Stratford Ontario Event PlannerI'm Jessica Faria Stacey, the Owner and Planner behind Bonafide Events Studio.

I started Bonafide Events in 2013 as a way to carry on our family tradition of celebrating all life’s moments. From business success to love stories, all of the events in our life deserve to be celebrated. After all, Life is a celebration!

I graduated from Brock University in 2010 with a B.A. in Sociology and I went on to study Event Planning at Mohawk College and graduated with a diploma in Event Management: Meetings and Conventions in 2011.

In 2012, I became a Certified Wedding Coordinator with the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada. From there, I decided to enter into the crazy world of entrepreneurship and I'll never look back.

If we are going to be working together you need to know that I easily get excited about lists, timelines and event designs. I love to dance, cook, drink tea and try new foods. In my down time, you'll find me sewing, painting, travelling, antique hunting with my husband Scott and checking off my bucket list one experience at a time. 

I love that events bring us together and allow for shared experiences. In my opinion, that is what this life is all about. I would love to meet you and hear about your story and create a custom event just for you!

What Our Clients Think

  • Bonafide Events Studio was an amazing addition to our wedding day! My husband and I were skeptical about hiring a day of coordinator but after working with Jessica Stacey we can't imagine doing everything on our own. She was great with accommodating her services to match our needs and so wonderful with completing all of the fine details that made our day so special. She continued to offer advice and support leading up to our wedding day and fell nothing short of wonderful when it came to the day of. We highly recommend Bonafide Events Wedding services.
