Meet Mandi


I have fallen head over heels in LOVE with weddings. After planning many “parties”, it only took the first friend’s wedding I was asked to plan to know, this was my passion. After obsessing over every wedding show on TV in 2004, my favorite being, “Who’s Wedding Is It Anyway?” and pouring over all the latest bridal magazines, I knew that I wanted to become a wedding planner. My experience in restaurants developed the sense of urgency and customer satisfaction I craved, since I have been known  to be a people pleaser. I would be the first to sign up for events such as “First Tee” in Pebble Beach or the occasional catering job for an employee wedding. Working in an office helped develop my professional and business traits, especially accounting. (I secretly enjoy the business side as much as the creative planning side).

I founded A Sparkling Event in 2010 with the intent to be a full time planner, successful business entrepreneur, and a continuously growing company. Real motivation? I wanted to be self employed and make my own schedule. With the urge to network and be present in my community, I joined Monterey Bay Wedding Professionals and am currently the President on the board.  I am dedicated to educating myself through hiring mentors, attending workshops, seminars, and conferences. You will even find me enrolled in college during the off-season where I am pursuing a Bachelors degree in Business.

A Sparkling Event is deeply invested in the satisfaction of every client and their wedding vision. We want to be the one by your side to bring your dream to life, create a stress free environment, and work hard to ensure your family and guests but most importantly, YOU the couple enjoy every moment of the most magical day of your lives together. We bring years of experience but truly pride ourselves in hearing your ideas where we are not afraid to respectfully tell you, we would love to help you do that! We are honored to be chosen to be a part of magic, will you let us make your event a sparkling one?

  • Disneyland
  • My Daddy, yes, I am a daddy’s girl and only child at that.
