new office/re-launch party!

We entered 2015 with a new studio, a new business name, & a new associate coordinator….all great reasons to celebrate! We got together with Lily Stein, our suite-mate, and planned a little office party in March. We were so excited to invite some of our closest vendor friends down for some champagne and for a toast…

real wedding: kristen & ethan 10/5/2013

Some couples are more than just clients, they are friends. Kristen is one of those clients. I’ve known Kristen for years, and I was so honored to be asked to help with her big day! Kristen worked with me at the Newport Beach Marriott for years, and her sister Summer (who I also worked with…

real wedding: sandra & wayne 10/13/2013

It’s no secret that The Ritz-Carlton is one of my favorite places… and weddings like this remind me of just how lucky we are to live here in CA, just a short drive from such amazing places! The view, the ocean breeze, the blue water, it is just the perfect backdrop to say “I Do”….

“change forces growth”

After SO MUCH hard work, the day has finally arrived! Events By Candice is now Engaged Events. It feels really, really good to say that! I decided to change the business name and venture into this expansion over 8 months ago, so it seems so surreal that it is actually launch day- Nov 14, 2014!…

real wedding: sanam & abel 9/1/2013

Sometimes things just all come together perfectly. I meet a bride and right then I know we are going to make magic together. From my first meeting with Sanam I knew her and I were not only meant to work together, but meant to be friends long after her wedding as well! Working with the…

real wedding: jamie & dj 7/12/2013

I am very lucky that over the years I have spent nearly nothing on advertising. All of my business comes from referrals, which is so personal to me. When a past couple refers me to another couple, it is a huge compliment! Jamie and DJ were given my name by Branden (a past groom from 2011)…

real wedding: marissa & chris 10/27/12

Another amazing October wedding coming your way! I met Marissa and Chris in a very interesting way….. but I believe that it was fate that brought us together! It was a random weeknight, and after a gym workout, I met my husband at Corner Bakery for a quick bite to eat. We ordered and I took a…

The perfect New York couple, an A-Team of vendors, a beautiful location, perfect weather, and fun wedding guests….. Diane and Chris’s wedding was sheer perfection on every level.
