Established in 2008, Soigné Productions may be one of the newest event planning companies in Santa Barbara County, but owner Tonya Szele is not new to the event industry. Her professional experience over the past twelve years includes catering management, venue direction and event coordination. During her career, Tonya has planned more than 600 events: including weddings, corporate events, fundraisers, social gatherings and wine club parties.

Now that she has started her own full service event planning company, she will be able to put her expertise to good use in producing events of all styles and sizes in Santa Barbara, the Santa Ynez Valley and beyond. Tonya has established close relationships with the best vendors in the area to be able to help you gather the ideal team of professionals based on your vision. She is passionate about the events she helps to produce and her calm and professional demeanor helps her clients to enjoy the event planning process from start to finish.

One of Tonya’s most important productions was her own recent wedding! For details and photos on her special event, as well as others that she has planned, please visit her Portfolio.
