About Megan

 My passion for event planning stems from my love for DIY creations, art, nature, fetes with family and friends and most importantly — making people happy! Prior to Festive, I wrote for a number of leading publications, covering topics from fashion and culture to local events, and was inspired to take my creative side into the wedding planning business after planning my own colorful, festive Santa Barbara wedding. After assisting a few of the top planners in the region, I launched Festive Event Planning — and I haven’t looked back since!

While I’m inclined toward bohemian, gypset-inspired designs (Moroccan tiles, vintage ikat textiles and crochet accents, anyone?) I also love modern aesthetics; rustic, handcrafted trends and opulent designs. But all in all, I love taking my inspiration from my clients and the process of truly finding the design scheme that speaks to their personalities and intentions for the particular event. Whether it’s a tropical-themed bridal shower or a black-tie wedding, I delight in bringing our cumulative vision to life.

Currently, I reside in the beautiful city of Thousand Oaks, California —- though I’m always up for the next adventure! — with my husband/partner-in-love Bobby and our two furry best friends, Max and Cali .

I look forward to working with you and making your dreams a reality!
