Viva la wedding is the first wedding coordination service of its kind in the Ottawa area, specializing exclusively in Wedding Day Management. Catering to the bride and groom who are passionate about the planning process and excited to experience it together, Viva la wedding will step in when the fun of developing your theme is over and a professional is needed to make sure all your hard work pays off and your vision is flawlessly executed on your big day.

Joan-Anne Cantley, principal planner at Viva la wedding, initially meets with each couple soon after they set their date to discuss the basics and then again at the two month mark to talk details. From this point on Joan-Anne becomes your right hand (wo)man. Working closely with each couple and their vendors, her goal is to ensure you have a stress free day and enjoy being the guests of honour at the wedding of your dreams.

Viva la wedding’s strong reputation grew through Joan-Anne’s desire to listen, understand and respect her clients’ wants and needs; her ability to create the perfect fusion of function and style; and her insistence on collaborating with only the best vendors the Ottawa area has to offer. Her clients immediately recognize her enthusiasm and commitment to their wedding. She knows the planning process down to every last detail and is the adhesive that bonds all these elements of your wedding together. She works hard, laughs often and genuinely loves what she does.

Worth every penny! Hiring Viva La Wedding was the best decision and investment we made for our wedding. I cannot say enough great things about them. Joan-Anne is sensational. Once you hire her, you will realize that you cannot live without her. We had withdrawal symptoms once the wedding was over. I was so used to e-mailing her with all of my problems and having her solve them. She really takes the stress away and allows you to enjoy your wedding day.

Joan-Anne (Viva la Wedding) was absolutely fantastic. Even though we'd only hired her as a day-of-planner she was on call for advice and questions months before the wedding. We tried to personalize our wedding as much as possible which meant there were lots of little details that had to be kept track of and taken care of on the wedding day and she handled it all with ease. As far as I know, nothing went wrong with our wedding because I never heard a single peep of any of it, Jo took care of it all!

If you want to actually enjoy your wedding day with your family and friends, and if she is free, I would highly recommend hiring Joan-Anne.

Joan-Anne was absolutely wonderful! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our wedding day because we had NOTHING to worry about. Jo took care of everything - dealing with vendors, ensuring the room was set up exactly how we had envisioned it, making sure we were sticking to timelines, etc. Many of our vendors could not believe how organized Jo was and loved the timelines and spreadsheets she sent to them prior to the wedding. I would recommend Jo to any future bride!

Working with Viva la Wedding was fantastic. While planning, it was so helpful to have someone in our "corner" who could make recommendations about vendors in our area, who wasn't trying to sell us something, just trying to help us have a great day. Our rehearsal was fantastic; Joan-Anne really made sure that everyone involved (and we had a BIG wedding party) understood what needed to be done on the wedding day, and they (and we!) were thrilled with how it went. And then on the wedding day, Joan-Anne exceeded expectations yet again. I didn't need to worry about anything, because I knew it was under control. We put a lot of work into our wedding, and it was SO GOOD to have everything go the way we planned, without having to do any trouble shooting/double checking on the day of! Plus, when we were planning our ceremony & reception, Joan-Anne made some awesome suggestions that really helped make it a memorable day, and make everything run smoothly. We would hire Viva la Wedding again in a heartbeat.

Jo, I can't thank you enough for all you did to ensure that Eric and I had the perfect wedding day. From our initial meeting over a year ago right up until the wee hours on the day of our wedding, you were absolutely amazing! Not only did you meet our expectations but you went above and beyond for us. My wedding day was all I dreamed of and more because of you. You were professional, organized, detail oriented, kind, caring, full of great referrals and suggestions, and always there to offer support when we needed it. It was obvious to everyone that you genuinely love what you do, and you're so good at it! Eric and I will always hold a special place in our hearts for you.

Joan-Anne was definitely one of the most significant people part of our special day! Her eagerness to help, flexibility, initiative, professionalism, attentiveness to detail and support all made our day a perfect one. I can't imagine it without her having been there. Thanks Jo!

Joan-Anne is the best right-hand woman to have by your side on your wedding day! From the first time we met I knew we would click! She understood my vision and ran with it! Whenever I had questions she was there to help. I would/ will be recommending her to everyone I know. I've also gotten great feedback from a few of my guests about Joan-Anne's awesome work!
