The Location Connection, Inc., established in 1991, was designed to offer a variety of privately owned mansions and homes to the entertainment industry for film and television shoots. A special events division was initiated to assist couples looking for the perfect setting for a dream wedding, and corporations looking to plan special events with style. However, when Darian Mathias, President and Creator of the company, was commissioned to locate a fairytale wedding mansion for the nuptials of John Tesh and Connie Selleca, a unique enterprise was formed. The extraordinary event made the cover of People magazine and Location Connection, Inc. became one of Los Angeles’ premiere companies for wedding planning, film locations, and corporate events.
