I specialize in wedding and event planning and design: from logistics to concept creation and development, special themes, floral, linens, floral design and overall decor and styling. From small wedding to lavish private events, from garden spaces to minimalist loft venues.



Carla Measer-Costamagna has been devoted to making things beautiful since she was a little girl. Growing up in Europe and South America, she has experienced a broad and diverse array of cultures, traditions, tastes, sounds, and colorful lifestyles. Always with a love for the arts, she pursued a career in Interior Design in Lima, Peru and later in Art Critics and Didactics at the historic Brera Art Academy in Milan.
Carla always looked for innovative and budget friendly ways to entertain, using her creativity to place unusual elements in her designs and acquiring a vast collection of vases, plates, glasses and decorations that she could utilize in various house dinners and parties.
Prior to starting Costamana Design, Carla worked in New York City for 5 years in event planning and design, creating beautiful settings for companies such as Macy’s Herald Square. In 2006 Carla won the ISES (International Special Events Society) "Vision of the Future" award.Then, in 2007 Carla moved to San Francisco and worked as design assistant for renowned event architect Robert W. Fountain for 2 years.
This is where she had the chance learn even more, dive deep into her passion and help create esthetically beautiful settings for such noteworthy events as the San Francisco Ballet Opening, San Francisco Symphony Opening, and many upscale weddings and social gatherings including a 5-day wedding on a private island in the Bahamas.
These experiences combined with her world travel and her passion for entertaining has made Carla who she is now, a designer capable of understanding and adapting to her clients view, getting into their minds and transforming their wishes into reality.
Be it a small gathering in a private home, or a lavish affair. Whether in a romantic garden or in a minimalist loft, Carla’s specialty is attention to detail and an artistic approach to creating experiences for her clients that will appeal to all the senses.
Carla recently moved back to the East Coast and formed a home with her husband in the quaint town of Evans, NY. The perfect background to pursue her events and design career. You'll probably find her any given day hunting for the perfect flea market bud vase, or at an outdoor cafe with a glass of red wine and the latest issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine. Read less

Carla was a consummate professional, a kind friend, and a fantastic person to have by our side as my spouse and family and I all endeavored to plan a wedding. She was completely responsive, always had our back, was all over details, has a truly beautiful and unique sense of style and aesthetic, and more than that was reasonable with her prices, didn't cut any corners, was ethical through and through, and made the experience easier, more fun, and definitely prettier and more organized. I would recommend her to anyone if you are looking for a drama-free, sensational wedding and helper with it all. She had our back throughout and always responded right away when my Mom or I had a question or a concern, something that was invaluable especially in the months right before. Besides planning with us, she did our flowers and they were spectacular. Her style and work are authentic, heartfelt, and yield just gorgeous results. Buffalo and its brides are lucky to have her!

I wish I had booked Carla and her team earlier in the process! I planned my East Aurora wedding from NYC and having her to help with organize the logistics and coordinate vendors while I was out of town was SO helpful. Knowing her team had it handled made the days leading up and the day of much less stressful for both myself and my family, whom otherwise would have been on call the day of! There were a bunch of details I would have forgotten without her. The day of went off without a hitch, my family and I didn't need to deal with a single question. I'd recommend them to anyone getting married in the WNY area!

Carla was wonderful to work with--blew me away with her talent and hard work, everything went smoothly and her design skills impeccable, and it fit my vision perfectly. She was responsive and extremely helpful from start to finish--I could not have pulled off my wedding without her! She is also a great value for her services, compared to other planners/designers in the area. Would highly recommend Carla for your planning/decorative/floral needs!

I would definitely recommend Carla to any bride that is looking for a wedding planner. I hired Carla as both my wedding planner and florist for my recent wedding and she did an incredible job. She captured my wedding vision perfectly and saved me so much stress because I knew she was on it. She is worth every dollar!

Costamagna Design provided planning, decor, and floral services for our wedding, which was at an offsite venue with no in-house vendors. The planning and execution required a lot of coordination and had a lot of moving parts. Carla did an excellent job helping us retain top notch vendors and worked as a liaison to keep us within our budget. She and her team set up the venue day-of, and when we arrived it looked stunning! Carla is very talented, creative, and has a great eye for detail. She made our wedding beautiful!

I honestly don't know where to start with this review because without Carla I seriously don't think there would have been a wedding! My husband and I live in San Francisco and were planning a Buffalo, NY wedding, so we knew we wanted a wedding planner from the minute we got engaged. Carla was helpful from the first time we spoke to her and set up appointments for us every time we were in town - she helped us with venue selection, with rentals, and with other vendors. She also took our vision of a classic, white & gold wedding and make it truly spectacular! She did all of our flowers which we received numerous compliments on. She did all of our decor for the ceremony and the reception which was just amazing!!!! I still can't believe how beautiful it was and how smoothly everything ran the day of the wedding. Instead of stressing, my husband and I got to actually enjoy our wedding! Thank you, Carla!!!!!

Carla made the experience wonderful. I went into the event with huge list of demands and not the budget to match it. She achieved everything I was hoping for. When she got local quotes that were far out of our pricing, she relentlessly kept at it until she found exactly what I wanted at the price we needed. She navigated tricky parental needs with that of our own effortlessly. I would highly recommend her for any event. She is young, ambitious (in the god way) and energetic, without being aggressive or overbearing. She sees an event from the larger picture and can creatively problem solve with ease.
