    Amazing team!!

    Katrina and her team are absolutely amazing! At the very beginning of our wedding planning process, we hesitated about getting a wedding planner to help us, because we didn鈥檛 know if we could justify the extra expense in our wedding budget. After just 1 call with Katrina, however, we were sold on the idea and never looked back! Katrina was amazing to have as a guide and lead throughout our planning process. She is extremely well organized, professional, on the ball, well connected with different vendors, very kind, and I can go on and on. As the months leading up to our wedding turned into weeks and then into days, we were relieved to have her and her team of experts help coordinate everything into the most perfect and worry free day. It was amazing not having to think of anything else on our wedding day except for enjoying it and having fun with our guests. Everything was flawless and we have Deka events to thank for that. We recommend Katrina and her team 100%!! Thank you ladies!!

    Got Hitched Without a Hitch!

    I was thoroughly impressed with Katt's impeccable work on the day of my wedding. Upon meeting with her and seeing her professionalism, skill, and warmth, any nervousness I felt melted away. She handled every planning element with poise and great attention to detail.

    Our guests are still telling us how much they enjoyed our wedding, including the transitions and special moments that Katt flawlessly executed. We are so grateful that Katt was there for us on our day and would recommend Deka Events 1000 times over!

    Thank you for making our wedding look and feel so perfect!

    My husband and I had a fantastic experience working with Katrina and her team at Deka Events. We hired Deka Events for both design/decor conceptualization and month-of coordination for our wedding.

    First of all, it was so much fun to work with Katrina. She is very warm and easy-going and she had so many great ideas and suggestions for us both in terms of decor and how we could organize our wedding. Katrina is also very professional, organized and had a lot of experience working with our venue. She made us feel like we were in great hands leading up to the wedding and on the big day.

    For the design, Katrina understood the sort of rustic, outdoorsy yet elegant look my husband and I wanted and helped us bring it all together by helping us pick out our rentals, working with our florist and our venue, and giving me creative suggestions for things I wanted to make myself. I had a really fun session with Katrina and the florist to brainstorm and figure out how we wanted to decorate the reception room and ceremony site and I was so excited about all the ideas they proposed. And on our wedding day, the venue looked absolutely stunning! My husband and I were blown away. We could not have been more thrilled with the look. It felt magical!!

    My husband and I were also extremely happy to have Katrina and the Deka team coordinate our wedding. Leading up to the wedding, Katrina helped us figure out what was important to us and how we wanted our day to go. It was great to have her establish all the logistics, coordinate all the different vendors and think of all the little details. As we got closer to the day, it was also really nice to have Katrina answer any of our questions and make us feel like she had everything under control. It definitely helped take away a lot of the stress of planning a big wedding!

    And on the day of, Katrina and her team did an incredible job ensuring everything went smoothly despite a rainy start to the day. Even though we had a plan B, Katrina knew how much my husband and I wanted to get married outside and so she told us she would wait until the last possible minute before asking us to make a call and then work quickly with her team, the florist and the venue to set up either the indoor or outdoor option. Luckily, about an hour and a half before our ceremony, the weather cleared up, the sun came out and we were able to have a beautiful ceremony outdoors. Just that in itself made our day!

    The rest of the day also felt perfect to us. We didn't have to worry about a thing and were able to truly enjoy our celebration. We know Katrina and her team did an amazing job in the background coordinating all the different parts of the wedding: the cocktail, the dinner, the dances, the speeches and even a cool sparkler activity that Katrina had suggested to us. The sparklers looked awesome in pictures and the guests loved it! We had such a blast at our wedding and we know our guests had a blast as well!

    Thank you Katrina and Deka Events for making our day so wonderful!

    We love Deka! Thank you Katt!!!

    Hiring Deka Events and Katrina Scheller was the single best choice we made as part of planning our summer 2018 wedding in Montreal. We had an overwhelmingly positive experience and heartily recommend working with them. Katrina (Katt) demonstrated unique gifts to help us finalize the planning and coordinate our multi-faceted, multi-ethnic wedding. Her professional skill, charm, and creativity helped us have the gorgeous wedding of our dreams.

    In our first interactions, Katt asked a lot of questions, got a feel for our approach, and indulged us when we needed to vent. We quickly felt a trust that kept improving, which was particularly important because we planned our wedding in Montreal while living in Africa! Katt helped us look at the deals we were making with various vendors, and found areas where we could trim costs based on our numbers and needs. She prioritized beauty and quality, with a keen eye for value. By the end, she came up with so many wonderful decor ideas and creative practical solutions, all while helping us save literally thousands of dollars. For her own part, her invoicing was transparent, superbly communicated, and competitive.

    On the day of, we saw all of the small creative choices Katt helped us make - and some she just improvised herself - to make the ceremony, cocktail and reception areas of our venue just amazing. She helped us think through the flow of events in advance, and her expert coordination on the day made it so seamless that we enjoyed every minute. So many of our guests told us afterward that they鈥檇 never been to a wedding that flowed so well, that kept them fed, watered, entertained and up on the dance floor. Katt was a big part of this. She communicated amazingly with the venue on our behalf, including to handle some thorny situations ahead of the event, and coordinated so well with the DJ, our wedding party, and our families.

    Beyond her formal role, Katt and her team just seemed to be enjoying themselves, which made them also joys to be around. We would work again with Katt in a heartbeat if the opportunity arose for another event.

    - So much love, Thomas & Zahida

    I don't even know where to begin. Katrina, founder and principle planner of Deka Events was beyond wonderful to work with and exceeded every expectation. We met a few months before our big day and from then on she helped execute it as if it were her own while providing so much insight and clarity. Katt met with us one Sunday afternoon and in a few short hours she was able to learn enough about us and our goals in order to create the perfect wedding day timeline, which then became a document that I referred to daily. Having someone so strong, organized and creative in your corner is a must. Katt always had our best interest at heart and paid attention to the any details that we may have over looked. I can honestly say that thanks to Deka Events, I was a stress free Bride. I was able to fully enjoy my special day without a single worry that something would go wrong, and if it did, I knew that Katrina would handle it. It was a day that was not only planned to perfection, but one that was flawlessly executed and so beautiful decorated. Thank you, Katt!

    I knew as soon as I got engaged that I needed someone to help guide me along the way to help me find the best venue, photographer, videographer, DJ... I mean, where was I supposed to start?

    Katrina and her team have been there every time I needed them. I'm still only months into my engagement but it makes everything so much easier when you have someone to guide you along the way with planning, timelines, vendors, budgeting and negotiating! Visiting venues with Katrina made everything so much easier. Since I had no idea what I was doing or what questions to ask, I was able to step back, absorb the venue and really get an impression of what my wedding would be like at each place. Katrina knew what questions to ask, and that took so much stress away from me.

    Although we are still in the beginning process of planning our future wedding, I have attended a wedding that Deka Events coordinated and it was honestly the best wedding I've ever been to. So much attention to detail. The day went on without a single hitch. There was no question that I wanted Katrina and her team to help me with my wedding. She is one of the kindest and most professional people I've had the pleasure or working with.

    To my fianc茅 and I, there was never an issue of IF we would hire a wedding planner, but rather how much help we would need along the way. I highly recommend Deka Events not just for the wedding day, but even just to help you get started... I honestly don't think I would have found my perfect venue without her and she was able to help negotiate exactly what we wanted with the venue at the price-point we were comfortable with. I'm so excited to start planning the decor and all the rest of the details with her next!

    I'm not even sure where to begin but I'll start by saying THANK YOU to Kat and her team. The last few months leading up to my wedding were stressful and I could not have done it without the help of Deka Events. From the initial planning, to the setup and even post wedding cleanup, Deka Events were there from start to finish. I was blown away with how my vision was turned into a reality and I especially appreciated all the finer details and thought that was put into our wedding. I highly recommend Deka Events to everyone I know! Absolutely a pleasure to work with.

    From the moment my husband and I met with Katrina, we knew we were in capable great hands. She was warm, inviting, organized and down to earth. She showed us all this and much more throughout the entire planning experience. Katrina went above and beyond on her planning,organization, and attention to detail. The suppliers she recommended us for calligraphy and flowers were outstanding and just as much a pleasure to work with. On our big day, I never had one worry or stress as Katrina and her amazing Deka events team took care of everything and let us and our guests enjoy the amazing evening. Everything went off without a hitch. Katrina clearly loves what she does, and is very invested in making sure your day is exactly how you imagine it to be. We cannot thank her enough for making the whole experience perfect!!! J&J

    The first time I met Katrina I was so blown away by her amazing energy I knew right away I wanted to work with her and for her to coordinate my wedding. From the moment I met her she was nothing short of exceptional. She absolutely loves what she does and is so devoted to her clients. She helped me plan my wedding from A to Z and was in contact with all my suppliers throughout the entire process. I wanted a stress free wedding day for myself and my family and that is exactly what I had. My wedding day was absolutely perfect. Katrina has an amazing team of girls working with her and their number one priority is to make sure your day is exceptional and it absolutely was. Thank you Katrina and the Deka event team for making my dream wedding a reality!! I love you all so much!! XxX

For over 15 years I've been fascinated with events of every nature. As a young teenage entrepreneur I started out by volunteering and organizing non-profit events. I pursued my career in events by enrolling into an Event Systems & Management Certification and then furtheedr my education by interning in the corporate world. It was important to me to truly live and breathe in all the logistical and design expertise that I could before deciding to make the major leap!

In 2013, after organzining events of all sizes, complexity and nature, I decided to start my own events business, Deka Events.

Since then, I've planned, coordinated, assisted in many more ways than one to over 300 weddings. We've developed an incredible team of planners, coordinators and stylists in order to offer our wedding services on a larger scale and to a larger demand for our services.

We look forward to working with you in achieving your vision!
