Journey with me

Joy of Life Events was established in 2005 and I has since planned and designed hundreds of weddings and events in Northern California including Lake Tahoe, Truckee, Nevada City and Grass Valley.

I’m a Certified Professional Wedding Planner, with over 30 years of education and experience in the hospitality industry. I possess in-depth industry knowledge and experience that ensures seamlessly planned and executed events. 

I have produced the annual Grass Valley Wedding Fair, A Wedding Affair for all Seasons for the past 10 years which has given me the opportunity to work with over 500 local wedding professionals. These relationships along with valuable knowledge of their services helps me to connect the perfect vendor team with my clients.


The Art of the Event

I believe that weddings should reflect your personalities and passions along with your chosen season, colors, and wedding venue. I assist you in finding unique ways to express your individuality and personal style.

Whether you’re a bit sassy or all about the classics, there are ways to reflect on your love and passion that are uniquely you!

Because events (particularly weddings) are so immersive and time-consuming I only take on a limited number of events per year to ensure the integrity of my services.
