While planning my own destination wedding and being a maid-of-honour not long after, I discovered a passion for wedding design and event coordination. After my destination wedding, I studied wedding planning and received certification in wedding coordinating from The Wedding Planners Institute of Canada (WPIC).
Nearly a year after studying the industry, I decided to go ahead with my dream and launch my own wedding planning business. Since then, I have been nominated for an Ottawa Wedding Award in the wedding planner category twice (2017 and 2018) and for a Faces Magazine Award in the event planner category (2018). Also, my work has been featured on online blogs for Elegant Wedding Magazine, Wedding Bells Magazine, and MOD Wedding, as well as in print for Ottawa Wedding Magazine.
While being in the travel business, I built successful partnerships with luxury resort brands, including Sandals, Hard Rock Hotels, Karisma, UNICO 2087 and Nobu. Each year I have the opportunity to attend familiarization trips for selected agents at these resorts to learn about each property as well as attend Destination Wedding Conferences. I stay on the top of the newest trends and know what is happening in the destination wedding industry.
Tell me more about you.
Well let me start with the most important: my family. I have two children, my handsome little-man Hugo and my beautiful girl Malia, and I am married to my amazing Terence. When Terence proposed to me a few years ago, it opened my eyes to the world of wedding planning, specifically through planning our own destination wedding. So it all started with family and has led me to become an owner of a wedding planning company.
Why should I hire you?
I am a Certified Wedding Planner and Destination Wedding Specialist, Sandals Certified Specialist, WOW Specialist and TICO Certified Travel Agent. But, most importantly, I will always provide my clients with the best service I can possibly deliver – your wedding is my passion! In my experience, I am so grateful to be able to have connected with my clients on so many levels. I am your friend, your confidant, your assistant, your travel agent and your wedding planner …and sometimes I can be that person you can vent to if anything is getting stressful.
