Zohe Felici from Felici Events:
Zohe Felici’s Italian blood flows through everything she does and her event-planning company is no exception. “I started the company, Italian-born, Italian-raised, born to entertain. That’s the nature of being Italian,” she says. I only seemed fitting to name the company after her Italian surname: Felici “we are happy” Events. With a background in five star five diamond luxury hotel and hospitality industry, Zohe Felici offers clients her extensive knowledge, impeccable taste, and unprecedented attention to detail. “There’s nothing I enjoy more than exceeding my clients’ expectations,” Felici explains. “To me, that is success.” And indeed her thorough preparation, communication skills, and organizational talent ensure that each aspect of every event—the location, décor, timing, menu, and ambiance—is indisputably perfect.
In 2001 she found her way to the California coast as a catering manager for Bacara Resort & Spa. It was here she realized she loved the special events industry, and more so the community of Santa Barbara. Knowing she would be living here for life, she moved into a position at an event planning company, and four years later knew it was time to master her craft in her own business.
Here’s some of the Highlights:
How did Zohe become an event planner? – Born Italian
What is Zohe’s favorite thing about events? – the relationships we create and foster, practice.
What sets Felici Events apart? Four Seasons background, white glove service, eye for detail, knowing how to read a crowd, understanding my client, intuition, experience, discriminating in team building.
What is in store for 2014? – Want to increase our DMC and destination wedding planning nationally and abroad and connect with clients.
About Felici Events:
Felici Events mostly serves as a base for event planning and out sources the details to other companies. “I get the caterer. I’m behind the design, the decor, musicians, that sort of thing.” she said.
It is Felici’s international experience that affords her the creative resources to take events to the next level. A citizen of the world, Felici has lived in seven countries and fluently speaks five languages . Her inspired global perspective and profound appreciation of diverse cultures lends exquisite color and texture to the celebrations she designs.
Felici Events is active in working with nonprofits, including Girls Inc. in Santa Barbara, the Breast Cancer Resource Center, the Jewish Federation of Santa Barbara, and The Santa Barbara Trust of Historic Preservation to name a few. Felici Events was behind developer Michael Towbes 80th birthday celebration, which benefited the Granada Theatre Capital Campaign. “We created a dinner theater experience for almost 700 people at the Fess Parker Doubletree Resort,” she said. The experience included seven acts and performances.
The Felici Events team consists of an assistant, and a 4-6 person internship she successfully runs, mentoring sharp ladies in the area, from high school, City College and UCSB.
