    Umbrella = phenomenal!

    I honestly don't know what I would have done without Cristie - she was an absolute lifesaver!! I am based in Victoria but held the wedding in Vancouver, and Cristie helped me put together absolutely everything from afar. She has incredible contacts and made everything so smooth and simple for me - even when I was having a wedding meltdown, or changed my mind 500 times about things! For the wedding day, she had everyone and everything set up on a strict timeline and her communication with myself and the vendors ensured everything stayed right on track. I was a total nervous wreck but she kept me (and my mother!!) calm and positive all day and throughout the evening celebrations. The venue looked absolutely stunning with the decor she arranged and set up, and I so appreciate the effort she went to in trying to find items in my very-specific colour scheme! From day one I felt that everything was under control and I knew my big day was in good hands! Not only is Cristie super organised, professional, and experienced with large events, she is an amazing, bubbly person who will become a true friend throughout the process. I cannot recommend her and her team enough! Thank you Umbrella Events for EVERYTHING - you are amazing!!

    Just the absolute best

    I truly don't even know where to begin with this review. Cristie is hands down one of the most genuine, hardworking, passionate, and hilarious woman I have met to date.

    I had met with a couple wedding planners prior to meeting with Cristie and I was basically ready to go with someone else until Cristie just blew them out of the park. We sat down at Starbucks and instantly connected. She was so easy going but also very professional and organized. My husband and I didn't want a typical wedding and she read our minds. From there Cristie has essentially been my lifeline during the 18 months of planning.

    She was SO attentive; even during her busy wedding months. Cristie somehow found the absolute perfect venue for us and then all the best vendors. She kept a timeline going and we corroborated on a to-do list that was consistently updated. When I say we had a lot of questions... WE HAD A LOT of questions. Being the first one of our group of friends to get married we were basically clueless but cue Cristie to the rescue. No question went unanswered and not once did she make us feel like a question was dumb.

    Cristie went above and beyond throughout the planning process. No matter the stress, anxiety, or tears she was always there to talk us through everything and not once did I feel as if everything wasn't under control and usually much ahead of schedule!

    The month of communication was superb and we went into our wedding week feeling as though everything was completely taken care of. Everything was organized and her communication with all of the vendors and MC was remarkable. Not to mention her EXTREMELY detailed timeline for the day-of that would put any person at ease.

    The wedding weekend. We got married in Penticton and it was a full weekend event. Cristie was there throughout the entire rehearsal and we walked through every detail again on the Friday night. She even took time to make a relative a gluten free pizza we forgot to put in the oven. Seriously; just beyond thoughtful and caring.

    The wedding day; honestly If something didn't go as planned... to this day we still have no idea. Cristie and her assistant Taylor were just phenomenal. The set up was perfect, the decor looked INCREDIBLE, the organization was perfect, timing was perfect. We just truly cannot put into words how grateful we are for Cristie, Taylor, and Umbrella Events. All of my family and friends raved about her and just how truly helpful they both were. Not once did us or our family have to worry about anything other than having the best time of our lives. So from the bottom of our hearts; thank you Cristie and Taylor for making our day the most stress-free and perfect time of our lives.

    SO, moral of this; do yourself a favour and stop looking. Umbrella Events is the only way to go and to say we highly recommend is an understatement. THANK YOU xo

    Fantastic experience!

    My husband and I got married April 2018. We had a lot on our plates outside of the wedding planning, but had started putting together our vision of how we wanted our day to be. We soon realized that we would definitely benefit from assistance with pulling things together. I was provided with a referral to Cristie and her team at Umbrella Events and was told that they were excellent to work with. That was an understatement!! Cristie went above and beyond helping me sort out all the numerous details involved with planning and putting on the wedding She worked with our vendors and made sure everything ran smoothly the day of the wedding. We have had non stop compliments abut how great and well organized the wedding was. Cristie and her team made sure all the details were taken care of, down to the tiniest ones. She also had great recommendations for vendors that I hadn't yet secured, and made sure that they would fit into our budget! Cristie and her team from Umbrella Events were one of the BEST INVESTMENTS that we made and we HIGHLY recommend them!!!

    Cristie was fantastic! She was so easy to work with leading up to the wedding and then did an amazing job on the big day. It was such a stress relief knowing I was working with her! She was always friendly and responsive to emails and calls. She made sure everything ran smoothly and on schedule and she even helped with decor and made the venue look amazing. I would definitely recommend Cristie!

    Cristie made the whole day go by swimmingly. I could trust her, rely on her, and know that she would pull it all together. I wanted to be her friend because she made me feel so held and so loved. Everything I dreamed she got and brought to life. She also gave me great advice like 'now don't ugly cry' as I was about to walk down the aisle!
