Anita DiPaolo

QC Event School Tutor

Event & Wedding Planner, Owner Grazie Gifts

Anita has always loved weddings. Once she made the decision to become a certified event and wedding planner, she never looked back. Now with over 9 years of experience in the wedding industry, she thrives on the challenge of creating a proposal within a budget, and coordinating entire themed events starting from the simplest inspiration, such as a color or a cherished object. In addition to being an event and wedding planner, Anita has launched a bomboniere and favors company, Grazie Gifts, which has been nominated as Supplier of the Year at the Ottawa Wedding Awards.
As a QC Tutor, Anita loves to witness her students’ creativity and planning skills grow as they progress through the course and begin their businesses.

“Embrace the course. Treat each assignment as a client walking into your office. Allow yourself the time to gain experience in the field, build your portfolio, and make connections with others in the industry. A successful business takes time and experience.”
