We know how important your wedding day is to you. With more than 8 years experience in the industry, we will deliver a creative and expertly planned day you will look back on as one of your best days yet – because you were busy laughing and enjoying your day, while we were working behind the scenes making sure every last detail is taken care of.
I just want to say how impressed we were with all the work you did for our daughters wedding. Your attention to detail is very appreciated. We heard many audible gasps when people saw the venue, as you made it sparkle and glow in a magical way. Thank you for your personal touches in creating their day. You are a very hard worker and you understood their subtle theme so well to help them incorporate it into their wedding day. We are still in awe of how you were able to coordinate the entire day by yourself, working diligently in the back ground to make the day run so smoothly.
We used White Orchid for their full service option since we were remote from Kelowna. One of our biggest concerns before hiring a planner was how we were going to meet with all the potential vendors. Shawna was with us every step of the way and we knew we had an expert by our side. Most notable was Shawna's ability to help in picking the vendors that provided a service that matched our vision, she made the vendor selection process extremely easy and stress fee. Also, we were very pleased with the strong relationships White Orchid has with vendors in Kelowna. They were all very excited to work with a client of Shawna's and all provided service that exceeded our expectations!!! Lastly, Shawna's ability to take care of every detail on the day-of allowed us to enjoy the day, live in the moment and have the wedding of our dreams.
The most important day of your life is not complete without selecting the perfect team of Vendors that will not only hear your vision but work tirelessly to execute it. We were relieved to meet Shawna Gray of the (W.O.W) team, we felt absolute confidence in their ability to do whatever it takes to ensure our day was executed perfectly. Couples often ask: "why hire a Wedding Planner? Aren’t they really expensive?" – the answer is simple. Hire a Wedding Planner so you can enjoy your day. The weeks leading up to our wedding were filled with numerous meetings with our entire Vendor team. From décor, flowers, Officiant, DJ and venue the decisions and interactions never seemed to cease. Shawna graciously guided us through each meeting and personally recapped our requirements and confirmed them with every vendor. No stone was left unturned and nothing was left to surprise.
When we decided to have a destination wedding in Kelowna, we knew we would need a wedding planner from beginning to end. After meeting with Shawna, Jessy and I knew she was exactly who we were looking for! You can tell that she is very passionate about her job. She gave excellent advice and suggestions throughout the planning process that made our day absolutely perfect. She responded promptly to all emails and was always available to talk on the phone when needed. We are thrilled with how smoothly our day went. We did not have to stress about anything and were able to enjoy every minute of it! Shawna is awesome!!
We have a Guest Post from a favourite Transportation company, Distinctly Kelowna Tours. As you plan your Okanagan Destination wedding, think about hosting a tour for your guests to get a real taste of the area. The opportunity to visit 5 wineries in an afternoon, is such a great way to WOW your guests.
Adore Magazine is an awesome, locally produced wedding magazine. Offering great insight into Okanagan wedding vendors, ideas and tips! We were asked to produce a Dramatic Wedding styled shoot using the Pantone color of the year MARSALA!!! I love this color. I feel it is so warm, loving and perfect for weddings. Red can sometimes be a hard palette to use for weddings, but this is awesome!!!
This wedding was. Awesome!!! From the moment we started planning this superhero themed Kelowna Wedding, I was so excited to work with Kimberly & Ryan. These two love Cosplay. And wanted it incorporated into their wedding day in a classy and elegant way.
