ALIX LEVY, CMP
Director, Design & Events

Forever in love with special occasions of all shapes and sizes, Alix attributes her event knowledge mostly to her time spent watching Martha Stewart; but, she entertains the idea that she was possibly influenced by the array of jobs she’s had in the event world over the years or the degrees in graphic design and communications from her beloved tree-filled alma mater, UC Davis. Alix’s passion for event styling and organization led her to Cappa & Graham Terramar in 2012 where she’s thrived since.

A true Taurus, Morgan’s wit, eye for aesthetics, and adventurous spirit enhance every project she undertakes.
