Let me help you make your dream wedding come true!

Welcome! I'm sure you are excited about your wedding day! I am fully dedicated to making your dream wedding come true!

Planning a wedding is exciting, but it can also be stressful, and very time consuming. It takes precious time away from your work, your social life, and most importantly, your relationship with each other.

So please, let me take care of the details, this is your special day. My goal is that you feel confident and relaxed as you enjoy your special day!

I recently graduated in the Spring of 2010 with my BA from Trinity Western University, where I studied Education, Psychology and Sociology. I have always had an interest in planning weddings, but recently, that interest has flourished into an exciting opportunity for me. When I found QC School of Wedding Planning, I decided to jump into the world of wedding planning.

Please keep your eyes peeled; Happily Ever After Weddings will soon have a website!


I am excited to hear from you, and hear what your vision is of your special day! Since no two weddings are exactly the same, I have different packages to offer you.
