 I am happy to refer your professional wedding & decor services. You really took the time to listen to our needs and put together a package that was just right for us. You were pleasant to work with, creative, and did everything you could to keep up with our expectations. You were open to suggestions and allowed us to explore all our available options. At the end of the day, our wedding reception hall was so elegantly decorated, that it exceeded our expectations. Thanks

 Thank you Weddings by Evanescents for turning my dream wedding into reality! When I started planning the details for our wedding, I realized that although I had an overall vision I had no idea how to get there. I met with Nikki and Sharlene who seemed to make the whole wedding come together in one meeting. They had ideas for everything I was imagining and made it all come together. Three weeks before the wedding, we found out that our venue near Dead Man’s Flats had been flooded during the June 2013 floods, and could no longer hold our wedding. We were devastated, not to mention completely stressed out about having to re-plan everything in three weeks. When I told Nikki, she invited me to come over and meet with her so she could help. She was absolutely amazing about getting everything back on track and making sure all the bases were covered. On the day of the wedding, I had originally planned to do all the decorating and set-up with the help of family and friends, but with the change of venue and all the extra work it had become too much. Nikki and her hair stylist jumped in the day of the wedding and helped with the decorating and set-up. They made it look better than I ever could have on my own. After that was done, they did the hair and make-up for myself and four bridesmaids, and everyone looked wonderful. My only regret is not hiring them for all coordination, set-up and take down from the very beginning. Trust me, it is money well spent. Thank you so much Nikki and your amazing team, I could not have done it without you!

We were married on New Year’s Eve 2012, and planned our wedding in an exceptionally accelerated time frame – 6 months. In an effort to save some money we had set up various rentals through different vendors, none of which were being very effective communicators, and while in the home stretch of planning Christmas, 2 birthday parties and a wedding for 100 people, we had two vendors completely fall off of the radar. Nikki came very highly recommended and we jumped on the opportunity to meet with here right away. With a month’s notice she asked what our vision was “Blue, White, snowflake and Sparkle” … Nikki turned around and offered a plethora of options to make our new year’s eve soirée a complete success. Not to mention that her prices were very reasonable, and her products are top quality. The fact that Nikki was basically on call all day for any DIY disasters, and technical support during set up. Simply amazing. I should also mention that we were blessed to have “one stop shopping” with Nik, because she also did our make up the day of, myself and 6 bridesmaids left the salon looking perfect, and by the end of our morning together, I felt like Nikki and Jenn should have been throwing on their blue dresses to join us as a part of the party. They are so warm, kind and fun, it truly felt like we were among friends. I cannot thank you enough for all that you did to make mine and kev’s day such a success, I will personally recommend you to everyone I know. xo

My husband and I decided to get married out of town and booked our venue in Kelowna.   I had thought we would just do everything because it would be “so fun.”  About a month after that decision I knew it was not they great time I had planned, that is when I called Nikki.  She is such a gem.  Not only is she a real professional but she is warm, thoughtful and caring.  She offered advise, asked questions that I had not even thought about and guided us through the process with ease.  Trust me when I say that hiring Nikki will not be something anyone would regret.   Nikki handled our set up and take down, organizing our day off deliveries and the makeup and styling for myself and my bridemaids.  It was all beautiful!  Just having her around has a very calming and positive effect.  Hiring Nikki was the best decision I made for my own well being, I urge all other brides to do the same so you can have fun on your big day and let Nikki do all the planning!

My bridal party consisted of six beautiful women, with very different degrees of makeup and hair expertise. My concern was pulling everybody together as a cohesive unit with everybody looking gorgeous but not over-the-top. Enter Nikki, (makeup) and Amanda (hair) –  what a team! The ladies showed up in Canmore bright and early with tons of energy and ideas. Nikki really took the time to adjust the make up colors to each girl’s features and look, as did Amanda with the hairstyles. I didn’t give them a lot of direction other than the overall feel that I wanted and as very fashionable women themselves they created looks that were modern, classy and appropriate for such an event. My girls looked unbelievable!

Looking back, I could not have imagined our wedding day without Sharlene as our  Day of Coordinator. Best wedding decision ever! The last thing that a bride needs on the most important day of her life is stress… And she certainly took the stress off my shoulders! I put trust in Sharlene and new that the day would go by without hitch, and that it did. I didn’t have to worry about a single thing! Her attention to detail was exceptional and her management and organizational skills contributed to our remarkable day! I met with Sharlene on several occasions to discuss all of the details, and every element was flawless and executed exactly as we had discussed. From the rehearsal and church ceremony to our wedding favors and every not tied on every chair, everything was breathtaking! We received many compliments on how amazing everything was and I cannot take all of the credit. Without Sharlene I think I would have turned into a bridezilla! Luckily, I had her in my corner. I am forever grateful! I would highly recommend the ladies of Weddings by Evanescents to couples getting married and looking for a stress-free day!

Nikki and Nicole brought a combination of talents and expertise to our Mexico destination wedding. Not only did they do my bridal makeup and the entire wedding parties, but they seamlessly orchestrated the day of events and assisted with the pre-planning. Their expertise and experience with wedding makeup and tips for making sure that you look picture perfect in your wedding photos was wonderful. Everyone looked beautiful and flawless even in a hot humid climate. They were involved in the pre-planning activities with the on-site wedding Cordinator, pointing out missed details and providing direction/timing/scheduling. Their attention to detail ran through to the day of activities, assisting with everything including the set up of the reception location. I can’t imagine the day without their help! All of this made our special day, extra perfect. Nikki and Nicole, thank you so much for all your help making our day stress-free.

My husband and I were excited to have Sharlene Coulter as our wedding Cordinator on our big day because we knew that all of the details (big and small) would be looked after. We could completely relax and enjoy the festivities knowing that Sharlene had everything under control. During the rehearsal and the wedding day, she made us feel relaxed and taking care of. Everyone loved her willingness to help and her attention to detail. Even among the chaos, Sharlene still  had a smile on her face. We are so grateful that she was part of our day. Our wedding was perfect in every way and incredibly memorable – we couldn’t have pulled it off without her! Thank you Sharlene!

As a bride, it was important to find a coordinator who cared as much as I did about my wedding day. From even the smallest detail, Sharlene handled everything. She help me to stay on time and organized and gave me the confidence to enjoy my day knowing everything would be taking care of. She took initiative and handled details I didn’t even think to ask her to do. As a natural leader, Sharlene is passionate, dedicated and approaches everything with an incredibly contagious enthusiasm. Having Sharlene as my wedding site coordinator was hands-down the best decision I ever made. Ask yourself on your wedding day,  where do you want your focus to be? Sharlene is the best investment you can make.
