When did you get into event design?
I started out by volunteering to coordinate and design small events at my church when I was still in high school. Following my college Hospitality program, I began interning in the event world, and knew I was in the right place. I got to work alongside some really amazing planners in Toronto early on, which gave me the opportunity to learn a lot about the industry and how I’d want my own business to be.
Why did you decide to pursue event design?
I’ve always loved weddings—that I knew. But there was a time when I couldn’t quite put my finger on which part of the industry I wanted to put my time into. I got the chance to work at a couple different bridal stores. I got to do some venue supervision at a couple different types of venues. But it was my time working with some of the city’s top wedding planners, that solidified my love for event design.
What are you most inspired by?
I get a lot of inspiration from my clients in general. Every couple is so different, and so unique, and I love that we can express that through their wedding. On the other hand, colors are a big source of inspiration for me. With this shoot in particular, the peach color was something I couldn’t get out of my mind, when I started designing it. When I finally sat down to dream up what this shoot would look like, the color peach was at the centre of everything I envisioned.
What is your favorite part about working with couples on their dream day?
I’m a major sucker when it comes to all things weddings—and on a wedding day, I have many favorite moments. But near the top of my list is walking my clients into their reception space for the first time, and seeing them take in every inch of the room with the details they had been dreaming about, being brought to life. It’s such a nerve-wracking moment, for both the couple and myself, but in the end it’s so rewarding.
