Grand Hope Events started as an idea for a series of school project between two business majors at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. It was at a small park, between Grand and Hope in the heart of downtown Los Angeles, Jacqueline and Farryn envisioned the company. Shortly after graduation, the two graduates set out to create their dreams to their reality.
Meet Jacqueline , Co-Founder and Lead Event Planner:
Hello there! My name is Jacqueline and I am a So-Cal native with a background in fashion and I love love, (oh traveling,and desserts too, I would also travel for desserts) ! I still cry at weddings, whether it's during the vows, speeches or during father-daughter dances, its a guarantee that I'll shed those happy tears. I fell in love with planning and designing weddings when I was a teenager and was a part of several weddings and I also had a chance to intern with an event planner. I studied product development and business management at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising where my love for fashion and events bloomed. Shortly after graduation, I planned my own wedding and with the help of some great vendors and a day-of coordinator I felt so at peace during my big day and I was able to enjoy it and not to worry! It was that peace and enjoyment that I want to share to my clients, whether you're a bride/groom/mothers of a bride or groom or even a corporate client. I want you to be able to fully enjoy your day without the worries of logistics. With my fashion background I pull inspiration from runway shows, couture clothing, and art to design an unforgettable event. I believe that building a strong genuine relationship with my clients is crucial in the planning process, think of me as your best friend that's planning your big day, you can lean on me during stressful times and we can grab dessert when you want to indulge. Shoot me an email, say hello, can't wait to meet you!
