About Wünderland & Co.
Maria Irwin, Executive Creative Director, is inspired by the simple beauties of the world. Her passion for turning dreamy ideas into reality, transforming old to new, and creating the imaginative is endless.
New York born & California raised – Maria grew up sewing and crafting and hasn’t stopped since. She’s not your average event planner – she’s an artist and crafty maker that loves learning how something is made or taking a pattern or creative idea and making it come to life.
Maria’s hands on approach and creative drive are forever ingrained everything she does. Her creativity and admiration for fashion led her to wardrobe styling/ merchandising. She went on to pursuing Fashion Design to earning a BA in Business Marketing, to later advancing as a Producer in the Advertising world. Flash forward to now, this “Mompreneur” is fulfilling her dream of running her event planning business in the Santa Ynez Valley & beyond.
Over the past decade, she has produced commercial and lifestyle shoots in the action sports industry, and continues to execute weddings and large events from SLO to San Diego. She also curates styled shoots and creative collaborations with like-minded creatives, boss ladies & local businesses.
Maria enjoys the entire experience of the planning process from the initial design meeting/ concept, to developing the event plan, managing the many moving parts, unfolding the magic and logistics behind the scenes, all the way up until the big reveal.
Creating and curating is her passion and something that she will always do, and one of the reasons for creating Wünderland & Co.
A Note from Maria – “I hope to inspire you and make your day dreams and ideas come true. I look forward to helping create your vision of Wünderland. I love a challenge and am very passionate about each and every project I take on. “
