Meet Esme

Hi! My name is Esme Krahn, founder and lead wedding planner of BodaMaestra Holistic Wedding Planning. My love for wedding planning started in 2004 and is still going strong! I enjoy spending time in nature and the company of my husband, Joe and our children. I also love meditating, practicing yoga and learning about the power of crystals. I'm a certified Reiki Master by the Reiki Sanctuary of Northern Virginia.  Lastly, I have more hobbies than I care to count, but my latest craze is baking. 

I believe
in the power of love
and in connecting with our clients
on a personal level.

Meet Yvette

Hi! I'm Yvette De Paz. I'm Client Experience Associate (and former BodaMaestra bride!). I love working behind the scenes to produce events that are elegant, beautiful, and flawless.

When I'm not planning events, I’m enjoying life with family. I am blessed beyond my wildest dreams and it is my joy to share time with you.
