Fabiola was born in Mexico City and came to United States when she was 15 years old where she made California her home. Fast forward eighteen years and you will find this young teen now a beautiful young woman, mother of three boys and planning her own wedding to the love of her life (imagine what that wedding will look like). Fabiola started her career as a catering server working events like corporate meetings, picnics and birthday parties but her most favorite event is the wedding.

Fabiola loves the planning stage, she enjoys working with couples to make sure that they have the wedding they envision, she is a bit of a perfectionist so you can count on every detail to be exactly what it is supposed to be.
