Everything was fantastic except my hair stylist. She yawned the whole time. She didn't seem interested in doing hair. I wanted wispy peices by face/ ears but she said she couldn't do it. Hair was falling out by the time I got back to room. Hair stylist for both sisters was awesome.

Thanks so much for sharing your feedback with us! We work really hard to connect with vendors that have the same level of professionalism as we pride ourselves on. We're really sorry to hear you weren't happy with your hairstylist, and we'll be in touch with that vendor to discuss how we can improve! Best wishes!

I started out planning my wedding by myself, with some loving help from my wonderful fiance. I realized pretty quickly that, though I loved doing the DIY projects and planning the overall feel of the day, I would need help organizing all the vendors and getting everything done the day of. I found Cherry Tree online and hired them after seeing their awesome portfolio. Callandra and Liz were amazing, more than worth the money we spent on the planning services. They first helped me organize vendors and made me feel confident that I was making good decisions, as well as recommending different options and helping me make better choices (and save money!). Their experience made me feel like our wedding was in the best hands, and the wedding day proved that and then some. I was so happy that no one in my family/friends had to lift a finger the day of our wedding, and blown away when I showed up at the venue to see how well everything had come together. When we had to move the ceremony inside at the last minute I was a bit upset, but walking down the aisle all those thoughts faded away when I saw how beautiful they had decorated the new indoor location. They made sure everything ran smoothly, coordinating with the DJs, our MCs, and all the other vendors. My parents were equally impressed when they showed up the next day to find all of our decor items ready to be taken home.

Our wedding day was the best day I could have imagined, and I felt not one ounce of stress the whole time, in thanks to Liz and Callandra and the rest of the Cherry Tree team. If you are getting married in the rockies, do yourself a favour and hire these wonderful women! You will not regret it.

Callandra at Cherry Tree Occasions was a joy to work with! We can not begin to express how incredible our wedding day was, and we owe it all to Callandra. I love that she asked us lots of questions about our lives before we started making decisions. I felt like we were old friends before the end of our first meeting, and it gave us more comfort that our wedding planner truly cared about who we were and what our dream was for our big day. Callandras approach to planning a wedding made it easy for us to feel comfortable making decisions. We also loved that she offered us vendors across the spectrum. We liked having a florist that worked out of their home and was a small local company, and while other might prefer to have a huge distributor handle their flowers- Callandra offered us that choice which we truly valued.

Its been 3 weeks since our wedding and we're still getting comments from our friends that it was the 'best wedding' they have ever been to. The decor, the execution of the day, the details that many folks miss, it was all spot on with Callandra and her team. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding day. I would recommend Cherry Tree Occasions to anyone who wants to translate their dream wedding day into a stress free reality! These guys are real pros :)

We can not rave enough about Callandra and Cherry Tree Occasions! Callandra not only helped us plan our wedding ceremony, but helped us organize an entire weekend of activities for our guests, all while being very conscious of our budget. We wanted something that was very unique and memorable for our guests; Callandra made that all come together in a tasteful, classy, unique-but-not-weird way! She is such a pleasure to work with and talk to that the whole process turned out to be very fun and not at all stressful. What I appreciated the most was that Callandra never lost sight of the fact that this was about us starting our marriage and life together and not simply about hosting a wedding. That can easily be overshadowed in the details of wedding planning; I really appreciated that she always brought us back to what really mattered and our core values. That really helped make the whole process fun and enjoyable. I would do the whole thing over again just to have a chance to catch up with her every few weeks!!! (and perhaps even more telling is that I'm certain that my husband--a total skeptic at first---would say the same thing!!)

Callandra consistently went above and beyond our expectations in planning and on the day of. We feel incredibly lucky to have stumbled upon her services and our wedding day would not have been as smooth as it was without the expert planning, forethought, and execution by the Cherry Tree team.

We would definitely recommend Cherry Tree Occasions.

Callandra was literally invaluable to my wedding. Not sure what I would have done without her. She took care of florals, decor, stationary, set up and tear down SEAMLESSLY.

More than that, she was professional with all the vendors, easy to get a hold of, gave valuable advice and yet listened to my vision for the day and "got it' completely. Everyone talked about how our wedding was so "us"! Even when I would change my mind on something small and insignificant, she was super accommodating and never made me feel like my changes were a burden.


Thank you Callandra!

The best advice I could give to any bride in making her dream wedding come true would be to hire Callandra from Cherry Tree Occassions!! You will have no regrets and it will be the best thing you can do for your big day, for you, for your future husband, and for your sanity! She helped us make our vision come true and was always there when we needed her.
We knew what we wanted, but had no idea where to start or who to call. All Callandra's recommendations were perfect for us! She worked very hard to make sure our day was exactly as we had envisioned it - and it was all absolutely perfect! Thank you so much!!"

I can not recommend Callandra strongly enough!

Working with me and my husband, spread around the world, with family crisis occurring a week before the wedding, Callandra went above and beyond time and time again to create a spectacular morning wedding for us.

She organised us, ensuring we met all dates for vendors, created a beautiful setting for the reception and even covered the venue co-ordinator's responsibility in sourcing hard to find food for the reception.
So many reasons, so little space, to list every thing Callandra did for us.

All I can say is engaging her to help with our wedding was the best decision we made.

Wow, where do I start! Well this time last year Mike and I starting planning our wedding. I guess I should say, my mom and I, as Mike didn’t really plan much. He trusted me and knew I wouldn’t do anything crazy. We knew we wanted to get married in the mountains as we love them and spend as much time there as possible. It was going to be a 3 day event and we knew a wedding planner would make bringing it all together that much easier. That is when Callandra came into the picture. We actually had meetings with a few wedding planners from the Banff/Canmore are. Our meeting with Callandra was the first, and I knew instantly, that she was the one. And that is how it all began.

Callandra was phenomenal! She is fun, enthusiastic, professional, and knows her stuff! We wanted a unique wedding with simple elegance. We had an idea of what we wanted and Callandra helped us bring it all together. Her advice and suggestions were fantastic and having someone there for you to do all of the calling and organizing is wonderful. It is like having your own personal wedding secretary. Callandra would listen to my ideas and she would search it out for me. Over the course of the planning, I had a Bridezilla moment and Callandra made sure it all worked out in the end.

Callandra worked very hard to make our wedding everything we wanted it to be. She and her team organized everything, so we could sit back, relax, and enjoy our special weekend. They made sure everything ran smoothly from Friday evening until Sunday afternoon. Just to name a few, they put together the guest goodie bags and placed them each room, made sure the fun casino and BBQ went without a hitch, set up the ceremony space, converted the ceremony space to a cocktail reception (very quickly), put together the reception space and the wedding favours, decorated our room with “Mr. & Mrs.” Stuff, organized brunch for the following day, and a late afternoon sleigh ride with hot chocolate for the remaining guests. It was all so amazing! It was like going away on a mini ski holiday and having a wedding in the middle.

Callandra was an integral part of me feeling completely stress-free and happy during our “wedding weekend.” We have had so many of our guests comment on how they had never been to such a fun wedding, and they could see the bride and groom having a wonderful time.

Callandra, we would like to thank you in the most heartfelt of ways. You and your team went above and beyond. You did such a wonderful job. Thank you for making the entire weekend so perfect. No detail went unnoticed and you gave us a chance to really enjoy the moments of the day. Every bride should have a wedding planner like you as part of their wedding day!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,
Lindy and Mike

Callandra was a valuable resource to have while planning our wedding from a distance. She is a local and has worked with most of the vendors numerous times & knows them personally which gives her a step above the rest. Her experience in Banff put as at ease when leaving our vendor details with her.

Her professionalism and attention to detail was noticed by many of our family & friends. I can't say enough about how stress free our wedding day was because of Cherry Tree Occasions.

Hiring Callandra was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. She tailored a package for us so that she was able to help us with both month-of coordination as well as last minute design and decor decisions. Very soon after we hired Callandra we realized we should have brought her on a lot sooner!

Callandra's design and decor ideas were awesome, and we so appreciated that she was very willing to make any of our wishes happen, even if it took even more coordination on her end. On the day of our wedding, Callandra and her team did a fabulous job. We didn't have a care in the world that day and that was all because of her. She was also unbelievably calm and level headed yet decisive when it came to the unplanned portions of the day.

We feel so lucky to have worked with Callandra on the most amazing day of our lives. She is organized, passionate, level-headed, knowledgeable and stylish. We really can't think of anything else that one would want in a wedding planner!

Is it weird that we think it would be great if our wedding planner came to visit us?

What made our planning experience with Callandra so successful was her interest in understanding us as people (two consultants who spend too much time on planes with excel spreadsheets) and getting to know our quirks (a non-bride bride who didn’t know the difference between ‘pintuck’ and ‘ranunculus’), and then embracing them to help us create a wedding event that was uniquely "us" (… maple bacon apple fritters).

By the end of our wedding adventure we really thought of her as a guest at our wedding - a very helpful, highly trusted, sober guest who wore a headset, always seemed to know what should happen next and was prepared for all things unexpected (e.g. she was the only guest with a red wine removal kit immediately handy for Andrea's dress after a boisterous Best Man hug...). Realistically, anyone who manages to deal with this spectrum of ‘special requests’ – from orchestrating the gutting of a hotel bathroom to personally packing 100+ Welcome Packs – deserves a long hug and a bonus.

Because she invests herself into a relationship with her clients, she was able to take barely formed wild baby ideas of ours, feed them a steady diet of enthusiasm and pragmatism and local knowledge, and grow them into fully functioning, wonderful and practical adult ideas we could all be proud of and love! (Champagne and beer ‘before’ the Ceremony?! Brilliant.)
The result: a wonderful day, a litany of guest compliments, and a standing invitation to get together for bubbly beverages... Thanks Callandra!

Andrea and Jason

P.S.: You should hire her! Seriously.

When Mark and I first got engaged we had no idea where to start, Mark thought it would be best to obtain a wedding planner, because we both just has so much going on in our lives! We found Callandra, and immediately the first time we met her, we both knew that we had gotten lucky. Throughout our year of planning with Callandra, she always went above and beyond for us taking her duties to the next level and at times taking on the roll of psychologist and counsellor! Mark and I always when telling others about Callandra used the phrase “she loves love” Because she truly does. Callandra (who was always very busy with other weddings) though you wouldn’t know it, always made our wedding and us as a couple feel like we were the most important clients and that our day was the most important day to ever exist. Callandra set up all our vendors, and introduced us to some fabulous people who also helped to make our day amazing (Julie Williams’s photography and Artistry flowers). Mark and I didn’t have to worry about a single thing on our wedding day, Callandra had it all covered. We had some idea of what to expect when we walked into our ceremony space and reception space, but on our wedding day when we walked into both, we just couldn’t believe the work she put in and the amount of beauty that she put into our wedding decor and ambiance.

Callandra was always right there for us, from steaming my dress the morning of the wedding, having a brand new garter on hand when I called her in a panic because I had forgotten mine, to running back to the hotel to grab Marks box of Tums! Now that our wedding is over, we are actually sad that our time with Callandra has come to an end. We actually miss her sometimes. Not only is she organized, knowledgeable and supportive, but she is also a friend and truly no one could have made our day as amazing as she did. Cherry Tree Occasions sets the bar as high as it can go, we would recommend Callandra and her staff to all who will listen. Like we said Callandra Loves love and that in itself made our day the best day of our lives!

Lots of love,

Holly and Mark

When we got engaged and started planning our wedding, we dreamt of a fun, memorable and stress-free event. This might not seem like much of a dream, but when hundreds of details are expected to magically come together on the most important day of your life, great memories without stress can seem like a pretty tall order. Our wedding was on July 3 at the Rimrock Resort Hotel in Banff and it was a spectacular event!!! It was a day of fun, romance, love and happiness. Callandra and Cherry Tree Occasions saw us through all our important moments; from the rehearsal to the dance… taking care of all the essential details that we spent months planning.

Callandra’s knowledge of the small details helped us make our dream a reality. She helped us to think of the things that needed thinking, kept us on track as our special day approached, and guided everyone involved through the logistics of our special day. Callandra’s confidence and professionalism allowed us to enjoy our wedding day with our family and friends without stress or worry. We would recommend Cherry Tree Occasions without hesitation! Callandra, we can’t thank you enough... it was a pleasure working with a true romantic!

With love and appreciation,

Chantal & Kent

Callandra and her team at Cherry Tree were awesome! From the planning stages up till the day of the wedding my husband & I felt everything was fully looked after! Callandra was also very helpful with any questions that we had and provided some very helpful information with respect to all things wedding. I liked that Cherry Tree Occasions had a variety of wedding packages that were suited to a bride and groom's needs. I would highly recommend Cherry Tree to anyone who is looking at having their wedding in the mountains!

Having Callandra plan our wedding was a gift, in more ways than one! Since Michael and I are both medical residents living in Florida it was impossible to come home to Alberta and be physically involved in the planning process. Dear friends of ours thought the perfect wedding gift would be to hire a wedding planner for us, thus our partnership with Callandra began! And boy were they right! What an enormous relief it was to have someone so knowledgeable and creative helping us with all the decisions that have to be made when planning a wedding. It was especially great having someone to keep us on a schedule, reminding me of what tasks needed to be taken care of, when payments were due, when to send out invitations, etc. As a busy resident I could never have kept track of all that on my own! Callandra was so organized and always called me on schedule for our twice monthly meetings, plus she was always available for any additional calls or emails when other questions or ideas popped into my head. Even though I was so far away while planning I always felt like I was involved in the process, which I liked. We would brainstorm ideas and send photos back and forth, then Callandra would do the leg work and I could make the ultimate decision based on the proposals she gave to me. I loved still feeling like the wedding would be as we imagined it, even though we wouldn't even arrive in Canmore until days before the wedding! We finally got to meet with Callandra just a few days before the big event, and she was always there to attend meetings at the venue, get decor delivered, and solve any last minute problems. It was a relatively calm and really enjoyable run up to the wedding day itself, and without her I can only imagine how stressed out we would have been! Having Callandra there the day of the wedding was a godsend, she made everything run smoothly behind the scenes so Michael and I could just relax and enjoy our day and take in all the happiness. And even though we hadn't been present to choose flowers or linens or the cake, everything turned out even more beautiful than we'd pictured it! Callandra helped out in so many ways, some of which I didn't even find out about until after the wedding, such as returning some of the rentals herself to save us the delivery charges... how wonderfully kind that as! After the wedding my mum said that if our friends hadn't hired Callandra as our wedding gift she would have hired her herself as it took away so much stress normally associated with wedding planning and allowed us to relax and focus on what was most important about the day... the commitment we made to each other!

Callandra was very easy to work with, was honest, professional, fun; she had many ideas and options for us to consider. What I appreciated most was her ability to keep my fiance and I organized, making sure our vendors had legitimate contracts in place, and sending us little email reminders when we needed to make some choices, or make payments on time. Callandra did all sorts of things on our wedding day that made our day so special, and stress-free! We really didn't have to worry about anything except the weather. I would recommend Cherry Tree Occasions as an excellent wedding planning service.

Callandra and her team at Cherry Tree Occasions were an absolute delight to work with!! It is said that when crisis hits, people's true colours shine through. That saying could not have rung more true in our case!! Our wedding happened to fall just days after the devastating floods in Southern Alberta. Our original wedding was scheduled for June 22 in Canmore, Alberta. We spent an entire year planning our wedding with Callandra, only to find out 2 days before the wedding we could not get to Canmore and our wedding would have to be cancelled. We basically had to plan an entire wedding, from scratch, in another city.

Callandra immediately sprung into action and found us another venue in Calgary, all new vendors (including 2 other event planners in Calgary who agreed to help), organize our DJ, officiant, florist, and all while her and her family were evacuated from their own home in Canmore! She was absolutely incredible! Despite facing her own problems, she still made our wedding a priority and worked around the clock to make it happen. She basically not only planned an entire wedding over the course of the year, but planned a second wedding for us in less than a day!

Callandra is someone who does a great job focusing on all the details, but at the same time, never loses sight of the big picture. She is grounded and practical - which kept us focused and organized. At the same time, she is attuned to every small detail, taking the stress off of you. She is extremely knowledgeable and brought ideas to the table that I never would have thought of! I cannot recommend Cherry Tree Occasions highly enough!!
