Grateful to have worked with Megan Rose Events
During the planning process, she was a huge help and always had a thoughtful answer or offered to find out more on whatever I was looking for and report back. Her response time was always quick, which is essential in the planning process.
As we got closer to our wedding date, there was still so much uncertainty due to the global pandemic. We had to quickly decide if we would postpone our wedding or move forward and scale down. We could not have made this difficult decision without Megan. She was up to date on regulations, walked us through our options, and offered creative ways to make it similar to our original vision. In the end, we decided to scale down and have an intimate ceremony and dinner with 20 of our closest family and friends. It was a perfect weekend!
I completely trusted Megan to take care of the smaller details on the day of our wedding. I was relaxed and able to enjoy our special day!
After the wedding weekend, all our guests mentioned how spectacular all the little things were and how smoothly everything went. There were no issues, and that is all thanks to Megan.
All in all, there is nothing I would have changed throughout this planning process. Megan is the perfect addition to any wedding, and we are profoundly grateful to have had the pleasure of working with her!
I highly recommend her for your next event, and know it will be absolutely perfect as ours was!
Love working with Megan

Meet Megan - never met a process she couldn’t optimize or a space she couldn’t transform.
You’ll never guess what I did before I became a luxury wedding planner. (No literally—you’ll never guess.) With a background in engineering, I spent 11 years in the Operations and Supply Chain field with my most recent role as the Director of Global Supply Chain for a water-filter manufacturer. (Told you.) I had reached the pinnacle of my career—but was nowhere near fulfilled. So I pulled the plug and followed my passion—which led me to a career as an event planner at a high-end catering company, where I spent time learning from the best of the best before launching Megan Rose Events.
My background in the corporate world saw me immersed in operations, logistics, process efficiency, and budgeting for over a decade—while my time working under some of the most respected wedding planners in the industry gave me incredible insight into what it takes to produce multifaceted wedding weekends. Combine all of that with my type-A knack for organization and my creative spirit—and I am officially the wedding planner who protects your budget as fiercely as I do the integrity of a place setting.
Today, few things bring me joy like creating an experience that allows you and your guests to immerse yourselves in this spectacular location and simply enjoy each other. I know I’ve done my job when we’re deep into your reception, and I look at you and know: you have no idea what time it is or where your phone is—and you couldn’t care less, because you’re having the time of your life.
Meet Nelson - a big-picture, big-solutions kind-of guy
In my past life, I was both a Hotshot firefighter and a project manager for a high-end Santa Barbara home builder—so I’m right at home amongst intense pressure, complicated challenges, and multiple moving parts (so many moving parts).
As I watched my wife follow her passion into the world of destination wedding planning, it didn’t take long to realize: being a wedding planner is the ultimate nexus between creativity and project-management (two skills I happen to have in spades). So I threw caution to the wind and joined her—and here’s where I say: I am so glad I did.
I love getting into the flow on your wedding day—and using my calm-under-pressure demeanor and knack for creative problem solving to keep things running smoothly on the surface (no matter how hard we may be pedaling below). Whether I’m negotiating with a vendor, reading a contract with a sharp eye, or executing complicated production logistics on a tight timeframe—getting to act as your advocate, while working alongside my wife, is as rewarding as it gets.
