The foundation of Francine Ribeau Events is Francine’s neo-traditional style of wedding planning. Weddings tend to be very traditional in terms of style, formality and attitude. Francine believes that today’s couples are questioning why these traditions are so important and what it means for them. She finds that most brides and grooms she works with have decided to challenge the norm and wish to create a wedding that is an authentic representation of their own personal style. By weaving a thoughtful blend of beloved tradition and inventive individuality and by combining time-honored customs with expressive creativity, new traditions for the modern couple are formed. This new adaptation of traditional wedding planning creates a memorable event that honors, not only the past and future of the couple, but one that is true to who they are in the present.
Francine Ribeau began in the San Diego wedding industry as a banquet server in 1998. After a combined 9 years in the food and beverage industry, graphic design, marketing and public relations, she founded Francine Ribeau Events in 2007.
