About Kayla Banks

Celebrations inspire me. They're the sweet spot of life. The core of what really matters. Wrap a good love story around a celebration and I'm in my element. I wake up each day excited and ready to plan events. They're my passion! 

I was raised in San Diego and graduated from The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) with a degree in Fashion Merchandising. After college, I became a Lead Merchandiser for several national retailers. I designed the "look" for store interiors and their windows, a skill I utilize today when designing the "look and feel" for my client's events. 

It was always my dream to open my own business. All the pieces fell into place when I discovered wedding and event planning in 2001. Planning weddings and social events combines my love for style, fashion, interior design and travel. I'm constantly on high alert for inspiration for my weddings and events. Most importantly, I have a passion for creating and designing events that turn moments into unforgettable memories. 

I'm a proud member of the International Special Event Society (ISES) and I'm a certified "Professional Bridal Consultant" tm through the Association of Bridal Consultants. I take my continuing education seriously and regularly attend CE seminars hosted by ISES, Nuptial Essentials Association of Wedding Planning (NEAWP) AND Event Solutions. 

I'd be honored to help you plan your wedding or social event of your dreams!
