About Jennifer

Hello, my name is Jennifer and I am here to share my passion with you! As the owner of An Occasion Events, it is my pleasure to combine my enthusiasm and your dreams to create something special! Here is a little about me before we begin this journey together.​

My passion for the wedding industry has been growing for decades. My first introduction was in high school where my agriculture teacher taught me floral design. At only 16, I was lucky enough to find my first job in a cozy flower shop in Santa Maria, California. Here I was able to truly fall in love with flowers while learning skills in customer service and event services. I was able to flourish as I pursued floral design workshops and countless industry conferences to better perfect my skills and pursue my dreams. 

 

In 2003, my passion came to fruition as I opened my first full service flower shop. With time, I was sought out by the local steakhouse to manage and service the private events hosted there. This eventually progressed to me overseeing the restaurant and bar full time, which allowed me to build my knowledge and experience in the food and beverage industry. Being an event coordinator, this experience has helped me offer a complete service to my clients and furthered my career. 

 

With these tools under my belt, my love for event planning has shaped an amazing career of making dreams come true! There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the love of a couple come to life on their special day.  

 

While floral design and event planning is my passion, my family has my heart. Being a proud wife to my loving husband and a dedicated mother to my three sons has been my greatest joy. 

 

My family has continued to grow with my two lovely daughter-in-laws and my 5 sweet grandbabies. The entirety of my family keeps me inspired with their love.

 

Located in the heart of California’s gold country, I have the honor of aspiring to help couples experience the wedding of their dreams. Now enough about me, let's plan your wedding! 

XO,  Jennifer
