Hi, my name is Roxanne Larson; Having lived in Wisconsin all my life, I am very familiar with the beauty Wisconsin offers, and I love utilizing that beauty when planning and designing weddings. I come from a very large family and have planned and designed significant events all my adult life. These events included family, relatives, friends, and friends of friends, so having 100 plus people to entertain at any given event is not unheard of. However, the event closest to my heart is planning and designing weddings because of all the beauty, excitement, and emotions swirling around; simply spectacular.
Having entertained huge groups, I understand the amount of time and effort it takes. Trying to plan your own wedding is the same, both time-consuming and overwhelming; that is why I am here, to take the stress off your days so you can focus on yourself.
I am very creative, and my creativeness has transposed a mundane look of an event into a beautiful work of art.
My enthusiasm and energy to provide couples with a Full Experience in Wedding Planning, Design, and Décor or, Coordination and my commitment to establishing relationships are phenomenal. My creative design expertise and friendly, sociable personality had made me the perfect choice as Ambrosia’s Wedding Events Planner.
Accomplished in various software programs, I graduated Magna Cum Laude and Delta Mu Delta International honor society with degrees in marketing and business management.
When I’m not working, you can find me participating in 5k’s with friends in the summer months or taking care of my vegetable garden. I also enjoy doing volunteer work and have done so for many foundations, such as Children’s Outing Association (COA), Make a Wish, the Vince Lombardi Cancer Center, the Volunteer Center of Wisconsin, The Milwaukee Aids foundation, and more. Furthermore, I enjoy working in my community as a poll worker during elections going to nursing homes to bring the elderly their ballots so they can vote. When I’m relaxing at home, I enjoy reading bridal magazines and making home remedies with my oils and herbs.
Have questions? Please call me for a free consultation; I am always excited to participate in your journey as you embark on a new chapter in your life.
Hello, my name is Oscar Sanchez, founder, and owner of Ambrosia Events, with over ten years in planning and designing amazing events.
Being a business owner, I found myself fascinated with the endless concepts I could develop in designing unique events for corporate and social venues, and working with many outstanding vendors in the planning process made me highly proficient in managing very large budgets of 1.7 million.
When planning an event, I work closely with the venue to ensure my team, and I follow all the rules and regulations regardless of its size, I also have a great understanding of AV production and event technology.
Because I understand how valuable your time is to you, I can guarantee to give you my full attention when handling all your needs.
My Culinary Arts degree and working with many fine chefs give me the advantage of understanding the logistics of creating a menu that fits your event, as well as designing exquisite florals and centerpieces, unique sculptures made from ice and chocolate, and building props to create the ultimate event experience.
Call Ambrosia Events and ask for me, Oscar. My goal is to design and plan an event that brings people together to celebrate growth, and accomplishments and I am dedicated to you, our clients, to enjoy your event without stress and worry.
I am a Wisconsin native who grew up in the Fox Valley area. After high school, I moved to Milwaukee for college. While living and working on the east side, I attended the UW-Milwaukee, where I earned a Bachelor’s in Business Administration.
When I think about the Greater Milwaukee area, I stay here because it offers a variety of things to do. Like many, the summer months are my favorite time of the year to truly enjoy all this area has to offer. When the warm weather arrives you will find me attending local festivals, listening and dancing to live music, and spending time with friends at restaurants with patios. During the winter, I make time to travel to warm weather destinations such as Florida, Mexico, and Puerto Rico.
My professional life has been filled with great experiences which have allowed me to become a strong leader. Over the past 10+ years I have worked in corporate management roles focusing on human resources, employee development, and operations for customer service and inside sales teams. I find joy in helping others succeed and one of the main reasons I am passionate about leadership.
Early 2021, I met Oscar through a business organization, where we quickly developed an understanding of each other’s goals and realized working together would be beneficial. With that said, for the greater part of this year, I have been supporting Ambrosia Events with human resources related projects. I also support the business with wedding planning and coordination as needed. My goal is to help Oscar grow Ambrosia Events beyond what he has achieved. Oscar has worked hard to ensure Ambrosia has an excellent reputation. My goal is to help the company to be viewed by the community as a strong employer where employees seek to work, develop, and stay for many years.
Hi! My name is Olivia Smidel and I’ve always had a passion for event planning and design. My very first event was my Junior prom; I spent hours hand painting a cobblestone walkway to bring an enchanted forest to life within our high school gymnasium. To this day, I bring the same enthusiasm, drive, and creativity to every event I am a part of planning.
When it comes to rentals, I take a personal approach to ensure that not only is your experience stress free but above and beyond your expectations. Whether you know what you need or need a little direction, whether simple or extravagant, I am here to offer you tailored advice and bring your vision to life utilizing accessories from our enormous in-house collection of linens, lighting, chairs, backdrops and so much more.
My degree in Communication and Media Studies, background in event coordination, and extreme attention to detail are just a few of the assets I bring to the Ambrosia team.
When I am not working I spend my time creating! I enjoy anything that plugs into my creative side including painting, cooking delicious meals, and crocheting sweaters. On my off days, I love to relax with my two cats, Daisy and Dexter.
