A self-proclaimed hopeless romantic, Alessia loves a great love story and fairy tale endings. Making her an absolute sucker for a beautiful wedding! Wedding planning wasn’t what she set out to do when she enrolled in York University in 2003. As an undergraduate student studying History and Italian, Alessia had her heart set on teaching. After graduating in 2008, she ventured out to gain real work experience in fields from teaching to marketing and sales. Finally, she found her niche as an Educational Assistant, working with children with special needs and disabilities.
Daniela has been passionate for all things pretty from a very young age. She has always been fascinated with weddings. She remembers wrapping a blanket around her waist to mimic a train of a bridal gown as she welcomed her Barbie’s as her guests to her “wedding”. Daniela graduated from The Business School at Humber College with a diploma in Business Administration with a specialization in Marketing and then proceeded to graduate from York University with a degree in Italian Studies. During her years as a student she was fortunate enough to travel frequently for pleasure and for work as a supervisor in Italy where she toured hundreds of students around Rome, Florence and Venice. She also has worked in financial services and continues to do so today. Today, Daniela works in financial services, travels when she can, is up on her trends in the wedding/event industry and loves hosting dinner parties for her friends.
When Alessia began to plan her own wedding in 2011, she turned to Daniela, also one of her bridesmaids for guidance and help. Alessia had a clear vision of what she wanted, but with six months left to the big day she decided to seek the assistance of a wedding coordinator. She figured an extra set of eyes and ear couldn’t hurt! The wedding was everything and more!
The wedding had come and gone, the honeymoon was over and Alessia found herself missing the excitement of all the wedding plans.Together, Alessia and Daniela enrolled in the WPIC course to become certified planners. They ventured out on the journey to create aVd Events Inc. in hopes of creating unforgettable weddings, and infusing their love for romance and all things pretty to your special day!
