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

Jenna was an incredible Wedding Planner and we were very happy with her service. She was great at managing the chaos of the day while remaining calm, cool and collected the entire time. She was very professional and also firm when she needed to be to organize a lot of different people at once. I would highly recommend her.

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.

Our wedding planner, Jenna kept us sane throughout this process, and helped us turn our dream wedding into a reality. It is through her that we found our wonderful photographer Amber Hughes and the other vendors that made the day come together so well. We cannot thank her enough.

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!

From the first time we met with Jenna, her warmth and calmness shone through. Jenna's contribution to the overall success of our wedding is immeasurable! She brought warmth and a special touch to every aspect of our wedding. She is amazing. Her supplier contacts have the same philosophy and feeling, from the florist to the DJ. Our wedding was a huge success because of Jenna, we had positive compliments from every one of our guests. She gave us peace of mind so that we could enjoy our special day. It is with confidence that we highly recommend Jenna and we would be happy to share our experience with you.

I'm so glad that we decided to get a wedding planner for the day of our wedding. Jenna was amazing to deal with. She was prompt in her replies to my millions of emails, very helpful, fun and knowledgeable. On the day of the wedding she was very professional and made sure that even through the many bumps in our schedule everything ran smoothly. My entire family has commented on what a great job she did that day and I would recommend any bride to at least get a wedding planner for the day of if not the entire planning process. Especially if it is Jenna.

Jenna was by the far the best money we spent on our wedding. I chose her because she had planned a wedding for couple in Vancouver while they were living in New York, so I knew that she would be able to help us plan our wedding while we were in the U.K. She helped us narrow down choices by making short lists of photographers and DJs for us to meet. This was immensely helpful since we only had about a week in Vancouver to meet with all of the vendors. She also suggested the venue, which is one I would not have known about otherwise, and was so helpful on the day in making sure everything ran smoothly and I did not have to worry about anything. Jenna also thought of additional wedding details, such as making sure all of the gift cards with money in them were kept safe. I really cannot say enough good things about Jenna and the help she provided for our wedding.

Jenna of Revel Events is an absolutely amazing wedding planner.
She answered all my questions and got back to me quickly when I emailed her. She eased my anxieties that I was having about details and made sure we were getting what we wanted. She kept me on track with my timeline. She was professional with me, my family and all my vendors. She expertly coordinated with the vendors so that everyone knew their responsibilities.
Day of wedding was a breeze because she was there to make sure everything went smoothly from my perspective. I honestly don't think the wedding would've come together without her! :)

Jenna is the best! Our wedding was amazing and I would recommend her in a heartbeat. We were able to enjoy the day and just take it all in with no stress because we trusted her. Jenna was our day-of-coordinator (but she does so much more that just help on the day-of). The day went by perfectly because Jenna was there every step of the way from carefully fluffing my dress and veil right before I walked down the aisle to all the details at the reception which took my breath away. Jenna is awesome and the 5/5 rating is truly deserved.

Quality of Service: Our wedding was no small task with over 200 guests, different locations for the ceremony and reception, a lot of decor and tons of small details but Jenna made sure our vision came together perfectly because she cared as if it were her own. Her day-of-coordination service is really so much more than just the day-of. She was so helpful the whole month ("crunch time") before the wedding including great advice each time I had a question, walkthroughs with our vendors, detailed schedules, directing the ceremony rehearsal and so much more. She also did other behind the scenes things such as confirming vendors directly so that I could focus on all the fun leading up to the wedding.

Responsiveness: I emailed Jenna quite often and usually from a different time zone (we got married in Vancouver but were planning from Toronto). She always responded quickly. One thing I really appreciated was that even if I emailed her when she was busy preparing for another wedding, she would see if there was anything that needed urgent reply and then let me know when she would reply with a detailed response to ensure that she could give me her full attention. On the other hand, I also appreciate that she's giving her other bride the full attention the few days leading up to her wedding too.

Professionalism: Jenna’s calm, cool and collected yet warm and enthusiastic and never without a smile. She was always very organized and came prepared for all meetings. Our other vendors had nothing but positive reviews.

Value & Flexibility: Jenna’s day-of-coordination package really is a fantastic value in itself and at our first meeting she let me know that I had the flexibility to add more hours to her basic package at a later time once we both had a clearer picture of how the day would unfold, which I thought was very fair and considerate. I have and would recommend Jenna to any of my family and friends getting married soon.

Jenna was amazing to work with! Her expertise, creativity, and exceptional organizational skills were essential in planning our beautiful, stress-free wedding. With her wonderful sense of style and industry knowledge, she was able to recommend vendors that were an excellent fit with our tastes and budget. Thanks to her planning and management of the day, we were able to focus on each other and really enjoy the party — I can't imagine how we would have done it without her!

I have told my friends, I have told my family, and now I'm telling you: Jenna will make your wedding day a breeze. Having hired her for "day-of" coordination, I had expected a few emails and phone calls and a hand on the big day; Jenna blew my expectations out of the water! Not only did she prompt me with helpful questions leading up to the big day, but she answered all of my questions with thoughtful suggestions. Also - and some of you may empathize with this more than others - she helped deal with my mother's questions with the utmost grace and professionalism. If there were any hiccups on our wedding day, I did not notice; either way, I have Jenna to thank :)

We were very happy with service provided by Revel Events for our wedding. We wanted to have a wedding where everyone could feel at ease and enjoy themselves.

Throughtout the preparation process, Jenna was responsive, professional, and considerate. Her creativity and sensitivity helped us a lot when we had to come up with solutions for different issues associated with multi-cultural wedding.

We used all the vendors that Jenna recommended, and everything was a great success.

We strongly recommend Revel Events to anyone who is looking for a wedding planner who will put you at ease and let you focus on having fun with people you love during your special day. Since the event we have had many guests tell us that our wedding was one of the most fun weddings they had ever been to.

To call Jenna an immaculate professional is an understatement. She was accessible, massively knowledgable, calming, detail oriented, helpful and she has a fantastic eye for detail. My husband and I could not be happier with the way our special day played out - and Jenna really deserves all the credit. I would recommend her to any bride-to-be: she took the stress of making sure all the (thousands) of details played out as envisioned and really let us enjoy our celebration.

Jenna was a dream to work with! We live in Toronto and she was helping us plan our wedding in our home town Vancouver. Despite the distance it was as if we lived in the same city when it came to planning our big day. She provided most of our vendors and they were all amazing to work with. We couldn't imagine enjoying our day without her help! Thanks Jenna for all your help!

I enjoyed every moment of my wedding day. It was the best day + night of my entire life, and it was only because Revel Events took care of absolutely every detail that I was able to enjoy our day without a worry in the world. Revel Events (Jenna) was presented with many challenges, including but not limited to last-minute changes, bossy family members, complicated schedules, multiple vendors, and a billion mason jars… and somehow she took care of all of it. Her incredible attention to detail did not allow one nuance to slip through the cracks, and as a result the wedding ran smoothly. Every vendor knew their role and what needed to be done. But still, everytime I ran in to Jenna she was calm as a cucumber, taking care of everything with a smile.

Jenna turned my vision in to a reality. I cannot thank her enough for her direction, dedication, and enthusiasm. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Revel Events, and I will definitely hire them for my second wedding (kidding!). But seriously, I would absolutely recommend Revel Events to any couple looking for a planner who can truly take on their vision as if it’s her own, and make it a reality.

Please feel free to contact me with any direct questions regarding Jenna/Revel Event's services. I can be reached at shauna (dot) nep (at) gmail.com (dot) com. :)

How anyone could ever plan anything,especially a wedding without Jenna is beyond me. She is amazing.
I told her my vision for the wedding and she carried it out perfectly. She helped source amazing vendors which I wouldn't have known about. She was super organized, quick to reply and kept me focused and on track.
The kicker, I was pregnant, hormonal and exhausted. Jenna answered my neurotic text messages, emails and phone calls:messages timely. She has a way about her to calm, reassure and support you through one of the most important times in your life. She oversaw all details leading up to and day of.
My suggestion is to meet her in person, have a coffee and chat and you will quickly realize she is the best in the business. Book her now you will be so grateful!
