Tammy truly is the embodiment of the mansion. Her entrepreneurial journey started in her early twenties when she opened her own nail salon in Newton. After a few years, she was introduced to the events industry and worked in custom event linens. It was on one of her event installations that she fell in love with the Commander's Mansion. Years later, she even got married here!
Tammy has been at the helm of the Commander's Mansion since 2005. She will manage your event from beginning to end with kindness and a touch of sass. When she's not at the mansion, she is a mom to a teenage son, is an affordable housing advocate in her hometown, and loves to travel.
Gina's life has always been surrounded by weddings. As a teen, she worked in the studio of a wedding photographer and attended Syracuse University earning a degree in fashion, with a focus on bridal gowns. After school, she began her career in the bridal industry by working at the historic Priscilla of Boston in 2006. In 2013 Gina decided to leave fashion combine her fabric knowledge, and love for weddings to help design events for a premier New England event rental company.
After taking a bit of time off to start a family, Gina found a home at the Commander's Mansion in 2019. You will find Gina trying to make even the most nervous couples relax with some punny jokes.
