While other companies only offer event design or planning, we specialize in both! Past clients consistently highlight our ability to envision the entire event along with our attention to detail. This means that we’re just as comfortable designing a reception layout as we are drawing up event timelines.

Design + Planning 

Over the years we’ve developed an extensive network of trusted vendors. We’ll match you with the perfect vendors for your needs and handle any behind-the-scenes logistics so you don’t have to worry about the details.

Vendor Relationships

We are dedicated to our couples and only plan a limited number of weddings per year to ensure the highest level of service. You can count on us for consistent communication and a collaborative, patient, and professional approach throughout the planning process.

Exceptional Service

We have planned countless weddings, all diverse in complexity, scale, budget, and style. As seasoned wedding planning experts, we’ve seen it all and can handle anything from unanticipated logistical issues to difficult relatives.


Destination Wedding Experts

We frequently work with couples from out of town or out of the country to plan their destination wedding. We understand the unique concerns and requirements of planning from afar and will go above and beyond to make the process easy and efficient.

Owner | Wedding & Event Planner

Echo is an experienced wedding planner with over 15 years of event management experience, and a background in hospitality, interior design, and banquet management. 

After earning her degree in Hospitality and Tourism in the Wine Industry, she launched her career planning events for nationwide organizations in the non-profit, information technology, healthcare, and higher education sectors. Echo has a breadth of experience planning everything from galas and fashion shows, to golf tournaments and seminars. As a hopeless romantic herself, weddings have always been Echo’s passion, and she’s thrilled to be “marrying” her skillset with a couple’s unique vision to create memorable events.

When she's not planning weddings, Echo enjoys spending time with her husband on the water, either paddleboarding or watching him kiteboard. They split their time between Wine Country, California and Nevada, and feel lucky to enjoy the outdoor benefits of both locations! Echo's children are grown and gone; the youngest at Pepperdine University and the oldest a father of two working in Texas law enforcement. Life is truly a blessing!
