MADALENA OCCASIONS - A Unique Experience

My name is Catia Madalena Marques Frazão, and I am a talented individual in the Event Planning industry.

I am professional, friendly and organised and specialise in social events (weddings, birthdays, graduations, etc.) My aim is to create an amazing event tailored to your needs, working behind the scenes so that you can truly enjoy your event.

I see my clients as new friends made in the industry, and work hard to ensure that you are happy with the results. I also, upon request, create 3-Dimensional perspectives rendered to illustrate the space in which your event will take place.

This is very useful to those clients who cannot visualise how their event space will look.

_______________________________________________________________________________

Although Portuguese, I was born and raised in South Africa. This exposed me to various cultures and ways of life, which I feel allows me to be even more creative in planning.

I have been an artist since a very young age and specialised in drawing and painting in high school. (Pretoria High School for Girls, Gauteng, South Africa) After my final year, I attended Inscape Design College (Pretoria, Gauteng, South Africa) and studied Interior Design and Architecture for 2 years.

In January, 2011, I moved to the United States of America as an exchange student and took several Interior Architecture classes at Montgomery College, Maryland, USA.
I am very talented in Interior Design and Architecture, which I feel aids in my Event Planning and Management skills as well as my ability to render perspectives to help clients visualise what their event space will look like with the elements they choose before they spend their money on that certain element.

I am extremely creative, and alway push myself to be completely original, yet logic. I work with clients to custom every details to their likes. Ultimately, I want my clients to have a truly unique, and elegant experience, a Madalena experience.

I offer various packages, specifically compiled for social, private events.

Crystal Client Consultation

This is the first basic, yet absolutely necessary, step where I meet with you, my client, and we discuss the particulars. Here, I determine your goals and specific expectations of your event. We will brainstorm and discuss any options you have in mind, including suggestions for timelines, vendors and themes. We will meet in the comfort or your home (or any other preferred location) and I will go over any questions you have.

This is primarily for a client that doesn't know where to start from and is also perfect for a client that wants the guidance of a wedding / event planner without purchasing a package.

A consultation is $75.00 (Flat rate)
