I moved to Tahoe to immerse myself in skiing, mountain biking, paddle boarding, and every outdoor activity that fueled my active spirit. After 14 years, I am still in love with the lifestyle, the community, and the proximity to all of my favorite outdoor activities.
I established my career in producing events in 2004. After managing a variety of corporate, social, and wedding events at hotels, I founded One Fine Day Events, an event planning company focused on producing unrivaled weddings and social events at private estates and resorts in Lake Tahoe. Our work has been published in notable magazines and blogs around the country including Coastal Living, Martha Stewart, The Knot, Style Me Pretty, CNBC, and several more. In 2010, I founded Tahoe Unveiled to provide a one-stop shop resource and blog for Tahoe bound couples seeking quality vendors to produce their wedding. The blog has been noted as one of the best destination wedding blogs in the country.
After planning over 375 events in Tahoe, I launched OFD Productions to focus on combining both the unrivaled celebrations we are renowned for producing, along with the outdoor adventures we live for. Becoming both well traveled in Tahoe and well connected to all of Tahoe's outdoor geeks and gurus, provides us with limitless access to once in a lifetime experiences.
As principal planner Vanessa has planned and executed numerous high-profile events with magnificent success and is adored by our clients and the many vendors we work alongside. She has the ability to organize and streamline even the most disorganized clients with ease and grace.
Vanessa started at our sister company, One Fine Day Events, with years of restaurant management and event experience and her keen eye for design was quickly revealed. As a designer, Vanessa works very closely with our clients to help determine their style before the design process even begins. Always an innovator, Vanessa is responsible for coming up with unexpected decor accents that our clients didn’t realize they loved. Vanessa is the type of planner that does not rest until she knows she has nailed every single aspect of the client's vision to a tee. Her favorite part is when everything comes alive on the event day and seeing the happiness spread across the faces of the guests.
