Over the past year, I have had the privilege to assist several weddings and photoshoots and plan different styled shoots with a countless number of vendors in Eugene and Los Angeles. The main takeaway that I gathered was that it is so important to create relationships with vendors in order to be successful as a wedding and event planner. Having a certain level of professionalism and making sure vendors know that your job as a planner is to support them throughout the event is of utmost importance.Read More
As a wedding and event planner, I have learned to be prepared for any issue that may arise. This skill definitely comes with practice, which is why I believe assisting other planners is so important to gain that valuable experience. Troubleshooting is a huge part of this job, and it becomes easier when you are always on your toes and aware of what is happening, or should be happening, at all times.Read More
As I begin blogging about what I have learned about wedding planning over the past two years, I want to start by saying how my experience at LVL Academy not only taught me everything I need to know within three days, but it also inspired me to reach for my dreams and taught me how to do so in the most elegant way possible.Read More
I am so excited to announce that I am planning a wedding styled shoot with my good friend and fellow wedding planner, Angelica Caluza from Anela Events. We have been working with an amazing vendor team (listed below) to put together something simply beautiful. This is my first styled shoot and one of the biggest planning experiences I have had the privilege to work on. I feel blessed to have the support from all of these vendors. We designed this mock-wedding to have a romantic and rustic feel, while still remaining elegant. The shoot is set in a beautiful forest, and our choices of rentals are classic and simple. Angelica and I were inspired by many things when choosing the design and color palette. The mix of blue tones, ivory and gold against the classic wood furnishings and forestry around us, provides a picturesque display, I cannot wait to share with you. We chose clean, white flowers to add a pleasant contrast to the dark, lush, forestry. We are truly astounded by how pleasantly everything is coming together.Read More
Love is the reason I want to do what I do, so why not display it on my wall?! Above my bed, I hang a banner that says, “Love is patient, love is kind.” It is a constant reminder of my beliefs and what I truly value most in this world, the people who I love and a career that allows me to spread love. I try to remember these words every day as I walk through life. This is my motto in my business, relationships and life! To me, being patient and kind are the best ways to show love to someone, and I try to practice this regularly.Read More
