It all starts with the desire to plan and design a celebration that’s truly an experience. Hospitality is the foundation of the Harutyunyan Events approach, going all the way back to Hovik Harutyunyan’s early years. Growing up in an Armenian household where amazing parties were a frequent occurrence, the notion of cultivating a welcoming environment and the art of entertaining still resonate with Hovik.
While his years at UC Berkeley led him to a degree in economics and studies in English literature and mathematics, what ultimately drove him was his involvement in the event industry. Throughout his college years, he worked as an event planner for various catering companies and a fine dining establishment, gaining a formal training in culinary operations and logistics along the way. Additional event planning positions followed before Hovik opened the doors to his own company.
“Our clients trust us to turn their life’s most important moments into spectacular celebrations so we take the utmost pride in our work. This trust is our motivation to always deliver on the highest level.”– Hovik Harutyunyan
Hovik is widely trusted and respected for his seamless planning methods and innovative designs. A certified wedding planner and etiquette specialist, he understands and honors the backstory of wedding traditions but knows how to bend them for today’s modern couples.
He is an enthusiastic supporter of the arts, including ballet, opera, film, and architecture—often finding inspiration for his events in those mediums.
