That love of “wow-ing“ people is the same feeling I get today when I help my clients to achieve their dreams. “ Dana has over 25 years of financial and management experience. Her event planning career started in Corporate Events, but she soon found her true passion in social events and weddings. “I get to know people on a more personal level and provide them with exceptional customer service, something that I take great pride in. I enjoy working on the intricate details and making people happy. I love being able to express my creative side.`

I like to have them visualize their event to start the client thinking about their true desires and then we work on putting those ideas on paper and into motion. I like to stretch their minds and ideas outside the box to make their event truly unique and memorable, but ultimately theirs.“

Kevin Nottage- Business/Partner

Kevin has a degree in International Business and Marketing from California Polytechnic University of Pomona. Kevin has seven years of professional event experience. Although Kevin is creative in his own right, it is the number crunching that he really likes. “I come up with creative ideas of my own but my job is to make sure that we can make the dream happen.“ Every event is different and unique and carries with its own set of business decisions; Kevin helps to guide his clients through that decision process with ease and care. “It is my job to work the numbers, and make the dream happen within the budget. My creative side helps me to see options for my clients in the design budget and keep them from falling into a tunnel vision trap that may keep them from realizing their dream.“
