Intimate Weddings

For couples who love food (and each other)
get hitched

Be wed and well fed

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.

Get a curated approach

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.

Meet Amber

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. She pours her passion into every detail, and loves helping couples turn their vision into a beautiful (and delicious) experience. 

Amber lives in Brooklyn with her pup Nova. In her free time, she enjoys hosting, baking, painting, and watching action TV shows.

It all started with a dinner party.

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.
