Introduction: With over 20 years in the hospitality industry we combine a passion for creating quality cocktails, helping you plan your wedding, providing knowledgeable waitstaff and outstanding customer service. As a mixologist most recently I was the mastermind behind a beautiful cocktail menu made from scratch ingredients. I love to provide a customized experience. Every event I’ve done is unique in its own way. That’s why you should have cocktails inspired by “you” utilizing the local fresh ingredients the Central Coast has to offer. We will work together to customize cocktail names to bring the whole event together to wow your friends and family. My wife Aubrey has been coordinating wedding’s for over 10 years. As a bride planning your wedding we want you to be a guest at your own wedding. We handle all the details from the day you decide to work with us until the last minute the day of your wedding. We are known as Mr. & Mrs. accountable. We show up early and stay late to everything we do. We understand some of the old school philosophies my grandfather taught me like work ethic, following through with what you say you’re going to do and just simply showing up on time. Let’s work together and elevate your next event to the next level. Additional products and services we offer: -Glassware rental pickup -Disposable glassware delivered to your event -Ice delivered to your event -Crystal clear craft cocktail ice -Event staff to help with setup, service & cleanup Discounts for booking multiple service! Many of our clients recognize the value in booking all of our services together. From wedding coordinator, waitstaff & bartending services we can cover it all for you.

There are not enough words of PRAISE for Brian Gardner. If not for him our entire event would have probably evaporated into a pool of my tears!! To say he saved the day is an understatement. Brian and Margaret provided EXCEPTIONAL “wait staff” – in professional attire. They looked wonderful. From preplanning to setup to cleanup, he was not only monitoring EVERY DETAIL in my event, he was also watching out for me! When I was busy making the rounds greeting my guests, Brian discreetly tapped me on the shoulder and told me to go eat something – what a nice man. THANK YOU, Brian! If you are in need of help with your event, look no more! You have found the best … experienced, knowledgeable, generous and kind - wrapped in professionalism. I highly recommend DARING TO DREAM EVENTS

Details: Special event / party • 101 - 150 guests • 2-4 • Clear / bus plates • Setup / cleanup

I don’t even know where to start! From our very first phone call Aubrey and I hit it off immediately. I knew right away she was the one we needed for our wedding to run smooth and so we could feel like guests rather than hosts. Brian was a rockstar too. I forgot a few things the day of and he ran here and there for us without wasting a single second and with a huge smile on his face. From helping plan, to contacting all vendors, to making a perfect timeline exactly how we wanted; we truly had the most incredible day and it wouldn’t have been as amazing without these two wonderful human beings.

Details: 101 - 150 guests • DJ • Caterer • Photographer • Videographer • Venue • Florist

We worked with Daring to Dream Events for bar service for a recent wedding and were absolutely blown away! Their staff was so friendly and professional, and did such an amazing job all night long. I don't think there was ever a line at the bar; they were fast! highly recommend and would definitely book them time and time again!

Brian and his sweet wife, Aubrey, bartended our wedding this past Saturday. I overlooked a small detail of bringing produce for the garnishes for our cocktails. BIG OOPS ON MY PART. Brian took care of this. I had zero clue about my mistake until my sister told me at 8 o’clock at night ! My husband and I could not be happier with the services provided by Daring to Dream Events. I had multiple guests complement me on the cocktails as well. You can’t beat having a knowledgeable, professional, and friendly bartender at your event. 11/10 recommend!! THANK YOU AGAIN BRIAN AND AUBREY
