We had the good fortune of connecting with Rachel Weinshanker and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Rachel, let’s start with a hypothetical. What advice would you give to someone facing insurmountable odds?
I’ve always believed that if you want something bad enough- if you’re really, truly determined to make it happen, you can and you will. You are capable of so much more than you think, I promise. Insurmountable odds or not, DON’T GIVE UP!

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
When I started San Diego Life Events, I never imagined that we would grow so quickly. What most obviously set me apart from other Wedding Planners almost instantly was of course my bright red hair and my big bubbly personality! I love to make people smile, and delivering results is just a bonus! What then REALLY set us apart was my knowledge and experience with venues and service providers throughout San Diego county. It was also SO so important for me to offer Wedding and Event planning services that can be customized, made affordable for ALL budgets and ideas. Above all else, I wanted my clients to feel like a friend, or even family
