Bespoke Wedding Planning & Design

SANTA CRUZ | Monterey | Carmel | BIG SUR & Beyond

That's why I'll do just about anything to ensure your day is flawless and fuss-free.

Beyond detailed to-do lists, color-coded spreadsheets and picture-perfect tablescapes, I'll spend over 100 hours making sure no ball gets dropped so you can actually enjoy your wedding and your engagement.

I want you to wake up and say,
"Let's do that again!" not "Thank God that's over!".


Get ready for a smooth, seamless & relatively stress-free experience thanks to my three-phased approach to planning.

What You Can Expect


I'll use my experience to anticipate and avoid curve balls. And I'll make plans for uncontrollable things like the weather. As the day approaches, you'll oversee guest needs while I handle timeline and vendor management. Together, we'll manage a master plan that ensures everything comes together flawlessly.



We'll visit your venue, design the flow and discuss any decor you may want to upgrade. Then, we'll visit the rental company and play with decor. When it's time to order items like napkins and signage, I'll share a decor checklist and guide you on what you do (and don't really) need.



We'll begin by talking through the storytelling of your wedding. Then, I'll curate a list of trusted vendors and off-the-beaten-path venues that are sure to bring your ideas to life. Once you've made your selections, I'll review their contracts and manage their needs so you can simply sit back and enjoy.

We'll discuss not just how you want your wedding to look, but how you want it to feel. Then, I'll connect you to fully vetted vendors that match how you want to experience your day. And because many of the best-in-the-business are friends, I'll have them on speed dial.

It doesn't matter how beautiful the flowers are if your guests can't find the food. So, I'll help you articulate your vision, review your Pinterest boards and get inspired by your ideas. Then, I'll visit your venue, design the perfect flow and guide you on decor decisions that are pretty and purposeful.

Design a beautiful experience, not just beautiful decor

We'll have scheduled calls to talk through anything that is keeping you up at night, and we'll set up a group text so you can easily check in with questions or completed to-do's. And because our team takes on a limited number of events each year, I'll be available practically any time you need me.

Resolve any questions or concerns in *almost* real-time

“I felt like once the ceremony began, we didn't think about anything planning related the rest of the evening. I am still looking back and smiling about our day, grateful that we got to spend quality time with our loved ones.”
