ABOUT


IT'S ABOUT HONOURING YOUR VISION AND ELEVATING YOUR GUESTS' EXPERIENCE.

You want your wedding to be a celebration of you that reflects your values and lifestyle.

You cherish love, laughter & quality time and you want to ensure that your guests have an amazing time at your wedding.

Well, that's what I want for you too!

I plan and design personal and stress-free weddings with a calm, organized, and reassuring presence so you can actually enjoy your wedding day along with your people.


Hey, I'm Jess Stacey! I am the owner and lead planner at Bonafide Events Studio. My style is earthy, natural, and organic yet refined. I’m easy going but thorough.

When we work together, my goal is to supply you with a personalized experience providing you with knowledgeable advice and creative ideas. 

Starting out as a hairstylist has taught me a lot about people. It’s no wonder I went on to take Sociology at Brock University. It was there that I discovered my passion for planning.

I obtained my event management certification through Mohawk College and I am also a certified wedding coordinator with the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada.

When I'm not planning weddings you will find me outdoors, soaking up the sun with my extremely funny & kind-hearted partner Scott, our adventurous son Ellis and our playful pup Ollie! 

I'm all about sharing moments and spending quality time with my friends and family.

Let's Connect

Happy Couples

  • Our wedding wouldn't have been what it was without Bonafide Events Studio! I got to actually enjoy the day without worrying what needs to be done next or where everyone needs to be. They were on top of everything from the very first meeting, even when I changed my mind a hundred times!
