Sweet Words from our past couples
“Hiring Claudia as my day of coordinator was the best decision I could have made! As an event planner I am a bit detailed myself and it was important to have someone I could trust carry out all of my plans. Claudia exceeded all of my expectations! We kept in close contact for the months leading up to the day, and she asked all of the extra questions I hadn’t thought through. She came to my rehearsal dinner to go over the schedule, picked up all of my items on the day of the wedding, set everything up perfectly, and collected and delivered everything back the next day. I didn’t have to think twice about anything she was taking care of which made the day so stress free. THANK YOU CLAUDIA! ”

“Claudia and Chris were like God-send angels for our wedding day! My now husband and I never considered a day-of-coordinator throughout the wedding planning process, but as the day came near, we realized we needed professional help to ensure the day will go smoothly! Even though we hired them as day-of-coordinators, Claudia and Chris went above and beyond and it felt like they were here to give us help and support throughout the month leading up to the day. They prepared a detailed schedule and also contacted all our vendors. Their planning website was also extremely helpful to keep us on track of everything. I would hire them over and over again if I could! They are the sweetest! Everything was well organized and they were there to set-up before I even arrived to the venue. I was so shocked to see my “vision” turn into a reality by these two lovely people. There may or may not have been some hiccups during the day, but at no point was I stressed or concerned because they took care of it. Also note to other soon-to-be-brides. HIRE A COORDINATOR, it’s a choice you won’t regret! In fact HIRE CLAUDIA AND CHRIS”

“We would give Claudia six stars if that option is available! She was with us every step of the way for the past year with her full planning service. Our wedding day was beautiful and everything went exactly as I envisioned. We owe her and her assistant Chris a big thank you! You guys always got our back and had our best interests in mind. Your courteous demeanour really outshines. Our videographer and DJ recommended by Claudia are highly professional and went above and beyond for us just as she did! We are so lucky to have you!”

“We’d like to thank Claudia & Chris for all of their help in making our wedding day a great success! Although we went with the ‘day of’ planning package, we felt as though Claudia & Chris did much more! They were extremely responsive to any questions that we had leading up to the to the day of, and met with us to review our vision and then again to review a detailed outline of how everything would happen on the big day. They were also the main point of contact for all of our vendors, and were available to answer any questions that came up along the way. On the day of the wedding, they helped set everything up, answered any questions that came up, and ensured that everything ran smoothly. We did not have one single issue…at least not that we were aware of! This is exactly how a wedding day should go; any issues were handled by Claudia & Chris, making it a wonderful and stress free day for my husband and I. We would gladly recommend using Claudia Cole Events, and would certainly not hesitate to use them again for another event. Thanks for all of your help Claudia & Chris!”

“As soon as I started planning my wedding, my sister strongly encourage me to hire a planner. To be honest, I wasn’t overly interested. I mean, how hard is it to plan a wedding? Pick the food and the venue, shouldn’t be rocket science. Most venues do all the detailing, I assumed. But my sister persisted and begrudgingly I reached out to Claudia, who my sister had recommended. I really didn’t think I would be using very much of her but I figured I could delegate some Day Of tasks to her. Dress fluffing, limo calling, general bidding, etc. Let’s just say that after going through my wedding – I have no idea how these things happen without a planner! Claudia organised the vendors, the agenda, the ceremony, the decor, the table settings, the gifts, the guests, the food, the flowers … need I go on?? She was so kind and patient with me and my fiancé, even though we constantly changed things, didn’t respond to her emails for days and had no knowledge of virtually anything wedding related. She maintained professionalism and politeness from start to finish, with a really warm and comforting personality that clicked with us instantaneously. Claudia has worked in event planning for years and years and boy does it show. She knows her way in and out of venues and speaks the pastry, AV, decor, catering and service language fluently. Her particular knowledge of hotels was extremely helpful as the resort I choose to host my fancy Muskoka wedding was … well let’s just say only marginally helpful. Having her there day of, working with the vendors and hotel staff and my family and friends, was such a stress off my back. I knew any question Claudia was asked, she’d know the answer to. Claudia really astounded me by solving problems before they happened. She also knew how to solve problems when they did happen (ie finding a garter belt for me with only 20 minutes to spare or fixing my bridesmaids floral arrangement when my florist was mia). I knew that whatever happened, Claudia would be able to handle it with grace, poise and assurance. I was a pretty laid back bride but my wedding wouldn’t have been as successful if it wasn’t for Claudia. Thanks so much CC for making our day one we will never forget!”

“I can not say enough positive things about Claudia and her assistant Chris. We hired them to assist us on our wedding day, but were pleasantly surprised at how accessible they were leading up to the event. They made a formidable, professional, kind and extremely organized team, and I would recommend them in a heart beat! They went above and beyond their traditional roles to make our wedding a smashing success and kept things running on time down to the minute. Hire them, you will not be disappointed.”

“We consider ourselves extremely lucky to have worked with Claudia and Chris in planning our wedding. Claudia is passionate about her work, creative, incredibly organized, and paid close attention to every detail over the six-month planning process – and, of course, on the day of wedding! Chris was incredibly efficient in coordinating a valet service for the event, and on the wedding day, they were both always present and making sure everything was going smoothly.
There are so many choices to be made throughout the planning process. Claudia is an excellent listener and very responsive. She anticipated our needs and guided us through the decision-making, all the while respecting our ideas and choices. Claudia would discuss our options with us, provide expert insight and make sure our vision was carried out. Her comments were always supportive and positive, and she and Chris just found ways to make everything happen!
Most of all, we are very grateful for Claudia’s calm and joyful temperament. Wedding planning is an intensive process, and it can absolutely be stressful, yet Claudia and Chris absorbed our stress and allowed the planning process (and the wedding day) to be fun and hassle-free for us!
We want to thank Claudia and Chris for all of their hard work, and for making our wedding day a smooth, memorable and incredibly fun occasion!”

“Claudia & Chris were great to work with, friendly and accommodating and always gave me helpful tips on where to buy or look for things. Claudia is organized and is a list maker (like myself) and I could right away that I could trust her with my wedding setup for the ceremony and Reception decor and teardown after (and drop off to my parents place the next morning). She always followed up right away and asked the right questions, especially the ones that I wasn’t thinking of. Thank you Claudia & Chris for your great work and helping us on our Special Day”

“We hired Claudia Cole Events for our New Year’s Eve wedding. We cannot say enough good things about Claudia Cole Events. We absolutely loved Claudia and would hire again in a heart beat.
Claudia made us feel instantly comfortable with her. From our first contact I knew she was the coordinator for us. It was obvious she was professional, organized, creative and above all friendly.
She worked seamlessly with all our vendors, contacted them in the weeks leading up the the wedding and created a detailed schedule not only for our vendors to set up but for how the whole day would run. She involved us and asked our opinion at each step so we always felt that our day would be exactly as we have envisioned.
She kept in contact with us the entire month before the wedding. She gave us check lists to ensure we got everything done in time. Her website allowed us to easily track our RSVP’s, meal restrictions/allergies and provide the venue with a comprehensive guest list.
On the day of the wedding I felt completely at ease knowing Claudia and her team were on the job and making every detail of our day come together exactly as we had envisioned. Claudia and her assistant Chris were there for all the vendors setting up, they made sure the ceremony ran exactly how we had planned it, and kept everything running smoothly throughout the night. They even stayed until mid-night to make sure our confetti filled countdown was spectacular.
We think the world of Claudia – she has a real talent and passion for her work. We will definitely be recommending her to everyone we know.”

“We hired Claudia as our planner for day of services. She also helped us set up the schedule and timing in advance. We met before hiring her and knew right away Claudia was the right person to work with. She understood exactly what we needed and did a fantastic job keeping us organized in the month leading up to the day. She was familiar with our venue and also kept track of all our vendors for us. She was available by phone or email and always responded quickly. On our actual wedding day Claudia and her assistant were on time, professional and just made everything run so smoothly. It was EXACTLY what we needed to actually enjoy our day rather than having to stress over and worry about all the last minute details. Claudia made sure we were on schedule the whole day and that our wedding was perfect – I would not hesitate to recommend her!”
