About Tracey CostaSan Luis Obispo Wedding Planner

Hey there, I’m Tracey, owner, and founder of Heart Melting Events. I was born and raised in the Central Valley and moved to the Central Coast in 2006. After many years working in the hospitality industry, the passion of wedding and event planning I’d always dreamt of, finally sparked. I realized it was time to spread my wings, challenge my brain and give it a shot. I received my certification as a Certified Professional Wedding and Event Planner from Lovegevity Wedding Planning Institute in September of 2015 and started Heart Melting Events.

My favorite thing about wedding planning is getting to know the couple, learning their love story and creating a friendship that will last a lifetime. I feel it’s so essential for my clients to feel comfortable and 100% stress-free during the entire planning process to ensure they experience all the fantastic emotions as an engaged couple and on the most important day of their lives. I hope we can create and share this relationship with one another!

About julia freetLead Coordinator + Marketing Manager

Hi! My name is Julia & I am Heart Melting Event’s lead coordinator & marketing manager! I was raised in the Bay Area and came to the central coast to attend Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, where I spent four years studying Communication Studies and Psychology. During my junior year of college, I discovered my passion for event & wedding planning, and immediately began working towards my goal of entering the industry. I have been one of Tracey’s right-hand ladies since April 2018, right before I graduated college.

If I had to choose my favorite parts of any given wedding day, it would be the couple’s first dance, seeing the bride walk down the aisle, and the father-of-the-bride toast. (Basically all the moments where I’m guaranteed to shed a tear or two). Really I’m just a hopeless romantic who feels incredibly blessed to help make our clients’ dreams become reality.

Things I Love and Can't Live Without:

Lacey – my twin sister, my best friend, my #1 assistant, literally my other half!


My charming boyfriend, Blake!


My family and 2 fur babies!




Pizza & Ice Cream!


Country music!


Los Angeles Dodgers!

Now that you know a little about me, I'm excited to meet YOU and hear all about your love story.
