Increasingly people are choosing to celebrate the life of a deceased loved one with an event for family and friends in addition to a formal funeral service. It is an opportunity to tell the story of a special person who has touched the lives of all those who loved them. We are a full-service Celebration of Life event planning company whose team will customize, create and coordinate amazingly unique Celebration of Life events which will be unforgettable. We bring to all of our Celebration of Life events, no matter what the size of attendance, a winning array of professionalism, compassion and creativity with a sharp eye and commitment to detail.
Celebrating life means acknowledging the life of the person who died. It means applauding their life and rejoicing in the fact that they lived.
A Celebration of Life event can be themed around anything, for honouring anyone. The Celebration of Life event is only limited by one’s imagination. This is a loving event to honour someone who has passed away. It is also a way for family and guests to connect with each other and to share the memories of that special person.
This website is dedicated to one of our best friends, Albert Schrik, who died in Palm Springs on March 11th, 2018, eleven days after attending our daughter's wedding in Whistler, B.C.

WHO, WHERE AND HOW
Who is the celebration of life for? While it is important to celebrate the life of the deceased, you need to remember that the event is not for them. Its main purpose is to allow the family to say goodbye, give them closure, and begin the healing process.
Where will this event take place? A celebration of life can take place just about anywhere. Many families often hold them at a ball room of a yacht club, golf club, hotel or the deceased’s home as these venues often offer a beautiful space for family and friends to gather. In the Okanagan Valley there are many vineyards that could act as a beautiful venue.
How will you honour your loved one at the event? This is when you can begin thinking about what you would like the celebration to include.
