About Us

The perfect place to Marry the love of your life

We are the Tofino wedding planners & designers who have helped hundreds of couples tie the knot in stunning Tofino and Ucluelet.

Over the years, we’ve scaled cliffs with extension cords, piggybacked brides above the tide at Middle Beach, and called in favours with the locals so that the happy couple could have just one more last dance together.

I came to Tofino for a school co-op in 2013 and what was supposed to be a couple months in this beautiful, remote town, has turned into nearly a decade of living in paradise. I met my partner Neil here and when I’m not getting a bride or groom down the aisle, you can usually find us on the beach with our little fur child; Rue. I feel so grateful to live amongst such an amazing community and even more grateful for our Wedding Industry here. They have truly become like family to me.

Rare Earth Wedding Event Production was founded in 2010 by my dear friend and mentor Sheila Orchiston. I have had the pleasure of working with & learning from Sheila over the last 6 years and we made some amazing memories together and with our Wedding couples. I look forward to creating more beautiful moments doing what I love, along the shores of the Pacific Ocean.

While Tofino affords the backdrops of your dreams, to get a wedding just right here calls for local knowledge and relationships as well as a little trailer stocked to the ceiling with everything a girl or guy could need to make the day both comfortable, beautiful and, completely you.

As professional Tofino wedding planners passionate about ensuring your day is everything you could want and more, we bring you our connections and our creativity, our coordination and our heart. We’re proud to have developed a reputation with venue operators and our fellow vendors for planning and designing flawless, beautiful weddings—and we can’t wait to put ourselves to work for you.

Over the years, we have created just about every kind of wedding you could imagine, from simple boho elopements on the beach, extravagant modern affairs by the pier, or glamping adventure weddings… we do it all. We’re proud to specialize in wedding design and adventure elopements.
