About my   Why

"Why do you get up in the morning? Why does your organization exist? Your Why is the purpose, cause or belief that inspires you to do what you do." - Simon Sinek


Wedding planning is WHAT I do.

My experience in luxury hospitality and events planning defines HOW I do it.

But  Why am I doing that ?

And the answer couldn’t be simpler.


It’s to bring joy and happiness to people and make their wedding day unforgettable,

 so that the world be filled with more love and became a better place.


For me, a wedding is not a ‘party’ or an ‘event’ you go to. I see it as a praise to love. And it’s not only the couple’s love. It’s the love of a proud father as he walks his daughter down the aisle, the love of a caring mother seeing her boy becoming a family head. It is the love of the families and friends who had travelled across oceans and continents just to be there. Your closest people are joined together for this one time, to celebrate your commitment to each other. And since it’s just that one day, it deserves to be as special as it can get.  It is the memories and emotions you will relive, on replay, your whole lives.

So  How  do you know I’m the man for the job ?

After a Masters’ degree in Finance and International Business, and years of experience in Luxury Hospitality on French Riviera, I spent last 4 years in Events Management at the most mythical and extraordinary Relais & Chateaux that is La Chèvre d’Or. After more than 70 weddings and 500 events planned over that time, I decided it was time to move on. Which is how 1000 TIMES YES was born.


What  can you expect of me ?

I do not accept anything less than perfect ! And this is what a couple deserves when they trust anybody with their wedding. I will be by your side every step of the way, making sure everything turns out as you imagined it. And I will plan your wedding as if it was my daughter’s (her name is Sabrina by the way, she is 7) . 

With  love,  Ecaterina
