Natalie's degree in hospitality is really just the foundation of what makes her so effective. She pours her heart into every event and listens to what is important to every couple. That combination allows her to find solutions where others see obstacles. In addition to being comfortable working with a wide range of vendors, she has a friendly personality to make you and your guests comfortable while taking care of important or time sensitive details.
I’ve been an event planner my entire life and never actually realized it. I grew up in an event planning family here in Santa Barbara, so it has always been a natural part of my life; birthdays, holiday, and graduation parties. You name it!
When I went to college it was no surprise that I directed myself toward events. At the University of San Francisco I got a business degree with a focus in Hospitality Management. During my time their I planned multiple events, including dinners, receptions, and reunions. But I was forever changed, when I did my first 'Day Of" coordinating for a wedding. There is nothing like the fun and excitement of being involved in something so incredibly important as someone’s wedding.
Over the last couple of years I have been working in an upscale hotel really learning to understand all the aspects of what goes into creating those special experiences. Additionally, working with AMS Entertainment has developed my skills and experiences further by taking part in some wonderful and unique events.
My skill starts with listening, really listening to each couple's ideas and preferences. I then work to focus on making their dream become a reality, balancing the organization with my experience to guide each couple through the many choices to be made. I look forward to every new couple and bringing their ideas to life while add some inspiration and guidance.
I have lived in Santa Barbara my entire life and love everything that our town has to offer. I am truly blessed, because I am able to do what I love and get to experience the wonderful thrill that comes from watching an event come together.
We had AMS provide for our wedding a guitarist, DJ, Day of Coordinator, photo booth and some lighting. We would definitely recommend AMS to any prospective brides/grooms! They exceeded all expectations and helped make our wedding day one of the most memorable days of our lives - and they did it for a very reasonable price!Roy & Ashley
