Team Bio: Bonnie Lo
It sometimes (see: usually) takes a village to put together an event and we believe that all our clients deserve to know the people behind the magic!
In the next couple of weeks, we will be featuring one of our superstar team members, and let you in on a little behind the scenes knowledge.
Today, we interview Bonnie Lo, our newest Senior Production Manager for the Envision Floral Studio, as well as Junior Event Specialist for Envision Weddings and Events.
After completing the 2016 Envision Weddings Winter/Spring internship, Bonnie wanted to continue serving clients from an event management capacity, and was promoted to the above roles due to her attention to detail, amazing creativity and most of all, her positive, infectious demeanor!
What was your most memorable planning experience during your time with Envision?
Hands down it would be our awesome couple, Jessica and Atal. Their wedding went so well and just working with them from beginning to end was my most memorable planning experience. [Sidenote: Jessica and Atal hosted a 500 guest, 3 day Indian affair, which Bonnie helped to plan and execute within 6 months]
What's your favourite unique wedding detail that you've witnessed or designed?
I really like little details that show off the couples personality and interests. Although, I get the pleasure of speaking and working with the couple firsthand, seeing their personal details on the wedding day always put a smile on my face.
What has been the most challenging aspect of the business so far?
I find that no matter how much planning or how organized you are, details and decisions will change at any time. This is when you draw in on your strengths, experiences, and team to make the changes work. In the end, the effort and work make it all worth the sweat and late nights.
What's your favourite colour palette?
I love all colour palettes, but if I had to choose I really enjoy the yellows, greens and burgundies right now.
What do you do during your downtime?
I really like sports and games in particularly volleyball. But any activity involving friends and family will do.
What is the one quirky fact that nobody knows about you?
I am kind of like Jacob Two Two in a way where I check things twice or more just in case I forget something - so I have a ritual where I pat down myself before leaving any place to make sure things are with me. Also, I hiccup a lot.
Bonnie is a graduate of Seneca's Event Management - Event and Exhibit Design program, and she holds a Bachelors of Arts degree in Architecture. She will be spending the 2016/2017 season overseeing all our creative productions and some day-of coordination contracts.
