Meet Our Team (1)
My training in coordinating began in 1993 in the retail industry. After moving back to Canada from Italy at the end of 2002, I wasn’t sure what to do with myself as the opportunities that I had in Europe were not available for me here in BC. Vancouver was getting ready at the time for the 2010 Winter Olympics and my family suggested doing what I do best and that is coordinating events. I graduated with honors from BCIT’s Marketing & Event Planning program. This is where I was introduced to Wedding Planning. I fell in love instantly! I have an Art and Art History background and decided to combine my training and education, taking them to a whole new level and in 2007, La Gioia Events was born. My company name means joyfulness in Italian, which is truly how I feel when I plan an event.
I believe that it is important to do what you love. I draw inspirations from everywhere and everyone. I’m always looking for new ideas and am always wanting to try something new and event planning lets me do that. What I love about my job is that it doesn’t feel like a job. I love assisting people in creating beautiful memories and watching their dreams come true. It is so rewarding when at the end of the night my Brides give me a big hug and tell me that their wedding was even more than what they dreamed it would be. I treat every event as if it were my own and every client as if they were my family.
There’s a quote from one of my favorite movies...
