Amazing Experience and Exceeded Expectations

I hired Cassandra fairly last minute as I became overwhelmed by planning and organizing a wedding in Kelowna while living in Ontario. I did a partial planning and wedding coordination package with her and I honestly feel like I got more than I expected. Cassandra was extremely helpful and our wedding would not have been what it was without her. She even did all of our table and flower arrangements! I had some odd requests and a very particular vision of what everything would look like. All of my expectations were exceeded when I saw the venue on the day of. I would recommend anyone to use White Haven and work with their team. It was a breeze working with them and we had an amazing day because of it.

Stress free wedding - Amazing!

Thinking about contacting White Haven Weddings & Events for your big day? - Do it! Cassandra is amazing!
We only booked her for the day of the wedding package and she went well above and beyond making sure that everything was aligned, ran smoothly, and that we didn't have to worry about a thing - which gave us time to focus on our guests and each other. We couldn't be more please with her professionalism, organizational skills, enthusiasm, and friendliness. Its evident that she truly enjoys what she does.
An added bonus was that she also provides flowers which really helped complete the vison that we wanted.
Our guests still comment on how much fun they had at our wedding and also how great Cassandra was.
Want your big day or event to be stress free? - don't hesitate to book White Haven Weddings & Events.

Can't imagine my day without White Haven Weddings - Above and Beyond Amazing!

Amazing customer service, so professional and truly attentive to every detail. Would definitely recommend Cassandra at White Haven Weddings for your special day! She was able to balance my HUGE chaotic wedding party, kept everyone organized, and made sure we had a 100% stress free, fun, magical day. She went above and beyond for every single detail and step, from table-scape design, selecting bridesmaid dresses, to making sure I looked perfect moments before I walked down the aisle, Cassandra was there for me. I had two venues, and I was worries it would be difficult coordinating decor, setup, and people between the ceremony and reception but Cassandra at White Haven Weddings made sure the transition was flawless. Best day of our lives thanks to Cass!!!

Not sure what we would have done without her help!

We can't tell you how fantastic it was working with Cassandra on the lead up to our wedding. She was so helpful and responsive!
