The Ladies Behind Coastside Couture:
This story begins in 2004 with two outgoing, savvy girls (Karissa and Heidi) leaving their years of corporate hospitality management and starting their own businesses. Five years later these two event planners found themselves needing to expand and decided to join forces. Fast forward to present time where Karissa and Heidi along with their team, The Couture Girls, plan and design uniquely fabulous events all over the Monterey Bay. With hundreds of weddings under their belts and their behind the scenes knowledge, the Coastside Couture team is the perfect choice to help plan any big day.
Heidi, A.K.A "The Show" - 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 and Leo the cat. As a former chef Heidi loves cooking, and spends hours in the kitchen creating new dishes. Heidi is a Twitter junkie and a blog stalker. She could live on Brie, olives, pork belly and good bubbles.
Karissa, 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 runs every morning with her "babies" Mingus the Chihuahua and Sally the Aussie. This athletic and spunky spitfire is well known for her head full of curly locks and her quick laugh. She loves biscuits and gravy and can tell you the best places all over to get them, but is vegetarian and makes a mean veggie loco moco. Karissa doesn't own a TV and cannot stay awake in movie theaters. Her addiction to coffee is all Heidi's fault.
