About Us

Professional  •  Dedicated  •  Creative

I have a keen eye and a creative flair which will help you “think outside the box” if that is your desire. I take on as much, or as little responsibility as you wish, always keeping you in the forefront. You deserve to relax and be confident that your event will be spectacular and become an amazing memory.

I have built my reputation on quality, professional and highly personalized services. My rates are reasonable and industry comparable. I can help save you thousands of dollars with my services, by directing you to vendors who I know and trust.



Maxine Gacek

Winnipeg Wedding & Event Planner

I have been an event planner for many years and in 2010 I decided to become professionally certified with the WPIC (Wedding Planners Institute of Canada). I have been married for over 30 years (married young) and enjoy doing life with my husband and three children. Laughing is a daily ritual for me, as it seems I usually find humor wherever I go!!

I really enjoy gardening, design and singing as some of my hobbies, and curling up with a cup of coffee and a great book on a cold winter day. I enjoy Ralph Waldo Emerson’s poems and I am inspired by positive people and beautiful scenery. Each day is a gift and should be celebrated. Perhaps this is why I enjoy planning events so much. It is a privilege to meet new people and to become part of their experience. I will never take this for granted!

Love from Our Clients

“Hiring Maxine was the best investment! She was able to advocate to get a refund for the 1st dress purchased that would have put us out thousands. She assisted with dramatic family-which can save relationships!”

– Rachelle


“Maxine was incredible! I would go to her with a million ideas and she helped get them done. She took care of all my little details, and even provided advice when it came to choosing flowers, centrepieces and lighting (on a budget). She is a sweet lady with a huge heart – you will LOVE her!”

– Shawna & Pete


“Our wedding was exactly what we had envisioned and more! With the help of Maxine our fishing theme was bold, but still elegant. She took the time to really listen to what we wanted, and guided us through the many options and choices. She is helpful, fun, and quick to fix any last minute surprises. Thanks for all you did to make our wedding an amazing day!”

– Mandy & Dustin
