Kind Words From Heather

I have no hesitation in recommending her!

I can't thank Zoe enough for helping us organize an event that was beyond wonderful! With several of us doing different parts of the planning, Zoe kept us on track with great advice, attention to timing, finding vendors, staying true to what the couple really wanted and putting together an event that integrated all aspects seamlessly and flowed smoothly. On the wedding day her presence was invaluable yet almost invisible. She did a marvelous job and I have no hesitation in recommending her.

Kind Words From Camille

They managed every little detail efficiently!

Zoe did an incredible job in planning our wedding right from the beginning. She was our advocate when working with vendors, was so kind and patient when listening to our ideas. She always provided us with great feedback, and we were so fortunate to have her and her lovely assistant with us on the day of the wedding! They managed every little detail efficiently, and most importantly she allowed us and our families to enjoy the day instead of dealing with all of the little details. I would absolutely recommend Zoe to anyone looking for a professional and sweet planner to take care of their wedding!

Kind Words From Stef

She made sure it happened exactly the way I wanted it!

Zoe took the stress out of wedding planning on a ten week timeline! She was professional, efficient and an overall joy to work with. We had great conversations to line up my vision for my wedding day, and she made sure it happened exactly the way I wanted it. I've never met anyone with such an ability to just "get things done". I highly recommend her to any couple looking for a great wedding planning experience. She will make sure you are able to enjoy the best day of your life by removing the stress!

Kind Words From Olivia And Jacques

Reach out to Zoe -- you won't regret it!

Zoe did an amazing job with our wedding planning! Initially, I thought that I would be able to do everything myself, but Zoe more than proved her worth within the first few days of hiring her. Immediately, she was able to find solutions to tie up the loose ends that I just couldn't figure out. Despite the fact that she had other events to plan (including her own upcoming wedding), Zoe always made us feel like her #1 priority. She is incredibly attentive, detail-oriented, and had so many great vendor connections and suggestions. Even though we live in another province and weren't able to meet her until the week of the wedding, Zoe was always on top of everything and made it so that we were able to relax and enjoy our special time with our friends and family. We are so indebted to her for all of her hard work and for putting on such a smooth event. If you haven't hired an event planner yet, reach out to Zoe -- you won't regret it!

Love, Olivia And Jacques Breytenbach

Kind Words From Laura

Our only regret is not hiring her sooner!

I highly recommend enlisting Zoe as your event planner! She does an incredible job from start to finish - our only regret is not hiring her sooner! Zoe helped us with the last 5 months of planning before our wedding, during which she proved herself indispensable. Zoe was very professional, attentive, and full of wonderful suggestions and guidance.

She promptly got in contact with all our existing vendors and utilized her amazing connections in the industry to complete our vendor team. She communicated efficiently with the vendors on our behalf to ensure everyone was on the same page leading up to the wedding, saving us endless amounts of time. Zoe was key in keeping us stay on track and on time with the decisions and tasks we needed to complete before the big day. On our wedding day Zoe was there to overlook every detail. Any minor hitches in the plan that arose were easily and quickly handled thanks to Zoe's calm yet assertive nature. We were able to fully relax and enjoy the day with our family and friends, knowing that she had everything under control.

I have no reservations in recommending Zoe as your event planner. She will be the first person I contact for any future events of my own!

Kind Words From Vicki And Mitch

Our wedding went on without a hitch!

We just wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you did to make our wedding day truly the BEST day of our lives. We can't even begin to explain how helpful you were. You have been there since the beginning of this long journey to create the wedding of our dreams. And you truly did just that, create the wedding of our dreams. All throughout the process, you were always right there with us... just an email, text or call away. You listened to our vision and provided the best vendors to ensure this vision would come to life. All of the vendors were INCREDIBLE but none were as special as you.

Your company Whitewood Events defied all of our expectations. We don't even know what we would've done without you. You are so organized, efficient, reliable and effective in event planning that it is no coincidence that our wedding went on without a hitch. Most of all, you are such a sweet, thoughtful and caring person. We knew from the beginning that you had one goal: to plan the BEST day of our life. And you did that. So thank you for being you. You truly are one of a kind Zoe and we will be forever grateful for you planning the most memorable day of our lives.

So. Much. Love.
