My name is Jessica Carrillo and I'm so glad you're here! I'm obsessed with weddings and my heart is at the core of Art & Soul Events®. I feel so THANKFUL that I get to spend my days with amazing couples while we PLAN one of their life's major milestones.


I plan and design weddings for the bold, rebellious, and creative! I plan weddings that are soulful and that uniquely reflect my couple's style and aesthetic. I love pairing creative bold and unexpected choices with beautiful design. I will encourage you to make thoughtful decisions that are true to your priorities, personalities, and relationship. I don't believe that things have to be done the way they have always been done. This is your wedding, there are no rules!

I still cry at almost every wedding and feel so lucky to play an instrumental role in such an incredible day. Developing relationships with my couples is a critical part of my process. I want to build a solid foundation, so you feel my support and genuine investment in you. Wedding Planning is exciting and fun but it can also be emotional and stressful at times. Expectations, budgets, and family dynamics all come into play. I'll be here to lean on and guide you every step of the way.

I am a Los Angeles based Wedding and Event Planner, but LOVE to travel!  Weddings take us on adventures all over Southern California and the central coast. You'll often find me planning and designing weddings in Joshua Tree, Palm Springs, Santa Barbara, wine country, Santa Cruz, the Sequoias, and beyond. I jump at the chance to conquer a new venue or town!

            Are we soulmates? If so, CONTACT me!  Read LOVE NOTES and rave reviews from our Art & Soul Couples.
