I'm Raymond, an event planner + designer curating celebrations across the golden coast. My fascination for events began as a child being entertained with spectacular birthday parties and events hosted by my parents who demonstrated the magic of personal touches and social charm. With such influences, I grew up sharing this passion by coordinating school dances and statewide conferences.
After achieving a Bachelors Degree in Graphic Design from San Jose State University, I left my five year position with The City of Fremont as a Facilities & Sales Coordinator, implementing events. I went on to create Event and Wedding Stationary, Event Props and Décor. Though I was able to express my creativity through various avenues I found myself looking for something with heart.
It was then I was approached by longtime friends to help with the coordination and design of their wedding. By night's end, guests parted ways yet all the pieces came together for me. And life has been an absolute ball ever since.
In addition to events and weddings, I volunteer my time with non-profit organizations such as the Yu-Ai Kai Senior Center and the Project MORE Foundation. And you better believe I'm a full supporter of Marriage Equality. #loveislove
I can't wait to work together. Cheers!
