Over 2 decades in the making, Celebrations by Samara, LLC is a culmination of more than twenty years of event production industry experience and an ultimate goal to put the host back in the party. Samara started her professional career as an Event Planner in New York City designing and coordinating all aspects of large scale, complex corporate events for an award-winning event production company. A few years later, Samara left the lights and glamor of the big city for the more nomadic life as a “Navy Wife” but her love of party planning and coordination remained strong. Never content with the status quo, Samara quickly jumped back to her passion coordinating and executing several major Navy events and formal galas for the Submarine community.
