My motto was and always will be quality over quantity

When I started La Cosa Bella Events five years ago, I put a great deal of forethought into the vision and the goals of the business. From the beginning, it was important that each client was to have the benefit of the La Cosa Bella experience, which would always include absolute attention to detail and the assurance that their event was going to be beautiful and custom tailored to the individual client's personality. My motto was and always will be quality over quantity, and although we're doing more business now we will not take on more than we can handle. As you enjoy looking at the Gallery images, consider that every client shown had a different budget. While they had different budgets, note the quality and overall beauty of each wedding. At La Cosa Bella, our winning formula for a magical day includes a beautiful setting, amazing food and a fun reception with the impeccable service and attention to detail that has earned La Cosa Bella multiple industry awards and recognition. A La Cosa Bella Bride is a happy bride, that's my personal promise.

We are a team who truly cares about the success of each special occasion or event we get to be a part of

I have had the privilege of being a part of La Cosa Bella Events for four years now. We are a team who truly cares about the success of each special occasion or event we get to be a part of. From weddings to charity polo events, planning a beautiful event is what we care about. Through the years my role with the company has been tailored to the food and beverage aspect of an event. My background in fine dining, bar-tending, and hospitality make me an integral part of every event. I understand the timing of service and how to relate and communicate with catering professionals. I enjoy the variety of ways food can enhance an event.

I take pride in setting up for events. I am extremely OCD about the placement of a fork, the fold of a napkin, or the spacing between water glass and champagne flute. I assure that all elements are set correctly and that everything just looks beautiful. For me, the best part of any event is in the small details.

I have a love of all things wedding related

It was while sitting at a local coffee shop one summer when I knew that event planning was my calling. Surrounded by several open planners, journals, and every highlighter I owned, I knew I had found my happy place. This still describes my day-to-day life. I am constantly making to-do lists, scribbling down thoughts in my notebook, or penciling everything into my calendar.

I have a love of all things wedding related, am extremely organized and a planner by nature, so I cherish the daily opportunity to practice my passions with La Cosa Bella Events. Each member of La Cosa Bella brings something different to the team, which makes us all work so well together. My expertise in social media, marketing, and blogging allows La Cosa Bella to reach and connect with more and more people everyday.
