Boutique Events

Meet Jean Wade Mayer & Emily Jean Villarreal, co-owners of Boutique Events.  They met while employed at a catering company in Hunt Valley and shortly thereafter decided to start their own business together as event planners and consultants.  Jean & Emily are partnered with Gertrude’s, a restaurant at the Baltimore Museum of Art. This partnership allows them to plan and coordinate all special events held within the venue.  They also plan events in and around the surrounding area including weddings, mitzvahs, corporate functions, and residential soirees.  They are deeply rooted in the Baltimore community and enjoy giving back by serving on committees and also producing many chic fundraising events around town.  Boutique Events is a member of the National Association of Catering and Events and have spent a number of years on the board as Co-Director of Fundraising. This year they are co-chairing a committee for NACE National Conference that will be held in their hometown.  Emily earned a BS from Virginia Tech graduating cum laude.  Jean graduated from The Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College, majoring in Hospitality Management. The combination of their educational and life experiences has without a doubt strengthened their reputation and allowed them to thrive in this industry delivering extraordinary designs and one-of-a-kind experiences.
