The Story of Mint Events
We are childhood best friends turned business partners. We met in elementary school and although we went our separate ways, we found each other again in high school and have been inseparable since. After one of our members got engaged in 2018, we noticed the lack of wedding planners that would understand the multicultural nuances of mixing the traditional with modern customs. As second generation immigrants, we felt that we could fill this gap by becoming the Event Planners we needed. We look forward to helping you plan any event from inception to completion ensuring it’s organically beautiful, within budget, easy and simply…fun!
Come Meet Mint!
Moudane, Ilham, N‘ Tricia
Welcome! I’m Moudane, I also go by Mouds! I’m the extrovert of the trio and also the only one without a business degree. I graduated from the University of Ottawa with a Bachelors of Health Sciences and I am currently pursuing my Masters in Public Health. What is a health nerd doing in the wedding business you ask? This is another avenue I am able to provide a helping hand and being a part of your happily ever after. My favourite aspect of the job is seeing a satisfied Client’s face when we are able to bring their vision to life. In my free time, I can be found watching documentaries or listening to my favourite true crime podcasts. I love meeting new people and I look forward to meeting you and making all your wedding dreams come true.
Hi friends, Ilham here! I usually use being a Wedding Planner as a fun fact when introducing myself to new people but I’m guessing you already know that since you’re here! I am a CPA by day, graduated from the University of Ottawa with a Bachelors of Commerce with an Accounting Specialization. Yes that means numbers don’t scare me and I can help you with all your wedding budget needs! I’m a hopeless romantic and will most likely cry when you tie the knot! I used to spend hours on Youtube watching proposals and gushing over strangers’ love stories (my husband still makes fun of me for that). I look forward to meeting you and hearing all about (I mean crying over) your love story!
Hello there! I’m Tricia. From a young age, I’ve always been obsessed with weddings and dreamed of becoming a wedding planner. I graduated from the University of Ottawa with a Bachelors of Commerce with specialization in Human Resources. But always knew that I would love to help couples bring their dreams to life. My favourite aspect of event planning is getting to know our clients on a deeper level and curating an experience that truly reflects their personality. On my time off, I can be found trying out new restaurants (especially desserts) and working out to offset my poor eating decisions!
