About us

Pamela Ann Noxon, Producer

The Wedding Party Wedding Planning Show was created by Pamela Ann Noxon, Producer, Event Designer, Entrepreneur and ex- Officiant, out of a sheer love for weddings and respect for all brides' and grooms' individuality and range of styles.

After officiating over 500 custom multi-faith, multi-cultural, non religious weddings and partnership ceremonies in the San Diego area, Pamela set a new standard in wedding expos in the USA by creating the The Wedding Party Bridal Show. Since 2000 The Wedding Party has been San Diego's only upscale and fashion forward wedding planning fair and fashion show for all Southern California couples planning a wedding, re inventing the bridal fair with love, respect and style for all engaged couples.

Frequently interviewed on television, radio, in print and online, Pamela believes "A wedding is a stressful event to plan, it's more than just a party, it is a coming together of two lives, two families and often two different backgrounds and ways of living. I wanted to create a resource where brides and grooms could find all of the better wedding services, inspiration, styles and ideas they need to plan a San Diego wedding.

I believe in true love and that a wedding is a form of communication. A great wedding - in any range of budget- should, first and foremost, reflect and communicate the love that the bride and groom generate so that every guest can feel the power of that love. To be able to focus on this- the only thing that matters- you need really qualified professionals taking care of everything else!"

You need to find people who know what they're doing and that fit with your personality to bring your day to life.
