I LOVED this wedding and I LOVED this bride!  Aside from being absolutely GORGEOUS on the outside, Niza was one of the most LOVELY brides on the inside.  Although we had a short planning time frame…we were able to come up with the perfect FRESH, COLORFUL and CHIC wedding design for Niza and Jose.  Hot Pink, Lime Green, Marigold Yellow, Bright Orange and Mint Green popped against the STUNNING backdrop of  Wolf Lakes Park in the form of luscious flowers and whimsical lanterns.

Since it was a family affair, the KIDS AREA was a kaleidoscope of fun activities and sugary sweets.  There was also perfect touches of a Chocolate Fountain, Mariachi Band and sophisticated Lounge Area for all of the guests to enjoy.   It was all captured by the FAMOUS and ridiculously-talented photographer, Mariano Friginal.  Enjoy the photos!

They say ”Diamonds are a girl’s best friend”… but when combined with hot pink feathers, they are a 15 year old girl’s BFF!!!  And that’s just what we gave Vanessa for her Quinceanera at the Golden Palace Ballroom.

A room drenched in hot pink lighting was the perfect backdrop for Vanessa and her Court.  Tall centerpieces of crystal globes and multi-colored ostrich plumes were just the thing to take this event from ordinary to extraordinary.  Everyone cheered as Vanessa cut into her six tier, zebra inspired cake and danced the night away in celebration of Vanessa turning the BIG 1-5!

My darling Indira turned TWO years old this month and nestled in between our BUSY regularly scheduled events, I had the pleasure of planning her birthday party!

Some parents get stressed out with birthday party planning, but I think…If you enjoy doing it, than GO FOR IT!  And one might think an event planner would get out of control with parties, but surprisingly, I VOWED to make it a simple, casual, backyard barbecue and SUCCEEDED!

This year was quite different from the Cupcake Party last year.  The colors were red, white and a teal blue and the kids enjoyed WATER FUN in the backyard (even in 105 degree HEAT) , the adults chowed down on barbecue food including tri-tip, chicken and potato salad, Indira gave away cute BEACHCOMBER bags as goodie bags to her guests and we had yummy desserts such as Sheri’s famous ice cream sandwiches, Nadia’s own Red Velvet Cupcakes and a Birthday Cake by Miss Jackie (a family friend).

A special thanks to Ruben J. for the photos!

Marissa and Kyle are the BEST 6th graders you will ever want to meet…that’s why we wanted to make their Graduation Party one they would never forget.

You might be wondering what Hawaiian Hula and Highlighters have in common…but combining the FUN, VIBRANT colors of a luau with the GLOWING, NEON colors of a night club created the ultimate party atmosphere!

Guests entered a tropical oasis and were later ushered into a glow-in-the-dark dance club haven.  Black lights, glow sticks, white T-shirts and hi-lighters…along with the perfect club DJ made this night an EPIC kick-off to Marissa and Kyle’s Jr. High life!

David is a DOLL and we had a great time planning his first birthday party!  We spent lots of time with his mother, Maureen,  getting each detail just right for this big boy’s first birthday celebration.

The theme was JUNGLE ANIMALS and there was no shortage of fun activities for all of the guests to enjoy.  The fete was held at Grand Occasions and he was lucky enough to have a face painter, bounce house, DJ, craft station, coloring station, candy table, cookie decorating, floor play, cupcakes by Frosted Cakery, animal masks and pin-the-tail-on-the-monkey.  Everyone had a blast!!!

…unfortunately this is not the best photo and it does not reflect the SUCCESS of last nights’ Children with Cancer Holiday party.  It was an amazing annual event held at the Savemart Center filled with tons of food, toys, crafts, entertainment, sports, and love.  Words cannot express how lovely and courageous these children and their parents are…all of us were honored to be a part of this event!

Although as an event planner, you feel the pressure to have THE most fabulous events, I really wanted to have a simple party for my daughter, Indira’s, 1st birthday.  We were headed to Las Vegas for a week of business & pleasure and we had planned on celebrating her birthday there.

Somehow along the way, I agreed to put together a small fete in town to celebrate with family and friends and overall, I was please with how it turned out. Enjoy!
