Over the moon with Swoon
Alana is absolutely amazing, we don't know what we would've done without her! Living in London, UK and planning a wedding in Toronto we knew quickly we needed a wedding planner. We found Alana on weddinwire and after our first FaceTime meeting we knew we wanted her straight away to do our full planning. For us it was not only important with the quality of work the wedding planner did, but also how she was as a person since we would be spending so much time planning together. She has a great personality and positive energy that is contagious and that you just love immediately. Alana knew straight away what we liked. She went above and beyond for us, and that truly makes her special. She was extremely hands on and was very responsive in the 10 months or so. She has great network of vendors and knowledge about the industry. She introduced us to the best vendors that made our day absolutely perfect. We had the best time because we knew Alana had everything under control and it all went to smoothly. Our families absolutely loved Alana and were so extremely impressed by her work. We would not have been able to do it without her. Hiring Alana was definitely the best money we spent for the wedding.Sent on 02/05/2018
Alana is someone who sees you, sees your vision, sees you as a person not just a client, she cares about creating a magical experience. Having been in touch with her for so long, she's now a part of our lives forever. I was sad when the wedding was coming because that meant less e-mails and calls with this wonderful woman.
We highly recommend Swoon Events for any type of events. Not only will clients get their dream event, but they'll meet an amazing woman along the way.
Swoon Events's reply:Arezo - thank you for the incredibly kind words. It means so much to me. It has been an absolute pleasure planning with you and Kwabena over the last year. Your wedding was truly a celebration of your love, and I am so honoured to have been a part of it. Wishing you both all the best!

Swooning over Alana’s services!
Hands down, our wedding would not have been as smooth without Alana’s month-of services. I am a very hands-on bride, and I was more than impressed with her. She had my complete confidance from the moment I met with her; she had been recommended to me from two other brides that provided rave reviews, and definitely lived up to it. I was able to hand off a major chunk of my month of duties, and Alana ran with it. She was in touch with each one of my vendors, ensuring that I was able to get hitched without a hitch. The day of, Alana was like a magician. She was everywhere at once somehow and right there when I needed her. I would recommend Swoon Events to any bride or groom to-be. We were truly able to enjoy our big day because all of the details were taken care of. Thanks Alana!Sent on 11/02/2018

Can't go wrong with Swoon Events!
Alana is amazing! She is responsive, organized and committed to ensuring that your day is exactly how you envisioned it. She truly listened to our hopes for our wedding and ensured that we were happy with the outcome of our wedding. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding planner.Sent on 19/04/2018
Swoon Events's reply:Thank you so much Tania! It has been a pleasure working with you over the last two years. Everything came together beautifully. Wishing you and Luis all the best!

Our Special Day
Alana is the best! Her calm demeanour and preparation for our wedding was top notch, along with an extremely high level of professionalism she brings to the job. She also seems to have a solution to any issues that come up prior or during the big day, and seems to have a great relationship with all the vendors we worked with. Would highly recommend.Sent on 03/07/2018

I cannot say enough good things about Alana. She was the absolutely savior of my wedding. It would not have gone so perfectly without her. My only regret is not hiring her as a full service wedding planner from the start!Sent on 19/10/2017
Swoon Events's reply:Thank you so much Rebecca! I hear that a lot from clients - that they wish they had help from the start. It was wonderful working with you and Adam, wishing you both all the best!

I hired Alana at Swoon Weddings and Events for full planning for my wedding. After reaching out and meeting with many different wedding planners, I decided to go with Swoon. It was the best money I spent through out the wedding process!Sent on 07/11/2017
Alana worked with me for a year and a half to plan my wedding and bring my vision to life. She was always available for phone calls, texts and meetings. She went above and beyond what I expected and made me feel taken care of. I really felt as though it was like having a friend help me plan my wedding - but a super knowledgeable, responsive and hard working friend! It was great having someone to turn to that has a wealth of knowledge in an industry that I am totally unfamiliar with.
In the end, my wedding went off without a hitch. But to be honest, I am not surprised. Alana helped me every step of the way and coordinated everything without me even asking her to. Every detail was meticulously planned well in advance. I have a demanding career and knew I would not be able to devote as much time to planning as others, so it was amazing to have Alana there. I could count on her to get things done the way I wanted them.
I would absolutely recommend Swoon to anyone and everyone. In fact, I was so pleased with Alana from Swoon that I recommended her to a friend of mine. She was so impressed and ended up booking Alana from Swoon for full wedding planning as well!

As we expressed in our wedding speech, "Alana literally took every little detail, wrapped it all together and put a big, shiny bow on it!"Sent on 24/10/2017
Alana was truly outstanding, not only as a coordinator but as a person and friend. From our very first meeting and throughout the wedding preparations, Alana was helpful (as were her guides!), attentive, and highly detailed (she captured everything we said). She was available whenever we needed, always with a smile and positive attitude. Alana brought a sense of calm and definite reliability to our wedding prep and on the big day she made it ALL come together and happen. She was on top of everything at the wedding and even brought us some items last minute that our rental company wasn't able to. Not only is Alana great at her job, she is a great person. A+++
Swoon Events's reply:Thank you so much Stephanie! It was such a fun wedding and I'm so happy I could help make it all come together so well. It was so wonderful getting to know you and Kevin, wishing you both all the best as Mr & Mrs!

In the beginning of the wedding process I was unsure if I wanted to hire a day of coordinator. We hired Alana for month/day of coordination and it was the BEST decision! From day one, Alana was very responsive and attentive. She reminded me that I could ask her questions, gave her professional opinion on decisions I was unsure of, and asked me thorough questions to ensure she understood every detail of our day. Looking back, I emailed Alana almost every day in the month leading up to our wedding and she responded to each one promptly and with genuine care. Alana always had a positive energy and attitude and kept me excited for the big day. She genuinely cared about our wedding and it is great to have someone involved in your big day that is so easy to talk to and just wants the best for you! Alana provided us with a very detailed customized Wedding Guide that helped us, our wedding party and vendors stay organized. She happily updated the guide every time a detail changed- even up to the day before the wedding! On the day of our wedding, Alana was on time and came prepared with a big emergency kit suitcase which we thankfully never had to use. I trusted Alana to set up a lot of our decor and she did a great job, it was exactly what I had envisioned if not better. Alana did a fantastic job of keeping our day on schedule (we actually stayed on schedule!) and everyone raved about how the day went so smoothly. She was great with all of our vendors and happy to recommend some in the planning process. I found my hair & makeup through her recommendation and I was very happy with them. We had an absolutely stress free wedding day thanks to Alana and would highly recommend Swoon Weddings & Events!!Sent on 07/10/2017
Swoon Events's reply:Thank you for such an amazing review Kaitlyn! I'm so happy I could be a part of your wedding. Wishing you and Mike all the best.
