Event Coordinator - Bethany Armstrong
I started my road of learning to be a Wedding Coordinator in 2006, and by 2009 I was happy to start and introduce my own business, Peace of Mind Weddings. What a ride it has been over the years getting to meet the most amazing couples.

Adding the Okanagan Bridal Expo Coordination in 2011 to my life has been such an excitement and thrill! Every year I get to stay in touch with all the established and new vendors in the industry, keeping me in the loop. I am always amazed at what the Okanagan Valley has to offer for services and talent!

In 2018 after some hard work and training I opened up my very own franchise in Penticton, Smooth Effects Laser Hair Removal. Wow has this ever been a blast!!! Working with the top in the industry is always something I work for and believe in to give the absolute best service we can offer.

Being so busy with all my businesses, and every year the wedding industry keeps getting busier, I have been so lucky to bring on a partner for Peace of Mind Weddings and the Okanagan Bridal Expo, everyone please say hi to Jessica Levitt!! She is very talented and I am so pumped you get to have her skills and wonderful outgoing personality to work with! We have so much fun together! Having her by my side, we know we are able to keep up with the best service we can give for everyone.

I stay very busy with all my businesses and my daughter by my side. I smile everyday when I wake up knowing how wonderful my life is and how I am so lucky to have everyone I know working with me and around me. The Okanagan Valley will always be my home; I’m so in love with it.

I think I have always been a planner! I planned my own wedding in 8 short weeks. I have been in the bridal world for over 10 years now and could not feel more at home stepping up to help Bethany with Peace of Mind and the Okanagan Bridal Expo. We love working with beautiful couples and all the amazing vendors in the Okanagan.

I have been working at Bridal Shows for many years between modelling in the fashion show in my younger years to being a part of my families bridal store in Red Deer and now my own in Vernon, Victoria Lane Brides. Having my mother as a partner in the shop gives me the time to take on this new partnership.

Working with Beth has just been natural... we seem to think alike!
We look forward to bringing our best this year and for many more to come!

I am an Okanagan country girl and I have had the pleasure of living all over the Okanagan Valley. I have always had a passion for events; especially our local ones. I moved to Kelowna to feed my passion of learning about events and the Okanagan Bridal expo was one of the first volunteer opportunities that I was able to take advantage of. When I arrived to be a “Mover and Shaker” I had no real idea what I was getting myself into. My volunteer shift was four hours but I was having so much fun that I stayed on to see the entire event unfold. I was floored when the head event coordinators Bethany Armstrong and Winona Phillips took me aside at the end of the night and thanked me for my energy and enthusiasm. I have just graduated with my Event and Promotions Management Diploma from the Centre for Arts and Technology and I cannot wait to see what new opportunities are around the corner!
