    Carmen exceed my expectations

    From my first initial meeting with her, she was warm, stylish, professional while also making you feel really comfortable. She came prepared with everything you would expect and more (with cute folders too!), we hit it off and after that I knew she would be my planner. During the process, she really made it as smooth as possible. Being in interior design and operations myself I was used to noticing the fine details of everything! However she would make me feel at ease and would be on top of everything (including answering my 17 question emails!). Although the services I agreed with only allowed a few meetings and phone calls, there was no limit with Carmen. She would always assist and try to help with any requests and always went above and beyond. After the whole process, I would like to think of Carmen as a friend. She keeps in touch and doesn't just drop you like other vendors would after your services have been fulfilled. Oh and she is fluent in Chinese! That was a bonus for me as she could communicate with my parents and really knew the Chinese wedding traditions. On the day of my wedding, everything went so smoothly, I honestly didn't have to bat an eye and everything turned out perfect! We were on schedule, everything was set up exactly the way I want, etc. She literally made my dream come true and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a planner!

    Amazing experience with Carmen

    Thank you Carmen and her team. They are absolutely amazing to work with.
    The wedding day came out perfectly, and it was exactly what I dreaming for. We hired Carmen as month of coordinator. Because we would like to design our wedding by ourselves, and Carmen shared lots of good advice and thoughts with us. We believe hiring Carmen was one of our best decision we made for.

    Great job on our wedding!

    We got married last October and had a wonderful time at our wedding, and we couldn't have done it without the hard work delivered by the Devoted To You team. My wife had a hard time convincing me of the need for a wedding planner, but in hindsight, I would definitely recommend their services to couples looking to enjoy their wedding day without having to worry about the necessary logistics of hosting a complex event.

    The DTY team communicated with us in a timely manner and responded to our concerns clearly during our planning stage. My wife and I had a hard time coming up with elegant ideas for a reception backdrop last minute but the DTY team really stepped up on our wedding day and surprised us with a beautiful backdrop framing our wonderfully decorated sweetheart table. We also really appreciated that they made sure everything ran smoothly up until we were sent off with sparklers, which they coordinated nicely with our guests.

    My husband and I would highly recommend Carmen Luk and her team at Devoted To You for her wedding planning and coordination services. Carmen went well beyond her scope of duty to ensure that we had a seamless and memorable day. Prior to the wedding, she met with the two of us on a number of occasions to understand what we wanted in our perfect day and help plan it. Knowing our MC was a bit nervous, she even met with him to ensure he was comfortable. She would always be prepared at these meetings with a plan of action as well as extra print outs for what was needed to be done. Carmen would also try to make herself available when it came to meeting with vendors (although she was not required to). Most importantly, she would be up front with us on costs of certain vendors and whether there were too many activities that would run over time.

    Carmen and her team assisted throughout the planning process from the recommendation and selection of vendors, to the coordination with the hotel and the set-up. In the lead up to the wedding, Carmen was always very responsive and quick to address any concerns we had. Despite having a cultural wedding with over 300 people, Carmen provided us with a detailed schedule and ensured the whole wedding party was on time. She was extremely helpful particularly with the logistics as we had many different events throughout the day (door games, tea ceremony, church ceremony, reception, dinner, etc). From the start of day when she arrived at 6am to prep the bridesmaids for the makeup artists to the dinner reception, Carmen and her team were very professional and would be helpful wherever possible and no matter how small the task. Her team even assisted me in my numerous outfit changes during the evening! Carmen is also respectful to parents/ relatives and was able to communicate to them in Cantonese and Mandarin which was a huge plus for us.

    Being a bit of a bridezilla who is a perfectionist, I was truly impressed with Carmen's work. She truly goes above and beyond to make everything perfect and everyone happy.
    We can't thank Carmen and her team enough for helping us with our wedding. We look forward to having them plan our future events :)

    Carmen helped me plan my proposal about a month ago, and I must say the outcome exceeded all my expectations. Every phase of the proposal was transitioned seamlessly even though the timing of each step was very difficult (our proposal involved helicopter and fireworks. The helicopter couldn't fly in the dark and fireworks fade against sunlight.). Carmen did the nigh impossible task of getting every star to align through professional knowledge and meticulous planning.

    During the process of planning the big event, Carmen had always been friendly, patient, and efficient. She also kept everything, for example the email exchanges between her and the vendors, entirely transparent, which I very much appreciated. Carmen's professionalism is not the ONLY reason I would recommend her to people. She also works with top-tier decorators, photographers/videographers, and other service-providers, so you can be completely worry-free if you decide to hire her as your planner/coordinator.

    All in all, it was a pleasure working with Carmen. Big thanks to Sara Baig of decoration, Joee Wong the photographer, and Derek Chan the cinematographer and of course Carmen the wonderful planner for making my proposal that much more magical.

    Working with Carmen and her team was an absolute pleasure.
    Carmen is very personable and we feel like we made a new friend through the process.
    She makes a genuine effort to always be involved and will follow through on any task or idea you may have interest in.

    Probably the best testimony we can give is that we were near stress-free. Throughout the planning process and even on the big day, friends and family commented on how we were the most relaxed couple they'd ever seen.
    Carmen and her team are very thorough with their planning. All of our initial concerns with budget, headcount (300) and day of scheduling were quickly washed away. Our challenges with the final reception vision; every suggestion, idea and referral shared by Carmen was spot on. Even the small uncontrollable mishaps we had on the wedding day became more entertaining than worrisome. We were very lucky to find someone we could trust completely with our wedding.

    We are very happy to say that our wedding was exactly what we wanted and we were able to enjoy every minute of it.

    Carmen was an excellent Wedding Planner for our wedding. We use her month off coordination service because we wanted to do most of the decision making ourself and just want a professional planner to keep us on track and take all the stress off of the Wedding Day. We meet with 5 different wedding planners and found that Carmen was the perfect match for us. Her professionalism and experience with Chinese and all other style of wedding was key to why we choose her. We connected together right away from our first meeting. Carmen understand our vison and gave us valuable advice and recommendations to make our wedding perfect. On our Wedding Day, we had door games, tea ceremony for both Parents, afternoon Photo, actual ceremony than Reception. Because of Carmen and Gloria the day went extremely smooth and on schedule with all activity we packed in. We would recommend Carmen and Devoted to You to any newly engaged couples looking to plan the perfect wedding. One recommendation is to start your planning 9-12 months before your wedding day.

    Why to be cautious of videographer Konrad Czystowski, if recommended

    Carmen is a professional and helped us figure out pieces for our wedding. There was one vendor that she recommended, Konrad Czystowski, which we wouldn't have met if it wasn't for Carmen and why we are not giving 5 stars. Although she tried to reach out to him on our behalf, he's continued to be difficult.

    I'm writing this to share our experience...so Konrad CZYSTOWSKI, I think he goes by Freshsox, but there's no reviews for his business and he's missing on all social media as he works off of referrals. In retrospect, that should raise alarm bells. A good videographer who cares about clients would open themselves up to feedback online, in addition to being referred. He has closed those channels and from our experience, we can see why. He did Carmen's wedding for a discount and offered us a rate of $5k for an 8 min highlight reel and 1 min trailer, which apparently is a discount, but who knows as rates are never posted in the wedding industry. However, after Covid cancelled our wedding and we were looking at new options, he took advantage of the situation. First he told us, he will raise our rates if we postpone, but he doesn't know by how much. In my opinion, this is a sign that he does NOT have his business together or care about his clients to do this during a PANDEMIC. Finally, he came back and said he wanted to charge us $1000 more...a full 20% surcharge above our $5k cash deal because we were unlucky enough to have our wedding cancelled by covid. He also said most of the vendors he talks to also is doing this, even though the vendors that I hand selected did not and were wonderful during this time. However, he was a referral from Carmen. He was dismissive when we tried to meet him halfway. After 2 months of stress and waiting for him to respond to our emails or of him avoiding our calls, he decides we don't deserve our money back and is trying to keep our $2500 deposit. Clearly after what he has done, he created a situation in which it was impossible to trust him or want to have him on an important day like our wedding.

    It's a difficult situation for all of us, but he chose to make it even more difficult. I wont go into the specifics, but he's not returning our $2500.

    Based on this circumstance we are all in, his contract requires that he returns our deposit if he can't perform due to an unforeseeable situation like a pandemic, but based on what we've seen, his biggest focus is money not how clients feel about what he's doing.

    Our learnings are, even if you are referred by someone, or they are touted as a 'pro' in the industry, it's hard to trust someone if they don't have real reviews. Honestly...we wish we were given better choices of videographers during the selection process. He said he shot for a Raptor in Miami and insinuated it was Chris Bosh to help win our business, but we never validated this. It's easy for people to say whatever when they don't have reviews or the work posted publicly. For your wedding, don't just look at the video portfolio, but keep in mind who you're hiring. It's that whole genius, but a jerk notion. You want to work with someone who is a genius, but also trustworthy and wont take advantage or is tough to work with during the worst of times. Because who know what can happen these days.

    The Best Wedding Planner!

    I first met Carmen for coffee when I was looking for a wedding planner for my husband and I. Carmen came extremely prepared, with a beautifully assembled package and her iPad to show me her past work. From speaking to Carmen for the first time, I knew that she was the most amazing wedding planner, as she exuded passion for her work and love for her clients.

    Planning a wedding can be overwhelming, as there is so many details involved and decisions to make, but Carmen made all of them easy for us. Carmen was extremely attentive to our needs and always went out of her way to be there for my husband and I throughout the process of planning our wedding. There was never a meeting that Carmen did not miss and did not provide her guidance and expertise. Carmen always made herself available to be there for my husband and I and to support us with patience and compassion. To highlight an example, Carmen booked a hotel room the night before our wedding just to ensure that she was there for us if there was anything we needed.

    If you are looking to hire a wedding planner, I strongly recommend you hire Carmen. Not only does Carmen have years of experience in the wedding industry, she has strong connections to other key vendors that will be integral for your wedding day. Carmen, with the help of her team, truly made our dream wedding come to life! We are so grateful for all that Carmen did for us and we wish her nothing but success and happiness planning more amazing weddings to come!
