LIBBY is a wedding planning/directing virtuoso! Our day wouldn't have been the same without her! She is THE BEST!
Our deepest gratitude for the extraordinary job Libby did as our wedding director. From the first meeting to the final send-off, she demonstrated an unparalleled commitment to perfection and an exceptional attention to detail that made our special day absolutely magical.
The decor was nothing short of amazing—every element thoughtfully curated to create a breathtaking atmosphere that perfectly captured our vision. Her ability to transform our ideas into reality surpassed our expectations, and the result was a wedding that felt like a dream.
One of the aspects we truly appreciate is how Libby managed to keep costs lower than we anticipated. Her resourcefulness and creative solutions not only saved us money but also ensured that we didn't compromise on the elegance and beauty of the event. Her financial acumen is truly commendable.
Throughout the night, Libby’s guidance was invaluable, especially as the celebrations unfolded and we found ourselves, admittedly, a little more spirited than planned. Her calm and composed demeanor, coupled with your expert navigation, allowed us to enjoy every moment without worry. Her presence was like a guiding light, and we are genuinely grateful for her unwavering support.
Libby’s input and advice were not only helpful but also showcased her deep understanding of the intricacies of wedding planning. Her design ideas were awesome, and her ability to bring them to life left us in awe. It's evident that she has a true passion for what she does, and it reflects in the excellence of her work.
What sets her apart is not just your professional expertise but also the way she treats her clients. She didn't just feel like a wedding planner/director; she felt like a friend. Her cool, fun, and friendly approach made the planning process enjoyable, and her organizational skills kept everything on track and stress-free.
Ivan and I are truly grateful for the positive energy she brought to every meeting. Her readiness and attention to detail reassured us that we were in capable hands. Libby’s dedication to making our day special did not go unnoticed, and we can't thank her enough.
In short, LIBBY is a wedding planning/directing virtuoso! Our day wouldn't have been the same without her, and we will forever cherish the memories she helped create. Thank you, Libby, for making our wedding day the incredible, joyous occasion it was. Big hugs from Ivan and Ricky!!!
Best wedding planner ever!
Libby Eydelman is one of the greatest event planners and designers. From the moment we got engaged in March of 2021, we knew it would be essential to work with a trusted professional to help bring our wedding's vision to life. We dreamt of a modern, black/white hotel wedding with incredible food, music, and décor; that aesthetic is exactly what Libby helped us achieve. The photos of our wedding day speak for themselves!
A true social butterfly with years of wedding industry experience, Libby has connections with all of the top vendors across Canada. From our venue (Four Seasons Hotel Toronto) to the band (Sole Power Live), photographer (Purple Tree), videographer (Hidden Light Films), stationery (So Pretty In Print), décor/flowers (R5 Event Design), and more, Libby helped us secure it all! She worked hard to negotiate our contracts to ensure we kept within our budget. She also helped us build an incredible event day itinerary, oversaw all logistics, and reassured us that everything would run as smoothly as possible and be perfect on the wedding day.
Best of all, Upon Occasion offered hands-on support and guidance throughout the entire planning process. She was there whenever we needed her and was always more than happy to answer any questions. She was with us from start to finish, ensuring an elevated and seamless event planning experience. We had so much fun working with Libby. If we could do it again, we would choose Upon Occasion EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
Thank you once again to Libby and Upon Occasion for making our wedding a celebration we will cherish and always remember! We can't wait for future mitzvahs and celebrations together.
Love and gratitude,
Zack & Ariella Glazer
Couldn't have asked for a better wedding planner!
We envisioned an elegant Russian-Egyptian fusion wedding, and Libby made it a BETTER reality in just 3 months from start to finish. She made it so easy, and we loved working with her! Libby is fundamentally a project manager and she did everything everywhere from the big picture down to the little details and wouldn’t rest until it was perfect. She’s extremely diligent and organized, professional, straightforward, and on top of her game leading the event, not to mention- hilarious; we just had the best time.
Libby went above and beyond at every step. She even negotiated custom packages and services that were unconventional and in some instances, not permissible, but she made it happen, truly having our best interest at heart.
She understood exactly what we needed and found the perfect vendors for us. Libby and the team made our day precious and unforgettable. It was such a happy wedding day for everyone, and I couldn't have asked for a better wedding planner than Libby!
Best wedding planner!
Looking forward to a lifetime of events together, we love you!

Best Wedding Planner Ever!
Consummate Professional! Must Hire for Any Planned Event
Without any commitment that I would sign with her Libby made an appointment to come to my home on the other side of the city to meet with my family so she could get to know us and put together a tentative vision for our day. She arrived on time and within the hour had an outline for a theme, ideas for venues, décor, food etc. mapped out. She did not try to pressure us to go with her, she told us to look around if we liked. I signed up with her within 24 hours, I knew she was the right fit for our family.
With just over a month to the big day Libby hit the ground running. Libby saved not only my sanity but hours in research and phone calls. She organized meetings with the venue and vendors, took care of the contracts, negotiated competitive pricing and even got them to throw in little extras. I could see she had an excellent rapport with the vendors, which showed on the day of the event as the vendors, venue, décor, food, music, photography and videography were all superb and professional.
Throughout the process, Libby had to contend with changing COVID restrictions, and changing guest numbers as guests changed their minds between in person vs. virtual attendance. Libby remained in constant contact with me over the course of the month, I never had to guess what was going on or where she was in her timeline. Libby kept a close eye on the budget advising me what was good value verses something that would be nice to have, but not necessary, as it wouldn’t make or break the day.
On the day of the event, I didn’t have to think or worry about anything but enjoying myself. Libby and her contractors arrived early and transformed the venue into a masterpiece. We received so many compliments from our guests about what a wonderful job she did. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart isn’t even enough, I consider myself lucky and blessed to have found you….Lara
Libby is Spectacular!
Libby listened to our needs, matched us with the right vendors so we got our dream wedding! Our wedding was truly beautiful, more so than I had even imagined it to be. The vendors, venue, food, music, photography and videography were out of this world.
Most impressive was the short time frame we were working with, Libby came through in less than 1 month. Our friends and family are still talking about our wedding and how amazing it was. My husband and I were truly blessed to find Libby, she is reliable and caring and we are so grateful for her talents and experience, we really couldn’t have done it without her.
We would highly recommend Libby and Upon Occasion for any event.
Amazing experience! Highly recommended
Best wedding planner in town!
