How it Began

Tutera’s grandfather, a successful florist, first noticed his grandson’s artistic ability at an early age and encouraged David to pursue his destiny. At age 19, with the sound advice of his grandfather and only one client, David opened his own event planning business. Today, David Tutera presides over an award winning company built from experience, and dedication.


David lives in Los Angeles with his husband Joey, daughters Cielo and Gracie as well as their dogs Lucy and Teddy. His family means everything to him and he takes it very seriously and honors it and holds it very close to his heart. The abundance of love for family is important and always must come first.

The art of entertaining is about joy, love, and simplicity
