Planning events your guests will rave about—with intention, artistry and expertise.
Since founding Smitten Events in 2013, we have planned over 400 experience-rich events, assembled an incredible team of talented wedding planners with diverse backgrounds and expertise, and earned a number of industry accolades to Smitten’s name. But our greatest reward will always be watching your reaction as your event unfolds.
We may be called wedding and event planners but really, we’re your advocates, experts, and project managers. Our shared passion for infusing your personality into your event informs the warm, personal approach we bring to planning—while our complementary skill sets ensure every creative and logistical base is covered along the way. We believe deeply in leading with kindness and listening with openness. We’re not here to force you to follow trends or traditions—we’re here to unearth exactly what it is that makes you, well, you—and then translate all of that goodness into an event that exudes your energy. Because here, your story, style, and substance are our favourite muses.
Our vision for our wedding was a cozy, inclusive space that everyone felt comfortable in, like you were coming over for Sunday night dinner. We wanted our guests to mingle and get to know each other and entrusted Devon and Jordan to bring our vision to life. They far exceeded our expectations! They were worth their weight in gold and our wedding was the best!

Words cannot truly express how grateful we are to have worked with Jennifer, from Smitten Events, and the sense of happiness and peace she gave us throughout our planning process. Communication was so easy, and the amount is detail that Jennifer had put into our planning process and wedding day remains unmatched. I was completely at peace the week leading up to our wedding as Jennifer completely took over all communication with our vendors and venue. She ensured that our timeline was executed, and we had the best time at our wedding. We were able to truly be in the moment and enjoy our wedding day because of Jennifer and, because of this, I cannot recommend Smitten Events enough! Working with Jennifer was an absolute treat.

I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Francesca and Smitten Events. Francesca is AMAZING! She is super professional, caring, detail oriented, and knowledgeable of the industry. I could never have imagined the level of enthusiasm and support I would receive from her during the wedding planning process.

o be honest, I was skeptical about hiring a wedding planner initially as I had no idea what they did. My wife assured me that it was an important investment and she was absolutely right. Our wedding was perfect and would have been impossible without Tori and her team. She went above and beyond and took everything off our plates on the wedding day so we could just enjoy.

What do you consider your style to be?
Timeless and intentional. Our style relies on intentional details, thoughtful hospitality, and vibrant experiences that give our clients and their people a time they won’t soon forget.
How did you get started in the wedding industry?
We first connected while working at a Vancouver-based wedding planning firm. During long days on site, we discovered many common interests, complementary skill sets and more than anything, a passion for a great party. Leaning on Devon's background in marketing and Jordan's experience in public relations, we purchased the planning company from its original owner and rebranded it as Smitten Events. Our goal? To create unforgettable weddings and events that leave a lasting impression.
Where do you find your design inspiration?
We often turn to fashion and design for inspiration. When a client comes to us without a clear vision for their wedding, we take the time to understand their personalities, interests and favorite travel destinations. By doing so, we can create a celebration that not only suits their taste, but also incorporates the elements that make them feel their best.
What is your favorite part about a wedding?
We get to experience many unforgettable moments throughout a wedding day, but there are two that always stand out. The first is the post-ceremony elation that radiates from our couples, filling the room with pure joy. The second is the decor reveal, where our clients get to witness their dreams coming to life before their guests' eyes. It's such a special moment for everyone involved.
