The inside scoop on Alyssa:

The best way to get to know the person you are working with is to ask them a few questions. Here is some inside info on who Alyssa is and why she does what she does:

1) Describe yourself in three words?

A: Clumsy, witty and focused

2) Where did you study event planning? A: I did a post graduate certificate in Event Management at Humber College Lakeshore Campus, but my degree is in Psychology and English.

3) What made you choose event planning as your career?

A: Since the age of 13 I have always worked in hospitality. I was serving tables and planning events from the young age of 15. At the age of 18, I planned my very first wedding. It still is so surreal that I had the opportunity to do that but I am beyond blessed to have done so because it helped me gain such a great understanding of the industry so early on. Now, years later I feel confident taking on whatever challenge is tossed my way.

So I guess my answer is aside from being in the industry for so long, I have such a passion for it. I always advise anyone I speak to to never settle for something they're just good at but to follow where their heart is; because if you don't have a passion for what you do you will never a) be happy nor b) succeed. It worked for me - I found something I'm equally good at and passionate about!

4) What is your favourite memory from an event you have planned? A: I think my favourite memory would also be synonymous with my most embarrassing one, that's for sure. My clients' wedding was hosted in a tent at their family farm. The majority of their décor was outdoor of course, hung beautifully in the trees etc. Anyone who knows me knows how much I hate creepy crawling things or getting myself dirty, and how absolutely terrified I am of heights.

At this time I was working alone so I took it upon myself to hang all of the tree décor myself (lighting and hand-crafted dream catchers). So picture this, little me climbing the tallest of trees suspending all of this décor, until a flying creepy crawler the size of my palm landed on my nose. I wobbled a bit until I tumbled down my ladder and into the dirt. My 3 most dreaded things all combined in one - heights, creepy bugs, and mud.. and no, in case you're wondering, no one saw this take place! (Thank the Lord!)

5) What is your favourite part about your job?

A: My favourite part about my job is observing and by observing I mean watching my clients on event day interacting with their loved ones. Seeing them happy and being a part of it provides me with a feeling I cannot even put into words. It's a beautiful thing.

6) What is a fun fact about yourself? A: I am obsessed with anything beach-related, I even own my own line of women's swimwear, AylaMor.
