Meet the Team

Candisse McCormick

Co-Owner & Planner

I have always had a strong passion and hidden talent for event planning along with a true desire to work with people. In wanting to take this from a hobby to a career I combined my passion with my own personal style and started Envious Events. The most rewarding part of being an event planner is having the opportunity to work so closely with clients who have such diverse personalities, cultures and families is awe-inspiring. It is a very rewarding job and puts a smile on my face daily, which reminds me everyday that I made the right choice in starting up my own business.

Craziest Hobby
I know how to knit & crochet, thanks to my Grandma Laura.  So you might find me whipping up a baby blanket or some other item to give for gifts to friends and family.  Nothing says love like a homemade gift in my eyes.

Greatest Accomplishment
This may be odd…but being alive is my greatest accomplishment.  When I was born I was the “lucky” receiver of the genetics that make a neuromuscular disorder called Spinal Muscular Atrophy. My parents we’re informed that I wouldn’t live to be 9, yet as of 2013 I am 30 years old and not showing any signs of leaving this world anytime soon.

Greatest Fear
Grasshoppers. They’re just gross and creepy, okay?
I am a…

  • lover of all things pink
  • hopeless romantic
  • Jelly Belly addict
  • country music fan for life
  • scaredy cat when it comes to horror movies

In my past life I think I was…

A counsellor/therapist. Because I seem to attract people who will confide in me or ask me for advice, then come back to me and inform me that I was right.

Breanna Driedger

Co-Owner & Planner

Hey there, my name is Breanna Driedger. I grew up in the beautiful Foothills of Alberta. I moved to Kelowna BC in 2014 to attend the Centre for Arts and Technology; where I graduated from the Events and Promotional Management program in December of 2014.

My favorite aspect of events is brain storming the theme and décor ideas. I focus on having immense attention to detail to enhance creative themes for all types of social events.

Working with Envious Events provides me the opportunity to connect with clients and create monumental events throughout the foothills. I want to plan events that people don’t normally expect; keeping things renewed and trending.

Craziest Hobby

Since the age of five I have been living in the kitchen. I love to cook while creating my own recipes. At one point I aspired to have my own cooking TV show. No wonder I have so many friends, they always know that there will be fantastic food with me around.

Greatest Accomplishment

I was a member of the 4-H program for 9 years in which I did photography, rabbit and performing arts projects. Through many 4-H activities and involvements I won the 4-H Selections trip to Ottawa; The National Citizenship Seminar. I feel very proud to have been able to attend such a rewarding and educational trip.

Greatest Fear

I am terrified of tornadoes, well actually I really dislike all wind. Guess I am never moving to Lethbridge.

I am a…

  • Lover of all things purple
  • Hopeless romantic
  • Chocolate addict
  • Country music fan for life
  • Hates all ‘creepy crawlies’

In my past life I think I was…

An artist or photographer. I have a different outlook in life, a creative edge that lets me see things in a new unique matter.
