About Makenna

A fairy godmother in training at heart, Makenna has a knack for turning even unspoken hopes & dreams into reality with a little bit of daydreaming, hard work, and of course a bit of magic.

With a unique set of  self-taught & professional skills, Makenna is better known for bringing fresh, organized, joy-filled dedication to any project or event. After several years gaining extensive hospitality, accounting and guest service experience in corporate California, she recently began working full-time as Shop Owner, Sales, Marketing & Fulfillment Specialist at her own company, Sirena Ventures (fun fact: ‘sirena’ is Spanish for ‘mermaid’).

After her better half, Manny, popped the question in the most “mermaid-esque” cruise setting in February 2015, they set out to make our special day a truly memorable one for families & friends, It was important for their guests to witness and feel the same magic of “true love & simple grace” that Manny & Makenna found in each other. After spending a whole 77 days planning her budget wedding, Makenna fell in love with the opportunity to create something from nothing. With her Great-aunt Ann’s 1964 [perfect-fit-no-alterations-needed] original lace dress as her inspiration, she set out to plan a day that would share the same simple, authentic beauty & grace with her guests. Little did Makenna know that her lifetime of frequenting flea markets, vintage and secondhand shops with Dad would be the key to building her “perfectly imperfect” handpicked boutique to share with other brides & hosts looking to welcome guests with open arms & timeless grace.

Makenna looks forward to joining you in your daydreaming and planning a perfectly graceful & memorable event. She is ready to throw some creative planning, hard work & a touch of magic at your next dream: big or small!
