Shari Grenier has been making fairy tales come true since 1996, when she opened Sandcastles and began planning storybook weddings for her clients. Since then, Shari has become a highly sought-after wedding planner with the ability to turn any couple’s dream wedding into reality.
In 2018, Shari became licensed to officiate at wedding ceremonies, and has since become ordained clergy with the Community Catholic Church of Canada. Early in 2020, her husband, Dave Grenier, became licensed to perform weddings, thereby giving couples the option of a male or female officiant. In addition, Dave and Shari are able to act as each other’s backup in case of emergency.
In addition to his degree in computer science, Dave has his Project Management Professional certification. He handles our corporate events, in addition to performing wedding ceremonies. He is passionate about motorcycles, and he would be pleased to show up on his bike to marry you on yours!
Dave and Shari were high school sweethearts, reunited and married in 2015, so they recognize romance when they see it! The Sandcastles magic has touched such venues as The Old Mill, the Botanical Gardens in Burlington, Casa Loma, and Estates of Sunnybrook… as well as beautiful weddings at private homes!
Now in their 60s, Dave and Shari are concentrating on officiating weddings. This gives them the time they need to train, coach and mentor the next generation of young planners!
