Meet the JBW Team: Suzanne Dargis

Suzanne started as a fabulous intern at JBW and she is now working as both an Office Assistant and Assistant Coordinator for the 2013 season. Her fashion background has given Suzanne a keen eye for design…and we all love having a Makeup Artist on staff!

+  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +

Edmonton Wedding PlannersQuick – give us your best Tweetography (tell us about yourself in 140 characters or less)!

Makeup Artist, Stylist, Fashion Guru Extraordinaire. Loves travel, weddings & coffee. Passionate about life and living it to the fullest.

What drew you into the world of wedding coordination?

The joy of making one day special and dedicated to a couple and their love is a big part of what drew me into the world of wedding coordination. Bringing everything together for the couple and seeing them enjoy their day with guests makes me enjoy it even more!

Who or what inspires you?

From an interesting pattern, a previous era or beautiful flower – many different things inspire me. I like to pull my inspiration from many different aspects of life, always trying new things.

What is your favourite venue in Edmonton?

The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald would have to be my favourite venue in Edmonton. I love buildings that have a story and history. It’s a beautiful backdrop for any wedding! Plus it is very castle-like and who doesn’t want to feel like a princess on their wedding day?!

What is your favourite wedding moment?

One of my favorite wedding moments is during the speeches when the happy couple takes a moment to thank each other and to talk about how much they appreciate one another. It always gives me tears seeing them look so happy and in love.

Another moment I have come to really like is the new trend of the ‘first look’ before the ceremony! To capture the reaction of the bride and groom as they see each other on their wedding day for the first time is so magical.

What are your top 3 strengths?

  1. Personable-I love getting to know people!
  2. Attention to Detail- I love adding original and personable touches!
  3. Creative- I love trying new things, being imaginative and always having fun!   .

.
Who would you want to play you in a movie?

I would want Audrey Hepburn to play me in a movie. She was a fashion icon, humanitarian and great actress. I admire her humor, style and life.
