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

these two are in the final stages of planning and we just completed our final venue walkthrough this week! 
.
we walked each location talking all things layout. we envisioned all the details, walked the estate as their guests would and got the smallest glimpse of the celebration ahead. 
.
crazy to think how far we’ve come since this whole thing started. i’m inspired by the resilience of my 2020 couples. it certainly at no point was an easy road to navigate, but i promise you... this is one party that is well worth the wait!  A + A, we’ll see you in july!
