Megan Sawchuk, PhD
Megan is the owner and lead wedding planner of Megan Sawchuk Weddings.
Megan moved to Calgary after finishing her PhD – just ask her about plant veins! – at the University of Alberta, in Edmonton. While trying to find a job in a scientific field, she was volunteering with DanceSport Alberta, helping them organize their ballroom and latin dance competitions. She really loved being on the organizing side rather than on the competing side, and decided to pursue an Event Management Certificate from Mount Royal University. After completing her certificate, Megan decided to focus on weddings, mostly because she loved every moment of planning her own, and because weddings celebrate love, and nothing beats creating memories rooted in love. Megan brings her organization, management, and creative problem-solving skills from her PhD studies, along with her love of details to all of her wedding and event clients.
When planning weddings, Megan focuses on her clients, making sure that their day is what they want and reflects them as a couple while taking care of those pesky – but oh so important – details. She believes that since no two couples are identical, no two weddings should be! Therefore, she is always open to whatever her clients want to do. Megan also believes in creating moments within your wedding that will become etched as memories and that you will cherish forever.
