10/10 recommend Thistle & Thorne to anyone embarking on the wedding planning journey!

Holy smokes! Where do we start with how much we love Jodie and her Thistle & Thorne Team!!!

Our wedding day was one of the best days either of us have ever experienced and that is due in large part to Jodie and her amazing team! Throughout the two years we took to plan our wedding (thanks COVID!), Jodie was always professional, responsive, organized and, overall, was such a delight to work with. She made every interaction feel like we were the only wedding she was planning and helped us every step of the way.

As an expert in the industry, she was able to help us identify vendors that best suited our vision, while also keeping us within our budget. She always answered our endless questions and allowed us to have a fairly stress-free wedding planning experience.

The end result was spectacular and we will be reliving our special day for years and years to come! With Jodie’s direction, our vision and vibe came together perfectly and it was so beautiful.

10/10 recommend Thistle & Thorne to anyone embarking on the wedding planning journey!

P.S. We also loved the platform she uses (Aisle Planner) as it helped make the planning process even easier (winning combination = Jodie + Aisle Planner)

If you need a wedding coordinator - this is the one

I do not have enough space to write all of the things that make Jodie an incredible choice for being our wedding coordinator, but here are some of her highlights:
- She has an extensive wealth of knowledge all things wedding related that made our planning process so much smoother. Whether it was COVID regulations, vendor suggestions, decoration trends, flow of planning a day, we had the utmost trust in her and her guidance every step of the way and our success of the day really shows how important he input was with our planning.
- She is probably the hardest working woman you will ever meet - many of our guests were amazed at her organization, diligence, leadership, and grace that she carried throughout the day. As a bride, she allowed me to feel fully present on the day because I knew that everything was being taken care of with precision and care.
- She is so stinking thoughtful and kind - by the time the wedding came around, it didn't feel like we were in a transactional business & client relationship, but as friends. Her emails are always warm and empathetic, our planning meetings we're filled with laughter, and on the day of, even with how busy she was, she would give us thoughtful touches like surprising us with glasses of champagne to celebrate right after the ceremony, or taking sweet videos that we'll keep forever as memories!

I could go on but hopefully you've already booked her, and if you haven't then what the heck are you waiting for.

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.
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

Best investment of the wedding

Destinye was an AMAZING person to have on our side from day 1 when we met all the way through to the wedding. She has such a kind and go getter spirit - you’ll feel like friends by the end. We loved having her (and her team) and she made our (very complicated with timing and transportation) wedding run like a dream. She rolled with every last minute change and made every last request happen, no questions asked. Before we got engaged, I didn’t even know a day of coordinator existed. Now, I can’t imagine pulling off our wedding without one. Highly, highly recommend

Highly Recommend!

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!

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!

Jodie Fulcher
Owner, Lead Wedding Planner & Coordinator

Hi, it me!⁣

The Formal Bits:

  • I received my Bachelor of Management from UBC
  • I've spent a decade in the hospitality industry
  • I have coordinated 300+ weddings in my career
  • I branched out on my own, creating Thistle & Thorne in 2017 and never looked back baby

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

Hi there!

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.
