Alison & Devin – August 2014:
Berlyn from BLoved Events made my wedding a special and unique occasion. She is exceptionally creative – helping us to design a theme all around travel, while on a budget. In preparation for the wedding, she supported us to select the best vendors in Toronto, and managed everything leading up to the big day. For the day of, Berlyn single handedly allowed me to enjoy my own wedding – managing any headaches that came up, keeping us on schedule, and supporting the entire cast of characters (managing friends, family and vendors) I would recommend BLoved Events for every bride that wants a flawless, perfect wedding, without any of the typical headaches!
Karain & Derrick – July 2014:
“Oh no, I left the laptop for the slideshow at home!” the bride said to her groom in a panicked tone. “Don’t worry – I’ll talk to the DJ and see if we can get it setup somehow,” reassured the awesome wedding coordinator. (3 minutes later) “We have a laptop and everything’s good to go,” Berlyn announced. (:
We can’t express how thankful we were to have had Berlyn’s help leading up to the wedding and on the big day. Berlyn helped keep us on track all day long so we didn’t even think about the schedule or what was supposed to happen, which made us be truly in the moment and enjoy the day. Her speedy responses were always much appreciated and Berlyn helped us think of little things that we would have missed otherwise. She is very detail-oriented and a calm problem solver, so much so that we didn’t really know about any ’emergencies’ that happened on our wedding day – Berlyn handled everything like a pro. Berlyn and her assistant did such an amazing job with decorating the ceremony and reception space. We received so many compliments from family members and friends about how it looked and how it was a perfect reflection of the two of us. Berlyn’s work speaks for itself. We are so grateful for her skills as an impeccable wedding coordinator and for her reassurance on the big day. We felt so comfortable leaving everything in her hands and we couldn’t ask for more.

We hired Berlyn Lai as our day-of planner. We could not be happier with her. She was AWESOME to work with. Our day would not have gone so smoothly without her. She was on top of everything. She was very organized, more than willing to take on the tasks that we asked of her and she was always smiling. If anyone is looking to have a carefree day, they should definitely hire Berlyn.
Kristina & Andrew – September 2013:
Berlyn did a wonderful job as my day-of coordinator. I also hired Berlyn to manage florals, and all rentals relating to table settings. I had envisioned my centerpieces arranged in vintage jugs, and she sourced a great supplier that offered exactly what I was after. On the day, everything ran very smoothly, thanks to the extremely detailed itinerary Berlyn put together. She liaised with all my vendors to ensure everyone was on the same page, and made sure everyone was where they needed to be at the right time. Overall, Berlyn was incredibly organized, responsive to emails, and provided creative solutions when I was unsure about anything.
Overall, I am so happy with how everything came together on the day, and I couldn’t have done it without the help of Berlyn. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for day-of or full wedding planning services!!!!
Farahnaaz & Alim – September 2013
Anyone that knows how complex an Indian wedding can be, would know it takes a village to make it all happen – or at least Berlyn and her team at Bloved events! We had a 4 day wedding with 600+ guests, multiple events on each day, and Berlyn handled it all with grace and poise. Not only did we appreciate her excellent time management skills, but she exercised her authority without hesitation which is required when dealing with certain vendors. We had also asked Berlyn to pick up the flowers and create the bridesmaids bouquets herself, store them overnight, and bring them for the bridesmaids the following day for use again at the photo shoot. She handled it all with care and they looked gorgeous! Berlyn faced some challenges from the hall but handled it with grace and dignity, and continued to help decorate the washrooms, work with the staff to ensure the décor was in order, and ensured guests found their way to the tables. For those that have been to a South Asian wedding you would know things naturally run behind schedule and I am proud to say we are probably one of the only South Asian weddings that ran EXACTLY to our schedule- that’s success.
An usher, a planner, a decorator, a florist, a friend, an organizer, and a professional all in one bundled polite little package – that’s Berlyn!
Vivian & Jeff – August 2013
Guess what? I’ve been married three months. And as the festivities have died down and we can adjust to life as a happily married couple, none of this would have happened without the love and support from our friends and family. As I look back on our year leading up to that special day, a huge reason for our wedding success stems from our wedding planner Berlyn Lai.
If anything goes wrong, it shouldn’t be the Bride and Groom who need to answer or take care of these details. That’s where Berlyn comes in. You may not know it but lurking in the background, commanding and directing the troops to make the day itself run smoothly is a dedicate and passionate professional, eager to make a couple’s dream come true. She’s the puppeteer, the mastermind, the chess player 3 steps ahead. She’s the one you want handling all the issues, problem solving and most importantly, fixing it so you just smile, laugh and feel like a Hollywood celebrity on your special day.
To Berlyn: the day could not have happened without you and your efforts. Your professionalism, dedication and passion made the day run extremely smoothly.
Thank you for making our day memorable and stress free.
Jeff and Viv

Berlyn, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping to make our wedding day so organized, memorable and special.

We are forever grateful for your professional services but most of all, for the new friendship we have gained. We cannot wait to recommend you to all the engaged couples we know because you are truly the best of the best!

Andrea & Dirk – August 2013:
Planning a wedding overseas quickly became very overwhelming for us and we knew we needed a lot of help and fast. From our first online meeting with Berlyn we felt all our wedding planning stress lift off our shoulders and knew we were in good hands. Berlyn really knew how, in the kindest of ways, to light a fire under our butts to start different areas of planning and, in the most gentlest of ways, to crack the whip when we were procrastinating, which happened a lot :p
The big day could not have turned out any better. With all of our “i’s” dotted and “t’s” crossed and every minute of the day planned and scheduled we had no worries, except if the other would show up at the altar or not 😉 We still have friends and family raving about how wonderful it was and how much fun they had months later. In the words of my mother in law “it was a fairy tale wedding”, and we could not agree more.
Berlyn, from the bottom of our hearts we truly thank you for everything you had done to make our wedding the most magical day ever. You really went above and beyond our expectations and for that we are so grateful. If anyone is considering to work with Berlyn do not hesitate and book her now before some else snatches her up, you will not regret it. With her talent, enthusiasm, professionalism, warmth and tenderness we predict much deserved success for Berlyn.
Berlyn, we could not have done it without you.
Love and thanks,
Andrea & Dirk
David & Carolina – August 2013:
On the day of our wedding, everything went so smoothly and even ran ahead of schedule. As the wedding couple, we had absolutely nothing to worry about, and it seemed like the entire day was running itself (which I KNOW was not the case). The cake and flowers arrived on time, the banquet hall was beautifully set up and decorated for the ceremony, and the entire wedding party was aware of their jobs. Small jobs and details that were key to making our day so special we would have never initially even have thought of had it not been for Berlyn, and not only did she help us think of these small details, she made sure everything was executed without a hitch.
In summary, Berlyn was a pleasure to work with. Her professionalism, attitude, competence, friendliness, and willingness to help made us forget that she was even working on our wedding day. She blended right in with the guests, yet managed to ensure that all events were running on time. Her cheerfulness and thoughtfulness throughout our wedding planning guaranteed that our wedding day was memorable, enjoyable, and how we wanted it to be.
Hiring Berlyn to be your wedding coordinator, either to help you plan or run your wedding day, will be one of the best wedding decisions you will make.
