Cakes, Treats & Delicious Things:
Schur to Please – Boutique Cakery : Schurtoplease.com
As a wedding DJ I get to sample so many amazing meals, wines and craft cocktails…….but nothing beats the desserts. I love to service events where Schur to Please are the masterminds behind the cake and treat table. Their amazing cake pops have sugared me up and kept me pumped into the wee hours of the morning……more than once. They also have all the state of the art gadgets like 3-d printers to make custom cake toppers to make your cake table the new photobooth backdrop 😉
Photographers and attention to detail specialists:
Photos by Tash: www.facebook.com/https://Tasha Knight Photography and Design
Natasha Knight is one of the Islands hidden gems. Not a super “exposed” advertiser (See what I did there hahahaha) she is subtly one of the most under appreciated and talented photographers on the Island. Her portfolio shows her talents at editing but what I can say from working a number of events with Tash is her attention to detail is amazing and she takes charge of moments to ensure “that shot” is achieved.
Nicole Durkan Photography: nicoledurkanphotography.com
I have done some fun weddings with Nikki, and she is a lot of laughs. Her style is unique and she is a lot of fun. A great local small business I encourage you to check out her site and her shots 🙂 One great thing about Nicole is she prices every event as unique, which allows her to look at all the facets of your needs then determine a price that is tailored to your budget as opposed to “package prices” that are pre-set.
Marlboro Wang : marlborowangphoto.com
A pleasure to work events with! Marlboro is always on the go looking for shots and angles, taking amazing pics of even the smallest details like wedding favors on tables, the place settings, and other memories your will treasure. He is also a videographer so two birds can be…………….. well we won’t be killing any birds here but he handles multiple duties hahaha. Check him out for sure.
Laura Bryant : coastlinelivingphotography.com
A total “Islander” and “Sookie” so you know your getting those kick butt rustic yet trendy snap shots you’re crazing! Another “Jill of all trades” as they also handle photo booth duties as well the traditional way with props, dressup gear and actual photos!!! With multiple packages offered I am sure Laura has one that suits your needs!!!
DJ’s & Sound Specialists … If I am unavailable of course
DJ Clinton : capitalcitydjs.ca
Clinton is one of Vancouver Islands most talented DJ’s without a doubt. With many years DJ’ing in clubs in Greater Victoria, DJing events with Celebrities as the opener, there isn’t much he hasn’t done. The best thing about Clinton’s talents is he is an awesome all around guy, and in this industry that is important because if there is something someone at your event forgot to do…..Clinton is the type to step up and add that to his list of things no questions asked. It is always a pleasure for me to hear how happy brides are with the service , and they often shoot me a message thanking me for referring them to Clinton. That says enough about the guy.
DJ Glenn Lewis : https://www.lsdj.ca/
A life long music aficionado, besides being a stellar DJ Glenn plays and studies multiple instruments. Away from the wedding scene Glenn is a department manager at Long and Mcquade, where of all things…………..HE’S IN CHARGE OF DJ AND EVENT RENTALS!!! What this means is no matter what need/want your heart desires for your big day (mic for officiant, multiple wireless mic, certain lighting or effects) Glenn can make sure you have it covered!!! Glenn has amazing customer service skills and follows up with clients, assuring no one is ever left high and dry. Clinton and Glenn are always the DJs I refer my overflow clients too as I know they are in excellent hands and are going to call me after their event and say “Thank you PTK, that guy you sent me to was awesome!!!”
DJ Ron Larsen : www.djpro.ca
In our industry reputation is everything, may it be via word of mouth, reviews or years of experience…..Ron checks these boxes. Often visible at Wedding shows and exhibitions Ron is a solid choice for your wedding day needs. With years of experience as a DJ on the radio, and armed with a outgoing and engaging personality its clear why I feel safe leaving brides in his hands………..well music and DJ service wise only of course.

Day or coordinators….The directors who run the show and make it perfect
Joan Russell : Amazing Moments https://www.amazingmomentevents.com/
Joan and her crew are amazing at what they do!!! I have seen some vibrant color combinations that were visions directly taken from the brides head to reality, no detail missed and Joan and her crew bring an emphatic energy to every room they do (Newfies can do that stuff lol) They are a pleasure to work with and are a true asset to the Victoria wedding scene.
Emma McCormick : Emma McCormick Creative Planning & Production http://emmamccormick.com/
If you have been to wedding shows or some of the amazing events around Greater Victoria you have more than likely seen Emma’s work. I major player in the Wedding industry on Vancouver Island her creative touches, cutting edge creativity and attention to detail put her featured events and weddings over the top. A pleasure to work with and a supporter of local business’s here in Victoria, I never hesitate to recommend Emma to anyone looking for unquestionable style for their event.
Kimberly Solecki : Borrowed & Blue Events https://www.borrowedandblueevents.ca/
Kim is one of my favorite “Day Of” / Wedding & Event Planners to work with. She is a energizer bunny who is meticulous with the details……..things you and your guests will appreciate. One of the attributes that stands out when I have watched Kim work in the past is her “take charge” attitude, she isn’t afraid to make sure venues give you what you’re paying for and keep any stresses off the bride and groom. Respected in the industry by her peers, you cannot go wrong booking with this lady if you want a stress free, and beautiful organized day.
Sandra Long : Decorate Victoria http://www.decoratevictoria.com/
Sandra and her team are legendary on the Island wedding scene. Innovators of the imagination!!! I have seen living walls, amazing greenery, enchanted table decorations……and that was just one wedding! (And I have done many wedding with Sandy). Their arsenal of available decorations housed in over 10,000 square feet of warehouse makes bringing pretty much any vision to reality. Consummate professionals and highly respected in the industry, Sandra weddings are always spectacular and breath taking. For me, shes just kinda like that really cool awesome mom you wish you had 😉
