Who Are We and What Do We Do?

Shari Grenier has been making fairy tales come true since 1996, when she became a certified wedding planner through Weddings Beautiful Worldwide, 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.

Many years later, she reconnected with her high-school boyfriend, Dave Grenier, and they were married in 2015. Shari continued planning dream weddings until Covid hit, and returned afterwards offering couples a new way to plan: by doing it themselves, with expert coaching provided by Sandcastles!

Dave and Shari are both ordained clergy with the Community Catholic Church of Canada, 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! We call him the Rev’d Up Rev!

The Sandcastles magic has touched weddings at such venues as The Old Mill, the Botanical Gardens in Burlington, Millcroft Inn, Casa Loma,  Toronto’s Distillery District, and Estates of Sunnybrook… as well as beautiful weddings at private homes, country clubs , and park settings!
