The Team

Sheila Foster - Coordinator/Owner


 I'm a San Diego native, born and raised in Rancho Penasquitos and graduated from Mt. Carmel High School. I played tennis all my life, and it got me an athletic scholarship to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, where I picked up a business degree along the way. After college I moved to several cities but found myself back in my hometown where I couldn't be happier! I share my life with my amazing husband Rion, our awesome son Harrison, our sweet girl Dylan, and fur baby Danni.

I've always had a passion for decorating, planning and parties. It all led me to the career I know and love....WEDDINGS! I'm highly organized, creative and experienced. I truly love what I do and can't wait to meet and start planning with you!

Katie Lanning - Coordinator


 I was born and raised in California wine country, and relocated to San Diego when my husband and I tied the knot! Randy and I have been married for 10 years and have 3 beautiful boys, Randy II, Brogan, and Kallen.

I am passionate about my family, my faith, and being artistically creative! I also love weddings! Over the last 7 years I have worked different facets of the wedding industry and it has become a joy and passion of mine to work along side couples to help make their dream weddings come to fruition!

Athenee Willis - Coordinator


I have a love and passion for all things events, with creativity, planning, design and details running deep in my soul. Collectively, I have over 10 years of experience as an executive assistant, corporate event manager & wedding planner. 

When I'm not immersed in bringing your wedding and event dreams to reality, you can find me outdoors with my family or out planning my next creative project with my husband. Jesse and I have been blessed with over 17 years of marriage together. Raising our four amazing boys, Camren, Izaac, Graysen & Owen and last but not least, our four legged puppy rescue, Myles. Organized chaos is my jam and there's never a dull moment at the Willis household.


We hired Sheila as our day-of-coordinator and we couldn't have been more pleased. She was very thorough, communicative, and brought a lot of her own ideas to the table to help us out. She is the definition of great customer service. She made sure to put our needs first the entire day. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding coordinator.
