Barb was truly amazing. It's as if she can read your mind! I found that she really listened to me and got to know me making the event more personal. She's interested in the details and always puts a touch of class and "pretty" into everything. Thank you Barb for making a day that will forever be in our memories smooth, fun, relaxed and gorgeous!

Barb is an awesome wedding planner! We hired her for full coordination and our wedding was absolutely amazing thanks to her talent and vision. It was everything we wanted and that much more. She takes the stress off searching for vendors and sets up appointments and attends vendor meetings to help assist in the planning. She was so much fun to work with and made the whole experience enjoyable and far less stressful. I highly recommend Barb to anyone planning their wedding. Our wedding was within budget and ran extremely smooth. One of the main comments we had from many of our guests, was how thought out the wedding was, from decor and theme to the timeline. We could not be more pleased and thankful for her stellar work!

We hired Barb from French Kiss Events to be our day-of coordinator, and right away discovered how valuable her services were. She was fantastic, very responsive and available, and full of useful pointers. We wanted to do all of the planning and designing ourselves, but we were planning from out of town on quite a busy schedule. Barb was very flexible to our needs and was able to execute our vision perfectly. As my husband put it, she gave us exactly what we wanted even when we weren't sure of exactly what we wanted. On the wedding day, the entire wedding party agreed that she was excellent (along with her partner, Laura). Everything was on time and ran smoothly, and any time we needed anything she was right there. Very good at anticipating needs and filling them before they are issues, in a way that stays true to the wedding that the couple wants. The reception was decorated perfectly, all the guests were happy, and we didn't have to stress about anything at all. I would strongly recommend French Kiss Events for day-of coordination, full event planning, or whatever wedding help best suits the couple.

Barb from French Kiss Events did an incredible job helping us plan our dream wedding! We were able to look forward to this day stress free, because we knew we had a very talented and very professional wedding planner by our side.
From the very first meeting until the very end she made sure she perfectly understood what we had in mind, and was always able to accommodate our crazy work schedules.
She made sure our wedding day was perfect from start to finish, and my husband and I were able to celebrate with our friends and family without having to worry about a thing.

Without a doubt, our wedding was everything we had hoped it would be and then some because of Barb and the French Kiss Events team. I honestly cannot praise her enough for the work she did to ensure our day was a success!

From meetings months before, to countless emails and phone calls, to the rehearsal with our families & friends, to the execution of our perfect day... she handled everything with a care and attention to detail that is truly unmatched. When I first saw our ceremony & reception spaces after the set up was complete, I couldn't believe how she had transformed an already beautiful outdoor space into a magic oasis! She ensured our decor looked perfect, our music choices happened smoothly, our MC was on track, and that all our vendors performed seamlessly. This allowed us (and our loved ones!) to relax and savour every moment, knowing that Barb was on it.

I will forever be grateful for the time she put in to get to know us and our vision for our wedding, and for her tireless work to ensure it happened perfectly. Barb is a true professional and her passion for her work shines through in everything she does. Her clients will always be in good hands.

Thank you so much, Barb, from the bottom of our hearts! xo
