    Best Day, Best Planners Ever!!

    I first found out about Moonlit through a wedding we attended in 2021 and wow - from that very moment I knew I NEEDED them for my own wedding in September 2022. Everything about them is simply amazing!! Sam was always available to provide guidance or answer any questions that popped up during my 6-week takeover, & even before in the months leading up. Rachel was my day of coordinator on-site & did everything I asked for and MORE. Execution of my vision was 10/10.
    If you want planners that feel like real friends and will do anything to see you happy..... you absolutely need this team!!

    Highly highly recommend

    Sam was so amazing to work with from start to finish, even though we were Australia and she was in Canada. She made planning an overseas wedding so easy and took away a heap of our stress! All of our guests loved her as well :)

    Our Dream Wedding Came True! Responsive, Great Listener, Organized, Great Design

    First off Sam was EXACTLY the person we were looking for – which amid the pandemic we are so thankful that we found her.

    Sam took her time to understand the vision we had for our wedding day and where she could help in regards to making that vision a reality. From its infancy to the final product – it truly was an enjoyable experience. Her vendor recommendations were all absolutely perfect as well – not sure we could have been any happier with the vendor team we had!

    The professionalism was such a huge point for us as planning a destination wedding is difficult in its own right – doing it during COVID-19 is another thing entirely. What I can say definitively is that Sam was timely in answering any questions we had whether that was through emails, getting on FaceTime with us, or talking to our POCs at the venues this allowed us to have peace of mind the entire time leading up to our wedding day / reception day.

    Both our Wedding Day and Reception Day were by far the most memorable day for both Sarah and I – it could not have gone any better! The views from Sea to Sky and the ambiance at SLCC were exactly how we envisioned and more. The details to the design and execution of how everything turned out were beyond our expectations. Not to mention the fact that we gained a new friend through it all.

    Thank you so very much Sam and Moonlit Events Co. we could not have done it without you and look forward to so many other precious moments you make come true for others in the future.

    You Need them!

    The team here is outstanding !!! I don’t know what I would have done without them. My design and execution day of was flawless and a dream
    Come true. I was a Covid bride with 3 different wedding dates and 3 venues… and Moonlit was right there helping me through each change and postponement. It wasn’t easy , but they helped reassure me that everything was going to be perfect, and it was!!

    These ladies are truly amazing!

    There aren’t enough words to describe how amazing Estef and Paola were to work with on our wedding day. We hired Estef to help with our month of coordination but, we should have re-distributed our budget to hire her for full planning. Her organization, attention to detail and design eye are truly remarkable. Estef and Paula helped put our wedding vision to life while being the main point of contact for all of our vendors. Multiple times, they went completely out of their way and above and beyond their job description to help our day go as smoothly as possible. We were truly able to fully enjoy the wedding day knowing that everything would be taken care for set up, tear down and the day itself.
    Thank you so much Estef and Paola, you were amazing!

    Absolutely amazing!

    Estefania was nothing short of amazing from the beginning! She helped us coordinate our wedding timeline and ensure that everything ran smoothly. Even when there were a few hiccups, she made sure they got sorted out quickly. I would reccommend Estefania to anyone looking for an enthusiastic, but professional individual for their wedding planning needs!

    My favourite planners to work with!

    I've had the pleasure of working with Samantha many times for her couples vendor as wedding videographer. I always know that my couple's will be looked after and feel comfortable when Sam is in charge.

    Sam has a great eye for design and for giving her clients unique attention - really listening to their needs. She's kind, thoughtful and not too mention.. one of the funniest people I know (this always adds a lot of fun and lightness to the day).

    If you are looking for a planner for your wedding, choosing Moonlit Events Co. will be one of the best choices you will make in creating the vendor team of your dreams!

    Incredible planner- organized, detailed, seamless

    Sam was such a dream to work with. Everything from planning to detailed logistical organization, vendor communication, creative input and execution was amazing and so helpful. She made everything run seamlessly and feel so much less stressful.

    Simply the best

    It was an absolute dream to work with Sam. Her knowledge and expertise guided me through all of the big (and small) decisions along the way - I truly could not have planned my wedding without her. I was incredibly impressed with her level of organization and attentiveness throughout the planning process and on the day of the wedding. Everything ran smoothly thanks to her and we had the most beautiful day. Highly recommend!

    An absolute MUST

    My now husband and I planned our wedding together with Samantha from Moonlit Events and, we were part of the 2020 weddings that had to postponed due to COVID-19. Sam not only helped us go through it, but she also help us planing a second -almost- completely different wedding for 2022 after our original Venue was not longer available.

    I can't tell you how easy and seamless everything was (both times). Sam is a professional and such a resourceful planner.

    She went above and beyond in our wedding day and thanks to her and our amazing vendors we had the opportunity to fully enjoy that time with our family and friends, cero stress.

    If you are getting married, give yourself and your partner the opportunity to enjoy the planing process and the actual day by having Sam on your side. Hands down one of the best experiences we'll ever have thanks to such a dedicated team of wonderful people.

Estefania Ochoa
Owner & Creative Director

I realized early on in my life that my passion was transforming spaces and styling just about anything. I took my interest and love for design to the next level by channeling it into Event Planning. After graduating from the Special Events Planning program at George Brown College in Toronto, I furthered my knowledge of design and planning in some of the most beautiful venues in the city, planning events ranging from product launches to luxurious weddings and baby showers.


After some time, I found out I was expecting a baby myself! Still set on my true passion and furthering my career while tackling mom life, I chose to put all of my experience to use and launch Events by Estefania.

When I am not planning events, I enjoy being with my husband, daughter, family and friends. I love a good book, 90’s R&B, a classic pair of sneakers, Quentin Tarantino movies and pasta. I live for tropical getaways, am a little too obsessed with HomeSense, and could spend hours exploring a natural food store.

I can’t wait to meet you and get the planning started!

Lead Wedding Planner

In my last year of high school - everyone knew that they wanted to go into business school, med school, become a lawyer or had some sort of plan. I, on the other hand, had no idea what to do! I kept searching and thinking what I wanted to pursue as my career, but I wanted it to be something that I would love and be 100% passionate about. One early-morning, I literally woke up and had the biggest AHA moment. Not exactly sure why or how, but I knew I was made to be a wedding planner!


I loved working with people, and I also loved organizing and being involved in every aspect of ANY type of event for as long as I could remember. I am a romantic at heart and love celebrating love! So, I searched and decided to begin by studying Marketing and obtain all the business skills necessary to create my own business. I helped all my friends with their weddings, worked with different vendors, and was part of different local events, and worked selling wedding gowns while in school.

After years and years of working my way into the wedding industry, I met Estef! We just CLICKED and have embarked in this wild and exciting journey together. I cannot wait to be able to be a part of your special day and make it come to live - just the way you've dreamed!
