For over 22 years, Los Willows has been my passion. I like to think that we are in the “happy” business making dreams come true at each and every celebration. If there are compliments that we hear over and over again, they are, “This place is magical” My family and I can’t take all the credit since our natural surroundings and pristine spring-fed lake is definitely the cornerstone to this magnificent place. What I can say is we at Los Willows host only one celebration at a time so the entire focus is on you and your special moment, where memories last forever. We invite you to visit Los Willows and experience the “magic” for yourselves. You will not be disappointed!

Lynne Martucci

Director of Operations

I wear many hats because that is how it is in this special industry. I have been working in Food & Beverage Service for over thirty years and with that experience I truly know food, from preparation to presentation and I know just about everything you need to know about hosting a successful bar. I will be the person you see when it’s time to have your menu tasting. You will also see me involved with our banquet staff ensuring everything goes according to plan.

Kelly Suan

Social Media & Marketing Director

I am often referred to as the Jack-of-all-trades of our awesome team. After receiving my BFA from Otis College of Art and Design, I returned to San Diego to explore my many different passions; ranging all the way from product photography and wedding coordination, to opening a small business specializing in brand management. When I found Paradise Falls and Los Willows, I was inspired. I was introduced to an incredibly talented group of loving, creative, and dedicated individuals, who are the foundation of a brand that sets the bar for impeccable elegance and the highest standards in service. I am able to explore so many different creative avenues through my work in social media and marketing, always with the goal of introducing our brides and grooms to the same incredible brand that I fell in love with.

Allyson Clark

Coordination Manager

I received my degree in Hospitality Management with a Concentration in Wedding & Event Planning from Johnson & Wales University, and that combined with my experience of having planned over two hundred weddings, I know you are in great hands with me and my team. I have a deep passion for all things elegant, sophisticated and filled with love. The success of your wedding is in the details! And, that is where I come in. I work closely with the Wedding Planner to make sure your big day is stress-free and everything you imagined. From the colors of your napkins to the fluffing of your dress as you walk down the aisle I am here to make your wedding as flawless as possible. I am here to make your dream day come to life and create a one-of-a-kind event that you and your guests will remember for a lifetime.

You may run into these two on non-wedding days. Brandy’s favorite thing to do is retrieve sticks or in some cases, branches. Buffy prefers to meet and greet and hang out with whoever has a treat.
