I first met Cynthia Martyn when I hired her to be my wedding planner in 2006. As I worked with her on my wedding details, I learned that she was the director of the Toronto branch of Ladies Who Launch, a business networking group for women. This was around the time I was thinking of leaving my job and starting my own business, and I was inspired by Cynthia. It’s because of her that I joined Ladies Who Launch, which was (and continues to be) so helpful for me.
Cynthia never rests on her laurels. As if building a wildly successful event planning business wasn’t enough, she recently opened Sash and Bustle – a bridal boutique selling gorgeous gowns from hard-to-find designers. Cynthia has impeccable taste and design savvy – I often read her blog and find it inspiring for my own design work.
