Natalie A. Bustos

Co-Owner/Principal Planner

Natalie began working in the event industry over 8 years ago doing hair & makeup and managing a photography business. She loved building relationships with the clients but would see a need for coordinators at their events. She often stepped into that role without hesitation and the rest is history! "I absolutely LOVE our Brava clients...I still get chills every time they walk down the aisle or see their setup for the first time! It is such an incredible feeling at the end of the event when we look back and say WOW...we did that. We just gave them the event of their dreams!"

Fun Facts: She has a knack for everything with photos/social media!  She also loves online shopping and believes coffee and makeup make everything better.

Before Courtney broke out into weddings and events, she was in the bar business and successfully managed multiple operations. Her passion for planning her friend's weddings(and her own) led her to want to do the same for others. With a leap of faith, she moved into the wedding industry over 5 years ago and never looked back! Her personality is contagious and our brides love them some Courtney!! " “I LOVE our clients. As a former bride, I know my expectations for what my wedding looked and felt like was SOOO important. I want our couples to know that they are our priority and they receive their services with the utmost professionalism. We will pull out all the stops for them no matter what!”
