    Amazing! Simply the best in the biz!

    Chelsea did an amazing job this past Saturday as the day of planner. She was given a tall task and handle it effortlessly. You can really tell the competence of someone when they are thrown a bunch of curve balls and still manage to hit home runs! Great job, and keep up the great work!

    Black Tie Optional's reply:

    Thank you so much, Michael!! We really enjoyed working with you and appreciate your words of encouragement. Can't wait to collaborate on another wedding again soon!

Team

Chelsea Gaytan
Chelsea Gaytan
Founder, Lead Wedding Planner

I have been in corporate events since 2014 and my hyper-detail oriented brain was abolsutely made for event planning. I believe my strengths lie in focusing on the tiny pieces of an event based on the overall vision, and executing those to perfection. I'm extremely communicative and anticipate pain points before they arise, to ensure that every event goes off without a hitch!

After planning my own wedding in the Arizona desert, at a location that required me to outsource all my own vendors and staff, I fell head-over-heels for wedding planning. I learned that I love connecting with other local business owners that are just as passionate about LOVE as I am. When multiple vendors and guests said that they were blown away by the execution of our wedding and suggested that I do this professionally - I just HAD to take the leap and start Black Tie Optional!

I can't wait to speak with you and to hear all about your wedding dreams!
