Sonja Brunner

Wedding Planning & Coordination

Sonja Brunner grew up in a German, Mexican-American home in Berkeley. After graduating high school, she moved to Germany where she found her passion for DJ’ing and travel. With a 20-year background in business management and customer service, she began working with Weddings by Aimée as a lead wedding coordinator and planner. Being a wedding DJ for over a decade, Sonja has worn multiple hats as master of ceremonies and certified party starter. With Sonja’s various hats, she is also a dedicated member of the Santa Cruz community serving on various committees.

When she’s not being a mother, a DJ, or community mover and shaker, she spends her time staying active with her co-ed softball team, standup paddle boarding, roller skating, spending time with friends, wine and cheese, dancing, and bringing her infectious laughter to cocktail parties. No amount of words in any language can express how much Sonja has given to weddings and couples over the last decade. With all of her many accomplishments, somehow Sonja manages to do it all with fun, dedication, and style, and we are so happy to have her on our team!
