Kelowna Wedding Photographer | White Orchid Wedding Consulting

As a Kelowna Wedding Photographer, I have decided to interview some of the vendors that I have had the pleasure of working with when we are both a part of someone’s big day! This is a fun way for you, as a soon-to-be bride, a couple, or even those of you who just happened to stumble across this blog, to get to know who the people are behind these brilliant companies, and to get a personal view of what they went through to get to where they are today.


VENDOR: White Orchid Wedding Consulting

White Orchid Wedding Consulting is a boutique Kelowna wedding planning company based in the Okanagan.  They understand that each couple is unique and deserves a beautiful, fresh, and inspired celebration that represents their individuality! 

I asked Shawna, the owner of White Orchid, a few questions

Who inspires you?


Event Planner to the Star – Mindy Weiss. She wrote a book that has really helped me become a better wedding planner. Her events are always very unique and different; I would love to be apart of her team for a week!

Amazing florist – Karen Tran. She is super creative and has very inspirational designs that she comes up with. I am jealous that she travels all over the world for her work. That would be fantastic!


How did you get started in Wedding Planning?


For a long time in my life I didn’t know what I “wanted to be”.  As I was planning my own wedding, I thought it was super fun. And it challenged me in both creative and organizational ways. After, it was over I was actually sad – and wanted to keep planning. So, I did… I took the plunge and started my own business, that was 7 years ago and look where I am today!!!


What has been my proudest Accomplishment?


Building my business, solely from 1 wedding in a summer to where I am now, 25 Weddings!! And still growing!!
