Founder & Creative Director
Born and raised in the eclectic and artsy seaside community of Santa Cruz, California, Crystal has always been surrounded by stunning beauty. Growing up in a family of artists, Crystal’s creative expressions were strongly encouraged even from a young age. With her relocation to the Big Island of Hawai‘i, Crystal’s appreciation for beautiful scenery, design, and imaginative ideas all culminate in putting together exquisite events and weddings for her clients. Having studied Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing at California State University Long Beach, and fueled by her love of bringing people together, she decided to pursue a career in event management.
Crystal thrives in coordinating all of the moving parts of managing events and adores designing a wedding true to her couples’ love story.
Her previous experience of coordinating weddings and events for the Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay for almost two years helped her cultivate the necessary relationships with the Big Island’s most prestigious artists (vendors) in the wedding industry. In 2016, Crystal founded Isle Love Weddings and Events.
As a quick, creative, and innovative thinker, coupled with unrivaled instincts and problem-solving skills, Crystal is prepared to help each couple’s personality and love story shine through at their wedding. Her attention to detail throughout the planning phase ensures that nothing goes unnoticed or forgotten. Recognizing that each wedding is an intricate and delicate puzzle, her affinity towards logistics and her eye for detail promises each couple an effortless, unforgettable big day.
When she’s not working on vendor lists, timelines or vision boards, Crystal can be found exploring all of the amazing adventures the Big Island has to offer. Crystal’s favorite activities and stress relievers include hiking, cooking, baking, and relaxing at the beach. She finds inspiration in nature and different cultures, and her world travels have helped her refine and enhance her design aesthetic.
Crystal firmly believes that each couple is unique, each love story is beautiful, and she will work diligently to ensure that each couple has an exceptional event to celebrate the love of a lifetime.
