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

The planning team more excited about your wedding than you are!

Stephen and Dave's rustic winery wedding was full of so much joy and many last minute pivots! Using a colour palette of navy, burgundy, black and gold, we designed two event spaces to stay within event restrictions for their 120 guest count. Endless wine, great food, bingo and drag queens = best day ever!

your dream team

Hiring a wedding planner, is no easy task but rest assured your day is in trusted hands.

Michelle + Marvin

"HIRE SHE! I had Kathlene as my coordinator but she meant SO MUCH MORE. She went above and beyond answering all my emails and texts ever since we met in February. She had plans A-Z (and probably even lower case a-z).

We had so many changes and uncertainties due to Covid but she had answers for all my questions and concerns and made the whole intense and stressful process super stress-free. She is extremely organized and had everything colour coordinated. My bridesmaids and parents were in awe during our rehearsal just watching SHE Team taking the lead."

Mike + Conor

"The team at Sweetheart Events delivered every step of the way. Stephanie always had great energy, a keen eye for details, and fresh ideas when we were stuck....They were incredibly organized and paid attention to little details we didn't even think about to make sure everything went perfectly...She was a big part of making our wedding a success."

Kristine + Zia

"Beth was easy to communicate with at all times, and was always overflowing with positivity and creative solutions to tricky problems - like the time when we had to plan an ENTIRE wedding from scratch 3 weeks before the wedding date due to our original venue closing indefinitely!! Despite this chaos, Beth really worked to ensure my now-husband and I were calm and enjoying the process, and we really appreciated that thoughtfulness. Also, wedding planning (read: spending) can get out of hand really quick - and Beth is very practical in terms of what’s actually necessary to plan a fun & beautiful wedding that does not compromise the ‘wow’ factor in any way to achieve your vision for the day."

Carolyn + Jeremy

"Our day was less of a show, more of an experience. Our guests commented on how everything felt less pomp and proper, as some would for a wedding, but they really connected with our emotions, joy, and the space (goal accomplished).

Sweetheart Events allowed us to be ourselves, and focus on each moment instead of the details and the timeline."

Jenny + Mike

"Having Shawna from Sweetheart Events be part of our wedding was everything we could have hoped for and more! We will never forget lining up for the ceremony and her giving us so much energy and a little pep talk for each of us before we walked down the aisle. It is so special to have someone who cares so much about your happiness and who has been so involved in your day stand by your side moments before your final journey on the way to say “I do”."

We've Got Answers!

Got a question?

Once you know we're the planning company for you, you'll receive an invoice for 50% non- refundable retainer. The remaining balance owing will be one month prior to the wedding day. Assistant labour and travel fees will be charged after the wedding day. 

What is the payment plan?

While we hope we don't rewind back to 2020, we will work with you to make this postponement/cancellation easier for you. All payments are non-refundable and we will postpone for an additional fee.  Happy to discuss this further during your consultation.

What is your COVID policy?

As planners we are a diverse group, each with our own experience, style and personalities. 

When inquiring please let us know if you have a favourite and we will confirm their availability for you.

Can I choose the planner I want to work with?

Check out one of our popular Instagram Reels where we break down the cost of a wedding in Vancouver. Spoiler alert, it's close to $65,000. 


What is the average cost of a wedding in Vancouver?

While our True to You package involves design support and ongoing management, we often team up with a decor company for our rental order to execute your vision. Please note, dependant on your final design, we may enlist a decorator for more intricate details. 

If I book the True to You package do I need to hire a decorator?

Great question! It's a common 'blurred' area that confuses couples so we broke it down HERE

I have a venue coordinator, do I need a wedding coordinator?

We would love to work with you! We offer 90 minute guidance meetings where we answer all your questions and assist you with any wedding planning issues you might be experiencing. Our rate is $250.

You're out of our budget. How can we still work with you?

Yes! Many of our couples that choose to work with Stephanie have hired her to officiate as well. In that case, you will receive a second lead planner on the day to assist so your ceremony moments are fully executed and looked after.

I want Stephanie to officiate and plan. Is this possible?

Let's change the idea that wedding planning has to be hard, time consuming and way over budget.
