Seamless Coordination!

I knew immediately that I needed help planning the wedding, and hired VIP soon after getting engaged in December 2017 for our September 2019 date. I cannot say enough good things about Sarah Mitchell. She has a way of making you feel so comfortable with such an overwhelming experience. Having recommendations based on her experience and vendor contacts made those decisions even easier, and she was able to get references for vendors I was interested in that she had never worked with.

Every single email, random text, phone call, and itemized list was met with a prompt response and/ or detailed explanation. Sarah worked with me to make my vision come to life within my budget, and graciously handled my last minute changes.

The day of was no less than stunning. Sarah and Kihya flipped my venue space during a very tight cocktail hour, and turned it into everything I had imagined it to be. If there were any hiccups during the day, I couldn't tell you about them, and I am so grateful for that!

I highly recommend Sarah Mitchell (and the VIP team) for any planning service, because I know they are passionate about what they are doing. Thank you so much for the time spent over the last year and a bit, and for the unforgettable day!!

So worth it!

Sarah was amazing!! She went above & beyond to make sure that the day went smoothly, from calming my nerves when the rain started to fall for my walk down the aisle, to helping me bustle my dress, to helping us come up with a timeline that flowed so smoothly. To fixing any minor hiccups that happened without us even noticing. I would definitely recommend her everyone!

Must have for any wedding!

Sarah and her team where instrumental in providing a stress-free, on time and overall amazing day. The importance of day-of coordination cannot be overstated and I would book her for any event I put on in the future. The partial planning option was also a monumental help to ensure all aspects of the wedding were taken care of right down to the smallest detail.

Couldn't have done it without VIP Consultants!

Our wedding was beautiful, fun, and stress free! The credit to its success must go to Sarah and her team at VIP Consultants. Sarah did an amazing job in the organization – her many years of experience, and knowledge of the “wedding market”, clearly showed as she helped us select a perfect venue, pick the decorations, keep us on budget, chose the best vendors, and take care of all the little things that we would never have thought of. I was regularly reminded how busy wedding planning could be, but Sarah was always there to take care of things and make it easy. Thanks Sarah and team for the hard work and the amazing wedding you organized and pulled off!

Experienced experts

I can't recommend Sarah and Carlyna enough. We were hesitant about getting wedding planning or coordination services because we wanted to stick to a budget and we'd already done a lot of our vendor selections. I'm also a big planner so I was honestly a little skeptical about what she could do that I couldn't!

That said, from our first meeting with Sarah, we knew it she would be worth it. Her wealth of experience is a goldmine: when she gives her advice or opinion, you can absolutely trust it. She worked with us to find a custom package that met our needs and our budget. She was always available and easy to communicate with, and she never made us feel like we were asking silly questions. She listened to our ideas and never suggested something that didn't line up perfectly with our vision. Somehow, she understand exactly what we were going for.

In the weeks and months leading up to the wedding, Sarah gave us peace of mind: she remembered things we forgot, offered her trusted top picks out of overwhelming vendor options, pointed out issues before we'd even thought of them, facilitated vendor communication, solved problems before we had time to freak out about them, and used her wealth of experience to save us time and money. She took on a large part of the mental load so that we didn't have to!

Sarah and Carlyna did the same thing for the wedding itself. They were friendly and organized; our officiant even said that she'd never had a ceremony rehearsal go so smoothly before! They took care of set up and tear down, and knew all the answers so that if anyone asked me a question the day of, I could just say, "I dunno, ask Sarah or Carlyna!" It was such a relief to know that they had everything under control, and it meant that our families could actually enjoy the day without having to worry about a thing. Without them, the day would have been more expensive, more chaotic, and more stressful. If you're thinking about day-of coordination, partial planning, or design consultation, you cannot go wrong with VIP Event Consultants.

As a young same-sex couple, we had a specific vision in our hearts of our special day but had no one to turn too...that is until we connected with VIP Event Consultants. I can not quite put into words how breathtaking the whole experience was, for what I am sure will be the only time in my life, to have someone capture an image in our minds only to bring that dream into reality! Our wedding went down in the books as one of the most elegant and memorable events of the season. My husband and I were treated like royalty on our special day, the whole thing still has us gobsmacked. From the stunning design and decor to the white glove service, I could not be more impressed.

From the very first meeting with Sarah and Carlyna, we knew we were in good hands. She guided us through uncharted territory helping make suggestions, source vendors and even going so far as to find an alternate source for our wedding favors to make sure our budget was on point!

I would strongly recommend the professional and outstanding service the VIP Event Consultants provides. We could not be happier!!

Thank you again to the VIP Event Consultant team & their vendors for helping make our wedding a dream come true.

From the moment we got engaged, my husband and I knew we wanted our day to be stress free and fun. We decided to hire a day of coordinator. We hired Sarah and Carlyna to help us with our day. It was absolutely the best decision we made. They took care of everything the day of, set up, managing who goes where and when, and fixing any issues that may have arose during our day. Sarah was so easy to work with and was always there, just a quick email away. She is so diligent and gets everyone organized in a timely manner. We were so lucky to have found her, our day went off without a hitch. I would recommend her services to anyone getting married. Funny, smart, on the ball, organized and more, she is AMAZING!! Her knowledge and experience with weddings will help anyone have the day they dream of. Totally worth the investment!!!

There is no way we could have pulled off our wonderful steampunk themed wedding without the help of Sarah and Carlyna! From every step of planning to being there on the day off to take care of it all, the whole experience was so stress free! Likeable, professional and caring, the team at VIP Event Consultants were everything we could hope for in a wedding planner! - Lisa & Brent

From the moment my husband and I got engaged we knew that we wanted our engagement and wedding planning process to be happy, stress free and fun. I knew that with our work and personal commitments that it would be impossible without some help. We are entrepreneurs with huge commitments and lots of travel. We were bit overwhelmed at the idea of also planning a wedding with our already limited time.

I immediately started searching out potential wedding planners and came across Sarah and VIP. I read her reviews and how many brides were completely gushing about how much Sarah helped them with their entire wedding and I knew in my gut she was the person I wanted to help us. Upon our first meeting I could tell that Sarah knew what she was talking about, had confidence, style and the warm personality that would be a pleasure to work with.

Being a complete A-Type boss babe, I was skeptical that someone could be as particular and on top of things for my wedding as I knew I was going to be. I seriously couldn't ask for a more together, responsive, intelligent, on the ball gal as Sarah is. She is the key to our wedding going on without a hitch and with as low of a stress level as possible!! She is clever, quick thinking, funny and knows exactly ever single thing it takes to have a FABULOUS event. We opted for the full package and had the pleasure of working with Sarah for 5 months as we planned our 160 person wedding. She took us through everything in as much detail as we wanted. We knew quite quickly that we could trust Sarah's opinion and to take care of things on our behalf. Honestly, she has such great taste that I felt like she knew exactly what I liked. She was so concerned with our happiness that she wouldn't let us "settle" for anything less than me jumping up and down squealing with joy at anything from table cloths to flowers to centrepieces. She NEVER let us just make a decision to appease anyone or because we didn't find what we liked right away. She spent as long as it took to make sure we LOVED everything. She did all of this with a smile on her face, a calm demeanour and with pure joy. The thing is, you can see how much she loves what she does and that this isn't a job - it is her passion.

I never once doubted Sarah or her knowledge or ability to get things done. I never wondered if she did something I asked or when I would hear from her. She was quick, organized and involved 120% - AND she was working on several other weddings at the same time!

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Sarah and her team and every single gal at the wedding that met her said that they couldn't wait to get engaged to hire her!

She is most honestly and truly a classy, smart and gorgeous wedding fairy godmother and anyone clever enough to hire her will be beyond blessed to work with her.

Hiring Sarah and her team at VIP was THE best decision we made for our wedding. No exaggeration.

Best of luck you gorgeous brides!!!

We are SO HAPPY with VIP Events Consultants!!!!!!!

If you are looking or trying to decide if you want a wedding planner the answer is that Yes you need a wedding planner and Sarah Mitchell does it all. You may think you can plan your own wedding but as soon as you start planning you realize that you have no idea how to plan a wedding and all the little details that involved(trust me we are guilty of this ) We highly recommend Sara Mitchell with VIP Events Consultants. From our first meeting with Sarah we knew she was the right person to plan our wedding. Sarah was very knowledgeable, helpful and knew all of the ins and outs to planning OUR perfect wedding. She never pushed anything on us which was really nice, and she was so so patient with us even when we had little meltdowns. Sarah pretty much has any and every connection in the wedding world, from the best photographers to the greatest DJ’s in the city. We couldn’t of picked a better wedding planner. The day of our wedding is where Sarah really shined. Everything we discussed through the year was set up perfectly as we walked down the aisle. The best part about Sarah was the fact that she and her team stayed until the very end of the night to ensure everything went smoothly. Sarah Mitchell (VIP Event consultants ) we thank you for making our night unforgettable and I’m sure many others.
