Meet Holly Stein

Holly joined the wedding industry in 2006 when she interned with acclaimed wedding planner, Mary Dann. Through her time in Mary's office she learned valuable skills about the industry as well as the level of five star service that she applies to each and every client she works with.  She also served as the event and sales manager at Franciscan Gardens where her knowledge continued to grow exponentially.

With a degree in business from Loyola Marymount University, a passion for pleasing her clients, and a high attention to detail, she takes great pleasure in allowing her clients to take a deep breath and pass off the tedious details of planning.  Her enthusiasm and compassion for all of her clients make them feel at ease and stress-free during the planning process.
