Since 2013, I have worked tirelessly to build the reputable and seasoned wedding planning company Wonderstruck has become today. I cherish the friendships I create with my couples, and will never stop feeling thankful for each client who trusts me to join them on their journey to "I do."
As a planner, I am meticulous and organized, with an unwavering attention to detail. As a designer, I create fine art designs, and work with the most trusted artisans and vendors in the industry. If you know exactly what you want, I will be your resource guide. If you are lost for inspiration, I will be your muse. I am whatever I need to be, to create an experience that leaves both you, and your guests, wonderstruck.
Although I have an extensive background in corporate events, I have always been a romantic at heart. As a planner and designer, I have found myself dotting the map, collecting inspiration from around the world. Those experiences, combined with my passion for bringing beautiful moments to fruition, forms the ethos behind my business.
Based in Vancouver, Canada, I specialize in destination weddings, and will happily travel to any location worldwide. When I'm not breathing weddings, I am likely baking up a storm, on a culinary adventure, or building memories with my husband and three kitties.
"Ariel notices every detail, is so knowledgeable, and respectful of opinions and different cultures. She also has a great eye for design. There was never a single moment where we felt worried or stressed or confused. Ariel is an excellent communicator and goes above and beyond to ensure everything is as perfect as perfect can be! My mom is extremely picky and difficult to please - and she could not stop raving about how much she loves Ariel and how appreciative she was of everything Ariel did for us on our wedding day."
