Owner, Founder, & Creative Director
With a background in fashion and costume design for film and television, Annette had always loved designing parties and large events, so in 2003, she decided to follow her dream and enter the world of event planning and design. She opened Simply Natural, and never looked back.
Things to know about Annette
I’m madly in love with my husband and our two dogs. I love a good glass of Pinot Noir. Rain and fog make me happy. If I wasn’t an event planner, I would probably be an oceanographer. I love period pieces (mostly for the costumes). I’m a season pass holder to Disneyland. My favorite part of a wedding is the first dance.
One of my favorite movies is Joe Versus the Volcano. I used to be on the cross country team. I’m fluent in Spanish. My husband serenades me on his guitar. My favorite part of an event is getting the dance floor going.
I studied math and classical art before making the switch to event planning almost three years ago. I can’t get enough of the fast-paced and creative world of event planning. My favorite part of an event is seeing the bride & groom’s blissfully happy faces. And working with gorgeous flowers & beautiful decor is never too bad either.
Assistant Event Planner
I grew up on the beach and love spending time with my dog Mocha. If I wasn’t an event planner, I’d own an animal shelter. I have two favorite parts of a wedding; the father daughter dance and the moment I open the doors for the grand entrance. I can never get the words congratulations out without getting choked up.
