  • "Kristina, came in on short notice to build our events business. Upon starting up she has developed our events process from quotation through to execution with excellent results and great feedback. I feel that the Beer Academy Events business is set-up for future success based on the foundation building that Kristina has been able to put in place over the last year. Specifically, Kristina has led the development of our events package, preferred cater agreements, and our process and procedures." - Joel Toguri, Head of Finance, Six Pints Specialty Beer Company

  • “Our wedding day would not have been complete without Kristina, she ensured that we stayed on point from the ceremony to the reception – and everything in between. Her professionalism and attention to detail really shone through the whole day. But be weary, instead of guests complementing on how beautiful the bride looked, they will be asking – how do I book your wedding planner?” - Kristina Blodgett, Bride, Nicholson-Blodgett Wedding
  • "Not Your Average Party ensured that the wedding we dreamed of went off without a hitch.  We wanted a "non-typical" wedding and searched to find vendors who could make this happen.  Kristina was always a step ahead, ensuring our Toronto loft reception ran smoothly.  Looking back, we wouldn't change a thing!" - Nancy Dale Grimmond, Bride, Dale-Grimmond Wedding
