I’m Corina

And I’m the UN-Wedding Planner

A multi-passionate, creative rebel, dedicated to helping you have a wedding experience inspired by what really matters

Hello!

 

 

 

 

 

Let’s Be real:

Not everyone is into the big, traditional, fairy tale wedding

What if. . .

You didn’t have to spend thousands of $$$ on guests you don’t even know or like?

You could get married anywhere, any time, and in whatever way you want?

You had total permission to do what you really want with your wedding?

your wedding stood out from every other because it wasn’t
typical?

WHAT WOULD YOU DO DIFFERENTLY?

10 years ago, I was sitting where you are now…

I was engaged and planning my wedding

I was so excited to marry my hubby, but I was under a f*ck tonne of pressure to have a big, traditional wedding.

My family expected it and society told me I had to have it, so I thought that it was the only option.

So that’s exactly what happened. I had a big, traditional wedding.

We hosted 150 people, wed in a beautiful white church, I wore a white dress, had a reception at a banquet hall, and followed pretty much every tradition to the letter.

While I wouldn’t go back and do it over again (after all I did get to marry my best friend!) when I look back now I realize that the vast majority of those guests were people that I barely knew. Invited because of a brief connection in time or blood, not because of what their relationship meant to me.

My perspective changed when I lost my dad and one of my best friends within mere days of each other a couple of years after my wedding. And as I’m sure you can guess, when the sh*t hit the fan, only a small handful of those guests were there for me.

It was then that I realized that all of the expectations around weddings are total bullsh*t. That all the rules and traditions and what everyone else wants is meaningless.

This is why I created the Un-Wedding Movement.

Over the past 6 years, I’ve dedicated myself to helping engaged people create a wedding where nothing is done because “that’s the way it’s always been done.

Instead, we dig deep, figure out what really matters, and then create a wedding that’s meaningful, unique, and personal.

Anything but Typical

Corina’s professionalism and reliability made working with her a pleasure. She provided us with advice, guidance, contacts, and really paid attention to the details. The wedding planning process for us was relatively stress-free because we knew she had our backs. We didn’t worry about any logistics on the day of because she had it taken care of. Highly recommend!

Meet the Team

Corina Waldie | WPICC, DWC, CIP

Founder & Chief Un-Wedding Experience Designer

Pronouns: She/Her

Hi there!  I’m Corina, Founder of YPF Weddings & Co. and the visionary behind the Un-Wedding Movement. It’s so nice to meet you and I’m thrilled that you’re here.

Just in case you can’t tell, I’m definitely NOT your average wedding planner. I’m a fearless, bold, colour-loving, multi-passionate creative b*tch meets that friend that’s got your back and is not afraid to tell you the truth. Planning amazing experiences is my superpower, and I love the impact that I get to make in the lives of my clients. 

I have a passion for planning weddings that are fun, uniquely personal, and at least a little unorthodox.

I currently live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada with my husband, Jonathan (better known as Dear). When I’m not planning weddings, I love to cook and bake, play video & board games, crochet, and do yoga. I’m a confessed Starbucks addict and history nerd.  I’ve got a permanent travel bug, and my passport and suitcase are always on standby, ready to find an adventure at a moment’s notice. 

 And yes, I know my stuff…

 

Hey there! I’m Sydney, YPF’s People & Operations Officer or the P.O.O. – Yeah, that’s right – I’m the Sh*t.

I would describe myself as half snooty-gentry-type-in-designer-clothes-perusing-art-at-a-prestigious-wood-panelled-art-museum and half bridge troll in the woods.

Half freak, half geek. I’m into pretty much everything and am happiest when having conversations with people about their passions.

After a decade working in the summer camp world – reinforced with stints in education, tourism, retail, food service, disability advocacy, community organizing, and film & television – I realized I loved creating joyful experiences and setting the stage for some pretty epic memory building.

I was certified as a wedding planner by the Wedding Planner’s Institute of Canada in 2016 and finally found Corina as my mentor in 2019. She’s the Picard to my Ryker, and there’s no looking back.

When not obsessing over progressive, collaborative business practices or how to create complete immersion in an event, I like to hide in my cave (a.k.a. basement apartment) with books, art, music, and my cat, Berlioz.

I’m anti-racism, anti-ableism, pro-land-back, pro-weed, pro-gay, pro-choice, pro-trans, pro-fat, and pro-hoe. In the words of Bob Dylan, “Either be groovy or leave, man.”
