Created Lovely Events was established in 2013 in Kelowna, BC and has now thoughtfully designed and planned over 200 outdoor weddings. You believe there is no place as beautiful as the Okanagan Valley to get married, and we do too. That’s why we design your wedding not just with you in mind, but your entire guest experience. From welcome events, rehearsal dinners in the vineyard, champagne toasts upon ceremony arrival, live music & dancing under the stars, we’re here to ensure your guests fall in love with this place as much as you have. We only offer full planning services in order to alleviate you from any and all stress- so that all these amazing plans are for you to enjoy too. Let’s get started.
Created Lovely began in 2013 but it really feels like it started long before that. It’s been a long awaited extension of my heart to own a company that allows me to express my love for romance and beautiful spaces. My style can be best described as minimalist, effortlessly feminine, and inviting. I love nature, in a glamping sort of way. And I believe there’s no greater gift you can give people than your time- a balance I strive to create with my business and personal life. And when I’m not working (well… even when I am) you can find me with my husband, Royce Sihlis, who just happens to be one talented wedding + outdoor lifestyle photographer. We didn’t meet in the industry, though fate would have it that an aspiring wedding planner and photographer would meet at a university coffee house night and go on to push each other to pursue their wildest dreams. Together, we’re creating a lovely life that our son and daughter can look up to.
PART OF A
The moment the bride and groom see their reception for the first time. I think we spend so much time imagining what our wedding day will look and feel like, and that’s the moment where it sinks in that this day is truly theirs to enjoy.
Morning coffee with my husband while our kids play, Thursday date days, road trips to the ocean, and creating moments that look as good as they feel every day.
Carla has been with Created Lovely since 2018 and was undeniably an immediate hire to our team. She’s a mom of five, so it’s safe to say her multi-tasking abilities are beyond compare. Carla handles much of the office back end work and you can find her upfront and center on a wedding day running the decor setup and assisting Nikki throughout the day.
PART OF A
When the Bride & Groom’s eyes meet for the first time and the love is palpable to everyone around. (I also love filling the day with as many unique sentiments as possible!)
Each summer Created Lovely Events hires creative, detail-oriented, and hardworking staffto assist on wedding day décor set-up and teardown. With their help, every beautiful design comes to life.
