When my husband and I first got engaged, we wanted a destination wedding but wasn't really sure where to start. So, we spent some time online looking for a wedding planner and stumbled upon Zerlene. After reading several pages of positive reviews, we reached out. Zerlene made herself available right away to meet with us and discuss our vision. She did a great amount of work upfront - provided us with destination and resort options, weather forecasts, wedding package and cost comparison charts, etc. She was on top of all the details and always made herself available to discuss them. 

A few months later we needed to change our plans and keep the wedding local. Although a big change in direction, Zerlene immediately started sending us local venue, vendor, and costing options to get the ball rolling on the new plans.

Throughout the whole process, we very much appreciated Zerlene's industry knowledge, reference documents, check-lists, check-in calls, reminders, recommendations, and suggestions. It was really great to have someone managing all the details and timelines, as both my husband and I were extremely busy with work.

We also had Zerlene and her assistant for day-of coordination and everything ran smoothly. We were able to relax and enjoy every second of our wedding day without any worries. 

Aside from Zerlene’s hard skills, she is such a lovely person and we're so glad to have had her by our side throughout the whole planning process and on our special day.

We live in Alberta but our families are both in Ontario along with many friends so we thought it made the most sense to get married in Ontario.

I am so happy that I had Zerlene every step of the way planning our intimate out-of-town wedding. Dealing with wedding planning from a distance and with my other half being really busy this year with work, I needed someone to bounce my ideas off of and to help narrow things down.

Zerlene made several suggestions for vendors that were within our budget and was quick about obtaining contracts. Her organizational skills are far superior to mine. Her reminders and payment tracking helped us both feel at ease throughout the process.

I enjoy plain and natural elements and from Zerlene’s portfolio, she has lots of experience with elegant and elaborate decor. Even so, she listened to my ideas and helped make my vision come to life! She attended appointments with me when I was in town, attended the rehearsal, picked up, delivered and set up decor.. and even lent us some of her personal items for use. She was always prepared to do a last minute errand and had backup items such as a warm shawl for my freezing cold made of honour carrying my dress out in -25 degree weather!

The last week I had hit my ultimate stress level and felt worried that things weren’t going to work out the way I’d planned. Zerlene managed things and worked well with my bridesmaids to make our wedding a dream come true and everything worked out in the end!! Everything was even better than I had imagined!

Thank you Impresario Events! We will forever relive this special day!

Zerlene and her team at Impresario Events were incredible! Zerlene was recommended to me by a friend, and I am so glad I booked her for full planning. Zerlene was so attentive and thoughful from our first meeting, and fully trusted her to help with my wedding. Throughout the planning process, she was always available to talk over the phone, and did an amazing job at keeping me organized and on top of all the payments and things to do! As the wedding got closer, her itinerary for the day, and check-lists were so helpful! She follow's up with all your vendors (and even took care of a delivery that didn't show up, and I had no idea it even happened!). She attended my rehearsal, and set up a meeting with Glenda (who was helping out for the wedding day), a few weeks before the wedding, where we all went through every little detail! Which really puts you at ease in the stressful weeks leading up to the big day. Zerlene and Glenda are AMAZING, I cannot thank them both enough for everything they did to ensure the day went so so smoothly! They were on top of everything, and when I showed up to the reception it looked perfect. Please do not hesitate with booking Impresario Events, you will be so happy you did!!

Zerlene and the Impresario team were wonderful to work with! I knew I wanted a wedding planner as my partner and I have busy lives and needed someone to source vendors and negotiate prices on our behalf. I can say without a doubt that Zerlene is very responsive and great in providing her unbiased opinion, which is something I highly value. Her superior organizational skills and pro-activeness to get things done meant that my partner and I barely had to lift a finger.

On the wedding day, we arrived at the venue and Zerlene and the team were already hard at work putting everything together and making sure that we were satisfied with how everything look. Most importantly, Zerlene was able to manage issues that came up. The flowers were about half an hour late and we were starting to run out of time but Zerlene waited and contacted the vendor and personally delivered the flowers to my room and checked that they were indeed the right flowers. At the reception, my partner found out that the table numbers were not laid out in the way it was provided to us and as a result, would have meant that immediate family members would be sitting all the way at the back. My partner quickly informed Zerlene and she was able to work with the venue to get all the tables, chairs, and seating rearranged. And those were the issues I knew about! I'm sure Zerlene shielded us from other things and in doing so, made sure everything went according to plan.

Overall, I highly recommend Impresario - 5 stars all around!

Zerlene is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is detailed, organized and very professional which helps to ensure drivers are provided an accurate outline of how the day will run.

Zerlene ensures all itineraries are provided well in advance and communicates all changes with the booking agent so we are all on the same page.

We look forward to working with Zerlene in the near future.
