About Love By Lynzie
Since 2011, we have been working with couples, companies and brands alike, turning their stories into tangible event experiences and activations. Our team has worked on hundreds of weddings, events and creative projects in both Toronto and Muskoka, maintaining loyal relationships with some of Toronto’s best event, wedding and design vendors. We believe the best way to celebrate is in a stress-free, joyful environment.
Love By Lynzie also prides itself on being the originator of The Pop-Up Chapel Co.– a sustainable and charitable alternative to getting married at city hall where 10 couples marry in one day.
Our Founder and Creative Director, Lynzie Kent, is an accomplished serial entrepreneur who is consistently sought after for speaking engagements and expert advice on experiential event design, entrepreneurialism in creative industries and modernizing the wedding space.
Our work has taken us across the globe and has been published internationally in Wedding Bells, Wedluxe, Today’s Bride, as well as many online publications including Style Me Pretty, Green Wedding Shoes and CBC Life.
We’ll work anywhere, but we feel most at home serving Toronto, Southern Ontario and Muskoka.

Our ValuesOur commitment to honesty and authenticity bleeds into all aspects of our work at Love by Lynzie. We believe planning celebrations can connect to these deeper values of ours, but also to sustainability, inclusivity and using our gifts to contribute to a better society. Over the last 4 years, Through The Pop-Up Chapel Co. we’ve raised over $55,000 for local charities. We consistently volunteer as a team with local organizations and make donations to organizations that support the environment, marginalized youth and children. We attempt to upcycle, reuse, or work with thrifted materials in much of our decor and products.
This year, we’ve made a commitment to diversifying our preferred vendor portfolio by growing our relationships with BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ owned businesses, but also giving our clients the resources to identify these businesses and choose to support them. When you are choosing to work with us, you’re choosing an ethical company committed to redefining an industry that is so often considered wasteful and exclusive.
