who we are

emerson & co


We create personal, curated weddings for the couples who are excited about celebrating with all of the people they love.

We don’t take this responsibility lightly and we have 7 years of experience behind us to help. We’ve dealt with everything from unruly guests to natural disasters.

We love working alongside our clients. We get to know you – your likes and dislikes, colour preferences, style, favourite music –

and curate a team of vendors that have similar tastes and personalities so that you feel supported and confident on your wedding day.

From the first meeting until the last song of the night, whether you’re planning a rustic, backyard wedding or a dramatic, ballroom affair, we have one mission:

Executing your vision just like you imagined it.


Kari Bedford

Owner, Lead Planner and Designer

I’m a big fan of weddings. My favourite part is the moment before the bride walks down the aisle. The anticipation is palpable, the guests are silent but eager, the bride’s heart is racing, and the groom is glancing at his best man for one more “you can do this, buddy”. Then the doors open, the bride steps out, and everybody lets out the breath they were holding. I love it.

Besides being a wedding planner, I’m also a wife to Eric, who married me at my favourite wedding to date in 2008, and a mom to a beautiful girl named Emerson.

Now, it’s only fair that I get to learn more about you, so
send me a note and I’ll buy you a coffee.

The Team

We have a team of lovely, dedicated, and hard working professionals.  We can't wait for you to meet them.
