This fall, Brian joined Bold and brought an impressive arsenal of high-profile event experience with him. With 16+ years in wedding and event planning, he has designed for celebrity clients and broadcast events like the Emmys and the Teen Choice Awards. His West Coast vibes shine through across inspired weddings & corporate events and his passion for eco-friendly event production.

Brian’s event hallmark? Upscale personalization and customization to fit his clients’ wants and needs. For this Texan couple getting married in California, Brian created a beautiful, rustic reception. To accommodate the large bridal party, Brian created a 54-person head table topped with arrangements of white roses, eucalyptus, greenery and over 100 flickering candles. The University of Texas marching band played their alma mater’s fight song as guests moved into the after party: The UT longhorn and a block-print letter H for the couple’s last name made its way into the wedding logo, placed atop the ballroom’s fireplace.

For Emme’s bat mitzvah, Brian took a spin on the birthday girl’s name with an Emmy-themed bash: Emme’s name in stylized script served as the event logo and could be found on personalized details like throw pillows on tufted leather sofas, Emmy Award-inspired signage, the red carpet backdrop, and an eyecatching dancefloor. TV-inspired activities at the party included a “Bachelor”-inspired photo op with a rose-print background, a “Project Runway” station for screenprinting sweatshirts, and an “ESPN Zone” for sports fanatics.

At this warm-weather outdoor wedding, Brian combined aesthetics with practicality: Umbrellas and tree cover lent the guests some shade during the ceremony, and each seat was topped with a fan to help beat the heat. Dark wood signage, floating white lanterns, lime green accents, and an aisle lined with hurricanes of hydrangeas and greenery created a classically beautiful scene.

When a company wanted to show off their sustainability chops at their event, Brian designed a casino night filled with potted plants, trees, and succulents that could be replanted or reused after the event, trimming down on waste. Cut flowers wouldn’t flow with the sustainable sensibility, but this long-lasting greenery proved to be just as pretty and super on-trend. Over 500 solar-powered lights created an intimate atmosphere throughout the event.

Brian’s also got destination weddings down: This oceanfront wedding is a color lover’s dream! The ceremony’s exquisite altar of driftwood & orange florals and sleek wooden benches with colorful throw pillows created a simple yet stunning setting. Reception details like driftwood-inspired menus accented with fuchsia, custom-made teal malachite-print table runners from a water color by Ceci Johnson, and lush florals of yellow, orange, fuchsia & teal created a vibrant, elegant party on the beach.
