Hometown: Templeton, CA


I love spending time with my family. Bike riding, camping and hosting parties, playing with my kids, and having get togethers with family.

Fun Fact About Myself:

I did High School and College Rodeo.

What’s your favorite song to hear/play at a wedding?

Double Dutch Bus!!!

How long have you been in the event industry?

I grew up in Templeton on my family vineyard always eager to help my parents with their tasting room and events. I guess you could say I got my start as my dad’s helper at the BBQ. Growing up in this environment, I was exposed to how my parents engaged with customers and how the customers turned into friends.

After college I came back to Templeton in 2004 to help with my family’s Tasting Room, events and wine sales. I quickly found that events was what I was most passionate about so I started a side business that focused on wine events and weddings. The 46 West Wineries Group gave me a great start in running their non profit organization where we created a neighborhood map and hosted block parties! After 5 years of running my coordination business, I was lucky enough to become the Hospitality Manager at Robert Hall Winery- where I was able be apart of wine events and weddings from the facility side. After 4 wonderful years there, I decided to not return after having my second baby. But I could not stay away from events and joined the Kramer Team to be able to stay a part of incredible events and people!

What do you love most about being an Event Coordinator?

I love working in the wedding industry because I love the whole process of helping a couple create and execute their perfect day.

What’s your coordination style?

I hope people would say that I am calm and kind 🙂

What’s your favorite part about working for Kramer Events?

My favorite parts about working for Kramer Events is the family feel you get while working with the team, and the quality service you are surrounded with. I love working with the team because of the positive energy from all the team members. The wedding day does not feel like work when you have a good support system around you.

What’s your favorite part of a wedding?

The Grand Entrance, to see the Bride and Groom relaxed and ready to party. I have so many great memories of meeting different people and getting to know good families. 

What general advice would you give a couple preparing for their wedding?

I would tell a couple to listen to their heart while planning. To keep in mind the most important parts of the wedding- food, drink and music!
