I am stunned and shocked at the negative review that Smitten Events received. Jordan and her team helped with the planning of the wedding and it was perfect. We, and all our guests, had a fabulous time. As soon as we met I knew that we were in good hands and felt totally at ease. Jordan has patience, grace, good judgement and incredible planning. She made sure the wedding would run smoothly and it did. There was absolutely nothing left for us to worry about.
Also, her recommend vendors were truly a pleasure to work with.
Jordan and Smitten Events are truly amazing!

Hiring Smitten Events ended up being a hugely devastating mistake. I feel extremely unfortunate to seemingly be the only person whose wedding they royally screwed up. Their decor girl made countless errors and failed to provide several items. Everything leading up to the event seemed perfect, but when it came down to it Devon and Robyn were not even close to equipped to handle our wedding and almost every single promise they made to us was not delivered on. Not to mention how taken advantage of we felt after paying them $15,000 only to realize we could have done a far better job ourselves. Hiring Smitten Events is my single biggest regret when it comes to looking back on my wedding day.

I am shocked to see the negative review below as we hired Smitten Events to plan our full (out of town) wedding and both Devon and Robyn were amazing! They carried out our vision in fine detail and offered suggestions and advice when needed to make it the beautiful day we had imagined. The detailed timeline and the effort these girls put in is amazing and it leaves us brides with nothing to worry about so we can enjoy our morning getting ready doing the fun stuff with no pressure or concerns. I was even impressed how Robyn stopped in several times to see how I was doing and to let me know everything was on schedule. Thank you both so much for making our wedding weekend amazing! We wouldn't have changed a thing and cannot thank you enough! We would definitely recommend Smitten Events for wedding planning and will use them again in the future for other events. Thank you ladies!

We hired Smitten for the whole package – wedding coordination and décor. Throughout the planning process, the girls were very friendly – but also not very on the ball. They were slow to answer emails, and I ended up doing most of the planning myself. The a la carte system turned out to be more an annoyance than a benefit – every time I asked for help or advice, I was charged for a new service. I understand they are running a business and deserve to be compensated, but to me at least, some of the charges felt like they should have been covered under the general contract.

And then there was the wedding. The most stressful part of my day, by far, was Smitten. I did not hear from my coordinator the entire day, seeing her only for a few brief moments before the ceremony, and then at the reception. I was stressed the whole morning trying to coordinate photographers and limos and guest transportation.

At the reception, myself, my mother, and the venue staff spent much of the night rushing around, trying to coordinate the MC, the first dance, and keep the schedule running smoothly. My coordinator was not to be seen for most of the night.

Even though I paid extra for the décor team, the décor itself was only finished just as we arrived at the reception hall – and only because the venue’s staff offered their help. There were also furniture miscalculations that meant last minute rental costs – 2 days before the wedding. After the wedding, even though I provided a list of décor I would like returned to me, the majority of it was “lost,” including personal items from home. This was blamed on the venue.

I realize this review sounds terrible, but to be honest, my experience was. I am frustrated I paid Smitten so much and received so little in return.

Hi! I, too am completely shocked by the one negative review of Smitten Events below. Clearly, it must be a mistake, that's really the only explanation! My now-husband and I booked Devon from Smitten, two months prior to our wedding in July 2014 for her day of service. Originally, I had planned not to have a planner for the wedding as our venue provided for some guidance for the day of. However, the venue underwent a major change of ownership and the shift of management was effecting the organization and promptness of reply I was receiving. I relied on two other friends who had worked with Devon with spectacular results and was amazed that she was still available (having just had an unexpected wedding cancellation for my date). Devon was wonderful. Everything you want out of a potential friend, warm, friendly, bubbly, energetic and everything you want out of a wedding planner, organized, thoughtful, accommodating and willing to go the extra mile. From the moment I began working with her she took over all communication with all my vendors and established a detailed timeline for that day. Even with the threat of rain on my wedding day, she was the voice of reason and positivism and was always there to talk and bounce ideas off of. The day of the wedding, she and her assistant made sure everything ran smoothly and looked the way I expected. I should say I think I was a fairly laid-back bride, and Devon was a great complement to this, but it's clear to me she could work with a multitude of personality types. Spending the kind of money we did on this day, Smitten Events was great insurance to ensure that all brides and grooms enjoy the day they have worked so hard to plan. Thank you to you Devon, and I look forward to working with you in the future on more events I plan to throw :). Continued success always.

For anyone looking for a Wedding Planner or just a Day of Coordinator, I highly recommend Smitten Events (Devon Dunn). Devon helped me turn my vision into a reality that was flawless and stunning. We worked together to create a one of a kind Chuppah from a birch tree and everything about the chuppah that I requested was done better than I expected.
Devon also worked along side the Venue and additional vendors to make our wedding out of this world. Devon you truly are amazing and I Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being there with me to make our wedding better. Xoxo

I had the pleasure of having Jordan as my Day-Of Coordinator. Jordan was absolutely amazing, and my wedding ran so smooth, thanks to Jordan and her assistant. Jordan was very helpful before the wedding, providing me with ideas and suggestions, and ensuring that I had everything under control. The day of the wedding, Jordan made sure everything ran very smooth, helped me out with decor, ensured everyone knew what they were doing and knew where they needed to be, she even came over to my hotel room to pick some last minute things up. Overall, I would definitely recommend Jordan and her team for wedding planning and day-of-coordinator services!!!

Robyn from Fairty Godmother weddings helped me plan my dream wedding from Toronto. We had never met in person, nor had I seen the venue we chose until two days before the wedding.
I couldn't have pulled off such a gala event without her help.
She was always in touch with me when I needed her, she made excellent suggestions, she reassured me so much prior to and during the wedding and she basically took care of all of the details.
If you are planning a wedding in Vancouver, you NEED the services of this excellent company.

We got married September 14th and hired Devon to coordinate the day of planning. Hiring Devon was the best decision I had made during the wedding process. I was able to relax and enjoy the day with my friends and family as opposed to running around organizing vendors or having a family member do it. All of my guests had a fabulous time and said how professional and friendly Devon and her assistant were. I would recommend fairy godmother weddings to any friends and family and for the next family wedding we will definitly be calling her.

It was nice to work with someone who still made me feel like my day was important and special even though our wedding was on the smaller side and not a big expensive affair. Devon had wonderful attention to detail and managed to drastically reduce my stress level! My wedding went beautifully, everything was set up exactly the way I wanted it to be, and even with a sudden weather change, the whole evening went seamlessly :)
