Meet The Team
Owner + Event Producer
Crystal was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, and grew up in the Bay Area. She graduated from Santa Clara University with a bachelor’s degree in Management Information Systems. When she realized her love for planning events and passion for design, she took her business savvy and management skills to create Amazae Special Events in 2005. Amazáe’s top priority is to fulfill the clients’ desires.
Crystal makes this happen by understanding clients’ event vision, learning about their values and personality, and designing an event that is one-of-a-kind. “Seeing clients smile because we’ve turned their vision to reality is the best part of my job,” expressed Crystal. “I am thrilled when clients can’t stop talking about the event we created together.”
Crystal collaborates with her team and brings in top-notch event industry vendors to ensure that all events are flawless. When she is away from work, Crystal loves spending time with her two beautiful daughters and her husband, dances, and plans to visit all of the continents.

“I don't think I can say enough about Crystal and her team at Amazae Special Events. She is simply the best! From the moment my fiancé and I met her, we knew we wanted to work with her for our wedding.”
“Incredible company that catches EVERY detail from beginning to end and treats every detail with the utmost quality. I've never experienced such organization in my life. Not to mention Crystal is an absolute pleasure to work with. She knows how to ask the right questions and has such an eye for perfection! I would hire her for EVERY special event I have.”
"Crystal is the best thing that ever happened to my world. Not only is she amazing at design, decor, and over all vision, but she also pays attention to the details. She is so sweet and hilarious which makes it great to work with her. She entertained even my crazy ideas and helped to rein those in to make a cohesive look. Thank goodness she is also planning my best friends wedding next year or I would go through Crystal withdrawal. She made my day EPIC just like I wanted it to be!! "
