Alegria Sita, CEO
Making Dreams Come True
I love events! Weddings, parties, conferences, festivals.. you name it... I love working behind the scenes to ensure a well-organized, fantabulous time! I've been planning events since I was 13 years old. In January 2011, I decided to make a career out of my passion for parties, enrolling in a Wedding & Event Planning Certification Course through Lovegevity Wedding Planning Institute. I completed my coursework with honors, and Gala Events & Weddings was born!
As a non-denominational Officiant I have been marrying couples since 2008. I am passionate about working with couples to create heart-felt, meaningful ceremonies that authentically embody couples' personalities and are true to each couples' values. I know I've succeeded when couples and their guests leave the ceremony wowed by how "them" it was!
I've lived in Humboldt County, behind the redwood curtain, for nearly 30 years. I graduated from Humboldt State University with a BA in 2004, and decided to make Humboldt my home. I've worked for local schools, government, private, and non-profit sectors organizing events such as conferences, professional development trainings, retreats, multi-agency community service days, parties and festivals. From 2015 - 2018, I served as a Board Member for the Eureka-Humboldt Convention and Visitor's Bureau. In 2019, I joined the Board for the Sequoia Park Zoo Foundation where I continue to serve.
When I'm not planning events or officiating ceremonies, I enjoy dancing, adventures in the outdoors (particularly on our beaches and in our redwood forests), and traveling the world, balancing all of these hobbies with being an awesome momprenuer!
