Chic, Warm Events Your Guests Will Rave About
Our goal is to create a more enjoyable event experience for you than you ever thought possible. This means dramatically less stress for you with an expert guiding you to edited and stylish options while also value engineering your event design to ensure your investment is well spent.
We are not your standard event planner or florist.
Rock Paper Scissors Events is most similar to an interior designer for your event. Going far beyond centerpieces, we use all kinds of objects, props, lighting, rentals, and yes flowers, to create warm, inviting events. We come up with awesome ideas, hire and manage talented creative professionals, make decor in house, and then arrive on the day of the event to set it all up.
For those who like to know that they are in good company, we are proud to have created events for Rebecca Minkoff, Savannah Guthrie, Rachel Zoe, Essie, NBC, Google, Minted, Univision, Dove, Suave, Unilever, Dickies, Slate, Edelman PR, 360 PR, MML PR, IMRE PR, Hill + Knowlton PR, Arthur and Gabrielle Sulzberger, and the Food Network. We are especially pleased to have been selected by wedding industry experts Anja Winikka, Site Director of the Knot.com, Gabriella Risatti, owner of Gabriella New York Bridal Salon, and Courtney Jensen of Swiss Cottage Designs on their own weddings.
Buzzing along several years after starting the company in late 2009, our team and our offerings have expanded, but we remain a boutique company and only take on a limited number of events to ensure a high-touch service and very happy clients. Experts in short engagements and quick event lead times, we can calmly organize a last minute without sacrificing good design. We have offices in San Diego and New York City to directly service Southern California and the Tri-state area, and are happy to travel. Our bicoastal office set-up makes us the perfect choice for events with the client or couple on one coast and the event on the other.
We strongly support marriage equality and the right of all couples to marry.
