Ania + Brandon’s wedding was an unforgettable one. Their wedding took place in September 2012 but was only featured on Style Me Pretty a couple of months ago so we hadn’t shared all of the photos until recently. It’s always fun to take a trip down memory lane even though it feels like their wedding was just yesterday!
I became involved with the planning almost a year and a half in advance of Ania + Brandon’s wedding – beginning with the venue hunt which definitely allowed me to become very familiar with a plentiful of venues early on since we looked and looked and looked! We landed on the gorgeous Brock House at Jericho Beach as their venue and the rest of the planning and details fell right into place. Ania + I spent a lot of time together over the next year planning all of the many details which allowed us to develop a great friendship especially through the loss of her beautiful mom before the wedding day arrived.
As you will read in the Style Me Pretty feature, Ania + Brandon were able to have a very intimate ceremony with Ania’s mom present months earlier but we kept this a secret all the way until the actual wedding day. It was announced during the ceremony that Ania + Brandon would not need to sign official documents since they were married in a beautiful Catholic ceremony with Ania’s mom present several months prior. The couples’ strength, specifically Ania’s, throughout the entire ordeal was incredible and I definitely wanted to ensure their wedding day was nothing short of magical.
We had Delovely Creative on board to assist with bringing Ania’s decor + floral vision to life. Everything that day (as you can see in the photos) including the couple, the wedding party, guests + the beautiful decor glowed in the perfect light. The flower arrangements are still one of my favorites to date. I had my trusty sidekick, Vasia Weddings, on hand that day to capture all of the magical moments + stunning details. It was such an incredible day beginning to end + I wish we could go back and do it all over again!

“Simply the best wedding planner we could have hired in Vancouver! I would not hesitate to recommend Petite Pearl Events to anyone needing help organizing and planning any type of event or celebration!
Jessica was always organized and on top of the many aspects to cover. Most importantly keeping our budget under check and helped us source everything we had envisioned. I would have not known where to start in terms of hiring vendors that and she made it a breeze. In general she made what could have easily been a very stressful day and process – into a relaxed and extremely enjoyable experience for myself, my husband and all our guests!
I will no doubt miss working with Jessica and our many meetings over coffee. I highly suggest that you contact her and have her help you in creating the wedding day of your dreams!”
