Meet the Principal Planner behind A Stylish Event

Hello!  It’s been awhile since I’ve introduced myself and I thought this would be a great time for a re-intro!

My name is Ishita Kalia-Hayer, and I am the Principal Planner and Lead Designer for A Stylish Event.  What does this title mean?  Essentially I am the owner/CEO/Boss Babe of A Stylish Event and I have a keen eye for event design.

I started my company in 2014 when I was on maternity leave with my first born.  At this time, I was solely a wedding planner/coordinator and over the years I have evolved into planning and design.

I was born and raised in Vancouver, BC and graduated from York House School, from there I attended Carleton University in Ottawa where I obtained a Bachelors in Mass Communications.  After graduation I moved back to Vancouver and dabbled in broadcasting.  I realized quickly this was not the career path for me and moved on to a comfortable job within the Federal Government.

After a few years in the Government I was bored!!  I again realized a monotonous Government job did not suit my personality and my sister suggested I pursue a career in Event Planning.  Wait…what?  A career in Event Planning!  I had no idea there was such a thing!!  I started doing my research and enrolled in BCIT in their Events Marketing Program.  Upon receiving my certificate, I continued on with my job at the Government!

In 2010, I met my husband, and we started planning our New Years Eve wedding in 2011.  I hired the Creme de la Creme of Wedding Planners in Vancouver and watching them produce my wedding events gave me the urge to also pursue my passion in Events!

I started my company in 2014 and since then I have planned, executed, produced over 150 events, weddings, corporate events!  A Stylish Event has come a long way since 2014 and there are lots of great things yet to come! I will be utilizing this blog to share my experiences, provide advice, share some funny fictional and non-fictional stories, highlight wonderful vendors, spotlight some amazing couples and some.  I invite you all to come along the journey with A Stylish Event :)
