  • Catrina, owner of Catrina Maria Designs, is an award winning event designer and planner. She started her career overseeing weddings at a high end country club in Sacramento. Planning started out as a way to get herself through college and became her passion and one of her greatest loves. With experience in food and beverage, Catrina has a unique and thorough understanding of all that goes on in the catering world and gives her an edge in the wedding industry.

    I love this photo of Catrina that Jen took at Melissa and Michael's wedding at Wine and Roses. As usual Cat was very hands on!

  • Finding a Sacrame

  • We caught up with Catrina recently and threw some interview questions at her. Check out what we learned....

    What is your favorite wedding element or moment? Waiting and hoping the groom toasts his bride. It is often impromptu or often forgotten, but the moment he stops and looks her in the eye and says he is the luckiest guy alive, you know it's true. I also love the moment a couple gets to sneak a peak before anyone enters their reception. There is nothing better than hearing, "oh my gosh, Catrina, this is exactly what I dreamed of."

    Is there anything you would change about your own wedding now that you know all that you know being a planner? Wow, yes. Loved my special day, but I would have hired a planner! I have clear memories of managing everyone. I would have also done what I wanted instead of what was convenient for others. I think couple's should choose a wedding location that truly speaks to them and where their style and life is portrayed. I was married at a golf club which is not me at all. If I had to do it over, I would be married near Mammoth Mountain in an amazing spot on the Owens River that my husband's family owned for three generations.

    What do you think is the biggest thing that sets you apart from other planning and design studios? Truly full service planning and design. Couple's can come to my studio and the process is simple. They plan anything related to designing their wedding day with me. Simplifying 4 vendors into one who they trust wholeheartedly. I build a relationship with each client where I get in their heads and know what they want. We design the flowers, special decor touches and details, detailed wedding stationary, along with planning the wedding as a whole.

    I also book a maximum number of weddings each year so that I am available to each bride when she needs me. I have an incredible reputation for being easy to reach, responsive, and flexible.

    Thanks Catrina! What a fun interview. We appreciate all your candid answers!

    The below storyboards are from the wedding of Melissa and Michael which Catrina and her team planned and implemented. It was fabulous and to this day is one of our favorite albums to show off to potential clients.
