Best decision!

We recently got married at Sunwolf in Squamish and when it came time to hire a takeover coordinator, we did our research. We spoke to several companies to see who would be the best fit for us and Petite Pearl was the clear choice. From the moment we started working with Marcie, we knew we were in good hands.
My husband and I are both detail oriented and had already put so much time and effort into planning our day, it was important to make sure we were handing things over to someone who would put it all together the way we would. Marcie is professional, organised and knowledgeable, but we really felt like she was invested and excited for our day. The whole experience felt so personal, we were able to trust Marcie completely, so we could step back and enjoy our day without having to worry about a thing.
There were a few hiccups on site the day before we arrived for the weekend and Marcie was up there immediately to deal with it, only reaching out to us when absolutely necessary.
We had hoped for an outdoor ceremony and had very uncertain weather the day of, rain off and on. Marcie was our eyes and ears while we were getting ready, helping us to make the right call, even though there were several wipe downs of the chairs (thank you Nicola and Margot!), at the very last second the sun came out! It was a bit stressful but Marcie was reassuring and had a feeling things would work out the way we wanted them to.
She created a detailed itinerary, liaised with all of our vendors, made sure things were set up exactly as we had envisioned and kept things running seamlessly until the end of the night, while we were able to focus on having fun and enjoying ourselves!
Saying Marcie was an integral part of our day is an understatement- there's no way we could've done it without her and I'm not sure anyone else would've done it as well.
We were in such good hands from first meeting until the end of the night on our wedding day and we couldn't be more grateful.
Trusting someone with your wedding day, arguably one of the most important in your life, can be scary, but Petite Pearl was definitely the right choice, I can't recommend them highly enough!
Thank you, Marcie!
Your friends,
Jess & Robert

10/10 Experience!

Margot was an absolute dream to work with every step of the way. Our ceremony was very small, but we opted for a full planning package for peace of mind... and it was the best decision ever! Margot took such good care of us. She was super communicative, honest, and insightful throughout the entire planning process. She thoughtfully suggested vendors that fit our vision, vibe and budget perfectly... and all from a distance! We are so grateful for the time and attention she devoted to making sure every detail was just right. We really feel she went above and beyond.

Our wedding day was everything we envisioned and so much more. It was smooth, seamless and stress free! Margot designed a gorgeous event that we feel was a beautiful reflection of who we are and the love we share.

If you are searching for an event planner, do not hesitate to reach out to Petite Pearl. This team makes magic!

Went Over and Beyond!

Do not hesitate hiring Petite Pearl Events for your wedding. My (now) husband and I opted for a Takeover Coordinator to help us and it was one of the best decision we made. From the moment we met Marcie, we sensed she was a great fit and trustworthy. Throughout the process was no different as she communicated very well with us and our vendors. She is professional and punctual with meticulous organization skills (which is needed for a large venue like Sunwolf in Squamish).

On our wedding day, Marcie + her team (Nicola and Roxanne) from PPE went over and beyond from beginning to end. They were able to put our vision beautifully to reality. I can't emphasize enough how grateful we are for the extra effort made on this day - it truly made our event memorable for us and our guests.

With love,
Jae & Matteo

BEST Wedding Coordinator!

My husband and I chose to work with Nicola at Petite Pearl Events for our wedding day (Takeover Coordination option) and were blown away by the whole experience. We kept saying throughout our planning process that this was literally the best decision we'd made for our wedding! From the beginning, Nicola was quick to respond, professional, fun and friendly, and incredibly knowledgeable. We were planning our wedding from afar (we live in the Caribbean and were getting married in Vancouver), but were able to meet with Nicola over Zoom for all of our meetings. We loved that before we signed the contract with Petite Pearl we were able to meet with Nicola, chat about our hopes for the wedding and ask questions to ensure it was a good fit. We knew it was right away and felt at ease about the next steps for our planning despite doing so from so far away AND during the uncertainty of the pandemic. Nicola was super helpful with vendor suggestions, little details to consider, and things to start looking into. With the takeover coordination service, you get a 6-month-out meeting, which was also super helpful. Nicola checked in to see that we'd gotten the important things arranged and helped steer us in the right direction for next steps. I should also add that despite us not having chosen the full wedding planning option, Nicola was there to answer any little questions that popped up along the way, which was amazing. About 6 weeks out we had a long meeting, and then Nicola 'took over' and became the point of contact for the vendors...this was awesome! She was able to remind us when final payments were due, ensure rentals were going to be picked up and dropped off at the right times, etc. She prepared a detailed itinerary for the day of the wedding, along with the events leading up to it, and made changes as and when they came up. It really relieved a lot of stress for us. The week before the wedding, we got to have another meeting (face-to-face, once we were finally in the same country!) and again, she was so helpful making sure everything was exactly right. For our rehearsal, Nicola was there and made sure everyone was comfortable and knew what to expect on the actual wedding day. On our actual day, Nicola was the first one to the venue with her assistant, and they made sure everything looked beautiful and was exactly right. It was so wonderful not having to worry about a single thing on our wedding day - all of our family and friends could just enjoy the day without having to worry about dropping off centrepieces or preparing decorations and arranging the flowers. The whole day flowed so smoothly, and it was because Nicola was on top of everything, making sure it was all going according to plan. At the end of the night, she ensured everything was cleared up and all rentals were returned, cards and gifts went home safely, and that the venue was in good shape. Nicola went above and beyond our expectations and we honestly couldn't have asked for a better experience. We had the best day and are so grateful for Nicola!

Seamless planning and jaw dropping design services

We engaged Petite Pearl Events with Marcie as our lead planner and designer for Month-of Coordination and Event Design Services for our wedding in October 2021. How can I even begin to describe how amazing Marcie and the Petite Pearl team were?

For our event design services, Marcie took some scattered ideas we had on Pinterest and turned our venue of Dusty鈥檚 Whistler into the most romantic, cozy, mountain lodge that had a sophisticated yet boho-chic feel to it all. I don鈥檛 know how she managed this, but the decor all the way from the plates to the furniture to the arrangements - everything was beautiful and perfect. She also worked closely with our florist to communicate the vision and colours we wanted which resulted in beautiful creations.

For our month-of coordination services, Marcie really went above and beyond here. The 60 days before our wedding, covid restrictions were constantly changing, even including up to the day of the wedding, which required us to have many plans and contingencies in place. Marcie was extremely organized and excellent with communication. She worked directly with all of our vendors to navigate almost daily changes, and helped us be ready for just about anything the day threw at us. She also helped make sure we thought about absolutely everything and plan for everything, so that we felt prepared leading up to and could relax on the day of. Marcie made our whole wedding experience a dream. Now we want to have another just to work with her again! Seriously the best investment we made with our wedding was for the services we received from Marcie and Petite Pearl. For what they delivered, their fee should have be double or triple what they actually charge. The value for the quality of service and creativity is not matched by anyone in the sea to sky region.

Lastly, the Petite Pearl team was wonderful to work with. They don鈥檛 bring just anyone along to assist with events on the day of, they bring their other designers and planners. This really helped us feel like everything was absolutely perfect and there was nothing for us to worry about with such an experienced team on site for us during the day.

Thank you so much to Marcie, Jessica and the whole Petite Pearl Team for an amazing experience!

Best decision!

Our location required a Day of Coordinator. After doing some research, PPE seemed to be the best fit for us. We were paired up with Nicola and decided to do the month of coordination as we were planning a wedding 3 provinces away. We found out after that family worked with Nicola last year and they said "[She/PPE] was the best money we spent, but no pressure".
I could not agree more with their statement as Nicola is AMAZING! She is truly a gem and wonderful at what she does. She had all the little details covered and took away the normal stresses of planning a wedding completely. Add on the endless changes of planning a wedding during Covid - which honestly, Nicola's support/positivity was much appreciated when I was questioning if a wedding was even possible.
I could go on and on about Nicola and why she is an asset and an absolute must. If you're on the fence about a day of/mouth out coordinator, do it. And ask for Nicola. I promise you will not be disappointed :)

The Most Passionate Wedding Planners in Greater Vancouver

We hired Petite Pearl for Month-Of Coordination for our wedding, with Nicola as lead planner and Jessica as her "sidekick".

You can sense the deep passion both Nicola and Jessica have for their careers from the moment you meet them - and with every meeting, phone call or email that follows, their conviction to creating perfection only gets clearer.

We do have one regret when it comes to hiring Petite Pearl... and its not hiring them for the Full Planning to begin with. We thought we had all of our ducks in a row (except for executing the plan) but we ended up being asked questions by them we never even realized we had, were guided by them with their expertise of how certain things could be better and frankly - our day would undoubtedly have not been anywhere near as amazing without them by our sides for the month leading up to and including our special day.

The moment they became members of our team, our stress meters were closer to zero than we could have ever imagined them being at a time like that and what came as no surprise - everything about our day went perfectly (except that part where one of the groomsmen鈥檚 pants split open - but of course they had a needle and thread on hand to solve that problem too!)

We are eternally grateful to have had Nicola/Jessica/Petite Pearl as a part of our love story and I will forever highly recommend their team, no hesitation, to anyone looking for the best and most passionate event planners in Greater Vancouver (and beyond!)

Hard working & attentive planner who absolutely crushed planning our wedding.

Jessica and the entire Petite Pearl Events' team went so far beyond expectations for our wedding that we're going to commission a Netflix miniseries about how incredible the whole experience was, and have David Attenborough narrate the whole thing!! Seriously though, our friends and family are still raving about the beautiful decore, the seemless flow of the whole day, and how carefree and comfortable we both were with such a huge event! We owe it all to Jess and the entire PPE team.

We opted for the Month & Day-of planning with Event Design for our 170 person wedding at the Stanley Park Pavilion, and for us it was a life saver! From our our very first meeting with Jess we knew we were in good hands. She was well prepared, organized, very attentive, and never afraid of having a laugh (especially when speaking frankly about the many difficulties of planning a wedding!). After the initial meeting she was always quick to answer our questions, and did a great job managing expecations when it might take a bit longer to reply. Most importantly, Jess wasn't afraid of giving her honest input, being open to new suggestions, and ultimately running full steam ahead with our final decisions. This really made us feel like we were still in the driver's seat, just with a fantastic navigator.

PPE kept checking in with us before the one-month mark to make sure we had made our key decisions, just to make sure there were no last minute surprises-or at least very few. In organizing our vendors, PPE's industry contacts ran deep, and Jess's logistical prowess was always self-evident. We would have been a wreck if we didn't have their help! Our advice: If you have more than 3 vendors for your wedding, do yourself a favor and hire these pros, you will thank us later! As far as we know there were zero problems on our wedding day, and if there was the PPE team solved it without any of our guests hearing a peep.

When designing the decor, Jess absolutely nailed the look and feel we wanted. And from what we've seen of their other events, it was no cookie-cutter affair; everything was done to complement our style. It was clear to us that fostering conversation and easy guest-flow was a top priority for PPE, and it was beautifully executed. There was always a spot for guests to gather, have a seat, and easily converse. Many of our guests said it was the best wedding they had been to (even the married couples!).

Our wedding was the most incredible day of both of our lives, hands down. We had so much fun, and are so thrilled with how it turned out, and we both feel it is due in large part to Jessica and the incredible team at Petite Pearl Events. Thank you thank you thank you!

Wedding coordinator !

PETITE PEARL is THE wedding coordinator/planning company to go with for your dream wedding!! From the start, they are so professional and attentive to all the details. Communication is smooth, easy and very often to be able to accommodate ALL of our requests!

We had Nicola as our wedding coordinator - she thinks of all the details and makes you comfortable and at ease during the entire process. She communicated with our vendors which made the last month (August) much easier. She is wonderful!

Because of PETITE PEARL we were able to have our dream wedding!! Thanks so much Jessica and Nicola! :) :)

Best decision we made

If anyone is questionning whether or not to get a day of/month out coordinator, I cannot recommend it enough! Gord from Petite Pearl made everything leading up to our wedding an absolute breeze. It felt so great to hand everything over to him and allow ourselves to enjoy the day. He was calm, cool, and completely organized - everything you would want in a coordinator. I highly recommend hiring Petite Pearl!

Hey! I鈥檓 Jessica but most people call me by my maiden name 鈥楳innie鈥, so you can too. I am a M茅tis womxn, a mama to the raddest little dudes Gordie + Tanner, a wife, a pisces + the Founder/Creative Director of PPE.

I鈥檓 the opposite of shy but I most definitely prefer to be behind the scenes doing what I love most + working hard to make moments extremely special, stress-free + picture perfect for others. I started PPE in 2010 from my kitchen table + the trunk of a Sipcar while working another full time job. By the age of 26, I was completely self employed. Fast forward to 2019 + I have an incredible team of 4 other full time Lead Planners/Designers, 2 part time Lead Planners, 1 part time Designer + the best wedding day assistants. The last 13 years have required extreme dedication + many sleepless nights, but each year is more rewarding than the last + I continuously get to meet some of the most inspiring individuals/couples who are still in my life to this day. I hope that you can be one of those couples as well.

Hi, I鈥檓 Margot and I like long walks on the beach鈥 no but seriously, I鈥檓 a Vancouver girl at heart. I can stare at the ocean for hours. It centres me and fires me up for adventure all at the same time! And when it comes to adventure, well, that鈥檚 sort of my jam. My favourite quote + guiding principle is 鈥渇eel the fear and do it anyway鈥. Following that mantra has led me into the most amazing experiences of my life鈥 like sailing around the world on an old timey tall ship, quitting my 9-5 to follow my passion for wedding planning (more on that coming up) and moving halfway around the world + planning/executing events for PPE in a new city/country for a couple of years abroad. Speaking of that work life (and let鈥檚 be real, personal too, because there isn鈥檛 really a difference for me), 2022 marks my 10th year with PPE where I鈥檓 a Senior Lead Planner + Event Designer. It鈥檚 the best of both worlds; all of the nerdy OCD satisfaction of spreadsheets + colour-coded timelines together with the creative challenge of pulling together eclectic + highly personalized events for my amazing clients.

The magic of the fact that I am a small part in so many people's most precious memories is not lost on me. I love it!
