About Wayne

A Celebrated Designer and Event Maker

From his first foray into planning weddings and events in 1985, Wayne Gurnick recognized that brides and others needed a knowledgeable and reliable source to ease the stress associated with the process. From that, he formed his first event business, InOvations—a successful and inspired company recognized for its innovations worthy of ovations. Today, Moments by Wayne Gurnick is the updated brand with the same set of values and service.

With a passion for design, a sensitive eye for detail, and a calm and organized demeanor, Wayne works closely with those planning an event or celebration to help them realize their vision.

As the trusted source for brides-to-be and others planning a singularly important celebration in Southern California and throughout the United States, he brings the highest level of panache to the process, and of course, the event.


Finding Beauty in Nature and Good Design

For as long as he can remember, Wayne has possessed a deep kinship with flowers. (And yes, people, too!) Beginning in high school, he was employed by an upscale florist that created arrangements for some of the who’s who in Hollywood. While it was paid employment, Wayne perceived it as an avenue for creativity and expression—something that to this day is a signature of the weddings he “arranges.” And even while flowers may be temporary, he believes floral design to be a true art form, and one that brings immense joy to others. 

Taking his cue from his connection to flowers and the sensorial beauty they bring, Wayne opened his own floral business, Floral Creations by Wayne, and over the years came to know on a personal level the people and places for whom he was designing, all the while building his company around what’s most important to his clients—trust.

Wayne Gurnick is the host of Wedding Words of Wisdom ™, an online radio program, where he interviews experts in all aspects of weddings and events.
