Jillian Buchanan has lived in the beautiful south Okanagan since 2000.  She grew up in the suburbs of Vancouver but when she visited the Okanagan for the summer she knew this was home.  Jillian owned her own business for 12 years in Osoyoos and once she decided to make a change she knew she was moving up to the Naramata Bench.  She has always loved Naramata and had visited the area quite often over the years.  

Jillian loves fashion and design.  In her previous retail business she organized and executed many fashion shows, music events and charity functions.  Jillian is a very organized individual and her attention to detail shines through in her work and won’t go unnoticed at any event.

Tammi Foster has been in Naramata since 1999, that is when she decided to move her family to the Okanagan from the big city for a more relaxed lifestyle.  After being surrounded by the many beautiful vineyards that Naramata had to offer, it was hard for her to deny her growing interest in the local wine industry.  Tammi became co-owner of Van Westen Vineyards in 2004 and she discovered her passion was in marketing and planning the many wine events the winery was a part of.

Tammi also became heavily involved with the Naramata Bench Winery Association and sat as a director at large for a number of years as well as assisting with the coordination of the ever so popular Tailgate party since 2006.

Tammi’s wedding planning career started working exclusively with the Naramata Heritage Inn & Spa. Since then her passion has evolved and she decided to expand her horizons and branch out to all venues in and around Naramata.  Tammi will ensure that your event is a once in a lifetime celebration that guests will remember forever.
