    Jessy and Laurence are INCREDIBLE.

    I wish I could give more stars!!

    Jessy and Laurence are INCREDIBLE. We worked with them to plan our wedding and this review wont come close to doing justice to how amazing they are.

    From the moment we started working together I knew we were in good hands. They worked with our vendors, gave amazing advice and made the day of the wedding so calm and smooth.

    They have this amazing ability to somehow make us feel like our event was unique and special, but also giving us confidence that they've seen it all before and nothing could phase them.

    If you're considering booking Jessy and Laurence for your event, I cannot recommend them enough, it will be the single best thing you can do to make your event amazing.

    Highly Recommend Stori Events!!

    My wife and I hired Stori for “month of coordination” for our wedding, and it was honestly the best decision. We had a general idea of what we wanted, but needed help putting it all together. From our very first meeting with Jessy and Laurence, we could tell they had a lot of experience planning all types of weddings. They brought up things we would have never even thought of, and we knew we could trust them with handling all the details to ensure our dream wedding came true.

    Then the coronavirus came and shut everything down. We decided to postpone our wedding by a year because we thought that should be enough time for things to return to normal. Boy, were we wrong… LOL. Anyways, Jessy and Laurence were amazing throughout the experience. They kept checking in on us every month. Making sure we were doing well, staying on top of our monthly to do check list and answering any questions/concerns we had around the ever-changing pandemic guidelines. I can’t imagine how difficult it must have been for them as well.

    It’s the month of the wedding, and it was amazing to see all our planning come together in the run of show they prepare. This is the most detailed document I have ever seen! The entire day planned out from start to finish, with everyone’s responsibilities clearly laid out. In the month of, Jessy and Laurence also take over full communication with all our vendors. Making sure any last-minute details are taken care of and that everyone is on the same page.

    We finally made it to the big day, and we couldn’t have felt more at ease knowing Jessy and Laurence have every detail taken care of. We were able to fully enjoy our special day, with all our closest friends and family, stress free. We just showed up and everything went as planned! We can’t image this day without the help of our friends Jessy and Laurence from Stori Events! We are forever grateful to them and would 100% recommend them to anyone planning a wedding or event!

    STORI Events's reply:

    Ann Rose and Tim, we appreciate you and miss you both! Your wedding was so very special and we were honoured that we got to help bring your vision to life. Thank you for your kind words and continuing support. Can't wait for the next big event! Sending virtual hugs.

    They are fantastic!

    The STORI girls are fantastic. They are equipped to give you all the tools needed to plan your big day. They are kind, thoughtful, and patient; all the qualities we were hoping to find in wedding planners! In the end there were some weather complications, but STORI handled every challenging moment with confidence, which helped everyone stay cool, calm and collected throughout the day. We would highly suggest this team, they made everything easier and a pleasure to plan.

    STORI Events's reply:

    Stori Events

    I was living in Asia at the time that I was planning to have our wedding destination in Canada. I have never been to Canada (I know it’s crazy) that’s why I think of our wedding as “wedding impossible”. Thankfully, I found Stori events at the wedding wire.

    It’s crazy how the team managed to make everything work with the little span of time for planning (less than a month!), how they managed to communicate through e-mail without any delay nor miscommunications despite the 12-hour time difference, and how they were very flexible with our cancellation/change of wedding date.

    They provided me with every option, made sure every little detail is what I wanted. They are indeed the dream team of every bride could wish for!

    I can’t put into words how thankful I am that they made my dream wedding come true.

    If I had to re-do our wedding all over again, I will still choose Jessy and Laurence as my wedding planners! :)

    Dream Team!

    The absolute best! Words cannot do justice to our incredible experience with Jesse and Laurence (Stori Events dream team). My husband and I requested their month-of-coordination services, but we received so much more. From day one, they blew us away with their monthly check-ins, organizational magic, and attention to detail. Leading up to the big day, they did a remarkable job of taking the lead on vendor communication and coordination, while still looping us in to the important and personal decisions. On our wedding day, we were able to be relaxed and "in the moment", as Jesse and Lo worked their magic behind the scenes, ensuring every detail was perfect. Not only are they incredibly gifted at their jobs, they are simply wonderful people who were welcomed guests at our wedding! We continue to marvel that they were the best additions to our team. Thank you so much for everything!

    You are without a doubt, the most wonderful & kindest human beings in the world! Truly, on vous adore!

    Amazing experience!

    My now husband and I got married last month, and we have said multiple times that the best money we spent on the wedding was Laurence and Jessy at Stori Events. Although we hired them for ‘month of coordination,’ Laurence and Jessy were in touch and available during the whole planning process and were invaluable when it came to answering our many questions, anticipating possible pandemic stressors and putting our minds at ease. On the big day it poured rain, and we’ve never seen two people jump into action faster while remaining so attentive and composed. They made sure to include us in the big decisions while protecting us from the inconsequential stressors, which allowed us to relax and enjoy ourselves despite the chaos around us. We always knew we were in good hands with them and the wedding day really proved that they are able to respond to whatever is thrown at them. Laurence and Jessy are approachable, knowledgeable, super organized and above all, hustlers! If you pick them, which we highly recommend you do, you won’t regret it.

    STORI Events's reply:

    Thank you so much for your sweet words Stephanie! Getting to know you and Robert was one of the best highlights of the year. You are both so lovely and we adore you. We are so looking forward to keeping in touch for years to come as your life together progresses! XOXO

    These ladies are worth it

    Jessy & Laurence are amazing human beings! I had reached out to a few wedding planners and as soon as I got on a call with them, I knew they were "the ones". I could not imagine planning a wedding without them.
    We were planning a wedding outside of Montreal (6 hours away) which made it a bit difficult to find vendors, however they NEVER gave up on possibilities. They are go-getters and they make sure that your dream wedding is achievable! They communicate regularly, clearly and they have amazing taste.

    Due to health & covid-19 reasons, we made a tough decision to cancel our wedding. They were extremely supportive and understanding. They immediately took care of communicating the cancellation to all of our vendors which was definitely very helpful.

    Honestly, you will not be disappointed.

    STORI Events's reply:

    In the face of the shutdowns, social-distancing requirements, and personal challenges you have been incredibly strong, staunch and quietly fierce throughout this heartbreaking period!

    You are a true inspiration to us, and we are so appreciative of your continuous love and support.

    We look forward to sharing this most memorable day with you and your loved ones.

    Gros Bisous!

    The best decision we made related to our wedding was hiring Stori

    We can't say enough great things about Jessy and Laurence. They helped us make it through a very stressful period after many changes that had to take place due to the pandemic. We are super happy with the final result.

    During the planning stage, Jessy and Laurence provided great suggestions around vendors. When one of the vendors we hired on our own, fell through, the next day Jessy already had 10 recommendations lined up and ready to take a call. I was so impressed with the quickness in their responses and ability to just turn it around. I don't know how they have time to manage all that they do.

    Leading up to the event, they created a super thorough ROS and were flexible in making adjustments as things changed. Everyone commented on how detailed it was. They also did proper check ins with our vendors and that helped everything go smoothly on the actual day.

    On the actual event day is really when they shined, stick handling everything related to our venue and vendors. All in all, if you need wedding planners, Stori is amazing at what they do. We had another planner prior and it was a clear difference how much better Jessy and Laurence are...even though the other one was highly rated as well. I have very high expectations and Stori was able to meet it.

    STORI Events's reply:

    Thank you, Teresa and Tim, for such a thoughtful review! It was an absolute delight working with you both and seeing your vision come to life on one of the most beautiful days, was incredible. Thank you for choosing to work with us! Being part of your wedding was truly an honour. We can't wait to hear of all of the amazing things you do together! Much love, Stori Team. xo

    They are TRULY wonderful!

    We miss these incredible ladies dearly!! Jessy and Laurence were our month of/day of coordinators but they went above and beyond to ensure our planning was going smoothly. They were a huge support during this season in our life especially nearing the big day. From beginning to end they did their job thoroughly helping us with any little queries we might have had and always being there for us. Even in the chaos of our wedding time, they were so very professional and understanding, and extremely organized which was perfect for keeping us in check.
    If you want to go into your wedding season without having to worry about how you’re going to get all the little details come together we highly HIGHLY recommend you work with this dream team. They make everything run seamlessly, and even calculate room for error in case anything does go wrong ;) Their attention to detail is beyond anything we’ve ever seen - they really want to make your big day and what you are envisioning COME TO LIFE. ♡♡♡ - L+M
