At one time “Pure Lavish Events” was just a thought. An aspiration that maybe one day down the road I could do as a hobby. Yet, upon graduating college I realized that I loved nothing more than to meet a couple, hear their story and be right by their side on one of the biggest days of their life. I started working to make a dream a reality.

During my last year at Cal State Fullerton I began my journey and passion for weddings and events. I worked and interned for many companies, but It wasn't until I joined the Pure Lavish team when my passion truly became a career. The love, excitement and bond between couples are what make being a coordinator so incredibly fun and rewarding.

I like to believe I live by three statements; “Dream it, Live it, Love it!” With that being said, I love listening to clients visions and using my creativity to help them bring their dream event to life. I have been given the chance to live my passion and assist with designing.

Designer + Principal Planner

During and upon graduating from Cal State Fullerton, my years of planning and designing events transpired to becoming a part of the Pure Lavish Events family. I decided that combining my creativity, organizational skills and love for LOVE were strengths that happened to be the perfect fit for my career in events. I have an eye for details and am always striving to find new ways to make every event unique. I adore getting to know all of our couples and ensuring that their special day is seamless and reflective of their style and personality. I have found my home here at Pure Lavish and am looking forward to building many more relationships with amazing couples and growing as a professional doing what I love!
