Janis WPICC, DWC

Janis@BrocadeEvent.com

Janis is the owner and Principal Event Planner for Brocade Events.

In addition to being certified by The Wedding Planners Institute of Canada in Wedding Planning and Destination Wedding Planning, Janis has a diploma in Business Management from SAIT Polytechnic and has experience as a Manager in the corporate sector.

Janis has also been working with The Wedding Planners Institute of Canada for a few years, with her current role as an instructor for the Toronto area WPIC Certification classes where she contributes to creating a more professional wedding industry. 

She has had her work featured in Weddingbells and The Wedding Ring magazines, and has been interviewed and featured in articles by The Huffington Post, Toronto Star, and Wedding Trends Magazine.


Janis stays up to date on wedding trends, and continues to expand her knowledge and expertise by attending seminars, conferences, training courses, and networking with wedding and event industry experts,

 

She operates Brocade Events on a full time basis, and not as a hobby business or side project.  

She is the Mom to three little (busy) boys, a wine lover, book club member, kick-boxing fitness enthusiast, and has two Cornish Rex cats named Dobby and Kreature (inspired by Harry Potter of course). ​

Getting to know the couples and families she is working with throughout the planning process is the best part of her job, and hearing the words "We could not have done this without you" at the end of the night is what makes so honoured to have been a part of a couples journey.

Mallory WPICC

Mallory@BrocadeEvent.com

Mallory has worked in the special events industry for over nine years, including four years in wedding coordination, with experience in organizing cultural sporting events, dance productions and art showcases.

 

She has worked in various positions within the events industry allowing her to be knowledgeable in the many different components that come together for successful events.

She graduated with a Bachelor of Applied Arts degree in Media Studies and a Diploma in Creative Photography. It was actually photography through which she entered the wedding industry, having worked alongside many reputable planners. She then decided to learn more about the field of wedding coordination. She has since become certified by The Wedding Planners Institute of Canada and has coordinated multiple weddings with a wide range of cultural and religious backgrounds. Mallory attends wedding shows and networks with industry partners to continue learning about the industry and ever changing trends.

Saying goodbye to a couple on their wedding day is special to Mallory. When love has been celebrated and the couple is relaxed, happy and thankful, knowing that everything really had been taken care of on their special day is the best part of it all.​
