Mayflower Venues: A High Impact, Consumer Facing, Tech Startup

The Mayflower Venues platform and event planning toolkit empower couples to create truly customized events using blank canvas spaces that reflect their values. These events in turn help to preserve the unique, open spaces (farms, family estates, orchards etc.) across New England. All team members are given the latitude to build, test and develop the processes and products they think will create the best experience for customers. You will be part of a fast moving and high impact role with lots of room to learn, grow and lead — working directly with our CEO, Head of Platform Operations and Head of Platform Technology to develop new products and shape future strategy of the company.

Veronica Armstrong

Head of Marketing

Veronica is all about authenticity in wedding planning. She and her husband got married in Burlington, Vermont at their favorite place: a school bus turned restaurant that serves the best hamburgers on earth. She believes that a couple’s personality and should be the focal point of a wedding and spends her time at Mayflower ensuring that we connect our perfect couples to their perfect venues. When she’s not obsessing over all things wedding, Veronica enjoys traveling with her husband and two kids.

Casey Fish

Venue Sales and Success Lead

Casey has always "loved love" (as corny as that sounds)! She graduated from Endicott College with an Hospitality & Event Management Degree and went right into wedding planning at a premier wedding venue. Wanting to learn a bit more about sales, Casey went right into B2B Sales at Wayfair (yes- with Wesley!) and then was able to land her dream job at Mayflower that tied together both her love for weddings & sales. Now, Casey is in charge of partnering with nontraditional wedding venues all over New England - bringing couples exclusive and customizable venues so they are able to have the wedding they've always dreamed of!

Kelly Overstreet

Head of Platform Operations

Kelly is what Mayflower likes to call their “creative wedding guru!” She comes to Mayflower with 13 years of professional large-scale event planning experience where she loved unlocking the creativity of each unique client. Kelly thrives on building strong customer relationships and is driven to enhance each customer interaction with streamlined support and superior service. She is wild about the outdoors, and whether hiking, biking, snowboarding, or surfing, you can be sure she’s checking off her next adventure with a smile on her face!

Wesley Ripley

Head of Platform Technology

While most of us were playing tag, Wesley was learning everything and anything tech! Coding professionally since high school, Wesley graduated from WPI in 2013 and was hired at Wayfair where he handled everything from leading a product focused team, to developing features such as their iconic “idea board” from scratch! Wesley brings experience with large scale websites, e-commerce, and customer centric development and is pumped to make it easy for couples to find unique venues, plan their weddings efficiently, and celebrate in an authentic way.

Sam McElhinney

Chief Executive Officer

Sam, a lifelong New Englander, loves to hike, fish, and spend time with family. He brings six years of sales and marketing experience from his time at Google along with degrees from MIT’s Sloan School of Management and Dartmouth College. When he is not camping, skiing or otherwise outdoors, Sam leads Mayflower’s marketing and sales division where he can apply his love of land to preserving open spaces across New England.
