Such a Pleasure :)
Working with Alexandra was the best choice we could have made for our Wedding day. She guided us in all the ways we needed, supported our vision and choices, and worked so gracefully the day of.. I didn't have a care in the world during our wedding, and I enjoyed it to its absolute fullest! Alexandra is an exceptional planner and organizer, but she also has the softness and warmth we needed to feel encouraged, supported and nurtured throughout the whole process. I remember the shift I felt after our phone calls, from overwhelm and uncertainty to ease and reassurance. Her advise and guidance was spot-on, and it was such a comfort to have her expertise and wisdom in areas we didn't even realize we needed! My most favorite takeaway is how authentic and truly "us" our event was, and Alexandra enabled this in every way! I will look happily on our wedding forever. I am smiling now, just thinking of it :]. Thank you!Sent on 18/10/2019

Helpful and well organized
I hired a wedding planner based on the recommendation from my friend. Alexandra was definitely an asset with organizing and offering suggestions for our wedding. There were a few minor things that "went wrong" but nothing can be solely blamed on anyone. One thing was when we showed up to our venue the Friday before our wedding to set up it was completely locked up.....I called the manager and he said that nobody ever informed him that we were coming the day before to set up. I had assumed that that was something that may have been set up through our wedding planner but also a lack of communication on my part so not entirely anyone's fault.Sent on 22/09/2019
Then it was mentioned to me that it was possible to have our linen rentals returned by her or one of her assistants at the end of our wedding. When the wedding came around they looked like a deer in the head lights when I mentioned them returning our linens so we were left scrambling at our wedding trying to find someone's car to stuff our linens into.
Again.....nothing life altering but just a bit annoying seeing how much money I spent for the service.
On the positive, she provided us with several vender options that worked out great. We were given a folder with all of our contracts layed out so it was easy to find things.

Definitely worth it!!
Both my husband and I’s families live out of town and are not familiar with Calgary or the wedding venues so have Alexandra there as the day of coordinator allowed especially our moms to relax and enjoy the day with us and made it so much easier to stay on top of planning and ensuring that I had everything done that I needed to do!Sent on 10/01/2020

Excellent wedding planner!
Alexandra is a dream to work with. My wedding day wouldn’t have been possible without her!! She is so organized and pays attention to every single detail. Everyone who was at my wedding couldn’t stop raving about how great of a job she did. Most of all, I didn’t have to worry about a single thing. I was able to relax the entire day which made it 100% enjoyable! I highly recommend her!Sent on 25/10/2018

We are so thankful to have had Alexandra with Boutiq Weddings and Events on our team. She had great connections and suggestions to other vendors to make our wedding day come together. Our wedding envision was very organic as we had horses, children, flower grandmothers, tented out doors, and during Calgary Stampede so anything could happen. As the day came closer when most brides and families are frantic Alexandra calmly worked to make sure everything and everyone was organized. The vendors we worked with for catering, cake, alterations, and DJ services were both new and experienced companies to the market that were excited to work with Boutiq Weddings and Events. I would recommend Alexandra and her team at Boutiq Weddings and Events to anyone as she is professional sending out timelines, counting plates and napkin for rental returns, attention to detail but also because she is approachable and fun!Sent on 13/08/2017

Owner and Head Planner
Thank you for taking a look at Boutiq Weddings & Events post. I am Alexandra, owner and head planner of the business. I started my carreer in event planning when I was at university, and then continued on when my children were at school organizing fundraisers and such. Then in 2008, I started working for the Wedding Pavillion as an event manager and fell in love with planning weddings. I opened my business in 2010 and have not looked back since. I love to taking a couples ideas, help design their vision and then make it come to life. There is nothing more satisfying than watching a bride and groom walk into their reception room and be awestruck. I look forward to creating, planning and coordinating your wedding.

I always loved watching any wedding related show so I decided to take Hospitality Management at SAIT to expose myself to the behind the scenes of events and then got certified with the WPIC about 3 years ago now.
