Carlee was amazing. If you don’t feel like reading the whole review, just know that our wedding would have been cancelled without her. She was worth every dollar and then some!Sent on 21/09/2020
Our wedding story was like many others for 2020 where we had to plan, re-plan, and then plan some more due to the changing environment of safety and restrictions. Carlee helped us through everything with a calmness only a true professional could bring to the table. She’s kind, attentive, thorough, and realistic.
When our original wedding venue canceled four weeks out, she put us in touch with Brew Creek and within 48 hours we were back on track. Without her connections and quick thinking, we would have cancelled.
Instead, we had a beautiful wedding with people that felt safe, intimate, and really special. She was incredible with organizing all aspects of the event and took so much stress away from us during the day. The decor was beautifully executed, logistics felt seamless and she was tactful with managing the group. If you’re thinking about a big wedding in the future or a Covid style smaller wedding....work with Carlee.
Pocketful Productions's reply:Oh my goodness Lauren...thank you so very much for these kind words. You seriously brought a tear to my eye. I'm just so glad you were able to get married this year surrounded by friends and family members in a beautiful setting. It truly was my honour to work with you both and help bring your special day to life. Thank you again and take care, Carlee

Carlee was amazing!
I cannot recommend Carlee enough - she was absolutely amazing throughout the whole process and most especially on our wedding day. Getting married in the middle of winter in Whistler may seem daunting for any number of reasons, but Carlee made it easy and wonderful, meeting with us multiple times, providing much needed advice, support, and making our day as beautiful and memorable as we could possibly wish! She (and her team) were perfect!Sent on 12/09/2020

Made our day magical!
This review of Pocketful Productions is long overdue! We hired Carlee for our February 2020 Whistler destination wedding. When we were interviewing planners in July 2018, we were torn between her and another one and Carlee was a very close second choice. We always regretted our decision and after a disaster experience with the planner we chose - she quit on us 3 months before our big day - we reached out to Carlee to see if she was still available.Sent on 27/11/2020
We were very happy and excited that she was still available to help us and she jumped in to help us with the mess of disorganization from our previous planner. She not only eased our minds, but helped us renegotiate contracts with vendors that our previous planner set up after discovering we were being overcharged. Working with Carlee was such a breath of fresh air - she was always so responsive, positive, detail oriented, and organized. My one "must have" was a giant disco ball for our reception and when our previous planner would not share the details of the vendor she sourced for our disco ball, Carlee found a new one that was even bigger and then figured out how to hang it in our venue (no small task that's for sure). She is truly amazing - from every interaction with her, we could really tell that she was just as excited about our big day as we were - she loves what she does and genuinely cares about her couples! Our wedding day was absolutely perfect and magical, my husband and I enjoyed every minute of our day without a single hiccup or flower out of place. I know that this was all due to Carlee's efforts behind the scenes and we are so grateful that she agreed to work with us. Highly recommend Pocketful Productions - hire her so you won't regret it!
Pocketful Productions's reply:Thank you so very much for this amazing review Ginette! It was my pleasure working with you both and I'm just so glad you got your dream wedding in the end. I have to admit that giant disco ball in the Istken Hall looked amazing! Thank you again and all the best! Cheers, Carlee
Heather Mann · Married on 04/01/2020
Carlee came highly recommended by our venue which is why we decided to go with Pocketful Productions for our wedding day coordination. Carlee's experience with weddings shone through from our first meeting; she took detailed notes and knew which questions to ask of us. We felt assured that we were in good hands. On the big day, Carlee arrived early with her team. When it came to decor, we had not fully decided on what we wanted and gave Carlee and her team some liberty. They did a fabulous job in transforming our reception hall into a gorgeous celebration space! It was so lovely to have Carlee present throughout the day so we could relax into our day and let go of worrying about the logistics. Everything was set up as we wanted and Carlee was there at key moments, such as our grand entrance to the reception hall. We appreciated that Carlee connected on a personal level as well as being highly professional. We have no hesitations in recommending Pocketful Productions!Sent on 09/02/2020
Pocketful Productions's reply:Thank you so very much for this wonderful review Heather! It was such a pleasure working with you both in the lead up to and on your big day. I'm so glad you were able to relax and enjoy your wedding day. Thank you again! I wish you continued love and all the best. - Carlee

Carlee is amazing. From our first phone call Carlee was incredibly supportive, kind, and professional. She made us feel at ease and excited about our special day. We had numerous conversations over the phone, via email, and in person and she was always so dependable and encouraging. As the wedding got closer, Carlee was so great about checking in with us and helping us organize all of the details of the day. Carlee is so personable and thoughtful and her attention to detail is incredible. It was amazing to see all of our décor ideas come to life and everything was better than we ever could have imagined!! Carlee went above and beyond to add so many beautiful little touches to our day. We weren’t worried about anything on the day of because Carlee and her team had it all under control. Carlee is so passionate and it was evident that she genuinely enjoys what she does. She has such a positive, fun energy and it was so fun working with her. We can’t say enough good things about Carlee and Pocketful Productions. We’re incredibly happy to have had you there on our special day. It was the best decision ever. We can’t thank you enough Carlee!Sent on 11/09/2019

Amazing Wedding Planner!
Carlee was amazing to deal with from the beginning. I chose a venue up in Pemberton, BC at Big Sky Golf Course; however, I was living in Vancouver, BC. It was nice to know Carlee was already familiar with the venue as well as many of the vendors she had recommended. She was able to answer all of my questions in a timely manner (and trust me there was a lot), and calm my nerves when I was unsure about somethings. She also attended my walk through while making some suggestions and understanding my vision. The final weeks leading up to my wedding, Carlee took over and was able to ensure all of the vendors were in line and ready to go for the big day. This helped immensely as there is a lot of work that needs to be done in the final weeks leading up the big day. Her upbeat and positive personality helped to keep me calm the night before the wedding at our dinner rehearsal as well as on my wedding day. Carlee exceeding my expectations with the décor as well as ensuring we stuck to the timeline throughout the day. The day honestly wouldn’t have gone as smoothly as it did if it hadn’t been for Carlee. Thank you so much Carlee, I honestly don’t know what I would have done without you!Sent on 21/08/2019

Amazing wedding planner
We were daunted at the prospect of planning a destination wedding with guests flying in from around the globe to be there, but as soon as we started working with Carlee we felt in control and at ease.Sent on 24/07/2019
We chose the "day of plus" package, which was the best decision we made in our entire wedding planning process. Carlee helped us think of details and things we would've totally missed otherwise, and expertly helped us consolidate all our vendors and personal touches to create a seamless day. She took all the stress out of the lead up to the wedding, which allowed us to properly enjoy time with guests who were in town the days prior to the big day.
Carlee and her team set everything up for us so perfectly, and without her we wouldn't have been able to optimize use of our flowers and other decor by re-purposing them throughout the day.
The weather forecast for our wedding (which we intended to be primarily outdoors) was for rain, but Carlee handled this perfectly by making alterations to our set up (which rocked!) and timing our ceremony down to the minute against the weather forecast to allow us to have it outside as we had hoped. An absolute miracle worker.

An absolute dream to work with!
Carlee is wonderful and was an absolute life saver for our wedding day! She made the whole process very smooth and covered details I wouldn't have thought of myself or jobs that were too tricky for me to handle. Being outside the Pemberton area, Carlee made organizing the local vendors and rentals a lot easier. During the day she was so kind and helpful, working so hard behind the scenes to make sure our day was perfect. During the day I didn't have to worry about a single detail and was able to relax and enjoy the day. We cannot thank her enough and can't imagine how we would have pulled off the event without her! She is also just genuinely a lovely person who really does care about her couples experiencing their dream day!Sent on 26/07/2019
Pocketful Productions's reply:Thank you so very much for these kind words Sophie!! It was a pleasure working with you and getting to know you during the wedding planning process. Thank you for inviting me to be a part of it! I wish you continued love and all the best!! Hugs, Carlee

One of our best wedding planning decisions and investments!
When we were planning our "destination" wedding in Pemberton, one of my concerns as mother of the bride was pulling all the moving pieces together. Someone recommended finding a day of coordinator. I found Carlee and Pocketful Productions and after reading some reviews, I felt she was the best fit for our wedding and made contact. We decided on the Day of Plus package, which allows you to hand off everything a couple of weeks in advance. Having someone local like Carlee who is familiar with the venue and other vendors was absolutely essential for our peace of mind and enjoyment of the process. She followed up with all of them prior to the wedding day to make sure everything was in order. She and the officiant ran the rehearsal with efficiency and professionalism. As I was going through decor items and talking about the next day, she was super reassuring that she had everything under control and in no way should I have to think about any of the details - and she was right! On the day, she ensured everything was set up like we planned and eased the transition from the ceremony, to cocktail hour to the evening dinner. Once the tables were broken down to the party portion, she packed up all our decor items and had them ready to go for us to pick up the next day. When my husband and I flopped into bed at the end of the day, he remarked, "How would we have done today without Carlee?" I think that statement covers it all. The day was absolutely perfect.Sent on 27/07/2019
