Alexandria Catherine Events is a wedding and social event planning company specializing in planning, event management and event design.

A background in archaeology and anthropology combined with training in events offer an unparalleled planning experience. Our understanding and appreciation for tradition, ceremony and detail allow us to offer more – it’s not just a day. The best events are built on experiences … this is what guests will remember for years to come. We’re doing more than celebrating an event, we are creating memories.

  • What do you love most about what you do? Honestly, there is nothing more touching than having a couple trust you as a professional to help with one of the biggest days of their lives. I feel so honored to work with each and every one of my couples, and love getting to know them in the process. I develop friendships with my clients and we often stay in touch long after the wedding day. It's wonderful having the opportunity to send a bride down the aisle and then see her on Facebook a couple of years later announcing her pregnancy. To be a part of those intimate moments and to celebrate them together is something I cherish.
  • What is your best advice to couples planning their wedding? Don't get lost in the details and forget what this is all about. YOU!
  • My favourite dance floor jam is... Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" gets me on the dance floor. Every. Single. Time.
  • In my spare time I love collecting... Postcards! Whenever I visit someplace new, I make sure to pick up a postcard to add to the collection. I keep them in a box and I suppose it's my "scrapbook" of sorts.
  • Where did your passion for what you do start? In the dirt. No, that's not a joke! My background is actually anthropology and archaeology and I vividly remember participating in archaeological digs and finding more of a connection to the objects than the process of the dig itself. The artifacts were more than history to me, they represented someone's life and even to think about it again now gives me chills. My imagination would go wild with daydreams about the people who owned those items and what they meant to them and it trickled down into wanting to get into the event industry. I used to find memories, and now I get to help people make them.
