You deserve to have the wedding ceremony of your dreams, and I would be honored to have the opportunity of working with you to make your vision a reality. I enjoy expressing myself through poetry and art. Other hobbies are reading, gardening and fishing. I have always been eager to help people so I trained and worked as a Nursing Assistant at the Grace Hospital in Ottawa. My wish to continue learning, combined with wanting to be creative, led me to train in Event Planning at Algonquin College. With that knowledge I have successfully organized a fundraiser for cancer, given consultation to brides and helped with a local bridal fair. Whatever your need may be, I would be thrilled to help you with the happiest, most magical and memorable wedding ceremony of your life.
