Couldn鈥檛 do it with out her!

Chardonnay was absolutely amazing!! I already had 98% of my wedding planned when we hired her for day of coordination. She helped get us a structured timeline and contacted all vendors. There is so much behind the scenes stuff that happens on the day of your wedding and Chardonnay handled all of that!! We would not have been able to enjoy our day as much as we did without her. We are forever thankful

Amazing, the Best!

Chardonnay was recommended by our venue and we are so happy we decided to go with her. Her communication is top notch. She even sent thoughtful cards to show her dedication to making our day special. We were a bit overwhelmed with all of the little details of the wedding and Chardonnay made it so easy for us to decide everything on step at a time. She set up a wedding day timeline and venue map for us with ease and made sure the day went smoothly. She set up the welcome table, gift table, chairs, rugs, dessert gazebo, and so so so much more before the wedding. She also ran the wedding rehearsal so that we were prepared on the big day. She managed everything so perfectly, we can not recommend her enough! If you鈥檙e looking for an amazing wedding planner, Chardonnay is the best.

Owner & Founder

Hi, my name is Chardonnay, and I am the owner of Chardonnay Events. I created my company in 2018 after noticing that there was a need for this type of service in the Sacramento region (and after dreaming about doing it for several years!).

During and after earning my Bachelor of Arts in Public Relations from Sacramento State, I worked in the marketing and PR industry for a number of years. I worked in-house for a public agency as well as for a private PR firm, and my favorite part of the job was always coordinating and staffing special events! I鈥檝e organized and executed a wide variety of occasions, including weddings, fundraisers, bridal and baby showers, birthday parties, community festivals, customer and employee appreciation events, and more!

I took several years off from the workforce to be a stay-at-home mother to my two daughters. I always knew that when I returned to working, I wanted to find a career that I was passionate about and that would also allow me to help others. It was in this search that I developed the concept for Chardonnay Events.

鈥nd that鈥檚 how this little company was born! I truly love what I do, and would be delighted to support you in hosting a fabulous event.

Aside from my love of special events, I enjoy cooking, planning and organization of all types, yoga, hiking (especially at the American River) and going on adventures with my husband and children.
