One of my biggest hurdles since starting my business has been cultivating TRUE Manitoba wedding industry relationships. Let’s be honest, being the new kid, trying to navigate through the kijiji photographers and the heavy hitters who have been around for 10+ years was ROUGH. Most current relationships between established vendors have been formed over those years and, hey, when you’re comfortable, you’re comfortable. It’s like a favorite pair of jeans. The ones that are loose enough to not give you muffin top but tight enough to make your butt look good. 😉
Since our inception in 2011 and our official launch in 2014, we have been striving to solidify vendor relationships within the Manitoba Wedding Industry that we know hold the same standards in customer service and value in industry comradery that we do. The kinds of relationships that are EQUALLY valuable. The kinds of people who will always have you on their list even if they have 10 other people on it because you know what? We don’t all do the same thing the same way. And I value that. It is extremely important to us that when we are recommending people to our couples that are reliable, dependable, and are with you every step of the way. Below you will find a collection of Manitoba vendors that we have worked with and personally hand selected! Keep checking back as our list grows!
Anderson’s Hitch ‘n Post Ranch
Over the last 30 years the Anderson’s have been perfecting their wedding event hosting just as much as they have been perfecting their baked beans (seriously amazing) Based in Grosse Isle, MB just off Highway 6, this one of a kind, one stop shop, venue is rustic wedding heaven. Just a hop and a skip from where we rest our boots, the staff go above and beyond like you were family.
Nina & Dave have been a staple in the Manitoba Wedding industry for as long as I can remember. Their warm personalities and passion for their craft is unlike any we’ve seen and we would recommend them 100 times over to anyone looking for a one of a kind confection!
Geneviève Katherine Makeup Artistry has been a part of Chantelle Dione Photogaphy for a few years now. She has been a part of many photo shoots and weddings and her makeup photographs beautifully. Gen has experience with all skin tones and can confidently create your perfect wedding look.
Inspired Elegance Events
Sheila has 10+ years of experience under her belt in the event management industry having began her career in Ottawa and now in Winnipeg for the last 8 years. Her motto is “I always tell my clients there is no such thing as too many details when it comes to an event.” We have loved working with Sheila as her attention to detail is spot on with ours.
Madeline’s Weddings and Events
Madeline, Jamie, and the team at Madeline’s Weddings and Events have been at the top of the Manitoba Wedding game since 2004. While they do offer full service planning as well, their custom-concept wedding decor is a specialty. Madeline’s has been supplying our gorgeous linen backdrop for our Winnipeg wedding shows and we are so thankful to have “friendors” like them!
Marry Me, Hunnie
We were lucky enough to meet Sheryl Hunnie, Marriage Commissioner extraordinaire, at the Niverville Heritage Centre’s open house in February 2017. Sheryl believes your ceremony should reflect your personalities and we couldn’t agree more!

Pearl & Birch Wedding Consignments

Her passion for pre-loved items even extends in to her now expanded store with 80% of the decor (interiors, equipment, and fixtures) being up-cycled items. The focus of Pearl & Birch is to provide cost conscious bridal gown options while honoring the beauty of their pre-loved gowns. Pearl & Birch is currently the only wedding consignment store serving the Prairies.
