"LUIS THE BEAST! Growing up, I have always been influenced by music. Not knowing where to go with drums or guitar or being in a band, Dj'ing found me. I have appreciation for all types of music, genres, and feels. I love my hot wife, my cool little dog johnny cash, and Living a Vegan Lifestyle. I love hard, I party hard. Im always down for a good time, lets get weird."  - Luis

Meet Sam! An adventure junkie and outdoor enthusiast who loves being in the memory making business, who shares a love for love. She is a recent graduate from San Diego State University’s hospitality program with an emphasis in sustainability, and an associates in social and behavioral sciences. This girl loves anything outdoors; hiking, camping, rock climbing, bungee jumping, skydiving, you name it. While studying abroad, she caught a bit of a travel bug. She lived in England, and traveled all over Europe, only extending her curiosity for what else the world has to offer. Don’t let this ‘hopeless romantic' fool you, if she had it her way, it would be ROSè ALL DAY, which goes hand and hand with her motto, all black everything, with a little sparkle. She has found a niche in this industry that allows her love for flowers and a good party to be fulfilled. “What’s the point of life unless we are celebrating all its joyous occasions?!”

Introducing Marissa! Mar, Missa is her name, Fun, Excitement & Weddings is her game! She has been with Urban Shindigs since February 2014. To this day, her heart still melts and she still gets all sorts of feels when she watches a bride walk down the aisle. But enough with the practice, time for the real thing! Marissa has been with her fiancé since 2004, and is planning her own wedding for winter of 2017. She loves every minute of the planning process, especially all the crafting. “If you ever need a crafting buddy, hit me up.” Marissa is by no means a ‘home body.’ She would rather be at Disneyland, or the beach, or traveling across the globe, than sitting at home. But don’t let this Disney lover fool you, she is a fierce Muay Thai trainee!
