"Maurizio and David were fantastic, talented and a pleasure to work with. We came to them with specific design ideas for our wedding and they guided us through all the décor decisions. They were on top of every aspect on the big day and kept us calm and informed. They did the entire decor very elegantly including the fairytale ceremony room, stunning reception ballroom, cocktail reception room, entrances, sweethearts table and many more. They also worked seamlessly with our florist to bring our vision of the table centerpieces and the cocktail reception décor to life. Maurizio and David managed the smallest detail with care and professionalism from the right size and angle of our customized gobo light to the amount of pearls in each tiny vase. Choosing Debut Event Design was the best decision we made."

"We had the privilege of having Debut decorate or venue on our wedding day. Maurizio and David were there from the beginning, asking questions about what we wanted, offering their professional opinions right up to the day. Both the church and the reception venue (church hall) needed A LOT of work. Maurizio and David took on the challenge without any hesitation and created such a beautiful celebration for us. They were such professionals. We couldn’t stop smiling. It was more than we could imagine!! Our guests were walking around taking pictures of the reception tables and of course the stunning Rose Wall which became the backdrop for everyone’s photos. I am convinced they set the mood for the night, including getting our dance floor going! We didn’t have to worry about anything because they took care of every little detail for us.. There little extra touches made it all perfect. Thank you, thank you for such a beautiful, special and memorable night."

"Anita and I are so privileged to have Maurizio and David in our family, but that is not why we are giving Debut Event Design a glowing testimonial.

Through the years Maurizio and David have given a lot of people a lot more than they could ever hope to get for their budget whatever it may be. The Uniqueness about Maurizio and David and their loyal band of Debut Event Design Staff is that they treat everyone they work for like family.

For some people it's all about making money with Debut Event Design the difference is they want you the client to experience your Special Event whatever it may be with a WOW when you walk in.

Maurizio and David's attention to detail is second to none and it is not the same old same old your event will have it's own signature look and feel and everyone that attends will feel the same.

I hope you all get to experience the same level of WOW we got to experience when we walked into our Special Day Event."

"I can't thank you enough for doing such an AMAZING job on our wedding decor!  When we walked into the venue I couldn't believe my eyes.  It looked like a totally different place!  You were both so great to work with and from our initial meeting to the final outcome, you really delivered.  In fact you went above and beyond on every level.  Like when you noticed that the servers were putting pop bottles on the table rather than wine, you made the call to have them fix that.  You ensured that all the candles were lit and the arrangements were just perfect.  And when Joe and I danced our first dance you created a special area in the middle of the room, among our guests, for us to dance.  My favourite part of that moment is when you dimmed the lights and the sparkle ball started spinning.  I felt like we were dancing under the stars.  You are both golden!  You're originals, innovators, one of a kind.  We are blessed to have you in our lives and appreciate you so very much!  We love you!"

"Choosing someone to make our dream wedding a reality was a hard choice, until I contacted Debut Event Design and meet Maurizio & David. From the moment we meet, I felt like we were old friends.They went above and beyond amazing during the entire process. Maurizio and David were funny, creative & attentive. Our vision was executed and them some, when I walked into the reception room, that I had only ever seen before in my dreams, I was literally brought to tears, I had never seen a room look more beautiful! At that very moment, Maurizio and David became more like family, rather then old friends. Four months later my friends and family are still gushing about my stunning wedding, and I have Debut to thank for that."

Yours truly,

One very happy bride!

"I have had the pleasure of working with David and Maurizio of Debut Event Design for many years now. They are talented, innovative designers who are passionate about creating unique events for their clients. They begin the process by carefully listening to the ideas, dreams and wishes of my clients and then, they bring those desires together to create events beyond expectations. Throughout the planning process they work tirelessly to ensure no detail is over looked, always with the goal that each of their events is a true refection of their clients. On the event day they always demonstrate team work, helping others with carrying items, adjusting florals or some times adding a few extra decor items that they know will be a wonderful added surprise for my clients. They are truly gifted at what they do and I trust them explicitly.

Thank you for all that you do. Love you both so much! xoxo"

"What can we say, other than the fact that we LOVE working with David and Maurizio from Debut Event Design! David and Maurizio listen to what the client wants, and are honest in their budget assessment. They don’t try and give a client something they don’t want, but listen to what their vision is and then create it. They’re both outrageously talented, and so good at what they do. They’re always on time and there’s never any stress at a venue site – or at least none that the client sees! Anyone that we have ever referred to them always thanks us profusely afterwards. David and Maurizio are consistently at the top of their game, and we absolutely adore working with them. And the highest praise of all – they make us smile and laugh. Big love to Debut Event Design!"

"David Light and Maurizio Peta of Debut Event Design were asked by Culinary Team British Columbia to theme and design their Cold Food Table Display to be entered in the VKD World Culinary Olympics in Germany in October 2008.

During months of preparation, they competently worked with chefs and management to develop a design which predominantly showed off the variety of cold foods being prepared while capturing the attention of the judges and viewing public. The “Alice in Wonderland” theme won accolades from around the world and helped the team to win a Gold Medal in the Regional Team Competition.

Debut Event Design then assisted the team again at the World Culinary Olympics in October 2012 and the Culinaire Mondial Competition held in Switzerland in November 2013. The team was awarded silver medals and, again, received very high standings in both events.

David and Maurizio are a huge pleasure to work with. They are excellent “team members” and are able to formulate a deep understanding of the customer’s – in this case - the chefs’, needs. They are efficient and extremely hard working often staying up overnight in order to get the job done. They are very professional in everything that they do while still remaining highly personable and fun to be around. Their sense of design and artistry, their dedication and ability to meet tight deadlines and their generosity of spirit is to be highly commended.

Team BC love them dearly!"
