Meet the team

Hi! I’m Maggie

Wedding & Event Planner

Maggie Rodriguez, Founder and CEO of Inspired Events, has been on the cutting edge of wedding planning for many years, most recently recognized for her achievements as a nominee for Wedding Wire’s Weddi Awards in the professional achievement category.

This award recognizes an individual who has dedicated their professional life to creating superior events for their couples while going above and beyond in delivering customer service. They have distinguished themselves as a leader within the industry. Maggie is renowned for her expertise, philanthropy, and enthusiasm. She is often relied on by local and national media for her knowledge of the wedding industry.

She began in the field as a venue owner, opening the doors to The Zen House in 2005, to lovely couples looking for an intimate place to say I DO! After dealing with dozens of caterers, florists, and other wedding professionals, Maggie decided it was time to do more to help her couples. Many were spending a small fortune on their wedding only to be disappointed with the quality of the services they were receiving from their vendors. She jumped into the catering and planning field. Her philosophy is simple “affordable luxury, “ and so began her journey. After building the award winning venue, catering & planning firm, Fetes & Events and The Zen House, Maggie sold her interests in the business, divorced, and did it all over again. She handpicked a team, and brought together like-minded professionals to give the clients of Inspired Events a seamless wedding planning experience.

day!
