Owner, Planner & Coordinator
She is: sassy, fierce, and heart-centered
In 2004, a sassy little Jersey girl with a Rutgers botany degree moved to San Diego. However, shortly after landing in SD, she got bit by the wedding bug and traded in her lab coat & microscope for floral clippers...and eventually traded those in for spreadsheets and clip boards, never to know the true meaning of a "weekend off" ever again.
Best parts of the job: well executed toasts; crying good tears; working with our dearest friendors; firing the confetti cannon and releasing balloon drops
Worst parts of the job: drunken, sloppy toasts; no gluten free desserts
Off the clock passions: gluten free desserts, fostering kittens, dogs who love kittens, birds of prey, electroforming, but most of all, spending time with her favorite painter and other half, Michael C Hayes
She is: fun loving, reliable, creative
Erin is a recent San Diego resident, transplanted from Denver, CO in 2016. After graduating with a degree in Apparel Merchandising, she realized she could combine her love of planning and design by entering the wedding industry. She began her career under Amanda last September and looks forward to learning the ins and outs of the wedding industry, while growing under the Sassy Little Bee name.
Best parts of the job: Watching the groom’s face as he first sees his bride, watching everyone dance, eating delicious vendor meals
Worst parts of the job: Standing for 8+ hours in uncomfortable shoes, not being an actual guest at the wedding
Off the clock passions: Cooking, crafting, lounging on the beach, discovering local eateries/breweries, thrift shopping, yoga, and hanging with her adorable kitty.
One of our longest standing foundations is that the wedding couple, their voice, and their vision are always our top priority. Working on your behalf, and in the best interest of your wedding vision, is what fuels our hive.
Staying in touch regularly with our couples is essential to maintaining wedding planning momentum. We help you stay on top of your to-do's (and even mandate wedding planning detoxes when necessary).
Logistical. Emotional. Technical. Visual.
Every step of the way.
From navigating the vast sea of options out there, to holding your dress over your head while you pee...we've got you covered.
Our Sassy Little Bee has got a checklist, spreadsheet, and a system for everything. EV-ER-Y-thing. And each wedding we help execute contains new opportunities for us to evolve and strengthen our organizational tool box!
Balancing this wild wedding world we work in with some off the clock serenity is an absolute must for us. You won't find us offering "unlimited" anything or "24/7" availability out of respect for our families and our own sanity.
