Samantha Rosenberg, Event Consultant
Event Consultant Samantha Rosenberg moved here from Texas a little under three years ago. She is a certified wedding consultant through Lovegevity’s Wedding Planning Institute and has a background in event planning from her previous experience as an Assistant Wedding Coordinator in Texas. Her passion for people, weddings, and true “southern hospitality” makes every day an adventure as she works to make her clients’ ideas come to life. Incorporating details suited to the couple is her favorite part of the planning process, as they add an element of personalization to each event.
Samantha enjoys exploring California with her husband, working in the garden, sewing, and spending time with her amazing friends and family. She is extremely involved with her church and enjoys serving there in her spare time. She absolutely loves coffee, anything sweet, and taking naps with her Yorkie, Barkley.
Lauren Mireles, Event Consultant
I was born and raised in Sacramento, California. I didn’t know right away that being an Event Planner was something that I was going to do. It all started when I was working as a Customer Service Representative, and my boss would have me plan the work events for our office. Then when my sister got engaged, I was Maid of Honor, and helped plan the Bridal Shower and parties that go along with being a MOH. I started to realize that this is what I truly wanted to do. I felt that my extraordinary customer service skills and desire to let someone know that they can fully count on me, was the best feeling in the world. I am beyond thrilled be a part of Team KME. As the saying goes, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” This is a saying I now understand.
I love to spend time with my niece, Lilly, and I am lucky enough to be her nanny. I enjoy baking and watching football with my friends and family, Go Niners! My favorite thing to do, is to relax with a nice glass of Vino.
