who we are

Janet Tacy brings a breadth of experience to her current position as owner/operator of Sandcastle Celebrations. For several years, Janet worked as a food server and banquent manager for large events. She has designed and built custom signage and ceremony backdrops. Her abilities extend to floral design and creating styled vignettes. Over the last three years, these experiences and an exceptional work ethic have helped Sandcastle Celebrations triple its business. 

"Every love story is unique...every wedding should reflect that story"

   --Janet Tacy, Owner/Operator


Sandcastle Celebrations is a sustainable event planning company. Sustainable events reuse and recycle as many materials as possible. Like a beautiful sandcastle at the beach our events leave no waste behind.


We also encourage our clients to hire local vendors. We have a preferred local vendor list that can accommodate different styles and budgets. These local vendors share a similar vision of sustainablity. Further, we encourage waste reduction by repurposing and reusing decorative elements.

"We LOVE Janet! We can't thank this woman enough for all of her hard work planning and coordinating our wedding at The Casitas Estate. We met Janet while we were touring the property (she is one of the preferred coordinators for Casitas) and immediately knew that we had to work with her. Janet's enthusiasm and passion for what she does is so incredible and it made the wedding planning process so much fun for us! Janet is also extremely organized and responsive. Since we don't live on the Central Coast, we could only make a handful of visits to town to visit with Janet, see the property, and meet with our other vendors. Janet helped coordinate all of these visits so we could meet with our vendors, and she even met with some of our vendors on her own - saving us trips! Talk about going above and beyond and making our lives so much easier. Janet also recommended other vendors for us to work with (catering, florist, DJ, etc.) and they all were perfect fits. We had a particular arch style in mind for our ceremony and Janet took it upon herself to assemble a team to actually build us the arch! Wow! With the styling, Janet totally embraced our vision, took it to the next level, and put together the most beautiful wedding we could have imagined. We were blown away on our wedding day by how perfect everything looked. The whole day ran so smoothly! Janet kept us at ease, stress-free, enjoying the day and each other. She really goes above and beyond to deliver your dream wedding and she is a blast to work with. Janet is much more than a wedding planner to us.  We feel like we gained a wonderful friend in the process. We would highly recommend her to anyone!"

"Janet is organized, fun, and was so understanding of our vision and ideas (and full of great suggestions). Our wedding day went so smooth and flawless.  I couldn't be happier with how she put everything together and her effort to make this the perfect day every bride dreams of! I highly suggest to anyone planning a wedding that they seriously consider hiring a coordinator, especially Janet! :) This was the best money spent for our wedding!!"
