EVENT MANAGER

Vintage or modern: A blend of both. Vintage decor accented with subtle hits of modern metallic is perfection.
Favorite destination: Barcelona has my heart.
Favorite cocktail: A margarita on the rocks, but mimosas are a very close second!
Favorite event decor: Hands down candles. A room filled with candle light and a soft dim glow is so warm and inviting.
