ABOUT

KATIE RAY

As the owner of Atlas Design Studio, Katie has planned and designed hundreds of weddings and corporate events. Whether it is fashion, interiors or events, Katie has always had a passion for design and styling. After spending some time in New York, she came back to her roots in Santa Cruz and found her true passion designing weddings up and down the California coast!

Outside of the office, you can most often find Katie at the beach with her golden retriever and a glass of wine, or scheming a trip to Mexico to enjoy a fish taco and margarita.

Katie believes your event should be stress free and something to celebrate, and she will be there every step of the way to ensure a beautifully designed and well executed event.
