Wedding Planning

So your wedding day should be anything but.

Whether your vision for an unforgettable day involves dancing the night away in a countryside barn, saying “I do” in a sweet-scented vineyard under a canopy of lights, or treating your guests to a chic backyard BBQ reception with cupcakes galore—every detail counts.

This is a moment you’re going to remember for the rest of your life. When you’re pouring through the photo albums and video footage ten years from now, the last thing you want to feel is even an ounce of regret.

So let’s talk about what’s on your wish list…

✓      A unique, memorable setting. You could never settle for just any run-of-the-mill venue.

✓      Food that rocks everyone’s taste buds, from start to finish.

✓      The kind of photographer who’ll capture even the most unexpected of moments. (Like when your guy decides to throw you over his shoulder and spin you around, dress and all.)

✓      A day where you can feel ridiculously pampered. Nothing catches on fire. And Uncle Harry doesn't start singing off-key Broadway hits after his fourth glass of red wine.

✓      And having those little personal touches that really matter to you—the ones your guests will reminisce about years later—without stomping around outside your budget.

That’s a tall order to fill. But then again, that’s what I'm here for.

As a certified wedding planner, I'm a true pro when it comes to making your special day just as beautiful, heartfelt and unique as your “how we met” story.

Whether it’s antique mason jars you want in your d├ęcor or tissue tassel balloons, silly photo booth set-ups or chalkboard signage, or absolutely none of those— I've got you covered.

You’ll be able to just sit back and relax while I get down n’ dirty with all the details. (I’ll gladly schmooze with your Pinterest and Etsy accounts. You can’t fool me. I know you’re raiding them for wedding inspiration on a daily basis, just like the rest of us!)

I’ll pull you through those bridezilla moments with grace. Like when your mom keeps insisting on roses when you've got your heart set on daisies.

And if you’re the crafty type, we can figure out which DIYs are totally manageable and which ones are better left to the professionals.

But that’s not all.

For me, navigating you towards wedding day bliss is all about ensuring everything runs smoothly, from planning to execution. Basically, taking a HUGE load off your shoulders. So when you’re lost in that heart-pounding moment while you exchange vows with your man, he’ll be the only thing on your mind—just the way it should be.

And I’ll be the one running around and dealing with all your place cards, programs, catering fiascos, disagreements between in-laws and equipment breakdowns. Because that’s what I'm here for.

Interested in bringing me along for the ride?

I've got three options that I can tailor to suit your specific needs:

Full Planning & Coordination
Full-service wedding planning and design styling from start to finish!

Maybe you don’t have the time, experience, or desire to handle everything all by yourself. Turning your Pinterest board in to the wedding of your dreams – while working and having a life – is hard work. Not to worry, I’m the kind of weirdo who loves lists and spreadsheets, as well as fluffy bouquets and sequin linens.

Already have a theme and vision in mind? Or stalled at the guest list? Either way, I’ll help you pinpoint your look and bring it to life. (All while avoiding the usual hair-pulling stress.)

Included in this package is a complimentary initial hangout—lattes included. Once I'm on board, we’ll discuss resources and vendors that would be a perfect fit for you. Then we’ll visit them together so you can make your final decisions.

I’ll act as the point of contact for all vendor communications, manage your budget along with you and plan your timeline.

Plus, you’ll have my much-needed support and coordination skills on board for all those big days—wedding rehearsal, ceremony and reception.

Partial Planning
Best suited to the hands-on couple who likes sweating the small stuff. Have the help and back up you need for your wedding day, as well as a little virtual help and guidance along the way.

If you’re already well on your way to planning your special day, but you’re feeling a little overwhelmed (and fighting off a strong urge to binge on Mars bars), this is the perfect planning route for you.

With partial planning, I'm available to consult via email. I’ll help you solve your way out of any nerve-racking problem, source items when you’re at a loss, offer useful tips and suggestions on how to handle the dreaded uninvited guests on the RSVP card, and everything in-between. Unlike Full Planning, you hand all your vendor meetings and communications.

Of course you’ll still have me on-site for your rehearsal, ceremony and reception to take care of all your face-fanning and refereeing needs.

Month Of Coordination
Are you a hands-on DIY bride who already has an exact picture in your head of how you want your big day to look? Then I'm betting you love the planning process and want to do most of the footwork yourself. You're up for the challenge and you love the planning process.

That doesn't mean that you can’t hand over the finicky details that—let’s be honest—you just don’t want to be bothered with as your day approaches. Let me deal with them instead.

I'm going to coordinate your plans and details just as carefully as you made them, so you can free up your time to focus on your bigger priorities. Like drinking mimosas and getting beautified with your friends and fam.

We’ll schedule an initial hangout to dole out responsibilities and gush about how cute your handmade centrepieces are going to be. I’ll visit and review your site. Then together, we’ll make sure your wedding rehearsal, ceremony and reception go off without a hitch. Sound good?

In addition to planning & styling, KJ & Co. also offers 
vintage rentals for your special events and photo shoots.

consultation? Just email me or give me a ring at 905-977-9094.
