More about Karine
I moved overseas twice and planned the moves by myself. I personally took care of all my immigration paperwork when I was a student in the US, and more recently when I moved to Canada so I am categorically detail oriented as I did not want any errors on any of those documents. You can rest assured that I will double check everything during the planning process and on your wedding or event day to make sure that everything is according to your desires.
I learned to negotiate from a young age and care about getting you the wedding or event of your dreams so be confident that I will work hard to make your dream come true. I know what it is like to plan an important event, and I know how to deal with stressful situations if and when they arise.
I was dreaming of an American style wedding in Paris so I made my dream come true! Now I want to help couples design and coordinate their dream wedding anywhere around the world. I design, plan and coordinate weddings locally in Ontario and I also specialize in destination weddings to France. Who wouldn’t want to get married in a Chateau, a beautiful winery in the Bordeaux region? How about taking unforgettable pictures over the Montmartre Basilica? Maybe on a bridge over looking at the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum or its Gardens, the French Riviera to name a few breathtaking places in Paris and France.
As a French speaking wedding planner, I have knowledge of the country, love for French gastronomy and admiration for its heritage, I will lean over backwards (and trust me with certain French people, you have to be persistent) to make your special day as perfect as you imagine.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in marketing from France and completed a certificate in marketing from UCLA. Prior to launching Champagne and Macarons Events, I worked in different industries such as the travel industry, media monitoring and market research to name a few.
I decided to become a wedding planner in 2020 during the worldwide pandemic which gave me a better perspective on what I wanted to do since I had this idea in mind ever since I planned my own wedding. I am now an internationally certified wedding planner and destination wedding specialist through The Wedding Planners Institute of Canada which I am proud to be affiliated with.
Every wedding is unique and having planned my own wedding, I know all the struggles that couples should not be going through, but instead enjoy this life changing moment to its fullest.
