Madison was the day-of coordinator for our wedding and her services were one of the best investments we made for the wedding in order to the make the day go as smoothly and as stress-free as possible. She was super easy to communicate with and touched base regularly with me during the planning process. Madison and her assistant attended the rehearsal, picked up and setup all the decor at our venue (huge relief to not have to worry about that on the wedding day!) and managed the ceremony details perfectly. I would definitely recommend Toast Events to other brides!

Our experience with Toast was amazing from my first meeting with Elise, right up to our wedding day and beyond! We clicked right away and I knew these ladies would work tirelessly to ensure our wedding day was perfectly organized and we were not disappointed, in fact our expectations were totally exceeded! We could not imagine having to go through the months leading up to our wedding without the help of Elise and her team, our day was absolutely perfect and we were happily able to feel like guests at our wedding day without a single worry! I would (and will!) recommend Toast to anybody on the hunt for a planner, and will also recommend them to those who don't know or think they need a planner! My husband and my family all agree, hiring these ladies was easily the best money we spent on our wedding.

From the moment I met Elise from Toast Events I knew she was passionate about what she did. I had already interviewed a few other wedding planners and within a few minutes I knew she was my girl. Elise was confident but not pushy. She is well connected in the industry and I soon realized how well liked she was by the vendors in Ottawa. To be honest I felt lost in the beginning and as Elise showed me a few venues she gave me her honest opinion on what she thought would suit Sean and I the best and she was right. Elise was always quick to respond to any questions I had in the months leading up to our wedding. I was never worried she wouldn't get back to me in a timely manner and if she didn't know the answer, which was rare, she soon found it quickly. As we got closer to the big day she was on fire. I could not get over how attentive, professional and calm she was. I never felt stressed because I knew everything was well organized. On the day of the wedding everything was smooth as silk and I knew it would be. Sean and I were both completely at ease and were able to just enjoy our day. Elise goes above and beyond, she is creative and has great taste. She made sure that our precious items were all packed in my parents car as we continued to dance the night away. She even thought to put a piece of our wedding cake in a take home container and we were pleasantly surprised when we found it. I would recommend Toast Events to any couple who are planning a wedding! It was the best decision we made when we started our planning. Thank you Elise and your team for making our day perfect and completely stress free!

Hiring Toast Events was the best decision we could have made. Madison helped with everything during the month-of our wedding, and the rest of the team made our day run so smoothly. I am going to recommend Toast to every bride I meet/know. They are incredible. BEST DECISION EVER.

We had an absolutely amazing experience with Elise and her team at Toast for our wedding in May. Before going into all the details, I just want to say Elise, Madison, and Allie really allowed us to have that perfect wedding that we all dream of. They really exceeded our expectation!

From our initial meeting, we felt that Elise was organized, open & flexible to ideas. We chose to the Month-before option, where Toast helped us plan the details of the itinerary and the final timeline with our vendors. Though they were not involved in the initial planning process, Elise was always prompt with answering questions, given us a lot of good tips, and recommended great vendors throughout the year.

During the final month, we met with Elise several times and with each meeting I felt very confident in entrusting her and her team with leading the wedding on the day of. The itinerary was detailed down to the minute and she took into consideration all possible scenarios to make sure everything runs smoothly.

On the day of the wedding, they took lead of decorating and managing all the vendors. I did not feel an ounce of stress from that aspect and had full confidence of the team. There were definitely hiccups as all wedding have (we had a vase broken due to strong winds right before the ceremony), but Elise and her team managed them seamlessly without putting stress on my part. I think we all really truly appreciated that. The wedding turned out even better than what we have envisioned and the work that Elise and her team did was monumental to the success.

Even after 4 months, our guests are still raving about our wedding and we definitely have to thank Toast for that! We will definitely recommend Toast to all our friends who will be getting married in Ottawa! If you choose Toast, you will not be disappointed!

Phenomenal service from styling to coordinating to managing us, we could not be more thrilled with the outcome. Our wedding was beautiful and truly memorable and we have Elise and her team to thank for that. I highly recommend Toast Events to anyone looking to plan an unforgettable event.
