Sweetheart Events

   
  
When we first heard about Sweetheart Events and it's recent launch we wanted to get know the principal planner behind the company and to share with you, our Vancouver Brides & Grooms, a company that will not only help you through your planning stages for your special day, but to be there right from the start through her "prosal planning". For our Q&A with Stephanie and more about Sweetheart Events, see below.

Stephanie is known for her genuine approach with her clients, her upbeat personality and her contagious laughter. Her career in events began over five years ago when she was given the opportunity to shadow another event planner. Stephanie knew she’d found her path and took every opportunity to learn. She worked with two well respected planning companies in the city, obtained her certificate in Event Planning Management from BCIT, obtained Canada’s highest certification through The Wedding Planners Institute of Canada and attends annual conferences to continue her education in the field.  Her desire to work with her clients on a more personalized level inspired the creation of Sweetheart Events.


Sweetheart Events // About Us Film from Kunioo on Vimeo.

What inspired you to become a planner?
I’ve always enjoyed the little details that go along with planning an event and have always worked very well with people. I chose wedding planning because I love being a part of a couple’s love story and seeing their vision come to life on their special day. What can I say, I LOVE love!

What inspired you to start Sweetheart Events?
I have always had the dream of owning my own company. Working with my clients on a more personalized level was very important to me when starting my own company and creating an occasion to fit them, their story and their personalities perfectly. I wanted to start from the very beginning, to relieve the stress and create an exciting experience from Yes to I Do!

Tell us a bit about yourself?
I was born in Abbotsford and am the oldest of 6, yes 6! I moved to Vancouver 7 years ago and never look back. I was always searching for my dream job and finally have it after schooling and a lot of hard work! In my spare time, I enjoy travelling to new cities and hot destinations, experimenting with new gluten and dairy free recipes and working up a sweat at the local Bar Method studio.My friends and clients describe me as: genuine, warm, personable, approachable and an overall Sweetheart.

What do you love most about weddings?
I have to be honest. I have three ☺
I love seeing the details come together on the day, exchanging one last hug before sending the bride down the aisle and watching the groom’s reaction seeing his bride for the first time whether it is her walking down the aisle or during the first look.

Your favorite wedding trend for 2013?
I love how much DIY and “Pinterest Weddings” we are seeing. I definitely admire those brides that take on the timely task of crafting their wedding décor and/or recreating an idea they saw on Pinterest. In the end it is always beautiful and adds more personality to the wedding.


What advice would you give couples looking for a wedding planner?
I advise couples to begin right away. Perhaps use the same planner that assisted your fiancé in his proposal planning. Ask your friends who they went with and ensure that your planner is the perfect personality fit. You want to find someone who fully understands your wants and needs and who can deliver them on the day.

What do you hope couples get out of their experience with Sweetheart events?
I want each couple to have a fun, memorable and stress free experience while we are planning for their special day-

Where do you see Sweetheart events in 5 or 10 years from now?
I see Sweetheart Events as a highly recommended and trusted planning company where my clients know they are getting a wonderful planning experience that is crafted for them personally.

Where in the process of planning do you suggest to find a planner?
I love working with a couple from the very beginning but enjoy the challenge of taking on a client just months before her special day as well. I suggest finding a planner before you begin feeling overwhelmed with the process to ensure a stress free experience throughout.

Favorite wedding movie?
My Best Friend’s Wedding starring Julia Roberts. I watch it all the time and always feel the need to reenact the first scene of them singing.
