My favorite memory from each event ...

One of my favorite places to be is in the kitchen!  This was the morning of my wedding elopement in Big Sur and it was the perfect way to start off the day! 

My partner in crime Julie Smith - She is every bit as lovely as she is talented! She is always serving up the most scrumptious treats. You name it, she can do it - appetizers, perfectly curated grazing stations, cheese displays, and more. It's always a good day with her by my side. <3

Did someone say BINGO?! I used to work for a private school and we did a super awesome family bingo fundraiser every year. Good ole' fashioned fun on a budget! This event was a rewarding one to plan and all for a good cause.

This was a simple outdoor gathering to thank the Foundation Circle Members of San Luis Obispo Classical Academy. The lovely Shannon Dalporto was my assistant for this event and it was held at SLOCA High School Campus.

Holiday Parties are probably one of the most fun to plan! A night at Woodstock's Backyard venue in San Luis Obispo. The pizza was endless and the beer and wine were flowing. We finished off the night playing an awesome game of White Elephant exchange!

My favorite little autumn pumpkin DIY centerpieces and Brenda Tebbets make for a joyous photo! This was a speaker series event with the President of Cal Poly, Jeff Armstrong at Clark Center in Arroyo Grande.

fiesta birthday party

Birthday Celebrations for loved ones are a true joy to plan. This was a Fiesta themed dinner party at La Esquina Taqueria in downtown SLO. They have the PERFECT back patio outside. They even provide you with blankets and heaters. It decided to sprinkle on this particular evening and the guests didn't even mind it! The birthday girl absolutely loves rain so everyone laughed and played in the rain <3

Sidecar Cocktail Co.

Josh Christensen is a cocktail making bandit! I mean, seriously. . his drinks should be outlawed! They are that good. This was a SLO Chamber Mixer, backyard style for SLOCA. We had OLD SLO BBQ passing around delicious appetizers and Sidecar Cocktail Co. creating masterful drinks! We were also pouring " shots" of Whalebird Kombucha in mini red solo cups. Oh, and can't forget the campfire Smore's station for dessert!

father and daughter

Every time I see this photo my heart does cartwheels. This Father and Daughter Dance really touched all the feelers with these sweet little girls. Each guest was welcomed with a homemade corsage in vibrant shades of pink and their dads picked it out to give to them. The night was equipped with a DJ, donut bar, flower crown activities and dance offs! Let's not forget the cotton candy prizes from Haute Sugar Co. @HauteSugarCo
