About Anything But Gray Events
I am the CEO and technicolor boss lady behind Anything But Gray Events. I specialize in bold, colorful, and imaginative celebrations for amazingly creative people. I believe that more is more and less is just … BORING. I’m an L.A native. Yes, we do exist! I am honest, passionate, straightforward, hardworking, and yes, a jazzy weirdo. Sequins and sunshine are in my DNA. My recipe for event awesomeness has been developed over 3 decades: my mother, Trilby, was a successful wedding and event planner so I grew up in the biz. On top of that, I have 18 years of stage management and improv comedy training, a tour of duty in culinary school and time in the trenches of the hospitality field. With a dash of sass, a hearty laugh and a splash of bright pink lipstick there you have it! ANYTHING but Gray.
I am NOT your average wedding planner. I don't wear all black or carry a clipboard. I think walkie talkies are for Boy Scouts in a makeshift fort and everything is better with a smile. I’m a snazzy extrovert with a get-it-done-and-make-it-look-easy strategy and a you-do-you-boo attitude. I am NOT trying to be the wedding planner for everyone. I want couples to look at my work and either say, "She is the ONE" or "WTF! No way, Jose!" Either option is perfectly acceptable. I have three Boston terriers, a very tall German boyfriend named Sebastian and for the life of me, cannot keep a houseplant alive. I love La Croix, selfies and Hanson. Judge me not. I told you: goofball and honest to a fault. That’s me, baby!
Our Philosophy is simple. We believe all relationships, personal or professional, are based on mutual respect, positive energy and a healthy sense of humor. The world works best when we strive for Community over Competition and Kindness for All. We live and breathe by the team work motto, “Make Each Other Look Good”.

There are no cookie-cutter weddings here. No way! Although, we do really love cookies.
Not only are we planners and idea organizers, but we are comrades and partners in this crazy journey. We take on only a select number of clients per year to ensure we give them the time, personal attention, and focus they deserve. We want to get to know you as individuals, as a couple and as friends. Cheesy but true! Anything But Gray Events IS creative design, planning logistics and event execution all wrapped up in a shiny, technicolor package!
