Co-founders Julia and Samantha have come together to form RISE Event Planning on the basis of common values and shared goals. They have a focus on innovating within the event planning space through their eye for design and creativity. Through RISE’s event management process, they will lead you every step of the way. This can include venue management, event styling, food and beverage, entertainment, AV, transportation, set-up, takedown, on-site management, and more. Samantha and Julia bring a high-level of professionalism to establish a collaborative and creative working environment. Their ability to RISE to the occasion will ensure a flawless event from start to finish.


Samantha is RISE’s creative wiz who never misses a detail. Samantha has a strong passion for all things food and beverage as she feels these are a crucial and important part in bringing people together. Ultimately her ability to create and design beautiful and elegant atmospheres led her to co-found RISE. When Samantha is not event planning, you can find this foodie at one of the hottest restaurants in Toronto.


Julia is the creative wiz behind RISE’s brand, bringing her background in public and media relations to the table. Her ability to see the big picture while adding an edgy and creative flair to the ordinary and mundane is what led her to co-found RISE. When Julia is not event planning, you can catch her at one of her favourite artist's concerts, or catching the latest flick to hit the box office.
