Born and raised in Manila, Philippines and a graduate of Integrated Marketing Communications, planning and organizing events and celebrations have always been my passion. Whether it's for family, for friends, or for clients, I am always the go-to person to plan their events. Starting when I was 16 years old, I planned events while juggling my academic responsibilities; I'd curate the events at night while everyone was asleep. Planning events never felt like work, and thus I knew I had found my vocation in life. Right after graduation, I got my first job as a Corporate Accounts Specialist for one of the most sought-after companies in Manila. Even though doing sales outside the Metro ensured a busy schedule, I reserved my weekends for events. While I was working for a publishing company as a Trade Marketing Manager in 2011, one of my coworkers-turned-friend asked me to plan her wedding out of Manila, in Tagaytay -- a two-hour drive away from the Metro. This was the start of my big break. After that wedding in Tagaytay, event clients never stopped coming. I finally realized that I should be doing events full time. For more than 8 years now, I have planned 3-5 events a month -- be it a corporate one, a wedding, a baby shower, a bachelorette or a birthday party. Thank you, Lord the blessings never stopped!
They say that the world of event planning and management is one of the most stressful jobs in the world: coordinating with the venues, the photographers, the videographers, and all other vendors in synchrony while meeting client expectations and timelines is no easy feat! As true as this may be, I will never stop being an event and wedding planner because I can never trade the feeling of satisfaction and happiness, I derive from clients who express their gratitude for a job well done. I can never say goodbye to a vocation that makes people happy and makes me feel that I am part of something big. Event planning is and will always be my first love, and I cannot wait to plan your next event and make it a memorable one that you will talk about for years!
