100% Recommend!

Hiring Alfresco Wedding and Events to be my day of coordinator was the best investment I made on my wedding day. The services I received was 100% worth the fair price they charge. We got married two weeks ago at Millbrook Cathedral. I had Liz as my contact source to start then I had Krista as the main coordinator on my wedding day. Krista was fun, feisty, organized and on point with every single detail. At one point, Krista was all up in my dress helping me bustle it so I could dance easier. The next moment she was helping a guest find an item they lost. Krista grabbed me food and helped me feel calm. I am sure Krista dealt with stuff behind the scenes but we never knew because things went so smoothly. Krista was a warm and fun presence and my fiance and I had minimal stress on our wedding day. Alfresco even uses this awesome program to make a full day of itinerary that you can collaborate on and share with your wedding party. Alfresco set up all of our decor and packed everything up nicely for us. Overall, I would 10/10 recommend hiring Alfresco Weddings and Events, they are worth every dollar and we couldn't have done it without them! Thanks :)

100% Amazed by the Alfresco Weddings and Event Staff

The Alfresco Wedding planners and team blew away my husband and me! We cannot begin to thank the staff; our wedding was pure magic.
They made the planning process easy and stress-free; the transition from planners to event coordinators on the day of the event was marvelous.
Thank you so much for making our wedding the best day ever.

Remove the stress of wedding planning!

Wow! I loved how stress free my wedding planning was thanks to the Alfresco Team. They had all the styles available, I just had to point and pick or send a few reference photos. Everything was taken care of. What a fantastic idea!

Everything was taken care of!

We had our wedding at the Millbrook Cathedral and the Alfresco team did a wonderful job taking care of everything. They contacted all of our vendors, communicated our wedding needs, and accommodated any reasonable request we made. The questionnaire made it very easy to communicate our vision, and we had an open conversation throughout the months leading up to the wedding. We would 100% recommend them to any couple looking for easy planning. Alfresco made it so all of our planning went through one person instead of having to reach out to multiple people all by yourself. It was the wedding we dreamed of!

Highly Recommend Liz & her Team for Wedding Coordination

As a very detailed and organized bride, throughout the planning process I found myself wondering why I hired a coordinator because I like to be in the loop and take charge of things. However, on the week leading up and the weekend of the wedding, I realized I made the right decision in hiring Liz and her team. They executed my vision and helped make the wedding weekend minimal stress - which I didn't think was possible for me! They worked very well with the rest of our vendors, and I recommend to any bride/groom that thinks they have everything under control to take a step back and lean on the people they have hired to do their job - Liz will do an excellent one!

Can’t recommend enough!

This wonderful company takes all of the stress out of planning a wedding. Liz and Meagan were so wonderful to work with and fully executed our vision with the utmost professionalism and care for every little detail. They were quick and responsive, and took our ideas and created the most beautiful wedding. They went above and beyond with not only setting up the decorations I brought (something I was not expecting, and was such a wonderful surprise!) but also, carefully packing everything away at the end of the night. Everyone says to expect something to go wrong, but absolutely everything went perfectly, and that is 100% because of them. I wish I could give more than five stars!

Thank you for making our dream wedding a reality!

Highly Recommend Liz & her team

Liz and her team are great at what they do. They are so friendly and extremely considerate to making sure your vision comes to life. Liz is very laid back but also very focused and driven. You can tell she loves what she does. If you are on the fence about getting a wedding planner in any capacity, don't be! It is so worth it... Liz and her team will keep your day running smoothly and effortlessly. We highly recommend her services.

So grateful to Liz!

Planned and replanned our wedding numerous times due to Covid. We had Liz along for the ride and we are so grateful for her expertise and passion. She was invested in my evolving vision of our wedding and had wonderful suggestions and recommendations. It was so beneficial having her manage everyone and everything on the day of our wedding. I cannot recommend her enough. Thank you to Liz and her team!

Five stars are not enough

I cannot recommend Liz and Alfresco weddings strongly enough. Book them if you can!!!! From the beginning reaching out and asking about their services they were so quick to respond and with such a full description of their available services. And the VALUE oh my god!!!! Liz and her wonderful assistant Danielle came from Ottawa all the way out to Orangeville to take part in our wedding. Liz was present for the rehearsal the night prior and bright and early the day of. She made our day run so smoothly, I couldn’t tell you the number of people who said “I have never been to a wedding without a single hiccup or delay, until today” she was so supportive and worked so seamlessly with all of our vendors. I never imagined that the month in advance of my wedding would be the least stressful time of the entire planning process but she and her team are spectacular! Thank you so much Liz and Danielle you helped make our day so special and SO RELAXING!! And I’ll say it one more time BOOK THEM you will not regret it!

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.

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.
