We hired Michelle for our invitations and menu cards (RSVP by Whim) and Alisha for Day-Of Coordination. Both such amazing and fun ladies!!!
Michelle created a custom invitation design for us that we fell in love with instantly! The look and feel of the overall invitation was pure perfection. Many of our guests have actually kept our invitations because they said they absolutely loved them (which is amazing as usually invitations get thrown out). She also created a matching menu place card to tie our whole wedding together and the result was breath-taking!
Being wedding planners ourselves, it was a little hard letting someone else take charge and just relax for the day of our wedding. However, Alisha made us feel 100% comfortable in doing just that! We did not worry about anything on the day and simply enjoyed ourselves knowing that she had everything taken care of.
We highly recommend this wonderful duo for your invitation and wedding planning needs (take it from #theweddingplannercouple !).
Thank you ladies, we really appreciate you!

First of all I would like to encourage anyone who has recently got engaged or is planning a wedding to IMMEDIATELY contact Alisha. I say immediately as her services are way beyond our expectations. She not only helped create our dream wedding but she helped pair us with the most amazing vendors to work with. We decided to go with the full planning as my wife and I have very busy careers and could not manage planning on our own. Our wedding was a little over a week ago and I can tell you both of our families and friends have not stopped talking about how this was the most amazing and organized wedding they have ever attended. Everything turned out perfect (including the weather as it was supposed to rain) and the happiest day of my life would not have been possible without Alisha! We pretty much took almost every recommendation she gave and used vendors she recommended and I can say EVERYONE was amazing!! Like I said at the beginning make sure you contact her immediately as I know she is worth every penny and she may not be available for your dream day if you wait too long! I also know I will be using her again in the future!!
We had a beautiful outdoor ceremony followed by a tented reception at Markham Museum with about 250 guests. I have more videos than pictures but if you want to see anything online feel free to check our hashtag #robzgotherwish
Happy wedding planning and Congrats!!

Alisha was AMAZING!
It was only 4 month between our engagements to the big day. We knew we needed professional help if we are going to make it work.
My wife and I retained Alisha to do full wedding planning for us. We knew she was the perfect fit when she busted out a 150-line checklist and a full stack of excel sheets. It may sound daunting, but it certainly speaks for her level of organization. And dont worry, she took care of most of the paperwork
She was super patient and took us visiting multiple venues often on evening and weekends. Super responsible with speedy email replies and never complained about our harassment calls in late evenings and always accommodated our last minute requests.
Alisha was a great communicator as well, she was able to grasp our vision and communicate effectively to the vendors. Everything turned out more perfectly than we even imagined. Alisha was also great at helping us saving money. Through her extensive network in the wedding industry, we found the best vendors for the job at reasonable prices, not to mention some nifty tricks she taught us that made our dollar stretch the extra mile.
And if you want a stress free wedding day, Alisha is your girl! She organized the timetable effectively, coordinated with all the vendors, does all the communication/negotiations behind the scene, guided our guests and she took care of issues before we even recognize it existed. She has great control over the flow of the event and handled even the small details beautifully. It was truly stress free to the point that I had nothing to do as the groom other than enjoying myself.

As most people would expect, wedding planning is not easy. It can be stressful and overwhelming, especially when, as a couple, our work schedules conflict and can't seem to sit down to plan out our own wedding. Thank goodness for Events by Whim. From mapping out our budget, video calls with vendors, meetings and last minute details, to coordinating our agendas and having a shoulder to lean on, we were in great shape once we decided to go with Alisha & Events by Whim.
So what can we say about our big day? It was the best day of our lives, and without Alisha, Michelle & Ilina from Team Whim, none of it could've happened. We were married in May 2018, and had Whim take care of full coordination for us. Alisha asked us what our dream wedding was in our first meeting, and she made it happen. With all of Alisha's recommendations and vendor referrals, we were able to have our wedding go off without a hitch - seriously! Everything was absolutely perfect and all of our vendors were such a delight to work with. We even had a last minute vendor cancellation where our original videographer had an emergency 3 weeks prior to the wedding date. Alisha never blinked an eye. We called her and let her know immediately that we were screwed. But, without hesitation (and within 2 hours), Alisha had found us a new videographer who's work and final product was excellent. We didn't even have a moment to stress over the situation, because it was handled so quickly! Alisha's planning guide really helped keep us on track for our big day. The planning guide was the most amazing tool for us. It was customized to fit just what we needed for our big day. Alisha also gave us deadlines and answered the hundreds of weird questions we had for her. Her knowledge, expertise and wisdom about everything wedding related made our life easy! Thank you Alisha!
Michelle from Events by Whim managed one of the most important parts of our wedding day, our invites, stationery and all the design details that fall within. All we had to do was tell Michelle our vision, and she created it! Michelle also printed out all of the invites, and also designed/printed our thank-you cards. She designed a logo for us (custom monogram), and incorporated it on our wedding day, which made for such a great theme. All of our guests were complimenting the designs she had put together on our wedding day! The same logo she had created for our invites, were incorporated into our backdrop for photo booth, and we also had it wrapped onto the dance floor. Michelle's eye for design is truly remarkable, and we'd like to thank her for that!
Lastly, on the day of the wedding, we weren't troubled any wedding planning or making sure things were in order, that's why Ilina from Whim was there! On our big day, it felt like we walked into our hall like celebrities. Ilina managed to coordinate all the last minute details with our venue, food service, grand entrances, and staying on schedule. She set up our receiving table, and ensured that we were taken care of (drinks, food, even calm our nerves at times before we said "I do"!). Ilina's professional attitude combined with her humour and positive outlook on life made for a day that we will never forget.
Team Whim, you ladies rock! Thank you for all you have done. You went above and beyond for us, without question or hesitation, and we wouldn't have had the most amazing day of our lives if it weren't for you. If we could go back in time, we would go to our wedding day and do it all over again!
Thank you, we'll forever be referring you to all of our friends and family!

Kevin and I couldn't have picked a better team to help us with our wedding planning for our wedding last month. We stumbled on Whim with a google search but after meeting with a few wedding planners, we picked Alisha as she was down to earth and our personality and style meshed so well. It was helpful to have their online platform during the process to keep us on track throughout the year. Alisha also provided us with many vendor recommendations, which were all phenomenal. On the day of the wedding, I really didn't have to worry about anything. Everything ran smoothly and on time! Our hall was so beautifully decorated and it was so nice to not have to worry about any of the set up. We could just enjoy our wedding day with family and friends! My now husband was most thankful for the bandaids Alisha provided in her emergency kit, which he says carried anything you could think of (wish I got to see this!) and when she fixed the groomsmen boutonierres right before the ceremony. Alisha made sure we had the best time at our wedding and were well fed by bringing us plates of food during cocktail hour, dinner and dessert :)
I would highly recommend Alisha and her team to anyone. They are professional, respond to emails very promptly, and know how to run an event very smoothly. I will miss working with her!
Worked with Alisha for a fab photoshoot and weddings this year, and her attention to detail is what makes all the difference in an event--so organized, never misses a thing, and venue looks so posh! She injects a wonderful vibe at the venue and makes it more fun to be there! We LOVE working with this lady boss! x
Have done Several events with Whim and their planning and executing of an event from beginning to end was great! Our Entertainment was well coordinated together and we always have happy Brides & Grooms!
We had the pleasure of working with Whim Event Coordination this past weekend. Alisha and her team were professional and organized. They transformed our banquet space into an absolutely stunning classical display of beauty. Tastefully elegant design. We would love the opportunity to collaborate with them again in the future. I highly recommend there work and work ethic.
Amazing to work with, very detailed and organized! Whim Events allows me to focus on the entertainment portion of the evening and not worry about the little details in between - because it's already taken care of! One of my favourite vendors to work alongside.
