Great events transcend the ordinary and offer us the extraordinary. From inspired weddings to unforgettable corporate gatherings, destination events and magical parties, event designer Alicia Falango has been creating one-of-a-kind experiences for years. Intimately involved in every aspect of event design, coordination and execution, Alicia and the Alicia K Designs team work side-by-side with clients to ensure that each event embodies the distinctive vision, charm and personality of its hosts.
The daughter of a floral arranger and caterer, Alicia inherited her mother's passion for crafting idyllic functions. Following this early inspiration, Alicia honed her craft, helping to plan and coordinate nearly two hundred private and corporate events. In addition, Alicia completed a 2 day apprenticeship with Sasha Souza Events. She combined these experiences with the insight gained from her extensive travels to such diverse locations as Europe, the South Pacific, Southeast Asia and the Middle East to found her own event planning and design company in 2001.
Known for its sophisticated, yet youthful style, stunning floral arrangements and intimate, contemporary settings, Alicia K Designs is widely recognized as one of the San Francisco Bay Area's most engaging and original event design companies. In addition, Alicia K Designs maintains an office in Miami offering its services throughout the South Florida region. A respected member of the Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC), Alicia strives to make planning an event a rich and rewarding experience for everyone involved. Treating her clients as friends and partners in the creative process, she works with customers, drawing on the little things-a song, a place, a memory-for inspiration. Her goal is simple, to create perfect, personal and timeless events that are an authentic reflection of her clients.
Whether organizing a sumptuous gathering, a New Year's Eve gala, or a an exotic destination wedding, Alicia's warmth, playful creativity and meticulous organizational skills deliver once-in-a-lifetime affairs that linger in memory. As a result, Alicia's events have been featured in such publications as The Knot, Elegant Bride and Savor Wine Country.
