Hi, I’m Ariette!
And I’m the founder of Ariette Hung Events!
I am a big-hearted creative and organizational nerd dedicated to bringing people’s wedding and event visions to fruition. Since my youth, I had a knack for organizational tasks and creative projects. I love planning and design! I am that “planner friend” amongst friend groups that rallies people together for dinners, parties, and trips. A few years ago, peers suggested that I should try event planning as a side hustle, so I did! In 2017, I got coordination certified with the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada and began this venture 🙂
Ariette Hung Events, while named after me (partially because self-branding feels more personal, and secondly, because it was hard finding a business name that wasn’t already taken), every event that our company takes on is a collaborative effort: I have a wonderful team and we work together with our clients so that we’re all on the same page to have the best experience possible.
We hope to celebrate with you soon!
Planning, Patisseries & Peace
Our team (yours truly, my biz partner, Cherry, and a couple of assistant coordinators) works together to provide wedding coordination, patisserie catering, and design support services that aim to create an easy planning and peace of mind experience for clients. Organization and styling is our bread and butter, and we’re happy to work with you on creative DIYs as well. So, if you’re beginning to plan your wedding or special event and you need extra hands to help? We’re the go-to girls for the job.
Meet The Team
Outside of this hustle, we are all everyday girls. We enjoy travel, delicious cuisine (we love Thai, Italian, and Japanese food), boba, and books. We all initially met in university and bonded over our mutual values and interests, and now, we’re planning pals! Check out the slides below for our individual biographies to learn more about our team members.
Ariette Hung, Lead Planner
Meet Ariette, our founder and lead planner! With a knack for planning and organizing, Ariette went from hobbyist to side hustler in event planning in a few short years. Above all, what's most important to her is helping and serving people. Outside of event planning, Ariette is studying a Master's of Counselling and intends to pursue a full-time vocation caring for people in need of support.
What sets our coordination company apart from others is that we have a professional baker vendor on our team. We work exclusively with the talented Cherry Tsui, GBC Chef School alumni and independent baker to provide bespoke wedding cakes and patisserie treats to our clients and event guests. Check out our catering page to learn more and see her gallery here!
Why should you work with us?
We are an all-female team of friends and collaborators in creative operations. We love a good party, and we know how to host one throughout the planning stage, execution, styling, and personalized touches. We are foodies, and we will only deliver our clients the best. We are detail-oriented, creative, and always down for DIY! With a background in events, hospitality, and community services, our team members understand how to work with different budgets and needs. We get it — weddings can be expensive and overwhelming to plan, especially for busy people – but don’t fret, that’s why we’re here to help you save time and stress!
