More about me
A native of Hawaii, Alissa was inspired at a young age by her vibrant surroundings. She grew up on both the West and East Coasts, allowing her to understand the differences in the art and culture. Alissa grew up in the agriculture world, which soon spawned her love of flowers and design. She began designing with flowers at the age of 13. From there, her love of details and parties blossomed when she began following Martha Stewart as a teenager.
After graduating with a Fine Arts degree, Alissa pursued event design at Boston’s top catering company. From there she worked in many arenas of the hospitality industry before relocating to Los Angeles.
For six years, Alissa was a Senior Event Planner and Designer for Celebrity Planner, David Tutera. She worked closely with David and his clients to come up with innovative design concepts and produced high-end celebrations. Alissa was also the lead planner and designer for David’s highly rated tv shows: My Fair Wedding, David Tutera Unveiled, and David Tutera’s CELEBrations.
Alissa currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two kids. She enjoys hiking, outdoor activities and keeping up with the latest design movements!
