Amanda

Owner and Lead Planner

Amanda

Hey babe, I’m Amanda! I run the show here at Sea and Silk Events, and I’m so excited to help you plan your wedding! Wedding planning and designing is my absolute passion and I often find myself day-dreaming about my own job. Fashion and design are two things I have always been drawn to and I love using these as inspiration. I’m a graduate of Algonquin College’s Event Management Graduate Program, and started working in the wedding industry as a Special Events and Weddings Manager before founding Sea and Silk.

Journalling - it's brings so much positivity!

Carolyn

Wedding Assistant & Wedding Coordinator

Carolyn

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!”.

Design Style

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.

Loves

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.

Fun Facts
  1. I am a painter that loves music, dancing, and singing (I have even sung at a few of my friends weddings!).
  2. I play recreational sports with friends and take dance classes!
  3. I want to own a pet pig someday.
  4. I am SO ready to get out travelling again!

Wedding Assistant

Paula

After graduating from the Event Management program at Algonquin College and planning my elopement, I knew my heart belonged in the wedding industry! What I love most about weddings is that I can help you on such a memorable day in your life.

Design Style

I love unique looks that you wouldn’t think go well together yet they do! It warms my heart to know that I can take care of all of the little things so that you can enjoy your special day. I also love to see everything come together – the colours, textures, shapes, and floral pieces.

Loves

Florals (obsessed actually), long hikes with my dog, and camping.

Fun Facts
  1.  I have gone surfing on the East Coast and am dying to go back.
  2. My husband and I eloped this past year at Algonquin Park. Yup! We hiked up a trail and said “I do” over a canyon right before sunset.

Timothy

I studied Commerce and presently work a full time job while helping out with Sea and Silk Events. I am proud of Amanda and all she has accomplished and as her husband I want to support her in any way I can. Since I am not a wedding expert or designer I support her by doing the heavy lifting and managing our rentals.

Fun Facts
  1. I had no idea what our wedding was going to look like until I showed up.
  2. I love music and have over 500 records.
