“Wow, where do I start! Well this time last year Mike and I starting planning our wedding. I guess I should say, my mom and I, as Mike didn’t really plan much. He trusted me and knew I wouldn’t do anything crazy. We knew we wanted to get married in the mountains as we love them and spend as much time there as possible. It was going to be a three day event and we knew a wedding planner would make bringing it all together that much easier. That is when Callandra came into the picture. We actually had meetings with a few wedding planners from the Banff/Canmore area. Our meeting with Callandra was the first, and I knew instantly that she was the one. And that is how it all began.
Callandra was phenomenal! She is fun, enthusiastic, professional, and knows her stuff! We wanted a unique wedding with simple elegance. We had an idea of what we wanted and Callandra helped us bring it all together. Her advice and suggestions were fantastic and having someone there for you to do all of the calling and organizing is wonderful. It is like having your own personal wedding secretary. Callandra would listen to my ideas and she would search it out for me. Over the course of the planning, I had a Bridezilla moment and Callandra made sure it all worked out in the end.
Callandra worked very hard to make our wedding everything we wanted it to be. She and her team organized everything, so we could sit back, relax, and enjoy our special weekend. They made sure everything ran smoothly from Friday evening until Sunday afternoon. Just to name a few, they put together the guest goodie bags and placed them each room, made sure the fun casino and BBQ went without a hitch, set up the ceremony space, converted the ceremony space to a cocktail reception (very quickly), put together the reception space and the wedding favours, decorated our room with “Mr. & Mrs.” stuff, organized brunch for the following day, and a late afternoon sleigh ride with hot chocolate for the remaining guests. It was all so amazing! It was like going away on a mini ski holiday and having a wedding in the middle.
Callandra was an integral part of me feeling completely stress-free and happy during our “wedding weekend.” We have had so many of our guests comment on how they had never been to such a fun wedding, and they could see the bride and groom having a wonderful time.
Callandra, we would like to thank you in the most heartfelt of ways. You and your team went above and beyond. You did such a wonderful job. Thank you for making the entire weekend so perfect. No detail went unnoticed and you gave us a chance to really enjoy the moments of the day. Every bride should have a wedding planner like you as part of their wedding day!”
