If I could give more than 5 stars for value I would! Valerie’s is the most amazing and wonderful co-ordinator. Everything went off without a hitch and I have her to thank! You won’t regret hiring herSent on 20/07/2019

A must to fully enjoy your day!
What to say about Valerie? She is organized, meticulous, caring, approachable, the list goes on and on! We hired her as our wedding day-of-coordinator to allow us to fully embrace our day and to trust that someone would take care of all details and she did just that! The day went seamlessly as she ensured our vision came to life, coordinated our vendors and directed the sequence of events. Everything just rolled perfectly, allowing us to be fully present. She even gave particular attention to the head table, making sure we were well taken care of during dinner. Prior to the big day, Valerie was highly communicative, and we quickly realized that she would have our back! We would recommend Valerie in a heartbeat!Sent on 02/10/2020

A lot of people consider hiring a wedding coordinator to be an extravagance or unnecessary, and not everyone needs a wedding coordinator… but everyone needs a Valerie Thibaudeau. My bride-to-be was easily stressed out, so I knew we needed to hire someone to take the pressure off. My expectations were met and surpassed with Val. We used her “month of” services and they paid off. Val took over communication with all the vendors and made sure we had a perfect day in the making. She decorated our venue better than either of us could have imagined and most importantly she kept the bride and I calm throughout the entire process. The day of, we knew we could rely on Val, and she kept everything on schedule and made sure we (and all our guests) were happy. Mild mannered by day and a wedding coordinating super hero by night; we couldn’t recommend The Ottawa Wedding Planner more.

I literally could not have done this day without Valerie! I didn’t stress about anything the entire year leading up to the wedding or the day of. Everything was exactly the way I hoped it would be! My day was absolutely beautiful because of her! I 100% recommend using this talented woman❤️ Thankyou so much for everything you did! You’re amazing!

Beyond what we needed
We are beyond happy to have hired Val as our wedding day coordinator. She was available for venue walkthroughs before the wedding day, She helped us achieve great decor despite our personal lack of ideas. She thought of things before the wedding day that we would never have thought of in terms of organisation/flow. I know that some things did not go perfectly during the wedding night, but I only knew about it after it was fixed. I would 100% recommend Val as a wedding planner.Sent on 22/09/2019

Let me introduce myself! My name is Valerie and I am your typical hopeless romantic. I have worked extremely hard to turn my passion into a career. Starting my own side hustle at only 22 years of age, I had NO IDEA what I was getting myself into. Fast forward 4 years - I couldn't be happier! I have the most fabulous job in the universe. I mean, who wouldn't want to help brides walk down the aisle on a weekly basis?! This process has taught me so much; the most important thing in the world is to do what you love. Life is too short to be unhappy!
When I'm not busy gardening or hanging out with my crew of animals, you can find me in my craft room working on my latest DIY project.
I always ask couples late in the evening on their wedding day: “Was this the best day of your life?” They always say yes. This is how I know I’m doing my job! You put so much time and money into making sure it’s perfect, let me take over while you relax and make sure it is, in fact, the best day of your lives.
