    Chantal is fantastic!

    Chantal was amazing at keeping us on track over the past year and ensured that we had a perfect wedding. She brought up things that we wouldn't have thought of and leveraged her contacts in the industry to help us with our planning. On the day-of she took care of absolutely everything, making the set-up and take-down a breeze and things couldn't have gone any smoother for us. Thanks to Chantal, our wedding was exactly the day that we had in our minds. Thank you so much!! We would highly recommend hiring Chantal for any wedding or event planning in the future.

    Turned our vision into a reality!

    We highly recommend CC Weddings and Events to anyone seeking a wedding or event planner. Chantal is kind, personable, and highly professional. Our families, wedding party, and vendors had nothing but great things to say about her character, attention to detail, and work ethic.

    From our first meeting with Chantal, we knew we were in great hands. She is extremely organized and made sure we didn’t forget any of the details that likely would have been overlooked, especially as we got closer to the date.

    Our rehearsal and wedding day were an absolute dream and Chantal was a huge part of that. From our perspective, the entire weekend went perfectly and was completely stress-free. Chantal set up our ceremony and tables so beautifully, communicated with all of our vendors, arranged our decor and flowers, and even sewed missing buttons onto one of the groomsman’s pants. We truly thank Chantal for coordinating one of the best days of our lives and we hope to run into her again sometime in the future!

    Thank you Christine! It was such a great experience working with you and Mike. I hope we cross paths again soon!

    Above and Beyond

    Wow! To say we were impressed would be an understatement. If you've been debating on hiring a wedding planner or coordinator, then debate no further! Chantal is phenomenal and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services.
    Not only did she understand and execute our vision perfectly, but also ensured our day was seamless, super enjoyable and stress-free. She always knew exactly what to do and when to do it. Having her help during the lead up to our event was so essential to the success of our day, she made sure that even the smallest of details were addressed.
    Her level of professionalism and organization is top notch and her warm, magnetic personality made working with her truly a pleasure. We couldn't have been happier with her!

    CC Weddings and Events's reply:

    Thank you so much Heather! It was such a lovely day and I enjoyed working with you both (and your family and friends!).

    Highly recommend!

    We were so lucky to have Chantal coordinating the most magical day of our lives. She was beyond prepared at all stages of the process and thought of things that we didn't consider, before we realized or even KNEW that we needed them. She was 10 steps ahead of us at all times, troubleshooting and organizing everything and everyone. Our day was entirely worry-free thanks to Chantal's incredible work and attention to detail. We highly recommend Chantal for any event. Our day wouldn't have been the same without her.

    Excellent Coodinator!

    We used Chantal as our day of coordinator and she was amazing! She met with us twice leading up to the wedding and knew exactly what to ask us. She organized all of our vendors ahead of time and created a timeline, and was able to answer all our questions by email.

    Our venue was very non-traditional having only hosted a handful of weddings, and most of what we did was DIY with friends and family so that made it challenging to coordinate a bunch of non-professionals. However, Chantal made sure that everything went off totally smoothly, and any glitches that came up she dealt with right away so we didn't even know about them! She really knows her stuff!

    Her rates were also very affordable compared to others we'd looked at, and included more time in the package (including running the rehearsal). She was absolutely worth every penny!

    The perfect wedding coordinator!

    Chantal was fantastic! We hired for the "day-of" coordination package for our wedding in September. She was prompt to reply to my initial inquiry and presented me with all of her (very) reasonable packages. She did not pressure or try to "up-sell" us and the value she provided for what we paid was amazing! She came out to our property to do a site visit and met my entire family (who also loved her) and helped us think about things not yet on our list, provided recommendations and advice, and helped solve some of the problems we had encountered. Her organizational skills, understanding, kindness, and diplomacy were what made her stand out to us - she was able to have frank conversations with us but was so supportive and understanding the entire time. At our rehearsal, she was prepared and kept everything on track to run through the ceremony. She even coordinated with my husband and family members to organize a surprise for me without me knowing! She learned everyone's name and really had a personal touch throughout the entire process - it was really more like having a friend coordinate your wedding than a vendor being paid to be there! On the day of the wedding, she hit the ground running and helped out with everything from setting up decor, meeting vendors, helping move various items, and keeping our entire family on track with their assigned tasks laid out in the detailed timeline she created. Even when we were surprised with a downpour of rain she ensured that everything was under control and made things happen behind the scenes. We cannot thank Chantal enough for her hard work and dedication to making our wedding the best day ever! - Lauren & Dominic

    Thank you so much Lauren! It was so nice to work with you Dominic and your families. I am so glad everything worked out so well - even the weather cooperated :)

    Our wedding day

    Chantal from CC Weddings & Events was the reason our wedding day 2 weeks ago, went off without a hitch. She was patient with my 100 requests, very responsive to my calls, texts & emails, and made the entire process of my wedding day stress free. Chantal and I had an initial meeting before we booked her (few months prior) and right away I knew we had made the right choice. She then came out to our venue a few days before our wedding (which just so happened to be on her birthday) to do a run through with me and go over where we wanted and how we wanted everything. She then listened and eased my stress the following days as I continuously forgot about things, like where I wanted my cake and that we needed more tables than I thought. On the day of our wedding, she went out of her way to do a few pickups for me for things that I couldn’t get until that morning. She went above and beyond before even getting to the venue. The venue and ceremony space was EXACTLY the way I imagined it. It’s like she read my mind when I couldn’t even tell her how I wanted things to look. We had so many compliments on the set up and I was so happy when I walked into the venue by myself to take a breather before our ceremony started. Both the ceremony space and the reception rooms were perfectly done and we can’t thank Chantal enough for her attention to detail and time spend perfecting our special day. I would recommend Chantal for any wedding or event that you need help getting ready for or decorating. 10/10!!!

    An absolute pleasure to work with

    Chantal was our month of coordinator for our wedding this past July. From the very start I knew we had made the right choice in hiring Chantal because of how attentive, organized and reassuring she was. She never once pushed an idea, she let me lead while offering helpful tips and sharing her experience. My one regret was not asking Chantal to help plan the wedding from the very start! I cannot adequately describe how much we enjoyed our wedding, and that was because Chantal managed every little detail and ensured that everything happened as we wanted. I am so thankful for all of the work she put into planning our wedding day!

    Our wedding could not have happened without Chantal!

    My husband and I have nothing but good things to say about Chantal! From the beginning, Chantal took the time to get to know us and understand what we wanted for our wedding day. I felt immediately less stressed after our first meeting. She was incredibly organized and had every detail covered. She was always super fast to respond to my emails. On our actual wedding day, we were able to relax and enjoy the day, which is exactly what we wanted from the beginning. Chantal did an amazing job organizing the vendors, finding last minute table clothes, and arranging for us to sign a missing section of our wedding license (yes that happened).

Meet the Team

Chantal Valkenborg
Chantal Valkenborg
Owner

I have been working in events for over ten years. These have ranged from academic events and conferences, to weddings and festivals. I have a BAH and MA in art history from Queen’s University and completed a diploma in event management certified by the Chartered Institute of Marketing in 2016 while living in the UK.

During my time in the UK I had the amazing opportunity to work on Pride in London. I worked specifically as a liaison between Prides throughout the UK and towards creating an accessible Pride for all. In 2016 at our first attempt we achieved Silver Certification with Attitude is Everything.

I subsequently moved back to Canada in the summer of 2017 and shortly thereafter my partner and I welcomed a baby boy into our family. Having a year to reflect on my career helped me realize that it was the perfect time to start my own business.

In the summer of 2018 I helped plan the annual Kingston Multicultural Arts Festival – hosting 22 cultural associations, coordinating 12 performances on the main stage and 6 free art workshops for up to 8,000 visitors. I currently work on events with Advancement at Queen’s University.

What makes me stand out as a wedding planner? My organizational skills and knowledge. My love for my job. Most importantly, my commitment to you, your vision, and your goals.

I would love to hear from you about your vision and how I can help make your dream a reality. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
