Kassandra has been planning weddings and events since 2016. She began her career in the events industry as an intern from her Special Events Planning Program at George Brown College where she later graduated and worked her way up to a Lead Planner, and now a Co-Founder of Be Our Guest Events Inc. Her passion derives from her love for hosting friends and family all her life, and always ensuring everyone is well taken care of, comfortable and most importantly stress free. This allows her to really focus all of that passion on and for her clients to always ensure their special day is everything they've imagined and more. Her superpower when organizing events is her efficiency. She knows what needs to get done and is always the go to person to tackle any situation that stands in front of her clients. When Kassandra is not planning events, she’s outdoors spending time with loved ones, or at her cottage up North overlooking the water and relaxing with a glass of wine!

Get To Know Kassandra!

Favourite Cuisine..

Italiano. Nothing beats an Antipasto and all the carbs you can eat in one sitting!

Favourite Pizza Toppings..

The only topping that counts on my pizza is a fantastic hot oil. It's the perfect pairing with any topping.

Favourite TV Show..

Sons of Anarchy...It's all the emotions bundled into 7 seasons of perfection.

Favourite Beverage..

A Cold Stella, Glass of Red Wine, Brown Sugar Oat Shaken Espresso

How I Prefer to Spend My Sunday's..

Lazy Sunday's are the only option if I don't have an event or at my cottage up North.

Where I Spend The Most Money..

Amazon hands down is where I spend the most money...but it ties up next with gas because I need to drive to pick up half of my packages at a family members house, and can't make those trips without stopping at Starbucks.

(Everything happens in three's am I right?!)

Favourite Place In The World To Travel (To Date)..

Italy. Nothing beats the culture, and travelling across one of the oldest and most beautiful countries in the world... Not to mention, eating your way through each region and city is obviously the best part.

Favourite Cuisine..

Mexican. I can never say no to Mexican street corn and a margarita.

Favourite Pizza Toppings..

Anything that goes on a Diavola pizza.

Favourite TV Show..

Survivor .. hands down. I’ve watched every season and I still can’t get enough..

Favourite Beverage..

Shirley Temple, hold the cherry.

How I Prefer to Spend My Sunday's..

If I'm not at an event you’ll find me with family. Either spending the day around town with the kiddos and Joe, or having a big family dinner with everyone.

Where I Spend The Most Money..

Either in gas because I love passing time driving near and far just sharing car stories, singing along to the radio, or making plans for the future... OR Home Sense, because it always has exactly what I didn’t know I needed.

Favourite Place In The World To Travel (To Date)..

Thailand. Travelling from the north to the south, everywhere we stopped was magical. The culture sucks you right in and makes travelling across the globe completely worth it.
