Jodie was the best!
Can't say enough amazing things about Jodie! After our wedding plans changed due to Covid, we were so lucky to have found a new venue and wedding coordinator on very short notice. Jodie worked her magic, and made our small 30 person wedding at Highgate Hills Retreat come to life! She had so much knowledge, professionalism, and creativity. Her easy going personality fit perfectly with our vibe, and we could not have asked for a better wedding coordinator!Sent on 20/01/2021

Very professional and helpful
Jodie was our coordinator for our wedding at high gate hills retreat. Having a coordinator for your day of is money well spent.Sent on 26/10/2020
Jodie made sure our decorations looked great before we walked down the aisle (it was a windy day), she had great recommendations like renting blankets and heaters. She Helped coordinate the DJ and the wedding party so they all went down the aisle with the right music and spaced apart.
Jodie was part of a package with our venue but now that I’ve had her i feel it was something we needed for our wedding. She took stress off the day and made sure everything went smoothly.
Thank you jodie for making my day amazing

Working with Jodie and the PEAKS and VOWS team was an absolute dream!! With two months notice they helped us make our dream wedding day a reality. I am very detail oriented and love planning but it was so nice to hand it over to Jodie and let her take care of everything. She is super friendly, easy going and made our day stress free! From quick responses to helping with last minute special requests, she was a breeze to work with and she clearly loves what she does. We cannot recommend her enough for helping plan your special day!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!Sent on 08/06/2021

Hi, it me!
The Formal Bits:
The Real Stuff:
As an onsite wedding coordinator, the venue I called home for the last two years was the beautiful Fraser River Lodge.
First of all... it is my purpose in life (I think) to love, protect and lift up humans. I think everyone is unique & creative in their own weird & wonderful ways and getting to know people is one of my favorite parts of my job.
Maybe I wont "get" what you love but if you LOVE something and it's your WORLD I am so excited to learn about it and share your energy for it. #unabashedlyyou
Mental health, the environment, basic human rights/equality, & community are core values.
I believe weddings are about people. Period. Everything else is a bonus.
I am a huge plant nerd and have a minimum of 100 plants pretty much year round. I grow a lot of my own veggies/herbs and will probably give you some (whether you want them or not).
I was raised by a self-employed Veterinarian boss lady and an ex-hippy Handy Man so I'm part animal lover, go-getter, & entrepreneur.. part jack of all trades, free spirit with an affinity for hoppy beer, tannic red wines, gin cocktails and tequila. Yes, the conflict is real.
I attended a physical church for most of my life but I believe a church is anywhere you want/need it to be. I love learning about people's spirituality, culture, and traditions (or lack thereof).
I love to cook but not as much as I love to eat. My food ALWAYS has butter and garlic in it.
I'm a realist AND a romantic. I cry during movies, sappy commercials, 30 sec youtube clips of animals.. and on wedding days.
I drink too much coffee. I camp. I ride snow on skis and my snowboard (neither well but neither horribly). I like to go dancing but never in heels.
I get hangry and I generally dont fall asleep before midnight.
My partner is my world. My best friend is my rock. My pets are my babies.
Lead Events Coordinator
My name is Alex and I’m all about weddings and special events :)
I graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing Management degree in 2014 and have been in the event planning industry ever since.
Saying that I am passionate about weddings and event planning would be an understatement. It consumes me and is a big part of my every day. The best part about it…seeing the faces of couples and clients light up when they are happy with the outcome (I am also secretly gushing in the background as the event starts to unfold). It’s such a treat to work with so many amazingly talented individuals in the industry and of course, the rock star of Thistle & Thorne Weddings, Jodie Fulcher.
Ask me anything and I will hands down give you the best advice for your special day. And if you’re needing guidance on color schemes? Well that just makes my excitement explode :) I can’t wait to be a part of bringing your beautiful day to light from beginning to end – with the help of a coffee in between.
Hi! I'm Emily. I do admin work for Jodie and it's the best. I will probably bother you with emails at some point. I can't wait :)
