squamish + vancouver
450+ weddings + events
blood, sweat + tears
we do what we love
too many laughs
we throw zero boring parties
we can be fancy, we can be laid back, we can be a lot of things. we find it very difficult to describe ourselves as any specific style because each of our events completely reflects our clients - their style, their personalities, their vision. our planning process is modified for every couple depending on their preferred level of involvement, their planning timeline + their personalities. but one thing that is consistent and that we hear over and over is that we are known for details, for our laid-back yet precise planning style, our strong relationships with our vendors and our ability to bring out the best in our clients to create unforgettable celebrations. we listen, we learn, we research, we trust, we create, we hustle + have a helluva lotta fun.
producing weddings in europe was an incredible chapter for us, it was forever changed and put at a complete halt due to the pandemic and relocation of our UK-based planner. as of right now, we are no longer based in the UK but of course WE TRAVEL and are able to offer our services in europe where we have vendor relationships or worldwide. otherwise you can find us working our bums off on weddings being held in vancouver and the sea to sky corridor (squamish/whistler/pemberton) in british columbia.
we are always asked what our job entails. our team motto #webeclassy describes it best. we coined this phrase to sarcastically describe the level of disheveled we hit at the 16th hour on event days. we promise we truly are well put together individuals... until we've been onsite since the crack of dawn, living on coffee and a crumb, resorting to top knots, lugging around furniture, beading sweat, wearing zap straps as part of our attire, answering a zillion questions and hanging from the rafters at some point racing against time to ensure everything is absolutely perfect. don't even get us started on what we look like at 4am after tear down. yes, a big part of the job is meetings, spreadsheets, planning, emails x a million and all the paperwork but the other half of our life is spent onsite evenings and weekends bringing it all together. we are 150% hands-on because nothing is more important to us than you having the best day of your life.
"....the commitment and hard work Jessica puts toward her business and client relationships is so inspiring that it actually led me to re-evaluate my own job...everyone should be so lucky to be as in love with their career and it truly shows in everything she does. I could not be more thankful to have worked with Petite Pearl and recommend using Jessica and team with my highest praise...."
"You will learn that most wedding vendors are very good at their art, but many are not very good at their business. [Petite Pearl] is the full package...I couldn't recommend Margot or Petite Pearl highly enough. They made the planning process a piece of cake, and our wedding day unbelievably special, and all the while she is a genuinely nice person that you look forward to interacting with. Can't beat that."
"Regardless of how chaotic the world was, Jessica was present and focused in every aspect of the process,.. There literally wasn’t one moment of stress on our end and we can’t say enough about how amazing our experience was and how much our love for Jessica had grown over the last three years. We wish there were more excuses to throw parties just to work with these wonderful people again."
"We had such a great experience with Marcie at Petite Pearl Events. She quickly made us feel comfortable, listened, and was responsive to our ideas and feedback. We truly felt that the process was transparent and promoted trust. The result was outstanding. The attention to detail was amazing. It was definitely a smooth operation on the big day. Our families and friends had a marvellous time."
"Nicola planned our wedding that took place recently in Whistler and words cannot even begin to describe how perfect it was. Nicola worked tirelessly behind the scenes to pull off multiple wedding events for us and made it look easy, even though we know it wasn't! Every single detail was well thought out and curated perfectly to fit our aesthetic and vibe that we envisioned for the day."
"....Hiring Petite Pearl Events was like unlocking a door to a whole new world of wedding possibilities that we had no idea were possible! We always knew that Jessica and her team would make our extravagant vision come to life (and did they ever!!!). But what we didn't realize is how much support, both technical and emotional, Jessica would provide throughout the entire process. She was our comrade in building inspiration and excitement, and our saviour in times of confusion...."
"....Marcie worked directly with all of our vendors to navigate almost daily changes, and helped us be ready for just about anything the day threw at us. She also helped make sure we thought about absolutely everything and plan for everything, so that we felt prepared leading up to and could relax on the day of. Marcie made our whole wedding experience a dream. Now we want to have another just to work with her again!...."
"Instead of working with us for a year we ended up working with [Nicola] for a total of 3 years due to multiple rescheduled dates because of Covid. Throughout that whole time we always felt like a valued customer and never felt forgotten. we finally had our long anticipated wedding day and it was way more then we ever could have imagined thanks to Nicola and Petite Pearls hard work."
"....I know everyone warns you that "something will go wrong" on your wedding day, but I honestly can't think of even one thing that wasn't flawless, and it was mostly thanks to Jessica and Margot's attention to detail and true passion for putting on amazing events. Beyond our own rave reviews, everyone in the local industry has the utmost respect for Jessica, and I think that speaks volumes for the calibre of business she’s built...."
Margot was an absolute dream to work with every step of the way. Our ceremony was very small, but we opted for a full planning package for peace of mind... and it was the best decision ever! Margot took such good care of us... She thoughtfully suggested vendors that fit our vision, vibe and budget perfectly... and all from a distance! We are so grateful for the time and attention she devoted to making sure every detail was just right. We really feel she went above and beyond."
"Jess, the wedding was perfect....me and Matt could not have done it without you (and if we had, we would likely have two stomach ulcers, one heart attack, one acute case of post-traumatic stress and 140 food poisoned guests between us). You rocked our socks off. And every single person was overwhelmed with how amazing it was, so I am counting on seeing you at our friends weddings as you execute on perfections! You are an angel masquerading as a planner."
"Jessica and her team were exceptional in every way....We had a fairly unique and unconventional idea of what we wanted our wedding to look like; Jessica truly listened to our ideas, and offered helpful suggestions while still respecting our values and ultimate vision....Hiring Petite Pearl was probably the best decision (after the proposal, obviously) that we made in this entire wedding."
"....Petite Pearl Events is an outstanding company that shows expertise professionalism in all that they do. Alex and I were lucky enough to work first hand with Margot. Her responses to all messages were incredibly prompt from the start of contact...She was personable, cared about creating a friendship and strong bond, and most importantly loyal to us in ways that will be remembered forever...."
"Margot made our wedding so beautiful, our guests felt like they were on a movie set. She was incredibly professional, patient, and very aware of our budget. I would recommend Petite Pearl to any engaged couple. It was by far the best money I spent on the wedding. Thank you so much to Margot and Petite Pearl!!!"
"Gordon and Jessica took the time to listen to all of our ideas and get a sense of our vision. They provided advice, answered all questions and helped us consider all of the details we would not have thought of on our own. They repeatedly offered to go above and beyond if we needed anything. I never felt worried about how things would turn out as I knew we were in great hands. "
