Consummate Professional! Must Hire for Any Planned Event
Consummate Professional…Unflappable…Organized…Experienced…detail oriented…Personable… A Class Act! These are just a few of the many adjectives that I could apply to Libby and my experience in working with her. I found Libby during an online search while attempting to plan my son’s Bar Mitzvah on my own in the mist of COVID, 1.5 months before the event date. By the time I reached out to an event planner I was already anxious and over my head. I had a relatively small budget to work with. Libby made me feel right away like my budget would be sufficient to have an event that would rival any, and that I wouldn’t have to compromise my vision for my son’s day.Sent on 14/08/2021
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

Best wedding planner in town!
If I had to describe the experience we had with Libby, it would take me a week to write it all down. In short, it was flawless and the end result was spectacular!! If I could give her 10/5, I would. From the very first meeting to the very last, she was professional, fun, organized and very meticulous. During the year of planning my wedding, she became my secound mother, and I would share everything with her, the good, the bad and the ugly and she went the super extra mile to ensure that both my hubby and I had our dream wedding. We couldn't of pulled it all off without her and we will forever be grateful to Libby for her amazing talents, support and professionalism. Thank you, love R&JSent on 20/08/2019

VERY highly recommend!
Libby Eydelman and her team at Upon Occasion were an absolutely invaluable resource throughout the entire wedding planning process. Libby was readily accessible, professional, hard-working, and extremely knowledgeable. Coordinating a wedding is an enormous undertaking. Corners cannot afford to be cut. With Libby and Upon Occasion, we could rest assured that all of the details, both large and small, would be attended to. Libby follows up with all vendors, ensures everyone arrives on time and in the correct location, verifies contracts, responds to emails with courtesy and timeliness, and offers excellent suggestions for making the day special! The four meetings we had with Libby were efficient and enlightened us regarding what arrangements were imperative to focus on. We could have easily booked her for more meetings, and less than four, in our opinion, would be doing yourself a great disservice. Finally, the day of our wedding went off without a hitch. Libby made certain to take care of every single thing and allowed us to be completely present with each other as well as our guests. The itinerary Libby organized with us was perfect, and our entire day from morning to the final song of the night went beautifully. We would very highly recommend Libby Eydelman and Upon Occasion to be your next special events planner.Sent on 28/05/2019

Amazing Wedding Planner
We are very grateful to have had Libby help us plan our wedding. There are so many things we would not have thought of or not have known how to go about if it was not for her.Sent on 02/05/2018
Libby was a wealth of information- she wrote up our itinerary for the day, (which was so important) was very detailed and was a pleasure to work with.
We looked forward to and enjoyed all of our meetings planning the wedding and felt like we were meeting with a friend or family member.
Thank you, Libby, for your caring, warmth and we look forward to staying in touch.
