Caitin & Nathan 8/9/19

Ceremony: Alcazar Garden in Balboa Park Reception: Brockton Villa (Restaurant Buy Out) in La Jolla Caitlin sent me a text message three months before her wedding. She was referred to my by a close friend. She had begun planning her wedding but needed help securing final vendors, creating the timeline, ensuring all details are considered, floor plan designation, and day of management. I hopped right in and began planning! Caitlin was so happy to have someone to defer details & planning to since she was in her first trimester and having...

Brittany + Ryan – 6/29/19

Brittany & Ryan got married at Humphrey’s Half Moon Inn on Saturday, June 29, 2019. Everything about this wedding was a wonderful experience for me. Brittany & Ryan are both wonderful but I mostly worked with Pam, the mother of the bride. Pam is one of those women who could be easily compared to an angel. Pam is truly the sweetest woman I’ve ever met. She’s also intelligent, successful, hard working, and a very involved and caring mother.  Brittany had a modern rustic vision for her wedding decor. We...

Britt + Sam – 7/13/19 CA State Beach Wedding – Cardiff Reef

Britt & Sam had inquired with Megan Joy Events through Wedding Wire but then we never heard back from them. It wasn’t until three weeks before their wedding that they followed up saying things fell through with their coordinator and they could use some help with planning. Of course we jumped right in and got to work. For the last 52 years Brittany’s family, starting with her grand parents had come to San Diego every summer to camp for a week at San Elijo State Beach in Carlsbad. Brittany...

Kenna + Jason – 7/13/19 Green Gables Estate

Kenna was actually the first bride for 2019 that I booked. She was recommended to Megan Joy Events from a past bride. A few weeks after booking her, she called to let me know that her venue, Green Gables Estate, did not allow outside coordinators and that she may need to cancel. She was upset because she had a friend who got married at Green Gables and recommended to her that she hire an outside coordinator to help with planning. Green Gables approved Megan Joy Events to be...

Mother’s Day Styled Shoot

Wow oh wow oh wow! This was such a special shoot! This was the largest, most elaborate, and most detailed shoot that I have planned. I would say that this shoot was a true collaboration with the entire vendor team! Every vendor came, set up, and was able to enjoy through set up, design, networking, and team work! With Mother's Day coming up, we aimed to show Mothers how special it is to incorporate their littles into the wedding day! Jess, our bride, has a 5 month old little...

Lisa & Keith – April 13, 2019; Backyard Wedding in Ramona, CA

Lisa reached out to me through Wedding Wire 38 days before her wedding! Let’s just say we got to work right away! First thing we did was discuss what vendors still needed to be secured. This was pretty much everyone. Lisa was throwing a backyard wedding at her fiance’s parents house in Ramona, CA. This was my first backyard wedding but I was so excited! The first thing I did was head over to Green Wedding Shoes because they had just recently posted an article about backyard weddings....

Jordan & Ryan – March 14, 2019; Del Mar Beach

Jordan and I met 4 years ago at my sister in law’s wedding. We got down on the dance floor, surfed in the ocean, and the friendship blossomed from there! She got married in Northern California but wanted some photos of her and her hubby at one of their favorite places: THE BEACH! Being an adventurous couple, I knew this shoot would be fun to plan! We had fun incorporating small details of the color blue. We had a beautiful sun hat, light blue jean jacket, and a baby...

Roxanna & Carlos – February 23, 2019; Glamis Sand Dunes

I met the bride, Roxanna through her booking her wedding at Sacred Mountain. From there, she booked me as her Wedding Coordinator, and the planning began! She was interested in assisting me at a wedding and getting to see the backend of what goes into making a wedding magical, so I had her help me at one of my Sacred Mountain weddings! From there our friendship grew! The photographer for this shoot, Kari Martinez, actually reached out to me to plan a shoot together! She found me from the...

Bahia Resort Styled Shoot – 12/10/18

This was the first Styled Shoot that I planned so I went into it with no major expectations on myself. For me a styled shoot is a great opportunity to connect with vendors, experience a new venue, add my own personal design into the concept, and grow my portfolio! I had met for coffee with Chelsea from Chelsea Rose Beauty and we had just decided to go for it! For this first shoot, it was so nice to plan with someone and have someone to bounce ideas off...

Steph + Mike – August 29, 2018

Steph & Mike toured a year before they finally popped back up in my inbox ready to book Sacred Mountain. Right before their tour we began to get very popular and were booking many tours. We were attempting to see how tours would go if we schedule two couples at the same, or even three. Very quickly we found out that it’s best to have each couple tour by themselves to ensure they are getting the attention they deserve. It just so happens that Steph & Mike toured...
