Nature is one of my biggest inspirations.

I grew up near Chicago (Go Bears!).

Peonies and Ranunculus make me really happy -- they're the epitome of texture, color and fragrance.

 

Meditation is my lifeline.

 

Cats, cats, cats.

 

On days off, you can find me at the beach!

I would describe my design style as very minimal & simple with some bold

Nothing beats a good hike.

"Stephanie was awesome to work with! She made the whole day go by flawlessly. She was very thorough with the details and very prepared for any unexpected surprises. She had a very calming manner that made me feel very at ease. I would hire her again in a heart beat!"

"Book this vendor! Julia was incredibly responsive, ALWAYS replying to our emails in a very timely fashion! She did an absolutely fabulous job which totally allowed me to enjoy my daughter's wedding knowing Julia was taking care of absolutely everything. You won't go wrong working with Julia at Events Inspired. I am so very glad we found her."

As native San Diegan, I believe in the healing power of sunshine and saltwater. 

Mama to 3 little girls - appropriately dubbed 'The Spice Girls'.

Is there really such a thing as owning too many blankets and pillows?

I could cross-country road trip listening to nothing but 90s Jamz the entire way.

Still looking for a more perfect pair than decadent chocolate and a bold red wine.

Camping and enjoying nature is foundational to my family's connectedness.

I love helping and seeing people enjoy life together!
