Karen Nguyen

Born and raised in Orange County, Karen grew up as the youngest and the only girl to two amazingly supportive parents and two older brothers who devoted their time to music and tech. She graduated undergrad at UC Santa Barbara and earned her MBA from UC Irvine. During her college life, Karen worked full-time for an events company where her love for events and weddings flourished. With each successful event came validation that her passion is in planning and that’s what she is meant to do.

She is a firm believer in building relationships that last, so what better industry to be in than wedding planning? Karen sets out to build a strong foundation with everyone she has the privilege of working with to assure them that, so long as she is on this journey with them, their dreams are her dreams — and that those dreams will come true for their big day.


When she isn’t wedding planning, Karen spends her time pampering her Pomeranian or seeking out new restaurants and food to try! She will try everything twice — once to see whether or not she likes it, twice to make sure.

Ashley Cone

Ashley was born and raised in Los Angeles County. Being the oldest of two siblings, and having very busy parents, Ashley was used to making most of the decisions in her household. She was usually the one who organized all of the family birthdays, and get-togethers, and holidays. It didn't take long for her to come to the realization that she was naturally, a good planner. Ashley has been involved in the wedding and event industry since 2014. She is currently working towards finishing up her Bachelor’s degree in Hospitality and Communication in order to further her knowledge and perfect her craft.

If it were up to her, Ashley would prefer to be busy rather than not, but on the rare occasion that she has some free time, she enjoys going to Disneyland, cooking, eating, and travelling.

Ivahna Munandar

Ivy is a California transplant who was born and raised in Jakarta, Indonesia. She moved here to pursue her bachelor's degree in Marketing from Azusa Pacific University when she was 17 -- and loved it so much, she came back to stay! Being an international student and living on her own away from her family meant she had no other choice than to put everything she has into her work. Her drive and passion is what got her to where she is now.

Her passion for event styling and design has helped her in styling family and friends' birthdays, baby showers, decorating every corner of her house, as well as planning for her own wedding. It definitely helps that she's extraordinarily Pinterest-savvy! She has a board for pretty much everything! Since then, friends, family, and followers have started coming and asking for her help in planning, designing, styling their events.
