Crystal was the wedding planner for our garden wedding. Not only is she extremely creative and exceeded my expectations in every area but, she is also a sheer delight to work with. She turned my crazy vision into an "English Garden Wonderland. "
She is very organized, professional, and "Detail" should be her middle name. She worked with my other wedding vendors to lend support and expertise where needed. I highly recommend Crystal if you're planning a wedding, party, or other special occasion where you want every last detail to be perfect. She also has a wonderful group of vendors to refer you to.

While all of our vendors were fantastic - the overall success of the entire wedding is due in most to Crystal- our wedding planner, who also assembled the dream team for our big day. She was with us from the beginning of the planning process through to the end of the night - helping us shape, create, and execute the day of our lives. Crystal did an amazing job.

We began working with her a year before the wedding and were impressed with her expressed commitment to making our wedding representative of our personalities. This sounded terrific - but we had no idea how to shape the day as neither of us grew up dreaming about our wedding day. We really relied on Crystal in those early days as she lead us through the preliminary planning process and provided us an understandable framework that allowed us to start thinking about what our wedding would be.

After Crystal helped us assemble an all-star team of vendors - she began the most challenging part of the planning process as we began insisting on making different design elements ourselves. While this must have been stressful, she didn't show any distress and put absolute trust in us. It soon because clear, as we started showing her some of the test-elements we had made, that she was incredibly motivated to work with Paras (Design2Decor) to create an overall design that was strengthened by the presence of our elements, accentuating them in such a way to give our wedding that personal touch she was committed to when we first met. It was clear that this realization of just how to create a wedding representative of our personalities was an exciting moment in the process for her - one that she was willing to work as hard as it took to achieve.

During the early stage of wedding planning, we talked about the idea of having full fish in our wedding as Chinese wedding banquet typically have full fish in the menu as a symbol of luck. Finding that challenging for our non-Chinese guests to digest, we briefly discussed the possibility of purchasing gold fishes to show instead of eat. But we quickly discarded that idea as we will have nowhere to keep the fish after the wedding (other than our 3 cats' dinner bowls). On the wedding day, right after the ceremony, Crystal stole us from the photographers, parents, makeup artist....etc. and took us to the tent to have the first look of our now-realized-dream setting. Everything looked more beautiful than we planned; and, as of it wasn't enough, Crystal directed our attention bar shouted out "surprise!". Sitting on the bar table, were two tall cylindrical glass vases filled with water-submerged white Cymbidium Orchids; within them, sparks of orange gold fish! Crystal gave us her pet fish as a personal wedding present. This is how much she cares. At the end of the night the fish went back home with Crystal!

On the day of the wedding Crystal was there from start to finish. Both the ceremony and the reception seemed to happen effortlessly - and that's what was so impressive. Crystal coordinated with all the vendors - ensuring that they were able to do their jobs to the best of their ability - allowing us and all our guests to simply enjoy ourselves. It was a truly remarkable night that we will remember for the rest of our lives!

Crystal of Distinct Occasions was an amazing wedding planner, who took our dream and made it a reality! She understood who we were and what we wanted. She took on the challenge of planning a "Destination Wedding" in the same province never blinking an eye! She ensured that she found vendors who understood us and our vision and also understood our unique situation. She was prompted in her responses to e-mailw and always made time for us when we were in Toronto (which was often).

There were a couple of organizational miscommunications with vendors etc. in the lead-up to the Big Day that could have been avoided, and would have boosted the overall rating but but she was always very fast to rectify any issue and smooth things over quickly, which was always appreciated.

We were also looking for some additional hand-holding and initial checklists even though we were only engaging her for the month-of package. We did a lot of the research and organizing on our own throughout, just to feel comfortable things were getting done. I felt like a lot of the project managing from her office came towards the middle/end when it was a bit late. But her timeline really helped all of our vendors to be on the same page and get it together, which was so helpful.

Either way, on the day of, it was really nice to let go and know and truly feel that Crystal and team had things under control. They were a great help on our actual wedding day in making it run smoothly. Nobody didn't notice any major things going wrong (except for the microphone going out during speeches and no planner in sight to help! Luckily we were a small group in a small room), which means that for the most part, she was doing her job!
