The story of mira
MIRAwed, LLC. is a 10 year (and counting!) labor of love by yours truly—Miranda Meisenbach. I started this company in Los Gatos, California in 2008. I immediately sought industry education through the highly reputable Association of Certified Professional Wedding Consultants, where I now am proud to wear the title of “Professional Wedding Consultant” (or “PWC”). From there I took a job as a coordinator with a local venue in Campbell, where I gained invaluable first-hand experience to a wide variety of wedding and special events. During this time, I also coordinated weddings and events for friends as well as small businesses in a variety of locations around the Bay Area. In 2011 I accepted two board of director positions: one for the Silicon Valley chapter of the National Association for Catering & Events and one for the Association of Certified Professional Wedding Consultants National Board. I served on both boards for 3 years, working closely with some of the top event professionals in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The varied experiences I gained during those first 5 years help me build a company around doing what I enjoyed most—planning event experiences in unique and beautiful locations. What started as a Bay Area based business soon expanded to include Napa/Sonoma wine country, Carmel and the Central Coast, Lake Tahoe area… until finally in 2013 we rebranded ourselves as a California destination wedding planning company. In 2015, after experiencing overwhelming growth over the previous 2 years, I made a personal decision to move myself and my 2 children down to Cave Creek, Arizona to live closer to family and enjoy a slightly slower pace of life. After some soul searching, and with the support of my incredible vendor and client base in California, I decided to keep MIRAwed open and expand the company to cover destination locations in both states.
A new home in Arizona
Arizona boasts some of the most beautiful destinations I have ever seen, and that is a lot coming from a Northern California girl! With the rich tones of the desert, the jaw-dropping sunsets, and complementary seasonality to California, Arizona is a perfectly natural expansion to our service range. I am one lucky girl to be able to frequent so many places that make my heart happy and call it work!
