My wife and I selected Michael to manage our day-of wedding services. We were immediately impressed with how professional he was in arranging our initial meetings, and developing an agenda. He continuously went out of his way to accommodate our schedules and keep us informed of communications he maintained with our vendors.
Each worry or concern we presented Michael with was met with a reassuring 'Don't stress, I'll take care of it. Your day is going to be beautiful.
Michael was lovely to work with. He brought creative energy and enthusiasm to planning our event. He had great ideas and kept everything, and everyone, on track. We would recommend him to anyone looking to plan a special and memorable event.

We planned our wedding at Steam Whistle Brewing in Downtown Toronto, and even though Michael is an Ottawa based planner we asked for his assistance with planning our wedding. He stepped right up to the plate and hit a home run! From coordinating our ceremony rehearsal at our pre-wedding BBQ to organizing last call and helping us get everyone out of the venue when they didn’t want the party to stop, Michael was on top of his duties and far exceeded our expectations. Our friends and family gathered the day of the wedding and made all of our floral arrangements and Michael came in and set the tables with the arrangements and candles and gave a very industrial space some of his glamourous flare!

Thank you Michael, you made what could have been a stressful day into a most pleasurable and memorable event for all. We would highly recommend Michael for your special day.

I was blown away by Michael's attention to detail and his creativity. One of the best parts of hiring Michael was the peace of mind that comes with having such an organized, thoughtful, and creative planner. I was able to really enjoy stress-free planning knowing that he was working hard behind the scenes. His personalized ideas were really appreciated. I highly recommend Michael and will certainly use his services again!

On the day of our wedding, Michael routinely went above and beyond to fix last minute glitches and troubleshoot problems. He maintained his calm composure throughout the day, tending to both of us brides and our 130 guests with apparent ease.
Regardless of the requests that came his way, Michael ensured that our day was perfect. We couldn't recommend a more qualified and talented individual to help create your special day.
We had planned an outdoor ceremony, and we thought the rain was going to hold off long enough for us to make it through. However, as soon as all of the guests were seated outside it started pouring rain! Everyone was brought inside and the tables that we already set were pushed out of the way for an impromptu ceremony that had everyone lined up on either side forming an aisle for the bridal party to enter. Michael kept me in the loop the entire time and he was so positive and assured me it was going to be beautiful, despite my dream of an outdoor ceremony. I have to say, it was perfect. It made us feel even closer to our family and friends during such a special moment in our lives. And to see Michael there before I entered with my Dad was just the moment I needed to calm my nerves.
- Stephanie, bride
We had the pleasure of having Michael provide his expertise at our daughter's wedding in June 2017. The wedding was set in the country at a large outdoor venue that covered quite a bit of ground. Michael saw to it that the entire grounds were properly set up to accommodate the 125 guests, including the "First Look" setting, the ceremonial area, the cocktail party, the dinner and ultimately the reception. His attention to detail is second to none, allowing the day to flow without a glitch. His work ethic is to be admired. He saw that all facets of the day were attended to with great detail requiring him to stay into the late evening and be one of the last to leave the venue. His calm, professional and even keel demeanour allowed for the day to be perfect.
