Event Planner Los Angeles – Gianna and Company was established in 2003. We are a boutique event and wedding planning company with access to over 4,000 private estates and mansions and even a beautiful private yacht in the greater Los Angeles area.
Planning a wedding or special event can be time consuming and stressful. After planning events for over 20 years, I love what I do for a living…that is helping people achieve their dream event and or find their ideal location.
I grew-up in Fresno, California as an only child to Phyllis and Freddie Provenzano. My parents owned a beautiful floral business, which was established in 1914 in the financial district in downtown Fresno. My father purchased it from Angelo Joseph Rossi, who was a distant relative of my dad’s and the former mayor of San Francisco, California.
As a child, I loved to watch my mother assist brides with planning their weddings, as well as helping her clients design their parties and special events. My mother was beautiful and had great taste. I loved watching her interact with clients and her creativity and it had a great influence on me. Both my parents instilled the value of good customer service to me at a very early age. My parents employed a lot people over the years and I had the opportunity to meet a lot of very talented people growing up.
I moved to Orange County after college to work for Time Warner Cable, as an area telemarketing manager, then after a year, I was promoted to office manager to handle their accounts receivable, accounts payable and database cleanup in the South Pasadena and San Marino cable system.
After three years, I was offered a position at E! Entertainment, as assistant to the CFO, Bill Keenan, then less than two years later, I had an opportunity to work for Sony Pictures Entertainment’s GSN. Sony Pictures Entertainment had just launched Game Show Network. I started as a sales coordinator, but ended-up handling trade show projects for the marketing department. Since fledging networks can sometimes get high turnover and have long work hours, I ended up producing a live game show in Los Angeles at the National Cable TV show after one year. A couple of years later, I was promoted to Director of Special Events and Trade Shows. I ended up working for SPE, GSN for seven years and meeting some of the greatest game show hosts in TV history.
Having worked in the corporate world my entire career, I decided that I wanted to own my own company and started Gianna and Company in 2003. It is important to me to stay current on what is trending in design, fashion, decor, entertainment, and cuisine. Our company works with a multitude of talented event professionals, who can create anything, at any time, from start to finish. We value traditions, the latest technologies and the importance of staying calm and maintaining focus when stress levels are high.
