Silent Ninja

Jeniffer and her colleauge were astonishing. From the beginning, Jenifer went above and beyond with communication and organisation, ensuring the wedding ran perfectly and had all the elements that could be involved around our budget.

On the day, we got positive feedback from various vendors, commenting on her being the most organised wedding planner they've met. During the event, she was on the ball, and other feedback received was that she made sure who was there to do their jobs and got them done.

On the day, Jenifer was a Silent Ninja in the background (I barely saw her, except when she was helping instruct us the bride and groom)

Everything went flawlessly, and I know who to thank.

Jenifer and her team appreciate all your hard work, communication, and the care and detail you put into our wedding.

Jennifer is wonderful!

Jennifer was an IMPERATIVE help to us and integral to making not only the wedding day but also the weeks leading up to the wedding run smoothly. She came on board around 1 month before the wedding and was professional, incredibly sweet, timely with her email responses, and very efficient. She has obviously done this many times and knows the industry well. Can't recommend her enough, we couldn't have done it without her!

They made our night exceed our expectations

We were referred to Umbrella Events by an Icon in the 2SLGBTQIA+ community and are so happy for the referral. One of us is in logistics so were already organized and had a Gantt chart started lol, but we were looking to hand over the entire d茅cor piece to a planner. Our planner Ariel was amazing, and although we thought we had our bases covered, she was able to add important insight to make sure our i鈥檚 were dotted and our t鈥檚 were crossed and that we kept on schedule. Umbrella Events provided a list of preferred 2SLGBTQIA+ vendors and we ended up using a few which worked out brilliantly. When it came to her main role, which was looking after d茅cor, she hit it out of the park. We gave her our vision and when we walked into the venue on the day of the wedding, she had executed it flawlessly. Additionally, she was on top of everything that night, coordinating with the catering manager at the venue, controlling the bar and the crowd during key moments, directing our entertainment, and everything was on point. The night exceeded our expectations thanks to Ariel and Umbrella Events We highly recommend them for anyone who wants some piece of mind on their special day, and a stellar event.

Organized and delightful wedding planner

How do I even start to write a review for Cristie at Umbrella Events? There are hardly words to describe what a delight she is to work with and how she made our wedding planning stress-free and fun.

My husband and I are from NYC, but had a destination wedding at Grouse Mountain in Vancouver, BC. Not knowing much about the area, we knew we needed a local planner. Umbrella Events was listed as a preferred vendor for the venue, and from our first conversation with Cristie we felt confident about planning a wedding on the other side of the continent.

Cristie was responsive, timely, organized, and thoughtful during every step of the process. She was generous with her time, had amazing input on decor, introduced us to great vendors, and made sure every single detail was perfect on the day.

My husband and I cannot say enough good things about Cristie. We loved that she was part of our wedding!

My Best Friend!

Cristie was and is AMAZING and so kind. I felt no worries the day of my wedding because she had it handled. We had our share of "oops" moments but we all played it cool. One person said, "I didn't even see you wedding planner". And I replied that it's because she's a ninja. She makes everything look effortless and seamless which is the most impressive part about her. I hope I made a lifelong friend =) Love her!

Highly recommend!!!

We needed a wedding coordinator for our reception and are SO glad we went with Umbrella Events! Stephanie made everything run smoothly from start to finish and was absolutely brilliant. We really feel like the reception planned itself, but it was all Stephanie! She was also really fun to be around and a genuinely great person. Would highly recommend to anyone. Thanks, Umbrella Events!

Can't say enough good things!

My wife & I worked with Jen at Umbrella Events for month-of coordination, and she and her team were an absolute joy to work with. From our first meeting, we felt her genuine excitement about our event, and were so impressed by her knowledge about all the details we might have otherwise forgotten. She was very efficient, reliable, and committed to realizing our vision; she was always checking in with us, which allowed us to feel at the centre of the process (making sure that we didn't get lost in the details). When last-minute hiccups came up, Jen was very calm under pressure and helped us find an even better solution! We feel so lucky to have been recommended Umbrella Events - it wouldn't have been the same without them. Thank you Cristie, Jen, and Blair for helping our wedding day be such a magical queer forest success!

A Flawless Day

Our day would not have been the same without Cristie and her assistant Ariel. We chose Umbrella Events' Month Of coordination package because we wanted a stress-free wedding day. After our first meeting with Cristie we were confident we were going to have the perfect day we had been dreaming of. Cristie is detail oriented and has amazing ideas and recommendations. She is very organized and her experience in the industry is quite evident through her work. On the day of our wedding everything was smooth and flawless. Cristie kept in touch with all of our vendors both before and on the big day. Her services played a key role in us having the wedding of our dreams. Thank you Cristie and Ariel!

Just what we needed!

Cristie from Umbrella Events was amazing! We did the "month of" coordination and it was just what we needed. We had already booked the vendors ourselves, but it was great to get help with creating a timeline and remembering all the little details from a professional! Cristie was very easy going and had great recommendations for vendors and cute ideas for decor. The day of coordination was amazing, everything ran smoothly and the set-up of the venue looked amazing!

Umbrella Events came highly recommended to us by Wonderlust Photography at our initial photo consultation; we had not initially intended on hiring a wedding planner but after chatting it through together we decided to meet with her. Our first impression was great - Cristie immediately was very warm and friendly and energetic, and made us feel like we would be in good hands with her as part of the team. We planned as much of the day as we could on our own and met with her once more 3 weeks before our wedding to share and pin down final details, and she was extremely responsive to any emails we sent with ideas or questions.

She helped us with final items regarding scheduling and confirmed with our vendors when they would be arriving, and took charge of our decor items and gifts throughout the night - even making sure everything was dropped off in our hotel room at the end of the night! We're quite certain that she did a million other things we aren't aware of as well; we never had any issues or confusion during the entire event and were able to sincerely relax and enjoy ourselves. Thanks Cristie for your enthusiasm, your kindness, and for making our day go so smoothly! It would not have been the same without you! xo
