Get To Know Us
Where It All Started
For over 20 years we have been serving people in our community through wedding planning, hospitality & entrepreneurship. We are passionate about marriage and the commitment we made to each other more than 10 years ago. We have two young boys and love teaching them all the lessons we have learned along the way.
During the unprecedented Covid shut down we were called to start Daring to Dream Events. Daring to Dream Events was inspired by Aubrey's mom Carla. She owned a business called Daring to Dream Designs and is now with our father in heaven. As we stood in a mustard field in San Luis Obispo contemplating what our next big move in life would be Daring to Dream Events was born. Now this new chapter in our lives has given us the vehicle to continue to go out and serve people in our community with the same passion Carla did. You never know what adventure lies around the next corner in life. For us it's taking what we have learned and embracing every moment with love, passion and commitment.
