Welcome to our new site, but a not a new duo!!!
First a little about ourselves:
Hi , I am Ann Nord. I moved to Los Angeles with my best friend from the East Coast about 15 years ago. I now work as a Prop Master in the Entertainment Industry and own a Prop House/Construction House and Studio Company called Last Stop Props & Scenic Inc. with my Husband, Jp Gutierrez, who is a Production Designer. We have a beautiful daughter named Olivia. We live and breath creativity all day. I have coordinated and designed many weddings for friends and co workers and designed countless parties and charity events. So I decided to add to my plate another company-Last Stop Weddings- and join forces with AJ Fernandez Rich, who on his own is creative and knowledgeable on whats hot and not and the upcoming styles.
HI , I am AJ Fernandez Rich. I thrive on making your event the most memorable and stress free experience. Working with Ann inspires me to think outside of the box, and my inspiration for all I do and create comes from being a proud husband and Daddy to 5 year old Harper. My one and only goal is to make sure your dream event or wedding comes to life and giving you the confidence that you can rely on me to take care of all of the small details while you sit back and enjoy every moment! I am a stickler to the schedule/plan and am comfortable managing decisions that make sure everything happens just like you wanted it to---and I will also make sure you eat and drink at your own event too (trust me, THAT usually doesn't happen)! I've worked in the events and customer service industry for over thirteen years. As the director of one of Lake Tahoe's main wedding venues, I helped coordinate and oversee over 300 weddings a year! Now a Los Angeles local for five years, working with Last Stop Weddings and the vibrant brides and grooms is my passion.
So here we are , AJand I starting a wedding business! Hmmm...why would this be any different than the other 5 million companies and event planners out there? It isnt!!! We arent trying to one-up another company (don't get me wrong, that would be AWESOME!) For real, we aren't! Last Stop Weddings is a company that wants to bring couples or companies or the everyday persons crazy, unique, and individual event dreams to life. NO idea is crazy to us. Actually whats crazy to us is not living or carrying out your dreams or ideas.
What we at Last Stop Weddings want to show you is you don't need to have that perfect white wedding with the typical church or venue, the typical white dress, the same amount of bridesmaids to groomsman---for that matter have any groomsmen or bridesmaids---and that our expertise can help you create YOUR event. We are a full service Wedding/Event Company and while our unique Prop House Venue in Burbank provides that "Hollywood Wedding" that caters to the DIY/Off-Beat Brides, Grooms, or Event Hosts, we can help with any aspect of your event at any venue throughout Southern California. Contact us to inquire about any and every detail you'd like to plan yourself, but have us manage or bring to life for you. It's all about what fits you and your style.
So why are these two so "out-there!?!" We really aren't. If you're wondering how we can turn a prop house into a wedding venue (Can you even picture that? Who gets married at a Prop House?) please check our gallery section for pictures. Email us anytime. We work on your schedule and will reply as soon as possible!

Not to mention the Kickass food by Pink Taquiza and washing that deliouis taco bar down with The Beverage Brother's Margarita Machines while jammin to some hot tunes with DJ Mad MAX..
