More than my dream
We are a covid wedding couple. We had planned our wedding back in 2018 to be set in Dominican for July 22, 2020. Now, obviously that was a bust due to covid. Our plans changed several times and finally we came to the decision to do a small wedding here in Canada. We chose Elora Mill because:
1. It’s absolutely STUNNING! The venue alone is incredibly gorgeous, perfect for photos, so many places to take photos inside and outside. Their “basic decor package” is absolutely breath taking!
2. The price was right! They offered a perfect elopement package that fit our budget. We were able to have a ceremony, reception dinner, couple dance, father daughter dance, mother son dance, and free dinner for the couple along with our cake, a bouquet for the bride, boutonnière for the groom, and a live stream for those that would not be able to make it due to numbers being low. This package allowed us to have the wedding of our dreams, while still having our guests attend- and also following the covid guidelines.
3. Everything was made so clear. From day one of planning, we worked with Raylene. She sat down with us and had a perfect questionnaire that covered the entire wedding. She went through everything with us and made sure we understood what would take place. On the day of, we had the events manager, Tyson. I cannot bring to words how amazing this man is! He was everywhere at once while keeping himself calm and professional. I had no idea he even left my side because he was always there to help when I needed it and to tell me what was happening next. He treated us like a queen and king and brought so much security to our special day.
We had no idea how amazing it would be until the day of. Throughout the process of planning the wedding, we had come across many challenges as covid restrictions were becoming more and more tight. Raylene and her team kept in contact with us to keep us up to date and made arrangements to make sure that our day could continue as how we originally had planned it.
The team went out of their way to make sure our day didn’t get ruined by covid. Unfortunately, in the end, we were not able to do our reception dinner but the team allowed us to do everything else in our ceremony area that it didn’t feel like we missed a thing! Tyson made sure everything ran smoothly on the day of and I couldn’t have asked for a better event manager to be on our team the day of! He made sure I got to our “first look” on time. He made sure my memorial pendant got put on my flowers before giving them to me, he made sure my fiancé was there on time, he made sure of EVERY LITTLE DETAIL! He did more than even know because he just took all the stress off of me for the day and he did EVERYTHING! And no I did not pay extra for him. His service was incredibly appreciated and needed the day of! Things would not have run so smoothly had he not been there.
At the end of the night, because we didn’t have our dinner reception, Tyson showed us to our room (which was IMMACULATE) and brought us our meals for the night, starting with salad. He even set ambient music for us to enjoy while we had dinner. Always checking to make sure we were happy and had what we needed.
All in all, I would do it again and again if I could. We will be going back just to visit from now on! It was an incredible experience. I would not have known covid ruined a lot of our plans as the day was made perfect by the Elora Mill Team!Sent on 29/12/2020
Story Weddings & Events's reply:Hi Alana, this sounds like such a great wedding and experience! I would love to take the credit but I believe you posted this review to the wrong vendor. Congratulations on your marriage and all the best in the New Year!

Absolutely loved working with Hevin and her team!
We can't thank Hevin and her team enough for all their help on our big day. Our wedding was beyond perfect, and better than what either of us could ever imagine. Everything ran so smoothly, and honestly I can say I was completely stress free and had the happiest day of my life. We recognize all the hard work Hevin and her team had put in, and we really appreciate every small detail they put into making our day so absolutely beautiful and memorable! Thank you for allowing us to relax, sit back and enjoy our day, without having any worries!
We are so thankful for all the times Hevin and her team came to meet with us, for every single email and phone call that were promptly responded, and for checking into things that did not even cross our minds! We have crazy busy lives, and we really appreciated the fact that she did not mind us getting back to her, sometimes days or weeks late!
Hevin has a wonderful network, intuition, vendors and suppliers that made our planning a breeze. If you're looking for a true professional to make your wedding visions and dreams come to life, then Story Weddings is your team! We absolutely loved working with Hevin and her team, and would highly recommend her services to anybody looking for help planning any event!

Honestly, having Hevin and her team in my corner both before the wedding and on the day of was literally a dream come true. Planning is so overwhelming and there's so much minutia that keeping track of it all would have literally drove me crazy on the day of. Thankfully Hevin and her team took care of all of it. From suggesting vendors, to communicating the plan for vendors on the day of, to setting up and the room flip and then the breakdown. It was all so perfect and seamless and wonderful. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding planner. So grateful.Sent on 15/08/2016

A must hire team!
We used Story Weddings for partial planning and day-of coordination. They sourced affordable vendors that were exceptional. Process was easy and the team was always available for support or answer last minute questions. The day-of, Hevin and her team were fantastic; the day went off without any issues. Highly recommend this team!Sent on 21/08/2019
By far exceeded anything we imagined. They are a must hire for a memorable wedding that is stress free!

10/10 highly recommended
Story Wedding and Events (Hevin) and her team went above and beyond to ensure our wedding day was magical and seamless. She coordinated an amazing group of vendors, scheduled and attended our appointments, calmed us down when we were concerned about something, brought our wedding vision to life and was present at our wedding to ensure all the details and placement of decor was perfected. Hevin is the best wedding planner/coordinator and we would recommended her to ALL.Sent on 10/10/2018
