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

this is everything vintage wedding gown dreams are this is everything vintage wedding gown dreams are made of. our bride’s dress was a treasured heirloom and passed down through generations of her family. best part of it all; come her time to wear it... it fit her like a glove.

gather, eat, laugh + celebrate. the holidays & wed gather, eat, laugh + celebrate. the holidays & weddings sure do have a lot in common. december, we welcome you (and this early winter weather) with open arms. we’re soaking in every last second of this year and the memories created, yet looking forward to all that next year brings... but until then it’s all things spiced cider, twinkle lights & mistletoe!
