About

We know there is no one size fits all when it comes to wedding planning. At Rad Occasions, we make it our mission to help couples create signature celebrations that feel like an authentic reflection of themselves. From the first meeting to the exchange of vows, and beyond, our team is committed to helping bring your special story to life in an event that will be fondly remembered by you two, your family and your friends.

Radhika Graham (She/Her)

Founder, Creative Director, and Lead Planner

Hello, my name is Radhika (Rad for short). I began working in the wedding industry almost a decade ago. After working just a handful of weddings, I knew this was the business for me. In 2015, I founded my own company and it’s been an amazing journey ever since. In just a few short years, my passion for making memorable wedding events has evolved into a full-service company that I now run with my team of five, including my husband, Rob. As a certified planner and a lifelong romantic, I pride myself on going the extra mile for the couples I work with – whether it’s folding 500+ paper cranes before a ceremony or running Olympic sprints in heels to save bouquets from stormy weather. Aside from planning weddings, I teach with the Wedding Planner's Institute of Canada and am getting over my fear of public speaking by speaking in public, of course!

Favourite Things: eating a delicious piece of wedding cake, beautifully written vows, & spending time as a family whether it be checking out the newest restaurant or strolling the Songhees Walkway

The Team

Rob (He/Him)

Event Day Assistant/ Spatial Engineer

Rob joined the team in 2017 and is affectionately known as ‘The Muscle’ as he can often be found lugging many of the heavier items on wedding days. He is also the brains behind any carefully drawn out floor plan whether it be at a hotel or a private property. He grew up on Denman Island with his parents, brother, and their family dog, Woof. He and Rad were married in 2019 in a wedding that literally took everyone by surprise.

Favourite Things: playing soccer, a delicious glass of whiskey, and dance parties in the living room with our little one

Amanda L. (She/Her)

Event Day Assistant

Amanda has worked in the service industry for many years and spent a season doing décor set up and take down for weddings. She thoroughly enjoyed her experience and upon returning to Victoria joined Rad Occasions in 2019. A social and out-going individual with an eye for detail, Amanda is excited to aid in making the couple’s vision a reality. When free from wedding assisting, Amanda works full time for a software company and is working towards her project management designation.

Favourite Things: taking walks in nature, enjoying a cold pint of craft beer, and reading a good book

Lindsay (She/Her)

Event Day Assistant

Lindsay is the newest member of our team and completed her WPIC certification in 2022. She is passionate about the small details and always keeping things running smoothly - qualities that have served her well in her management career in veterinary services. Outside of her existing career and her recent foray into weddings Lindsay keeps herself busy with singing in a choir, watching TV with Gravy the cat, and learning Hungarian.

Favourite Things: a perfectly golden grilled cheese, a new book with a mug of tea, making music, and baking
