Your Special Event Experts: Brad & Ashley Wiebe
As children we live to role play the things we love. While friends were modelling Doctors, Teachers or "playing house", I was the young girl that "played wedding". It was something I dreamed of and planned until my own wedding day would arrive. I have been blessed with many opportunities to plan and be involved with various weddings throughout my adult life and I believe that for myself these were God given opportunities to practise my gift. My husband of 12 years has selflessly come alongside my passion and works hard to see this given dream come to fruition. We are family run and look forward to hosting your dream wedding.
“Nothing can bring a real sense of security into the home except true love”
