Planning Services

Based on our experience and feedback from our amazing clients, we have decided to re-vamp our wedding planning services and offer our clients affordable and customizable ways to plan their big day!

 

We are now offering wedding planning services at an hourly rate of just $250/hour. Our knowledge and experience are second to none with planning well over 200 weddings a year for the past 10 years. We are efficient and well educated on all of the venues and vendors in our local area.

We've come up with this new pricing as before we offered a flat fee for wedding planning and we've noticed that some clients hardly use up their allotted time that we allocated for within our package price and others are using up more time than what our package price provided. We have grown so much over the past few years and we are so appreciative of the communities continued support in hiring our team for their special day that we just wanted to streamline our working hours and make it feasible for our clients and our staff to be a part of everyone’s special day and have enough hours in the day to accomplish all of the amazing weddings and events.

Some of the examples we do when hired for planning and not limited to are:

-       Discussion of theme, colour, style and complete wedding design

-       Coordination & communication with venues and hired vendors

-       Research of wedding professionals in each category that fits your event style and budget and to provide you with suggestions and guidance, pros/cons, in making the final decision

-       RSVP and Seating chart management

-       Scheduled in person or over the phone meetings, emails and scheduled phone calls

 

We also still have our highly demanded "Month of Coordination" package, at a cost of $2995.00 which clients will receive but are not limited to: 

-       A complete detailed wedding day timeline provided to venue(s), vendors, bridal party, family members or anyone who is involved in your special day. 

-       10 hours of wedding day management (I.e. on-site set up, tear down, pickups, deliveries, on-site coordination...etc.)

-       Meeting with the couple up to 1 month prior to finalize all wedding details and to start preparing the timeline

-       Emergency day kit! Can't live without it! You just never know when we have to pull out the Tums or Advil and even a needle and thread!

Reviews from our clients

"My wedding at the cornerstone was what absolute dreams are made of. I couldn’t of been happier! All of my flowers were done by Natasha they were beautiful, my Bella Arbour was absolute perfection, the layout and decor was stunning, and the venue was wonderful. Natasha and her team were great and easy to work with, I would have that day 20 times over if I could. Thank you so much for making my wedding dreams come true."

"We can’t express how thankful we are to Natasha, Paul, Kaylnn, Caitlin, Michel, Ally and all the staff at Natasha’s services.

Planning a wedding from the other side of the country is not an easy task, but they made it so seamless. From helping us pick decor, making my bouquet, providing an amazing photo booth service (the highlight of the night for more guests), and playing the best music around to get people dancing, their team did everything in their power to make our day special.

You always hope that the weather will be on your side on your wedding day. When we found out Saint John was getting a hurricane on the day of our wedding, Natasha made us feel in such good hands. She was so adaptable and had a second plan for us in mind to transform our outdoor ceremony venue to an indoor ceremony within minutes. They were professional, kind, prepared and effective communicators. Every piece of decor at our wedding was beautiful because of their hard work and attention to detail. Being a crafty bride, I made a lot of my decor and she was able to incorporate all of my personal touches in the ceremony and reception with the exact vision I had always imagined.

DJ Mike was amazing. He interacted with the crowd, worked with our EMCEES, played all of our songs and had almost all of our guest on the dance floor until 1am.

My husband and I could not recommend Natasha’s services more. Without them, we couldn’t have pulled off so many last minute complications with the weather and such a memorable day. As soon as I met Natasha, I knew my wedding day was in good hands and she gave us a day to always remember. "

Natasha is hands down the most organized person I know. She is strong, professional, energetic, committed and exactly what I needed to eliminate any wedding worries or stresses. I can’t say enough positive things about her and her team.

Natasha, we can’t thank you and Paul enough for going above and beyond your duties and we will forever be grateful to you both.

To anyone considering working with Natasha and her team, I promise you will not be disappointed!!! She is incredible and we absolutely loved working with her.

"Hi Natasha & Paul

 

Just wanted to thank you guys (and Kalynn..again!) for everything that you have done for our wedding. It was the best day of mine and Katelyn's lives and it wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for you and your crew. I must confess I wasn't a huge fan of getting a wedding planner but you guys won me over and could see the value of hiring you guys. It made a huge difference in how the wedding turned out. The decor, DJing, was amazing! We got a lot of positive comments on it and not one person had a bad time at the wedding

"Natasha gave us the wedding of our dreams. 
I must say, we had dreamed up quite an unorthodox wedding. It took place outdoors, on the other side of the country... and we arrived in the city we got married in (for the first time ever) the day before our wedding. 
Needless to say, making arrangements was complicated....
Until we got in touch with Natasha! 
She recommended to us an amazing and incredibly kind photographer, Candace Snowdon, as well as the lovely and efficient officiant Janet Steeves, and Lori from the Potting Shed, who made me the bouquet I was dreaming of without ever meeting me in person and had the flowers delivered 100% on time, all for a reasonable price! 
It was a simple wedding, but all of the details that mattered to us were exactly what we wanted, and when we had some snags along the way (best man misses his flight... didn't have necessary info to get our license...) Natasha sprung into action to help in any way she could, and Candace, Lori and Janet were always wonderful and understanding. 
It was the best day of my life and I cannot thank you enough Natasha!"

 I found Natasha and her staff amazing to work with. When I first met with Natasha, she was so organized and had wonderful ideas and advice for us about our wedding day. I found her services to be stellar, and very professional. Herself, and her staff, are so helpful on our wedding day.

"Natasha took my vision for my wedding and made it into a reality. I planned my wedding over 3.5 years and Natasha was there to help and listen along every step of the way. From suggesting amazing vendors to taking the time to listen to what I really wanted and make suggestions in areas I wasn't sure of what I wanted. Natasha and her team are amazing and I recommend all of her many services to all couples!"

Natasha & Paul,
"Where do we even begin? You both are amazing and you are now part of the family so please keep in touch!

Andre and I so appreciate your organization and helping us to plan and execute our exact vision for our wedding day at Lily Lake Pavilion on Sept 14, 2018. All of your recommendations for vendors were amazing- Candace Snowdon, Sam Tobias for hair, Nicole Roy for makeup, Lily Lake, Potting Shed, Piece O Cake, Susan Bernard for alterations ( amazing !), DJ Steve, Heinz Limo company.

Natasha/ Paul- When planning a wedding from out of Province, Andre and I so appreciated your organization and dedication to our day. We always felt like a huge priority even though you do over 250 weddings per year...wow!!! You have the best personalities..so down to earth, outgoing, friendly. We often wonder if you ever sleep but always look rested. The decor was beautiful! Thank you for always being available to answer questions by phone, email, messaging! Andre and I did not feel stressed on our Best Day Ever because we knew we could count on you both to keep everyone organized and run errands so we could enjoy the ride. Picking up Reactine for bridesmaids..thank you! Awesome.

Natasha- thank you for being our MC as well and singing a wonderful love song for us! Such talent!

I wish there was a way to give you both 20+ stars as we do not believe that 5 stars is enough.

We are so honored to share the wonderful month of Sept with you both. We hope your wedding Day Sept 28, 2018 is as special as you made Andre's and my Best Day Ever!

Love you both lots"
