    A wonderful experience

    Liz delivered us a gorgeous, stress-free, and super fun wedding. I had no idea how smart I was to hand her the reins - super collaborative and incredibly professional. I don't know if wedding planners get better than this.

    Professional, Responsive, Personal & Fun!

    Liz and her team went above and beyond to make sure our wedding was perfect. Not only by showing up on the day and ensuring everything ran perfectly on schedule (without, for one second, taking away from the emotion of the day or making it feel rushed) but by being incredibly responsive and supportive in the time leading up to the day. Liz anticipated and solved so many potential issues for us well before those issues had even crossed our minds.

    Brilliant Events is also very clearly a well respected company in the wedding industry, as each of our vendors went out of their way to tell us how lucky we were to have Liz and her team helping us out (and we understand why!).

    Weddings are a ton of fun, but they can be very stressful for those organizing leading up to the day - Liz and her team took so much of that stress away. This was easily the best investment we made for our wedding, and would strongly encourage anyone planning a wedding (or any other event for that matter) to engage Liz and her team.

    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!

    Brilliant Events's reply:

    ELSA! You are a dream come true. Thank you so much for including us and trusting us with your gorgeous, wild, and fun wedding day. YES we also look forward to getting together again, you too are considered a friend. xoxoxox

    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!

    Brilliant Events's reply:

    Thank you so much Kavi and Stephanie - I loved every minute of your 24 hour wedding!! A highlight for sure was watching Kavi arrive by horse!! It was truly my honour to work with you, and I am so happy to now call you my friends. Much love- E

    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.

    Brilliant Events's reply:

    Thank you so much Michelle!! It was so fun and soul-filling to work with you and Mark. I can't wait to chat soon xoxo
