    Why are you still reading this? Seriously, just hire them!

    We had Jordan for their two month takeover package and I honestly don't know what I would have done without her. If I could do it all over again I probably would have saved myself the trouble and just book them for the full wedding planning service they offer. Learning how to do this all on your own and the amount of time you spend on this is no joke people! You do not realize these things until after your wedding. Jordan is so sweet and just full of positive energy that I left our meetings feeling so stress free.. even though I knew there was still a lot of work on my end that needed to be done! If anything went wrong the day of, I have no knowledge of it because she took care of everything. We loved the personalized napkins that she surprised us with during our rehearsal. We started overthinking everything the few weeks leading up to the wedding and she was able to put up with us and our numerous emails. Everything turned out perfect and then some. Keep doing what you do because you're great at it!

    Highly Recommend Smitten Events!

    I worked with Smitten Events to plan my wedding and I can say with absolute certainty that our wedding would not have turned out as wonderful as it did without the help of Devon and her team. Devon was always incredibly professional and was always available to discuss questions or even for moral support along the way!

    We engaged Smitten for their partial planning package, which included consultations, site visits and full day-of coordination which included everything from the 2 months leading up to the day - communicating with vendors, creating a detailed timeline, coaching our MC's and much more! The most value was by far their amazing vendor referrals. I went into our planning sessions with a list of moderately researched vendors and ideas , and came out with lists and key contacts and personal referrals to Vancouver's top wedding vendors. These recommendations are without a doubt what made our wedding so fantastic. Everything from DJ, to cake, to floral, Smitten understood what we wanted and had the right connections for us.

    I ended up adding on "a la carte" floral and decor vendor management services, and Devon accompanied me to our design meetings and we had an absolute blast turning our vision into real life!

    After consulting with various planners, I found Smitten not only incredibly professional with lots of industry knowledge, they were humble and it was clear they cared a lot about their clients and the work they did. I loved that they did not charge me for every text or phone call and were available when I had a wedding crises or two on my hands. This was important to me, as weddings are so personal and I didn't want it to feel like a business transaction! Their passion for their work so obvious and made working together so much fun.

    We loved Francesca. She is a wedding superhero. She was incredibly helpful during the three month take over. I am a bit high strung (so is my mom) and brought my anxiety and stress way down (and my mom's too). During the wedding I did not have to worry about a thing. The three month take over is the way to go and Francesca is your lady! My Mom keeps telling all her friends how amazing Francesca was and I could not agree more. Thank you Smitten and Francesca for making my wedding such a special day.

    I cannot recommend Smitten Events highly enough. I had Devon’s help to plan my wedding (partial planning), and Jordan helped out on the weekend as well. It was a really tricky wedding, spanning a whole weekend at a children’s summer camp that doesn’t normally do weddings, so we were on our own to do everything – and they helped pull it all off, so much better than I could have ever imagined. I can’t imagine how it would have been without their help! They even stayed overnight and slept in one of the rustic children’s cabins (as it was the only accommodations available) without hesitation! I am so grateful to those two women, I had the most amazing, carefree day, everything was more beautiful than I could have hoped for, and it is all because of them!

    Best decision we ever made!

    We chose Smitten Events to help plan our June 2017 wedding at UBC Botanical Gardens. My wife and I were so happy to have hired Robyn and it was one of the best decisions of our wedding planning experience. Robyn was patient, helpful, understanding and most of all knowledgable when it came to all the questions that we had. Robyn knew what to remind us of and when, brought up ideas that we had not thought of and she had the best vendor recommendations to fit our budget and our personalities. We also appreciated Robyn's sense of humour and relaxed demeanour on the day of our wedding. Robyn and her team had everything under control and ready for us when we arrived at the venue. We had someone that knew both of us, what our vision was and Robyn nailed it perfectly. We would both recommend Robyn to any of our friends and family planning an event and we are so glad to have had Robyn be a part of our wedding. Thanks again!

    Robyn was the planner for our wedding last month, and we honestly can't imagine getting through the process without her by our side. We did the partial planning package, including day-of coordination, and it was by far the best investment we made for the wedding. My husband and I both work full time, so the idea of planning a wedding by ourselves was completely daunting. Even during our first meeting with Robyn, she was genuinely excited to be a part of our day. From then on, she was there to make sure we were on schedule with everything we said we were going to do, eased our worries and anxieties, and got us the best vendor team we could have ever hoped to have! Just having Robyn's guidance and wisdom on catering alone was worth it! We were able to enjoy our wedding day in full, without having to worry about any snags during the day. Even the smallest things, such as Robyn bringing all of the bouquets to the hotel for myself and the bridesmaids made the day so much more enjoyable! The ceremony and reception at Heritage Hall were everything we hoped it would be and more. If you want to truly be present on your wedding day, bring on the ladies at Smitten Events. I assure you that it's the best decision you'll make.

    Could not have done it without Francesca

    We hired Francesca at Smitten to help with our wedding planning. Hands down, it was the best money we spent. We planned our Galiano Island wedding remotely from Toronto so having Francesca locally made the process sooo much easier. She did such a great job of translating our vision for the perfect day into reality. Everything from the decor, to the set up of the ceremony, to the overall flow of events and vibe, was perfect. Her suggestions for a live musician, graphic designer, and most of the decor were supremely helpful and not something we would have come up with ourselves. We were super busy with a renovation and new baby during the lead up, so having Francesca keep us on track and manage the details was incredibly valuable. Looking back, we are so happy with how everything went. 100000000% recommended!!

    The Right Person

    If you are having a wedding, you should definitely use Smitten Events and if you are having a wedding in "The Pipe Shop" then without a doubt, you need Smitten Events!!! I had planned for my wedding to happen just after the busiest time in my workplace and as much as I didn't want to admit it, I really needed help. Smitten Events not only provided this support but our wedding planner, Devon Dunn, went absolutely above and beyond.

    Everything that I didn't think about logistically, Devon noticed it right away and brought it to my attention. She organized everything so fantastically amongst the vendors, timing and event that my guests are still telling me how it was "the best wedding [they'd] ever been to" or how they were in absolute "awe in how perfect everything was."

    Not only did she do an incredible job planning the wedding, Devon is also one of the most genuine human beings I've ever met. Her kindness and understanding nature made for the perfect person to communicate and work with - vendors included. I literally cried at the end of the night because she helped my husband and I achieve our dream wedding and I honestly am going to miss her because she is an amazing, selfless and thoughtful person. Aside from my husband, it is the first time that I knew right away that I had chosen the right person!

    Smitten full planning was the best decision

    We had Smitten do full planning and that was the best decision we made! Jordan is an exceptional and highly experienced planner. We felt that the wedding was a breeze because of Jordan. She is a great listener that understood what was important for us. She gave us fantastic vendor recommendations so that we were able to achieve our vision. The team of vendors she assembled was extremely professional, experienced, and a joy to work with.

    What really struck me was the care Jordan took to ensure that we had the best day. At the start of the process, we were concerned about not being able satisfy some of the family wishes. Jordan was always very positive and committed to finding the best solution. She was also very open to unconventional ways of doing things and super supportive of us just being ourselves. She took a very collaborative approach so that we were able to craft the day that was truly customized.

    Professionalism aside, Jordan is a very kind person. This makes a world of difference. We knew that we could trust her with this major life event because she’s got our best interest in mind. We couldn’t have had a smoother and more relaxed day! Our wedding was exactly what we had hoped for and more. Highly recommend!
