The Team

Chelsea Van Arnam
Co-Owner // Wedding Planner

Hailing from sunny, Southern California, Chelsea has always had a knack for event planning and all things details. After graduating from UC Irvine with a degree in Studio Art and a minor in Business Management, she had the opportunity to merge creativity and love for organization into the world of magazine publishing. There she developed skills in social media marketing, brand development and events. Her expertise in pulling off an epic shindig lead her to six years with a top O.C. marketing agency with an emphasis on nonprofit and corporate events. From 800-person seated luncheons to VIP cocktail mixers, it is there she found her home making all the fine details come together and caring deeply for people and their best interests as though they were her own. A diehard romantic, she has been guiding brides in the Los Angeles area through the planning process for the past five years. She thrives off the ability to run your timeline flawlessly and help you celebrate your future forever with your favorite person by your side. Chelsea is a champagne popping pro and with frequent flyer miles stacked from trips to North Carolina, her home away from home.

Tatiana Czerwiak
Co-Owner // Wedding Planner

With a degree in Pre-Law from UC Irvine and a background in wedding planning and design, Tatiana will not only coordinate and style your day, but will run it with some crazy accurate precision. While working as a wedding coordinator and lead event planner in the Orange County area for the last six years, she’s been able to perfect a keen eye for details and an even keener desire to help her clients breathe easy and rest assured that every single detail has been taken care of. From the ‘yes’ to the ‘I do’s’, she gives in to her mile-a-minute brain and is an organizing powerhouse with a strong commitment to fulfilled deadlines and worry-free scheduling. You will find her taking names, setting the perfect table and always throwing in a joke (or two if it’s a good day) to make everyone around her feel welcomed and at ease. Not one detail goes unnoticed and she is bent on making your wedding day the purest reflection of the two of you as a couple as you step into your forever. Tatiana never goes anywhere without her three calendars and stack of post-its and is always game for a killer cheese plate and glass of wine.

Rocio Zapata
Associate Coordinator

With a passion for people and unparalleled creativity, we knew we wanted Rocio to be a part of the Lucky Day team from the very beginning. A So Cal girl with a heart of gold, Rocio brings her cheery, positive, go-getter attitude everywhere she goes. She has this innate power to accomplish any task with impeccable attention to detail and care for every person she encounters along the way. Her quirky personality and infectious smile make all of our couples and vendors feel at ease. When she’s not helping plan your happily ever after, you can find her rooting on her boys in blue (Go Dodgers!) or enjoying a cocktail (or two) in the heart of LA.
