Each event is carefully planned and designed by owner Angel Swanson. Angel’s educational background includes two bachelor degrees from the University of California at Berkeley, where she studied Italian history and political science. She also spent time in law school and studying at Harvard. While she demonstrated much promise in the legal arena, she felt an urge to pursue a more creative career path that would foster and utilize her artistic side. L&S is built on Angel’s personal style and aesthetic, as well as the highest level of service for our clientele. As an excellent communicator and seasoned public speaker and writer, Angel is able to translate a client’s vision to other vendors and bring it to fruition. Angel is lauded by her clients as fashion-forward, confident, encouraging and sincere. Her exuberance and joy in each endeavor truly make an impact on her clients and their guests. Angel is married to her college sweetheart, Erik, and is the mother of a lovely little girl named Olivia Iris (aka Olive).

We’ve been honored to grace the pages of some of our favorite publications, as well as have our work featured numerous times on the very best wedding and entertaining blogs around the web.
