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!Sent on 24/09/2017

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!Sent on 21/02/2017

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.

Carlee was the wedding coordinator we never knew we needed. I was required by my wedding venue to bring on a planner and so reluctantly I began a search for a day-of coordinator. However, from the get go, I got the impression that Carlee was the missing piece for our wedding. She was hyper-organized and eager to help me as much or as little as needed. A number of times throughout the wedding process I was feeling incredibly lost and overwhelmed with planning, however this was always resolved by a phone call to Carlee. She made herself available for a number of these phone conversations and was always quick to respond to a question via email.Sent on 19/12/2016
Fast forward to the day of the wedding, I saw Carlee's car pull in, and I instantly felt relaxed. Besides checking in with me in the morning, saw her only a few times for the rest of the day, however I had complete faith that she was doing everything as we had discussed. Periodically I would see her as she would come and check in, make sure we were on schedule, or touch base about how things were going. However her organization and orchestration of the day made it so that I did not have to think about any logistics, even once. Some guests who came to the wedding were shocked when I told them I had a wedding coordinator, and I truly believe that is because Carlee was so immersed, and made everything so effortless and seamless, that her help was almost unnoticed.
Throughout the blur of the day, I would occasionally notice that something would have changed, wedding decorations in previous spaces had been repurposed, a table would shift, or a certain feature would have been adapted in order to suit the new portion of the evening. These adjustments were always perfect and timely, and yet once again I never actually saw Carlee do them! It was like she was reading my mind, but with things I hadn't even thought of!
At some point towards the end of the night Carlee came in and checked in with me to say that she had coordinated the end of the evening with the staff, had organized it so that I would not need to worry about tear down, and furthermore had ensured that we would have some decorations remaining/organized for the following day's brunch. During this conversation with her, I realized with simultaneous horror and relief that in all of my planning at no point did I think about tear-down or packing up after the event, but Carlee once again had solved a problem that I didn't even know needed solving. The next day we were able to just remove the final pieces that had been left behind for the brunch, load the boxes into our cars, and drive away. It was all so seamless and stress-free.
I would recommend Carlee to absolutely anyone, organized or less-so (like me). At no point in planning or on the day of did I feel like I was without support. I owe so much of my sanity and a lot of the weddings success to her thoughtful and incredibly proactive attention to detail. If you need a day-of-coordinator or planner she is your woman! Even though my guests hardly noticed, I noticed her by the fact that I went through the whole day completely blissful, just enjoying the efforts of months of planning culminating in what was the best day of my life.
Pocketful Productions's reply:Thank you very much for your kind words Harriet! It was my absolute pleasure helping you with your wedding in the lead up to and on the big day. You were so organized and dialed and it was a beautiful wedding.

If you are looking for someone to help you achieve your perfect day, then hire Carlee! From the very first phone call she was a calming force for me, a very high-strung bride. She was so professional, attentive and knowledgeable that I knew our day was in good hands.Sent on 11/06/2016
I had a very elaborate decor scheme and lots of little details, which she was able to pull off perfectly, along with wrangling a giant wedding party which included 9 kids!
My new husband and I are so grateful to Carlee, our day was everything we wanted.
Pocketful Productions's reply:Thank you so very much Dana! It was an honour to be a part of your special day. I loved bringing your vision to life.

I am so incredibly thankful that Carlee was part of our wedding team. I could not have asked for a better person to help me carry out my wedding vision. Carlee took over all planning and coordination 4 weeks prior to our wedding, which not only made our big day absolutely perfect, but also made the weeks leading up to it incredibly calm and enjoyable. She is professional, patient, caring, warm, and an all-around lovely person. She made sure everything was set up perfectly down to the last detail and took care of all of our guests needs as if they were her own family. I cannot thank Carlee enough and would without a doubt recommend her to any bride.
Pocketful Productions's reply:Wow, thank you very much Brittany! It was so lovely to meet you and to work with you and Dean. It was a beautiful wedding and it was truly an honor to be a part of it.

I cannot recommend Carlee enough, she is fantastic at her job, she put me at ease through the whole planning process. Day-of, I knew I could trust her completely, there was not a single (noticeable) snag in the whole day. I could not have done this without Carlee.Sent on 14/07/2016
Pocketful Productions's reply:Thank you very much Cassy! It was an absolute pleasure getting to know you and working with you in the lead up to your big day. I'm glad you were happy with the end results - it was beautiful! Thank you again!

Carlee was fantastic. We hired her for full service wedding planning. We live out of town and she was able to coordinate an amazing day for us. We had monthly FaceTime meetings. She allowed us to enjoy the wedding planning process by keeping us on track. She is extremely organized, hard working, thorough. She has great contacts in the Whistler area which allowed for easy hiring of vendors etc. On the day she had everything move flawlessly. Absolutely incredible!!! Definitely recommend her highly.Sent on 20/03/2016
Pocketful Productions's reply:Thank you very much Sarah! I appreciate your kind words. It was an honour working with both you on your wedding. Wishing you all the best!

Carlee was incredible from the very beginning. I hired Carlee over the phone and actually never met her in person until the day of the wedding. Carlee is kind, patient and an excellent listener. She is very professional and takes her time to completely understand your vision and ensures its delivery. On the day of the wedding, Carlee was a calm presence, she was very organized and a task master. She took care of all the details and there is no job above or beneath her. I would highly recommend Carlee and was very impressed with her professionalism, attention to detail, patience and presence.Sent on 06/09/2015
