Hi! I’m Santana and I am beyond excited to announce the 2 year anniversary of EVENTS BY SANTANA;  my business, my passion, my baby! 

Events By Santana has coordinated over 60 events, featured in numerous bridal magazines, made TV appearances and competed in the local Dancing with the Stars. I have partnered with companies such as The Hammock Shops and Gay Dolphin to organize events including the renowned Sun Fun Festival and The Shrimp and Grits Cook-Off. Charleston Weddings are always a personal favorite and the Market Common Fashion Show is a thrilling event I look forward to every year!

This summer, EBS has been accepted into the Leadership Grand Strand program, giving me the perfect opportunity to give back to a community that has given so much to me over these two years.

I have had an outrageous amount of support from my family, friends, and vendors I’ve met over the years. My girl Heather is a smart, driven, beautiful, creative supermodel who will do big things with her future! 

Especially thank you to two particular people :: 1. My boyfriend, Bill, for always believing in my success, sticking with me through the ups & downs, and cheering me on every step of the way! 2. Hannah (Hannah Ruth Photography), my awesome, goofy, photographer best friend! You have captured my (our) journey of wackiness and continue to amaze me with your beautiful work! 

This company represents diversity, edginess, strength, and independence. I will continue to be take chances and try new things and never forget where I came from. 

There’s no telling how far EBS will go!





Hannah & Greg are one-of-a-kind, complete opposite individuals yet fit together so perfectly.  The geometric theme was ideal for Hannah's bubbly, playful personality. 

When looking for a venue they struggled at first but quickly found her dream location - A southern, graceful country club in the heart of the Grand Strand and one of Myrtle Beach’s oldest landmarks, Pine Lakes Country Club. Delicate anemones were flown in from Italy and became the centerfold to the bouquets & arrangement. This wedding had all the bells & whistles including moscow mules, airbrush hats and a geo shaped cake with marbling fondant and gold foiling. Hannah & Greg went out with a BANG! with a surprise firework exit!






2017 was a year of many wonderful new partnerships! One being the home of the best view in town. The SkyWheel in Myrtle Beach is 200-feet above sea level making it one of the optimal places to observe the Atlantic Ocean and all the fun to be had on the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. EVENTS BY SANTANA was brought in to coordinate monthly events for all locals and first-timers alike. 

We had Spooktacular events, CarnEVIL’s, Who-Bilation's, Season Festivals, an exclusive Eclipse party and many more themed days!

"Santana is phenomenal! She & Heather made our wedding day everything we dreamed of and more! I had the most stress free and relaxing wedding day and it's all because of the hard work that was put in by these awesome ladies! We couldn't have asked for a better event coordinator!"

-Arin & Dustin Owens

"Santana is the Queen of fixing emergencies! When i needed a new dress two weeks before the wedding, she not only helped me pick one, she found me an amazing seamstress to complete the alterations in 5 days! On the day of the wedding, when my priest got on a bus to the wrong wedding, she altered the timeline and coordinated with the other vendors so seamlessly that my guests seriously thought it was a 'Southern thing' to have the cocktail hour before the ceremony! She has great design ideas, creative budgeting tools lol, and continues to help you with questions weeks after the wedding! Not only a true professional, but has become a great friend too! Cheers, girlfriend!"  

-Cristin & Jamie Melton

"Toby and myself (Amanda) were fortunate enough to meet Santana before she went out on her own... she has gone above and beyond to help us plan for our destination wedding... which will be happening in September... the vendors that she connected us to are amazing...

Congratulations Santana... we love you! Good luck to you and you future endeavors!!"

"Santana was amazing! She took all the stress from me on my wedding day and gave me the confidence that she would take care of everything. She made sure everyone was organized, on time, and dealt with any issues. When I saw everything for the first time it was exactly how I had been imagining it! Santana was extremely professional and made us feel so comfortable with her. She honestly went above and beyond our expectations. I would highly recommend her for any event"
