Alesha De La Cruz
Location: Orange County / Serve all of CA & Beyond
We are a Southern California-based wedding and event planning company dedicated to executing stress-free and unforgettable events. Our top priority is to go above and beyond for our clients all while creating a genuine connection. Hospitality and professionalism are ingrained in our DNA!
“I believe it's so important to have representation of all cultural heritages in every industry! Latinx/Hispanic vendors represent a large portion specifically of what California looks like and I believe it's important for couples to feel they have vendors to select from that can understand a bit of their background and not just surface-level details. Being able to relate to someone on a cultural understanding is another level of connection that can make wedding planning more of a breeze. My personal culture, Mexican heritage, is known for being hospitable – I truly believe it's literally ingrained in my DNA to provide great service to those around me and treat them as family!”
Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer
Location: Paramount CA / Serving Southern California & Beyond
I am quirky wedding and lifestyle photographer for chic and madly-in-love souls.
“So many things make us unique, from our vibrant love of life to our hard work ethics given to us by our immigrant parents. We know the sacrifices it took our parents, which allowed us to dream and build our business. I value the beautiful clients I work with and want them to feel the joy and feel alive in their images and experience in having me as their photographer! Speaking to the Latino parents and clients in Spanglish is always a great way to show that everyone is heard! Our community must be heard!”
“I was always amazed to see how Latino culture would add color and excitement to decor and overall feel of the celebrations, all while making sure every guest had a great time and felt comfortable.
In my case, I grew up in Nicaragua around cultural and social events, influenced by a mother who was the Director the National Theater and Chief of Protocol for the President at the time.
My husband worked as a dignitary to the United Nations and is the former Consul General of Panama to New York, which exposed me to a vast array of international events…and I can still say that Latinos may be the best at throwing a good party!”
