A.K.A “The Show”
Heidi worked her first wedding as a server at a Bed and Breakfast at age 16, and was hooked! Obsessions include coffee, Audrey Hepburn movies, books, food and wine, travel, high heels and anything that sparkles. When Heidi’s not working on fabulous events you can find her hanging out with her Hubby, two children, two dogs Biscuit and Gravy and Leo the cat. As a former Chef Heidi loves cooking, and spends hours in the kitchen creating new dishes. She loves yoga and her beach cruiser. Heidi is a twitter junkie and a blog stalker. She could live on Brie, olives, pork belly and good bubbly.
A.K.A. “Little Miss Sunshine”
Passions include flip flops, adventure, anything pink, frilly and lacy, the ocean, wine, and her little “black book” of connections. She loves to mountain bike in the mud with her Hubby and run with her “babies” Mingus the Chihuahua and Sally the Aussie. This athletic spit fire is well known for her head full of curly locks and her quick laugh. This spunky planner loves biscuits and gravy and can tell you the best places all over the state to order them. Karissa doesn’t own a TV and cannot stay awake in movie theaters. The newest addition to her clan is her sweet son Miles, who is destined to be the ultimate Cali beach kid.
This recent graduate from San Jose State University with a degree in Hospitality Management is at the center of most things going on with Coastside Couture. She has been with Coastside Couture since beginning of 2012 when she started as an intern. She loves all the details that go into planning an event, and her favorite moment of a wedding is seeing the happy couple bust a move on the dance floor (or when the cake comes out). She is a big fan of french fries, reality TV shows, and desserts, especially donuts and cookies!
