Wedding Specialists Q&A | Spotlight: Aileen


For over a year, Aileen has played an integral role on One King West’s team of dedicated Wedding Specialists. She makes a lasting impression on everyone she meets, but especially her couples due to her candour, her bright and welcoming smile, as well as her relatable charm. The brides and grooms who have worked closely with Aileen have attributed the ease of their planning to her ability to anticipate their needs before they’re even aware of them.

 

Quick Q&A:

What drew you to the wedding industry?

I was working in hospitality events when a girlfriend of mine was getting married in Prague and asked me to be her wedding coordinator. As I was running through the cobblestone streets of Prague, from the ceremony to the reception, I knew I belonged in the field.

What do you find most rewarding about your role as a Wedding Specialist?

Bonding with my couples and seeing their joy and happiness as they say, “I do,” on the big day.

From your first meeting with the engaged couple to the day after the wedding, what’s your favourite moment and why?

The food tasting – the couple has had upwards of 6 months to plan their wedding and now the final details all come together with my key role – choosing the menu. They are usually overwhelmed and excited for the big day to arrive after months of planning and decision-making. This is the perfect time to relax, enjoy some wine and Chef Sevilla’s delicious menu.

What attracts couples to One King West?

The grand sweeping arches, the cheeky history of the building and of course, those chandeliers!

 

Lightning Round…

Celebrity wedding you’d want to attend: Kate Perry & Orlando Bloom or JLo and A-Rod?

JLo & A-Rod’s because the dance floor would be wicked to join!

Kate or Meghan?

Kate

Jeans or dress?

Dress

‘The Wedding Planner’ or ‘Bridesmaids’?

The Wedding Planner… “Those who can’t do, teach. Those who can’t wed, plan!” 😉

Brad or George?

George

Paris or London?

I’ve had the opportunity to visit both cities and as much as I adore London, Paris and its galleries hold my heart. Musée Gustave Moreau, Musée Rodin… I could get lost.

Prosecco or wine?

I’m more of a Scotch girl. Neat.

The 1 thing you’d bring with you to a deserted island?

A friend!

Most relatable meme

“If you think a grown woman is going to watch a corny teen Netflix Rom-Com Movie about a girl and some love letters, then you’re absolutely right. I love you, Peter Kavinsky.”
