Worst Experience Ever
My fiance and I had a very short engagement; we got engaged June 9, 2021, and were married August 28, 2021. Our wedding turned from a small COVID wedding, to the full 9 yards. When this happened I panicked. We all buckled down and were doing a great job at planning, but it was taking up every waking second of my life and I thought it would be easier to hire a professional. Breanna was amazing at selling her services and said even though I was a last minute bride, not to worry. She said she would do everything and my only job was to pay the vendors; “all the bride has to do is show up and say I do.” To have someone coordinate the vendors and ensure the little details on our wedding day were taken care of, were the biggest reasons I hired Breanna. Unfortunately, hiring Breanna as my wedding planner actually made planning my wedding more exhausting and frustrating. The ONLY things that went wrong at our wedding were the tasks Breanna was responsible for:
-It was near impossible to get Breanna to call the vendors and coordinate. I had to essentially force her to call vendors on my behalf, and when I would ask I would receive attitude from her “it’s probably easier for you to call since you’ve already been in contact with them.” To make matters worse Breanna would give me instructions on who to coordinate “make sure ______ is there at 11:30 am sharp,” “for chairs tell them they need to be finished setting up by 1:30.” This was what I had hired her to do, not the other way around?
-Breanna did not confirm my timeline with the vendors. The only thing she did was send an email 3 days before my wedding, and did not touch base to ensure the email was received. My make-up artist said the email ended up in her junk folder (luckily I touched base with everyone to make sure they would be there).
-We asked Breanna to arrange a canoe at Bowness park for us to take our wedding photos in and she said she would take care of it- they had no idea we were coming. We ended up having to wait over half an hour in line for a canoe while scrambling to find photo ID to rent one- which we did not know we needed.
-I had hired a decorator when I was planning on my own, and Breanna preferred I used her decorator instead. Her decorator would not get back to me or give me quotes, and promised things that she did not have. Five days before my wedding I still had no idea about decorations, and Breanna was no help. She just recommended I go back to the decorator I was first working with. Another fine example of how Breanna actually set my wedding planning backwards. Luckily, my first decorator ended up saving the day. Stephanie at “Lavish Linen and Decor Rentals” ended up setting up all of my tables/ decor and did more wedding planning for me than Breanna herself.
-Breanna made me feel like I was an inconvenience to her the entire time. When Breanna dropped the ball on coordinating an important quote I needed, her response was “unfortunately I can’t read minds lol.” Quite unprofessional. The sound system at the reception hall was complicated and I had to convince her to test it in advance “I also can't come into the city a 3rd time for the wedding.” Not sure why her business is based in Calgary if she doesn’t like driving into the city. Getting her to help me with anything was like pulling teeth.
-In her contract it says “help with the queuing of music and bridal party entrance.” Our wedding music kept cutting out, the wrong songs were played at the wrong time.. it was a disaster. She turned to my maid of honor who was waiting to walk down the aisle and said with attitude “this is why people should hire a DJ.” I did hire a DJ, based upon her recommendations. She specifically told me not to hire one before the dance because she would take care of everything. Any time something went wrong, Breanna would blame someone else and not take responsibility. I would have hired a DJ for the ceremony if she told me to.
-In her contract it says she assists with the timing for the cutting of the cake. I even paid the caterer to cut the cake for me, and it was never done. I ended up taking home my entire wedding cake and not a single guest was served cake after my husband and I took photos with it. She did not make sure anything went smoothly that day or on time- my bridal party ended up being responsible for everything.
-While we were taking photos at Bowness park, my MC was calling my maid of honor to ask what time dinner was, because Breanna was not answering her phone and was nowhere to be found. They were calling from the reception hall, where was Breanna?
I could write a review that is ten times longer than this with every unfulfilled promise, or ways in which Breanna showed zero attention to detail or care for my wedding, but my point in writing this review is to warn brides NOT TO HIRE BREANNA. I cannot emphasize how much smoother my wedding would have been had I not of hired Breanna.
By Far Exceeded Every Expectation I had!!
Again, thank you Breanna and Jaina for the constant support and making our day absolutely perfect!!

An Amazing Addition to our Special Day
Yes, planning a wedding is stressful regardless of whether you hire a planner; however, ITM definitely made the process a lot smoother. Breanna was able to give us honest reviews of vendors we were unsure about and help us narrow down our choices, both in regards to pricing as well as personality. When our photographer and his second shooter both came down with COVID only two days before the wedding, Breanna contacted at least two dozen other photographers to ensure we were still able to have that part of our day covered; and though our photographer ended up being a backup on short notice, we are still immensely happy with what was able to be done. Jaina also did a great job as our day-of-coordinator as well, making sure we kept on schedule with an appropriate margin for error (and a bit of extra time for ice cream!).
Overall, my husband and I are extremely happy with the service and help we received from Breanna and ITM- both in regards to the planning leading up to as well as execution day-of - and we definitely recommend them for planning your special day!

I have flourished in the wedding industry for over 6 years. I grew up in the beautiful Foothills of Alberta as a 5th generation homesteader. I moved to Kelowna BC in 2014 to attend the Centre for Arts and Technology (CATO); where I graduated with a diploma from the Events and Promotional Management program.
Since graduating, I have immersed myself in the wedding industry. Starting off by working with a décor company in Kelowna where I had hands-on experience with wedding centerpieces, backdrops, flowers, balloons, textiles and more. When I moved back to Alberta I joined a local event company where my event skills continued to expand. I was apart of the planning and delivery of a variety of events including trade shows, markets, launch parties, paint nights, birthdays and of course weddings.
Outside of work I like to enjoy my free time either in the kitchen cooking up something new, spending time relaxing with my cats, going on adventures with friends, crafting while binge watching my extensive DVD collection or taking a weekend away from all the hustle and bustle of life.
With the launching of In This Moment Weddings my goal is to assist couples in the planning and execution of their wedding day. I have a true passion for weddings and creating events filled with love, beauty and laughter. I believe every couple deserves to enjoy every moment of their wedding, because every moment is precious.
Hi, I’m Jaina Sigouin! Currently, I am a full-time university student working towards a sociology degree then I will be doing the after-degree for elementary education. I have dreamt of becoming a teacher since I was little; my goal is to be an advocate for students who struggle with learning disabilities. During the COVID-19 lockdowns, I picked up the hobby of painting. Although I am just a beginner, I have truly fallen in love with it. My favourite painting I have done so far was a Christmas Nutcracker. I also have been known to binge watch entire Netflix series on the days I have off. I love going to the mountains and being outside, but my new favourite way to spend a day off is by doing a painting and watching netflix.
In high school, I fell in love with event planning and leadership. I have always enjoyed planning parties for myself and friends but during high school, I learned I loved planning larger events. During grade 11 I had the privilege of helping one of my teachers plan her wedding and from there I was hooked. That experience opened the door to a whole new world!
Breanna and I had the privilege of meeting in 2019; I felt an automatic connection with her that makes it seem like I’ve known her for years. She is the big sister I never had. She has become a role model and my motivation to excel in the wedding industry, I sincerely believe I would not be the person I am today without her. I am very excited to be a part of her journey with In This Moment Weddings as we help couples create and execute their dream wedding.
