Vendors We Love
Why do we love these people? Because they get it done and love what they do!
They are just as passionate about weddings as we are, and working with them makes our day (and yours) stress free.
One of the first questions we ask brides is, who is your planner? If they say they don’t have one, it’s a huge red flag for us. Why? Because we instantly know that the bride is not going to be relaxed on the day of her wedding. Being worried about the caterer arriving on your wedding day is no fun, and it’s no fun for us either. Simply put, spend the cash on a planner, and a good one at that. It really is the guarantee that your wedding will flow easily.
The next question we ask is who your photographer will be, because we want to know how your photos are going to look and who we are working with in the last hour before you walk down the aisle. There are many photographers who are gifted artists, but there are very few who are gifted artists who are skilled in communication and are also great with people! A photographer needs to get the shot, but they also need to know how to relate to everyone in order to get the shot.
Years ago, Marjie had a bride who ripped apart her wedding bouquet because there were small purple flowers in it. She hated purple, but did the florist know that? We’re not sure, but we do know that skilled wedding florists know how to create incredible beauty with colour and texture, and they should also know what to ask.
All of these vendors are amazing – they will make you laugh, share a glass of wine with you, and make your wedding spectacular. They are listed in no particular order, so take a look and find the one that suits you best.

Pacific West Coast/Photographers
I’m Anastasia. I take pictures. I started taking them because of the role they play in my life – remembering my mother, exploring the world, documenting my love story, welcoming my babies and celebrating their milestones. Now, I have the most incredible job of helping others do the same. I’ve had the honour of being published internationally and appearing on top-rated wedding blogs, but that’s not what keeps me going. It’s you! I’ve seen the impact photography can have on people’s lives – how it makes them engage, slow down, remember, honour and appreciate one another.My photo shoots are really just little celebrations.
Because it’s important. That is why I got into photography. Because I believe there is a need to capture life, in its purity, unplugged. I think documenting life’s milestone’s, adventures and sweet moments preserves those memories with a clarity that our minds sometimes can’t do on their own. Looking through my lens, you’ll see a fusion of photojournalism and fine art. To me, a good image is one that captures a true moment, one that you can look back on and still feel butterflies in your stomach, one that is timeless, one that makes you feel good for more than a minute. Great images are the ones that tell a story to everyone, even if the real story is only known to one.
