I’m Silvia Lucena: the creative director and lead planner behind Classy Detailed Events. I’m what you’d refer to as a native San Diegan and still live in beautiful San Diego, CA with my loving and supportive husband of 12 years and my beautiful, 21-year-old daughter who is on her way to becoming a registered nurse. I still can’t believe I’m a mom with a grown daughter; it seems like just yesterday I was rocking her to sleep!
For years, I’ve been designing and planning custom events. As a child, I’d plan and coordinate our neighborhood talent shows—recruiting kids, selecting music, helping them choreograph their dance moves, and even typing up programs to distribute to parents (Funny fact: These days, I seem to have two left feet and have “forgotten” how to dance).
Naturally, everyone around me recognized my creative talent, and I became the go-to person for planning my friends’ and family members’ weddings and joyous occasions. I consider it an honor to bring great happiness to others through the parties of life—whether those parties are birthdays, weddings, baby showers, anniversaries, or other celebrations.
I especially hold a soft spot for our U.S. military veterans (My husband is a USMC vet himself). I’m saddened by how often our servicemen and servicewomen are lost, lonely, without families, and often forgotten. Many have never even celebrated a birthday, which is another aspect of planning I’m starting to embark on.
I believe life is about celebrating special moments, creating and cherishing memories, and loving all people and making them feel special. I aim to be the cheerleader for my family, friends, clients, and strangers upon hearing their exciting announcements or accomplishments.
I love to follow up by busting out the bubbly and celebrating the moment. Even after all these years, I still get giddy with emotion reliving the amazing day I married my very own prince charming, sharing the occasion with a few close friends and family members while creating memories that are forever imprinted on my heart.
At Classy Detailed Events, we work together to design and plan a beautiful wedding that will have your friends and family swooning for years to come. Throughout the process, I transition from wedding planner to trusted friend.
It would be an honor to chat further about how I can help you create the wedding of your dreams. Let’s Connect!
