How they work
Impresario Events believes that every wedding is a unique reflection of their couple and that their role is in partnership with them as an advisor, guide and trusted friend.

We couldn't have done it without Zerlene and her team!
Selecting Impresario Events as our day-of-coordinator for our wedding was one of the best decisions that we made! Zerlene helped us build an extremely detailed itinerary for the wedding day and was very responsive to any changes that we made. On the day, Zoya and Karishma was present to help ensure that everything went along smoothly. When our entree was delayed, they took it upon themselves to coordinate with the serving staff, our DJ and MC to rearrange our itinerary to ensure that none of the speeches and activities are missed, and that all of the important moments would be captured by our photographer/videographer. Needless to say, the wedding went on without a glitch, and they made our happiness their top priority. I was extremely calm and relaxed knowing that I had them behind the scenes, and it allowed us to enjoy the wedding fully. I would recommend Impresario Events to anyone!Sent on 02/07/2019

I can’t even express how happy I am that we chose Zerlene and Impresario Events for our day-of coordination! I felt so at ease on my wedding day knowing that she and her assistants had it all under control. Zerlene was incredibly organized and her experience in the industry shows. She was in touch well before our wedding to put together a detailed itinerary and ensure she had contact info for EVERYONE involved. It seemed like a lot of detail at first (and a lot of things I wouldn’t have even thought of without her list) but it forced me to get organized and was an absolute lifesaver in the end. She connected with all of our vendors the week of, and if anything did run off track I honestly had no idea (which is exactly what you need in a coordinator on the most important day!). She ran our rehearsal, navigated some family tension like a pro and did an unbelievable job setting up our décor. Most importantly, she was cool and calm, and able to quickly adjust the plan on the fly. She knew our itinerary down to the minute so our MC didn’t have to watch the clock or worry about the added responsibility – she’d quietly cue the next item but it never felt intrusive. She is such a perfectionist that she even advised our MC to delay his next introduction or our meat would be overcooked! Our guests are still raving about the “perfect” beef tenderloin all thanks to Zerlene…she thinks of everything! Even our rental vendor raved about Zerlene, and was really impressed that she took the time to reach out to them in advance as not all coordinators go to this effort.Sent on 17/07/2019
I am still in shock that my wedding day went by with zero glitches and zero stress…you will NOT be disappointed with Zerlene on your team for your big day.

You will thank yourself later for hiring Impresario!
We are so happy with the service we received from Zerlene. She helped make our day truly wonderful, and the process leading up to it infinitely less stressful.
Vendors: Due to her extensive experience, Zerlene was able to recommend numerous vendors (venues, photographers, DJs, invitations, flowers, wedding dresses, etc.) that fit our wishes and budget for the day. Additionally, she was prompt to investigate new vendors we wished to investigate. I was truly impressed by the quality and caliber of professional contacts she had. It was also a huge relief knowing that Zerlene had previous positive experiences with these vendors – I didn’t have to worry about getting any less than expected.
Communication: Zerlene has excellent communication skills. She communicates very effectively and efficiently, and always promptly responded any questions or concerns we had. As an individual with a very busy schedule, I was very thankful to have a planner who was always willing to work around my schedule. While Zerlene is a very well established and busy planner – you will feel like her only client.
The Details: There are a lot of things that go into planning a wedding, many of which I would have never thought of. Thankfully, Zerlene is incredibly organized and experienced, so she ensures that every detail of the big day is taken care of. I honestly can’t stress enough how nice it is to not have to worry – “have I forgotten something”, because I knew Zerlene was on top of it.
Day-of: Our day quite literally went perfectly. I loved Zerlene’s organization day of the wedding because she ran the day from the background so to not disrupt your enjoyment of the celebrations. But she quietly kept everything moving perfectly on schedule. I know my MC’s were so thankful for her. They were able to celebrate and enjoy the night without having to watch the clock every moment as Zerlene would cue them right on time. Zerlene also has excellent taste. I left the table arrangements largely to her judgement, and they turned out beautifully.
Again, our day could not have turned out more perfectly, and the process was infinitely less stressful due to Zerlene’s expertise. I can’t recommend her enough!

Thank you so much zerlene. Xoxo
I am not sure how many texts I have sent you but I just wanted to say that you are one of the best people I have met and honestly I really can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for me and Rob. I am still so excited and wish my wedding never ended. You know before Sunday people kept telling me to enjoy every moment and don’t stress about the small things on the day of - I really didn’t need to worry about a thing. Let date back to when we first met.
Zerlene came to me so well prepared with all the documents, samples, timelines, and explained thoroughly what I should look at when doing a wedding at okw. Honestly she knew exactly what she was doing and I most definitely wanted to tell everyone that : let her run it all. You won’t regret it!
After our first meeting, I kid you not I was definitely messaging Zerlene quite a bit (10 months before the wedding this was, ha ha) about different things, wanted to get more ideas, and she was so responsive! Well guys let’s not do that though give her a damn break cuz she works so many weddings every week!
Closer to our day she sent us full itinerary, we had a thorough phone discussion, talked about everything and how we wanted to run the day, She gave such great ideas and I honestly just knew my day was going to be awesome.
She came to rehearsal and yes I made everyone come all the way to DT Toronto on a Friday night before Labour Day Long Week #worsttrafficever. Well you know what, she showed up so well put together of course and ran my rehearsal and got all my ducks in line.
On the day of - we had no issues communicating at all, my florist accidentally delivered the flowers to the wrong floor, she took care of that, I changed my itinerary last minute and had my hair changed in a different room at the hotel, she made sure Hordeurves and water and drinks were delivered right in front of me. She worked so so so well with my decor, Hotel Wedding Specialist, DJ, Officiant, Banquet Team, Florist, Photography and everyone else, literally I felt like all they did was look at each other once and everything fell into place. She made sure my money box was locked away, queued us all in where the music was just right, took care of everyone, always came to check on me, did all my decor favours right, returned everything to my suite. Honestly - I had a perfect night! I hope you had fun too and we love you so much! I am so glad I got to say bye as well and it really means a lot to me that you put that much effort into my wedding!!!!!!! Xxxxx :’( Good luck with everything and I will be sure to keep referring my friends to you!!!
Also - her price point? Can not be any better than that!!!!!!!!!!!Sent on 04/09/2018
