Wedding Coordination - Events Your Way
I knew that going into my wedding I would need a wedding planner. When interviewing potential vendors, I noted to them that I wanted someone who could take my brain during the wedding and make the day stress free for me. We went with Events Your Way because of the positive reviews and I felt really comfortable with Faye. I had read the reviews on wedding wire and most of them note how attentive Faye was, not only with them, but attention to detail for their event. We booked her for partial and day of coordination. One thing we stipulated was that we wanted a two person coordination team so someone could be with each of us if need be, or do one thing while the others were doing another. Nearing towards our wedding day, Faye recommended a third person at no charge to assist with the logistics, we figured the more people, the better, as we had approximately 150 guests and 10 vendors guests.Sent on 13/02/2019
Faye was good at sending task lists and keeping us on schedule. It was extremely helpful to have an idea of what I needed to do and the timeline for specific months. I liked having someone keep track of everything. She would also suggest vendors and reviewed contracts for us to ensure that we were getting what we were suppose to. She offered to help out when I would get stressed.
Our wedding was held at The Old Mill over several rooms and included a lot of DIY. Faye and her team helped set up the décor and set up a 16ft candy table which was enjoyed by our guests. There were a lot of components to our wedding.
We did appreciate the work that Faye and her team put in before and during the event. At the end of the day, we had a great wedding and we are happily married!
There were areas that we felt could have been improved on – these have been discussed in detail with Faye:
I will admit that I did not note that the agreement for services was only for a certain time frame. Faye came early on the day of the wedding as I was nervous and worried about the details falling into place. While the crew did help dismantle some of the wedding items, my friends, family and an assistant from The Old Mill helped at the end of the night. I had to stop people from throwing out the cake and requested that it be packaged up. A whole room of chairs had to have their covers removed and bagged up for return – as a result of this confusion, one of the covers went missing and we had to make a payment to the rental company.
Our itinerary came late and as a result we felt rushed to get it out to people. Faye and I had a phone chat and discussed some things a couple of days before the wedding which were not implemented right.

Wedding- September 29/2018
Faye!! We can't thank you enough!!Sent on 03/10/2018
I opted out of having a wedding planner as i thought i could manage it all on my own. Roughly 2 months before the wedding i decided i needed help. Hiring Faye and her team was by far the best decision i made for my wedding and the best money i ever spent. I didnt have to think about a thing on my wedding day!!! She made everything happen and run so smoothly and everyone loved her! My famous line that night was 'ask Faye'! I will recommend her to everyone! I wish there was more i could do to thank her for everything she did.
Thanks Faye!!! Xoxoxoxoxooxo

Perfect wedding day!
As we approached our wedding date we knew that we needed to hire a day of coordinator to ensure all our planning went smoothly on our wedding day and that we could enjoy our day. After searching for the perfect coordinator for us, we came across Faye and immediately after speaking with her we knew she would ensure our wedding day ran smoothly. Not only did she take care of us on our wedding day, she also connected with all of our vendors prior to our wedding to ensure they had everything they needed. The two weeks before our wedding we way less stressful thanks to Faye. At our wedding, Faye took charge and made sure the room was set up perfect, ensure everyone in the wedding party was in the right spot at the right time and kept the reception on schedule. I know there was so much that happened behind the scenes that we aren't aware of and that's something we are so grateful to Faye for. We truly got to be guests at our own wedding and enjoyed our day as bride and groom. Thank you Faye!Sent on 07/11/2018

Invest in actually enjoying your special day!
Events Your Way was just fantastic. This duo really helped ensure things went smoothly. The were by far the most responsive vendor we dealt with and a delight to have around. They simply delt with things instead of pulling us into the weeds so we could just enjoy our wedding. Even my mom, who has exptremely high standards, can’t say enough good things about this pair. They had great ideas about repurposing decor after the ceremony and even ensured I stayed hydrated. Do yourself a favour and get these two on your team!Sent on 01/10/2018

Thank you Faye and Kyri!
Faye was a lifesaver. She made sure we didn't feel or notice if we were delayed, and got us back to schedule effortlessly (or so it seemed!). Her assistant Kyri was professional, caring and attentive. Faye understood my family dynamics and managed those with ease. I'd recommend her to all!Sent on 30/08/2018

Absolutely fantastic wedding planner!
We connected with Faye about a year before our wedding, and she was wonderfully helpful and professional from our first meeting to the day of our wedding! From her monthly timelines which kept us on track, to coordinating everything the day of, she truly put my mind at ease throughout this whole process. I couldn’t recommend her more! Thank you Faye!Sent on 05/09/2018

Best money we spent!
Faye was a huge help for us. We hired her as a “Day of” coordinator, but really she starts weeks ahead! She connected with our vendors to ensure timing, delivery, etc.Sent on 26/07/2018
Our venue had a short window for set up the day of our wedding, and she was able to make the place look amazing, while replying to my calls and emails throughout the morning and afternoon while I was getting ready and taking photos.
Faye took care of all the little details the day of so that we could focus on having fun and enjoying the day. She checked in with us whenever there were questions but she always had a solution to suggest.
I would definitely recommend Faye! She is friendly, attentive to detail, and helps the day (and weeks leading up) run smoothly!

4 thumbs up for Faye and Kyri
Faye and Kyri were great. They were so on top of things all night. They were very flexible and made a lot of last minute changes to the plan for the night that we had requested. They made the night go so smoothly and seemlessly and always had our best interests in mind. For example, they knew we loved our band yet we were planning to go out for sunset pictures right before the band started. They made sure the photographers would have us back in in time for the first set. The little things like this went a long way and were truly appreciated. They were also very assertive, when it was time to do something, they made sure we or whoever was up did it in a firm but polite way that kept everything on schedule but did not make us feel rushed or hurried. It was the perfect balance. They were great and I would highly recommend them to friends, family, and readers of this review.Sent on 28/06/2018
