I'm Dianna: your go-to girl for all things wedding!
From planning the often-overlooked little details to cooking up ideas that will put the proverbial cherry on top of your wedding sundae, I’m going to be your wedding guardian angel. Simply put, having me on your side is going to make your wedding planning experience easier, more enjoyable, and best of all…stress free! I’ve been there, done that, and seen it all. I even got the t-shirt (well actually, it's a sweater... but close enough, right?)
A fun fact about me: The first big event I ever planned was my eighth grade graduation formal. Then I headed up the high school prom committee two years in a row, and was named “most likely to become the next Martha Stewart” in my graduating yearbook. I guess planning killer events has always been my fate!
We're a match made in wedding planning heaven if...
> You're looking for someone who can bring your wedding day vision to life...while also keeping you on budget.
> You're feeling overwhelmed by your million-and-one options and have no idea where to start - or how to whittle down your ever-growing "Pinspiration" board.
> You really just want your special day to be about you - only a few fancy-pants bells and whistles required (it is a party after all!)
A little more about me...
I am... a brunch fanatic, burrito aficionado, and white wine devotee. I'm also the wife of a professional wrestler (yes, you read that correctly!) and the mother of the loudest little dog you'll ever meet. She's super cute and fluffy though, so that totally makes up for the headaches.
I can't live without... sunglasses, pashmina scarves, tasty hot beverages (I mean, have you tried Nanaimo bar hot chocolate?!), escape rooms, and Netflix. Especially Netflix.
I'm really good at... staying organized and building spreadsheets (just wait until you see your client kit!!) Shhh - don't tell my husband, but Google Drive is the real love of my life!
I'm really bad at... staying awake while watching Netflix. Seriously - give me two minutes and I'll be out like a light.
When I'm not JLo-ing it up with my clients, you'll find me... in line at the Tim Hortons drive-thru, baking my famous butterscotch blondies (they just keep disappearing from their container...), or at the board game cafe around the corner having a Headbanz tournament with all of my favourite people.
Credentials (a.k.a - The Fancy Stuff)...
> I became a certified wedding planner through the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada (WPIC) in 2008, and graduated with an honours Bachelor of Commerce in Hospitality Administration from the University of Guelph in 2011.
> I've had the pleasure of working as an in-house wedding and event coordinator for not one, not two, but three of the most sought-after wedding venues in the Greater Hamilton Area.
> Most importantly, I've spent the last decade gaining tons of experience by planning and coordinating over a hundred weddings in multiple venues, as well as learning everything I could about other parts of the industry. From cake design to backdrops and head table decor, I've done it all - and I can’t wait to share all of my knowledge and experience with you!!
