“It was Wedding Planner love at first sight! She just got me and understood our vision exactly. I was literally in tears.”
I just have to start by saying that Kailey-Michelle was the saving grace of our wedding day. Just two months before our wedding, and days after moving home from London, England thinking we just had some crafts to make and loose ends to tie up, our wedding venue in Victoria fell through and we had to cancel everything. With two months to spare and a whole years worth of planning to start from scratch, we were devastated!
We had never planned on using a wedding planner. But we met Kailey for high tea and as soon as I saw her smiling face and she said hello, I knew she was going to be amazing and would make our wedding day happen as I dreamed of. It was wedding planner love at first sight! Quickly I knew she just got me, and understood the vision of our wedding exactly how we hoped for.
I dreamt of a 1920’s garden affair, I was so overwhelmed with joy I was literally in tears and all I could say to my dad next to me walking me down, was WOW look at all this. She literally must have listened to every single word that I said to make it that perfect because there wasn’t a thing I would have changed. I could go on forever on all the tiny aspects of the day that she made outstanding. I honestly don’t know how she multitasked so well. She had so much to deal with but remained calm and with a smiling face the whole day.
I will highly recommend Kailey-Michelle to any creative bride who wants someone to make their vision cme to life, brides who love vintage and DIY and need help with creating beautiful, creative and unique ideas or someone who even just wants some help with organization and planning because she is incredibly organized, detail-oriented! She’s a ten and a half out of ten that’s for sure!
So, thank you Mrs. Kailey-Michelle for being an unbelievable woman. You are so incredibly talented, and not only that, you are incredibly inspiring. Thank-you for making the impossible, possible, for somehow calming me down, and for making our wedding day even more beautiful than we hoped for. I am forever thankful that we found you and hope to keep you in my life as a friend after meeting you and spending time creating such a wonderful day with you! Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you!

“We are in awe of how meaningful and moving our day was. You gave that to us!”
It’s hard to express into words how you truly made all our dreams for our wedding come true … and more!!! We are continually in awe reflecting back on how wonderful the day was and most importantly, how meaningful and moving it was. We cannot thank you enough for that and for everything you did to make that happen. I understand (after the fact) that there was quite a bit of drama on the day trying to figure out the weather and what would be best but (in another testament to how wonderful you are) I was oblivious to it!! All I saw and experienced was the love, emotion, and beauty of the day and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving that to me and to us. Everything came together even better than we could of dreamed, so thank you, thank you, thank you!

“I literally just had to show up because she had everything under control!”
You don’t realize how much you need a kind, caring, hopeless romantic, strong, organized, considerate and professional person helping you on the day of your wedding…until your wedding day! We couldn’t be more thankful to have had Kailey-Michelle helping us go through all the ups and downs that got us to our wedding day. If there’s one thing that was THE BEST on our wedding day, was how I literally just had to show up and participate in the show that she was directing! I thoroughly enjoyed just taking the day in and not worrying about a thing because Kailey-Michelle literally had everything under control! She really did a fantastic job.
I truly know that anyone lucky enough to work with her will have the same, wonderful experience my husband and I had. She was filled with suggestions, great working with all the vendors and helped keep both our heads on straight. She made a very big difference to a very special day in our lives.
Kailey-Michelle – all we can say is thank you so much. I really hope you know how much it means to both of us by you being a friend, being present and being there when we really needed it. Much love!! xoxo

“Entrusting you with our wedding was the best decision we could have made!”
Kailey, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you so very much for your hard work. You and your amazing team did a wonderful job of everything. I can’t even begin to express my gratitude. Your hard work put together the most amazing day we could have imagined, down to the smallest details. The entire day went perfectly, we would have been lost without you there. Entrusting you with our wedding was the best decision we could have made! We are so grateful. Again Thank You.
-Jessica Harrington | Bride [August 10, 2012]
“She guaranteed our night was amazing! Everything was beyond my expectations.”
Kailey-Michelle was invaluable to the success of our wedding!! I cannot imagine not having her and her team there to make sure every detail was perfect and running smoothly. Having her was one of the best investments we made to guarantee that our night was amazing!
Kailey-Michelle did the work leading up to the wedding, contacting vendors and creating a seamless timeline. Everyone was so impressed with their professionalism and attentiveness- even the vendors made note. Our guest and wedding party continue to give praise. I don’t know what I would have done without her. Felt so sad saying good bye, as I felt like I had made a new friend. Everything was above and beyond our expectations and I would highly reccomend her to any future bride!

“Someone who could face ANY challenge with grace!”
Thank-you does not begin to cover what you did for us in helping make our wedding a seamless event. I know we came to you with a challenge of planning it within 30 days, but you rose to the occasion making it seem as though we had spent a whole year planning every little detail. You were able to help me relax when the big day came knowing that I had someone who could face any challenge with grace. People were amazed at how beautiful everything was, and I was amazed that you were able to work within my budget. You were there every step of the way from finding the perfect dress and photographer, to the beautiful centrepieces and decor, and helping me find the best caterer, and all the fine little touches that made this day truly remarkable. I appreciate all your hard work and dedication and being there to support me 100%. I am very fortunate to have you in my life, and I wish you and your company the best of luck. Any Bride/Groom would be lucky to have you there. I know I was!!

“I will sing your praises ALWAYS!”
You are an amazing person, with such a giving heart. You have my daughter, as well as myself, the ability to enjoy the whole wedding experience. I know if it was not for you, we would not have the memories to cherish that we do now. I will sing your praises always!
-Michelle Jones| Mother of the Bride [September 20th, 2014]
“Guests said it was the most organized and beautifully decorated wedding they’d ever been to!”
Kailey-Michelle, Thank you so much for doing such an amazing job of organizing and decorating for our wedding! I really appreciate all of your hard work, as well as the girls working with you. I received SOOOO many complements from guests about how our wedding was the most organized and beautifully decorated wedding they had EVER been to! Thank you for making my dream wedding a reality! I will gladly pass on your name to anyone planning an event and feel confident they will be as pleased as I am with your service.

“The BEST money I spent on the whole wedding!”
First of all, if you ever decide to give up wedding planning – you must consider psychology! Your input into our lives has been of immeasurable benefit…
I tear up just thinking about the love you showed up. How do I thank you? You were the turning point in the planning of my daughters wedding. We were able to see a vision and start putting the pieces together. I credit you as being used by God to bring direction and vision to what was an absolutely perfect day! Our time with you was such a positive, incredibly worthwhile and valuable experience. I would recommend you and your services to anyone in a heartbeat!
Thank you, thank you, thank you Kailey – you are an amazing women and so worthy of being financially rewarded for your service. Probably the BEST money I spent on the whole wedding!
-Janice Frick | Mother of the Bride [July 25, 2014]
“A little MIGHTY Mouse! We had NO STRESS!”
Thank you so much, Kailey-Michelle for making my day go SO perfect! We had no stress the entire day because we were so confident in your ability to handle everything. I don’t doubt that plenty of things went wrong, but you never let me in on it and the day went by seamlessly! You are my little might mouse! I could not have handled this on my own and I am incredibly grateful you came into my life! Working with You allowed my husband and I to have one of the greatest days of our lives.
-Bridget Wrench | Bride [August 6, 2011]
“We wondered if we really needed a planner, but Kailey was a necessity!”
Our wedding was more beautiful than we could have ever imagined… Knowing we wanted a destination wedding, we were under the gun to find someone to help us coordinate everything from the States. We thought we would interview several people before selecting someone, but Kailey impressed us right away and knew that we were in good hands. She is a very organized and detail oriented. She was great about following up with us and getting us back on track when we didn’t return emails or make decisions due to our busy schedules. She referred us to many vendors she had used in the past, and when she did not have a vendor she sought out the best in the area for us to choose from. We were never disappointed!! On our wedding day it was so nice to be able to relax and know that Kailey had everything under control.
With just 10 people in our total party we wondered if we really needed a wedding planner, however throughout the 4 months of planning, and especially on our wedding day we realized it was a necessity! Everything was so beautiful and stress free. We truly enjoyed the entire day! We would highly recommend Kailey-Michelle Events! She is a woman who puts her heart and soul into her work!
-Kim Borst | Bride [July 11, 2014]
“I was able to FULLY relax without any stress! And that’s a difficult thing for a perfectionist to do!”
We cannot thank you enough for all you did to help make our wedding day a success. Before the wedding I didn’t think it would be possible, but – thanks to you – I can honestly say I was able to fully relax and enjoy the day without feeling any stress about the details. What bride doesn’t feel stressed on her wedding day? A bride that has you as her right hand! From help with ideas and planning, to early morning set up, to your eye for perfecting decorative details, to keeping things running on schedule – without you, the day could not have gone as smoothly and beautifully as it did. When I walked into the reception hall, I was so excited about how perfectly you had brought my vision into reality. And the ceremony site on the patio was more beautiful than I could have imagined. It was all exactly what I had hoped for: natural, relaxed, and sophisticated.
Throughout the event I knew you must be everywhere, but I hardly saw you anywhere! I am so thankful for all of the behind-the-scenes work you did. It was a huge weight off my shoulders to know that I could leave everything in your capable hands. And that is a difficult thing for a perfectionist to do! You were consistently professional, assertive, kind, and discreet. Kailey, you truly exceeded my expectations. I would recommend you without reservation to my friends and family. Thank you again.
-Melanie Moerman | Bride [May 11, 2011]
“She made it so EASY for me!

–Chelsea Procyk | Bride [July 10, 2009]
“She handled EVERYTHING! Kailey has sold me on wedding planners”
We had not planned to engage a wedding planner for my daughter’s wedding. But Kailey and has sold me on wedding planners!
She artfully helped create a breathtakingly beautiful environment, implementing my daughter’s ideas, adding elegance and class, as well as masterfully coordinating the wedding and reception. Kailey was professional and efficient, respectful, easy to work with, with seemingly boundless energy. Plus she is loads of fun, helping us all relax and enjoy this momentous occasion! If there were any problems I was completely unaware of them – she handled everything. I wholeheartedly commend Kailey-Michelle to you.
-Carol Moerman| Mother of the Bride [May 11, 2011]
“An INFECTIOUSLY loving heart and incredible talent!”
Kailey, you understood the classic elegance that I saw in my head, even when no one else could!

You inspire the pretty in all of us through your infectiously loving heart and incredible talent!

“Do yourself a BIG favour and hire this woman!”
Kailey, you rocked our wedding!!! From the minute I first her I didn’t have a doubt in my mind we’d be lucky to have her on our side. The day she created for us was amazing; so gorgeous and I appreciate what a super organized gal she is. No question she made our lives much easier. Do yourself a big favour and hire this woman!”
-Laura Fergusson | Bride [September 19, 2014]
What industry experts are saying about Kailey-Michelle….
“There almost aren’t words to sum up how TALENTED this girl is!”
I’ve been to many, many weddings and not one stands out to me like a KME wedding. Kailey-Michelle puts a stunning wedding together like you wouldn’t believe and has a ridiculous talent for turning every stressful situation into something totally great. She’s calm, cool & bubbly every minute of the wedding day, even if she’s been there for 16 hours. She doesn’t miss a beat. You just can’t go wrong with Kailey Michelle Events!
-Amanda | Pink Lotus Photography [September 17, 2014]
“One of my FAVOURITE PEOPLE to work with in the industry!”
Probably one of my favourite people to work with in the wedding industry. Everything she does is professional. Every bride that Kailey Michelle works with seems to be very comfortable knowing that their day is in the hands of someone who really cares about their wedding and someone who they can trust to make it a wonderful experience for all, including the DJ!

“Authentically passionate. Of great integrity. The PICTURE of professionalism!”
Kailey, of Kailey Michelle Events was the picture of professionalism on our styled bridal shoot. She is authentically passionate about each event and brings a vast amount of industry knowledge to the table. Kailey takes a leadership role and embraces each task without taking charge – although I’m sure she would do so if desired. She is respectful of clients’ wishes and vendors interests alike.
Kailey has a warm, personable demeanour and cares intimately about each detail. But most of all, she is a person of great integrity. She has “sold” me on working with event-planners, if only each were as energetic and stylish as herself! KME was an absolute joy to work with and I would be excited to share another event with Kailey Michelle Events.
– Carmen Adams | FRESH Photos [April 26, 2012]
One of THE BEST in the business!

“It’s obvious how much you deeply CARE!”
I wanted to tell you how fantastic of a wedding planner you are! It was so satisfying watching you work and it’s obvious how much you deeply care! It definitely brightens my day.
-Victoria Kuzma | Vancouver Mobile Hairstylist [October 6, 2011]
“Poised. Classy. Creative. More like a SUPER WOMAN!”
When I first met Kailey-Michelle we had a great consultation meeting simply to just get to know one another, and from there I was hooked. I knew I had to work with this woman! We had the opportunity to collaborate on an editorial shoot and I knew I could easily recommend Kailey to any of my brides.
A wedding day has a lot of details and on the day of, sometimes these events need to happen quickly – Kailey has the drive, and can adapt to any situation to accomplish the best result. She ultimately has the ability to make sure things get done. A quality that I highly value!! Kailey is more like a super woman than an event co-ordinator, she can truly can handle anything and with poise.
If I were a bride looking for an event co-ordinator I would want someone who is responsible, appropriate, poised, classy and creative – all of these are Kailey-Michelle. Not only is she the ultimate at handling any situation, she has a beautiful creative eye to turn your event into a unique atmosphere. Bringing together beautiful pieces, colours, flowers and taste to create a one of a kind effect. I highly encourage couples to choose Kailey, it will be the best decision you will make.
Kailey-Michelle is simply amazing.

“Not a single detail missed!”
Working with Kailey Michelle was such an absolute pleasure; professional, organized and friendly. From our first onsite meeting with the client, all the way through to the wedding setup and follow-up not a single detail was missed. As an event designer, it’s a good feeling to know the wedding planner is paying attention to the bigger picture but also never failing to miss any of the finer points of the event.

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works, and give glory to your father who is in heaven.” ~ Matthew 5:14 – 16
