OWNER & LEAD FLORAL DESIGNER ~ WPICC, CIFD & GAY CERTIFIED
It was shortly after planning my own wedding that I discovered my life’s passion – a passion for wedding planning that is! With over 20 years experience in the Hospitality and Restaurant Management field, I knew that I had a strong foundation on which to build.
To begin, I obtained my formal credentials, certification by the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada & 14 Stories Gay Wedding Institute followed by certification as a Floral Designer through the Canadian Institute of Floral Design. WPIC offers the only certified wedding coordination course in Canada and as an active member, I am committed to following a strict Code of Ethics.
Floral design was a natural addition to my portfolio – I have a deep appreciation for the special magic that the right floral combination can bring to your wedding day
Certifications aside, I feel that being a successful florist & wedding coordinator also requires that special ‘je ne sais quoi’. I truly love what I do and bring a commitment and dedication to the services I provide. After listening carefully to my clients, I use all my creative resources, innovation and enthusiasm to provide them with their dream – a wedding to remember
WPICC WEDDING COORDINATOR
I love the sounds of laughter as people enjoy themselves, the taste of fine wines and good food, I love celebrations of all kinds and I love LOVE! There are just a few of my favorite things, now combine that with the excitement and intimacy of a Wedding Ceremony and all the planning and fine details that come with and I truly am in my happy place.
While working in the Hospitality industry I developed a knack for planning while coordinating promotional events, 8 years ago, I entered the Corporate world and have again fallen into the “Planner” role by organizing & managing holiday parties, travel, special events and tradeshows. As many other Wedding Coordinators have, after planning my own wedding I experienced my “Eureka” moment, this is my passion! Soon after I completed the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada (WPIC) Course. Along with my commitment to the WPIC Code of Ethics, I dedicate myself to providing a beautiful and stress free experience to clients during all stages of their special day.
WPICC WEDDING COORDINATIOR
I am a Manager of Customer Service and love connecting with everyone I meet! I currently manage, coach and lead a team of great representatives who make legendary connections with their clients! With this same mantra I thoroughly enjoy and am involved in a variety of community and charitable organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, United Way and Children’s Miracle Network. Whether at work, volunteering or helping a friend with their wedding details, I find myself being so passionate about coordinating various events; thus leading me to WPIC.
I have had the pleasure of achieving my WPICC in 2016 and am excited to enter the wonderful world of wedding planning. I am incredibly detail orientated, have a creative imagination and love building relationships. The sound of music, beautiful arrangements, coordination and gatherings filled with laughter allow me to bring out my unique and personalized style to each event.
On the personal side, I am a mama bear to two beautiful girls who enjoy pixie dust and tea parties
