Meet Karla

Founder & Chief Latina Event Planner

She was born and raised in Caracas - Venezuela, but she’s also half Costa Rican from her mom’s side.

Karla has a bachelor’s degree in computer science and also a graduate certificate in Business and Marketing from UCLA Extension. In 2010, at her former full-time job, she realized that she really enjoyed planning their events and found it especially gratifying to see all the international students happy and having fun at each event even though they were away from home.

Since 2015, she has been fortunate enough to help hundreds of couples bring their wedding dreams to life and be the witness to a once-in-a-lifetime moment. She loves to see all her favorite things in one room: Love, family togetherness, cultures & traditions when it comes to weddings.

In her free time, she likes going to the beach and listening to the waves, “It’s so relaxing!” she says. She also loves going out with her friends and finding new restaurants in L.A. Traveling is a must when time allows it, especially to visit her family.
