Highly Recommend!! 10/10

Very professional, always at our disposal to address our concerns, & to mediate & contact vendors, we would highly recommend Rio & RYGE. It was truly a pleasure to have Rio guide us along with all the wedding details. From rehearsal, introducing and getting to know the bride and groom’s family to the venue set up the night before and after ceremony. She fit in like part of our family 10/10 We couldn’t have pulled it all together without RYGE!! Thank you.

Hello, hello!

I'm Rio, the proud owner of Raise Your Glass Events. With over 9 years of experience in the wedding and events industry, I bring a wealth of knowledge and passion to every celebration I have the honour of being a part of.

My journey in the industry began back in high school when I discovered my love for creating unforgettable moments. From there, I delved into various fields within the industry, exploring everything from design and decor to food service and coordination. Along the way, I even pursued my passion for storytelling and attended film school, which has given me a unique perspective on the way photographers work – a valuable asset when it comes to capturing those precious moments on your special day.

After gaining invaluable experience working in different roles, I knew it was time to take the leap and carve out my own path. That's when Raise Your Glass Events was born. My mission? To help couples like you bring their dream weddings to life, with creativity, dedication, and a touch of magic.
