Exceptional Wedding Planners

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Stori Events as our month-of wedding coordinators for our special day in September, and we couldn't be more thrilled with the outstanding service they provided. Choosing Stori Events was, without a doubt, one of the best decisions we made throughout our wedding planning journey.

Right from our very first meeting, Jessy and Laurence showcased their professionalism, kindness, and genuine care for making our wedding day truly special. Little did we know that their expertise would far surpass our wildest dreams, creating an unforgettable experience for us and our guests.

The lead-up to the wedding day was seamlessly orchestrated, and truly made easy by Stori’s monthly checkin emails and helpful communications starting immediately upon booking with them. In the month leading up to our wedding, Stori Events took over coordination of our wedding and handled everything with precision and grace, allowing us to relax and enjoy the moments leading up to our big day. On the actual wedding day, Jessy and Laurence worked tirelessly behind the scenes, ensuring that everything ran smoothly. Their calm and reassuring presence was invaluable, and we felt completely taken care of.

We want to express our heartfelt gratitude to Stori Events for going above and beyond to make our wedding day so magical. Jessy and Laurence are not only exceptional professionals, but they are also genuinely wonderful people who instantly felt like friends. We cannot thank them enough for their dedication, hard work, and for making our wedding day an absolute dream come true. Now that our wedding day has passed, we’re sad that we won’t be working with Jessy and Laurence on a daily basis but are so thrilled that we were able to recommend them to another family member for their May 2024 wedding.

If you're searching for wedding planners or month-of-coordinators who are not only skilled and professional but also caring and thoughtful, look no further than Stori Events. They truly exceeded our expectations, and we wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone looking to work with, what we fondly call, the “A-Team”. Thank you, Jessy and Laurence, for making our wedding day an unforgettable celebration of love!

Absolutely amazing!

Wow, Jessy and Laurence are incredible. They are true professionals and so, so good at what they do. I felt their support every step of the way in planning. They kept us on track with monthly checkins and asked questions for things we totally would have missed without them. As part of their day of package, leading up the wedding day they handled all vendor comms, which took so much work off our plate. They ran our rehearsal - my family and wedding party were SO impressed with how organized, efficient and clear they were. They focused on what mattered most and pointed out the little things that make a big difference. On the day of, they were always within reach (literally) whenever I needed them. They were on it immediately. Working with Stori is worth the investment in every way. Thank you for everything!

Exceptional planners

We hired Laurence and Jessy for their partial wedding planning as well as decor/design services. They absolutely blew us away with their level of detail and organization. Anything we could possibly think of, they already had it taken care of. Our family and venue all commented on how incredibly organized and professional our planners were. They helped us source talented vendors to work with and truly helped bring our wedding vision to life. Even though we hired them for month of coordination, they guided us through the entire process and were always responsive and helpful with all of our questions and requests. We can't thank them enough for making our special day truly magical. Thank you!

Best month-of coordinators!

Choosing Jessy and Laurence from Stori Events as our month-of coordinators for our backyard June wedding turned out to be the absolute best decision we made!

Given the complexity of planning a backyard wedding, we knew we needed support executing the schedule and vendors. Their execution was impeccable—day of, we never had to worry about a single thing! The setup for both the ceremony and reception was nothing short of stunning, surpassing all my expectations. Our entire schedule flowed seamlessly, and we even received compliments from our guests on the smoothness of the evening and timing of the speeches throughout the dinner.

Not only are Jessy and Laurence incredibly skilled at what they do, but their delightful personalities made them an absolute joy to work with.

I honestly cannot imagine our day without them. Without hesitation, I will be recommending Jessy and Laurence to every one I know who is getting married! A heartfelt thank you to both of you for making our wedding a truly unforgettable experience.

The Most Magical Team

As a couple living in NYC but decided to have the wedding in Canada, we knew we needed local wedding planners and we couldn’t have found more reliable, efficient, and incredible planners in Laurence and Jessy. We had a dream wedding in mind, and they made sure to execute it in the most seamless way possible. From acquiring and dealing with the vendors to designing and decorating the venue to organizing the most detailed run of show, their team are just the best in what they do.

As for the day of the wedding, we heard nothing but amazing and positive feedback from all the guests as everything went so smoothly. Shoutout to Laurence and Danielle for giving us a stress-free day. Trust me when I say that my sisters and close friends were surprised that I was so calm the day of (normally, I’m the first to overthink and freak out lol), but it’s because I gave my full trust and confidence to the team and I knew I had nothing to worry about with them by our side. My husband and I even joked that after the amazing experience we had at the wedding, we want to marry them ;) 1000% recommend the Stori Events team to anyone in a heartbeat -- Laurence, Jessy, Michelle, Danielle, THANK YOU THANK YOU! Ben and I cannot express how grateful we are for helping make our wedding day the most magical day of our lives!

Incredible Coordinators!

Laurence and Jessy did an incredible job helping me with my wedding. I hired them for month-of coordination. They worked out all the details and logistics. They were able to sort my timeline and ensured everything ran smoothly on the day of the event. Laurence was able to manage any concerns that happened during the event. When the makeup artist or photographer was not on time, she was able to call to see where they were. I also had brought charger plate rentals to the venue and she noticed I did not have enough of them. She called the charger plate rental company and was able to get them to deliver the additional plates before the reception began. She also was able to help bustle my dress when it was falling apart. She checked up on us during the event and was able to change the timeline when needed. Laurence had a very calming presence, this was helpful because it helped us get rid of any stress that we had. I recommend hiring this team. They were honestly the best vendors we had. We could have not done it on our own.

Couldn’t have asked for better planners ❤️❤️❤️

Thank you so much Jessy & Laurence for all the help as I planned our wedding the past 15 months!!! It was everything I hoped for and all we heard from the guests afterwards were positive things ❤️ everyone agreed that it was an amazing day and everything went without a hitch. It meant so much to me particularly as it was an added challenge to plan a wedding in a country I was very new to, so I’m deeply grateful that they were both around to help me navigate that. We availed of the month-of service but they were very available and accommodating from the moment we signed with them over a year before the wedding day itself. Even during our rehearsal the guests were so impressed by them and because of that I knew everything would be perfect on the day-of 💕

Thank you again girls!! Highly recommend this power duo!!!

Beyond my wildest dreams

Jessy and Laurence are the ideal wedding planners. The biggest testament to their meticulous approach is the fact that everything went according to plan on our wedding day, which was the day that Rogers was down across the country and no one was reachable by phone.

I debated for a while whether to chose the month of coordination or their full wedding planning package and I'm so glad that I chose the latter. Having the ladies of STORI events with me from day one, with their level of taste and expertise, helped me translate my fragmented ideas into a fully developed and refined vision. It was such a genuine joy to work with them. They took all the stress out of the planning and were incredibly patient as I explored different ideas.

On they day of the wedding, they were on top of absolutely everything and allowed my husband and I to fully enjoy ourselves and make everlasting memories on our special day.

Thank you so much ladies for all that you did. You were both an integral part of that day and I'm super grateful to you both!

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.

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.
