Bethany and TEAM!
Wow. What a historical event. A mudslide at a wedding?! What seemed like a disastrous day turned out to be the best day of my life all thanks to you and your team. Through the crazy stressed out morning came such peace knowing that everything was taken care of. Not once did I freight about how you would be handling everything as you presented yourself with such professionalism and confidence through our conversations and meetings. I can only assume that this was a first in your career but to me felt like you've seen it all. Thank you for being flexible and thinking fast when needed.
Thank you for sharing your talent and expressing your creativeness with turning the Prestige into a beautiful ceremony AND reception space. Your attention to detail was perfect and captioned my vision beautifully. You and your team made my thoughts and dreams come to life and it was so AWESOME!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts (including the mama's!!) If there is anything that we could ever do to help spread the word of how awesome your business is please do not hesitate to ask. Keep in touch (more pictures to come!)

Finally some downtime... ahh!!! First off, I think I could thank you everyday for the next 10 years for everything you have done for Pat and me. You and Alex did such a great job organizing everything and making everyone feel like they semi knew what they were doing. I truly felt I was in the BEST hands possible and that gave me the opportunity to enjoy my day the way every bride should. I am so amazed at your talent and knowledge with all that goes into planning a wedding and I would be so lost without you! You are the perfect combination of FUN and professional, you made all us girls feel so comfortable and I would HIGHLY recommend you to anyone planning a wedding in the Okanagan. :)
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!
Ryley & Patrick
"You have been such an amazing support to me over the past several months that I feel strange ending our relationship. It�s like I�ve made a new friend, not just acquired a business partner. Thank-you doesn�t seem to be enough. As far as I�m concerned, you went above and beyond my expectations, but after getting to know you, that doesn�t surprise me. Beyond your skill set, your integrity and passion make you the perfect person for the job of wedding planner. I feel truly blessed to have made your acquaintance and hope to keep in touch."
Eva Linttell (Mom of bride)
Bethany!! (And Josee!!)
We absolutely LOVE you!!! You honestly were my saving grace. You allowed us to be so calm on our day. I can't believe It's almost been a week! Take me back. We want to relive that day over and over again. We truly would not change a single moment of the whole day. You helped us pull off the perfect day. Thank you so much!!
Once again, thank you SO MUCH for everything! My parents keep going off about how professional and organized you were. I couldn't agree more!!
Much love girl!!
Michelle & Brad Buskas
I have been staring at your email for a week now trying to figure out the best way to say thank you�and none seem good enough�but I will say it anyways�THANK YOU�just know that I am saying it with the biggest smile on my face and an imaginary hug�
Our day was absolutely amazing and a lot of that had to do with you�and was because of you. You saw our vision and embraced it even with all the little touches you added in it really showed how much you got us and knew exactly what we were after�there were hiccups along the way that were completely out of our control, but I knew the entire time no one would ever notice because you had it all under control. You always had the biggest smile on your face, spreading the love and calm.
Trevor and I got to sit back and genuinely enjoy our day�we were able to embrace and share with all of our family and friends our love�and you made that all possible. We cannot say thank you enough�
We would recommend you to anyone who asked, our day was absolutely perfect�and every day leading up to it, you were so helpful and accommodating�you really just calmed me at every turn�
Thank you thank you a hundred times over�you are absolutely amazing.
Xox Trevor and Kaleena
It's always such a pleasure to work with you, I too, also say Yayyyy! when I know you are involved.
It's always so reassuring to me, as a Marriage Commissioner, to know that you are involved as a wedding planner with a couple's ceremony. Your experience and professionalism are always so important in ensuring that all the details, which need to be looked after, are looked after. Your calm manner, bright and cheerful personality and way of working with your clients and their guests puts everyone at ease - I know that when I am on site with you we're going to have a great wedding! As you know, my last wedding as a Marriage Commissioner is rapidly approaching and I will miss working with you very much. I will value our friendship that had developed over the years very much and I do hope our paths will cross again.
Looking forward to working with you on our last wedding together!
We wanted to say a HUGE thank you for everything that you did for us on our wedding day. We honestly had the best day ever and everything went perfectly. The weather and the ceremony were perfect. I remember being nervous heading up to the ceremony. But as soon as you came around the corner I saw that you were smiling, calm and confident and it totally calmed me down too. Thank you so much for that, you have no idea!!!
The reception was perfect and I was so happy with how everything turned out. Thank you for everything that you guys did for us. It totally took the stress off of everything and we were able to have the best time because of it. We had the best day, through and through, and we couldn't have done it without your help.
All of the recommendations for John, Joel, Barbara and Cheryl worked out sooooo well. Honestly, everything was perfect. Everything was even packed up perfectly. Thank you for so much care and attention, as I'm hoping to sell everything now.
If you are ever around Calgary we would love to go for a drink. We LOVED working with you and are so grateful for all of your help. You are amazing and I would recommend you to anyone!!! We loved our wedding day and have had some many compliments about how great it was, thank you so much for being apart of it! Please pass on all of the compliments to Alex as well, she is awesome!
All the best in the next few months, hopefully we can meet up again soon!! Lots of love,
Ashley and Brett
Where do we even begin? You are amazing and honestly, you made our wedding day so perfect! I can't thank you enough. Everything was just perfect. You made our day run so smoothly and it was hands down the best day of our lives. I keep saying that over and over. Everyone kept mentioning to us how on top and amazing you are. We really appreciate all your help at running our wedding day. Also a huge thank you to your assistant Alex. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!!!
You made my wedding day the best day of my life. I love you for that! You are such a sweet, Kind, caring person and Steve and I are so lucky to have met you.
Wishing you all the best with the rest of your weddings this year, I know you will kick ass! You're amazing :)
Alana & Steven Huzzey
Beth helped make my wedding one of the most memorable days of my life! She listened and took all my ideas and turned it into exactly what myself and my new husband envisioned.. It was magical!! Very easy to work with, great personality, and kept me from going insane!! Would recommend her again and again. Nothing but love for her and her team.
Renee & Stan Brown
Bethany- where do I even start? I can't thank you enough for all of your help on our wedding day. You being there is the only reason I was able to let things go and just enjoy myself. Everything looked just how I had hoped and imagined and the day went so smoothly. You are absolutely amazing and I am forever grateful for you being there on our special day.
Jaime & Jim
Thank you so so much! It was the best day, everything was so perfect and that was in part, a huge part, to all of your hard work! I can be a bit OCD and you literally took all of the stress out of the day, I didn't worry about one single thing because I knew you were taking care of everything. We can't thank you enough for the vendor suggestions, support, communication and hard work you put into our day. If there was anything I would do differently it would only to have been to have you plan the wedding and not just the day of!
Thank you again,
Jess and Brad
You are so amazing. Thank you for making our day so effortless and spectacular. It was honestly more than I could have dreamed! Xo
I still can't get over how perfect our wedding went. If it wasn't for you I know I would have been a ball of stress.
You made my vision come to life. You were definitely the best decision throughout our while wedding process.
I will recommend you to everyone and anyone who is getting married in the Okanagan.
Let's keep in touch xoxo!!!
Chantelle & Derek
I wanted to send you a huge thank you from both Tony and I. It was a pleasure meeting you last summer and working with you on our wedding.
I have no doubt you were the best decision for a wedding planner and the best money spent. I do not know how people get married without you but I imagine it wouldn't be the beautiful, stress free day that we had.
You responded to all my email, texts and calls in such a timely manner. You worked to create the wedding I had envisioned and did it on the budget I had outlined. You were so easy to communicate with and offered as much advice when I asked for it. I appreciate all your knowledge in planning and helping us throw the most fun party and what my family and friends are saying was the most beautiful wedding.
I loved how organize you were and sent timelines as to when we needed to make decisions. You ensured that we were on schedule and the day flowed smoothly. You were a pleasure to have at our day as well as Josie. My friends and family all thought you two were great. I was actually sad when the day was over as it meant the person I had been in contact so frequently over the year would no longer be required, so thank you for being the happy, bubbly and honest person you are. I
would recommend you to anyone and everyone!
Your Inuvik friends,
Alison, Tony and Emerson
Thank you guys again soooo much for everything you did that day and leading up to it! I really can't thank you enough. Without you guys I don't know how we could have coped with set-up (everything looked stunning!), and other logistics. You really did make the day seem to go by so smoothly (not sure if there was anything on the back end that I was in the dark about, but if so I really had no idea! haha).
We've gotten so many comments on how smoothly everything went, and I tell people it was all because of you! (*smile emoticon*) and all our bridal party commented on how awesome you were (I think some of the married friends who didn't have any sort of coordinator were especially blown away that they hadn't thought of it lol)
I honestly can't get over how perfect the day was for us and for our guests. It totally surpassed all our expectations, and we were able to take it in and enjoy it more than I thought we would!
Thank you again and again!! (*smile emoticon*)
xo Jess & Bob
Conor and I cannot thank you enough for your incredibly hard work leading up to our wedding and on the day of. Throughout the planning process, you kept me on track and provided me with guidance every step of the way. On several occasions, I emailed you in somewhat of a panic (remember my recent freak out about the colour of the China?!) and your expertise and problem-solving skills immediately calmed my nerves. After working and planning our wedding with you over the past year, I knew that the big day would be flawless�and it was!
You and your team pulled it off 110%!!! I know that I was probably one of your fussier brides to date, but I was absolutely floored by how spectacular and perfect everything looked on our wedding day. And so many guests commented on how smoothly the day went. It was seriously a dream!
As I mentioned in our speech, hiring you was absolutely the best money we spent on the wedding! I cannot recommend you highly enough. Thank you so much for everything you did for us, helping us to create the most perfect day!
Cherie & Conor McKaigney
OMG, my wedding was perfect, I loved every bit of it.
I would really like to express how thankful I was and am for your help, god you're good! Haha.
I danced my mom butt right off!
Thanks again, you are absolutely amazing, sooooo good at what you do!
Brittany & Rob
Thank you so much for everything you did for John and I, you were honestly the best money we spent for our wedding day.
Peace of Mind Weddings was the perfect choice for Day of Coordination. Bethany, you were absolutely fantastic; from the initial emails, to our initial meeting, to contacting all of our vendors the week before, and finally to being our amazing wedding fairy the day of, we honestly couldn't have asked for more.
We felt completely relaxed the day of our wedding, knowing we were leaving everything in your teams capable hands. You took our decoration vision and matched it perfectly to what we had asked, and even made it more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. The lucky guests that were able to interact with you and your team throughout our wedding to, to those who were lucky enough to share a wedding table with you, all had the most amazing things to tell us following the wedding regarding how wonderful you and your team were. We had heard amazing things about POM Weddings from the venue, and other wedding vendors, and we absolutely couldn't agree more. Thank you for making our wedding day perfect!
Thank you! xoxo
John & Meghan Adcock
Thank you! Omg I can't tell you how amazing it was! What a perfect day! You made it that way and I wish I could relive it over and over!
Michelle & Adam
Grand Prairie AB
Bethany - thank you for helping to make our special day so incredibly perfect! Hiring you was the best investment for the day that I could have made as you allowed me to focus on being in the moment and not spend my time worrying about the little things. I appreciated how you work and making sure that all the details were covered. Having you there on the day gave me a true sense of calm and you definitely lived up to the name of your business! Thank you for being a part of our wedding and making it so memorable for us.
Alexandra and Chris
Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you!
We couldn't have done it all without you! You are so great at what you do. The day was the perfect way to start off our long lives together.
Lindsey & Rob
We can't stop talking about what an amazing job you did. Our wedding day would not have been so perfect without you. You went above and beyond anything we expected and are so grateful to have had you. You orchestrated every little detail and made my vision come to life. You are such an amazing person and your passion for what you do shines through in your work.
Again, THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts, we could not have done this without you. Enjoy the rest of your summer and we will definitely stay in touch :)
Aisha & Sheldon
Bethany is amazing! When we first started planning our wedding we had not planned on having a day of the event coordinator. My fianc� surprised me by hiring Bethany as we were trying to figure out the logistics of the wedding day. I can honestly say hiring Bethany was hands down the best decision. Bethany and Josee made our wedding day go smoothly and we were able to enjoy every moment of our wedding without any stress. Even after our wedding we continue to talk about Bethany and how great she was. Thank you so much!!
Kiyomi and Chris
I have been trying to think of the perfect thing to say to you! I couldn't imagine what our day would have been like without you and Josee, both of you were absolutely amazing. Because of you two our special day was perfect and stress free, Justin and I thank you for all your hard work. You made planning a wedding from a different province easy and always pointed me in the right direction for anything I needed. I will be recommending you to everyone I know who gets married in the future, this was money well spent and I highly recommend every couple has a day of wedding planner.
Thank you thank you thank you!!!
Kat & Justin
4 years ago today, you helped me have one of the best days of my life. I wanted to drop you a line and let you know that you were one of the best things at my wedding. You helped me make that day so precious and memorable. Thank you!!! Thank You!! THANK YOU!!!"
Samantha & Dennis
Thank you so much for all your help! You and your team were amazing and the day ran so smoothly. Both Aaron and I wondered a couple of times throughout the day how a couple could possibly have a wedding without a day of coordinator. We can't imagine how much you did behind the scenes to make the vision of our day come to life and ensure the day flowed. We honestly couldn't have asked for a better day with a better team of people!
Thank you again so much Bethany! We will definitely recommend you to any of our friends who want to get married in the Okanagan!
Aaron and Kirsten
Bethany was exactly what we needed on our wedding day! She was so organized, thought of all the small details and made the entire day go off without a hitch! Incredible job... She went above and behind in all aspects. It truly was a worry free day so we could just sit back and enjoy the moment! Thank you a million times over!
Kristen & Evan
Thanks so much for being part of our day! Without you and your team I don't think things would have gone as
Smoothly as they did. Josee did a fantastic job of everything! She was amazing!
Those girls are more than I could have hoped for and went above and beyond to make sure that Chad and I were at ease. The bartenders were awesome too! They got along great with all of the guests and were right in their helping Josee if she needed anything.
Thank you again so much! I will definitely do my best to keep in touch regularly! Please keep doing what you and your team do! You are all so amazing and any couple would be lucky to have you be a part of their special day! Xoxo :)
Araynia & Chad
I just wanted to tell you what an amazing job you guys did on our wedding. Josee was awesome and went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly. The setup looked beautiful, everything was on schedule and she fixed any little glitch before it became an issue (like removing the stain on Gary�s shirt, and going out to get more mix for the bar before it ran out!). So many people told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to, and it would not have gone so well without all the help from you, Josee and Alex. You guys were truly lifesavers and made for a perfect, stress-free wedding day for us, and our family and friends. Thank you so so much for everything!!
Alysha & Gary
We can't even begin to express our gratitude for all of your hard work, organization, and overall awesomeness!!! Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special. You are worth your weight in GOLD! (like our chargers-love them haha). ?Keep in touch?
Alanna & Reid
Hey to our favorite lady!!!
Beth, Dylan and I want to thank you from our hearts to yours for helping us to plan and set up our dream wedding!! Dylan and I are so pleased with how everything turned out!! You have a true talent for what you do, and we wish you a lifetime of success! We have already referred your Peace of Mind company to many people! We wish nothing but the best for you!!!
Be well Beth, and may happiness and success follow you wherever you may go!

Mr & Mrs. Parkinson!!!!!!!
West Kelowna, BC
Words will not express how amazing Bethany and Josee were. However, two words that do come to mind are "Class Acts". From the moment I spoke to Bethany on the phone a month prior to the wedding to go over details, I knew I had made the best decision for my day of planner. Scheduling, timing, organizing vendors etc was left to them and they are true professionals.
It is amazing to see how my planning fell perfectly into place when I walked into the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. I can honestly say I did not have one single worry throughout the day I as I knew they had it under control. Everything was perfect and at times I thought to myself, "How would we have done this without Bethany and her team?".
Again, thank you for making Sunday June 29th the best day of our lives, we could not have done it without you! Also, thank you for your prayers that it wouldn't rain, the sun was shining and I think you had something to do with it :)
Megan and Brent
Still glowing over a month later! It was such an incredible day and we have had the most positive feedback from all of our guests! Thank you so much for making it feel like a breeze!!! Everyone keeps asking how hard it was to plan a wedding from far away, I keep mentioning you and your team. Thanks again!!
Mark & Jessica
Wow I cannot thank you enough! You were so amazing to work with and you made this whole process such a breeze. I am so greateful I had you there with us on our special day. Thank you for all your hard work and making our wedding day perfect. I wish you all the best and success-you deserve it! Lots of Love,
Breianne & Jordan
Wow we don't even know where to start in our thanks to you. You and your team were amazing and went above and beyond to make our day so special. With the scary start to the day with all the rain and to see those clouds part and having you all totally calm and relaxed waiting for it to pass helped so much with my panic to calm my nerves. Things ran so smooth and flawlessly it was perfect and we want to thank you for sharing in our vision and making everything look so beautiful!!! Thanks again so much
Mark & Amber Hassa
Our wedding was so incredibly beautiful, you truly exceed our expectations. From the dinning tables, to the card table, the apple boxes, the ties on the chairs, just absolutely everything. . . it was so beautiful, like out of a magazine. You pulled everything together so well, with so many thoughtful touches. You were amazing to work with, so prompt with all your emails, so positive and always happy. My family all had such nice things to say about working with you as well. You truly made our wedding feel like a perfect fairy tale, I can't thank you enough. Our wedding day is such a special day in our lives, so I hope that you truly know how grateful we are to you for making it just that much more special and beautiful. Thank you so much, from both of us. Best of luck in the future!
Robyn & Bruce
Thank you Bethany! You were fabulous and we could never have accomplished such a smooth and beautiful day without you.Thank you, thank you, thank you for making the decor look so beautiful and perfect. You made it look exactly what I wanted.
You are the best!
Luv Rachel & Jonathon
Bethany, thank you again for all the hard work you and Alex did to make our wedding such a wonderful day. Everyone was raving about how smooth everything went and how beautiful everything was. It was truly our "Best Day Ever!" We still can't believe how amazing everything turned out and are so happy that we decided with Peace of Mind weddings to co-ordinate this most important day for us.
Mr and Mrs Czeszejko-Sochacki
Thanks Bethany, we couldn't have done it without you. It was beautiful and everyone had a great time! We are believers and if anyone is looking for a wedding planner, "Peace of Mind Weddings" is the way to go!!
Tracy & Shelly *parents of Kelsey & Jeremy*
There are not enough words to express how grateful I am to you and your girls. From day 1 I won the lottery when you were available. Your advice, support & help with all things wedding were invaluable. Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you :)
Victoria & Rafael
Thank you so much for everything you did to make our day so special. As in Kyle's words "you're a goddess"
Once again thank you so much for being part of our day and helping us creat unforgettable memories. I couldn't imagine not having you a part of our wedding, thank you!
Becca & Kyle
Every bride should get to have you as their coordinator! Myself and Bruce were so happy with our experience on our wedding day, as were our guests. Your informed assistance in the planning process ensured that no detail was left unattended. On the day of, I knew that everything would be ok while me and my bridesmaids were getting ready, because you were taking care of business. All things from the d�cor to timing, wrangling guests, dealing with vendors, and pulling photo bombing tourists out of our shots were taken off our shoulders; and that does not even cover half of the wonderful things you did to make our experience the best possible. You were an absolute pleasure to work with, exceeding my expectation and truly providing peace of mind on our special day.
Lyeah & Bruce Fitzgerald

We had a fabulous time! Cheers,
Liis & Chris
You guys did an amazing job! Thank you so much for everything on the day of the wedding. It went so smoothly I can hardly believe it, and I know that had a lot to do with having you and Josee there to keep it all running smoothly for us. We even had a couple of people comment that it was the best wedding they had ever been to.
Bryanne & Mike
Patrick and I really can't thank you enough for your hardwork! You made our special day run smoothly and flawlessly, and actually gave me the opportunity to enjoy myself and relax! You and your team are great at what you do. Please keep in touch!

We wanted to thank you SO much for being our day of wedding planner! We had so much fun working with you and thought you did an amazing job too! Our parents even commented how great it was to have you there! You really helped keep us together and focused! A sincere THANKS! We hope to see you again at some point!
Chelsey & Aaron
I can't thank you and Josee enough for all your hard work. More than a few people commented on how relaxed I seemed on the day of, and I honestly believe that it was because Josee was there to make sure things were running smoothly! Hiring you was the best decision I made! I honestly don't think I could have done it without yours and Josee's expertise!
Bree & Ben
Louise and I just wanted to extend a heartfelt Thank You to you and your staff for all your help with Mark and Carolyn�s wedding. It was a joyous, emotional day for both of us and you helped to make it extra special. Thank you!
Randy and Louise Schellenberg
Thank you and Josee so much for all of your incredible support and amazing skills! I know our day would not have been what it was with out the two of you!
Krista & Michael
Trying to write a testimonial to the wonderful Bethany of Peace of Mind...and I'm in TEARS!!! How do you thank the person who walked beside you, supported and kept you sane during the wedding planning process? The one who answered emails and texts in the wee hours of the morning, or at all times at night, who spent not just hours but DAYS with you on infrequent trips to plan the details, meet vendors, make decisions. What words can truly grasp the depth of gratitude of a bride who worried about nothing on her day because she knew there was an amazing individual there for her doing all the worrying for her. Our day truly went off without a hitch and I know a lot of that was thanks to Beth and her abilities. I picked a planner off the internet based on gut instinct, and I can truly say, I picked the best one around, and we are so thankful we had Beth with us on our day! Love you lady, you're a rare gem of a person, truly beautiful inside and out and I feel so blessed to have had you there as a bride, and still there as a friend. xoxo
Shannon & Adam
It WAS a PERFECT day!!!!!! Darren and I couldn't be happier with how things went....it was exactly the day that we wanted in so many ways!!! I can't thank-you enough for all your help yesterday and in the months leading up to yesterday! It was so amazing to be able to concentrate on Darren and I, without having to worry about the execution! I knew I could trust you to handle everything and make everything perfect!
Wendy & Darren
Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!! You were amazing Bethany. You made the day and the whole week leading up to the wedding stress free. We had the perfect day! Thanks again for all of your help:)
Erin & Graham
I just wanted to express my enormous thanks for your incredible services on Friday and Sunday! You and Chris were worth every last dime and I couldn't have asked for more attentive and thorough services. I hope everything went alright for you guys too. I was completely happy with the way everything turned out and couldn't have asked for a more perfect day.
Love you both and am looking foward to seeing you again.
Mel and Luke
You sure took the stress off of us!! I couldn't have asked for a better day! Thank you so much!!
Angela & Jason
I honestly can't thank you enough for everything you did. I felt that I could enjoy our wedding day and not worry because I knew you were there. It came together exactly how I had envisioned it in my head! Thanks for that! It was a pleasure meeting you and I hope our paths cross again in the future.
Christine & Andrew
Thanks so much for your help and guidance, everything went great. If I could go back and do it again, I don't think I'd change anything (not even the weather, ha). Wishing you all the best in the future.
Amanda & Wes
Thank you for making out wedding day perfect. It would not have happened without you! The bridesmaids were timed perfectly, my dress laid perfectly as I walked down the Aisle, the hall looked perfect when we walked in and every crisis and disaster that I didn't know about until after was taken care of. I was able to enjoy getting married and enjoy Damien. Having you there meant I didn't have any stress! I can't thank you enough for everything you did for us.
Naomi & Damien
Bethany, Thank you so much for everything you did for us. Without your expert knowledge of the Okanagan, we would not have been able to experience such a wonderful and beautiful wedding. Every bit of pre-planning and day-of coordination you showed really exemplified your talents. We would recommend your services to anyone wanting to be married in the Okanagan area.
Your upbeat personality, diligent planning and ability to be available at moments notice could definitely be noticed. Whenever we felt overwhelmed, you were always calm, cool and collected. You were the stability we needed when there was seemingly too much to plan, organize, or execute.
We look forward to the rest of our lives together partially thanks to you,"
Sarah & Mike
Fort McMurray, AB
Thank you very much for helping us with our special day & making sure everything went smooth. You did an amazing job setting everything up & making our vision come to life. Even though we had to go to plan B due to rain everything was just as beautiful. Please give our thanks to the rest of your team. Thank you again :)
Kim & Cory
Thanks again for all your help with our big day - the day was stress free, beautiful and seemed effortless - just as we had hoped. We couldn't have done it without you and wouldn't have wanted anyone else to help.
Shauna and Stuart
Bethany, I can't say thank you enough for everything you did to make our day spectacular!! Throughout the planning process you provided expert advice and assistance in areas where I was unsure and needed an experienced opinion, but you were worth your weight in gold from the night before onward!!! I could feel the stress and anxiety coming on before our rehearsal but the moment you stepped in my focus went back to the amazing day ahead of us. You were there to take care of all the details I hadn't even thought of, and to bring together the vision I had been dreaming of for the last year. Not only did you help us put together a timeline, you made sure everyone stuck to it, and kept all our "opinionated" vendors and participants on track! Your services were by far the best money spent on our wedding, I wish I had another event to plan just so I could work with you again!! You are AMAZING! I had guests coming up to me all through the day singing your praises!! You've been fantastic to work with, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you! I wish I could tell this to every Okanagan bride personally :) Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! I miss talking to you already!!
Tara & Ryan
Fort McMurray, AB
Thank you SO very much for all your help. We truly could not have done it without you. You really were vital in making the day a success and everyone involved mentioned how much they appreciated you and thought you did a great job.
Lori & Jeremy
Thank you for the excellent service you provided Stephanie and Vance Comer on their Wedding Day. When my friends and I decided to hire a Wedding Planner as our gift for the couple, we were very happy to have found you. We appreciate how diligent you were when following up with us. Living in Vancouver and planning a wedding in Vernon, your expertise regarding the location and local vendors was a great asset.
Your �Day Of�
services were amazing. Your dedication to both planning and on-the-spot tasking make the event run seamlessly. The Bride and Groom were able to enjoy their day and visit with their many guests knowing that you were taking care of anything and everything. You made their vision for their wedding possible. I could not have been more pleased with the choice to employ your services to ensure that my friend had the most beautiful day!
Stephanie said that you were the best wedding present they received! You truly do offer�Peace of Mind�
and we will always be thankful for you. I recommend you to everyone I know!
Maureen Lucas-West "Maid of Honour"
I decided I wanted my daughter and son-in-law (as well as myself) to have a stress-free wedding day and got exactly that with the fabulous Bethany. The fee I paid her was some of my best spent money -- ever. This wonderful woman was professional, personable, oh so friendly and knew precisely how to get things done. Bethany, I'm so grateful to you and your assistant Chris for your HUGE contribution in making things flow smoothly and allowing all of us that attended to fully experience this very special occasion. BOOK HER NOW!!!!!
(MOB at Alex and Brodie Godkin's wedding)
We don�t even understand how anyone could have a wedding WITHOUT Bethany. We definitely can�t imagine pulling it off without her. From the first time we met a year before our wedding Bethany has been SO supportive beyond words and so easy to love. Bethany you are amazing and thank you for taking such good care of our special day. Our wedding day was incredible and we are so thankful to have found you. We would recommend you to the Queen!
Kisses & Hugs, The Godkins
Thank you so much! We had such an amazing, stress free day because of you and your services. It was so wonderful to just be able to go off, enjoy the day and not worry about the little things (All the many little things) that needed to be done last minute because of our themed wedding. You got my vision, you completed my vision and your help was sooo wonderful. Thank you again!
Jennifer & Travis
so much for our perfect wedding day! I seriously have no idea how we would have done anything without you. You made our wedding a dream! From the flowers, cake, music, photographer and dinner....it was all so fantastic.
Everyone said you did an amazing job, and they could not believe how great the food was.
You made our day so fantastic, we love you so so much! You are amazing!!!
Love Elisha, Jordan & Toby
Peace of mind on our wedding day was exactly what Bethany gave us! She was very professional and took care of all of the little details to make our day so special. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants their wedding day to be just perfect!

Bethany, words can't say how much I appreciated your patience and understanding.
Thank you so much for being part of our big day. XOXO

Most people have a vision of how they would like their wedding to be. Great weddings bring people together to celebrate with joyful moments, a few tears and lots of fun and laughter. Once Alison and PJ knew what they wanted and that the location centered on Kalamalka Lake we set out to create the perfect experience. None of us live in the Okanagan so it was a �destination� wedding for everyone. The bride- and groom-to-be, mom and dad of the bride and mom of the groom made an awesome team but we needed another team member. Enter Bethany Armstrong � wedding planner extraordinaire. We engaged Bethany through her online site and it was the best decision we could have made. Bethany helped us plan, set out and stick to time lines, find the right people for the right things, engage the right resources, set up for the events and a myriad of other things that are too many to detail. And Bethany became part of the family through her involvement at each of our events. Not only was Bethany essential in helping create a beautiful wedding, she became a friend.
Thank you Bethany from Alison, PJ, Maureen, Ted and Connie

Planning a wedding is probably one of the biggest, most stressful, life events that one can plan for as everything has to be "perfect". Most of us have never had experience planning an event of such proportions and so it can seem like a daunting task....this is where Bethany, our wedding coordinator for the day stepped in to help. We met with Bethany prior to the wedding to discuss details and sort out any potential kinks - she instantly warmed us with her bubbly personality and enthusiasm for making our day stress-free and extra special. Bethany assured us that she would take care of any little hiccups that might arise on the wedding day and that it was of utmost importance that we enjoy ourselves and have a stress-free day.
Well, our wedding day was exactly that, thanks to Bethany's assistance. She helped with decor setup early in the day, made sure that we stuck to the timeline and that everything flowed as planned. She organized all of the wedding party as we prepared ourselves to walk down the aisle in time with the ceremony music; set up programs and directed guests to their seats; and kept speeches and photos on time during the reception. Never once did we have to look at a clock or to someone to ask what to do next - Bethany was always there to guide us. For all of this and much more, we thank you Bethany and sincerely would recommend your services to anyone else looking for a wedding planning coordinator for an upcoming wedding. You made our entire wedding day stress-free and allowed us to enjoy the company of our guests which is what the day should be all about. Thank you again for providing us with "Peace of Mind"!!
Sincerely, Joanne and Chris
Bethany, Thanks to you my wedding day was absolutely perfect. From the morning until the night I was carefree and able to enjoy every moment! I felt such confidence in your abilities to take my vision and make it a reality. I had many guests tell me it was the most beautiful wedding they have ever attended and you can surely take credit for most of that! I was told by the venue that it is very hard to find wedding coordinators that are easy to communicate and work with but my venue was quick to say that you were one of the best!
The little planning hiccups I had along the way were smoothed over quickly with your help, not once did you seem annoyed or put off by my neediness. I really appreciated your calming tones when I was anxious about anything, and I can honestly say that by the end of my wedding planning journey you are no longer viewed as someone I hired but more as a friend of mine. I may not see you often but I trust you, I enjoyed talking with you, and I will think of you when I remember my wedding day.
Nothing but pure happiness, thank-you for absolutely everything!
With love, Shawnee & Cameron Porter

"For those who want �PEACE OF MIND� we highly recommend Bethany. What she has done for us was above & beyond what anyone could expect from a wedding planner. Everyone was very impressed on how smooth & how well the day was orchestrated. She definitely gave us �PEACE OF MIND� on all aspects. Including prior & the day itself she had everything under control with total professionalism. She even reminded us to eat a good steak lunch as it would be a very long day & she didn�t want us to run out of energy. Our day was beautiful & went off without a hitch.
One thing that is not needed on a wedding day is stress which she gently took in hand with enthusiasm. We would have never been able to thoroughly enjoy our day without her expertise, patience, energy & especially kindness.
We highly recommend Bethany to anyone who wishes to have �PEACE OF MIND�.

"Neither Den or myself regret in any way, manner or form, hiring you for the day. We loved your energy, we loved you professionalism and we loved you!!! I am going to hire a big plane to buzz the city every few hours in dedication to you. Also,... would you like a star named after you??? I am thinking that might be a fitting gift for all the hard work you did to make our wedding so beautiful."
Samantha & Dennis
"Thank you so much for pulling the whole day together, honestly we would have crumbled into pieces without you!
Thanks again Bethany, you rocked!"
Gavin & Danielle
"Thanks so much, Bethany! The wedding was beautiful and seemed to go off without a hitch! If there were any problems, you sure took care of it! I can see why you call it Peace of Mind!
Everyone was really impressed with you and how great it looked. Thanks for making our whole day really special."

Bethany was our "day of" wedding coordinator in July 2010 at Lake Okanagan Resort and she more than exceeded our expectations. We didn't worry about a thing and in hindsight, it was the best money we spent. Our family and friends were able to truly enjoy themselves instead of rushing around making sure all of the last minute details were in order. Bethany is very professional and a great listener. Many of people these days lack the sense of urgency that is required to coordinate a time sensitive project such as this and she is able to do so with a smile on her face!
Thank you very much Bethany!

I have known Bethany and her family since 2002 and when it came time to plan our wedding in 2006 she volunteered much to our delight. Since my partner and I live in Florida she had to handle every aspect of our wedding and the reception. She was simply fantastic and did not forget any of the details including having the cake topper hand painted to look like us. Every detail was handled to perfection. She found the locations for both our wedding ceremony as well as the reception and planned our dinner menu. She also booked our hotel for the evening.
It was simply a fantastic job that left us with the best of memories. I still can't thank her enough even now. I don't think she knows how to disappoint.
What she did for us was more than incredible. When we found out a good friend from a long distance away was coming up for a visit in March we changed our wedding date and dropped this bomb on her two weeks before he was to arrive. Not only did this change the time line, we had a very limited budget for her to work with. What she did cannot be explained with words. She organized everything from the hair dresser, flowers, hall, food, justice of the peace, lakefront wedding, photographer and cake on a budget that would seem impossible to accomplish all of this.
It was a beautiful simple affair that we were able to share with family and friends and I am so thankful for all Bethany did for us. Some still tell us that this was one of the best weddings that they have attended. She had a vision and worked with me to make this day such a special occasion and I know she will do the same for every person that chooses to have Bethany organize this once in a lifetime event. Thank you Bethany for everything you have done for us and I know your beautiful heart and desire will make you a success as you embark on your new career path.
