Hi there! We're Candice and MJ

We met five years ago while completing our Education degrees at Saint Mary’s University.  As two broke college students, we had this crazy dream of starting an event planning business together while walking through a Chapters. Fast forward those five years and with the world starting to open up, we figured now is as good a time as ever to make our dreams a reality! We have over 15 years experience between the two of us in different event coordination ranging from charity events, baby showers and birthday parties, to weddings and large scale stampede breakfasts.  We are both former teachers and decided we could put our organization and planning skills to even more use in planning the perfect day for our clients that allows for a stress-free experience.



Hey I’m Candice and I am so excited to finally be launching this business with my best friend! I’ve had a passion for event planning for quite some time and have over 10 years of experience. I have planned a multitude of events including charity galas, weddings, baby and bridal showers, gender reveals and more! I am a true believer in “happily ever after” and am so excited to help peoples dreams come true!

Speaking of dreams, I knew once I had my daughter, launching this business was a dream come true. I’m able to spend so much time my little girl and plan amazing events! I wanted to build something that I could one day pass on to her, or even do with her! I love everything DIY and cant wait to help our amazing clients plan the day they’ve always wanted!


As one of the co-founders of Peonies and Lace, I bring experience in wedding planning and coordination, stampede breakfasts and all things DIY. I am an avid outdoorsman and I love making and creating things. My DIY skills have come in handy more times than not when it comes to the event planning world and it also allows us to make your day a little more personal because if you want it, there’s a good chance I can make it! When I’m not home planning your fabulous event, you’ll normally find me in the mountains (and if your event is in the mountains, well then we just became best friends). I’m so excited to be starting this new adventure with my best friend and I hope together, we can make your dream a reality!
