As a Vancouver wedding photographer, I get to work alongside some of the best in the industry and have met and worked with some of the best Vancouver wedding planners and coordinators. Whether steering the ship the day of or guiding things for months, they’re often a godsend for overwhelmed couples. So I thought I’d give a shout out to a few of the top companies available for any of you on the hunt for help!
The team at Umbrella Events is a total delight to work with. They’ve got all the passion for handling those big imaginative ideas, and all the expertise to make them a reality – plus they’re considered one of the most trusted companies for planning LGBTQ+ events!
Since founding Memory Laine Events in 2014, Laine Ogilvie has been offering a kind and steady hand to brides all over the lower mainland! She’s since expanded her company to include Abby and Danielle, both fantastic wedding planners in their own right! I’ve had the pleasure of working with them multiple times and it’s always a joy to be a part of one of their events.
Carlee Cindric specializes in the cozy chic vibe with strong attention to detail. She offers day-of coordination and a la carte planning, for anyone who’s nailed down some aspects of their wedding but still needs a bit more guidance in certain areas.
Coming from a background in floristry before expanding into event management, Marlee has spent years building relationships with key vendors and venues so planning with clients can flourish. She offers floral services, cultivating client ideas to create a cohesive design, and half/full day coordination.
Maureen has a long and respected history in catering and event planning, and coordinates with a dedicated, professional eye. She likes to bring a sense of fun and fantasy to the weddings she plans, and has got that perfect balance between strategic planning and industry know-how.
The dynamic sister duo behind Must Be Love Events offers a variety of packages from full-service planning (their specialty) to timelines and to-do lists. They believe first and foremost in client engagement, so the end result is truly the stuff of dreams.
You know you’re in safe hands with these guys – their mantra “experience, creativity, dedication” says it all. They deliver on coordinating with meaning and intention and work with an unshakeable sense of heart and kindness.
Self-proclaimed as “detail-obsessed”, the Blue Violet team might focus on the little things but they don’t miss a trick when it comes to the full-scale style and vibe of a wedding. Aside from day-of and the-whole-guacamole coordination, they can also work as a wedding coach, providing the support of pros when needed.
And there you have it! More expertise and passion than you’ll know what to do with. Happy planning!
