Photo: I Heart My Groom

I love weddings! No, that's an understatement. I live and breathe weddings. In reality, I love celebrations of all kinds. I truly believe that the purpose of life is to celebrate it. And I love being a part of every celebration that I can. I volunteer to play hostess as much as possible. If I'm not working on a client's event, there is a good chance there is a party at my house.

I have been planning weddings and events for over 25 years. I am a supporter of the NOH8 Campaign, Human Rights Campaign and the Pacific Pride Foundation.

There are no limits to where we can plan your event. From Santa Barbara to Australia! We can do it!

I live in Southern California with my husband, two daughters and twin rescue kitties.

In addition to RSVP Weddings & Events, I also own SantaBarbaraGayWeddings.com and SantaBarbaraQuinceanera.com

RSVP Weddings & Events is an LGBTQ+ friendly company! ¡Se Habla Español!
