You don’t often catch the Sweetheart Events team working in a hotel ballroom but the JW Marriott Parq Hotel has us obsessed! You get both west coast vibes surrounded by nature and a luxury hotel wedding all in one! I mean, hello! Sign us up!
Today we’re sharing more from Jodi and Ryan’s wedding planned and executed by our fabulous wedding planner, Shawna.
Jodi and Ryan first met when they were both in a wedding party as Bridesmaid and Groomsman for a friend’s wedding. They started dating and a couple years later Ryan took Jodi to Seattle and proposed at a park over looking the city.
They quickly decided JW Marriott Parq Hotel in Vancouver would be the perfect venue to host their celebration. Not only does Ryan love casino nights with friends but they’re able to see the Park Level, where their ceremony would be held, from their very own patio at home. If you haven’t seen it yet, Parq has a beautiful rooftop park that lies amongst Vancouver’s city skyline and offers stunning views of the city and BC Place.
I was so excited about their classic black, white & gold wedding vision! Thank you to the amazing vendor team who helped bring their dream Casino Royale wedding vision to life! It was stunning!!!
“We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding planner than Shawna! She was there for us every step of the way. Anytime we had a question or needed something she replied back to us immediately. The wedding vendors she chose for us were perfect for our style. We would highly recommend Shawna from Sweetheart Events to anyone, she definitely made our wedding a dream come true!” – Jodi + Ryan

We couldn’t have been more thrilled with how every single part of our big day went! Shawna went above and beyond for us every step of the way. She made sure we had exactly what we were looking or hoping for during the planning process. She even managed to have our event planner at Parq upgrade our suite to one of the nicest in the hotel! We would very highly recommend Shawna to anybody who is planning a wedding, she made it so easy for us! Our day was absolutely perfect thanks to her and our amazing vendors!
It was so incredible working with Shawna and her team. As a photographer, it is soo important to have a well structured timeline and a day that is designed seamlessly, and wow, the SHE ladies blow it out of the park! From excellent communication, to colour coded spreadsheets, to executing the most dreamy wedding setup and having a whole lot of fun while doing it, I couldn’t recommend them enough, and can’t wait to work together again!!
Shawna did an amazing job helping not only the big day, but the many months leading up to it, to go so smooth! Her organization skills were so great, she covered every and last little detail. She truly cares and you can see it in all her actions. Dealing with multiple different personalities of many many people is never easy and she has such a finesse . No couple should ever think twice about hiring her, do it and save your own energy and stress! She is the best!
Hermoso … Te felicito
