5 star reviews





If your wedding doesn't reflect who you are, what are you doing?

Ready to meet for that coffee date? Let's do it!


You love the idea of saying I DO with the jaw-dropping backdrops of the West Coast.

You want that incredible wedding but don’t want the planning to takeover your life.

You want to be involved in the planning decisions but want to streamline the process so you’re choosing the right fit for the best value.

You throw away the thought of a fully traditional wedding to add in your own unique traditions that reflect you both.

You believe in celebrating your big day rather than working it.

You believe in planning a marriage more beautiful than your wedding.



1. You're hoping for a planning bestie in this process. Trust me, I will be MORE excited about your wedding than you. 
2. You aim to showcase the unparalleled charm of the West Coast! I thrive on orchestrating weddings that push logistical boundaries.
3. Your vision extends beyond the wedding day—let's create a marriage that's even more beautiful.
4. You want to embrace breaking tradition. Choose only the ones that are meaningful to you.
5. Efficiency, meticulous spreadsheets, and planning sessions over a glass of wine catered to organizational, Type A personalities.

Meet Stephanie

Owner, Planner + Officiant

I'm the mushy-gushy, bubbly, organization-obsessed Wedding Planner. I believe in strong relationships and building that foundation during the planning process. I enjoy helping time-strapped couples plan, simplify and personalize their once-in-a-lifetime moment, so it turns out to be everything they ever hoped it would be (and then some.) I truly believe in a marriage more beautiful than your wedding and am happy to continue the celebration of your marriage as your officiant.

 2. My idea of a perfect night out would begin at a dimly lit cocktail bar, a fantastic meal & end laughing at a comedy show. 
 3. Pilates is truly a lifestyle. 
 4. I plan events all over the world & love making the most of getting to explore new places! One of my favourite recent events was working on Expo2020 in Dubai!
 5. I love going on adventures & feel the most inspired when spending time in nature, exploring a new city or creating something new. 
 6. A quirk about me is that I am 10 minutes early for everything. If I’m on time - I’m actually late.

With a diverse background in wedding and event production, I thrive in a fast paced environment love a well organized spreadsheet and live for turning your unique vision into a reality. 

I love getting to know you, learn about your life together & find out all the creative ways to infuse your event with all those things that make you who you are. I’m not going to encourage you to follow the latest trends, or stay true to out-dated traditions, but rather create those memories that you and all your favourite people will relive for years to come. 

I always say that your wedding should be the best party you’ll ever throw - but it’s so much more then that & I cannot wait to get started!
