Best day of my life!
We actually got married in 2020! Something we’ll never forget for many obvious reasons. But my gorgeous wedding never could have happened if it wasn’t for all my amazing vendors and wedding planners who made it all happen despite all the challenges. Sanya was pivotal in reassuring my family who was very concerned about our guests safety and she was able to accommodate all our crazy requests without skipping a beat. In the end, it was THE best day of my life and I wouldn’t have changed a thing! I highly, highly recommend this beautiful vineyard estate and Sanya and her vendors!Sent on 12/31/2020

Life savers in 2020!
Literally life-savers! After we lost our original hotel venue due to COVID, we had only 2 weeks to find a replacement venue and all the major vendors (catering, florist, rentals etc.). After a few days of stress and lots of tears, we got lucky and stumbled upon Sanya and her team. As if waving a magic wand, she took all my worries away and arranged all the vendor meetings and just made it all happen in record time! All the vendors came through and blew us away on the day of our wedding! Everything was perfect and beautiful and made me forget about this crazy year and the pandemic going on. Sanya and her team literally SAVED my wedding day and they were so attentive and incredible on the day of, that my family is still talking about it! Thank you so much!Sent on 12/31/2020
Team of Orange County's Hamilton Oaks Vineyard Events
Lead Planner / Dream Maker
"Calm under (extreme) pressure. Spreadsheet Queen who has a spreadsheet for everything. Keeps her cool - with her sense of humor intact. Wedding whisperer. Soothing confidence with rock-solid competence."
This is how clients and colleagues describe me and I can honestly say that I am the luckiest person to be able to put all my talents to good use AND witness LOVE... for a living! I left my Bio-Chem degree and corporate medical world behind, pursued curiosity and built the career of my dreams. I'm a hopeless romantic and still cry at weddings. My slight OCD for all details and perfection (of course all linen seams have to face the same way, don't they?) is finally valued. I am obsessed with Milk Tea Boba and will drive far for a good one. I swear I have a separate stomach for desserts and would rather spend extra time on my spin bike if it enables me to enjoy my gastronomy adventures. I still think that I married THE most amazing man in the world and we are proud parents to 3 little stinkers (and 14 chickens).
When hiring me to be your wedding designer & planner (a therapist sometimes), be prepared to become friends, too! And be warned: you just might become addicted to all things weddings, like I did! :)
Lead Planner aka Dream Maker
When I started planning my own wedding at 5... ok maybe 6, of course it only made sense that my career path would lead to becoming a wedding and event planner! Plus I’m Italian... so don’t all Italians love and know how to throw a good party?!
I can honestly say I genuinely love what I do and you’ll probably feel that the moment we meet. From designing, to planning, to meeting your families, I love every minute of it... throw your dog in the mix and I’m even more excited!
There really is nothing more rewarding then seeing the smiles on my clients’ faces when they see their dream day come to life!
If I’m not at a wedding you can find me at the beach, trying a new brewery, or tailgating with my family at a Charger game!
