About The Bride
Eva, now 44, was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario. Her parents emigrated from Eastern Europe – her mother from Hungary and her father from Croatia. She credits her strong work ethic to this immigrant background and it has also given her the ability to relate to people of all cultural backgrounds. She can also speak English, Hungarian, Croatian, and communicates in French.
After studies in business, she had a successful career in international business as a project manager and process engineer. While leading a project in East Africa to organize the relief aid, she realized that she was more intrigued by human needs than simply achieving business objectives.
Shortly after immigrating to the US in 2009 from the United Kingdom, she followed her heart and decided to leave her 15 year career to pursue happiness with her soulmate.
Whether you decide to make this into a vacation, or can join us for the weekend or even just the day, we look forward to sharing this special time with you.
Eva has two beautiful children that reside in London, Ontario with their father, step-mother and two step siblings.

Gabrielle Lila Grzeskiewicz: Gabbie (or “Snickey” as she is known to her Dad) was born on December 26, 1990, and life on earth has never been the same since. She lives in Northridge, California where she attends California State University and works at California Pizza Kitchen. She will graduate in 2014, so it will be a big year all the way around for us! Gabbie is not only beautiful on the outside, she is charming, intelligent, caring and very wise beyond her years. We have enjoyed following her progress in life so far, and we are excited to see what the future holds for her.
Nastassia Kaye Grzeskiewicz: Tasha (or “Toshie” as she is known to close friends and family) was born on January 9, 1994, and any excitement we thought we had with Gabbie was doubled instantly. A graduate of Bellus Academy, she lives in Rancho Bernardo, California, where she works at bareMinerals as a make-up artist. She is very talented and has already landed a few successful “gigs,” so she is also working on developing her own free-lance make-up and beauty business. Look for her soon on www.beautybyTasha.com. We are proud to say that she is the Official Make-up Artist for the Eva-n-Joe Wedding. Like her sister, Tasha is naturally beautiful, and she is creative, intuitive, and very sensitive. Talking to Tasha is like you are talking to your best friend. It is so much fun to see her passion in make-up artistry grow, and we can’t wait to see what great things lie ahead for her.
