Meg studied International Relations at The University of Connecticut but the hospitality industry always called her name. From her first day as a bridal attendant at The Riverview in Simsbury to joining the team at Infinity Music Hall and Bistro, Meg enjoys creating meaningful relationships with those around her. She prides herself on saying “yes“ to her clients, anticipating their needs and following events through to the very end. Combining her love of history, events and the outdoors, Meg has the opportunity to direct The Wadsworth Mansion not only as one of Connecticut’s premier wedding and event venues but also as a community resource and cultural landmark. When not walking the trails or planning a new event, you can find Meg, her husband and their German Shepherd, Mayla, exploring Long Island Sound and hitting every raw bar on the shoreline!
Jessica HessDirector of Events
Jessica began working weddings at the beginning of the 2013 wedding season as Event Supervisor. Her knowledge of Mansion weddings extends even further as she was a Wadsworth Bride herself in 2011. As Director of Events, she works with every couple from the moment they book to the day they say “I do“ and she loves that when it comes to weddings at the Mansion, no two are alike. She takes the time to get to know each couple during their planning process and helps them with the big (and little) decisions that make their wedding day memorable and unique. When not working at the place she loves, Jessica is with her other loves; her husband and three beautiful children. Jessica is always on hand to answer questions and is happy to do what it takes to ensure a beautiful Wadsworth Mansion Wedding!
