Sonya D’Silva – Senior Associate Planner

“I’m a foodie, an animal lover, travel-obsessed, and a hopeless romantic. Weddings are my weakness… and so are tacos!”

I strongly believe in seeing the good in people and in situations. Although I may be blending into the background on your wedding day (most likely tearing up during your ceremony), it’s important to know that I put my heart and soul into every event and wedding that I’m a part of. I understand the importance of helping you on your big day. My goal is to be your source of comfort, please know that I want your day to be everything that you’ve imagined it to be.

As an Event Management alumnus of Algonquin College, I’ve worked on almost every kind of event that Ottawa has to offer, including but not limited to: weddings, large scale philanthropies, charity fundraisers, trade shows and government/corporate meetings. I’ve been a part of the Ottawa event industry for almost a decade and a part of Kennedy Event Planning for four of those years. It’s safe to assume that I live and breathe all things pretty and all things wedding!

Fun Facts:

  • I’m obsessed with polka dots.
  • I was born and raised in Mumbai, India and moved to Canada as a teenager.
  • Dogs and food can improve my mood almost instantly.
  • I’m a competitive hip hop dancer.
  • I’d prefer a jar of Nutella over a box of chocolates any day!
