Meet the Team

Sea and Silk – Rosielle and Co – Amanda McGrath Headshot

Amanda

Owner and Lead Planner

Amanda

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.

My Husband - a true support in my life and my biggest cheerleader.

Fun Facts
  1. I love a good glass of wine with a delicious meal.
  2. I am automatically happier when near the ocean or water.
  3. 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.
  4. I am sucker for a good AD Home Tour or Vogue 73 Questions
  5. Bare feet over shoes, always.

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.

Fantasy football, hockey, beer, board games, our puppy Frodo, and camping
