When Scott Topper first asked me if I wanted to co-produce and coordinate for his Party Time with Scott Topper show for 2016, I was honored. He told me straight up that the show was like “community theater” and when he said that, he had my heart and attention. Having a background in musical theater and also loving to support community, I knew the spirit in which the show would be produced and couldn’t wait. Shows like this are all heart. With an audience that reaches approximately three times the amount the Santa Barbara Bowl holds, as well as 5 million homes being able to watch the show on ROKU, this was a great opportunity to showcase some real collaborative talent and have fun.
The first order of business for me was to come up with something fresh for his show for the new year, something that had not been done yet. The sets in the past were gorgeous, and each year only got more beautiful. They were a lovely backdrop for guests to come, sit and be interviewed about their job. And while this is the basis for the show, I wanted the way they were presented to be different.

I have been working with Ventura Rental Party Center Owner Heidi Whitcomb for over 17 years. She is unwaveringly one of the most remarkable women I’ve ever known in my life.

I met Ashley through her beautiful family , who are also event industry colleagues (and now, quite honestly, family) of mine. She always said she wanted me to be her wedding coordinator if she ever got married and even when she got engaged, I told her that I did not want her to feel obligated in case she would rather work with someone else. To my delight, she was still insistent that I work with her in helping her orchestrate the day of her wedding and I was so honored. And so, the journey of being brought into the folds of her and her fiancé, Chad’s, family even deeper began. And I wouldn’t have had it any other way. You see, Ashley is also one of my Lead Associates for my own business and helps make me shine with my clients, as well. She is also one of the most beautiful girls on earth, her radiance coming from her joy that always shines and touches everyone with whom she comes into contact. So it was only extra thrilling that I was given the opportunity to be of service to her, her (now) husband Chad and their beautiful families for a gorgeous wedding celebration in the mountains of Ojai.Read More >>
