Owner and Lead Planner
Hi, my name is Amanda and welcome to the experience that is Sea and Silk Events! Wedding planning is something that truly combines a lot of my loves and passions – fashion, design, food and beverage, and hospitality. I have always been drawn to fashion and interior design and adore using these as inspirations for my wedding designs. I’m a graduate of Algonquin College’s Event Management Graduate Program, as well as a University Graduate. I have been in this industry since 2016 and Sea and Silk was born from a love of all things events. My wedding style is a little bit of everything (so many things are pretty and gorgeous!) but if I had to narrow it down I love a good mix of modern meets timeless.
Amanda is only available for styles and designs, and full wedding planning. If you’re looking for day-of coordination or partial planning, one of our team members would be happy to help!
- I love a good glass of wine with a delicious meal.
- I am automatically happier when near the ocean or water.
- I ADMIT IT: I love Taylor Swift and am actively waiting for all the future “Taylor’s Version” albums to come out so I can sing off tune very loudly to them all.
- I am sucker for a good AD Home Tour or Vogue 73 Questions
- Bare feet over shoes, always.
I have always loved events, gatherings, decorating and planning. I am an artistic person and creative expression has always been a part of my life.After completing my post graduate degree in Recreation Therapy, I went on to work as an Event and Lifestyle Director in Retirement Residences. Seniors sure love their events, so that is ultimately when I started to realize, “Hey! I’m really good at this!”. My dream of planning and designing weddings began. I am a sucker for romance! I completed my certificate for Wedding Coordination and began working alongside some amazing vendors in the industry and networking. Last season (2021), I met Amanda with Sea and Silk Events and I worked as Amanda’s assistant to start off. I finally felt “This is what I am meant to do!”.
I love a moody romantic boho wedding vibe. I want your wedding to be memorable, fun and stress free! I want your day to be everything you want, so building trust is essential. My goal is to make you comfortable leaving it in my hands. I am at my best when I am inspired, so learning about a couple and their dream wedding is important to me.
Lover of events, art, golf, baking, and of course wine. I am a sucker for true crime but you can also catch me watching Rupaul’s Drag Race with a glass of Cab Sauv any night.
- I am a painter that loves music, dancing, and singing (I have even sung at a few of my friends weddings!).
- I play recreational sports with friends and take dance classes!
- I want to own a pet pig someday.
- I am SO ready to get out travelling again!
Prior to graduating from university with a Commerce degree, my initial thought was that I was going to pursue a career in human resources. At the time, however, I was working part-time at a fine dining restaurant here in Ottawa. Once graduated, the restaurant offered me their “Event Coordinator” position, and with how much fun I was already having working in the hospitality industry, I just could not turn down the opportunity. During my time in this position, I had the opportunity to plan numerous different types of events, including weddings. I fell even more in love with the industry, as I thought it
was such a cool thing that my job was literally to plan occasions for people to come together with food, drinks, friends and family. When planning a wedding, it really is so rewarding being able to see all of the hard work from everyone involved, come together on that one special day. Although I ended up leaving the industry for a few years, I really started to miss it. I realized, that hospitality and event planning is something I’m very passionate about and something that I want to be doing. I am so beyond thrilled to
now be a part of Sea and Silk Events with Amanda and the rest of the team!
My design style is minimal but elegant. I also love a pop of colour, and am so glad that we’ll be seeing more of this trend in 2023!
Dance, yoga, self-development books, my dog Buddy, and coffee!
- Like Amanda, I also LOVE Taylor Swift and never get tired of blasting any of her songs on repeat.
- I am passionate about wellness and helping others, and currently run an Instagram account dedicated to supporting those who are attempting to quit or reduce their alcohol intake.
- I’m planning my first trip to Europe for April 2023 and am SO excited!
