Onyx + Redwood, formerly Bijoux Events, is a full service wedding planning, design, and specialty rental company based in Santa Barbara, California.  We travel near and far to create memories through our events. We produce small intimate gatherings, large-scale celebration's, and anywhere in between. We understand that not only does an event's success lie in the planning, but that the memory lies in the attention to detail and the personal relationship built with the client. We like outside of the box thinking and appreciate the creative process that develops unexampled guest experiences.  We are known for our vibrant and colorful energy, ability to make things happen, professionalism, hard work, and demand for great service. We constantly monitor and interact with many local special events to broaden our knowledge of great event production while implementing aspects of current trends but still weaving in those personal touches to make every event genuine.  Are you ready?


Wife. Mother of two rugrats. Laugh like a PEZ dispenser, with my mouth wide open and my head way back. Proudly use the word Hella, as I am a Bay Area Native. Love a good 'Farm To Bar' Chopin Greyhound. The louder the music, the better, preferably EDM, but I'll pretty much blare anything, especially my girl Rhi-Rhi! I love antique shopping and am obsessed with HGTV shows, and with no shame, Reality TV. If I could live anywhere, it would be in a Restoration Hardware catalog or at the Anthropologie store in New York. I own cowboy boots {nickname is "Boots"} and leopard print pumps. I used to eat my weight in cheese and sushi, until I became Vegan.  So now, I will eat you under the table when it comes to fruits and veggies. I carry a bottle of hot sauce in my car and I love to drive fast.  I’m high energy and hard working. I talk too fast and I truly believe that I was meant to be the third Gilmore Girl. I inhale what life has to offer, good or bad, and I am not afraid to voice my opinion!


I am a very driven and extremely passionate when it comes to weddings and events.  I have a constant need to be creative and must be working on some sort of project at all times. I’ve had a love for art history, architecture and design since I was very young and continuously nurtured it through classes, especially in college where I minored in it.   I love being busy and working, don’t get me wrong though, I enjoy vegging out too. Vacation is a must! It’s all about the balance. I am addicted to BRAVO TV and love any show produced by Andy Cohen. Laughing and making others laugh is a necessity, I tend to have a very dry sense of humor and love comedy by Amy Schumer, Chelsea Handler but since having kids I completely relate to Michael McIntyre. I have two young children who keep me on my toes at all times!  I love to read and will read just about anything when I have the time. I’ve lived in many different states and cities but, I seem to always come back to my hometown of Santa Barbara as I am a true ”local” from Montecito, born and raised. I’ve been in the event industry for over 18 years and would not be happier in any other profession. I have an incredible eye for detail and am truly dedicated and enthusiastic about making your wedding day as beautiful and memorable as ever.

O+R Team

The team of wedding professionals I pull together for each of my events, is unique every time. My clients vision, personality, and of course budget, is what drives the creative collaboration, and is what makes my job so much fun! I want each and every wedding that I do, be a true reflection of who my clients are, and always find touching ways to incorporate special details that are distinctive to them. I am a huge advocate for my clients, and I work very hard to ensure they receive the best service, quality products and memorable experience throughout the planning process as well as on the wedding day. My experience and years in the industry, along with the relationships I have cultivated, can provide this. I also take very good care of my vendors, as I am a firm believer in staying local, if possible, and supporting your events community. As a village, we thrive!

O+R Rentals

Over the years I have found it difficult at times to find the right design elements for my clients that were more than just your average rentals.  I believe in going local first, but also found that going to LA meant hefty delivery fees and minimums for my clients.  I don't believe in spending money, just to spend it.  I believe in quality over quantity.  I also am a believer that we all need to be a part of the solution and not continue to be a part of the problem, by doing nothing.  Because of this, we now offer grounding stoneware plates made right here in California, rare ceramic chargers directly from the artists who create them, and other uncommon items, such as bold woven grass chargers from Africa that empower women and help bring an end to poverty worldwide.  Don't just make it pretty, make it matter!  We can't wait to collaborate with you!
