    Liz Is Fantastic!

    Liz was very helpful with scheduling meetings with us throughout the pandemic to ensure that all of our questions and concerns were taken care of before our big day. She is wonderful!

    Best decision I’ve made!

    Liz is by far the best investment I have made during my wedding planning experience and it’s not even my wedding day yet! She has been there for me every step of the way to help me navigate the crazy waters of event planning. She’s so easy to reach and responds very quickly to all your calls/emails. She really supports you through all the decisions from “is there anything else I should ask this vendor before I book them?” to “I just need to talk this out cause I’m starting to feel overwhelmed!”. I would 100% recommend her because she has truly been a godsend and gives me so much peace of mind knowing my wedding day will run smoothly with her there to run the show.

    Alfresco Weddings and Events's reply:

    Dianna, I can't tell you enough how much I appreciate your kind words! It made my day!
    I can't wait to see you walk down the aisle!

    Liz was wonderful!

    When me and my husband decided to get married, we decided to do it at the Millbrook Cathedral because it was close to his hometown and of how unique the venue was. Liz met us for our tour and she was so warm and I felt that she was personally invested in our special day.

    Last year, we thought our wedding wasn’t going to be impeded by COVID restrictions. I just felt like I was getting bad news, and I was super thankful that I had hired Liz as my wedding planner because she kept me in the loop about wedding restrictions, she gave me options and most of all, I had someone to talk to. As a bride, planning your own wedding is super stressful and then adding on top of that a pandemic— wow.

    I didn’t intend to have a wedding planner initially but boy I don’t have any regrets. From video calls, phone calls, text messages to our wedding day, Liz was there. She helped us with our music! She even took care of the decor! The venue was beautiful and intimate and everything you would want for a wedding in a pandemic! So please, hire her because you really don’t need all that stress for the most important day of your life.

    Stress free planning

    Whatever we wanted and needed to change they made it happen. I cannot thank Liz, our wedding planner enough for her patience and hard work.

    Covid wedding

    When our original dream of getting married in Jamaica fell apart due to covid Liz helped us realize a new dream here at home. Liz was amazing at helping us plan our micro-wedding in a short 4 months in the midst of a pandemic. Thank you Liz for making our day so special

    Could not have gotten married without Liz!

    We worked with Liz throughout 2020 getting ready for our wedding on 11/21/20, and I can honestly say that there is no way our wedding day would have gone off so perfectly had she not been involved! Planning a wedding is no easy task on a regular year, but trying to plan during a pandemic was stressful to say the least. Liz went above and beyond to offer help in so many ways and made the planning process so easy and seamless! She was organized, efficient, and flexible - the day of our wedding went so smoothly and we were able to relax and enjoy knowing that Liz was there to handle everything. We cannot recommend her enough and we would not hesitate to hire her again for any future events we might have! Thanks again Liz :)

    Created a beautiful day that exceeded all expectations!

    From start to finish the experience working with Liz was exactly what we needed! Liz has a calming presence and we were able to put our full trust in her to take care of the details. She took the little bit of information we provided about our likes and turned it into a beautiful day that exceeded all of our expectations. She connected us with vendors (photography, cake, charcuterie, live music, florals) that all provided amazing service and contributed to making this day better than we even imagined. She made sure we had all the special moments - a grand entrance, first dance, cake cutting, champagne toast and time to mingle with our guests. Thank you for such an incredible day!

    Thank you Liz!

    We are thankful we chose Liz to coordinate our day! It was a pleasure to correspond with Liz, as she was always kind and considerate in our emails and phone calls. We could really tell that she cared about our hopes for the day, and wanted to do what she could to assist!

    In particular, we appreciated her professionalism, her dilligence in making sure we were on schedule, and her committment to resolving issues wven when they required calls late at night!

    Thank you Liz!

    Super Helpful Planners

    Alfresco helped us with our pop-up wedding at Millbrook Cathedral. They were super communicative and helped us through each step of the process with ease! Even with some last minute floral changes on our part, they were so professional! We loved every moment of our wedding and would recommend Alfresco to any other engaged couple.

    Millbrook Cathedral is a beautiful venue with many options for where to hold your ceremony.
    My wife and I chose to do an all outdoor wedding (ceremony and reception) and the setting was perfect. It’s an intimate space that’s warm and inviting.
    We’re so happy that we decided to go with this venue for our special day.

Liz Josevski
Liz Josevski
Owner and Event Specialist

After many years of working as an Analyst and keeping customers happy, I decided it was time for a career change. With a passion for details and the heart of a true romantic, I was immediately drawn to wedding planning. After becoming certified through the Wedding Planning Institute of Canada, Alfresco Wedding Planner was launched, and it quickly became apparent that this was my true calling.
I have a calm and welcoming demeanor – I can put even the most anxious couple at ease with my friendly smile and ability to keep couples focused on the big picture while I handle all of the details. I believe in always looking at the positive side of every situation, and I'm head-over-heels in love with being a wedding planner. When I'm not busy planning weddings, I love spending time with my daughter and my two dogs.

Krista Hart
Krista Hart
Lead Planner

Funny story about Krista, Liz was actually the day of coordinator for her wedding!

Krista enjoyed the experience of planning her own wedding so much she decided to pursue a career in wedding & event planning afterwards. We're so grateful she did!

Krista is the funniest person you will ever meet. Having her at your event is truly the best because she'll have you laughing so much you'll honestly forget any nerves. Her favourite moment in any wedding is that magical split second where a bride/groom sees their partner for the first time before they walk down the aisle (we couldn't agree more!).

If you've ever worked with Krista, you'll know how much she truly loves the satisfaction of seeing an event finally come together and admiring the smiles of a happy client.

We are happy to have her as part of the Alfresco team!

Pamela Hiscock
Pamela Hiscock
Event Planner

We are so thrilled to have Pamela on the Alfresco team!
Pamela is the talent behind our new hand lettering service. She discovered a love of hand lettering in 2016 and has been providing gorgeous custom art including welcome signs, seating charts, table numbers & decorative signage ever since.
Her talent doesn't end there! She has worked in event planning since 2013 and brings a keen eye for detail, efficiency, and enthusiasm for creating beautiful things to every event she works.
When she's not working her magic at events, Pamela is also an animal lover and a big fan of the outdoors (although camping is where she draws the line 😂).
Fun fact about Pamela, she was born, raised, and started her career in events in the Greater London Area in England. She moved to Canada in 2014, and although not the biggest fan of snow she sure prefers it to all the rain in England.
