Karina was absolutely lovely to work with! We had met with a few wedding planners prior, but as soon as we met Karina, we knew that she would be the best fit for us - she is super witty, very organized, and we loved how she was so proactive! We had a short engagement of 6 months, ... View more and Karina was not overwhelmed with the timeline. She put us at ease and helped us get it all done from securing an amazing venue, to signing with some of the best vendors of the industry, all while staying on budget. She never pushed us to spend more money and always let us know were we could cut without compromising the overall quality! Karina has very refined taste and we always trusted her recommendations!! She was very responsive over email, answering our questions at all times of the day/night! She helped us stay organized and made sure we weren't dealing with too much at once. Thanks to Karina, we were able to pull off the wedding without a hitch! She was incredible the days leading up to the wedding! Karina really delivered on the day of the wedding, organizing and coordinating arrival times with all the vendors and helpers, kept everyone on schedule, and kept the whole day flowing. She made sure the bridal party were fed and watered, helped with some last minute meal changes, and she even steamed my veil!! We had so much fun at the wedding and didn't have to worry about anything because we knew Karina was behind the scenes making sure everything would be perfect. We enjoyed working with Karina so much and miss her now that our wedding is over! Karina's services were also very reasonably priced (compared to other wedding planners) and we were lucky to have worked with her!

Karina planned my June 2016 wedding in Toronto and we could not be more thrilled with how it all came together. The first thing I did when we got engaged was to hire Karina, and after an 18 month long engagement, I feel both a) fully qualified to comment; and b) compelled to ... View more share with the world that I never, ever could have done it without her. It's been nearly 6 weeks and we are still hearing from our guests that it was one of, if not the best wedding they've ever attended. It is 100% thanks to Karina and the amazing team of vendors she helped me put together. Karina knows the wedding industry inside and out, and it shows. She helped me manage expectations, and prioritize tasks, budgets and timelines; introduced me to vendors who not only did beautiful work, but who were an absolute pleasure to deal with; helped me navigate piles of confusing contracts and payment plans; and was readily available to answer every single (often dumb) question I had over the 18 months we worked together. This - all before the wedding day. On our actual wedding day, everything ran incredibly smoothly. If there were any problems, even a minor glitch, we didn't know about it. Because of all the planning and Karina being there to make sure all details were in order and everything was delivered, set up and serviced, our wedding day felt easy, relaxed, and was so much fun. Karina is honestly just excellent at what she does; she's extremely effective and also very efficient. Plus, she has great taste so you really can't go wrong following her advice, but she also gives you the space to make your own decisions and design your wedding just as you imagined it (she will pull your head out of the clouds too, if your imagination is running wild). Bonus that relative to other Toronto event planners I investigated, I found her to be very reasonably priced. As my mom said, "Karina is worth her weight in gold."
Karina was the best investment of my wedding day - hands down We hired her for day of coordination. She assisted me in creating a day of schedule. She had incredible recommendations from floral delivery to photo locations. She was helpful, supportive, and made the day run smooth ... View more and effortless. If you do one thing to improve your wedding day - Hire Karina. She will work behind the scenes with all vendors and make sure your day is perfect.

Karina is the most amazing wedding planner a girl could ask for! I live out of town and was hosting over 200 people for a wedding the Royal Ontario Museum - a large venue that requires everything be brought in (even the cutlery!). Karina made this process seamless by recommending ... View more vendors she knew and trusted, organizing mock-ups and meetings, and coordinating day of to get all the vendors in to set up in a timely fashion. Karina also helped me find hair and makeup artists within my budget and remembered small details like "reserved for family" signs on the first row in the ceremony. She made our wedding day so magical! Every last detail was taken care of and even small things I didn't know where going on behind the scenes I see now on the video were just perfect. Karina took over on game day so I could just focus on enjoying myself. She is everything you would want in a wedding planner and more! I cannot recommend Karina enough, invite her to join your wedding planning and your life will get so much easier and your wedding will be all the more enjoyable!

Karina was an absolute gem throughout our whole wedding planning process. From the moment I met her, I knew I had to work with her! To me, she "gets it" - She has excellent opinions about all possible wedding venues in Toronto, she wasn't daunted by planning a wedding in under 8 ... View more months, and she didn't push us to spend. She knows what is chic, elegant, and worth it, and what isn't. Karina is a wedding industry veteran and it shows throughout every step of the process, from touring venues to selecting flowers to organizing a seamless wedding day. She has many connections within the industry which allows her to negotiate in her client's favour while maintaining an excellent relationship with the vendor. Karina's responsiveness was legendary - She never missed an email of mine and had an answer for every single question that I posed, almost always within 24 hours. I felt like I could ask her anything without judgement, and found that I trusted her implicitly. The day of the wedding was completely seamless. We all enjoyed the day as if we were guests - Karina took care of every last detail and made sure that I was at ease, happy, and relaxed the whole day. My family still can't believe how smoothly the day went. I highly recommend Karina. She's an incredible planner and an even more lovely woman to work with!
