In January 2021, when my business officially gained her legs (yes, she’s a lady) I met Megan and her mother, Allison via Zoom to discuss future wedding coordinating services.  They were on the cusp of booking a gorgeous venue in San Luis Obispo and excited to start planning all the details.  Shortly after our call, […]

In November 2020, my good friend Chris came to me with a secret; one he needed help with planning and keeping from his girlfriend.  With its roots in beautifully designed one-of-a-kind memories, we decided to use my other company Talk About a Party to curate the perfect moment for Chris to ask the most important […]

My favorite kind of referral is from/within a family I love.  About 5 years ago I planned a gorgeous wedding for my client turned friend Suzanne, and we have remained pals ever since.  Cut to my getting “the” call from her brother Peter and his fiancé Stephanie to talk about planning for their special day […]

August 30, 2021 – an inquiry came through to Always Allegra Events titled “my wedding is a shitstorm”. I read the title and immediately just called the number associated with the inquiry – Mel picks up and gasps “I’m so glad you called – I need you!” At this given point, I do not know […]

September 18, 2021 It feels just like yesterday, meeting Jenna at sorority recruitment during our freshman year of college and our little 18-year-old selves “preffing” the same house. Fate took a different turn, and we didn’t follow each other into the same house, but we remained good friends over the years.  My favorite memory of Jenna was sneaking […]

I was absolutely overjoyed when Kori had asked me to be her wedding planner! I met Kori in my college days at California State University Northridge. We were a part of the same sorority, Delta Zeta, but we really connected and clicked when we started a bi-weekly coffee date where we would catch up and […]

La Jolla, California I had a blast coordinating Chelsea and Brian’s beautiful winter wedding in La Jolla, CA. Chelsea and Brian were referred to me by my previous clients – Lauren and Patrick.

Lauren and Patrick’s wedding at Triunfo Creek in Agoura Hills, CA was the sentimental and special day we had all been waiting for. Lauren and Patrick are high school sweethearts, and had been together for ten years before deciding to tie the knot! Also, I will say that this day was all the more memorable […]

I’ve been blessed to be born into quite the last name. Allegra— a verb in the beautiful Italian language “to be happy” is a clear depiction of what I always strive to be. Someday, I believe I’ll get married and have the choice to change my last name. As I am confident I will decide to, I do know one thing is certain — I’ll always be Allegra.

Life could take me many directions, but one promise to myself is to always strive to be happy - with that, we have
Always Allegra.
