So excited to share my story with you! In 2013, I established an event planning + design company that I have grown into a team of outstanding and seasoned experience creators, event consultants, planners, and designers.
Working with brides, corporate organizations, and clients to produce events of all sizes provided a great deal of understanding of how experience and memories matter. Previously working in hospitality, marketing, sales, events, customer service, and engineering, I gained in-depth experience in finding ways to ensure that teams work together seamlessly and manage and nurture relationships with clients and partners.
Those years of working in diverse industries (legit hustler!) have allowed me to establish profound attention to detail, a strong work ethic, commitment to professionalism, empathy, and a calm demeanor.
My love of music, dance, arts, comedy, warm and creative compositions, fashion, and modern aesthetics are tools I use to creatively design and plan custom experiences and events.
I hold a degree in Electrical Engineering and a diploma in Business Administration. To establish my expertise when I ventured into the events industry, I also received training from The Wedding Planners Institute of Canada, Preston Bailey Design Programs, Karen Tran Workshop and Canadian Institute of Floral Design.

PLANNING RESOURCES BEGINNINGS
With our awesome brides and amazing clients asking us for advice about their wedding and events (which we are always happy to provide!), the team and I have decided to share variations of all those advice (and more!). This brought us to creating our "planning resources" page, where we share creative, inspiring ideas, wedding concepts, fantastic tips, and how-to step-by-step guides to help make your planning journey more manageable and fun!
With a combined team experience of over 10 years in wedding & event planning, including logistics and design, as well as a collection of insights from fellow industry experts, we’ve curated these guides and planning resources to help make your wedding planning manageable and fun!
* WHAT WE BELIEVE IN: We believe that if the wedding planning process is broken down into manageable steps and realistic inspiring ideas that build confidence, the journey will be more enjoyable and fun! Every newlywed-to-be should feel inspired, confident & truly enjoy their planning journey.
At the core, our goal is to inspire everyone to celebrate life and love!
* OTHER FAVORITE THINGS BESIDES WEDDINGS & EVENTS: Having a good laugh, eating and drinking wine. (but who doesn't? lol!)
* RANDOM: Love watching Suits, CSI, and House re-runs (while working!). Also, I cried so hard watching This is Us (again, but who didn't? lol!) These ones I have on repeat too (both on Youtube & Spotify): Oprah's Life Class, Ted Talks, and basically anything inspirational/motivational.
* RANDOM #2: I LOVE to turn everything into a dance party. If you see someone dancing AND hear someone singing to a song playing anywhere (even at Walmart!), there's a good chance it's me! Lol.
I appreciate you being here! We plan to create better resources for all of you! xo -Maria
cheers to an enjoyable and manageable wedding planning!
