Created Lovely Events was established in 2013 in Kelowna, BC and has now thoughtfully designed and planned over 100 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 plan 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. 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.


wedding day

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.

I’m Linnaea— Nikki’s right hand woman and the Associate Planner with Created Lovely. I’m a wife, mother of 4, and master list maker. Crossing items off my to-do list makes my heart sing and naturally wedding planning became a dream career. When I’m not working, you can find me training for triathlons, paddle boarding and hiking with my family.


wedding day

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!)
