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 7 years curating magical days for the coolest couples, designing breathtaking events with the most special touches, and traveling throughout the California coast to help 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

Every girl dreams of her 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 modern black and white private estate nestled amongst the rolling hills, breathtaking views leaving guests speechless as they arrive, candlelit walkways, an abundance of flowers, and the most fashionable party goers. 

To the modern, romantic bride...

"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 event one-of-a-kind and an exact resemblance of the couple or client 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 a timeless and ethereal aesthetic that 10 years from now will still capture peoples hearts.
