Hello, I'm Jess!
Welcome to Bonafide Events Studio! Regardless of the type of event you are hosting, I am dedicated to helping you enjoy a smooth planning process and to helping you create an unforgettable and personalized event. From concept to design to logistical planning, I am able to see how your event will all come together.
Your event should reflect you or your brand and it should also focus on your guests. How will they move through your event? What do you want them to do while they are there? What do you want them to remember? When we work together, every element of your event is carefully designed to enhance your guests’ experience.
I am an avid list maker and enjoy building timelines and curating unique event details. I love to dance, cook, drink tea and try new foods. When I'm not planning events, you'll find me sewing, painting, travelling, antique hunting with my husband Scott and checking off my bucket list one experience at a time.
My journey to becoming a wedding and corporate event planner began five years ago after spending six years in school and volunteering at several not-for-profit and community events. I have a B.A. in Sociology from Brock University, a certificate in Event Management: Convention and Meetings from Mohawk College and I am a Certified Wedding Coordinator with the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada. After years of moving around, I have finally settled down in a quiet town just outside of Stratford, Ontario and Stratford has quickly become one of my favourite places to host an event.
I believe in developing a sustainable future and that means; protecting our environment, empowering business, engaging in our communities, celebrating life and building real relationships. I would love to meet you, hear about your story and create a custom event just for you.
