    WLA made my vision come to life

    Wendy and her team did a fantastic job of setting up my entire wedding on the day of. I spent months compiling and organizing my inventory of decorations (as an interior designer this is something I wanted to take on myself). We had a few meetings leading up to the day where she meticulously went over every detail with me. She was on time, flexible when I needed to extend the setup period slightly and even went so far as to run out and grab some last minute candles I had missed. Thank you so much to the WLA team for truly taking the stress out of my wedding day. I highly recommend this vendor!

    Great working with Wendy

    We hired Wendy to help plan our wedding which we started 1.5 years prior to the wedding. The experience was great as she would keep us organized, be the first point of communication with a lot of vendors and made sure we could bounce ideas off of her. We were in constant communication and whenever we had any questions, we would very easily be able to get in touch so she can look into things for us. There were a few unforeseen hiccups on our wedding day but Wendy was able to solution all of those without us even knowing which was great. Thank you for making the day run so smoothly!

    WLA Events's reply:

    Hi Jeffery and S! Thank you so much for your kind words! I am so thankful to have been part of your wedding planning journey and having had the chance to meet you both! I'm looking forward to seeing how you'll grow together in the coming years and know we'll keep connected in the future. All the best to you both!

Meet the team

Wendy La
Founder and Principal Planner

Hello! So nice to meet you here!

I’m a wife, mother of two, passionate baker, an event planner, and I’m on the journey to live more sustainably.

I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to do what I love and call it my career: event management with eco-friendly solutions. Planning events with sustainable efforts is something I’m learning about and it excites me that there are now so many options to implement earth-friendly choices in our events and celebrations.

William Shakespeare coined the phrase, “All the world’s a stage”, which happens to be one of my favourite quotes and something that deeply resonates with me. It’s made me understand my purpose--my mark on this stage--which is to leave the world in a much cleaner, brighter, and healthier state than it was when I entered. I want my children, and my children’s children to reap the benefits we sow today.

In the past 15 years, I have planned almost 200 weddings ranging from intimate gatherings, to large-scale celebrations, DIY and budget-friendly weddings, as well as chic and elegant affairs. My experience working in boutique hotels and managing one of a kind venue spaces provide me with the knowledge of how events run behind the scenes, which allows for a much more smooth and well-executed wedding.

I love every aspect of the event planning process and I can’t wait to make your vision an eco-friendly reality!
