    Couldn't have done it without her!

    I cannot speak highly enough about Gloria.

    The first time my wife and I met Gloria we could tell that she had the perfect attitude, energy and knowledge to help craft our perfect wedding. We were the type of clients that had no idea what we wanted, other than to get married. Gloria learned about what we loved each other, what we loved about life and helped us plan the best wedding to celebrate that love. It is no exaggeration to say that our wedding wouldn't have been half as good without her care, dedication and input.

    She offered a full suite of services, had great knowledge of local vendors, and helped manage almost every aspect of our wedding both in the lead up to and on the day. We knew didn't have to worry because we knew Gloria was taking care of it.

    Do yourself a favour and hire her!

    Best decision ever!!

    Hiring Gloria and her team at Historia Wedding & Event Planning was the single best decision we made when planning our wedding!

    Having Gloria on site on our wedding day alleviated ANY stress or worry and allowed us to truly enjoy our day without any stress!!! I am in the event industry and was very worried that I would find myself "working" on my wedding day, but I am so thrilled to say that Gloria never even gave me that opportunity!!

    She was SO on the ball, had a handle on every moving part (and we had a LOT of moving parts lol) and she just managed the day beautifully!

    She was incredibly thorough in all of our communications, catching anything I missed or overlooked. Her attention to detail is unlike anyone else!!! She was always very quick to reply and truly took time to address every issue/concern. To Gloria, you are not just a one off client or a number... she cares about you, your event, and gives you her 100% attention each and every time.

    You NEED at least a day of coordinator, but having a month of coordinator really takes a lot of stress away from you so you can focus on other things! Trust me.... it's not something you want to miss out on!!

    Thank you Gloria for everything!!

    Michelle + Mike

    Gloria is amazing!

    Gloria was utterly fantastic and our wedding was absolutely amazing because of her.

    She has immense knowledge of the wedding industry and saved us countless hours of our own research (and stress). She’s studious, diligent, and organized which helped us keep on top of the decisions we needed to make, as well as on top of ensuring vendors were coordinated with promptly too. As well, she is caring and thoughtful and just an absolute joy to work with.

    Gloria was consistently professional and responsive with us; we could get in touch at any time and she was always prompt and courteous. She was even helping to plan our wedding on HER honeymoon - that’s how dedicated she is to ensuring that her clients are taken care of!

    And no request was too strange, Gloria took everything we’d come up with in stride and worked to execute our vision, wild whims included: We had specific wishes for ceremony seating and she made sure everybody got to where we wanted them to be. I wanted tiramisu on my wedding day; she had the venue deliver it to my seat, and checked in with me to ensure it had happened as promised.

    The day-of, she did so much behind the scene that I didn’t even have to think about. I had a super low-stress day; all I had to do was get ready. She ensured all the vendors showed up, had all the decor set up at the venue for us, and was on top of any little issue that needed to be taken care of. I’m sure there were lots of things she did that I never noticed, but I know for sure she teleported into the room that we were taking photos in as soon as the men’s boutonnieres started needing pins. She also helped to corral us, our wedding party, and our guests to make sure we stuck to the agreed-upon photography timeline.

    Seriously, you will never regret hiring Gloria to help plan your special day. We only wish we’d hired her sooner! Thank you so much Gloria, for your huge part in our unforgettable day!

    Historia Wedding and Event Planning's reply:

    Bri, this is possibly the kindest review ever! Thank you so much for all your thoughtful words. I wanted to make sure everything went off without a hitch (a little bit of honeymoon work wasn't that big a deal!) and I am so glad that all of it made things worthwhile for you. I am delighted to have made your wedding that much better :)
    There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes - I really appreciate you recognizing that - and it is so worth it when I get to see you happy and relaxed, enjoying the day for all the special moments it provides. Seeing your blissful demeanor and endless smiles - it was all I needed! And you WERE endlessly smiling, which just touched my heart! You two are a perfect match - bound to have a beautiful, prosperous future, full of love.

    Highly Reccomend Working with Historia Wedding and Event Planning!

    My husband and I had the privilege of working with Gloria for our month of and day of wedding co-ordination. She helped us navigate the many difficult tasks that arise in the month leading up to the wedding day, some of which we were unaware of and not prepared for before Gloria walked us through them. The one thing all of our friends and family keep saying about the day is how perfectly and smoothly the day went by! We fully credit that to Gloria, she took care of every detail, from early morning right through to tear down at the end of the night. Our families and ourselves would not have been able to relax and enjoy the day the way we did if we didn't have Gloria! I highly recommend working with Historia Wedding and Event Planning!

    You will not regret hiring Gloria!

    We made the greatest decision when we hired Gloria for our wedding! With me working two jobs and my husband working a full time job, on top of everything else we were balancing, we just knew that we wouldn't have time to plan our dream wedding.

    Without Gloria, I don't think we would have had the wedding that we did. She brought our vision of Hawaii Meets Japan to life!

    We had to deal with a COVID wedding, which meant postponing our wedding reception to the year after. Gloria helped us plan our COVID ceremony for 2021, and then our post-COVID reception for 2022. Through all the headaches of dealing with restrictions and postponing everything, she stayed professional through it all. She helped us deal with all the vendors through the postponing process, which saved us from the headache of it all.

    Through all the changes and last-minute decisions, Gloria was very patient and understanding through it all. She is very thorough with everything, making sure to look at all the finer details. She did such an amazing job making sure that we were on top of all the tasks that we needed to do, especially because we were always so busy with daily life. Gloria was also very responsive and prompt when replying back to our emails.

    She truly took the stress away from us when planning our wedding. We couldn't have done it without her!

    We are so very thankful and appreciative of everything Gloria and her team did for us on our wedding day to make it super special! You will not regret your decision in hiring Gloria and her team for your wedding journey!

    Brought our vision to life

    After having spoken to a number of potential wedding planners it was a pleasure to meet Gloria. From the beginning Gloria took the time to get to know myself and my husband, as well as really listen to our visions for our big day. The Journey from the beginning of the planning process to the conclusion went very smoothly because we had Gloria as part of our team. We were in regular contact, no question was insignificant and any and all of our concerns were addressed right away. Once our big day arrived we could not have been happier, all the details big and small came together beautifully. Gloria exemplified professionalism, she kept all the balls in the air making sure all details that either my husband and I were responsible for or herself was dealt with promptly. To anyone looking for a wedding planner that will go the extra mile, help alleviate the stress of the many details involved in wedding planning and that will point you towards vendors that will be great complements to your shared vision Gloria is the planner for you.

    Thank you Preet, this is such a thoughtful review for you to write. I'm so happy to have been a part of your wedding day and to make it something special (and easier!) for you. You are both two wonderful people that ANY planner would have loved to have! Wishing you two so much happiness in your marriage!

    Amazing experience

    Guys, if you are looking for a wedding planner, Gloria is the obvious choice. She was wonderful with us, even when we weren't the most responsive. She was patient, friendly and extremely caring. We were having our wedding in Toronto but my husband and I both live in Montreal, and Gloria made the wedding planning process so much easier. Without her, we would have been completely freaked out! To be honest, I didn't believe in hiring a wedding planner in the first place, and thank god my hubsand convinced me because Gloria made our experience a lot less stressful and much more enjoyable :)

    Historia Wedding and Event Planning's reply:

    Thank you Marylyna, your review means a lot! And I am so delighted to have made this a very positive experience :) You and Alfonso are both amazing people and make a beautiful couple - wishing you so much happiness and exciting new adventures together!

    Gloria is a wonderful wedding planner!

    I had always heard that planning a wedding is one of the most stressful things you can do but Gloria took all the stress away. She really took the time to get to know us, and she earned our trust very quickly. We cannot thank her enough for all her help, and would whole-heartedly recommend her to others.

    Historia Wedding and Event Planning's reply:

    So glad to have made your wedding day that much easier for you, Lorena :) Working with you two was a great pleasure for me and I always enjoyed our meetings together. It felt very natural getting to know you both. Wishing you and Daniel so much happiness and good fortune for this new chapter of your lives!
