Originally from San Diego, California, Vivian found herself moving here to Colorado in 2006 to attend college at CU Boulder where she studied environmental science with a minor in geography. She found herself back here in 2013 after travelling and living across the globe in exotic locations like New Zealand, Thailand, and Vietnam. We were lucky to have her join our team here at The Pines in the summer of 2014 as an Onsite Event Coordinator. Her specialty is working with each bride and tailoring their wedding day to be exactly what they have always envisioned. As a true Colorado girl at heart, in her free time she enjoys skiing, travelling and of course,

eating wedding cake!
