the lady with many hats! I am a wedding planner, photographer, artist, barmaid but most importantly a wife & mother. But someone asked me once who is Samantha. I of course listed all of the above, However; i was quickly stopped. She said "no i didn't ask what you do. I asked who are you? What makes Samantha.... Samantha?" Boy did this stump me for a minute. if my professions & life roles aren't how i should describe myself than I guess it would go something like this......

PHotography is a great joy i have in my life. It started as an artistic expression & later turned into this wonderful business. I am so lucky to be able to capture beautiful images of others' most joyous times.

Suprise Proposal at Catalina airport in the sky
Catalina CA, February 4th 2017
my first big adventure as an entrepreneur was starting my business Memory Making events. I have always dreamed of it but never thought it was going to be a reality. Well luckily living in San Luis Obispo County made this dream a wonderful reality. After earning a degree in Interior Design, working a few years with a design company while taking online courses in wedding planning, I was ready to take the leap into the wonderful world of weddings I live in now.
Remember how i said I had a degree in Interior design? well, something had to pay those bills while in school. I've always worked in restaurants since i was 16 and worked my way up to a bartender just days after i turned 21. I loved every minute of bartending and as i've grown into a "seasoned" adult i've been dreaming up the next great crafted cocktail. Well since I'm already integrated in the wedding industry it was a great fit for me to start a wedding and event bartending service ......
while specializing in custom signature drinks for my clients using house made infused syrups & providing professional Bartenders i am confident that SAÚDE Mobile bar is the modern yet old fashioned bartending service that everyone desires
My business home.... The Wedding Space. A place where I get to share space, laughter, stories, advice with these 4 other suite mates of mine. A place where i get to invite my clients to go over details of their wedding or event. The home of my office space where I sit many hours at my desk to make sure to provide the best service to all my clients.
The Wedding Space consists of 5 wedding professionals including myself. The other 4 suite mates are not only business colleagues but some of my best friends.
