Where your vision comes to life.

My name is Patricia Szelestei. I am from Budapest, Hungary.
I have always been interested in event planning ever since I can remember as a kid. I always loved helping my mom organize any family gatherings or birthday parties for friends and family.

In 2012 one of my best friends asked me to organize an engagement party for him and his Fiancé - two years later I was part of their wedding planning team.
I have planned and helped create many events as favors in the past, but I have realized that I want to use what I have learnt over the years and become a professional event planner.
I have been working in the entertainment industry as a performer for the past 10 years – holding workshops, performing on cruise ships, festivals and most commonly for corporate events. Although I wasn’t on the organizing side of the business, I was able to gain a lot of experience over the years.
I have learnt what to do and what not to do during the planning process of an event, however each event presents its own set of challenges.
Three of my biggest strengths as an event planner are:
1.) Very well organized
2.) Fast and efficient problem solving skills
3.) Creativity, which I am able to pull from all aspects surrounding me.

With the experience and character traits I have obtained, I definitely make it my number one priority to offer the best service to all my clients, giving them a peace of mind leading up to the event and ensuring their vision comes to life.
