and management at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC, I began to work in the event planning and design field and have never looked back since. The very first wedding that I planned and produced was hosted at the New York Public Library, and when the day came to life, my heart felt fuller than it ever had before. This incredible experience led me to move to the Bay Area in 2015, where my world unfolded into cliffside elopements, garden parties, vineyard nuptials, modern warehouse “I do’s” and private estate celebrations.

Hi! I’m Bari, and I am so excited you are here. Wedding planning has been my passion for as long as I can remember, and I cannot wait to get to know you and share this experience with you!  I’ve spent the past 8+ years planning the most special celebrations for the coolest couples, designing breathtaking events with unique + personal touches, and traveling throughout the California coast to celebrate love! I’ve always been a planner at heart, getting my imagination rolling and putting the pen to paper at any chance I could get. After studying event planning

So many dream of their "one day wedding", and I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that as a planner and designer, I can’t help but fantasize about the dream wedding that I’d like to plan and design, FOR YOU! Picture a private estate nestled amongst the rolling hills, breathtaking views leaving guests speechless as they arrive, candlelit walkways, an abundance of flowers, black and white modern details, and the most fashionable party goers.

We strive to be the very best for our couples, and are always just an email or phone call away. “No” is never something you’ll hear from us, and you’ll always remain one of our top priorities whether 1 year away from your wedding day, 3 months away, or 1 week away.

05. Professional yet Personable

BE events Values

Every event is unique and different in it’s own special way. It’s important to us that your wedding day resembles who you are as individuals and as a couple. What is your life together like? How do you enjoy spending your time? What are some of your favorite things throughout the years of your relationship? And how can we incorporate that into your wedding day? We delicately select curated pieces to express your lives throughout each and every moment of your day and believe in making your dream day truly one of a kind.

Kristina &  Ryan

"Bari created our dream wedding.  From start to finish, she took ownership of the process, allowing us to have such a stress free engagement. We put a lot of trust in Bari, and every choice she made was perfect.  She went above and beyond to give us the most beautiful wedding I've ever seen.  You will not regret working with Bari!”

"Bari went above and beyond to give us the most beautiful wedding I've ever seen."

I believe in making every wedding one-of-a-kind and an exact resemblance of the couple whom the event is for. With a background in design and fashion, I have always loved the concept of pulling things together that are out of the ordinary, and creating something unique and beautiful from it. I am truly a modern romantic at heart, driven towards timeless and ethereal aesthetics that exude luxury and 10 years from now will still capture people's hearts. 

the mission

the California coastline, the beauty of the outdoors, interior design, minimalism, fashion,  Anthropologie catalogs, mid-century modern homes, and empty spaces where your imagination can run wild.
