Driven by her love for celebrations and a devotion to the details, Rachel has built her career on creating gorgeous events that people will remember for a lifetime.
With a minor in interior design and a love for fashion at a young age, Rachel’s always had her finger on the pulse of the latest design and style trends. While her personal style is a bold and modern aesthetic complimented by soft feminine touches, her designer DNA loves all good design. From timeless to on-trend and classic to modern chic, Rachel brings each client’s unique vision to life as a seamlessly executed, one-of-a-kind event.
Making other people happy is what fuels Rachel both personally and professionally. Her (perfectly organized) schedule keeps her on-the-go and her good energy always follows. As past president and current board member of WIPA Phoenix (Wedding International Professionals Association), a PANDA board member for the Steele Children’s Research Center and member of Entrepreneur’s Organization (EO Arizona), she’s fiercely dedicated to her industry and community. Rachel’s also a devoted wife to her husband Mikis of eight years, super mom to her toddler son Asher, her family and her close-knit group of girlfriends who are more like sisters.
Rachel has an open-door policy with her heart and her home, with a special ability to make everyone from her clients and team members, to vendors and friends feel the love.
