about maria

I’ve always had a deep passion for organizing and event planning, alongside design. 
I believe that every special event deserves to be pretty, aligned with who you are (shown in my favorite part of all, the little details), beautifully executed and fun!

Originally a Midwest girl, I made my way from Ann Arbor Michigan to the Napa Valley in 2006 and never looked back.  I am a mother to a sweet and loving 10-year-old daughter, Lucia who loves to swim, dance, and draw.  I myself love to get my creative juices flowing by crafting, and anything music.  I love to travel, volunteer and of course, sample some of the best wines that Napa and Sonoma has to offer

 BYS Events + Design  I started BYS Events + Design so I can help you to create a memorable, and custom once in a lifetime kind of event  To make your wildest dreams come true and to be a steady source of guidance along your planning journey - I got your back! 

You are not in this crazy, stressful, exciting time alone.  By the time your event is over, I hope that you have not only had an awesome event, but that you feel as though you have a new friend.   My team and I will do everything in our power to make sure your event is just how you dreamed it would be.  I've got an amazing team by my side, and I am so grateful that I am able to do what makes me happy, which is make others happy.  

 I can't wait to meet you and get to know you so we can plan the best.day.ever.
