Thank you for the gift of Peace
This review was done about 4 months after our wedding - by the bride! :)Sent on 27/04/2018
I'm an event planner. Not a professional one, but I know how I wanted my wedding to be run. I knew that I wanted all my family members to enjoy the day, instead of running around my wedding trying to tie together loose ends for me. So we decided we needed a wedding planner!
I asked around my friend circle (I mean out of the hundreds of wedding planners on the internet, who would you choose?) and we were referred to Stephanie - Sweeetheart Events.
I had a couple of other referrals and I jumped on the phone with everyone, but there was something that I was connected to Stephanie about. She was so personable, and extremely proud of her business. We met for coffee at Parallel 49, and Stephanie ended up having a two hour meeting with us - just to get to know us! We ended up talking about our potential budget, and Stephanie was able to let us know exactly how much approximately she was going to cost , and where she would be able to help us with saving some cash (like in florals, rentals, etc). From Stephanie's assertiveness yet attention to the engaged couple, it was a indefinat, immediate, positively YES that we were excited to put our wedding's successful day in Stephanie's hands.
The process with Stephanie was a blast. From meeting her in her office in Vancouver, to exciting Pinterest emails back and forth, I could not have picked a more stress-free way to have enjoyed the entire wedding process. Stephanie probably ended up going to our venue at least three times - just to make sure everything would be perfect the day of. She met with our DJs, she met with our floral designers (which I didn't even end up meeting, nor picking the flowers - just because I trusted Stephanie so much! Time is $$!)
The wedding day came and went - in a flash! Of course there were complications and surprises - as all events come with - however Stephanie didn't even share with us ever all the backstage fumbles - simply because she's a PRO!!! To us, and to our guests, the wedding ceremony and reception was 101% seamless. And it was a day we will remember forever. Not just the aesthetics (even though Stephanie did freaking awesome), not just the flow of the events (even though... again Stephanie knocked it out of the park), but all I can remember is... the Peace. The day was full of joy, and laughter, and tears, and peace. I knew there was not a thing to be worried about because Stephanie had not let us down even once during the entire 9 month process. I had built so much trust in her, I knew that not only was she a great event planner, but she's a friend for life!
Thank you Stephanie - and the Sweetheart Team - for giving us such a special gift. I highly recommend all future brides to get a wedding planner. You do not want your mother-in-law worrying about forgetting the veil at the hotel 30 minutes away, nor the videos not working in the middle of the reception.
Much love and hugs to you Steph!

From the beginning, My husband and I knew what we wanted in regards to the direction of our wedding, however we knew we may need to hire an event planner to help us execute that dream wedding. This is when we met with Sweetheart Events and knew that they would be a perfect fit. After meeting with Shawna we saw how detailed oriented, creative, responsive and invested she was in making our perfect day come true. We also quickly realized that even though we had created a great vision for our wedding, we hadn't thought about how WE and our families wanted to FEEL on our wedding day. We wanted to embrace, enjoy, love, and relax on our wedding day! (or try to at least :) ) Sweetheart Events took care of all our coordination on the day of our wedding and was readily available to help when we needed a little bit of guidance or help along the way. Every little detail was taken care of, and as my husband stated after the wedding -- they were the BEST decisions we made in regards to the wedding, and still tells every fellow groom to be that hiring Sweetheart Events is a MUST when planing a wedding :)Sent on 12/12/2017

I hired Beth as a day of coordinator for my destination wedding in Squamish and I am so happy that I did! Before the wedding, she took the time to email back and forth with me for any wedding question that I had, set up a time to pick up our decor a few days before, and created a timeline with our vendors for the day of. She handled everything the day of the ceremony and worked through all of the speed bumps, all while keeping me calm and smiling. I loved working with her! I highly recommend her and Sweetheart Events to any bride looking for a great wedding coordinator.Sent on 05/09/2017

Shawna at Sweetheart Events went above and beyond to give us an amazing experience from start to finish! We were planning our wedding from New Zealand, and she was always a phone call away and never left us guessing. Her communication and professionalism was superb and her ability to understand what couples need to plan a wedding gave us have so much confidence, especially when we were planning our wedding from a distance. Shawna is an excellent listener and wonderful person to work with, she made us feel so relaxed and sure our day was going to be perfect, and it was! We would highly recommend Shawna and Sweetheart Events to organise your special day!Sent on 22/12/2017
