Words cannot express fully how we feel about the love and devotion you put into Zack and Torey's wedding weekend in MUSKOKA. You do it all with confidence, grace and style, never missing a detail. I know when you are around - everything will be taken care of - and with perfection. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.


We're still on a wedding high... Our Boston kids are still here and we're not quite back to our routines. But I have to thank you for your care,your attention to detail, your calming effect, your wise counsel, your great taste, your excellent judgement, your organizational ability, your amazing team, your endless emails,( I miss them already) , your ability to not let us sweat the small stuff, even though there was no detail that was too small for your keenest attention. You did a superb job and I would recommend your services to anyone who asks..

We are married and back from our honeymoon!!!!! Time fly's when your having fun, that's for sure!! Karen, THANK YOU SO much for all your help, guidance, advice, generosity, kindness and of course having Nicole be the most amazing help on our wedding day. I have always admired the way you work, your style, creativity and how easily things come to you. In my eyes you are the best in the industry and I am the lucky one who got to experience it first hand :) You and Nicole made our wedding day a complete success. It was the most magical day for us and we couldn't have asked for anything better! Nicole was all over every detail and a few steps ahead of me at all times. It was so extremely great to have her a part of our day!! THANK YOU SO MUCH! I am truly touched and honoured to have had your and Nicole's help.


Firstly, I want to thank you for all the work you put in to making Jordan and Sarah's wedding such a special and stress free event. It was a beautiful event and all the vendors did their job seamlessly and professionally to make the event spectacular. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Your help at stepping in when I was not able to over these past 2 months really helped Sarah put the final touches on some of the choices. It could not have happened without your professional and calm way of doing things. Once again thank you.

I wanted to first THANK YOU so much from both Damir and I and our whole family for all the help and advice you have given us along the way. Everyone who has been in touch since the wedding said they were so impressed with how well organized everything was and that you were on top of the game the entire day and weeks coming up to it. Honestly, we had little stress with everything and everyone got to truly enjoy the day. Everyone kept saying that everything looked like it was out of a movie and my dad was very impressed with the set up and how everything ran. To work on two separate events on the day of the wedding - one in a tent in our backyard, and then moving to RattleSnake Golf Club for the evening party - was flawless! Another BIG thank you to Scott and Nicole for aiding in all the organizing process. You rocked this Croatian Wedding!!! Our family would't hesitate for one second to recommend you for any event... wedding or otherwise!

I would recommend Karen for any event. I worked with Karen on both of my daughters' Bat Mitzvahs. I could not have been happier with how they both went. She is so easy to work with. There was nothing that she missed. I was able to enjoy the evening without having to worry about anything.

We worked with Karen on a lovely wedding several years ago. It was a memorable evening! Karen had full control of the day and executed a flawless event.

Three amazing weddings in the last five years! One of the biggest reasons is Karen Jacobs and her expertise. Being the mother of the grooms often makes it more difficult to plan a wedding. But every step of the way Karen was available with creative ideas, resources and advice. (answering thousands of questions) She has a huge network of vendors at her fingertips and worked well within our different budgets. She helped us to navigate each unique situation, always taking into account all the different personalities. I knew every detail would be taken care at each wedding and it was! At each wedding she had an incredible team working with her to make sure everything went smoothly. This November, Nicole and Scott worked with her and they were amazing. My son and daughter-in law had their dream wedding as did my other sons and daughter-in laws. I was able to enjoy every minute of the wedding because I knew Karen and her team would take care of all the details. Karen is the ultimate professional and I love working with her. Can't wait to plan the next wedding!

Karen Jacobs just helped me plan my 50th birthday party. Her impeccable taste, organizational skills and friendly demeanour made the event a huge success. The party was flawless, from the live music to the delicious food. This is third event she has planned for me (the first was my son's bar mitzvah and the second an alumni event for my alma mater at my home). Each was vastly different and I can say that she is the MAVEN of event planning because she followed each mandate with sensitivity, skill and creativity. I cannot recommend Karen highly enough.

Karen helped us realize the dream of a perfect wedding for our daughter and son in law this past November. We had 6 months to organize, with the bride and groom living out of the country for 3 of those months. Karen swung into action immediately. She provided the direction and guidance we all required to achieve an elegant and cost efficient affair. Her suggestions and connections allowed us to achieve in 3 months what in normal circumstances would have taken a year. It was a truly remarkable ride. Her vendors are the model of professionalism. We interacted with people who are the true leaders in the business. What a joy. We had a budget, and this was honoured without compromising our vision. Karen's attention to detail is legendary. She is on top of every minute detail. We felt so assured and calm. In many ways that is the hallmark of a great planner. We are still on a high from our celebration. Our guests have all commented on the outstanding event. Karen and her skilled team set the gold standard in event planning. Many thanks.

Thanks to Karen, Julia and David's special day was much more than they imagined it would be. Karen immediately understood Julia's vision for her wedding and helped every step of the way, offering a huge knowledge base, great suggestions, professionalism along with strong communication skills. Her organization and attention to details made the wedding not only beautiful, but completely stress free and lots of fun. Many emails and conversations and meetings were always supportive and helpful. Karen has an excellent reputation with vendors. She recommended vendors and stayed in constant contact with them, especially in the days leading up to the wedding. From our initial meetings, to meetings with the caterer and florist, she provided fantastic advice and guidance, all the while keeping Julia calm, at ease, up-to-date and reassured. Karen made certain that all the wedding plans went smoothly, she kept the planning on track and according to our schedule, ensuring everyone was on time and focused the day of. Karen made sure that all the little things were perfect, and the perfect things were wonderful. Both Karen and her assistant Nicole, handled everything at the wedding, which meant we were made to feel like guests, and in so doing, our families were able to relax and enjoy the wedding day with no concerns ever brought to our attention. Many of our guests commented on what a great job Karen and Nicole did and how they were so instrumental in making this "the best wedding ever"! Karen takes great pleasure in wedding planning and the quality of her work reflects her enthusiasm. We can't wait for Karen to plan our future daughter-in-law and son's wedding in March 2015.

We cannot thank Karen enough for helping to make our wedding the best night of our lives. The night ran flawlesly and we felt completely stress free all day. The way we felt was a result of how well she scheduled and planned our wedding. It was a pleasure working with KJ throughout the engagement. She made me feel like there was no problem that was too big for her to handle and no detail that was not thought about. The vendors that she recommended to us where a pleasure to work with and I cannot wait to see the final results of the video and photography. I also wanted to thank her assistant Nikki. She was extremely helpful and calm all day. She was constantly coming up to David and I and all of our family members to ensure we felt comfortable and to check if there was anything we needed. She was such a pleasure to have throughout the day. I am so grateful for all of the time and effort you spent working with me and my family on making the night the wedding of our dreams!

We have had the pleasure of working with Karen on many different occasions and we can say with confidence that Karen is one of the top event planners we've ever worked with. Karen's vast event knowledge and association with the city's top vendors ensures her events are always well managed and aesthetically on point. We would not hesitate to recommend Karen for any event you are planning!

I had only 2 months to plan a wedding. I knew the key was to hire an experienced planner. I had hired Karen for three previous parties and I knew she had the experience and the composure to handle a party at the Shangri-la hotel. I was right. She listened,she advised and took responsibility. Her expertise meant she knew what was in,who to call and what the pricing should be. The best decision I made was to retain Karen. The wedding was exactly what I was hoping for!
