I was born and raised in Templeton, Ca and moved to San Luis Obispo for college, where I met my husband, Jake. It was always Jake's dream to open a restaurant, and in 2013 we turned that dream into our reality. We moved to Mariposa, Jake's hometown, and opened 1850 Restaurant. How lucky I am to have not one, but two incredible places to call home.


In 2014 Jake and I started planning our winter wedding. During the planning process I quickly realized how difficult it was to plan a wedding in such a remote area like Mariposa, and how tough it must be for destination brides to plan their weddings in Yosemite. It was then that I decided to launch 1850 Weddings & Events.


I have helped many local and destination brides plan their weddings, and with the help of some amazing vendors, we have made the impossible possible. From rustic ranch weddings, to traditional weddings in the Yosemite Chapel or at the historic Ahwahnee Hotel, I know together we can create whatever your heart desires!


I am looking forward to meeting you, and helping you along your wedding planning journey!
