Celia Mei Rubin
CO-FOUNDER & EASTERN MATRIARCH
Celia is drawn to all adventures and experiences that require significant planning and organization. Having spent many years as a Dance Captain on Broadway shows, her skills of both seeing the larger picture as well as understanding the more nuanced demands of making sure the “show goes on” have provided her with the experience to build, organize, and run events from the ground up. Celia spent a few years in between show contracts working as a wedding consultant and became fascinated with the idea of helping to create a one-of-a-kind, once-in-a-lifetime day that requires a multitude of little pieces to add up to a magnificent whole. She co-founded UNICUS. with the intention to bring couples who don’t necessarily desire a traditional wedding day, the opportunity to get married on their own terms in a way specifically crafted to them. As Eastern Matriarch, she oversees all east coast weddings, as well as lends support to the west coast team. Celia brings her unparalleled dedication and commitment to every UNICUS. client.
Tiffany Adeline Cole
CO-FOUNDER & WESTERN MATRIARCH
Combining all of her experience and passion for creating unique and celebratory spaces, Tiffany chose to co-found UNICUS. with full confidence in the company to plan, execute and deliver a once-in-a-lifetime event that makes each wedding day feel special, specific, magnetic, and true. Throughout her artistic career working in regional theater as well as on Broadway, her role as a swing, understudy, and assistant dance captain allowed her to cultivate many strengths and ideals that have easily transferred into the planning arena where she finds immense joy in orchestrating and executing the perfect experience. An intuitive skill set that has become second nature, she has the expert ability to take a concept and turn it into a fully-realized creative moment for many to share. Tiffany’s intention is to bring to UNICUS. the most integral lessons that she learned as an artist — a devotion to originality and creativity. Determination, unyielding self-resolve, and the commitment to exceptional teamwork. Ultimately culminating in a space for the collective human experience. As the Western Matriarch of UNICUS., Tiffany oversees all weddings on the west coast as well as lends support to the east coast company.
"Consider yourselves lucky to have stumbled upon UNICUS. in your search for a wedding planner. UNICUS.' approach to planning weddings makes it easy, organized, and fun (and it should be fun). I've worked with dozens and dozens of wedding planners over the course of the last 10 years in my role as a venue manager in Northern California. Celia, Tiffany, and the UNICUS. team were a joy to work with from start to finish."
