15/10 Brilliant Events knocks it out of the park

It's not possible to capture the magic of Brilliant Events in words. You have to experience it to understand. I was a stupidly busy bride in the lead-up to our wedding, and all I can say is Every. Last. Detail was handled. I have not one thing these women could have done differently. They showed up as coordinators and left as friends. Liz Tiedman and Hayley Cianca had to navigate all kinds of gong shows, many of which I didn't even know about; all they'd say was "I got you". They so did. Every guest we spoke with said it was the best wedding they'd ever been to. Thanks, ladies. Looking forward to debriefing over drinks one of these days!

Wonderful and Professional

Professional, diligent, down to earth, respectful, honest, amazing - just a few of the words we would use to describe Liz and her team!
Liz was receptive and open to our wishes, and able to use her experience and knowledge to execute everything smoothly.
Aspects unique to our event were handled in stride!
Liz knows her work, the region and the vendors, and is organized.
If you want drama - seek elsewhere.
If you want an experienced planner with a heart of gold who will save you time, money and aggravation - look no further.
We hired Liz the first day we met her because of her positive energy and attentiveness. Elle était, vraiment, à l’écoute!
And last, but not least - we have made new friend!

Liz & Team are on top of their game

Liz and her team was wonderful to work with. The day of wedding went so smoothly and she was incredible at handling decor and working with all our vendors. Nic and I highly recommend her.

Have it as Easy as the Groom!!

Whistler was our destination wedding, since we live in Ontario, but have a love for BC. As a bride who wanted it as easy as the groom, Brilliant Events was there to look after EVERYTHING. Their suggestions for an officiant to marry us, master baker at The Flour Pot, an artist with flowers at Ninebark, and Calligrapher Natasshia Neary were bang on, and the perfect fit for us. Liz and Hayley have impeccable taste and attention to detail. This was my second wedding, but my first with a planner. Get a planner. Get a planner who fits your style. Brilliant Events was amazing. Best day ever.

100% made our day PERFECT!

Liz is a dream to work with! Having a local wedding was important to us as was working with local vendors. Liz was invaluable to our planning process. She radiates warmth and light which makes her very approachable and fun to work with! Ultimately, you're planning what is hopefully going to be one of the best days of your life and the planning should be just as fun (in my humble opinion).

Liz offers considered suggestions and provides thoughtful insight to all questions, thoughts, ideas and concerns that we flagged. Her attention to detail when it comes to the day of timeline is truly her superhero power. She thought of everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) which allowed my partner and I to be calm, cool and fully present on the best day ever. It also created the space for our families to enjoy every moment as Liz and her team brought our dream day to life.

Professional, Thorough and Great Communicators

It was a pleasure to work with Brilliant Events! I had Hayley for day-of-coordination. She was professional, organized and a creative communicator. I was initially hesitant to hire a planner but my venue required a day-of-coordinator and I’m so glad I did! In hindsight, it made things so much easier and stress-free to have someone else not worrying about the little details. I would highly recommend working with Brilliant Events for your special day!

Dream Winter Wedding

Liz made our Wedding Dreams come true! She helped us plan for over a year and was just as excited as we were for our Wedding Day! She made our bridal party and family feel like they had known her for years making it a fantastic experience for everyone involved! Liz ensured we had the best of the best Whistler had to offer when it came to vendors. Her day of team, Hayley and Danielle were outstanding and executed our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception seamlessly! Thank you Brilliant Events!

10/10 Made our day SO special!

I cannot recommend Brilliant Events more enthusiastically! I'll start with the end: without Liz I don't think I could have been the relaxed, happy and present bride that I was on my wedding day! That feeling alone is worth hiring her team.

Liz goes above and beyond with her couples, right from the very start I felt like she took the time to listen to our vision. Liz is great at helping you work within your budget and can provide guidance on what to prioritize or splurge on vs. what is trendy and can be skipped.

Liz has a sparkle that attracts the best people, quite quickly in conversations with our other vendors I got the sense that people love to work with her. I heard MANY times through the process, "Oh you are working with Brilliant Events- you are in good hands!". She pulled together a dream team of local pros that I never would have found on my own.

Beyond wedding planning she is just also an amazing person, friend & mum.

September Whistler wedding

Jeff and I are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Liz at Brilliant Events. Our wedding was one of the elopement packages that Brilliant Events offered and we could not have been happier with what they put together for us! Liz took care of everything! She sourced all the vendors; hair and makeup, flowers, and our wonderful officiant. It was the perfect and most stress free way to have a wedding. Liz did an amazing job of taking our dream wedding ideas and making it a reality. She and the vendors made our wedding day elegant, intimate, and more than we could have ever dreamed for. We have heard nothing but positive reviews from our guests, MANY saying "It was the best wedding I have ever attended!". We really appreciated her hard work and time and attention in making us feel so special! They exceeded all of our expectations and did it with loving kindness. I would highly recommend Brilliant Events to all future brides and grooms! Thank you Liz for everything you have done for our family. We will always cherish our experience with you.

Liz is the best

So worth it. SO WORTH IT. The best decision we made (after deciding on spending our lives together) was to hire Liz to keep us sane and organized while planning such a big day. Liz was imperative to our whole process, she kept us grounded, organized, on track and realistic all while making sure our vision of our day was in focus. The whole process working with her was never stressful or overwhelming, she made it fun and memorable. The day of was more than we could ever have imagined, and a large part of that was due to Liz. We were two brides who were on time! With a bridal party of over 20 people! One million percent recommend.
