I was so excited when I heard back from a couple I met at the 2015 Wedding Co Show, Liane and Colin. Although, they were a bit late on starting their wedding planning process, Liane has such great taste, she really was inspiring to work with and brought on such amazing vendors such as Celine Kim Photography and Patchouli Design for florals.
The wedding was set for late November at one of my favourite wedding venues in Toronto, the Berkeley Church. It may be a “church” but it is no traditional venue with so much character.
It was a very mild day for late November in Canada but Liane and Colin are the type of couple that no weather could ruin their beautiful day. Overall, the day couldn’t have gone went more smoothly (minus burning myself a little with a lighter) and it was really nice being placed so close to the couple! It was such a lovely ceremony led by Kim and reception with amazing catering by the Berkeley Events Catering crew. The room was illuminated with the warm string lighting over the dance floor and dozens of candles placed all around the venue, but nothing lit up the room like the newlyweds’ smiles.
Thank you to the couple and their family for entrusting Bisous Events for their beautiful celebration and for the wonderful review! Wishing you both endless days filled with love and smiles!
Aside from choice of the right bride and groom, booking Bisous Events was the best wedding decision we made! Immediately after we met with Jessica to discuss booking month-of planning services, we instantly felt a weight lift off and knew that we were in excellent hands.
There are so many pieces to pre-wedding and day-of organization/set up that just aren’t known to people who are planning for the first time. Jessica steered us in the best directions and helped us streamline communications with vendors and maximize their services. She was always available to provide advice (responses within 24 hrs), and in the weeks leading up to the day asked us all the right questions to anticipate elements to help the day run smoothly.
Even if a venue provides a coordinator, their priorities can differ. Jessica and her team are there 100% for you and to advocate on your behalf and deal with any little hiccups that pop up in the day, allowing your guests to just enjoy. We got the feeling that she truly cared about our vision and making the event a success, making every effort to be involved with venue communications and key meetings over and above what was contracted for.
It also helped that Jessica has impeccable style and she and her team were meticulous in their work. The décor set up reflected our instructions perfectly (or expertly worked around any last minute hurdles).
As a financial investment, while the peace of mind and comfort on the day alone is worth it, we also felt that the service costs were recovered by her ability to help you focus on what is important to you and re-purpose / maximize décor pieces from the ceremony to the reception. Highly recommend! – Liane & Colin
