Jacquelyn grew up in Northern California but now lives in Southern California with her husband Nate, pup Dolly and the newest member of their family, son Court James. Jacquelyn loves spending time with her family, taking Dolly for walks on the beach, anything fitness, and traveling. She loves to travel to Portugal where her dad was born and often relates much of her design inspiration from her culture, including the name Beijos Events, which means kisses in Portuguese. After studying theater in college, Jacquelyn transitioned to a career in fashion, leading to her love for all things pretty and stylish! Jacquelyn fell in love with event design while planning her own Carmel wedding. She realized she could put her eye for style and penchant for planning to good use creating beautiful events for others. Jacquelyn is the jokester of the group, poking fun, and keeping Abby and Leah on their toes. She is the Beijos weapon as she has unique ideas for any event that may occur big or small.
Abby is our Northern California native. She resides in the Bay Area with her hubby Mike and two littles, Dylan Ashley and Jett Jagger. In her downtime, you can find Abby with one of her many pieces of beautiful glassware in hand, filled with her favorite lambrusco. Tuesdays are generally known as “Dance Party Tuesdays” at the Guido home, and more often than not she is barefoot and enjoying the California sun. This Beijos lady may seem California chill but she has a little case of OCD… ok, a lot! She is the organization master, the one making sure we are all on task and getting everything done. The multi-tasking extraordinaire, Abby can send emails, cook a dinner, play dollhouse and Cars, and talk on the phone all at once! Her interior design background led to her love for event planning and design and gave her the eye for styling adding that special touch with clients. She also uses her perfectionism when working with our clients on creating that perfect photo op, and who doesn’t love that!?
Leah was born and raised in Southern California, now settled in Orange County with her hubby Damon, little one Edie Lola, two pups Daisy and Ivy, and Violet the cat. Leah is our mellow one and is as sweet as it gets. She is a fashionista at heart with a classic style. She loves anything timeless yet unique. You will never find Leah un-accessorized – her arms are usually stacked with bracelets and baubles. Leah loves spending any downtime with her little love Edie, her hilarious husband, family and friends… especially when a good bottle of Pinot Noir is involved! Leah brings her MBA and fashion background to event styling, and often relates to her Mexican heritage for inspiration in her design. This lovely latina can do anything from creating the perfect photo backdrop to mastering a beautiful bouquet all while having the perfect hair (we are all jealous). Leah is our perfectionist and our crafter, her attention to detail helps to keep each and every project looking its best for every client.
