Meet Jessica Hoang
creative director & lead planner
When Jessica plans a wedding she likes to keep things classic; nothing overdone or too embarrassing for your future husband. She’s able to combine ideas, designs, and expectations so that the first day of the rest of your lives together is exactly what you both imagined. Her eye for clean lines and knack for picking out the essentials makes her the perfect go-to. Jessica is organized, personable, creative, adaptable and just a little bossy—in essence everything you want in a wedding planner.
After graduating from university, Jessica spent nearly two years backpacking across Asia & the US before returning to Toronto and getting her WPIC certification and studying floral design. After traveling to Paris for the first time, she fell in love with everything French; the architecture, the history & the opulence.. even the company name!
I was brainstorming names for my new company, I was talking to my husband (boyfriend at the time) and when he hung up, he said what he always does.. “bisous.”
She credits her resourcefulness and her ability to connect with almost anyone to her travels and broad work experience. Jessica has years of experience with weddings, corporate and private events; always taking a hands-on approach. As her full-time career, her meticulous planning skills will help your dream day materialize while staying on track.
Intuitive. Dedicated. Quirky.

How would you describe your style?
J: My personal style and event aesthetic go hand and hand. I really like clean lines, textures, mixing modernity with vintage elements. I love checking out vintage stores for antique frames for weddings and a distressed leather jacket for my personal closet.
What are you favourite wedding styles?
J: I love so many different colour palettes, wedding styles and themes! But my favourite colour palettes tend to be either earthier and muted colour palettes with ivory, greys, champagne and white. I also love it when clients choose a single pop of colour like cobalt blue stripes. My favourite wedding styles tend to not be overly themed but very cohesive. I love mixing eclectic pieces and including personalized items, like calligraphy signs or DIY projects. I love feeling inspired especially when it’s an untraditional wedding, in a unique location like a warehouse, where I can really reimagine the space.
Where do you suggest your clients start when thinking of a theme?
J: I always like to start with something small and expand from there but always keeping that starting point in mind, for example, your favourite colour. You can incorporate that colour in a few of the large decor items like linens or in the floral arrangements. You can also find inspiration in maybe your favourite movie or country you both met.
What do you love most about weddings?
J: I love seeing the whole thing come together and seeing how happy people are! Spaces being transformed, people flying from all over the world, seeing all the hard work come together and seeing how happy everyone is; it’s pretty amazing.

“WHY “BISOUS” IN BISOUS EVENTS?”
(pronounced like “bee-zoo”)
In French, “bisous” means “kisses” and everything in French sounds so beautiful! Jessica hears it at least a couple times a day from her fiance right before he is about to hang up or leave the house so it only seemed right.
Et voila! Your first act as a married couple will be to share a “bisou” infront of your friends and family; why not plan your union with that same romance? Oh you French folk, can you do anything wrong? *swoons*”
