WEDDINGs & events 


For the past fifteen years, Vanessa has worked in several areas of the event industry, and as an esteemed and featured wedding planner for the past five. Her events have been featured countless times, and she has experience producing red carpet events, movie premieres, corporate events, and trade shows. Very quickly, Vanessa found her passion for planning weddings and fell in love with watching people be in love and unifying their families. Vanessa’s adoration of weddings is exemplified in her work as she is involved in every detail, and works persistently to translate her client's vision into a reality they could not have dreamt up themselves.

who we are

We look forward to getting to know you and would be extremely honored to be a part of your special day!

Vanessa’s compassion enables her to listen to her clients and act as an advocate by standing up for what they want no matter what. Vanessa works tirelessly to create sentimental and special moments for a couple and their loved ones and to give them the most extravagant day of their life with none of the stress. 

Weddings are about celebrating life and creating unique and lasting memories. Vanessa does this by "planning through the senses,” or “branding” the wedding using detailed components like specific scents or a memorable song that will forever remind the couple of their special day. She has an incredible eye for detail and design and believes that these small elements are what can create long-lasting impressions on couples and their guests. Vanessa’s overall vision is to not only bring her client’s dreams to life but to then take those dreams to new heights and create an experience the couple will never forget.

Vanessa loves sports and was a Division 1 softball player at San Diego State University. She’s passionate about dancing and met her husband salsa dancing! (One of their favorite activities to do together). In her free time, Vanessa enjoys yoga, cooking for her husband, and cheering on her favorite team, The Dodgers. The two have an adorable pup named Pumpkin who can always be found snoozing next to Vanessa’s desk (or in her lap!). She’s an enthusiastic lover of all things pink and pretty but loves nothing more than time with her family. Vanessa is a devoted romance enthusiast who can easily handle any situation, any personality, or anything imaginable thrown her way with class, precision, and impeccable hospitality.
