A few words from owner and principal planner, Jenna Smith:

After years of helping to plan special events for my friends, family members, and employers, I decided to turn my knack for event planning into a career, and launched Revel Events in 2009. I soon realized that weddings were my passion, and I now specialize in these highly personal, emotional, and fun-filled events. It is absolutely true that no two weddings are exactly alike, and that is what keeps my job exciting and challenging. In the space between my first meeting with new clients and our goodbye hugs at the end of the wedding day, I am privileged to be able to build friendships with amazing couples while taking the stress of wedding planning off their hands. It's an incredible job and I love it! Read less

Hiring Jenna for day-of coordination was easily one of the best decisions we made! We entrusted her with all the details of our day - she was organized, articulate, patient, and found ways to make even the most complex details come together.

We had some vendors who were at times challenging to get a hold of, and Jenna was able to reign them all in with no issues. We presented Jenna with a fairly long list of tasks with specific instructions and she executed them all without a problem (as far as we know!).

In the days leading up to the wedding, we peppered Jenna with changes and new tasks to the schedule she had already built. Jenna handled this wonderfully, reconfirming with our vendors and updating our timelines as requested. Not only that, Jenna would prompt us and ask the right questions (ones we didn't even think of) to help us ensure we were making all the right decisions.

Our wedding was no small task, with 250 guests and a ballroom flip under an hour and a half. Jenna worked with the hotel to handle all of this seamlessly. Jenna accompanied us to our final meeting with the venue, and it was priceless having her there - it was a relief (and impressive) to watch her manage all the final details. I basically had to sit there and not, while Jenna literally took all the stress off our shoulders so that we could actually enjoy those last few days!

Perhaps one of Jenna's strongest skills, the other being highly organized, was her personable and kind demeanor. She won over all of us, including my parents who continue to rave about Jenna to this day. Thank you Jenna!

Jenna was fantastic and it's so true that you get much more than just "day-of" coordination. She was always prompt to reply to my many emails and offer vendor recommendations and suggestions when I wasn't sure what I wanted. She was always patient and flexible with last minute changes and requests.

It was so nice to be able to just relax and entertain our friends and out of town guests in the days leading up to the wedding, knowing that Jenna was on it, confirming with Vendors and creating a detailed itinerary. The day of the wedding, I could rest easy knowing she was setting up the ceremony and reception spaces perfectly and throughout the day she ensured everything ran smoothly.

Apparently our whole floral arch for the ceremony toppled over in the wind during set up and Jenna dealt with this without issue. I was none the wiser until the next day! Which is exactly what you want as the bride! I had enough nerves to deal with as is, I don't know what I would have done without Jenna! She was knowledgeable, professional and delivered - for a very reasonable rate!

How amazing is Jenna of Revel Events? She is so amazing that I wish I could give her ten stars out of five. She is so amazing that I created a Wedding Wire account JUST to give her a review!

I cannot say enough good things about Jenna. My husband and I hired her for full wedding coordination, and she delivered! I didn't know wedding planning could be a relaxing, fun experience, but it really was. Jenna was very respectful of our budget and worked hard to suggest quality vendors that were within our price range. She kept us on schedule. I never had to worry because I knew if I should be working on something, Jenna would tell me. My preferred method of communication was by email, and Jenna was very responsive to anything big or small. She even worked during her honeymoon!

I joke that Jenna is a mind-reader, and I'm still a little suspicious! She matched us with vendors that meshed with our personalities and could see our vision clearly. We ended up with our wedding dream team. Even my husband, who is very picky, went with the very first DJ Jenna suggested. She hit the nail on the head every time!

As for cost, she is worth every penny if for nothing but the peace of mind she provides. However, Jenna did save us a lot of money by scouting out vendors within our budget. She also had great suggestions when we were planning the menu and open bar to ensure we wouldn't go over budget. Her expertise in what is necessary and what isn't was so incredibly helpful.

On the wedding day, I was able to focus 100% on having fun and getting married. Our wedding was an absolute blast, and our guests are still talking about it. I think this is proof of Jenna's talent.

I will recommend Jenna to everyone I know! She's the best of the best!

We hired Revel Events for partial planning of our February wedding and we couldn't have been happier with Jenna. She showed up early, stayed late, and took care of all the details while we sat back & reveled in the joy of our wedding! We planned our entire Vancouver BC wedding while we were living in the USA. We felt involved and hands-on every step of the way. We had a venue in mind, but needed a lot of help with vendor recommendations for everything else. We chose Jenna because she was generous with her time and always gave us plenty of good vendor recommendations. I knew that she would be the right person "on the ground" for us in Vancouver. I interviewed at least 5 event planners before selecting Jenna, and I found that many planners are stingy and charge extra fees for "vendor research." Revel does it differently - Jenna recommended vendors she thought we might be interested in, and then we did our own vendor research and picked the vendor that suited us the best. Sometimes we found a vendor on our own, but Jenna was always extremely helpful in letting us know what to look out for. Jenna is very highly regarded and well-known in the industry. Initially our preferred florist told us that they would be too busy to take on our wedding, but when they found out we were Jenna's clients they made an exception! Jenna is an excellent communicator. She knows exactly how to talk to each person involved, from the strung-out bride to the most difficult vendor, to get the best results. She empowered us to make good decisions that we would be happy with, and we never once felt pressured to go along with something we didn't want. I changed my mind a LOT - but Jenna always listened & gave us time think about what we wanted. Thanks Jenna for always being calm, organized & professional, and for making all kinds of magic happen on our wedding day!

The groom agrees & says "Revel Events was worth every penny."

When we first got engaged, one of my bridesmaids referred me to Jenna at Revelevents. A wedding coordinator? Really? I thought: "I'm a capable, organized person - I don't need a wedding coordinator." Then I thought - you know, would be nice if on the day of the wedding, the hiccups were someone else's problems to solve not mine. We hired Jenna as a partial coordinator. Jenna sat back and let us do a lot of planning on our own leading up - she would check in periodically to make sure things were on their way. In her own professional and quiet, courteous way, she would inquire about things that she hadn't seen me tick off my list and offered very helpful suggestions about how to move them along. Then, about 3 weeks before the wedding, when we really, really needed it, and didn't even know it, Jenna became the most important, trusted and helpful resource to us. She managed things behind the scenes that we never even knew were issues until after she had solved them. She saw challenges coming, and handled them for us.. She was there for us both - groom and bride - giving us her full attention about 10 days before the wedding. We felt we had a resource, a friend, a sounding board and an unbelievable support. We had a pretty detailed wedding with a lot of moving parts - Jenna managed it all in stride - she was amazing. We know without hesitation that we wouldn't have made it through as well as we did without Jenna. She is worth her weight in gold. Take her advice, follow her suggestions, use her trusted vendors - the woman knows what she is doing. She will be worth every penny you could imagine and more. I am the first to admit - I am absolutely not the easiest person in the world to deal with when I am stressed and I also have very high expectations of people - Jenna met all of ours and more and we cannot be more grateful to her for everything she did for us to make our wedding the most spectacular day ever. We are so thankful we hired Jenna - you will be too.

As an avid planner and type A personality myself, it was extremely important to me to find the right person, to hand the reins to on my wedding day for day of coordination. I met with various well known planners in Vancouver, but in the end I was most confident with, and found the strongest connection with Jenna.

Working with Jenna leading up to the wedding was Fab. She's super responsive and kept me on track with all planning details. On the wedding day, everything was great. No hick-ups, at least that I know of. Which is exactly how it should be! Jenna took care of everything - and even chased (discreetly) the flower girls/ring bearer when they set off in the wrong direction (ie, not down the aisle). As the wedding continued into party mode Jenna was still doing her thing, and even hung around until we ourselves were ready to go, which we were not expecting. Jenna had all our gifts collected and packed into our vehicle ready and waiting for us to leave. She then tucked us into the car, and sent us off for the night! This was amazing. She really was all over everything.

I would highly recommend Jenna. I know there are other big name planners in town, but the value Jenna provides is far superior. High quality, and high value.

We hired Jenna for Day of Coordination for our wedding, and were extremely happy with her service. During the entire process she was available to answer any questions and give suggestions for numerous planning issues. She was very quick and professional in her replies and gave some great advise, including some tricky wedding etiquette questions. She is also extremely friendly, down to earth and a pleasure to deal with.

Starting about a month before the wedding she went to work creating a schedule, contacting all of our vendors and making final arrangements. She was more than happy to accommodate any of our request or ideas, and had great suggestions for the many items we hadn’t thought of. On the day of, she was amazing throughout! We were able fully enjoy the day knowing she was taking care of all the details and any problems that arose in the background. If there were any issues she dealt with them before I was aware of them, and the day appeared to go perfectly in my eyes. She picked up our flowers, took care of all the décor set up at two venues, ran the music we put together, helped out the MC and kept the day on schedule (just to name a few). My parents were also extremely impressed with her attention to detail and professionalism, and were happy to be able to relax and enjoy the day as well. She is very discreet and keeps to the background, but is always around if you need anything. I can’t imagine anyone more pleasant and calm to deal with on your wedding day. We would recommend Jenna to any couples who want to be able to enjoy their wedding day stress free!
