I am inspired by creative people, interior design, new restaurants and fun spaces. I love warm beverages, new friends, parties and always strive to have a fresh bouquet of flowers in my house.

My favorite place to relax would be in the sun, on an exotic beach.
On September 13, 2008, I married my best friend Travis and it was then that I knew I wanted to plan parties and enjoy the excitement in weddings for the rest of my life.

My favorite part of a wedding day is to see our clients faces light up with JOY and excitement. There is nothing better!

People often tell me that I'm a crazy combination between creative & extremely organized, which makes me believe I'm in the perfect business of creative planning.

I'm looking forward to meeting you!

Born and raised in southern California, I couldn't imagine a better place to live, work, and play. As the oldest of three siblings and thirteen grandchildren, I've led, explored, planned and trail blazed quite a few family excursions. Although my leadership skills started at a young age, it wasn't until three years ago I discovered my passion for event planning. It was June 30th, 2007 when I married the love of my life (all six feet and four inches of him) at the beautiful Hotel Del Coronado, and during this process of planning my own wedding, I realized I wanted to get married every year… to the same man of course! Damon and I met at Westmont College in Santa Barbara. He was a senior, I was a freshman—it was a Fairytale "robbing the cradle" of sorts. Santa Barbara was and continues to be my favorite place in the world; it's beautiful and holds many special memories for me.

My husband and I now live in San Diego with our three year old... Golden Retriever named Stella. Besides spending time in my beloved threesome family, there really is no better way to spend my day than reading and gleaning all the creative ideas and works of art from fashion, photography and design blogs. I live for creating and designing… it really is all about the details. My dear friend and business partner, Ashlyn and I take great pride in making every wedding personal and unique for each couple. We thoroughly enjoy coming alongside our brides and grooms and helping make their dream day a reality. Let us make yours a reality too!
