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!Sent on 03/05/2018
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.Sent on 23/09/2017

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!Sent on 02/08/2017

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!Sent on 07/05/2018

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.Sent on 25/05/2017
