The name Heartwood Weddings was born during a walk in Cathedral Grove on Vancouver Island. The strength of the ancient trees comes from their core: the heartwood. That core sets a strong foundation and provides the strength for growth and prosperity, just as a marriage should. We also know how sappy that sounds (pun very much intended)!
Whatever you need, we get it done. There are no cookie-cutter relationships so we don't have cookie-cutter packages. If you don't see what you need on our website, we will customize a plan that works for you. Each step of the planning process is set out by our planner, and we will walk you through the decisions that need to be made when you need to make them- it's as simple as that!
We offer a variety of packages, and customize our services to suit your needs. We would be thrilled to be a part of your special day, and take this responsibility very seriously. We like to get to know our couples on a personal level so that we can help reflect what makes you a perfect pair on your big day. We like to create the atmosphere where your love shines through.
