Meet the Team
CEO & FOUNDER
While Yara’s background is in the medical field the love for design led her to take the risk of building her dream job. Her experience in the event industry has created an opportunity to let her creativity develop through time creating trendsetting designs to follow for years to come. Her passion for event design comes from her childhood and she’s developed a reputation from the event industry of an executor and artist. When she’s not designing gorgeous wedding decor for others she is enjoying a nice run out at the lake and enjoying outdoor sports together with Gabriel and their two children Gabriel and Gisele.
“My goal is that our team exceeds expectations creating a memorable experience that will result in long lasting friendships with our clients”. – Yara Castelan, Co Owner of UDE
Gabriel De La Cerda
As co owner of Unique Design & Events, he oversees our larger event productions as well as our week to week logistical support. Gabriel is also responsible for all of our custom ceiling draping installations.
When he isn’t working he and Yara enjoy spending time on the grill hosting friends and family as well as playing assistant coach for both children’s after school sports.
“When our team is out executing events we always ensure that our client is completely happy before walking out of the ballroom. We want to assure that our clients continue to happily refer our company as one of Austin’s Best.” – Gabriel De La Cerda , Co Owner
