event planner, wedding planner
If you can dream it, I can plan it!
Hi there, nice to meet you!
My name is Kirstie Hayden. I am 21 years old and I was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I am, by nature, a planner. I have experience planning everything from birthday parties to fashion shows to my own parents' wedding. I am known as the "go to girl" amongst family and friends for any event that needs to be planned. My creativity, organization and customer service skills are just a few things that set me apart from other event planners and are also what will bring your event to life right before your eyes. My approach to planning any event is for you to be stress free and happy. Your success is my success! Please feel free to view my profile to read about my personal experience in wedding and event planning!
My first event that I had a part in planning was in the seventh grade at my schools fashion show. Along with the directors of the fashion show, I co-planned everything from: advertising, music, clothing and designing, model recruitment, hair & makeup volunteers, practices, and everything in between. During the night of the show I worked the change rooms and backstage simultaneously. I was in charge of dressing my own two models and directing them as well as outfit changes for the other models. The show went off flawlessly and I was even given honorable mention from the models/directors and a standing ovation from the audience.
This experience led to me co-plan three more fashion shows, two musicals and a few extravagant birthday parties by the time I graduated high school.
The last and most successful event I planned was my parents' wedding. With both of them having full time jobs, they did not have the time to meet with wedding planners and plan out every detail like they had wanted to. Therefore, I decided to take it upon myself to help plan their wedding. I planned invitations, accommodations, catering, music, decorations, venues, transportation, and gown shopping/suit rentals. In the end I planned their wedding for 40% less than their expected budget and relatives are still talking about it to this day. The smiles on everyone's faces and the compliments that I received made me decide that day, "this is what I want to do with my life".
Though I have not planned any events outside of school or family, I feel very confident that I can provide you with excellent service for most events including:
