About Miya Kay
Owner & Principal Planner
M y name is Miya Kay Carew. I am a true California Girl and lover of the “simple life”. Finding beauty, appreciation and gratitude in every situation is my personal mantra. Life is pretty good: I have the most incredible boyfriend, dog & cat, home, and career. On any "day off" you can find me hiking the hills with my dog, soaking up the sun & practicing yoga.
After graduating from Chapman University with a degree in Communication Studies, I plugged into the corporate world as a Project Manager. Eventually I expanded my horizons, and love for travel, as a destination wedding planner in Isla Mujeres , Mexico a tiny island in the Caribbean.
In 2014, I returned to San Clemente and began working for Iva Lee’s Catering as Director of Catering & Wedding Planner. In 2016, I joined Joy N Company Events, where I was able to take on more elaborate projects and clients, but more importantly I was able to work along side my best friends. I am still a proud partner with Iva Lee's Catering and Joy N Company Events. It was only natural for me to branch out and create Miya Kay Events. As I have grown professionally, I have expanded my skills in several other social event planning facets, including Fundraising and Corporate events.
With 8 years of event planning experience, I have built endless vendor & client friendships, managed hundreds of dynamic events locally and internationally, with enthusiasm, ensuring each vision is fulfilled with immaculate execution.
Building friendships makes the planning process a fun experience. I am so excited to get to know you!
