About

Since beginning her career as an event planner + designer, Ciani’s passion for planning weddings had a unique start. After working in hospitality for over 10 years, she started producing conferences, concerts, galas, and dinner parties. A friend, being familiar with her line of work, asked that she plan their wedding. Their trust in her ability, despite it being her first time planning a wedding, was all the confidence she needed. She knew she would kill it. The wedding was a great success and that's when her love of wedding planning began.

As her clientele began to grow, she officially left her job in 2017 to give her business her full attention. She is currently pursuing her degree in Business Management at Pepperdine University.

Ciani is such a hard worker and proactive when it comes to wedding planning.

The reason I choose her over everyone else is that she took the time to look up Hindu traditions. After I had gotten off the phone with her, for our initial meeting, I received an email the next day about some traditions that I could incorporate into our wedding. She also, fought for us when it came down to negotiating with wedding vendors. Whenever we met with a vendor, she would be on time but also, stay after with us to go over some aspects of the wedding. During the wedding, there were a few hiccups but these were things that I didn't know about until after the wedding. She took care of things and made sure that neither myself nor anyone else knew what was going on. To say that she minimizes stress would be an understatement. She made sure that we were taken care of. And if we were running short on time, she would politely tell me so. She really does her job well. I would recommend anyone to her when it comes to wedding planning. She knows her stuff and makes sure that we are not overcharged. I would gladly use her services again.

We highly recommend Ciani and Champion Event Productions!!

We were very demanding clients and our expectations were continually exceeded. She is gifted and dedicated with an amazing work ethic and brilliantly creative and design eye. She helped us create and execute an amazing, beautiful, and unforgettable day. Ciani has a wealth of experience that made the process seamless, she was excellent at managing the venue and other contractors/suppliers, and she was readily available to answer our questions. She also had excellent communication and relayed information proactively; she took all of the normal worries out of the process because we knew that Ciani had it under control. On top of being a logistics and event management whiz, Ciani’s eye for design and gift at making things beautiful, even on a budget, is truly an asset to any couple. Trust me, she’ll exceed your expectations. We cannot thank Ciani enough for arranging a spectacular day for us. We cannot recommend her enough as our friends will attest. Thanks Ciani.

- David

We love Ciani so much we now consider her family.

She handled every situation surrounding our wedding with decisiveness, professionalism, and class. She was an advocate for our needs with various vendors. The mark of an excellent wedding planner/coordinator is that they shield you from the chaos unfolding around you. Ciani did this many times for us. I didn’t find out about mishaps until after the wedding leaving my husband and I free to just enjoy the most important day of our lives.

Favorite Event Memory: I was a director at a boutique hotel and our F&B outlets were all on the rooftop. We were known for over-the-top events and would transform our entire rooftop into themes for our yearly events. One year, we transformed it into a vintage circus and had fire dancers, animals, dart throwers, and anything you would find at a circus back in the early 1900s. It was so fun and it really felt like you were transported to a different era!

Favorite Event Memory: Attending a wedding at the Grand Tradition in Fallbrook when I was about 8 years old. That was my first introduction to a formal event and, at that age I was stunned. I was obsessed with every detail, flowers, and figuring out what an hors d'oeuvre was. I wanted to live in that moment forever. Many many years later I made a career out of paying attention to all those details.
