Best decision we made!

We cannot say enough good things about Carlee & how amazing it was to work with her to make our wedding dreams at Nita Lake Lodge come true. As someone who has a hard time letting others help for fear of anything less than perfect I was nervous to have a planner, but I cannot stress how much faith & trust I had in Carlee after our meetings together. Each time I mentioned to another one of our vendors that Carlee was our coordinator they praised us for making such a great choice! My husband & I have since talked to several of our friends who are planning their weddings & each time he says that hiring Carlee was the best decision we made. The days leading up to the wedding she sent out emails to each vendor double & triple checking they will be there at the correct time & always clued us in if there was any clarification needed. It was important to us to have a relaxed & enjoyable time at our wedding, as I’m sure most people hope for. Though I’ve yet to see that happen for others, as the day of is usually spent with family & the bride & groom running around setting up & making sure all is where it should be. The morning of our wedding I got a visit from Carlee, where she gleefully checked in & collected our vendor thank yous to pass out later for us. Then she was back downstairs creating the most beautiful ceremony/reception space we ever could have imagined. We had a walkthrough the day before where she took notes about what we envisioned & if something was different the day of, it was only because she had thought of a better & more efficient way to do it. If we ever decide to renew our vows we will be calling you again Carlee, maybe then we can do a warm destination trip to Hawaii! We are so unbelievably grateful & really truly owe our beautiful wedding day to you & everyone else who helped put it on! Thank you!
Amazing, amazing, amazing.

I was planning our wedding via distance in only 3 months! Crazy, I know. But with Carlee's help our big day was not only a success, but an almost stress free day. She helped from everything from setting me up with great vendors, coordinating delivery/show up times, to confirming contracts and changes. The day of she helped organize the wedding party, bring me much needed beverages, my change of shoes, and all around took so much stress off my shoulders!
Thank you for this fantastic review Nicola - much appreciated! It was truly an honour working with you to bring your Whistler winter wedding to life. Thank you for inviting me to be a part of it all. I wish you and Alexander all the best!

We were so incredibly lucky to have Carlee as our wedding coordinator! From the beginning she was extremely helpful. It didn't matter how many questions I emailed her or suggestions I asked for, almost immediately Carlee would respond and help me through any issue I encountered. As the wedding approached, she went out of her way to last second meet us at the venue and help us plan out and walk through the whole day. She set all of our minds at ease with her calm demeanor and her wide breadth of knowledge. At our rehearsal, she corralled our large crew, worked us through the rehearsal, as well as took all of my decorations, center pieces, wedding arch, etc so that she would do all set up for us. To say that she helped keep me sane would be a complete understatement. Because of Carlee I went into my wedding day with a huge smile on my face and the knowledge that we were going to have an amazing time. The wedding was flawless. Every detail that I had panicked about for months she nailed perfectly. Even in my tipsyness I made a random request to keep wine corks from the wedding, and wouldn't you know it after our wedding Carlee had kept a huge bag of them for me. We are so extremely grateful for all she did for us at our wedding and would ABSOLUTELY recommended her to any and all of my friends. If you have Carlee you're as lucky a bride as I was.
Thank you so very much Anna! It was an absolutely pleasure and honour to help bring your special - and super fun - day to life!
All the best and big hugs,

Carlee was so wonderful to work with! Right from our first meeting, I knew that she was the perfect fit for us. She is friendly and professional, super organized and she is truly caring and enthusiastic about what she does. She was always available to discuss questions, concerns, and to bounce ideas off. Wedding planning can feel overwhelming and confusing at times but Carlee was always there to ease these worries and clarify anything that was uncertain. She seamlessly executed our vision of the day and allowed for us to take in every moment!
Thank you so very much for this wonderful review Chelsea! It was fun and an honor to get to know you and work with you in the lead up to your wedding day. Thanks for including the photo of the 3 of us...awesome!
All the best and big hugs,
Claire Mcdonald, Married on 01/09/2017
Carlee was great, she took care of everything the day-of and allowed us to enjoy our wedding. She handled all the behind the scenes organization, from the caterers to the florist, music and last minute decor set up. Carlee was very organized and was willing to go the extra effort to make sure everything was perfect. She has a great personality and is very easy to work with, listens to everything you want and may need, and has great advice and recommendations for the perfect wedding. We would highly recommend Carlee as a wedding coordinator, although we wished she stayed and danced with us a bit more!
Thank you so very much for this fantastic review Claire! I really enjoyed working with you and getting to know you and Liam in the lead-up to and on the big day. What a fun wedding! Thanks for including the photos of the 3 of us...awesome! :)
I wish you love and all the best!!

We were incredibly lucky to have Carlee as our "Day Of Coordinator" for our Whistler wedding - she is so fabulous! She goes above and beyond the one day and was there with us every step of the way. We chatted when we first booked the venue and it was a quick and easy connection. Carlee welcomed all emails throughout the planning process, and was timely and thorough with her responses. She met us for a venue walk-through and had so much to contribute to the meeting with both the facility and decor coordinators. She anticipated all of our needs and questions that might need answering, and was able to answer them all. We hired her for additional time to do a run-through of our rehearsal. Being a teacher, I so appreciated her organization and ability to lead a large group of excited wedding party participants with such calm and finesse. Carlee arrived on site first thing the day of the wedding and worked her magic with all the vendors - she was on top of everything! She checked in on us throughout the day. It was fun to hear how things were coming together and to feel her enthusiasm. Everything ran so smoothly thanks to Carlee's attention to detail and wedding coordination superpowers. So many people remarked on our incredible wedding planner - how she seemed to be everywhere, yet invisible at the same time. The day surpassed our expectations - and so did Carlee. Thank you so much Carlee for everything! Lori and Mike
Thank you so very much for this amazing review! It was an absolute pleasure helping to bring your special day to life...what a gorgeous day and night! Oh and thank you again for being so organized and on top of everything! All the best to you both!

We are so incredibly grateful that we connected with Carlee and she said yes to being our wedding planner! Having Carlee there from beginning to end truly made the experience so much easier and my husband and I much happier during the planning process and throughout the chaotic wedding weekend. She totally managed the entire wedding day and rehearsal with grace and style - so that we didn’t even notice she was there but I knew that if I needed her she would take over so I wouldn’t even think twice about it.
I was quite skeptical at first to have a wedding planner as I saw that as a cost cutting area. BUT, there is NO way that our wedding would have gone as smoothly as it did without Carlee there. As a bride, I was able to just fully enjoy the day and not worry about a single detail. She’s a wonderful person that is easy and fun to work with, she knows her industry and the local community very well which was extremely helpful for finding vendors, as well as she is professional, reliable and hardworking. What more could you ask for?
Thank you Carlee for making our day amazing! We couldn’t have done it without you!
Thank you very much Mari for your kind words! It was so much fun getting to know you and Anders in the lead up to your big day. It was a pleasure working with you...thank you for being so organized...and I wish you both nothing but love and all the best! Cheers!!

The thought of planning a destination wedding from half-way across the globe was a daunting project… until we met Carlee! From our initial skype meeting with her, until the very last minute of our wedding weekend… she was an absolute JOY to work with. Carlee was our full-service wedding planner, and we brought her onboard 10 months prior to the big day. She made our long-distance relationship extremely manageable by catering to our timezone, and hand-holding us throughout each planning stage. Not only is she an industry expert with years of project management experience, she is the most warm, genuine, and vibrant person! She is extremely organised, detail-oriented, dedicated, and diligent… all of the qualities one wishes in an ideal wedding planner. Rather than a working-relationship, we felt as though we had a friend that we could count on, to ensure that our wedding was seamless, as well as aligned to our vision and values. Given that the majority of our guests were coming from Japan with very high expectations around service, she didn’t have an easy task… but the end result was a magical, MAGICAL wedding weekend! All of our guests complimented on how stunning and enjoyable our wedding was, and how lovely Carlee was in making it happen! We will forever be grateful to Carlee for making our dream wedding a reality — thank you so much for your hard work and dedication, Carlee! She is THE ideal wedding planner for brides-to-be!
Honto ni arigatougozaimasu Miya & Mike! It was my honour to work with you both in the planning of your wedding and I am so happy that it was a magical day to remember!
Thank you again for inviting me to be a part of it all!

Carlee is amazing! She organizes, keeps track of time, and makes sure everything is running smoothly. She made our dream wedding come to life and made sure all the little touches and visions we wanted work our perfectly. She is definitely worth every penny and more!

We went into the planning of our wedding thinking that we would not hire a day of coordinator. Around 6 weeks out from our wedding day when we began to realize all the pieces that would need to fall into place to ensure that our big day ran smoothly.
After our first phone call with Carlee we knew that we had made a great decision. Carlee asked great questions and gained a strong understanding of what was important to us. She understood what we wanted our venue to look like and also the experience that we wanted for our guests. After phone calls, emails and meetings, Carlee met with us one last time before the wedding. We visited the venue together and with all of our decisions finalized, she went through every detail to ensure that we were comfortable and in case we had any last minute questions. Thanks to Carlee, we did not just have a great wedding day but also the days leading up to the wedding. We were able to enjoy the time with our family and friends who had come from all over the world to celebrate with us. We cannot express how happy we are that Carlee was part of our wedding.
