Candelaria Design Client Appreciation Party

I want to thank our clients who made it to our Client Appreciation Party on Friday night! What a fantastic evening and it was so great to see so many of you there – especially some of you I had not seen in some time!


We are so blessed to be a part of your lives and create something as personal as your home. What amazing memories and experiences we share and it is so gratifying to know that so many of you live and experience our creation every day….that is what makes what we do so motivating to us as architects.

I want to thank my staff and especially Evelyn Jung who spearheaded the event and put it all together. I hope those of you who came walked away with one of our farewell party favor bags and our invite to my Photography show set for November 17th at 6pm at Isabel’s store and studio, Earth and Images. I will be featuring a series of various photos from my travels during the Scottsdale Art Walk.


So – the rest of this blog is a look back as some of those memories with our clients over the years. In the 17 years of Candelaria Design we have designed over 1000 homes all across the country and we currently have projects in design or under construction from Long Island to the coast of Oregon. We have been blessed to work and design homes for rock stars, athletes, Hollywood stars, politicians, restaurantuers, CEO’s of Fortune 500 companies, and just moms and dads and their families.


We have designed 60,000 sf homes down to 650 sf Guest Houses, whole house remodels and something as simple as a courtyard ramada. We love them all but what we love most are the people behind these projects and their unbelievable stories. We have so many fabulous projects on the boards or under construction now and we look forward to the years and projects and most importantly, friendships, ahead. A special thanks to my Mom and Dad who many of you met at the party. I know they had a fantastic time with everyone. Thank you for letting us be a part of your lives and for being a part of ours!
