Hey y'all

My love for weddings all started when I was six-years-old. I remember sitting in my living room, and watching my parent's grainy VHS wedding video—from my mom's beautiful, white dress to the flowers, and the embarrassingly funny wedding speeches. But the best part was watching two families become one (while throwing an awesome party of course)! Since those humble and nostalgic beginnings, I have been working in the Orange County wedding industry for over 7 years. In 2019, I made the decision to put my wedding planning dreams into action, and with that Golden Hour Events was born.

As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace.

At every wedding you'll always find my trusty sidekick, Andrew. We've been happily married for 5 years and counting, and together we've been kicking butt at each wedding we coordinate. No matter what event we work Andrew always has a way of befriending a wedding guest. He loves getting to know people and learning more about their story; he's just that good of a people person...probably why I married him. 

When not working a wedding you can find us chillin' with our doggo, going for a stroll at the beach, or hunting for the best falafel wrap in OC (we've found our new fav place, we
'd love to tell you about it!).
