COVID wedding expert!
I reached out to Karina in utter despair, our wedding was two months away and our venue was still closed. We wanted so badly to get married, but didn’t know what to do or where to start. After endless scrolling on Instagram about microweddings, I found Karina and reached out to her. She responded immediately, asked if she could give me a call, and gave us the best advice. She really turned everything around for us, helped us come up with a new plan VERY quickly, and delivered the microwedding of our dreams. If you work with Karina, you’ll be working with not only a very talented planner, but a super kind and compassionate person. She talked me down through all the crazy happening with the pandemic, and always had an answer for everything. She had great ideas, was incredibly detailed and was able to help bring all of our vendors on to our new plan. She truly went above and beyond to make sure that everything was perfect for us. Our wedding day was incredibly memorable and special, and I am so thankful every day that I found Karina that Saturday morning.Sent on 20/12/2020

My Advise...BOOK HER! She is simply the best!
There aren't enough words to express our gratitude to Karina! Our wedding day last month was a dream come true and it would not have been possible without her. Karina's guidance and support throughout the entire wedding planning process made planning our dream wedding an enjoyable experience.
Karina is such a great resource. She put our entire wedding together, helped source amazing vendors that lined up with our vision and created the BEST wedding day timeline I have ever seen! She remained open and honest with us the entire time and we quickly grew to really value her input and trust her.
Karina was a pleasure to work with. Her expertise and creative flair is second to none. It's clear that she loves what she does and it just comes so naturally to her.
So if you're still on the fence, reach out to her. You will not regret it! Booking with Karina was one of the best decisions we made.Sent on 18/10/2020

Working with Karina was a dream!
I got married at the Gladstone in December and hired Karina as my day of coordinator and let me tell you, it was one of the best decisions I could have made! She was professional, made me laugh, and truly made everything go off without a hitch. I pride myself on being organized and thorough, but Karina was always there to offer helpful advice, suggestions and reminders of things I hadn't yet thought of all while being respectful of our decisions and vision. She went above and beyond in every way imaginable and we loved working with her. There is a reason she's known in this city as the best. You will not regret working with her!Sent on 02/01/2020

Best in the Industry!!
My husband and I are so grateful to find Karina from the very beginning of our wedding planning. We sat down with her and felt comfortable right away. She listened to our ideas and she immediately gave us an amazing path to our dream wedding!! She is honest with her advice and very knowledgeable. The very first venue she recommended is actually the one we chose. We had a month of communication with her and she was very helpful on planning our traditional Jewish wedding. Our heartfelt thanks Karina for all your work. It was a pleasure. Anyone planning to get hitch, you need Karina in your life!Sent on 06/07/2020

Congratulations on your engagement and wedding plans - I am so excited for you!
As a planner and former bride, I realize that after becoming engaged, you have approximately 5 minutes of complete bliss before the landslide of questions fire in your direction like little darts all trying to deflate that beautiful glitter filled wedding balloon.
I have been planning weddings for long enough to know that I have the experience and skill set to ensure that your day runs beautifully and seamlessly. Former couples as well as many of my industry peers will claim that I am a bit of a Zen Master.
The weddings I work on are calm not chaotic... it is my goal to ensure that any external drama is dialed right down... the focus is on the two of you and this amazing day that you have planned.
No two weddings that I do are ever the same - I thrive on taking the things you love and desire & finding a way to ensure that they are present on the big day. Your wedding is reflective of you and all the things that spark your joy.
I am an excellent and experienced planner, but I am also a talented designer. I owned a luxury floral studio for many years. I also had my own floral design show on HGTV.
I bring beauty to all that I touch and am fluent in the language of flowers. Experience within the realm of luxury floral and decor is one of the special skills I bring to the table with each and every client I work with.
I am based in Toronto, I have an amazing husband and mind-blowinly adorable son. I love to travel and am open to destination wedding work.
I work extremely well with Canadian Ex-Pats getting based in the US/UK and Europe. Planning from abroad has it's own set of challenges, but I have worked with many couples not based in Toronto and have found a very simple and successful model to make the process as stress free as it can be.
I am also extemely skilled in the department of short turn around planning windows. Not everyone has the desired 12-18 months of planning... (I had 30 days to plan my wedding and still managed a printed invite, vera wang gown, live band and 4 tier cake ) - it's all possible and can even be quite fun and exciting. So, if you need to get hitched quickly - I'm likley the best fit for the job.
