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 with a team of creatives working with her behind the scene & on location.
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 the Central Coast to Southern California & beyond. 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.
Maria & the Wünderland & Co. team’s goal is to inspire and make your day dreams and ideas come true. We love a challenge and are very passionate about each and every project we take on. Creating and curating is our passion and something we will always do. We look forward to helping you create your vision of Wünderland.
