I have worked with Natalie on 5 + events both at Alo and in Niagara Wine Country. I do not say ‘yes’ to many buyouts because they can compromise the high standards I have for seamless hospitality. But I always know that when I work with Natalie, the event will well-executed and perfectly aligned with our brand. I look forward to more collaborations with the Alo Group in the future.
