And the story goes like this...
A long distance relationship is very hard for some people. I (Jasper) living in Montreal Canada and her (Cheryl) living in London United Kingdom. With faith, trust and a lot of patience, was a big key to our love story. We managed to keep our relationship going and brought it to the next level. The years went by and still In love, she came to visit me one summer and after 6 years I finally propose to my wife (Cheryl). The look in her eyes, for me, was priceless.
And now, my biggest question is about to come.
How in the world are we going to do this? Cheryl was all the way in the U.K and I was in Montreal. After witnessing my friends wedding back in October 2012, Jonathan and Nica (which KASALNY organized), I just had to ask. Did you get any help? And with no hesitation they said yes. "KASALNY is the way to go!" they said. Knowing the success of their wedding and knowing that KASALNY was doing another one, in january 2013, to my best friend Bryan, which is now married to Leanne just told us "it's all worth it". And it sure was Another "EPIC" success.
Meeting with Lyna, founder of KASALNY wasn't just an everyday meeting it was more like an adventure, a journey, and importantly where your ideas and dreams become reality. Every small idea we had, Lyna elaborated it and bursted with more and more ideas which brought it to the next level. We came up with a travel theme, then Lyna brought in every aspect of travel, from an airport Lounge, all the way to her team being stewardess. Her collaboration with our in house venue co-ordinator, was very organized and on point. They were very sceptical of her, and after working with her they even said and I quote "she has been the best WEDDING PLANNER they have worked with."
You not only get a wedding planner who can carefully negotiate for you, or who books vendors for you, your journey with KASALNY is about having YOUR dream of a perfect wedding become a reality from the smallest de
You not only get a wedding planner who can carefully negotiate for you, or who books vendors for you, your journey with KASALNY is about having YOUR dream of a perfect wedding become a reality from the smallest details and personal touches.
The day of the wedding practice, someone said to me "are you guys nervous yet?" We said "no" they asked why not. We replied "because we have KASALNY here, they will deal with all the stress". Again, the day of the wedding someone asked my wife the same question. She took a breath and said calmly"no I'm actually ok!." Knowing that the lady in waiting (Lora) is there for EVERY need the morning of, is a god send. The day ran so smoothly, we knew nothing that happened behind the scenes. The KASALNY team was so attentive and always made sure our needs were met that day. The detail! Every detail from the guest table to the 'just in case' baskets was perfect. Lyna has a precise eye for detail and ensured everything was well thought of. Without KASALNY, quite honestly I (Jasper) would never know where to begin.
We can go on, and keep reviewing KASALNY, but at the end of the day all you need to know about them is that they ARE the number one vendor we would recommend for any wedding. All weddings needs a planner or most importantly a friend like Lyna.
On behalf of my wife, we would like to thank Lyna and her team KASALNY for the adventure, the journey of how two countries became a masterpiece of their amazing work. So glad you came into our lives.
Cheers to all. We had a lovely time!

My husband and I never thought of booking a wedding planner when we first got engaged back in July 2011. But then we stumbled upon KASAL NY through Facebook and immediately wanted to know what Lyna and her team was all about. My then fiancé , told me to email and see. So I did and arranged to meet a few weeks after. I felt like it was meant to be from the start! Lyna is a wonderful -creative (outside the box) person. She has unique ideas and is open to hear your ideas as well and with that, took all our ideas and put it together. After our first meet, we both knew we needed her on our team and to help us vision and put together a personalized style wedding for my husband and I. After a year and half of planning, our wedding day was upon us and we both and plus our guests were all breathe taken away!!! With all the details and the overall look of our wedding day- it was magical and perfect! It's been three weeks since our wedding, and with her help and her team I miss it every second. Lyna was more than a wedding planner for us, she became a friend. KASAL NY are awesome from beginning to the end!
Lyna and her team are wonderful. We just had our wedding at central park boathouse and her team made the day effortless and breathtaking. They kept us on time, took care of all the details so we didn't have to worry, and were professional and courtesy to everyone there. She was able to add small details everywhere that made the wedding very personal and intimate. It was beautiful and more than I could every envision on my own. I can't wait for the pictures to relive the day! Thank you Kasal for making our day so special!

KasalNy are truly miracle workers. After being introduced to Lyna by good friends as a wedding/event planner, my, then fiance, wife and I had a long discussion about the possibility of booking her to plan one of the most important events in our lifetime. And here I am, 2 weeks later, still feeling the butterflies about how KasalNy made our wedding so magical and surreal that there are no words to describe how perfect it was. Booking KasalNy is probably the second best decision I made after asking Leanne to marry me.
Among the many things that happened during our wedding night, not only was it breathtaking but it also exceeded our expectations. It was truly unbelievable. It was more than what we could have ever imagined. Lyna's creative mind and ideas seemed so unreal during the whole prepping period, but when we entered the room to see her creation, it brought tears of joy to my wife's eyes because it was more than she dreamt of, it was a fairy tale. Aside from attention to details during the ceremony and reception, the KasalNY team also never left our sides during our prep time. They made sure we were well taken care of. From making sure we had something to eat to even getting under Leanne's dress to make sure everything looked perfect. They truly made the day feel like it was all about my bride and myself.
In the end, they create an event that you and your family can boast about in years to come. We're also fortunate to have found great friends. Thanks to the KasalNY team for giving us the beginning of our happily ever after.
Planning your most awaited dream wedding would be crucial for every couple... Good thing we already had Lyna (KasalNY) on our mind - admiring her works and dreaming we will have a memorable wedding just like the one's on her webpage.
Lyna has such a creative mind, her ideas, her excellent taste in designing a personalized wedding and her attention to details; using her expertise and passion will assure you from day one that your in the right hand; in collaboration with Anezka Alvarez - having a wide range of trusted vendors in Manila, very enthusiastic and will make sure you stay happy throughout the whole process.
I couldn't find a word to describe how perfect our wedding day was...
It touches our heart and all of our guest too.
Having a full picture of the event on your mind a year prior , thought we already know what to expect. But it was more than what we had imagined, every single detail was magical...
It's something that you will always look back and know that you will always be grateful and honored that Lyna & Anezka planned and execute this special day of your life.
I would simply say that it was truly a dream come true!
I'm so thankful and i highly recommend their team - If you want a wedding worth remembering, start planning with KasalNY and make your special day a memorable one...
KASALNY TOPPED THE WEDDINGS IN MONTREAL!!
We're Montreal couples, KasalNY gave us a million-dollar wedding, for a very affordable cost. We never thought that we can have that magazine, tv looking type of wedding, our ballroom reception looked stunning. It was more than what we expected. We've received tons of compliments, that it was eye popping, jaw dropping, stunning view & a hell of a party. KasalNY is really amazing, they take care of you all year long, to the wedding and after wedding. Everytime we meet up with them, we always come home with a big smile & excitement on our face. They're very good, that when we go through a problem, they solve it, if not the same day, then the day after. They always have a back-up plan, they don't stop working until they reach their goal. For example, I send them an e-mail around 2:30 am, received a reply within 15 minutes, in full text and details. They work fast and so FUN to be with, very Understanding, really listens to you. One thing that we really like the most is, we give them our ideas, they deliver it right away with added glamorous features (details, details, details). They always go to the maximum capacity of GLAM. We're so proud and happy to have have them part of our meaningful moment in our lives. With KasalNY, you can't go wrong, they've always have a good reputations, we're not the only one giving this positive review. With that all being said, trust us, they'll take care of you as their own family. Thank you very much to Lyna (the mastermind), Kirby, John, Judy and to their florist, Ivie Joy flowers, you guys were outstanding!! KasalNY!!!...
Kasal NY (KNY) is the perfect wedding planner for anyone with excellent taste, a passion for uniqueness and a preference to work with people who have open, loving hearts. From our first meeting forward, all of KNY was smart, kind and genuinely interested in our happiness and the splashes of style we wanted. Whenever we requested objects or concepts that were not available, KNY quickly replaced these with items and ideas of equal or more awesomeness.
Lyna (the owner) manages her emotions and thoughts well, allowing for proactive conversations. Lyna would periodically text with creative ideas, revealing that she was thinking about us continuously and is full of inspiration (eg she found a small surfboard on which guests could sign special messages; this became a hit at the wedding & a lovely decoration for our home!) With a penchant for fashion-forward style, Lyna would set organizational meetings at some of the swankiest places in NYC and Long Island, making these meetings as much fun as productive. Lyna once visited our condo to catch-up, and it was a heart-warming evening.
Moreover, Lyna demonstrates a rare, personal investment in her business by directly responding to any problems we have had with vendors. In particular, we had tremendous issues with the venue, and Lyna made sure to put my bride and me at ease and to make the venue aware that their business was anything but professional.
The rest of the KNY team is authentically friendly and caring. Jacqui is lovely inside and out and was very attentive! I plan to hang out with John, because he is a neighbor and a fun person. This fraternity is a great example of what the KNY crew will do for your special day and for your life: Kasal NY will be there to support and respect you as if you had been friends for many years.
I recommend Kasal NY without reservation and with great happiness! Working with Kasal NY is like a pleasant dream, and they will make your dreams come true!
The best decision I ever made was the decision to hire a wedding planner. The second best decision was to hire Lyna and her team at Kasal NY. Kasal NY was the only wedding planning company I looked into and with good reason.
From our first meeting and subsequent meetings thereafter, it’s easy to see why Lyna is a successful wedding planner. She, of course, brings her expertise in the subject of all-things wedding related, but her best quality is her passion. When she gets excited, you get excited. She makes you feel as if your wedding and reception will be the greatest of all time (and if you were there, ours truly was!).
The one thing I appreciated the most was her attention to detail and scheduling. For anyone who is coming through the home stretch, especially the last few months before the big day, everything task, errand, and appointment-oriented may seem very overwhelming. However with Lyna’s guidance, every single detail was painstakingly prioritized to the day, hour, and minute. She was in constant contact with us to ensure we were on the right path.
But we can’t give Lyna all the glory. Her team, consisting of Judy and John, were massively helpful, bringing with them staunch professionalism while letting there colorful personalities shine.
Lyna and Kasal NY really brought the wow-factor to our wedding.
Our guests raved for days about how the reception hall was staged. From the placecard settings, to the homage of family photos, the hall was exactly how we envisioned it to look, even exceeding our expectations in every aspect.
Lyna and Kasal NY have something special. They are in the business of making people happy. One may ask why they would even do it? Why take on such a daunting task of planning a wedding for two perfect strangers? It’s to create the moment and witness that glint in each couples eyes when they witness something truly awe inspiring.
We were recommended to KasalNY, through a friend. The first step of our wedding process was booking with the KasalNY team and it was the best decision we could make. Lyna was able to create a dream wedding for us that we never even knew existed. Our wedding weekend in Aruba was flawless from the welcome party to the final goodbye breakfast.
Over the months leading up to the wedding, we looked forward to every meeting with Lyna. As busy as her schedule might have been she really made me feel like I was her only bride! (Of course this was not true!) She has an incredible talent for pulling wedding visions together while adding the sparkle and sophistication which complimented my wedding vision. Planning a wedding always seemed very overwhelming for me but, with Lyna's assistance, it made the process actually enjoyable and easy.
Lyna really took the time to get to know Chris and I as a couple, which made the experience that much better. She spent time shopping with me to get just the right deals. She was always just a phone call away, when we needed an honest opinion. Or I needed her to tell Chris I was right, which was not always the case. There is no one else in the world we could have trusted to plan our special weekend in Aruba.
During the weekend of our wedding, I did not have to worry about a single detail. Lyna and her team (Judy, Jackie, Ivy, and Nashette) worked behind the scenes day and night to make each moment outshine the next (somehow she even arranged for a little rain shower followed by a rainbow during our pictures) Lyna is not only one of the kindest, honest, and genuine people we have ever met, but she is also a talented wedding planner who puts her heart and soul into her company. We are forever thankful to KasalNY for making our dreams come true.

Realizing I needed a wedding planner and event coordinator was good on my part. Deciding to work with Lyna and the KasalNY team specifically, was the best decision I made when it came to getting everything together and choosing to keep my sanity (and my fiance's sanity) through the whole planning phase, especially since I had roughly only 4-5 months before the big day!
Earlier on, I was attempting to go the DIY route. But after a month or so, all I had was my color palette, my venue and a potential list of caterers. I had some ideas of what we wanted, but couldn't get the whole picture of our wedding pulled together in my head.
Enter Lyna and her team, who pulled all of it together like MAGIC! With Lyna, it was a great meeting of the minds to meld our ideas together. She had the right contacts and knew who would "fit" our style best. She would even make suggestions and recommend things that I never even considered (and should have!). And especially with the weather prediction for our day getting worse by the minute leading up to the wedding, Lyna was able to immediately come up with a plan B AND C for the rain :) Come the day of the rehearsal and the wedding itself, our entire bridal party, our family and guests were raving about how well organized everything was, and how beautiful and gorgeous the church and reception venue looked. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and were well taken care of.
With Lyna and KasalNY, I found that it wasn't just about hiring someone to plan and organize things for me. She and her team are genuine people who truly cared about getting our wedding right and PERFECT. She was a friend and sounding board when I found myself starting to fret about the little things. She and her team made sure we were all relaxed and just had FUN! Humberto and I really couldn't have asked for anything more!
Thank you, Lyna and the wonderul KasalNY team!
Love, Christel and Humberto
Lyna Calvario knows how to plan a wedding and plan it well. We hired a wedding planner so that our families (both from out of town) would not have any responsibilities on the day of the wedding. We wanted everyone to enjoy themselves and not worry about making sure the room was perfect or things were running on schedule. The day went so smoothly thanks to Lyna and her team. Both our parents were so thankful for the Kasal team, as anything they needed was found or purchased in a matter of moments. I can't imagine going through that whole process without Lyna and her team. Everything was taken care of and the whole day was PERFECT.
What can I say about Lyna (including her team). My wife and I did not want a long engagement and we both knew we would need help with planning our wedding. And help we sure ended up getting. We could not have done it without Lyna. She is absolutely amazing. Our wedding was everything my wife envisioned and then some. The details and the ideas that Lyna came up with were amazing. She always seemed to put ideas out there that we were thinking about but couldn't quite put together as well as make our ideas/visions a reality. There are always hiccups along the way and it was great to have Lyna there to help ease my concerns and make all those things right. I can not stress enough how much we owe her for making our wedding day special, memorable, and just outright gorgeous. I could write for hours all the things that she has done, from saving us tons of money to just her reach of vendors. But the bottom line is this, if you want an amazing wedding, the one you girls envisioned growing up, Lyna and her team will put it together. KasalNY, we love you. Lyna, we LOVE you!!!
Love Pete and Hazel!!!
Words can not express how thankful I am to have Lyna and her wonderful team help us in planning our dream wedding. Throughout the process Lyna always asked how we wanted our wedding to be, recommended great vendors, always had cost savings on her mind and also gave us unique ideas to incorporate into the reception to give more of a "WOW" factor. Lyna's creative vision is top notch! Even though there was a hiccup in the process Lyna found a quick solution and was able not to stress out about it.
In the end our wedding exceeded my expectations, the way they transformed our whole reception into my purple butterfly wonderland hehe. The day went by so fast, but I felt relaxed and stressed free the whole day. All my guests were raving about how beautiful everything was and that would have not been possible without the beautiful KasalNY ladies :)
Thank You for everything!!! ~ Sharon and Paul
Lyna and her team did an amazing job pulling everything together. We had a same-sex wedding, so two brides meant double the usual bridal concerns. Lyna came through from beginning to end with her creative ideas and vendor recommendations. We really didn't have many ideas about how we wanted our wedding to look, or what we really wanted. All we did know is that we didn't want a cookie cutter experience. She was patient with our indecisiveness and assured us that all would be well. She really nailed the simple but chic and unique feel we came to love. Our wedding day went so smoothly and was more perfect than we ever expected. Her team even managed to get Buddy the Cake Boss to make an appearance during the evening. All of our guests have raved that ours was the best wedding they've ever been to, and we have KasalNY to thank!
I initially thought I would not need a wedding planner - and that I would be able to handle the entire planning process on my own. When I realized this wasn't the case, I started shopping around for the perfect planner. Stumbling upon the work of Lyna, from Kasal NY, I knew instantly I wanted her to help plan my wedding. Lyna is a never-ending burst of energy, whose creativity never stops flowing. She has such a passion for what she does, and it shows in all of her ideas and end results. She has the capability of having an amazing vision, and going above and beyond to have it come to life. No matter where she is in the world or what is going on around her, she makes time to answer every email, at any hour of the day. And just when you think she's too busy to handle something at the moment, she emails you with any new ideas that have popped into her head to make your wedding even more beautiful. She always had my best interest in saving me time or money, and was never pushy about any of her opinions. I have to say, the last 2 weeks before my wedding, Lyna was my lifesaver. Any issue that came up, she was there to immediately handle it and ease any worries that I had. The night of the wedding, when I saw everything laid out in front of me that took about a year of planning with her, tears were streaming down my face at how beautiful everything looked. Every email, every freak out, every minute planning was well-worth it. And at the end of the entire wedding planning process, I not only found a great planner, but a wonderful friend who is always welcome in my home.
