Canadian Destination Wedding!

Our wedding at Sea to Sky in Squamish, BC Canada was gorgeous and perfect; it was everything we could have dreamed of. It was not easy to plan and execute a destination wedding in a foreign country, I needed local boots on the ground! Sweetheart delivered, and their team always had my back. There were a few hiccups but what wedding doesn't have them? I had my experts from Sweetheart Events managing every detail perfectly. They were amazing at helping me design and execute our dream wedding, I could not have done it without them. We were exceptionally pleased. If I had to do it all over again, I would definitely choose Sweetheart Events again.

Sara went above and beyond!

We were blessed to have Sara plan our wedding day. Words can't do her justice.
Even though we only hired her for day of planning, she has been involved with us throughout the whole year. She and her team did a phenomenal job ensuring our day went so well and so smoothly, she made sure everything was perfect! She made sure we were doing well at everyone single moment! She went above and beyond her job duties, paying attention to the smallest details. She was immensely helpful and resourceful, solving all our problems. When it got too hot on the dance floor, she was quick to distribute fans to our guests. I didn't have to stress about anything because she was on top of her game. On top of that, she made sure we were having a great time, she had chocolate and bubbly and a sweet card for me in my bridal room, also a Scotch ready for my husband. She stayed with us an hour after our reception was finished to make sure we have a safe ride home.
I can go on an on describing the excellent service she has provided us with...
We definitely got way more than what we paid for!! We're forever grateful for having you in our Wedding Sara!

Fantastic!

Stephanie is amazing all around! I don't know how I would have gotten through my wedding planning and day without her. We hired her to be our DOC and she was worth every penny. She planned our wedding timeline down to the minute and coordinated with all our vendors in the weeks leading up to the wedding. On the day of instead of having to worry if everything was being set up correctly and running around setting up place cards we could just relax with our respective bridal parties and get ready while Stephanie got everything ready for us at our venue. She stayed through the whole night making sure everything went smoothly and took down everything after we left. Plus Stephanie has such a warm, bubbly personality you'll want her to be your BFF and still hang out with her even after your wedding is over!

Thank you Beth!

Beth was incredible from start to finish! Besides wedding planning, she’s also done some incredible work in calligraphy and with Celsia flowers (where she still works & teaches), so that was a huge plus. Beth was easy to communicate with at all times, and was always overflowing with positivity and creative solutions to tricky problems - like the time when we had to plan an ENTIRE wedding from scratch 3 weeks before the wedding date due to our original venue closing indefinitely!! Despite this chaos, Beth really worked to ensure my now-husband and I were calm and enjoying the process, and we really appreciated that thoughtfulness.

Also, wedding planning (read: spending) can get out of hand really quick - and Beth is very practical in terms of what’s actually necessary to plan a fun & beautiful wedding that does not compromise the ‘wow’ factor in any way to achieve your vision for the day. All in all, she’s your girl if you want your day to be beyond perfect. Thank you Beth!

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 :)

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.

My planner Shawna went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly on my special day! Even more kudos since this was a destination wedding and I am based in California. We communicated through Skype to work out all the details and expectations for the wedding planning. She knew my style and vision from those helpful Pinterest boards! And I really loved the calligraphy service they offered...for me it was well worth it because I enjoy that dainty detail. :)

I would definitely recommend the SHE Team! You won't be disappointed or as stressed.

Perfect wedding planning experience

Stephanie was our wedding planner and we can't recommend her enough. She helped us find a perfect venue very quickly, planned all decor including flowers and set up, met with our venue to help create our menu, printed and set up all of our menus and signs etc, and provided fantastic day of coordination with her team in addition to countless other details. The fee for her service was more than worth it - Stephanie saved us both lots of time and stress and her attention to detail and vast general wedding expertise made our wedding day beautiful and enjoyable. She suggested vendors that matched our budget and overall vision. Stephanie was also our officiant which was perfect - she created a very personal and lovely ceremony. Thank you Stephanie and Sweetheart Events for everything!

Shawna is the best - we highly recommend!

Having Shawna from Sweetheart Events be part of our wedding was everything we could have hoped for and more! We always knew that we wanted to be very hands on during the wedding planning process and the Sweetheart Events “True to You” package allowed us to do just that. For the year leading up to our wedding Shawna helped us keep our design and decor ideas on track, and most importantly, gave us all the tools to prepare a realistic budget that we could stick to, while ensuring that our overall wedding day vision was fulfilled. She gave us so many tips and suggestions along the way that made our lives much easier during the planning process. Shawna was there for us to do all of the day-of set up and coordination at the venue, including ensuring we were sticking to our timeline. Walking into the venue for the ceremony was the first time either us of saw our vision finally come to life, and it was more beautiful than we even planned for it to be. Shawna made sure the whole day went off without a hitch (and yes, we realize that something almost always goes wrong on a wedding day but if anything did we still have no idea about it) - that is how awesome she is. We will never forget lining up for the ceremony and her giving us so much energy and a little pep-talk for each of us before we walked down the aisle. It is so special to have someone who cares so much about your happiness and who has been so involved in your day stand by your side moments before your final journey on the way to say “I do”. Shawna is one of the kindest people you will ever meet and she is genuinely excited for all her couples. She is always gushing about how much she loves her job and her clients. If you are in search of an event planner that will made your day truly remarkable and your planning process enjoyable and run seamlessly - Shawna and the entire SHE team are your girls!
