kind of couple who wants a stunning wedding, worthy of a magazine feature... we're your planners. 


As a musician, former professional corporate event planner, and Director of Respiratory Therapy who manages teams for a living, Farah brings meticulous organization to Spectacular Affairs, an eye for stunning design, and a beautiful mix of problem-solving, thinking on her feet, and empathy to her couples and their families.

"I always think, if I'm amazed –– imagine how the bride and groom will feel when they walk in. It's incredible. You've dreamed of something -– you've worked for a year to bring it into the world, and then it just takes your breath away."
