Abby Carson

Event Manager

Abby was born and raised in the Midwest, but considers herself a woman of the world. Her favorite destination, so far, is Porto, Portugal but she is always on the hunt for her next great adventure. Abby enjoys incorporating family traditions into a wedding while finding ways to create new memories with her couples. Abby loves espresso and hates beets. She's going to keep trying with the beets, but she makes no promises.

Chrissy Dwyer

Chrissy Dwyer

Event Manager

Chrissy hails from the great state of Michigan (Go Green!) but followed her taste buds to Chicago. The moment the weather warms up, you'll find Chrissy patio hopping in search of the best Aperol Spritz. Chrissy loves to bring fun ideas to life and is an expert at balloon drops and confetti cannons. She has a mean drive and will always regret not bringing her clubs with her to Ireland. If you have some time and need a good laugh, ask Chrissy about her nieces.

Leslie Fuller

Leslie Fuller

Event Manager

Born and raised in Chicago, Leslie returned home after a stint in New York City for culinary school. She still misses New York-style pizza and bagels, but the Windy City has her heart. Leslie believes the best gift is finding someone the perfect greeting card, and, as such, cherishes creating small, memorable moments just for her couples. Leslie believes the worst gift is a box of oranges. Why, you ask? Because she has never, and refuses, to eat an orange. Believe us, we've tried.

Kiran Pinto

Kiran Pinto

Managing Partner

Kiran is a middle child which she believes explains most everything about her. She never met a food she did not like and will travel anywhere a train, plane or automobile will take her. Kiran loves a challenge which is how she found herself in the restaurant business. The interest began when her parents told her "no, you can't do that for a living" and wound up being a passion when she realized every day presented a new and exciting challenge coupled with bountiful food.

Brittany Pflug

Brittany Pflug

Operations Manager

Britt's claim to fame is her uncanny ability to make our wildest event dreams become a reality. The answer is always "yes" and Britt will figure out the "how" in the blink of an eye. She loves a challenge and finds pleasure in making all of our guests smile. When she is not at the Ivy Room, Britt is thinking about the Ivy Room and puppies. She would love to get a puppy.

Genna Kuypers

Genna Kuypers

Catering Assistant

Genna is an incredible listener and takes pleasure in helping to masterfully execute anyone's vision. She firmly believes the devil is in the details, so she fashions herself an event vigilante. Genna is a skilled at home cook and jumps on Zoom calls with her mom and sisters to recreate family recipes. When weather allows, Genna explores the city with her dog Roux in search of the perfect negroni.
