Saving grace

A glass of red wine

From a very early age, I was always drawn to my imagination and what I could create. I was given the platform to be a dreamer and designer in everything I did throughout my childhood. What started as a fascination with the world of fashion design quickly transitioned into a love for event design and production. With a meticulous eye for detail, I bring to each event a design perspective that is thoughtful, stylized and is truly personal.

After attending school in Chico, CA I moved to Lake Tahoe for what was supposed to be one Summer – Over ten years later, I’m still blessed to call these mountains home. I established my career managing a high-volume event rental company. Soon after I transitioned into private coordination, followed by venue coordination at one of Lake Tahoe’s premier lakefront venues. When it comes to my craft, I consider my clients collaborators and friends. It is my passion for storytelling, custom detail and showcasing who my clients are that inspired me to cultivate Beau & Arrow.

For me everything in life is a chapter and with each new chapter, brings new memories. It is a privilege for me to be a part of those moments in time with my clients.

Giving Back

At Beau & Arrow, we believe in an event that makes a difference. In addition to supporting artisans and local businesses whenever possible, we strive to give back. A percentage of all full-service event planning contracts are donated to our client’s local non-profit of choice.

We are honored to support the following in our local community:
League to Save Lake Tahoe • High Fives Foundation • Sugar Pine Foundation • Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care • Live Violence Free
