Friday, September 17th, 2010 | testimonials, weddings | No Comments

Another one of our fabulous couples is featured in the latest issue of The Calgary Bridal Guide.


It was such fun working with them…they were so cute & very sweet. They both graduated from medical school a few days before their wedding so it was a particularly joyous celebration.


All the best to the cutest M&Ms ever!

CSEP in the house!!

Friday, September 10th, 2010 | testimonials | No Comments

I’m excited to announce I received my CSEP (Certified Special Events Professional) designation this morning. It’s a VERY long process.  If you’d like to read a bit more about it take a look at this link:


I just did a search on the ISES website and there are only 8 (including me) CSEPs listed in all of Canada…I guess I’ve joined an exclusive club!

We loved this couple – we worked with them for about 17 months – and they were awesome.


Such a beautiful bride…!

I realized that this thank you card had been sitting on my desk for WAY too long when they let me know they were going to be in Calgary & would love to get together so we can catch up and introduce me to their 5 month old daughter!!

How time flies! I was thrilled they put me in their calendar as it was the first time they’d been in Calgary since they got married.

I loved working with them & their daughter Maddie is SO cute…great to see you guys! 


Dear Lisa,
Time for the “official” Chan/Strauss thank you cards! I hope this card finds you well!
Thank you again for making our wedding so special! We have enclosed a few pictures from the reception…We hope you enjoy them!
Hope to get together for drinks the next time Tom and I are in Calgary (or call us when you’re in Toronto).
Thanks again!
Monica & Tom

gondola, shmondola

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009 | testimonials, weddings | No Comments

We just received another lovely thank you note from a client that got married this summer. Their wedding almost got cancelled due to high winds threatening to halt gondola service upto the ceremony & reception site:

Dear Lisa,
Thank you so much for all of your efforts putting our wedding together. It could not have been better in any way. The best part is that we didn’t even hear about the gondola drama until the next day.
Our wedding was absolutely perfect!
Thank you.
Melissa and Frank

I worked with Frank & Melissa for about 18 months planning their wedding…such a fun couple. I’ve heard all sorts of things in wedding vows – but this was the first time a bride referred to making out during the theme song to “House”…so great…best wishes you guys!

Perfection in the Park

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2009 | testimonials, trends, weddings | No Comments

This is the scrumptious wedding that Kim executed a couple of weeks ago.schultz-tisdale-014






 From the standing ceremony in the park to the elegant damask paired with yummy reds & oranges and black candelabras it was exactly what the bride & groom had dreamed of (with Kim’s expert design input, of course!). 












This was the email waiting for Kim a couple of days after the wedding:








Hello Kim,
We can’t thank-you enough for how amazing everything turned out, I’m still in awe mode from all of it. Every couple I know that gets married will be referred to you because I want them to experience a wedding day like ours :)
Thanks again
Sincerely, Nicole
The bride screamed & jumped up & down for so long when she got her sneak peak of the ballroom the photographer felt compelled to come in & document it…we can’t wait to see the photos!

Live, Love, Laugh…

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009 | testimonials, trends, weddings | No Comments

So…penniless (and without a lipgloss to my name!)…the next day went on to Kananaskis for a FAB tent wedding. This gorgeous bridal party was adorned with bling so we had to make sure the reception matched. The tent in the midst of the towering pine trees was filled with crystal & bronze trees, and an oh-so-fun candy buffet.
aug-09-390 aug-09-377
When we arrived for tear down at 1am these guys were still going FULL FORCE…it’s a shame about the noise regulations in the resorts in the mountains…otherwise I have no doubt these guys (bride & groom included) would’ve danced until dawn.
All their guests got a good sugar rush & a bottle of wine to sustain them. Everything was adorned with the couple’s motto “Live, Love, Laugh” – which they clearly do with fervor.

Thank you Lisa and all of  The Wedding Planner staff for making August 2nd the best day of our lives!!! The day was run so smoothly and completely exceeded our expectations. Much love, Andrea & James
