Aloha, friends. My name is Courtney and this my corner of the internet. Welcome.
I’m an event planner + blogger based out of Kamloops BC and I split my time between working in the Okanagan and Vancouver, where I’m originally from.
After graduating from Simon Fraser University in 2008 my (now) husband Ben and I moved to Kamloops with our chocolate lab Bauer for Ben’s career. I’m lucky enough to have a 9-5 gig with a great company, which enables me to explore my love for event planning, design projects, and other artsy-fartsy exploits during my time off.
This blog has grown with me over the past few years documenting my work, my inspirations, my aspirations, and – most recently – our wedding! Through blogging and the powers of social media I have been fortunate enough to work with and meet some amazing people in Canada and the US. Blogging continues to be an integral part of my creative growth and facilitates the growth and development of my event-planning career.
Give me a shout! I’m always interested in discussing new projects or collaborative opportunities and I love chatting about weddings and parties.
Thanks for stopping by.
that if you are honest, hard working, and respectful no one can ever fault you.
in laughing at myself with myself.
in asking questions and challenging answers.
there is always a reason to toast with champagne.
Saturday mornings. list making. dog snuggles. creative solutions. laughing. cheese. listening to music for most of my waking hours. champagne. travelling. using dramatic (and sometimes hazardous) hand gestures. trying new things. goal setting. dancing. Vancouver rain and Okanagan sun. collaborating with brilliant people. all causes for celebration.
global warming. inequality. bad grammar. excuses. cookie cutter weddings. dishonesty. haters. taking out the garbage. greed. inappropriate best man speeches. waste. ruts. bananas (exception: smoothies). dog farts. people who re-tweet every compliment tweeted to them.
