    From the moment we met Barb, we were extremely impressed by her remarkable attention to detail, exceptional professionalism and unparalleled commitment to her clients. Having Barb in our corner made the entire wedding planning process so manageable. Barb's expert touch was apparent from the very start - when our venue suddenly closed, Barb contacted us with a game plan even before the venue itself! She was always incredibly prompt in responding to our questions and seamlessly coordinated all arrangements with our numerous vendors. Knowing we were in Barb's capable hands on our big day relieved our stress completely. The peace of mind she gave us enabled us to feel totally at ease and simply enjoy our celebration. Barb was the greatest gift we could have given ourselves and our guests and we can't thank her enough for our perfect wedding day!

    If I could give Barb higher than a 5 star I wouldn't hesitate!!! Hiring a planner (we decided to go with day of coordination- which is really much more than just day of with Barb) was something I knew I needed to do- I get very stressed out if things don't go to plan! My husband, on the other hand, saw it as a place we could save some money. However, I insisted for my sanity it was something we needed to do and after meeting Barb my husband 150% agreed!! Barb is a godsend!! I cannot stress enough how fantastic she is at her job!!! She was someone I could touch base with throughout my planning process if I had questions or wanted a vendor recommendation. When it came closer to the wedding Barb took care of all the itinerary planning, a huge stress off my shoulders! Barb truly took charge from the rehearsal onwards- it made me so relaxed knowing that everything was in good hands, and that someone as meticulous as me (probably even more so) was overseeing everything! Knowing Barb was in charge on our wedding day allowed me to truly relax and enjoy the day rather than being stressed out about something going wrong! Barb, you're amazing and I cannot say enough good things about you! I would 150% recommend Barb to any and all friends and family getting married!!

    Barbara made our night stress free and ensured we enjoyed every single second. She contacted all our vendors, took care of co-coordinating drop offs / pick ups, and created the most detailed timeline ever for us! Her attention to detail was outstanding and we were grateful to have her! Thank you for everything! Xx

    We hired Barbara Grace Weddings to execute our wedding. The first time we met Barbara we knew that she was a very detailed person and extremely passionate about weddings and how to plan them. Barbara is personable, fun, timely, flexible and easy to work with. She had no problem making the 1.5-hour trip to London for our big day. During the planning stages Barbara provided us with her professional expertise and knowledge by focusing on the details. This allowed us to ask lots of questions about things that we did not even consider and Barbara was there to provide us with multiple ways to look at our options. On our wedding day she was there from start to finish and executed her plan flawlessly. All guests, vendors and wedding party had an amazing, fun, care free wedding day thanks to Barbara and her planning. Based on our experience we highly recommend Barbara Grace Weddings. Thank you Barbara for making our day one we will never forget!! Will and Sarah Stewardson - August 20th, 2016

    Barb was nothing short of incredible on our big day! She ensured our day flowed smoothly and flawlessly. From our first meeting, Barb was organized, very detail-oriented and a great communicator. She answered every little question we had in a timely manner. She always made herself available to us. Not having to worry about anything on our wedding day was the best money we spent. Barb created a perfect schedule for the day, ran last-minute errands and coordinated with all of our vendors. We cannot say enough wonderful things about the service we received. Thank you so much Barb for helping to make our big day such a memorable one!

    If you are debating hiring an event planner for your wedding, stop debating! We did the same thing and ultimately decided after meeting Barb we would be stupid not to hire her. It was the smartest decision we made. Barb will make your day so fun and easy, you won't understand how people even get stressed out on their wedding day. From the weeks leading up to your wedding to the big day, Barb will be there every step of the way bending over backwards to make sure everything is perfect and if it isn't perfect you have no idea because she is that good. Our day was absolutely perfect and Barb was there until the bitter end making sure everyone was getting home safe and all the loose ends were tied up. She is the perfect amount of fire that you need to get stuff done mixed with the kindest heart to be an ear for your parents when they talk about how proud they are of you. We cannot thank Barb enough for all she has done for us. We HIGHLY recommend Piece of Cake Event Planning!!!!

    My wedding was very unique in the fact that it was a three day event; Friday BBQ with camp fires, Saturday wedding with personalized concert for guest, and Sunday brunch. Planning the wedding was certainly a group effort, and without Barbara it would not have gone nearly as smoothly. She found our camp counsellors for the kids camp, coordinated and communicated between various venders, and didn't even mind getting her hands dirty while helping with the decorations. Barbara provided great advice and counsel when needed, and always very pleasant when interacting with myself and my husband.

    Barbara was our event planner for our wedding. Cannot express enough how big of a part of our wedding she was. From the smallest detail to keeping everybody on track Barbara was there for us! We had a back yard farm wedding and we could not have done what we did without her. AMAZING. If you want a planner Barbara is the one to choose!

    From the moment we met Barbara we knew that we were in good hands. She immediately made us feel at ease, and we absolutely trusted her with our wedding day. Barbara is kind, compassionate, honest, patient and diligent. She is incredibly thorough and ensured that our wedding day went off without a hitch. Even when issues arise (as they sometimes do), Barbara is able to remain calm and composed and deals with any and all incidents in a professional, timely and discreet manner. We can honestly say that Barbara was the reason our wedding day went so smoothly, and was truly one of the happiest and best days of our lives! We can't thank you enough, and we absolutely recommend Piece of Cake Event Planning to any and all couples getting married!

    We used Barbara as our day-of coordinator for our wedding a couple weeks ago, and she was great. She was very friendly and easy to work with and seemed to go out of her way to make sure that our day turned out just the way we wanted it. It was because of her that our day ran smoothly and everyone had a wonderful time. And the most important thing was that we, the brides, were able to relax knowing that Barbara had everything under control. We would definitely recommend Barbara’s services to others!
