Behind The Magic
We are Yanet & Candelaria Manzano owners and designers at Studio Heart Events. We are a creative detail-oriented mother/daughter team that designs, plans and produces exclusive events. Our introduction to events was an unusual one. Twenty years ago we suffered a devastating house fire where we lost everything. We got a lot of help from The Red Cross to recover, so as a way to pay back and help other families in need we decided to put together a fundraising event that included Art, performances, and food. The event was a great success, and we both enjoy the process of planning it, but in spite of great feedback, the idea of going into event planning never entered our minds at that point.
About a years later, our family again affected by disaster when a flood left us in the streets with nothing, but the clothing in our backs. After going through the same process, we decided to come back stronger and this time plan a more significant fundraising event by adding a fashion show and music concert. Suffice it to say we didn't need the third disaster to convince us we had found our path. So for the next couple of years, we set about getting to know the event industry from the ground up by learning about every area and its intricacies. In 2004 we established Studio Heart and dedicated our creativity and passion for the happy moments in life to make sure every milestone celebration is as unique and positively impactful as we can.
We give our full attention to every project, so we only accept a limited number of projects to ensure we have the time to create a unique and stress-free experience with every event.
These two women, mother and daughter are the most creative and talented people in the wedding event and design industry. It is just amazing how they can take your story and have your vision for your special day come to life.
Germaine & Lamar
They weren't just there to do a business and move on, but were there to get to know my husband and I as people, our visualization for what we dreamed off and put love into their work.
Rebeca & Adam
We were so grateful for their expert orchestration of our wedding planning and wedding day. Some of our favorite adjectives people have used to describe our wedding have included “perfect”, “elegant” “different”, “beautiful”.
