Luxe II Launch

Happy Easter, everyone!

This week, the girls and I got together to attend the Luxe II Launch at Bel Air Bay Club. It was an evening for Luxe Linen to showcase their new collection, and host somewhat of a tablescape contest. For weeks leading up to the event, the Amber Events team had designed and collaborated with different vendors to make our theme of “Rooftop Sunset in Zanzibar” come to life!

Think natural, earthy, lush, with pops of color from fuchsia napkins and authentic Moroccan pillows. No, things didn’t go as planned on the day of, but we’re happy to say that the final design showed to be effortlessly chic–not to mention the beach was the perfect backdrop! We couldn’t have done it without our generous sponsors, especially the lovely ladies at Fiore. It was a relief to then be able to check out the other teams’ designs, as well as enjoy the delicious hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, and sweets.

Meet Paulina Johnson!

We, at Amber Events, love collaborating with different vendors. We’re always open to exchanging our talents for the benefit of both parties; a win-win, if you know what I mean! So when Paulina approached us to be featured on her blog, we agreed to a photo shoot involving headshots for an interview on her blog, as well as a DIY shoot for a feature on our blog. Cool, right?

Paulina, Jackie, Karly, and I met at Daily Dose Cafe earlier this week for an afternoon of good conversation and watercolor fun. We also got to meet a current client, Sara, whose wedding is coming up in May! Check out our vlog footage on our *new* YouTube channel:

Come back soon to see how the photos turned out! You can also visit Paulina’s website to see some of her work here.

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!

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!
