ITM Events Wins Best Wedding Planner 2016 in South Eastern Ontario

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – May 16, 2016 – ITM Events takes home the award for Best Wedding Planner at the South Eastern Ontario Wedding Awards held in Kingston on May 2, 2016.

Finalists and guests attended an exclusive awards gala at the Italo-Canadian Club in Kingston on Monday May 2, 2016. Along with Guest of Honour Randy Fenoli of “Say Yes to the Dress”, “Randy to the Rescue” and author of “It’s All About the Dress”, who travelled from Florida to present the awards and share his inspirational story of success, they were treated to a wonderful 3 course meal and awards ceremony.

Six expert judges considered over 300 applicants that had been nominated by a client or wedding professional to narrow down the 30 wedding professional finalists that met all criteria in the 14 categories. The South Eastern Ontario Awards were created by Jen Fitzpatrick of Serendipity Studios in Kingston as a fresh way to showcase wedding professionals in the South Eastern Ontario region.

Julia O’Grady, ITM Events President and Founder, says “We certainly don’t do the work we do in hopes to win an award however winning is certainly a great way to be recognized for the hard work and commitment we dedicate to each of our clients.” Since 2010 O’Grady and her team have provided services to clients in Perth, Almonte, Westport, Kingston, the Thousand Islands, Ottawa and North Grenville along with international clients who required the expertise of a local event planner.

In the words of one of their clients from the fall of 2015 “Initially it was difficult to hand over control of something we had worked so hard on, but we are glad we did! We can’t imagine now how we would have ever enjoyed it otherwise. Reflecting back on our reception we agree that hiring ITM was one of the best decisions we made in the whole process. Thank you for allowing us to live in the moment during our celebration and focus on sharing laughs, dances, and hugs with all of our family and friends. – Melanie & Jonathan” this exemplifies the passion they have for the work they do.
