Happy New Year, Happy New Blog!!

Susan and I are both super excited about the re-design and launch of our new website and blog! We hope you like our new look as much as we do. Our website is always a work in progress, so we welcome your feedback and comments, and remind you to keep coming back to see recently added pictures.
Susan and I have set an internal goal to 'Blog' on a weekly basis (okay, so that might be a stretch goal) be sure to put us on your list to see our regular updates. We will be publishing pics from recent weddings, industry events we attend, as well as new innovative ideas that we love, with a splash of fun stuff about Susan and I.
We are so excited for the new year, and are pumped about our '09 couples that have chosen us to help them create their amazing weddings!
Love, the Bella Girls!

Meet Bella Weddings

Bella Weddings & Events is the collaboration of friends, Kathy Mazza and Susan White. Founded in 2005, Bella Weddings & Events is a premier full service event coordination company, specializing in all phases of wedding coordination and event design. Kathy and Susan’s mission is to translate their clients’ ideas, personal style and vision into an unforgettable day. With the myriad of details and attention that must go into coordinating a stunning wedding, both Kathy and Susan are poised to help expertly manage all details in both an efficient and exquisite manner. Their caring demeanors help to make the often stressful wedding planning experience be a pleasure from start to finish.

Originally from Texas, Kathy has carried with her that unmistakable Southern charm and opulence into her life as an event planner. After graduating from Southwest Texas State University, Kathy was ready for a change and fresh opportunities, so she headed west to Los Angeles. Meanwhile, thousands of miles away, Susan was raised in New Jersey, on the traditionally fast-paced, chic East Coast. When college at UCLA brought her to Los Angeles, Susan fell in love with the city and found her new home. Similar social circles brought Kathy and Susan together in 1999, when they met as members of the same sorority alumni group and the Junior League. With both women having a penchant for parties, they combined their skills and complimenting diverse backgrounds to form Bella Weddings & Events. Now, with over 12 years of combined event planning and wedding coordination experience, Kathy and Susan bring together the perfect mix of modern style and traditional elements to help clients plan the wedding of their dreams.

Bella Weddings & Events has been featured in People Magazine, The Knot, Modern Bride, Bride & Bloom, Ceremony, Los Angeles Times, The Bride's Cafe and voted “Best Wedding Planner” for Fox LA’s “Hot List.”
