"Ashley and Elizabeth, I don’t even know how to put into words just how thankful we are for everything you have done for us over the past year. The wedding could not have been more perfect and from our perspective, seamless! You both allowed us to completely enjoy the day and take in every moment. As a PR professional and a control freak (haha!), I don’t think I have ever felt so comfortable, confident, and at ease. We never had to stress about any detail, and for that we are forever grateful. I cannot tell you how many people have come up to us to say just how amazing of a job your team did. They said, and I quote, “it was the most beautiful and most fun wedding they have ever been to!”
Some words that people have used to describe yesterday to us are beautiful, elegant, classic, intimate, stunning, amazing and a total party. I think if we looked back on what we wanted people to feel that is exactly what we accomplished."
"We wanted to thank you so much for everything that you have done to make our day special. Our wedding was not only memorable for us, but it seems it was impactful for many of our guests as well! What a special time. We are so appreciative of the work you did to pull it all together - of the vendors you brought forward, of your team, of the way you totally transformed the space. We are still in dreamland around just how special it all was!"
"Ashley and Tahnee, thank you for all of your help in orchestrating our beautiful wedding. David and I were so impressed with how gorgeous the room looked and how seamlessly the day went. It couldn’t have been more close to perfect. All of our guests had so much fun and thought the ceremony was so heartfelt and the reception was so elegant. You brought my vision to life and I’m so pleased with how everything turned out. David and I feel like our wedding reflected the two of us so well. We can’t wait to relive the day through pictures and video. Tahnee, thank you for being such a pleasure to work with. You were such a calming presence for me, you were so organized, and thank you for being there to answer phone calls and taking care of everything with such poise. Thank you both for everything."
“I wanted to thank you for all you did in making Andrea and Andrew's wedding such a special day! It was - according to my friends - the best wedding they have been to in a long time!! Everything was exactly as Andrea had always envisioned her wedding day to be and you and your team were an integral part. All of us were able to enjoy the day without any worries. And what a day it was!! Absolutely perfect! Again, thank you so much for planning such a memorable occasion.”
“From the very beginning, we were blown away by your immense attention to detail and incredibly calming and positive attitude throughout the entire wedding planning process. Not only that, but the amount of care you put into ensuring that everything would run smoothly was very comforting - we always knew with 100% certainty that we were in the best of hands.
Our entire wedding weekend was magical and perfect, and we know that you were a huge part of that. From doing the signage and florals so elegantly, to setting up the ceremony and reception sites and turning an open wooden structure in a forested setting into a beautiful wedding venue filled with ambience, to managing the logistics of having a wedding on an island so seamlessly - you really were there every step of the way. This truly allowed us to be fully present and enjoy each and every minute of our wedding day. Our guests were raving at how beautiful everything looked and how smooth the entire day ran, and we know and appreciate how much work you put into making that happen.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to Ashley and the entire Spread Love team for being such an integral part of the entire planning process and an absolute pleasure to work with!”
“Ashley, thank you for your impeccable advice and giving us the confidence to bring our ideas to life. Right from our first meeting you listened, advised and organized to make sure we got the wedding we wanted. You have such a lovely way with people; with your calm demeanour and clear love for the job. Your correspondence, coordination and help with the decor and styling was exceptional and exceeded our expectations! From the signage, to the beautiful florals and tablescapes, everything was exactly what we had discussed and envisioned. Every guest in attendance was blown away by the splendour and elegance of our décor and were amazed at how it was “so us”. We also appreciated all your behind the scenes efforts (meetings, emails, spreadsheets), but most importantly, what we are most thankful for was that on our wedding day, Ravi and I could relax and truly enjoy every moment of the day. It was such a relief knowing that there was an amazing team present, co-ordinating everyone and making sure all went to plan - which it did!
Ashley – We would like to extend our most heartfelt thank you for the role you and your team played in turning our wedding day into a spectacular and stunning celebration of our love. We couldn't have wished for more!!"
"Thank you again for such a superb job – both on and in the lead up to our wedding day. The wedding day was literally the best day of our lives, and you had a huge part in that.
You were an absolutely joy to work with from start to finish, and your style and attention to detail is simply unparalleled. We are so lucky to have found Spread Love, and would recommend you to any other couple looking for a wedding planner, stylist and/or “day of” coordinator. You were literally our best investment!"
"Hiring a planner saved our lives. If it is possible with your budget, we highly recommend it. Our planner was such a great support. She kept us focused, made sure we were on track and took care of all the details, decor, organizing and scheduling, down to every minute on the day itself. We knew we would have lots of guests coming in from out of town, and not having to stress about all those tasks, meant we could enjoy our time with everyone leading up to and after the day. With her in charge the day went so smoothly, was planned perfectly and styled beautifully."
"Working with Spread Love Events to help us plan our wedding was the best decision Jeff and I made throughout the entire planning process. From our first meeting, Ashley understood our vision and helped guide us through every step of the way. Planning a wedding can be overwhelming, but her attention to detail and creative ideas helped make our vision come to life. She was involved in every detail of the styling, and even included some beautiful surprise elements that we absolutely loved seeing on the day of. Working with someone like Ashley, who has an incredible sense of style and aesthetic, helped us create the day of our dreams."
"She kept us focused when things got hectic and always reminded us that nothing was more important than our happiness on that day. When our wedding day finally arrived, Jeff and I were so thrilled with how all the details came together. Our guests instantly saw “us” everywhere they looked, and we could not have been happier with how our special day turned out. Ashley played such an important role in our lives that day, and we are so happy that Spread Love Events helped make our wedding so memorable."
"It wasn’t easy planning everything with us being based overseas and on the move and we really appreciate your dedication to work around our schedule. Thanks for taking on board all our ideas and special requests, for securing the spectacular venue in unlikely circumstances, for handling every little detail of the weekend and for putting together a dream team of partners leaving us to enjoy a perfect wedding day. Many of our guests commented on the thoughtful little touches and how intimate the day felt, something not easy with 120 guests."
"Most importantly, thank you for taking the time to get to know us and figure out exactly what we wanted. It was a magical day, complete with sunshine and shooting stars, a day that we’ll remember for a lifetime."
"How can we ever thank you for making Lindsay and Vince’s wedding such a perfect day. You thought of every detail, which meant that we didn’t have to and could guests at our own event. The staff at the Edgewater told us they had never dealt with anyone more professional, organized and pleasant than you, Sarah. You were totally on top of every detail, but never visibly. We are so grateful for all you did and can’t imagine trying to do a wedding without you."
“It’s one thing to dream up the vision you want for your wedding – imagining all the little decor details coming together and being perfect…..it’s another to have this actually come true. Sarah and Ashley, our wedding was beautiful beyond words all thanks to you two. You nailed it!! Everything was thoughtfully placed and considered, but not at all overdone. From the florals, to the ribbon wands, our guest book table, to dessert layout, you name it….absolutely beautiful work. Many many thanks for helping us create our vision and then going and making it real. I wish Spread Love Events all the success in the world.”
“I am in love with Spread Love Events and here is why: All I could contribute was a favoured colour, a few emails with “about us” type stuff and a single phone conversation. With less than two weeks notice they planned, organized and created the most breath taking decor and ideas that I have ever experienced. The amount of detail was amazing, the “Love Grows” theme was better than anything I could have dreamed up! My advice to brides; Give them an idea of who you are, share some personality and preferences and then step back and let them run with it. You will be stunned!”
“From day one, we knew we were in good hands with Ashley and the team at Spread Love Events. Their attention to detail, style/taste and most importantly, their calm demeanour was evident in our very first meeting.
They listened to every one of our ideas, providing feedback and suggestions when needed, and then set about making our dream wedding happen. Not only did the Spread Love team keep our wedding planning on track, they acted as a valuable sounding board during the craziest times for a soon-to-be bride and groom. They helped suggest amazing vendors that not only fit within our budget but also brought the same level of quality and professionalism as Spread Love themselves.
On our actual wedding day, Ashley and her team took away all the stress and craziness, allowing us to enjoy every special moment of the day. Everything was perfect. Many friends and family stated that it was the most organized, stress-free and beautiful wedding experience they've ever been involved in.
The team at Spread Love made our dreams come true.
We cannot thank Spread Love Events enough and we would definitely recommend them to anyone planning on tying the knot!”
“There is absolutely no way we could have planned and pulled off such a beautiful and personal wedding, especially from overseas, without the vision, support and expertise from Ashley and the Spread Love Team.
They went above and beyond, and completely impressed us with their comprehensive and detailed advice and support every step of the way - from helping us select a stunning venue when we couldn’t be there view them ourselves, to pulling together a gorgeous and cohesive style vision that was more beautiful than we could have imagined, to being a true life saver and support helping ensure every last detail was taken care of and ran smoothly on the days running up to and day of our wedding.
The bespoke stationary design by Elizabeth, the breathtaking florals (our guests are still talking about them!), the thorough day-of itinerary, even making sure we got a few minutes to escape and just take it all in together, every single little detail was thoughtfully taken care of. The Spread Love team have beautiful taste, brilliant ideas, exceptional service, and were an absolute pleasure to work with. We couldn't recommend them highly enough!”
"You helped us honour a significant time in our life. The night was everything we hoped for and more. This is in large part because we had such great guidance from you all the way along. We appreciated you taking time to get to know our story and asking about our ideas for the evening. You advice from start to finish was thoughtful, time-saving and helpful. Your calm confidence throughout made the process of planning simplified and enjoyable. You helped us create a beautiful, personal night in a great venue and then gave us the time to share it with our closest friends and family. We are so grateful for your help. We will cherish the memories!"
EMBRACE THOSE TRADITIONS THAT FIT AND CREATE NEW ONES THAT ARE ALL YOUR OWN. IT’S YOUR DAY.
It's All About You
We get to know you, find out what you love and how you fell in love, and thread those details into your day. From our very first meeting, our goal is to inspire and bring your vision to life. We’ll guide you along the way as together we make the decisions that reflect you and your priorities.
Our goal is to create an experience that is as enjoyable as it is beautiful. We want you and your guests to feel cared for from the moment you arrive until the last person exits the dance floor.
It takes hundreds of hours to plan and design a wedding. We look forward to the opportunity to spend this time focussed on you. We take on a limited number of Full Service Wedding Planning clients each year in order to give you the care and attention your celebration deserves.
Our Full Service Wedding Planning offering is our premier service for couples who want all of our love. We will take care of every last logistical detail so you can enjoy the journey from “yes” to “I do.”
Starting with your venue and understanding your vision for the day, we’ll spend time getting to know you and your desires so we can take all of the necessary steps to execute a stress-free planning process followed by a flawless celebration!
Just some of the details we take care of include management of your wedding expenses and payment schedules, curation of your entire vendor team including contract negotiation and review, development of timelines and production schedules, on-site coordination of your rehearsal, overseeing event set-up and breakdown, and hands-on support for you and your family both in the lead up to and on your special day.
Our Wedding Coordination service (also known as Day-of Coordination, but so much more) is for the couple that desires to take on the initial wedding planning but wants someone to answer questions and hand it all off to come the big day.
We will meet at the beginning of your planning process and be available to answer questions and provide support throughout as you develop your budget, secure your vendors and make all of the initial decisions. We will provide you with our wedding planning tools, including a budget template, checklist, and Wedding Day itinerary to guide your planning.
Six to eight weeks before your wedding we will officially step into the coordination role and take the details off of your hands! We will tie up any last minute items, confirm with all of your vendors, create a to-the-minute wedding day timeline, and coordinate your ceremony rehearsal.
Come your wedding day, we’ll be on hand to oversee the set-up (and breakdown) of your special day, care for your guests, as well as manage every logistical detail and vendor so you can relax and enjoy the magic with your family and friends!
Our Event Design service is all about envisioning and creating the visual components of your celebration.
Together we’ll dream up the design elements to create the atmosphere and experience you desire. From signage and florals to table design, floor plans, linen, lighting, rentals and custom decor - no detail is overlooked!
Our service begins with a design briefing session in which we’ll get to know you and your style and discuss your vision for the day. We’ll then prepare an inspiration board to help focus the event’s overall theme, color palette, decor and ambiance.
Once we’ve refined the direction and style together, we’ll get to work sourcing, designing, creating and customizing every last detail, including liaising and coordinating with all of your design-related vendors.
Come your wedding day, we’ll be on hand to execute (and breakdown) your beautiful, one-of-a-kind celebration.
