Lauren Gonzalez and the Carole Baskin who Ruined 2020

Lauren Gonzalez has done just about everything in her time in the wedding biz. I (Mike) met her at Ponte where she started out as a wedding coordinator. I really got to know her at Temecula Creek Inn and then got to work with her at Michelle Garibay Events where she is a coordinator. Sitting down with her was fun and I hope you enjoy it.

Domenica Prestininzi and the Host Wearing the Clothes They Slept In

Today I sit down with Domenica Prestininzi of Domenica Beauty. This episode is a lesson in when a dude tries to see if he can chat with a make up artist friend for 45 minutes with no prep and make it interesting. I chose this as the third episode because I wanted to have a two episodes where I could say see I know what I am doing before the one that could grind it to a screeching halt.

Come along as Domenica and I discuss, what constitutes pajamas, whether guys should get make up and if everyone really knows her dad.
