The Mint Julep Story

Jacqui Beattie – Owner


My name is Jacqui and I am a creative and down-to-earth wedding and events planner. I am inspired everyday by the beauty in nature and in people and am fortunate to have a career that allows me to share in these very things while seeing the world. I was born in Sydney Australia, where my ticket to travel came in the form of a Marketing, Tourism and Hospitality Management degree that allowed me to work in some truly amazing places; from London, to Austria, the Caribbean, Lord Howe Island and the one place I came back to time and time again—Kelowna, BC. I love this little corner of the world.

Over the years I have worked for large event planning companies including Disney Cruise Lines and the Sydney Convention Centre. What I’ve discovered over the years is that my true passion lies in planning intimate events for people (just like you) as you celebrate the moments in your life that really matter — from exchanging rings with your soul mate, to the birth of your first, or the gathering of your most treasured family and friends.

Today, as a certified wedding planner and owner of Mint Julep Creative Events, I get to do just that; bringing what I’ve learnt— in my travels and event creation —to you and those you care about most. I look forward to working closely with you to bring your vision for your wedding or event to life, because for me, that’s what Mint Julep is all about.

Enough about me. SAY HELLO. I can’t wait to hear what you have in mind.
