    I am so happy I found Bourbon & Bloom! I thought I could do everything myself, but ended up completely overwhelmed. Cait took over in the month leading up to my wedding and coordinated EVERYTHING. She developed a timeline for the day, worked with vendors and her team was on-site to make sure everything ran smoothly and looked beautiful (special shout out to the lovely Amy). I also took advantage of their rebooked project to donate my leftover wedding flowers to a local senior's residence. My floral arrangements were collected and re-assembled into bouquets for the residents. It felt great to "share the love" from our wedding.

    My husband Paul and I just got married on August 20, 2016 and we had an outdoor wedding in the country an hour away from Ottawa in Low, QC.
    We were a little intimidated as our guest list was close to 200 people and we didn't realize how much work goes into an outdoor wedding.
    We decided to hire a wedding coordinator for the day of as we knew how busy we will be. We went on Facebook and found Cait O'Malley from Love is Love.
    We had our first meeting with her a little more than a month before the wedding and I think she could tell how nervous I was.
    She was very attentive and kind. She listened to everything we wanted and went through all of our contracts to make sure we were on the right track.
    She was very accommodating and patient and she kept in touch almost daily, making sure that everything was being done through the vendors.
    The day of the wedding, she made sure that everything was executed. She had our schedule and followed it through to the very end!
    From the table setting (Which was done beautifully and exactly how I imagined) to making sure that the midnight snack was put out on time.....She even bustled my dress for me :)
    She had an assistant who was also very helpful. She had juice and granola bars ready on hand and was always at my side making sure everything was going smoothly.
    I highly recommend hiring the staff at Love is Love as our wedding probably wouldn't have gone so smoothly and perfectly.
    Not only did we enjoy working with her, we also gained a friend.
    Thank you again to Cait from Love is Love

    Cheers,
    Lisa and Paul Prud'Homme

    My husband and I are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Caitlin O'Malley from Love is Love Weddings. Cait and her assistant were extremely professional, very well organized, proactive and provided quality customer service. They went above and beyond the call of duty. Elaine provided prompt response throughout the wedding planning process. Due to the venue location (Aviation museum), we could not set-up the décor the evening prior to our wedding day. Cait had to coordinate all the details with the caterer, décor specialist, florist, DJ, Limo and even set-up our DIY décor etc. The list went on and on. Our wedding day went seamless in the exception of our Limo service. The limo never showed up to pick-up the groom and groomsmen. However, Cait was ready for a situation like this and took matters into her own hands.

    Most importantly, Cait made us feel like her number one priority and always kept us in the loop. On the wedding day, we were blissfully unaware of last minute problems as Cait effectively managed all issues which is exactly what we wanted :). We highly recommend Cait, as there is no task too small or too large that she cannot do! All and all the day of the event everything fell into place and everyone had an amazing time.

    Supportive and dedicated

    I can’t say enough good things about Cait. Our wedding was meticulously and beautifully planned for 2020 when the unpredictable threw us off course. Cait was with us every step of the way, coordinating changes with vendors, checking in, following the latest updates and being honest and open with us. She put our needs first and supported us through the most stressful times. She is a wonderful wedding planner and advisor and I’m very grateful for her work.

    Lifesavers!

    Cait and the folks at Bourbon and Bloom are lifesavers. I hired them for two execution services - one for a proposal and the other for a wedding.
    Having this help to execute the proposal made it better and smoother than I could have done myself.
    Hiring Bourbon and Bloom to execute the wedding was a whole other level! Executing an established vision correctly for us is one thing. It's an entirely other thing to give invaluable advice and tips leading up to the big day, coordinate with our vendors for the month leading up to it, and make excellent judgment calls throughout the day. Bourbon and Bloom did all of this and more. If anything went wrong that day, we don't know about it! I don't think our day could have possibly gone as smoothly without this great team behind us. Thanks again!!

    Cait o Malley took the stress off me of worrying if my diy decor would be set up on time for my Sunday brunch wedding. I hired her team for set up and tear down. They did a great job even with the short time frame and the fact it poured rain so ceremony and reception had to be in the same space. Would absolutely hire them again... Hopefully for another occassion lol. They were flexible and when Cait found out my family and friends had helped do tear down early and that she didn't need to come back she refunded some of her pay. Which was above and beyond as I was completely happy to pay. Again just so professional and caring service.
