When I first got engaged I strongly believed that I did not need a planner. I'm very hands on, and I'm great at coordinating events, so this would be easy!....boy was I wrong. 3 months into the wedding planning process I was way in over my head. Then came Roxy to the rescue.
Where do I even begin with Roxy & her team?! They are all absolutely AMAZING. Roxy was the first wedding planner I met with and after our meeting I didn't feel the need to look any further; she got me and my vision! Roxy coordinated my shower and my wedding - both completely different styles - and she exceeded my expectations with both events.
My bridal shower was an English themed garden tea party. All we had to do was dress for the occasion, and the rest was covered! From the florals, to the table settings, to the sweet table, I couldn't have been happier. It literally brought tears to my eyes (I have pictures to prove it!!).
After seeing the shower I could't wait to see what the wedding had in store. We got married at a church in Etobicoke and the reception was held at the Fermenting Cellar in Toronto. The church at the time was undergoing renovations and was covered in scaffolding, but you barely noticed with the amazing trees and floral arrangements that Roxy put together. At the end of the day the construction was a bonus, adding romantic lighting to the floral oasis that enchanted the aisle. As for the reception, there are only 2 words to describe it - jaw dropping! I wanted to mix the fabulous rustic feel of the venue with tradition and glamour, and Roxy did just that and much, much more!
From day one I had over the top ideas that matched an over the top budget. Roxy was so great in providing suggestions that would give me the look I was going for at a cost that I could afford. Not only was she accommodating to my budget, but she accommodated my ongoing ideas with nothing but excitement. Even a week before the wedding I decided that I wanted an extravagant entryway into the venue (I wasn't the easiest bride to work with), so Roxy and her team hung hundreds of roses on crystal strings down the entry ramp into the cellar.
Till this day our guests won't stop talking about the bridal shower and the wedding. I don't even need to go as far as recommending Roxy and her team, because every bride-to-be comes to me asking who made my magic happen. I can't thank them enough for truly giving me the wedding of my dreams.
