Incredibly Worthwhile

We met Angie for the first time when visiting our wedding venue at Bodega Ridge on Galiano Island. She was welcoming and informative, listening to what was important to us, commenting on what would work well, and offering gentle suggestions on how we could improve our wedding weekend. We quickly concluded that she would be a valuable ally to have advising us, and decided to engage her for AAWE’s Wedding Month Management services.

That was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Angie was always a calming presence, handling our questions and requests with patience and empathy. We had a few phone consultations and plenty of emails back and forth, all of which led to us making informed choices and being well-prepared in the weeks and months leading up to our wedding date. She created a day-of schedule, kept that schedule on track, led our rehearsal, coached our officiant/MC, and kept everything running smoothly with our vendors, music cues, seating arrangements, etc. There are a thousand little things to take care of on the wedding day itself, and we’re so thankful to have had Angie taking the lead on all of that, keeping any logistical stress far away from us and our guests. We were able to relax and have an amazing time because she had earned our trust so fully.

One standout moment was when my now-wife (!) and I got back from taking wedding party photos after the ceremony, and Angie met us just outside the venue with a plate of canapés that she had reserved just for the two of us. She anticipated that we wouldn’t have eaten much, and that this was a moment we could catch our breath and have a few bites. I asked her how she was doing and if she was stressed, to which she replied with a smile, “Are you kidding? I love this.”

A true gem!

Where to even begin with this incredible person?!

We worked with Angie for a year leading up to our big day. She felt like family since day one and I can whole heatedly say she became family by wedding day.

Angie executed our 3 day wedding weekend full of seamless and custom events for 140 people! She is calm, communicative, and responsive beyond measure. Working with Angie was a huge enhancement to our wedding year and the planning process.

I will gladly provide additional details to any future clients about my experience working with her. Angie - you are a true gem. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for creating the wedding and weekend of our dreams.

All the best!

A very good decision

We had an extremely positive experience working with AAWE to coordinate and plan our wedding. Absolutely worthwhile.

Angie was able to keep us on track in our planning process through several meetings in the months before the event. She was always quick to reply to emails and made time available for calls whenever we needed them. She provided us with a great web portal for consolidating our scattered plans and became an essential contributor to our strategizing and documentation.
Her tools, experience, preparedness, and kindness really made those weeks before the wedding manageable and tolerable.

We felt supported and accommodated throughout the whole process. Angie made sure that our questions were answered and that our plans were well thought through. She worked closely with the venue to ensure our requests (even the strange ones) were honoured. I felt strongly that Angie was intent on helping us realize our vision, whatever it may have been.

She was also an essential asset at the event - perfectly coordinating our guests, speakers, vendors, and venue so that we could enjoy the day without worry. I felt as relaxed as I expect any person could hope to be on their wedding day and I really credit that to Angie.

We’re very grateful to have had Angie and the AAWE team to help us pull off our wedding.
I expect to be recommending them for the rest of my life.

The moment I met Angie I knew she was the most perfect match for us. I described her to everyone that would listen, as the most calm, wonderful woman I had ever met. She was absolutely my life saver during wedding planning. She listened to my frustrations, my ideas, my vision and my fears. Everything leading up to to our wedding day was able to happen because of her support. She executed my vision just as I had planned and she made everything on the day happen as it should have. Her organization was top notch, her calm demeanor was absolutely perfect, and her bubbly personality was the perfect addition to our day.

Ive had so many comments from friends and family about how wonderful, organized and sweet she was. My husband said his first meeting with Angie was so comfortable and organic it was as if we had known her for years.

I could go on and on about how wonderful Angie is, and I am so thankful I was able to talk my husband into letting me hire her. I couldn't have imagined my day without her and I am so thankful for the relationship that we created and one that I hope will last a life time. Thank you Angie from the bottom of my heart, for helping me create my most perfect day

25/5 stars! Angie is a saint!

If I could honestly give Angie 25/5 stars I would! We ended up in the thick of Covid with a planned June wedding at Bodega. Angie was both our coordinator and officiant. Through many postponements, reschedules and eventually an elopement Angie was a constant calm and I don't think we can ever thank her enough for all her help and positivity. I probably have like 500 emails to her haha and she was steady through everything.

Covid aside, she also planned an absolutely beautiful ceremony, helped us with zoom, decorated my tables, gave us recommendations...the list goes on. She's just a person that exudes warmth, connection and kindness on top of generally being a wedding wizard.

We would recommend Angie 100 times over! Thank you Angie!

Simply Outstanding Experience!

We can't say enough about the outstanding job Angie did in helping us plan our extremely last minute micro-wedding on Galiano island! After our original wedding plans were derailed due to Covid-19, we reached out to Angie to see if it was possible to organize something last minute (in under 7 days) on the magnificent Galiano island for us and our immediate family. She went out of her way to coordinate last minute with vendors and help us put us at ease despite our ambitious timeline. Thanks Angie for helping us create such a special day on such short notice!

Beautiful elopement

We cannot say enough about Angie and the team she created specifically for us .. My husband and I had no idea how to go about eloping in another province especially on short notice when our original wedding plans had to be cancelled; but Angie made us so comfortable and relaxed and she made sure everything turned out perfectly ... she listened to our million questions, took care of all our concerns and turned all of that Into exactly what I was imagining for our perfect that - somehow Angie puzzled it all together even though I didn’t even know how to describe what I wanted. She connected us to Vendors that were above and beyond and to top it off Angie did the most beautiful personalized ceremony as our officiant !!!

I would encourage anybody looking to get married on the dreamy Galliano island to look up Angie .. she took care of everything for us and made it stress free and seamless .. I cannot thank the Galiano Inn and Spa , Angie or all the many vendors that made our perfect day a reality .. Thank you !!!

Not enough thank yous

We are so incredibly thankful and forever indebted to Angie for being apart of our wedding day. When we decided to have our wedding on Galiano, we knew we would need someone to help us support the process. Angie was the first "vendor" we hired, and it was the best decision we made. Looking back, we could not have done it without her. She was with us every step of the way, keeping us focused, calm and organized. A true professional, she made us feel as if our wedding was the only wedding that mattered. Knowing she is a busy and in-demand planner, she always made time for us and was available at any time to answer our seemingly endless barrage of questions. She is a yes-person and where there is a will, Angie will find a way. She went out of her way to many times to make our vision come together, and never batted an eye our many requests.
Angie kept us focused and in check throughout the process. When planning a wedding on small island, there are so many little things that need to be considered, and Angie made sure every detail was organized. One of the most special things about Angie is that she is incredibly calm, and this is infectious. We did not realize until after how instrumental this was in making our day the best it could have been. Wedding days can be crazy and hectic, and having Angie's calming presence beside us throughout the day, allowed us to stay calm and relaxed and enjoy every moment. We cannot recommend Angie enough and know you will be so thrilled to have her alongside you for the journey!
Thank you Angie!

Fantastic Wedding Planner!!!

Angie! You gave my daughter and son in law the story book wedding weekend of their dreams, and therefore ours as well!!!

We first contacted Angie Allen from Angie Allen Wedding and Events (who has partnered with Bodgea Ridge on Galiano Island) about a year ago.
After traveling to Galiano Island to meet Angie as well as the owner of Bodega Ridge Jesse we felt relaxed and very sure of our decision to have Angie and Bodega Ridge host our wedding weekend.

There was never a doubt about hiring Angie for full wedding planning. The costs of her services are invaluable and she shows her worth in every call, and all her hard work behind the scene. She lives in the area, and therefore her knowledge of the Island, the local vendors, and accommodation for our guests was very important. By nature Angie is thoughtful, kind and patient!!! We were in communication with Angie regularly for about a year. Never ending phone calls and video chats! She is a brilliant listener, heard my daughter’s vision, and turned her/our dream into reality. There are million little things that we would not have thought of but Angie took care of everything. From our custom wedding invitation suite, and website, Angie tracked all our 140 ish guests and send timely emails to remind everyone of Ferry Bookings, accommodations and special events we had over the weekend. Her thoughtful and informative emails to our guests were so appreciated.
She was on top of every detail, with special seating and design software, our personal portal for communication, and budget tracking, vendor lists, custom timelines and more.

We asked for much, and Angie never doubted anything we wanted to do. It was always “Yes I can make that happen!"
Her team looked after every detail and we were able to enjoy the year in planning with no stress!!!!!
She spent hours helping us put together our gift bags and then hours delivering them to all our guests accommodation!
She came to Vancouver to help us pick silk for our chuppah and benches. Sourced and organized incredible local chocolates from Urge Chocolates. Another trip to Vancouver to pick up all our rentals! She communicated with all vendors to ensure they understood our vision - which they did perfectly!
We had organized picnics, breakfasts, a challenging French Bistro dinner with custom requests, many things in-between and of course our beautiful wedding day and dinner.
Angie and her team executed all seamlessly.

Our wedding day was relaxing and calm thanks to Angie’s careful and detailed preparation, as well as her custom timeline which kept us all on schedule.
She worked tirelessly with our Photographer, Videographer, Band, Dj, Florists, and Hair and Makeup. The vendors repeatedly told me how wonderful Angie was to work with. How easy she made the process for them. We just floated through the whole weekend, enjoying every minute. The wedding day was filled with thoughts of our beautiful children marrying.

Angie from the bottom of our hearts, we can not thank you enough for making our dreams come true.
Your kind and patient way, checking with us at the right moments, and carrying us all the way to the alter where
our children glowed with happiness. You are simply amazing and incredible. We could not have done this without you!

With everlasting gratitude, and love to a very special soul,

Ellen Bogoch

Where Do I Even Begin To Thank You

Angie… Where do I even begin to thank you. From our very first meeting you were attentive, patient, excited and organized. I couldn’t have imagined a better experience. You were the only wedding trade that I chose without the mutual consultation, so thank you for making me look so good!
After a conversation on the phone with Angie I felt so comfortable leaving her in charge of organizing our special day, as those that know me can attest, I hate giving up control and I like plan. Angie gave us the flexibility to do the things we wanted to do and was there to take it to the finish line. The number of things that you never even think of and all the little details is where Angie proved her worth 10x times over, and not only would handle them, but would exceed our expectations on what we ever could’ve imagined possible with the budget that we outlined for her.
We chose to have a wedding on our own property, which was 5 acres of bare land on Galiano, when most people thought we were crazy, Angie was driven and so excited to turn our dream into reality, without someone staying on top of the details our day wouldn’t have been half of what it was. From the seat planning software, to the custom wedding checklist, to the portal for communications, budgets, invoicing and photos it made the process clear and allowed us to focus on the bid picture without getting bogged down by all the details.
Now to the day of the wedding, Angie and her team (which includes her husband Mark who equals Angie’s amazingness) took care of everything to allow my Wife and I to enjoy the days leading up the wedding and not get caught up in the wedding craziness. Angie and her team were at the wedding all day however, had an amazing ability to not be seen.
I have summed our experience up with Angie into one main thing that let me relax and enjoy this process not all get to enjoy. Whenever we met our chatted it was always referred to by Angie as “our” wedding, and I truly felt Angie was going to walk down the aisle with us as a tri-pod. To not have the feeling of well its your wedding, you choose was so refreshing, and we couldn’t have had a better experience.
Angie, from the bottom of Ali & My heart, thank you for the incredible love, effort, and energy you brought to our special day, and I can’t wait for more Aperol Spritz with you and rounds of golf with Mark. I feel honoured that through your incredible work I have a wife and a new set of friends with you and Mark.
Love,
Kris & Ali.
