Experience, knowledge and trust
are at the cornerstone of our business
since its inception in 1996.
Events come in all sizes and shapes, and like people, each event has its own unique aesthetic vocabulary and rhythm whether an intimate gathering or a lavish shindig. From social, corporate and charity events to mindful and wellness retreats – we listen to the story you want to tell and deliver a vision in glorious color.
Life is an event…let us plan yours.

Originally from San Francisco, Wendi moved to the City of Angels in the late 1980s. She began working in film production and business affairs at various studios including Columbia Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox, Warner Brothers and Universal Pictures, as well as producing small, local theater. She served as IMAX Corporation’s Head of Film Development from 1993 – 2001, and was instrumental in the development, acquisition and production of IMAX’s narrative and documentary film slate.
Wendi joined Moondance in 2002, bringing a distinctive visual focus to event storytelling from her past experience producing for stage and screen. Her title, COO/Fountainhead, expresses her creative approach to life as a continuing stream of ideas. She believes events embody the same components as a film or a play – inspiration, communication, preparation, and activation.
Just as the Moon reflects light from the Sun to Earth, Wendi crafts each event to reflect the unique light of the client.
