Emily K. Bennett is a professionally-trained Artist turned Event Designer, Planner and Coordinator. Originally from the Midwest, Emily moved to California to pursue her career as a Scenic Artist—painting theatrical scenery, theme parks, and interior murals.  Coordinating friend's and family's Weddings sparked her interest in Events.  She then started working for one of the top independent Wedding Planners in Orange County and at a Wedding Venue.  After enjoying her time with those professionals, she broke off and started her own company. Her artistic background gives her the creative edge to help you design, plan, and coordinate the Wedding of your dreams!

Her personal hobbies include running, writing, painting, hiking, spending time in the great outdoors, and being a Bridesmaid or Maid of Honor in several friends and family Weddings. There is a running joke within her circle of friends that the movie, "27 Dresses" was written about Emily.  She also loves going to the beach, eating good food, and visiting family and friends often.
