Who We Are
Established in 2014, Bravo Weddings is made up of three planners: Lisa Bravo, Katrina Reed & Katy Lohse. We also have a team of fabulous assistants that join us on wedding days. Read below, to find out a little more about each of us, and then get in touch, so we can find out more about you, and the wedding of your dreams!
Lisa has been married to her husband, Nick for 10yrs. They have 3 children: Bella (9), Nicholas (7), and James (3)... they also have a dog named Duke, and a cat named Sgt. Whiskers.
After getting into wedding planning while living in Sonoma, they relocated back to the East Bay, to be closer to family, and currently live in Walnut Creek. Lisa is happy to work all over the Bay Area, but most of her weddings are still in the Napa/Sonoma area. She is a Certified Wedding Planner, and also has experience working in catering, and at a winery / event venue. Lisa's style is organized, but easy going.
2019 is Lisa's 9th year of wedding planning, and she still feels so lucky to have found this career. Lisa handles the business side of the company, as well as a number of wonderful weddings each year. In her free time, she enjoys going to small concerts, playing on an adult softball team, and volunteering at her kids' school.
Katrina was born and raised in the beautiful Wine Country, and currently lives with her husband, Dale, in Petaluma. In January 2019, they had a destination wedding in Maui! Katrina also owns and operates a salon in Penngrove, with her sister.
Katrina has been a part of Bravo Weddings since it opened. Prior to that, she assisted Lisa at many events, and has enjoyed getting to know a wide variety of vendors -- and now can help her clients find the perfect match. Katrina has great style, and loves to see the new trends each season, as well as the little details that couples select to make the day their own.
When Katrina has free time, she loves hanging out with friends, attending a good country concert and traveling.
Katy had worked with Lisa since the beginning… starting out as an intern, then an assistant, and now as a planner. With a total of 8 years experience under her belt, Katy sure has seen it all! She is also a dance teacher, and helps children who have autism. Although none of the jobs are the same, she enjoys the differences and challenges that each brings. Katy is detail oriented and gets rave reviews from clients and vendors.
If Katy isn’t at work, you can find her hanging out with friends and family. She grew up in Petaluma, and lives close to downtown, so if you are planning a wedding in Sonoma County, Katy knows all the local spots!
