Permission to Be Yourself
Serving California & Destinations Worldwide
with modern wedding planning
What if I told you that your wedding could be unlike anything you’ve experienced before? Wildly original, radically fun, and a conversation topic for years to come…
From my home base in Santa Barbara to idyllic locations around the globe, I plan weddings that break the mold and transcend expectations, weddings that really channel the pulse and feel of who you are—as individuals, and as a couple.
I give you permission to be yourself.

The creative force behind Onyx and Redwood
I am a born rule bender, boundary pusher, and party planner.
While beautiful weddings hold their charm, my real passion lies in collaborating with those who envision an extraordinary journey, a wedding that defies norms, encapsulating their unique stories and aspirations.
Fueled by my dynamic energy and meticulous attention to detail, I masterfully blend the unconventional with the refined – seamlessly fusing eccentricity and opulence.
From sun-soaked Santa Barbara nuptials to destination extravaganzas set against the backdrop of the most captivating landscapes, I'm here, wholeheartedly devoted to turning dreams into reality.

I can truly say that our whole wedding weekend was absolutely flawless thanks to Jess and her team. I don’t know too many brides who can say that and to me that is invaluable!

Jess knew me and what I wanted better than I knew myself, and the end product was everything I could have ever wanted and more. I would recommend her to anyone who wants their true love story told!
