Jaime Kostechko // Owner & Creative Director

Jaime has her Bachelors from UCSB in Sociology, forging her path handling events and décor within the hospitality and wedding industries Since 2008. She has her mother's style with her father's business sense. 

Inspired by Anthropologie, Justina Blakeney, bohemian chic and urban punk…. Tattooed yet reserved. Torn between Vans and heels. Equally loves a good wedding band and a great DJ...or a vinyl record player and an old school cassette tape. 

In her spare time, Jaime is a fire captain’s wife, dinosaur wrangler, part-time superhero, surf/skateboard coach and boo-boo kisser (aka mom to two boys, Milo & Knox).

In addition to weddings and events, jaime designs for editorials, workshops, conferences and brand campaigns.  

Wild Heart Events was voted Santa Barbara's BEST WEDDING PLANNER in 2016 and 2017!
