Meet the Team
Hi there! I'm Gabby and I'm the founder and leader planner at 'Cause We Can Events. I started this company in 2012 in the hopes of producing events for causes (see where the name came from?). I worked for a few non profits, planned some yoga festivals and wonderful dinner galas but I kept feeling myself being pulled more toward weddings. I loved the idea of being in nature and celebrating love under the stars. This is where I starting specializing in adventurous, outdoor, destination-style weddings for couples who love to travel, wander and get inspired by nature. But don't worry, we still get involved with non profits as much as we can being donating 10% of proceeds or our time after every event.
I was born and raised in beautiful Montreal, Canada, and was surrounded by nature's beauty early on. Wanting to discover the West Coast, I moved to Manhattan Beach in 2010 and founded 'Cause We Can Events shortly after. Most recently, my fiancé, Chris and I decided to skip the house-buying step in life and opted to get a boat instead. We're living on a 42 ft Trawler in San Pedro and we're absolutely loving it! So don't be shy, reach out, say hi and let's grab coffee or go on a hike and plan your adventurous wedding together!
Hi! I'm Mayra. I have been working with Gabby since 2015 and I absolutely love being part of this team. I have to say that destination weddings are my absolute favorite. From sandy deserts to calming blue skies the places we visit are just begging to be explored. There is nothing better than planning a wedding in the great outdoors and enjoying the wonderful views that nature has to offer. Hopefully the photo galleries will give you a better feeling of what 'Cause We Can Events is all about.
I was born and raised in Colorado and, just like Gabby, I love nature and the outdoors. I am not a fan of cold weather which is why I decided to move to California, even though I do miss all of the natural beauty that Colorado has to offer. I love traveling and I am the ultimate dog lover. Even though I had to leave my dog back in Colorado, I get my "dog fix" by borrowing my old roommates dog. She's a tiny Boston Terrier named Minnie with such a silly personality, her tiny presence always puts a smile on my face!
