We reside in Vancouver and planned on running our Kelowna wedding ourselves until a close friend of ours recommended we give Shawna at White Orchid a call. We are so glad we took her advice! We ended up hiring Shawna for the partial planning+day of event package. Shawna provided us with excellent advice at every step of the way, helping us make decisions on every aspect of the wedding and the surrounding events both big and small. We particularly appreciated Shawna's attention to detail and the excellent coordination on the day of our event - our wedding ceremony and reception went off without a hitch which allowed us to enjoy our day and be present knowing that every detail was taken care of. Shawna went above and beyond for us to make sure every part of our day exceeded our expectations - we're so grateful to her for making our wedding day truly unforgettable and stress-free! Shawna is a complete pleasure to work with... you'll be in great hands with the WOW team!

Hiring Shawna was absolutely worth every penny!! We were an out of town couple that hired her for a partial planning package. Her experience and knowledge is invaluable and she is so organized! Shawna made sure that our wedding day went perfectly . We didn't have to worry about anything .She is sweet and caring and easy to get along with and talk to. All of the details were taken care of so my husband and I could really focus on ourselves and our guests . She has great style and knows how to make a room look beautiful . She kept me calm when my nerves were all over the map and I knew that I could trust her to keep things running smoothly. We really could not have had such a perfect day without her! From the bottom of our hearts -Thank you Shawna!

Shawna was recommended to us quite a few times, as I was planning the wedding myself, had a new baby and was planning a move from AB to BC. Finally decided to call and inquire about the services White Orchid offered... After speaking with Shawna on the phone I was sold! She was reassuring, supportive and just amazing! In the midst of the my life's beautiful chaos Shawna was in contact for our first meeting and checklist review... Meeting her over coffee and the time and effort she puts forth is beyond compare. She alleviated all concerns and stresses. Which coupled with her knowledge and expertise of vendors in the area and a vision of what her clients are imagining for their big day, was such a blessing when you're not from Kelowna. Her promise of an amazingly perfect day definitely came through... Far exceeding our expectations! There literally is no comparison for the client care and detail Shawna and her team provide!
Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

When I was first engaged I had reservations about hiring a wedding planner and working this expense into our budget. It turns out that hiring Shawna from White Orchid Wedding was money well spent! Her services were worth every penny to save me from a day of headache and stress. I had the most stress-free and relaxing getting ready session on the morning of my wedding. I don't think I would have been as calm and able to enjoy my day, if it hadn't been for Shawna and her crew. Despite the fact that it rained on my wedding day and we had to move our ceremony indoors, Shawna managed to swiftly pull off a beautiful "plan B" ceremony without a hitch! I had the most amazing wedding day and there is nothing I would have changed about it even though we had to execute our contingency plan. My husband and I are so grateful for having Shawna as our day of coordinator and we highly recommend her to anyone getting married in the Okanagan. Thank you so much, WOW!

Our dream day, or what we call Ascension to Love was absolutely perfect. We had the opportunity to enjoy our day in its entirety, which honestly felt like we were in a fairy tale film. Shawna and her team coordinated a team of over 20 with an agenda that was planned down to the minute. We were met in our separate vehicles for a ‘mental health’ check in and to have our flowers pinned on by the expert planning team. Our guests were ushered to three event spaces on the property and kept comfortable every step of the way.

We cannot speak enough positivity about the experience we had with White Orchid Wedding Consulting and their dedication to our vision. Above all the details and planning we feel as though we developed a friendship through the process. When you allow yourself to be supported by a team of professionals like W.O.W you open yourself up to creating the wedding event you only dreamed of.

If you are planning your wedding and want enjoy every minute we highly recommend working alongside White Orchid Wedding Consulting. You will not regret your investment and can be assured that you will have absolute confidence in their attention to detail. Little things don’t mean a lot – they mean everything!

My husband and I live in Calgary but we're married in the okanagan. We were looking for a planner who is flexible and familiar with with local vendors. We found just that in Shawna! She is an excellent communicator who kept us up to date on all things wedding! She turned our vision into a reality and orchestrated a perfect day that was more beautiful than even we could have imagined. She is friendly, positive, honest, reassuring, organized, efficient and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Shawna and White Orchid Weddings to anyone who is even just a little interested in hiring a planner. She went above and beyond in all aspects of our day was well worth it!!

The best decision we made for our wedding was to hire Shawna as our day-of coordinator. We had a backyard wedding and were worried our friends and family would spend the day getting things ready; Shawna was on hand to make sure that didn't happened. The tables were set up exactly as we wanted them; everyone was able to enjoy the ceremony as she took care of the behind the scenes part; when the wind picked up, Shawna jumped in and moved things, and cleared a space under our tent in case of rain. There were so many little details that we didn't have to worry about because Shawna was there taking care of it all. We would definitely recommend Shawna to other couples getting married in the Okanagan; she was a pleasure to work with, and made our wedding day go smoothly.

Shawna made my wedding. I am an a-typical bride who really didn't want to spend time planning the wedding, so I left a lot of things to the last minute then panicked. Shawna pulled all the pieces together and made a day that I truly will never forget - it was the best day of my life, and I'm not just saying that. She was incredible from day one, and made sure that our wedding was a complete hit. I didn't have to do much planning at all, she took care of most of it. She was very easy to work with and has excellent communication skills. Couldn't have done it without her.

We were so happy that we decided to work with Shawna for our Wedding. We both grew up in the Okanagan but live in Vancouver so were not familiar or prepared with how quickly the vendors book up in the area. Shawna gave us excellent advice on what we needed to book right away, good vendors to work with, and great suggestions on how to make the wedding more "us." She asked us great questions that we had not even thought of! Shawna was our "Day-of-Coordinator" but she was hands on with us at least a month out. Our day was absolutely amazing and Shawna was a huge part of that. Thank you!!!

Shawna did a fabulous job planning our wedding. Since we are not from the Okanagan, she gave us great suggestions for reliable vendors, and also gave us a lot of great advice for décor ideas, stationary, etc. It is obvious that Shawna is very passionate about her job. Our day was absolutely perfect all thanks to Shawna's hard work and dedication!
