Lindsay Townsend, Owner / Lead Planner
After earning my degree from the University of Southern California, I spent several years working in the music business in Los Angeles, before moving to Lake Tahoe and transitioning into the wedding and event industry. Initially, I found myself working for a large corporation on the South Shore where I oversaw every wedding event over a period of five years. In that role, I gained an extensive amount of experience managing up to 100 events per year. In addition to the countless weddings I have planned over the last decade, I have also been involved in many other events including corporate functions, company retreats, family reunions, vow renewals, anniversaries and birthday parties.
In 2013, I founded Cloud Nine Event Company with the hope of focusing on quality rather than quantity, and with the desire to form genuine and long-lasting relationships with my clients. I strive to be the calming force on your wedding day and throughout the planning process, to handle the behind-the-scenes details with precision, to bring unique and creative ideas to your event, and to be your greatest advocate whenever possible.
I have served on the board of the South Lake Tahoe Wedding & Honeymoon Association and am an alum of Leadership Lake Tahoe. My reputation of reliability and hard work has made me a recognized and respected member of the Lake Tahoe Event Industry. My thorough knowledge of Lake Tahoe venues, and my solid relationships with the best local vendors will guarantee that you receive excellent service and fair prices.
Outside of work, I am a wife and a mother to our two adorable children and can often be found spending time with them in the outdoors and soaking in the beauty that Lake Tahoe has to offer. I am a world-traveler, a music fanatic, and a sucker for a good glass of wine. I am fortunate to do what I love and love what I do.
My dedication and passion for event planning, as well as my experiences and my relationships in Lake Tahoe, have given me the skills necessary to execute a beautiful event, no matter what size or style. And I can’t wait to start planning yours!
