Ryan Larson, the founder of Savoir Flair Wedding Coordinating in Los Angeles, plans everything from intimate destination weddings to dazzling receptions all over Southern California. Her weddings have been featured in Modern Bride, Inside Weddings, Elegant Bride, and The Knot Wedding Pages, countless wedding blogs as well as a celebrity tabloid that shall remain nameless!
For Ryan, no two weddings could ever be alike because the design is inspired by the couple themselves. Ryan meets with the couple to really get to know them before she can even think about design. She feels there is nothing worse than a “canned wedding.” Ryan believes the key to a truly memorable wedding celebration lies in making it personal and unique. She has a reputation for dreaming up distinctive, one of a kind weddings that speak to the couple’s style and personality.
"Its a right of passage, and to me, is a privilege to
witness," says Ryan of her self proclaimed "dream job."
Ryan received her Bachelor's Degree in History but wanted to foster her creative side. Wedding Coordinating lets her merge traditions of the past with innovative and exciting trends of today.
“I get to be there for the best day of their lives, the day they record in albums and journals and stories for years to come. It’s a touching and fulfilling experience."
