Jenna Afanasiff

{owner and principal planner}

I’ve been a wedding planner in Vancouver since 2009, when I launched Revel Events and booked my very first wedding clients. Planning romantic, fun, and customized weddings for couples who are madly in love is my passion!

When you book your wedding with Revel Events, I’ll be the person you plan with and the person who is there with you on your wedding day. I only take on one wedding client per weekend, so you won’t have to compete for my time and attention in the days leading up to your wedding–I’m all yours!

Fun Facts about Jenna

Before I started planning weddings, I was on the road to becoming a university professor. I have two degrees in English Literature, so if you need to quote Shakespeare, write an ode, or find grammatical errors in something you’ve written, I’m your gal!

Orcas are my spirit animal. I’ve had recurring dreams about swimming with orcas since I was a small child, and I have been known to cry when I see them in the wild.

I believe that there are few situations in life that can’t be made better by adding cheese and/or beer.

I am an enthusiastic and highly competitive board-gamer. However, I should admit that I have been accused of only enjoying board games when I’m winning.

←This is me on my amazing wedding day. I planned my own wedding (of course!) but had amazing Day-of Coordinators on hand to take care of all the details—it is thanks to them that we were able to relax and enjoy every beautiful moment!
