Stephanie SchmitWedding Producer
Stephanie joined Lynn Fletcher Weddings bringing with her years of experience in the Calgary bridal industry. Her path began focusing on the fashion side of the industry. Internationally trained in bridal fashion, trends, and etiquette, it wasn’t long before Stephanie knew she wanted to apply her knowledge and exposure of the couture bridal industry in a more intimate way. Inspired by the many New York designer runway shows she attended, she began choreographing fashion shows, including Calgary’s well known Wedding Fair. She soon discovered her true passion was in the planning, creating, designing and executing of stunning and unique weddings. Stephanie’s confident can-do attitude, ability to multitask, and professionalism is matched by her genuine interest in the bride and groom. She is invested in recognizing what is truly important to the couple, making their vision a reality on the most memorable day of their lives.
How We Work
It all starts with listening. Then with the boundless enthusiasm of true romantics, we get to know each couple, ensuring that their day is a true reflection of who they are. We have an intuitive instinct for seeing and understanding the needs and desires of our brides and grooms, even when they sometimes do not know themselves. It often is difficult to tell who is more excited about the wedding — the LFW team or our clients. We truly are invested in helping you create YOUR vision for day with no stress, lots of fun, and most of all, a team who genuinely cares about making it a unique personalized experience for you.
The entire LFW team plays an active role in the event industry attending international training conferences and wedding shows worldwide to ensure that they stay on top of the latest trends and best ideas in the industry.
