To Be Hosted wedding services are tailored to couples that want to tie the knot in the presence of 100 guests or less, allowing us to create intimate experiences with highly personalized details. We work with you to ensure the design, menu, and music capture the essence of your love story. Whether you want a restaurant wedding, a romantic elopement, or a micro wedding celebration, we help you savor every detail.
Our offices are located in New York, and we are available for travel. We are currently booking weddings for summer and fall 2021.
Who said wedding reception food has to be boring and predictable? Not us. Our team is passionate about planning celebrations that engage all five senses — and that includes taste! Our couples are true foodies and we work with them to make sure every bite, clink, and sip is an expression of their unique love story.
We know one of the hardest (and most time consuming) parts of planning a wedding is researching, selecting, and contracting a venue and multiple vendors. Working with To Be Hosted is perfect for the couple who wants to streamline the planning experience and eliminate the stress of reviewing dozens of venues and vendors. We’ve developed two modern planning packages to cater to you.
1. Your unique love story
We’ll start by learning more about you and your partner. We will focus on understanding your love story and your vision for your big day.
2. Choosing the right setting
Once we have a clear picture of your style and budget, we will recommend venues to host your wedding. The venue selection will set the tone for the rest of the planning.
3. Aligning the details
We’ve developed relationships with top-tier chefs, caterers, and vendors to curate multiple options for entry level to high level price points. Once you’ve selected a venue, we will present a customized wedding plan, including recommendations for florists, cake bakers, entertainment, photographers, etc.
4. Beautiful & seamless execution
Once you’ve made your selections, we will work with you and your selected vendors to bring your vision to life. We will take care of all the phone calls, emails, and follow up to ensure your wedding day is visually perfect and logistically flawless.
Amber founded To Be Hosted in 2017 to help people gather and celebrate the moments that matter. Amber is a multidisciplinary event planner specializing in weddings and intimate events.

Founder Amber Mayfield started To Be Hosted when she saw a need for dining experiences that would excite and connect multicultural audiences. In 2017, she began by inviting 24 strangers to an unexpected location for a dinner party with live music and a few other surprises promised. By the end of the event, these strangers were talking, laughing, and exchanging stories like they were old friends. From this night, a community was born.
Since then, To Be Hosted has grown into a boutique agency specializing in intimate and immersive experiences for foodies. Through event services and home entertaining resources, To Be Hosted aims to bring people together intentionally, while doing our part to elevate multicultural perspectives in food and entertaining.
