California Wedding Day Best of 2017 Winners!

We are so excited to announce that we won BEST Event Design at the California Wedding Day Best of 2017 Awards

We were so honored to be nominated for this category, which was voted on first by the public, then by our vendor peers, and lastly by the magazine itself! Once we got to the final four, we were invited to attend the awards ceremony in downtown LA, at the beautiful Vibiana

This night was one for the books! A bunch of our vendor friends from SLO drove down the coast to attend this party, and it was so fun to celebrate with them all (see photo above!). There were four areas that rounded out this Best of Awards: San Luis Obispo County, Orange County, Los Angeles, and Ventura County/Santa Barabara. It was so fun to cheer on vendors who won from all these different areas. But it was especially fun to cheer on vendors from our little small town of SLO! And it was no mistake that we were THE loudest area by far. We love each other so much!

Above are some moments from when we won, it was such an honor to be up on that stage. All the late nights, long hours and FUN that comes with planning weddings. We absolutely love our jobs and love creating beauty for our couples. There is nothing better!

Thank you California Wedding Day!

From Orange County to San Luis Obispo

We wanted to explain things a little bit. {Why it says from Orange County to San Luis Obispo at the bottom of our website, how we can post Instagram photos being in two places at once.. } Well, the two of us live in separate cities in Southern California; San Luis Obispo and Newport Beach. About a three and a half hour car ride away from each other. 

On vacation in Kauai last year!

As sisters, we grew up together in Orange County, and Natalie made the permanent move up North once she was married. 

We are constantly driving back and forth, both for business and for fun! Having a tight knit family has made it easy for us to work alongside each other as business partners, and we spend a lot of time together despite the distance.

 Newport Beach & Avila Beach {in SLO}

We love having the ability to collaborate with vendors and clients both in our cities and all the lovely places in between. We don't think of that drive as a burden, it's a fun way to explore those places we otherwise probably wouldn't! And that's not to say we don't travel outside of that stretch of the 405 and 101 Freeways (sounds like that SNL skit), we love destination weddings! :) We're going back to Kauai this October and will be scouting locations over there!
