The Wedding Industry


Being able to internalize clients visions, bring them to life and add a special touch of magic to their day fills my cup. The reward of truly connecting with clients, in order to add an extra fraction of joy to such monumental and intimate moments in their life, simply never gets old. I look forward to the experiences we get to share with each of you, bringing alllllllll the vibes, and allowing you to feel confident in our ability to deliver a vision.

Company History

 I was once a little girl fascinated by clean lines, impeccable design and attention to detail- whether that be a car, a piece of clothing or an atmosphere- beyond awareness of the fact that I would one day graduate with a degree in Fashion Business Management from FIT. Although my fashion degree was a step in the right direction, I yearned to bring concepts to completion, put my creativity to the test and ultimately, highlight my true passion for adding enchanment to events. 

Herein lies the birth of Vamped Up Van Co.!

Valerie the Van made her way here from Guatemala and even spent some time there as a wedding bus, so she is no stranger to a good time. We found Valerie in Connecticut and brought her to New York to star in the creation of Vamped Up Van Co.
