Meet Aletha!


Aletha has always been a planner, from parties and vacations, to outings with friends or with children as a nanny. Aletha has a background in theatre, film, and childcare. In other words, lots of creativity and wrangling! Aletha lived in the San Francisco Bay Area, Colorado, Northern Nevada, and Las Vegas before settling in Los Angeles. Working as an Associate Planner with Burlap and Rose Weddings has given her the courage to follow her dreams and start her own wedding and event planning business, Romance and Revelry.

Recently, Romance and Revelry has also started dabbling in wedding florals with the help of our AMAZING team below. Aletha's goal is to create whimsical and fun weddings, baby showers and events that your guests won't stop gushing about and to ensure that your day runs as smooth as can be. She loves celebrations of all kinds and can't wait to help you realize your fabulous vision!

Meet the Team!
