The celeventé Vision
Life is Better with More Parties in It
Who doesn't love a good party, but also lament about the time and effort involved?
celeventé was founded by long-time friends and hi-tech executives Chris Stack and Yasmine Lopez who share a passion for adventure, entertaining, fashion, travel, cooking naturally, and technology.
Our goal in starting celevente.com is to offer practical yet inspirational resources for making entertaining easier to plan, execute, and ultimately more enjoyable.
On the verge of turning 50, we decided there was no time to lament about getting older. Instead we encouraged each other by running, hiking and cooking delicious, healthy meals balanced with copious amounts of wine and adventures celebrating life. In the process we managed to both lose 25 lbs and gain tremendous enthusiasm for what lies ahead.
At this stage, we are committed to putting our best selves forward and being as fearless as possible as we reach for personal and professional goals. We will share some of our crazy adventures along the way.
Our motto is "life is to be enjoyed and every day is an occasion to celebrate without hassle and stress".
celeventé is brought to you with these goals in mind.
We hope you enjoy our site and look forward to hearing from you.
Chris and Yasmine
