Lisa is truly one of the best planners in vancouver

I first noticed Lisa and ShingWeddings team in another wedding where I was helping with shooting photos and capturing their special day. Lisa went above and beyond what most planners do, she took care of the photographers and other vendors and ensuring that we knew the schedule and certain pivotal moments ahead of time. She coordinated the Chinese tea ceremony very well and taught the wedding party what to do during the ceremony thoroughly during rehearsals, so everyone knew their roles and the wedding was smooth-sailing. I remembered her, and then referred her to another close friend who was also super happy booking her as a planner.

Fast forward two years later after meeting her and seeing her work, I got engaged! I hired her ASAP and she was our Same-Day Coordinator. Since my engagement I saw her work in three other weddings, and the common denominator in terms of feedback was that “She took really good care of us.”

On the day of the wedding, she held the fort for my wife and I, and assisted with our other vendors in ensuring our venue was set up on time at the PipeShop. Her other team members Alex and Lorraine did a great job keeping us calm and guiding us throughout the day. We had a 14-hour wedding and she stuck with us from the early-morning and was one of the last people to leave the venue, picked up some things that we left behind and made sure we got it after the wedding, safe and sound.

The stand out qualities that Lisa possess are that she gets the job done, objectively and in a way where it’s conveyed as if there were no mishaps/problems at all. She was our mental bodyguard most importantly, and worked harmoniously with all the other vendors involved throughout our wedding day. It was easy for my wife and I to put full trust in Lisa throughout the day.

Our MCs had their very first gig as MCs at our wedding and Lisa helped hold their hand throughout. We almost didn’t do our sparklers but the ShingWedding team helped us with gathering enough lighters and tealights, and assist our many family and friends with this special moment. Our best photo wouldn’t have been possible without Lisa and the team
