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!

Karina was our Day-Of planner, but it was really so much more than that! From the time we met 5 months pre-wedding, we knew that Karina was the person for us. My fiance left that meeting calling her a charming, spit-fire. She was open to working with weddings of any budget, was ... View more unpretentious, and told me when I truly didn’t need any extra services of hers that I thought of purchasing. She responded to my incessant emails of concerns, questions, and anxious bridal ramblings. There were lots of planner websites out there, but having someone who is actually experienced was so beyond valuable. A moment I won’t forget happened when I was dropping off items at the venue the day before the wedding. I looked up to see Karina unexpectedly standing in the doorway asking what she could help me with. It made me feel that she cared about our wedding as much as we did, & we weren’t just her couple of the week. I learned early in my engagement that the wedding industry can be a giant machine in which it’s easy to feel small. But I felt special during every meeting we had. Karina was already familiar with some of the vendors that we had connected with on our own. And I wouldn’t put a price on how much peace of mind that provided me. She rallied our 12 vendors that were involved with setting-up the wedding day-of, including 9 that were involved in the minute-to-minute events of the night and needed meals arranged. She made sure everyone was on the same schedule & doing what was expected. My mother had been hesitant to have a planner but said right after that Karina was our best investment. I totally agree. That day, I didn't have to lift a finger or have a thought cross my mind because she took care of everything. She had everyone in sync, & I was able to focus on just being present & enjoying every moment. The night was fabulous and the unexpected things that arose were smoothed out into a seamless, elegant evening that our friends are still talking about. I'm so very grateful.
