ANNE THOMAS

Lead Event Designer

Anne graduated from the University of Delaware with a degree in Fine Arts, and has always been passionate about making beautiful things. Over the past 6 years she has worked as a Display Artist at Anthropologie, where she has honed her skills in one-of-a-kind, handmade, DIY creations on a budget. After designing her own wedding, Anne fell in love with making customized signs, games, escort cards, floral arrangements, (and even a life-sized paper swan!) to make her own vision come to life, so it was a natural jump into the Wedding Design business to help make other bride's fantasies a reality as well. Anne has a mental encyclopedia of how to use ordinary materials to create extraordinary artwork, and is constantly striving to come up with ways to creatively approach any wild idea a bride might have. The DIY projects never stop for Anne: in her free time, she can be found fixing up her new house, an old row home in Fishtown, that she and her husband Matt recently purchased.

Jessica DeMaio

Interior Design Consultant

Jessica's passion for interior design started early, constantly rearranging the furniture in her childhood bedroom - and even ask for hardwood floors as a high school graduation present. As an interior design consultant for Q|A, Jessica focuses in satisfying both the wants and needs of our clients while keeping in mind their personal taste and budget. Attention to detail is her specialty and she loves the challenge of hunting down a great bargain to find exactly what she needs. 

After maintaining a DIY blog for years, Jessica still craves a good hands-on project, but creating beautiful spaces is her true passion. She understands the importance of comfort and functionality in making a house feel like home. 

When she’s not grabbing a beer with her husband Jordan or running around with their girls Lucy and Mila, Jessica is most likely tackling a project or working on a room in their own home.
