Kootenay Wedding Planner, Christine Hunter

The Head Wedding Planner

Christine Hunter is no stranger to producing events. She has held down many pinnacle roles for some of Canada’s most prestigious music festivals, events, conferences and award panels. Recently elected to the Board of Directors for the Canadian Live Music Association & MusicBC, she is now recognized on a national and provincial level for her expertise. Her experience is primarily in large-scale event management and her 18 years of experience and knowledge drive her on-going career in festival and event management and now Wedding Planning, Design & Decor and Venue Management. She is a strategic thinker capable of managing multiple responsibilities in high-pressure environments and she is the embodiment of an experienced festival and event producer. While she has been operating the Entertainment Department at Shambhala Music Festival for over a decade, her interest in producing weddings at the Salmo River Ranch, came to fruition upon the arrival of COVID19. Thinking of ways to keep her passion alive, she approached the festival with the idea of offering wedding planning & venue services.
