KRISTA JANE OLYNYK

WPICC | Lead Planner & Creative Designer

Your trusted wedding day
freak-out interventionist.

It’s not all sequins, peonies and champagne all the time! There’s a lot of thought and preparation involved in executing the best days of your life. Working so closely on such a memorable day for you – and your family – is a big honour.

KJ and Co. is the perfect combination of my creative, fashion and décor-loving side and the business-minded marketing graduate who loves spreadsheets, lists, and long walks through the Container Store. Bold and bright blooms excite me as much as fresh Post-It notes and colour coded planning schedules.

I live for the challenge of sourcing details and professionals to fit both you and your fiancée’s personalities, as well as managing a cohesive theme and balanced budget. Whether you’re looking for a modern, elegant, or refined rustic design, my eclectic style and design expertise will craft something timeless and tailored to you.

When I'm not balancing budgets, designing tablescapes or meeting with clients and vendors, I'm typically relaxing at home with my husband and our sweet baby Hannah. My fave Friday nights are spent cooking up some comfort food and catching a Fixer Upper marathon. 

Party Credentials

You could say it runs in the family. My love of design was passed down from my interior and event designer mom. We daydreamed for years about running a business together, however I chose to take the plunge solo in 2012. 

Trusted by couples and wedding-industry professionals, I now have over 50 weddings and events in my portfolio since KJ and Co. began. Along the way I've been featured on Style Me Pretty, WedLuxe, Today’s Bride, Elle Magazine, and more.

Clients appreciate my honest, practical and collaborative approach, rating me with 5-star reviews and Couples’ Choice Awards on Wedding Wire, as well as the Hamilton Spectator Readers’ Choice award in 2017, 2016, 2015 and 2014.

 


Testimonials

Krista of KJ and Co. was the guiding hand and emotional rock I needed to get through the planning process. I was overwhelmed by the sheer amount of planning needed to have the wedding at my family's farm, and turned to Krista for help. She took my vague ideas and turned them into my dream wedding. Always conscious of our budget and our design aesthetic, Krista made our big day into absolute perfection. The day went perfectly under Krista's watchful eye, with a calm professionalism that made it easy for me to be calm and enjoy the day!
