A love for weddings is what inspired Maria Chi to create Peppermint Weddings. Having worked in the corporate world from different fields, it has always been the creative and organizational aspects that thrilled her. Last 2012, unexpectedly, wedding design and involvement found her. When it did, she knew it was a perfect fit. Maria is a certified wedding coordinator through the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada and has received floral training from Preston Bailey Floral Design and the Canadian Institute of Floral Design. The Wedding Planner Magazine (WPM) sat down with Maria to learn more about the dynamic venture that ignites
her artistic passions.
Wedding Planner Magazine (WPM): How long have you been in business and how was Peppermint Weddings created?
Maria Chi (MC): Peppermint Weddings has been in business for almost two years. My career path has given me invaluable experience in many industries. When the road led me to the wedding industry, it awakened the dreamer inside of me. I knew it was the perfect fit for my creative, organization, and customer service skills. Feeling humbled and yet excited by my emotions, I courageously founded Peppermint Weddings – giving me a chance to start a new career by combing my passions and business experience.
WPM: What services does Peppermint Weddings offer the bride-to-be?
MC: Peppermint Weddings services include floral and event design. We love to work with every couple. Every wedding is special to us and we can work with any budget. For us to be part of that special celebration is both an honour and a privilege.
WPM: What makes the company unique from other wedding vendors?
MC: From the first contact we have with the couple, to the very end of the event day, we want to make sure that we take great care of them. We love to hear their love story. We enjoy the process of getting to know the couple better. Every effort is put in to ensure we meet our couples’ needs as we value the relationships that we create. We truly feel like their wedding is as meaningful to us as it is to them.
WPM: What are Peppermint Weddings service offerings?
MC: We customize quotes depending on the couple’s needs. We have designed starter packages so that our clients can easily build on it. They can add, change products or can keep it as it is. I think it’s very important that our clients know our starting pricing so they can also see if we fit their budget and needs.
WPM: How can we get in touch with Peppermint Weddings?
MC: I can be emailed directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can also call us at 647-774-3259. We are also booking consultations by appointment at our office located at 411 Confederation Pkwy, Unit 12-105, Concord, ON L4K 0A8. We understand how busy couples are so we also offer Skype and Face Time consultation.
WPM: Anything else you’d like to share with our readers?
MC: I can’t stress enough how every couple is different and special. I believe that they should have someone who can represent them creatively on their wedding day. The couple deserves to have a real and genuine connection with their chosen vendors.
