A beautiful sunset on a very warm summer day. What better place and time for a surprise picnic?


Venue Feature: Hart House Restaurant

June 10, 2020

Uniquely West Coast, Hart House has some of that old-world charm with a touch of idealistic romance. It’s tented, sits by a beautiful lake, and is surrounded by hundreds of tall lush trees and bushes. In the spring and summer, you’ll see lots of flowers in bloom along with little birds and squirrels trotting on their cute little feet (sort of like a scene in Bambi J)


As you are the Moon of his life, he shall be your Sun and Stars – Game of Thrones Wedding

June 4, 2020

Hi everyone! For Throwback Thursday, I wanted to share a very special wedding that I worked on with one of my favourite couples, Kimisha and Aja. They are the coolest people and I was incredibly happy to have had the honor of being their wedding day of coordinator. The wedding venue was the legendary UBC Boathouse, one of the most popular wedding sites in Vancouver and the lower mainland and it took place during Spring Break in March of last year. I’ll be writing a review about this venue in the next few weeks so keep a lookout when it gets posted.

Although what I am about to blog right now is not entirely related to wedding planning, it has been a popular request from many of my readers and I think it is the right time to dive into this topic!


Nature Inspired Wedding at UBC Rose Garden & Sage Bistro

January 26, 2019

This past fall, we had the pleasure of working with James and Eudorah for their wedding at the UBC Rose Garden and Sage Bistro. This venue is such a beauty and an unexpected surprise. The Rose Garden still blooms in early September and the mountain backdrop is an absolute view and backdrop for photos. Fortunately, the rain started to sprinkle as soon as the ceremony was complete...


12 Wedding Traditions You Want to Know About In Vancouver

December 6, 2018

As a Vancouver wedding planner for the last 7 years, I still get a good laugh when I tell my brides about the history and reasoning of each wedding tradition that we have today. The history of these wedding traditions are shocking to say the least! As I’m doing the research and writing this blog post, I can’t help but think to myself how ridiculous some of these traditions are! I’m glad we treat women fairly, don’t tear up their dress or kidnap them before their wedding.

"A Trusted Wedding Vendor in Vancouver"



Leslie was organized, efficient, worked with what we wanted, easy to communicate with, and so lovely to work with. I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to plan our wedding! She is super knowledgeable about all of the best deals and vendors in the area and was able to create our dream vision with our budget. She took a lot of things off our plate with handling the vendors and everything on the special day making it stress free. On top of taking on all of these responsibilities, she was always so quick to respond. Leslie is the best and we will miss working with her!

Mina and Dmitry


Leslie helped to ensure our wedding day was amazing. She is attentive, responsive, flexible, and always smiling. Working with her was a pleasure and we'd highly recommend working with her. My husband and I were able to just enjoy the day while she took care of all the details on the day of, guiding us with a smile and always showing her caring attitude. As the day passed by me as a blur, I remember Leslie always busy working to make sure the details were perfect. Very grateful to have found her and for the work and love she put into our wedding. Thanks Leslie!
