    Sophie is the BEST! From one vendor to another

    I have worked with Sophie a number of times and each time she makes the events run as smoothly as possible. I also go out of my way to work with and refer colleagues/ businesses that bring an energy worth remembering to the event. Sophie has got the warmth, zest, kindness and attention to detail that I look for. I will be looking forward to working with her again in the future and would recommend Events By Sophie to any bride searching for someone who's on top of their sh*t, easy to work with, and a true treat to be around. She'll make your big day just that much more special. Attached are a few images of the last job we worked together!

    Exceptional in every way

    I had an opportunity to work with Sophie and her team at Events by Sophie for my 35 birthday dinner this year and that was the best decision I made. I was extremely nervous about whether I should host something because of COVID, but after meeting with her she helped me to not only plan the event she put my mind at ease. She assisted me in creating a unique theme, identifying a location and vendors which were all COVID compliant. She was extremely professional, responsive to my needs, and so creative. I was so pleased with the outcome of my event and so were my guests. I look forward to using her services in the future.

    Micro Wedding

    My (now) wife and I were supposed to get married in March, but covid pushed the plans back. We were considering getting married in 2021, but changed our mind. Sophie was able to help us plan out a really beautiful and meaningful micro wedding that was more than we could have dreamt of. I love the fact that she kept our love and the safety of everyone there at the top of mind!

    Everyone should work with Sophie! Hiring a planner is an expense that is more than worth it and Sophie was worth her weight in gold! :)

    Events by Sophie's reply:

    Thank you so much! It was so great working with you both and I am so glad we were able to contribute to your special day! Cheers!
