An alternative to large bridal expos

Hustle & Heart Events is very proud to present Nanaimo's first Pop-Up Bridal Fair. This event is a more intimate experience, compared to large expos which can often be overwhelming, crowded and expensive. My goal is to showcase some incredible local vendors whom I respect and personally refer to my clients, as well as feature a gorgeous local venue who is making a name for themselves in the Vancouver Island Wedding scene.  I also aim to provide more information regarding Wedding Coordinators and show how valuable we truly are when it comes to making your big day perfect.

The Venue

Chateau Wolff Estates Winery

Chateau Wolff Estate is a family run, boutique wine producer in Nanaimo, British Columbia. Nestled in the heart of Nanaimo, this beautiful winery offers rolling hills filled with some of the oldest vines on Vancouver Island, surrounded by the gorgeous views of Mount Benson. They grow and produce all of their own wine, and feature wine tasting Saturdays and Sundays from 12pm - 4pm. This venue is currently equipped to host wedding ceremonies in their natural, lush meadow setting, featuring a natural aisle through the vines to the ceremony space. What a perfect setting for a Pop Up Bridal Fair!

Shantina Rae Photography

"Photography is more than just "something" I am passionate about. It is stopping that very small window in time that you can never have back. A moment that you never want to forget. For myself, getting that split second when my beautiful children smile, laugh or are experiencing something new for the first time; on camera... oh those moments are so dear to my heart. Especially since we all know how fast time passes and how quickly they grow up. To save those, to hold onto the emotion is just, WELL, remarkable. And to capture that for others is just as incredible. To make others feel something when they look through my photos is what moves me."

Decor By Nature

Decor by Nature naturally came about when I started painting art for my son’s nursery. I couldn’t find exactly what I had envisioned for his nursery, and after finishing that project I knew I had to keep creating!

I am inspired by adventure and travel, the beautiful West Coast, animals and nature. And I love a good inspirational quote! it warms my heart to see people connect with my art and it’s an honor when people choose to have my art in their home.

When I’m not designing and making I’m hanging out with my three boys (all 5 years and under!), husband and fur babies.
