Lisa Grosso

Owner and Lead Wedding Designer

Lisa is the Owner and Manager at Mountain Bride and comes from a project management and event coordination background. After graduating from UBC in Kelowna with a Bachelor of Science, she started her career managing projects, organizing events, conferences and fundraisers. Seeing the skills cross over to weddings, Lisa planned her first wedding in 2005. She is certified by the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada (WPIC) and a proud member of the Calgary Bridal Alliance, organisations that raise the bar for wedding professionals.

Lisa says, "The day you get engaged is so exciting!! And I believe the wedding planning process should be fun and your wedding day one of the most wonderful, unforgettable days of your life. My best advice to you: Approach the entire event as a blank slate – I don’t believe in doing things because “it’s what you’re supposed to do”. We will help you make the day what YOU want it to be – there are no rules. Traditions are beautiful, wonderful things, but it’s figuring out which ones are important to you that give meaning to a wedding. A wedding doesn’t need to be what’s expected. It’s deciding what expectations you have and what represents your love.“
