I'm Courtney. I was born and raised in Southern California and married my best friend in 1995. Time has flown by but the memories (and the lines) remind us that it's been a while. My husband Spencer and I lived in New York for 15 years. It truly became my second home and I really am who I am today because of our experience there. We also had the amazing opportunity to live in Bolivia, South America for one year as volunteer construction workers. What a game changer.
My love for parties developed at a very young age. I'm pretty sure it stems from my mom who was always in the middle of planning something. I've been reminded that Event Planning was my passion before it became a career, when Spencer would say "if I had a nickel for every time you said 'this spot would be a great place for a party!'".
Let’s talk about that! There’s a lot of branding going on out there. I get it. It works. But honestly, it’s a real struggle for me to define my creative style. Do I have to pick? Do I really have to limit myself?
Put your hands up if you feel that variety is the spice of life!! I honestly believe that ANY style can be tasteful and classy if done right. I appreciate the modern bride who wants clean lines and splashes of art, the romantic bride who envisions soft, feminine textiles & whispy florals, the cowgirl (love me some country music btw) who wants to just keep it real and bring the family together for some good food and line dancing, to the bride who wants to pull in her cultural background with the food, decor and feel of her native land. (Better yet, let’s travel to your country for your special day!- I just renewed my passport) My point is this > every. single. style brings me joy. And to help you develop your vision is so exciting for me!!
That’s why I’ve done my best to provide you with a gallery where you can see work that I’ve done with very different styles. Take a minute to browse and then let’s create your perfect day!!
