Hi my name is Samantha Ward, a wife as of May 2016 and a mother of 3 amazing boys, Aidan, Dylan and Patrick .  I feel lucky to be able to to plan weddings and events all year long, especially in San Luis Obispo County, home of the happiest city on Earth! (If you ask me, the whole Central Coast is pretty happy and wonderful.) I adore everything about weddings, entertaining and decor. (kind of obsessed!) I am  passionate about creating remarkable events for my clients, including you! This passion for wedding and event planning continues to grow day by day.  I believe your wedding should be a reflection of your individual personality and style, and I love conveying your vision through all those personal touches that make the event exclusively you! I strive to offer exceptional service through impeccable planning and fabulous designs. Let me put my skills, passion and experience to work for you!

"I have a few passions in addition to wedding planning and design.  With those other passions comes other businesses. I am a photographer of Samantha Josette Photography, and the most recent adventure of mine.... Saúde Mobile Bar , as of September of 2016, which is a bartending service for weddings and events. I always worked in restaurants from ages 16 to 26 and found myself missing those bartending days.  So why not bring my past of bartending into my present of weddings.  
I am also passionate about Art, running, soaking up the sun, playing with my kiddos every chance I can and cooking.  I just love finding fresh produce at a local farmers market or our neighborhood farm stands and creating unique dishes. "
