Caitrin & Scott – Cayucos Creek Barn Wedding, Cayucos

There are so many reasons why I became an event planner, but there is only one that makes me the happiest. You know what the best, and I mean, THE BEST thing about creating weddings? Getting really awesomely in love (down-to-Earth) clients.

I don’t mean that in a cheeseball way, but have you ever met a couple and you just KNOW. It just clicks and you say, “Wow, I get it. Everyone gets it – they are the real deal.”

I think as we get older, we realize that there are so many different kinds of love. Some are passionate.  Some are respectful. Some are just down right egotistical. Then you see THE ONE that is so beautiful you cannot help but cry when you witness the vow exchange.

This is Caitrin and Scott. They are in love beyond this world and the magic of their happiness totally came in waves throughout the day, embracing everyone that came to be a part of their union.

Amanda & Mitch – Cambria Pines Lodge Wedding, Paso Robles

keith_324-2471790368-OWhat I LOVE most about Amanda and Mitch are their cool and very down-to-Earth personalities. I think I am genuinely blessed because a majority of my clients are just awesome all around – in style and personality. It really makes designing weddings so much fun and this was no exception.

When Amanda told me that her main colors would be white, orange and silver – I was in heaven. I immediately had electricity up and down my spine because color is AWESOME. The bolder, the better! Put that against white – BOOM – now we’re talkin’!

Amanda wanted a very classic and elegant feel, yet very crisp, clean and with just the right hint of vintage. In most occasions these are very distinct and different styles, so much care needed to happen in order to get the right balance. Check out the amazing video below!

We transformed Cambria Pines Lodge’s banquet room into a deee-vine wonderland of lush and flowing white organza with enough fabric to cover the length of a football field (I kid you not). The effect was a dreamy and romantic setting that brought warmth and elegance.

Sandy & Michael – Zenaida Cellars Wedding, Paso Robles

When I first spoke with Sandy, she had mentioned that she and Michael were busy lawyers in the midst of a case. Their wedding would be centered around family, friends and relaxation because these were what mattered the most, to them. It was so easy working with Sandy and Michael because they were so laid-back and quite open. Sandy gave me 6 things and I had to run, run, run – location, caterer, purple, roses, candles and children.
Purple has always been a touchy color for me. Like so many bold colors, it is one of those things where there is no middle. It can either sway very elegantly or Velveeta cheese-platter. We don’t do cheese in our book – no thank you.
