Event Details

Given that Jenia & Vanessa both arrived from different countries, they wanted some assistance in the planing of their Canadian wedding, while staying true to their cultures. Working with these two was such a treat, as they were so laid back.

Jenia and Vanessa wanted their wedding to be simplistic while representing each of them. This was the backdrop to making decisions about decor, details and their wedding party. Their wedding party consisted of their closest friends who happened to be married. And although they lived in a different province, they couldn’t have been more supportive.

There was no ‘first-look’ but there was a love note that was given to Jenia by Vanessa, only to leave him with tears and wanting more. But Jenia would have to wait until the ceremony before seeing his bride.

For the processional, Jenia chose to come in on his Harley Davidson to the song “Can I Get a Witness” by SonReal. (Now every time I hear that song I think of their processional). Upon arriving, his best man hands him a cool beer, they take a few sips and then they approach the alter.  Jenia wanted to have a say in some of the details, and so he decided to have a little fun with the processional.

Jenia and Vanessa had an intimate wedding with their closest family and friends, and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect for their outdoor ceremony. Vanessa’s Grandparents were unable to speak english, and since it was her Grandfather giving her away, Pastor Konrad spoke german to her Grandfather when asking who was giving this woman to be married. It’s these little thoughtful gestures that personalize weddings and will always be remembered.

The focus for their evening reception was to ensure their guests were having fun. Tyler of Whyte Weddings incorporated this fun factor through interactive games throughout the evening, which had guests burning calories. But no worries, there was ample food to restore any calories lost!

Dancing played a special part in their reception. I’m not just talking about your average dancing, I’m talking about ballroom dancing! Jenia and Vanessa kicked off the dance floor with their show stopper first dance. Following that was the amazing performance by Vanessa and her Grandfather, which left us all with tears to dry. But then came the dance by her Grandparents, it was like watching Dancing With The Stars – so amazing!! You can read more of Jenia & Vanessa’s Fairy Tale Wedding on the BLOG.


Jenia and Vanessa, thank you so much for asking me to help you plan your wedding. It was such an honor and an joyable experience. As you add new chapters to your fairy tale story, may you always find the best friend in each other to draw strength, courage and laughter. Wish you guys a lifetime of happiness!!

“We started planning our wedding on our own, but being a busy couple we decided to ask Sharon to help us. Sharon is such a sweet, loving and caring person who was always there for us. She answered all our questions and helped us with concerns we had. She is very organized and right on spot. I was worried how our wedding will look like so she created a story board for us to visualize our big day. She has pointed out so many details in our wedding that we would have never thought about. Planning our wedding with Sharon made it so much easier. Of course there are days where I was overwhelmed but when she puts the details in perspective it wasn’t so bad. I am absolutely amazed of how she organized, managed and timed our Big Day. Not once did I have the feeling something didn’t go as planned. Everything went by plan. She made sure the vendors were on time. She even came with me to check out the decor and flowers. She took care of our guests when we were gone with the photographer. We had 3 families out from Europe and when Sharon offered to set everything up by herself the night before was a huge stress reliever. Thank you for that. I could have never done this without you. To me it felt like there were 4 of you running around and taking care of everything. 🙂 Vanessa & Jenia”
