• Welcome to the Amber Events blog! We invite you to get a glass of wine and settle in for a while as we take you behind the scenes for a highly informative, always honest, and somewhat irreverent look into the world of wedding planning.

Happy Monday!

This past weekend, Nira, Michelle, Jackie, Karly, and I got together in downtown L. A. to film a new promotion video for Amber Events. We were so happy to have our talented friend and videographer, Judson Morgan, capture the essence of us as individuals and as a team. It was an afternoon of sharing ideas, laughs, cupcakes, and selfies with our favorite mascot, Stitch!

Will keep ya posted on when the video gets debuted. Thanks for reading!


Hi there, it’s Vanessa!

VanessaAllow me to re-introduce myself. My name is Vanessa, and I began interning for Amber Events in the summer of 2013. After a five-month hiatus, during which I lived in Lithuania, I was warmly welcomed back into the company and got to partake in some incredible weddings. 2014 was a great year for us, and I’m excited to continue growing within Amber Events in 2015.

That one time Jackie and I took at an HTML/CSS Workshop at General Assembly in Santa Monica!

It is my honor to become a regular blogger on the Amber Events website. On behalf of my beautiful and hard-working associates—boy, do we have some exciting changes for you! You may have started to notice them already, but over the next couple of months, our website alone will be completely transformed. Of course, we’re also planning for some fabulous weddings and events this year. I, for one, am really looking forward to warmer weather!

Follow us on Instagram to see new places, meet new faces, and go behind the scenes at Amber Events. Thanks for reading, and see you again soon!


The End of an Era

Hi All! Amber here! After a ton of thought and consideration, my husband Eric and I have decided to leave Los Angeles and move back to Arkansas. It wasn’t an easy decision to make but we feel that it’s the right thing to do for our family and our future. The draw of clean air, clean water, clean food, low cost of living, good schools, new business opportunities, and our daughter Lulu growing up around Cousins, Aunts & Uncles, and Grandparents was just too strong of a pull to resist.

The past 8 years have been incredible. I still remember the day that I came home from a job I hated and told my husband that I had finally found my passion: I was going to be a wedding planner. And I did it. And it was (mostly) wonderful. I’m still friends with many of the couples with whom I’ve had the honor to work with. And the vendors that I have worked with over the years have become some of my closest and dearest friends and have supported me and cheered me on throughout this journey.

But now it’s time for a new chapter for my family. I am SO excited and thrilled that Amber Events will still live on under the direction of the brilliant and dazzling Nira DeLuna and our associates. Nira has grown with me for the past 5 years and she is going to do big things!


Whoa, 2014!!!!!

2014! What a year!

To our clients for allowing us to be a part of your special day,

To our vendors for working so hard,

To our family and friends for your love and support:

THANK YOU from Amber Events! May your new year be blessed with love, laughter, joy, & sparkles!Photography Credits (in alpha order)
