Sonia Sharma: January's MovingUp Client Spotlight
This month's INSURENEX MovingUp Client Spotlight is on Sonia Sharma, owner and founder of Sonia Sharma Events. Established in 2006, the boutique event production company based in Venice California specializes in the production of high end corporate events, multicultural weddings and event planning support for a full range of social occasions.
Lighting, textures, colors, venues and an expansive knowledge of the finest cuisine and wine are just a few words to describe Sonia Sharma's work. What started as an internship with a local event agency turned into a job and consequently an opportunity to uncover entrepreneurial skills that today drive the success of her growing business. Fueling her dream of owning her own business was the desire to be her own boss knowing the risks and challenges that come with it but also appreciating the rewards. A follower of everything creative, Sonia was also inspired by many talented designers in the event planning industry "I wanted to be one of them," said Sonia.
Sonia's motivation during her early years was the hunger to learn and improve herself "I networked, asked a lot of questions and wanted to grow as an individual," she said. Her curiosities led her to engage and learn from many people in the business "I got a lot of advice from my colleagues who had more experienced in the field. Whether it was a florist or lighting company, they were always there to guide me when I asked for help," said Sonia. With a drive for originality and attention to detail, Sonia brought together a team who share the same passion to deliver sophistication and personality on every project, working closely with their clients to create unique experiences and lasting memories.
A wife, mother, business owner and community volunteer, life hasn't always been easy. Sonia credits her optimism, positive outlook and a knack for giving it all her best as her qualities for overcoming obstacles and challenges. Like most entrepreneurs, the first years are typically the hardest; facing challenges in everything from creating a business culture that reflected her aesthetic, taste in design, style and detail, to finding new clients or being confronted with financial difficulties because of the lack of a steady income "I worked two jobs while building my business and it was worth it. said Sonia. Today Sonia Sharma Events Designs are often displayed at trendy chic hotels like the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills; her work has been featured in numerous fashion magazines such as Bride, Bespoke and Grace Ormonde Wedding Style, Inspired Celebrations as well as many trend-setting lifestyle blogs.
Understanding that support from others is an important part of her success, Sonia believes in giving back to the community. Every year her company chooses a charity to create awareness and fundraise. Last year, they worked with The Vera Davis McClendon Youth and Family Center that provides free resources to low-income families in the Venice area.
We asked Sonia what advice she has for aspiring entrepreneurs especially young women looking to pursue their entrepreneurial calling: "Don't give up! The first few years are tough. If you continue to learn and grow, you will be successful. If you have to work multiple jobs in order to start your business then do so, it's worth it. Working in my office with my team and working in the field with my clients is the best part of my day as a business owner," said Sonia.
We asked Sonia how INSURENEX has been resourceful to her and her business and she generously shared this with us: "When it comes to coverage placement to protect myself and my business, I feel secure knowing INSURENEX is my insurance advisory partner," said Sharma.

To say Sonia is not my normal bride is a vast understatement. I mean that in a couple different ways. First of all, we go back quite a few years as she used to help out a coordinator I used to work for often. We have gotten to know each really well in the subsequent years when she took off on her own a few years back and formed Sonia Sharma Events. She has referred me to some of my most incredible events I have had the opportunity of covering. Most of which I cannot post on my blog due to privacy issues but suffice to say I appreciate her very much. Because I value her and our friendship and working relationship so much, it goes without saying that I wanted to create something extra special for her. She is also different from most of my brides simply because you pretty much know where you stand with Sonia. I'm a WYSIWYG person myself, so I love that about her. (You'll immediately see what i mean in the opening seconds of this clip ; ) ) She is also a very loyal person and has stuck behind me and has had my back through thick and thin.
She saw lots of my same day edits and, unbeknownst to me until her wedding day" had dreamed about having one at her own wedding day". The reason I say that is because if you know Sonia, you know that she is not the type that shows much emotion on that outside so it was quite a surprise for me to see her soft side.
Pouring rain did its best to curtail Sonia's vision and although it had to be modified a bit, she never freaked out. She just enjoyed herself to the fullest and let things be as they were.
However, if you know Sonia, it really is her to say something like that so in the end I came to the conclusion that it HAD to be in there.
This is one of my favorite wedding videos of all time - you really captured the moments and who Sonia is as a person... she is perfect ;)
Gorgeous couple and gorgeous video... love the work you do!
