"I am always happy to help another bride and can recommend Hala (and the rest of S. Gurney & Co.) without reservation.

When I first found out about Hala through one of the Vancouver wedding groups on Facebook (I honestly can't recall which one), I had been engaged for only a couple of months but had spent about 6 months prior, doing a lot of research into major vendors. As I have some past event planning experience, I was on the fence about whether to hire a planner or DOC at all (spoiler alert: I am so happy that I did, especially because we planned it all in less than 3 months!). Anyway, after speaking to other brides who insisted that I would regret not having one, I had it narrowed down to two potential candidates. I chose Hala because she not only offered more deliverables for a very reasonable price compared to the other DOC I was considering, she seemed to understand my wedding vision and was a genuinely caring person. On that first phone call I could tell that she was passionate about making each individual wedding day as wonderful as possible. And she more than delivered with mine. I am naturally a pretty anxious person so thought I would be a bundle of nerves on my wedding day but because Hala had everything handled, I was able to relax and enjoy the entire day from start to finish, stress-free. 
Our guests also commented about how friendly and talented she and her team were. I think she mentioned to you that she also coordinated other elements other than just being our DOC. This includes florals, rentals, bar, set-up/take-down, decor, transportation, recommended our baker and found a great videographer when ours bailed the week before the wedding (pretty much everything except for the venue, catering, dj and photography). Of course some things can go wrong at weddings and I'm certain that there were some glitches in my own but I can't even think of anything because Hala is so good at calm, creative, problem solving. That meant that no one came to me with any questions during the day because she was the point person...”

Thank you so much for making our special day run smoothly. You went above and beyond our expectations and we really appreciate it. Alex and I are so thankful that we had to you take over all the stressful aspects of the day. We were both relaxed on the day of knowing that everything was going as planned. You are so friendly to interact with and we loved how awesome you were with helping us figure out the final details. We could feel that you really cared about us and our wedding. Thank you so much for everything, you are a superstar!"
