The Specialists

Meet Kiley, Owner & Lead Planner

Hi there, I’m Kiley! I’m a fun loving bronde (brunette & blonde) who loves travelling, my family & friends and meeting new people! I’m a country girl at heart, but love being in new cities!

Fun Facts About Me:

I have travelled to over 20 countries; most recently was French Polynesia!
I already have my wedding planned; only thing missing – a man to marry 😉
I’m a born and raised country girl who knows how to use power tools,
I love kids and cannot wait to have my own one day
I may be the clumsiest person in the world and i’m not afraid to admit it (but don’t worry, I’m careful when I’m working)! 

From the time I could talk, my parents knew that I had liked to be in charge; dreaming up new things in my playroom, telling my brother what to do & organizing numerous events throughout my school year! I have a degree in Human Resources and an Diploma in Event Management. I have been planning wedding & events for over 12 years and can’t imagine doing anything else.

You could say my style is classic, romantic but unique. I love when clients come to me with fun design ideas, but I also love the classics about weddings! From the very first time we meet, until we say goodbye at the end of your event or wedding, I strive to make it a fun & stressless process.

When I opened Opportunity Knocks Events in 2015, I could have never imagined it being what it is today! I’ve gained a great understanding of the wedding & event industry and can’t wait to share it with you! I feel very lucky to be able to use my creativity to plan the perfect events.

I look forward to meeting with you and turning your dreams into a reality!

Meet Janet, Assistant Planner

Hi there, I’m Janet! I’m originally from Newfoundland but have lived in Ottawa for over 20 years now! Events have been part of my live for over 15 years and I am so excited to be a part of the Opportunity Knocks Events team!

Fun Facts About Me:

I LOVE to craft especially with my Cricut! I will gladly make anything for your wedding!
I still have my Newfy accent!
I have no kids but lots of nieces & nephews
Kiley & I have the same cars just different colors
I have lots of funny stories that will make you laugh on the stressful parts of your day!

While I’m not working events I am volunteer coordinator at a hospice in Kemptville. Kiley & I met years ago when I was working with Make-A-Wish. We instantly clicked & haven’t looked back! I’m the logistics queen of the team & will keep you on track! I can’t wait to celebrate you!
