Owner Priscilla Nakane has been a professional event producer and coordinator for over 15 years. With an innate talent for adding beauty, elegance, glamour and creativity to almost any project she touched, Priscilla began designing events, family parties, and school productions at a very early age. In 1999 Priscilla became a professional event coordinator by trade. As the Economic Development Assistant for the City of San Juan Capistrano, Priscilla was responsible for coordinated high profile city-wide events important to both business and community members. With each event she produced, she brought a new style of on-trend elegance to what would normally be a minimally styled municipal/city event.
In 2003, Priscilla went on to work for The City of West Hollywood where she reached the pinnacle of achievement in coordinating special events for large scale, high profile city and celebrity events. She had finally met her niche in a city that thrived on and is known for its glitz and glamorous events. As the Special Event Coordinator for The City of West Hollywood, Priscilla was responsible for coordinating the largest city sponsored Halloween event in the entire country! The West Hollywood Annual Halloween Carnival, produced by Priscilla and her city staff events team, takes place on a 1 mile long strip along Santa Monica Blvd. and brings out over 500,000 attendees and visitors from all over the world! In her role as coordinator for this event she wore many hats as she coordinated celebrity guests, top billing bands, million dollar sponsors, staging, security, fire/safety, 150+ food vendors, and logistical planning and programming for this week long event. As the city's event coordinator, Priscilla also played a role in the production and coordination of various celebrity driven events such as The Elton John Oscar's After Party, Vanity Fair After Party, HBO Golden Globe's After Party, Us Weekly After Party, and many more.

After almost five years with the City of West Hollywood, Priscilla was ready to venture on her own as an event producer/coordinator and Dolce Vita Events was born. Founded in 2007 in Beverly Hills, Ca where Priscilla and her daughter resided at the time, Dolce Vita Events began coordinating various fashion, celebrity, and entertainment industry events. Client's called upon Priscilla and her team as she was/is known for her utmost professionalism, attention to detail, and her elegant and glamorous flair. Priscilla re-launched Dolce Vita Events in 2012 after a short two year hiatus while she focused on the public relations and marketing side of her career by starting Savvy Girl PR (a public relations and marketing firm) in her now hometown area of Orange County. Savvy Girl PR works hand in hand with many of the high profile and/or corporate events that are produced by her Dolce Vita Events company but offers extensive and full spectrum public relations and marketing/branding services as well.
Since focusing on the production, planning, and coordination of more weddings and corporate events, Priscilla still keeps active in event production and consulting within the entertainment industry. In 2015 she was selected to provide celebrity event planning services to the hit NBC prime time show "Best Time Ever! - with Neil Patrick Harris, where she was also featured as a celebrity planner during the television sketch comedy show with a twist. Priscilla was also one of the celebrity event planning host finalist for the David Tutera CELEBrations show third season and continues to plan and produce industry events for high profile clients.

The Wedding Planner
Love & Family
Priscilla believes in Family. It's #1 to her and the reason she became an entrepreneur, producing events that she loves most in order to have more time with her family. It only made sense that the intimate events she is most passionate about and happy to coordinate are weddings (or anything pertaining to weddings!).
Like many wedding event coordinators, Priscilla began coordinating weddings and styling brides long before she became a professional. Being from a large family with dozens of cousins, aunts, and extended family circles, there were always weddings where she was called upon to style either the bride, the bridesmaids, or the ceremony/reception. Fast forward (a certain amount of) years later and coupled the hands on knowledge gained in those early years with her years of qualified professional experience and Priscilla is a true talent when it comes to designing weddings with classic elegance and style, that delight and fulfill the client's needs while maintaining her desire to create within an affordable budget.
Priscilla works hard for her bridal clients to give them the wedding they've dreamed of. She listens, gets to know, and represents her Brides in a way that brings their visions to reality. Let her capture your vision and turn your wedding into an event and experience that exudes la Dolce Vita!
