Welcome to the blog of Together for Better Events, where we will share our most important lessons, special moments, and the little things in between. We can’t wait to get started!
We are not your typical coordinators. We are a male and female couple who are passionate about living life through laughter and love and bring that to our couples. When it came time to develop our branding we knew we didn’t want to be like other coordinators in Southern California. We want to break the mold of “traditional” planning. Most wedding planners are solo and female which can typically leave the conversation one-sided. You will often hear grooms saying, “whatever my fiance says is fine. Just tell me when I have to be there”. We want our brides and grooms to both feel included. This day is just as special to the groom as it is to the bride. Your wedding day should be a celebration of your love for one another and your journey together.
The name of our company is inspired by a short inspirational story Adrian introduced me to, Together is Better by Simon Sinek. This short story inspired us to help others and discover our own courage. Life is about choices. Simon Sinek says there is one choice that affects how we feel about our journey: Do we go alone or do we go together? Our couples have chosen to go Together, for Better.
Adrian and I decided to leave our jobs in hospitality on the East Coast and move to San Diego, California. We packed up our car with everything we owned, plus my dog Teagan, and drove across country leaving behind friends and family. When we arrived in San Diego we spent over a week living out of our car and hotels until we could find an apartment. The experience of moving to a place you’re unfamiliar with and not having family or friends to lean on is so rewarding. We have both grown so much as individuals and as a couple.
It has always been a dream of mine to start my own coordinating business and the doors started to open when we moved to San Diego. We wouldn’t have been able to do it without the support of so many vendors in Southern California, especially from Emily and Ryan of Emry Photography. They’re truly amazing to work with. We would recommend them to any couple looking for a photographer in San Diego, Temecula or Orange County.
Your wedding day is a celebration of your love for one another. We will make the planning process fun and enjoyable, as it should be. That is why our first meeting usually begins by grabbing drinks and getting to know our couples story, their likes, dislikes, and dreams. Having a coordinator the day of your wedding is one of the most important things that most couples regret not having in the end. Your wedding day will fly by so fast. Don’t allow things like seating charts, vendor arrival, ceremony procession etc. distract you form enjoying every moment of this day. You can count on us to deliver a seamless experience for you and your guests.
We are excited to share our journey with you and the stories of our amazing couples. Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress. Working hard for something we love is called passion. This is our passion. Thank you to all our friends and family for being so supportive!
Live, Laugh, Love
Alexis & Adrian
