TESSA LYN BRAND - OWNER / COORDINATOR - tessa@tessa.com

 

Since I was a young girl, I always lived for planning parties and hosting friends.  Naturally, as I grew older, I found myself enthralled with weddings.  After achieving success in the film business for nearly a decade, I decided to start over and make a career out of my first love; weddings and events.  I quickly realized that many of the skills I had mastered running movie sets were perfectly in line with wedding coordination, and this background made me truly unique.   With over 500 weddings under my belt I have found my true passion.

 

Watching two people dedicate their lives to one another, while surrounded by family and friends, is a magical moment to witness.  I take great pride in creating a celebration that lives up to those moments.  My goal is to personalize every event making it as unique as the bride and groom, while ensuring total organization so they can enjoy the entire engagement as well as every single moment of their wedding day.  

 

When I am not planning weddings, I am a mom to two beautiful daughters and wife to my incredible husband (who is a wedding videographer!).  I am on a leadership board for USC, and I actively contribute to City of Hope cancer treatment center.

Kathryn looks at each wedding as an opportunity to create a truly magical and unforgettable event that the clients will never forget.  Organized and driven, seeing every detail executed perfectly and bringing each client's vision to reality is her favorite part of the job.

TORI ARONOW - SENIOR COORDINATOR - Tori@tessa.com

 

Tori has been with Tessa Lyn Events for 5 years, first assisting, and was quickly promoted to a lead coordinator due to spectacular performance.  Her first wedding as a lead was featured in People Magazine!!   To say we are lucky to have her is an understatement.    Her fresh perspective, fun personality, and creative ideas put the clients at ease as soon as they start working with her.
