I can’t think of a better decision I’ve made over the past year (other than picking the right husband) than hiring Jessie as my wedding planner. She holds herself to the highest level of professionalism and is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her work. She is kind, attentive and supportive like a best friend (or a mother haha), but at the same time honest, assertive and decisive -- exactly the kind of personality you want to get things done, and to get things done right. She is dedicated to make each wedding unique to each couple and what a phenomenal job she has done for us. We hired her for month-of planning, but she went above and beyond to help us throughout the entire planning process, putting in countless more hours and bringing in 4 (yes, 4!!!) assistants on the wedding day to ensure every detail of our wedding was perfect. Many months after our wedding, I am still getting inquiries about who was my wedding planner because they thought the wedding was so personalized and well organized.

I knew I was going to hire Jessie within a few minutes of our initial meeting. She made a great impression right away, because it was very evident that she took time to prepare and understand who we are as a couple even before we met in person. When I described my wedding ideas, she seemed just as excited as I am to implement them. Over the next 6 months (before her month-of contract began), I shamelessly bugged her almost every day with random ideas and questions, and she answered every question thoroughly and gave me valuable advice. She even called a vendor to clarify things when she sensed that the vendor and I may have had a miscommunication. None of this was in the scope of our contract, and it never felt like we had a client-vendor relationship, she just genuinely cared and wanted the best for our wedding.

The month leading up to the wedding would have been the most stressful time of my life, but because of Jessie, I was at ease and I enjoyed the process immensely. There were so many little details to think about and problems to tackle, but Jessie always had our backs. "Thank God we have Jessie" was one of the most common phrases my husband and I said during that month. During the rehearsal, she and her assistant Stella were very professional and walked us through every step, where to stand, where to look, how to hold the flowers, when to pause... It definitely made our ceremony on the wedding day go smoothly. My bridal party, parents and in-laws all commented on how outstanding she was after meeting her. It made me so proud that I chose her.

On the day of the wedding Jessie brought along with her 4 assistants, Melody, Cindy, Stella and Fion. They arrived on time and started to work right way. I had prepared a ton of DIY Items that they needed to be set up, including 90x of escort cards tied to key shaped favours that they had to sort in alphabetical order, 90x90 photos of each guest and photo stands that they needed to place on reception tables according to my exact seating plan, 90x candy favors that had serial numbers on them so they had to place in specific tables ( for a game later), 90x blow bubbles for each seat in the ceremony, tons of signs, stationery, decoration. Nothing was missed, everything impeccable and setup exactly the way I wanted.

Jessie's emergency kit also came to our rescue. I had satin kimono robes for my bridesmaids, but they weren't staying closed if you know what I mean. It was something you’d never expect to be an issue but it was because it meant we couldn’t take getting ready photos with the robes slipping open (and all our photographers were men!) ... and then Jessie opened her kit and pulled out clothing tape O_O what a relief!!! This is probably just an example of the little hiccups during the day that she resolved, but I wasn't aware of anything else because she and her team made sure I was worry free and enjoyed being a bride.

Jessie handled every task with the utmost care and always over delivered results. I briefly mentioned to her a few days prior to the wedding that I wanted a photo-op at the altar before the ceremony. It wasn’t something I thought we could have fit into the tight schedule that day but she made it happen. And thanks to her I have some of my favorite pictures from the wedding. For the reception, we needed to play a variety of media on the projector provided by our venue, but I didn’t want to pay an extra 1k to use the venue AV staff to operate it. To help me save money, Jessie took it upon herself to learn how to operate the equipment and test play all the audio and videos to ensure everything was going to work. Even after the wedding was over she continued to help me. When I was having some issues with a vendor after the wedding, she made sure to call me and hear me out, and she contacted the vendor for me to try and smooth things over.

I would highly recommend Jessie and her team as a wedding planner. I wish I had asked her for full planning services if I can go back in time because I enjoyed working with her so much. Everytime I see her profile picture pop up on weChat moments now, I get reminded of the good times we spent together planning one of the most important days of my life. I am so grateful that I had met her. She is exceptional. The best in the industry. Set up a meeting with her, you will be glad you did!!

During our initial consultation with Jessie, we already knew she was the one. She earned our trust with her knowledge and experience. We saw a lot of value in her planning package for the price we paid. And we wish we could have known her and hired her for full planning since the beginning.

Jessie was extremely patient. She was able to answer all the questions we had in a timely manner. She was very thorough. When we were drafting our timeline, she covered every little detail, even those we were not aware of. She took the time to understand what we really wanted and worked around it. We had our wedding at a very new venue. Sometimes, it could be a little disorganized. Jessie woud follow up with them consistently to make sure they provided the required information in time. At this point, I trust Jessie so much that I would turn to her for affirmation every time I was asked a question during our venue meeting. She surprised us even more when she spent almost 3 hours rehearsing with us, from how the bridal party should stand to how we put on the ring for each other.

Like Jessie told us many times, our day could not be perfect. There were indeed hiccups here and there. But Jessie... She and her team did a phenomenal job. Jessie was so sweet and considerate. She put me at ease so I could just enjoy being the bride. She felt like a friend to me. She made sure my husband and I had food and drinks throughout the day. When our cake showed up to be completely different than what we ordered, I could feel she was as upset as I was. But she comforted me and promised me to fix it as much as she could, which she did. She also complained to the cake vendor on the spot and got partial refund for us. Oh, my uncle showed up right before our ceremony asking for translation to be done for his speech at reception. I thought it was so unreasonable and told Jessie to ignore it :S. But Jessie somehow was able to make it happen and translated my uncle's speech before the reception. We were also very surprised and touched when she had server brought hot water to my two pregnant bridesmaids. Every interaction Jessie had with our family, bridal party and us was warm and caring.

We don't know what we would have done without Jessie. We had so much fun (maybe a little too much) at our wedding. Jessie and O Weddings made it possible. We will recommend Jessie and her team to anyone who wants exceptional planning services!

I just wanted to thank you on behalf of both my husband and myself for an amazing wedding that you helped us plan. I apologize for taking so long to write this review, since we had been so busy moving back to Ottawa.

From our very first meeting, I knew you were very capable at doing what you do; you were confident and very outspoken. I appreciate your flexibility when you told us about the possibility of getting half of your service, which gave us more control and room to make our own decisions, but nevertheless be able to utilize your valuable connections. I had only found out about Paletta Mansion through your portfolio and immediately fell in love with the place, our families and friends loved and raved about the venue, and we can’t imagine a better place to have gotten married at. The vendors you have introduced us were ALL very amazing people, and delivered products/end results that were over and above our expectations. I loved the fact that you always gave the most honest opinions, but never pushed us into things that we think unnecessary. Most importantly, I want to thank you for everything you’d done for us on the day of our wedding, everything went so smooth, and you were there to coordinate everything, I felt completely worry-free, which I’m sure wouldn’t have been possible without you and your assistant.

Lastly, to all those who are considering to go with Jessie as their wedding planner, don’t hesitate, as she is professional, has great taste (which is very important for weddings =)), resourceful, and will go out of her way to create your dream wedding.

We had wanted a month of wedding planner and was referred to Jessie from O Weddings by our photographer. After our initial meeting with Jessie, it was clear that she would be the one. She explained all the details to us and let us know exactly what she would be assisting with on the day of. Right off the bat, Jessie made us feel comfortable and this was key because we wanted someone we knew we would get along with as we inched closer to the big day. She is passionate about her job and really really cares about all of her clients! She gives you her time and attention to make sure she knows all the details to make your dream wedding come true! After meeting Jessie, we didn’t bother researching any other vendors or meeting anyone else because we knew we had found the right person.
During the weeks leading up to our big day, Jessie made sure to update me on what was happening and always called me whenever she felt that I was feeling stressed. She made sure on the week of to contact all vendors, and on the day of, there was nothing that I needed to do. She came to rehearsal and made sure she knew exactly the run down for everything and gave us suggestions as necessary to make sure everything was perfect.
On the day of, Jessie and her team took full control and made sure everything ran smoothly. They were extremely professional, and came well prepared with an emergency kit in case anything was needed. When we entered the room, it was beautifully decorated just as I imagined. Jessie is very detail oriented and made sure none of the small details were missed. She would change plans accordingly to accommodate anything that came up. On the day of, not once was any issues brought to my attention because Jessie had taken care of it. Jessie is the type of person who would go the extra mile to make sure your wedding was memorable. She even stayed later than planned with her team to make sure all the speeches were done before leaving which was extremely appreciated.
Both my husband and I cannot thank Jessie enough for her help! She made our wedding so memorable and all the guests commented on all smoothly everything went!
Jessie, you are the best! We are forever grateful for your help and making our big day so unforgettable. Thank you to you and your amazing team!
