hey there!

take me back

Hey! My name is Trisha and I'm the owner of Vanilla & Gold. I've dreamed of creating memorable weddings since I was 14 years old, and after marrying my high school sweetheart, Nic, I finally decided to make it official and started Vanilla & Gold.

When I'm not designing events, I am probably drinking iced coffee (no matter what the season) and planning our next adventure. I have a sarcastic sense of humor and have probably seen every TV series ever made.

I'm obsessed with details and organization, but also think it's important not to take life too seriously. My favorite part about designing weddings is always the love stories. Blending two different styles and creating someone's dream day makes me so incredibly happy. I can't wait to meet you!

my story

let's go back

At our core, we believe events should be F U N. That's the whole point right? Gather all your favorite people and enjoy a night together? We want every aspect of planning, designing and execution of your event to be enjoyable. We aim to make every piece of you day purposeful and create little moments of joy all day long. FOREVER SOUNDS LIKE FUN!

"There are SO many reasons I loved working with Vanilla & Gold. From our first meeting I could tell we struck gold by finding them. It was evident they truly cared about getting to know us as a couple along with our style and dreams for our special day. They made the entire wedding planning process so easy and fun. The amount of stress that was taken off our shoulders was immeasurable."
-Alyssa, Bride

I loved that Trish was so flexible and willing to make all my wedding decor dreams come true! I liked that we were able to meet at her office and I could see what she has available for table decor as well as extras for around the ceremony/reception site. I also loved that they set everything up for me and took it down so I didn’t have to worry about it!

- Tessa, Bride

"I enjoyed most not having to worry about setting up or taking down the weekend of my wedding. This saved me from so much stress! The girls at Vanilla & Gold know what they are doing! They make everything so easy and fun! I would have never known where to start the planning and decorating process!

- Taylor, Bride
