alaVida is a Montreal-based company specialized in life celebrations.

alaVida’s internal event coordinators are professional and practiced at sourcing the most exceptional venues and creating imaginative ideas to help you host a distinctive and tasteful Beautiful Goodbye event within your budget.

Planning life celebrations takes a special skill set because when death touches us emotions are fragile, families fragmented, and our busy lives don’t necessarily allow us the time to put together something special.


Who we are

Backed by 50-plus years of savoir-faire from its parent company
Kane & Fetterly funeral home, alaVida is
the new division co-owned and operated by the husband & wife team Bridget Fetterly and Paolo Bassi
