tricia and keith
Keith and I wanted to say the biggest thank you for planning our wedding day. We couldn't have asked for the day to turn out any better and it was completely stress free for us because of you and your staff. Planning our wedding from abroad was challenging at times, and we were working with another wedding consultant who was not fulfilling our needs. When we hired you, we could tell the difference right away and I only wish now that I had hired you straight from the beginning. Even though we did not start working together until less than a month to our wedding, you took control of the situation and I felt that you were 100% committed in ensuring all the vendors were on board and planned the day out perfectly without having to involve us in the "little details". We had hired you for "day of" planning only, but we could tell how committed you were by spending so much time with us prior to the wedding day to work out the details. We were so impressed that not only did you have three additional staff with you on the day of the wedding, but that every one of you stayed until the very end to ensure that everything went as smoothly as possible. Your staff were so helpful and friendly to the guests and my family. You and your staff are so genuinely nice and we really felt that you cared about making our day was as beautiful as possible. We really cannot thank you enough.You and your staff showed the utmost professionalism, genuine kindness, and were completely reliable in every aspect. Keith and I wish you all the best with A Day to Remember and I know that you will be making more brides and grooms happy in the future as well! Please do not hesitate in contacting us if potential clients would like a referral - we would recommend you to anyone in an instant!
mother of the bride
I just want to say a big and sincere thank you to you for all your help in making my daughter's wedding day so special. Your hard work and dedication to detail allowed us to enjoy every moment completely stress-free, knowing that you had everything organized. Your presence contributed to making it a perfect wedding day for Sarah and Dino, and we have heard nothing but compliments from our family and friends. I have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone in need of an event planner. You gave us what your business card promises - a day to remember.
father of the bride
A few lines cannot hope to convey the favourable impression you made on our family, so deep that it did not escape even the attention of the bride surrounded by noise, distraction and excitement, with the faultless management of the event, impeccable professionalism and the untiring, attentive, courteous, and responsive attitude of your team attending the occasion. I was particularly affected by the unimpeachable performance of your staff, who not only in the ceremony and reception, but throughout the dinner and dance, was never more than a few meters from my sight to help and advise, and who, despite the long day, carried on to very late hours with attention, pleasantness and vigour undiminished. Their valuable help was only equaled by the visible enthusiasm, as intense as that of ourselves, that they genuinely loved and cared for the work they were doing, and took a personal interest in the success of the occasion. You are to be complimented for having staff of that quality on your team. The quiet delivery of wedding flowers that bedecked our front porch was a particularly pleasant touch, making a surprising and delightful end that befitted a most satisfactory service you rendered on this important occasion. Your contribution which helped to make this event a success will be fondly remembered: it was money well spent and the best return of our investment. Again our heartfelt thanks; and our best wishes for all your future endeavors.

As most brides, I wanted my wedding day to be perfect. Luckily I found out about your services just before my big day and you informed me that I could customize a package that was just right for me. I knew I wanted someone calm and cool to be with my bridesmaids, family and myself when we were getting ready the morning of the big day because I knew we would be frantic and forget important things. You provided the calm and nurturing staff to assist us that morning and I had an opportunity to enjoy the process of getting ready instead of being stressed out. Throughout the day A Day To Remember staff were there to assist with the ceremony, photos, receiving line, dinner and dancing. You all made sure the day flowed by taking my itinerary and making it come true to life with no stress. Little touches like having a basket in the mens and ladies room that had everything you could think of in it including a sewing kit that we needed to hold up my bustle that kept falling down to dental floss that I didn’t even think to bring but needed desperately after dinner. You made sure everyone was comfortable, safe and having a good time. My wedding day was the happiest day of my husband’s and my life…I know A Day to Remember were a part of making it such a beautiful memory. I would and have recommended you to everyone I know getting married!
teresa and trevor
Words cannot even to begin to express how much we appreciated your assistance with the preparation of Our Wedding Day! Not only on the day of, but at our rehearsal and all of the details you had taken care of prior. I was so nervous and anxious the whole week of the wedding and especially when it was time to walk down the aisle, but the wonderful part of ‘A Day to Remember’ being there was, I only had to worry and stress about myself and the huge step I was about to take in my life. I had no need to worry about the details… they were all looked after without a glitch!! Thank-you so much for all of your help. Our day was amazing thanks to you!!
kathy and stephane
Thank you so much for a job well done. You guys rock!
You went above & beyond and I’m so happy how seamless everything went on our wedding day. Thank you for staying late & doing the clean-up. The setup was gorgeous, the music was great and I loved the décor you helped us pick & supplied.
Thank you very much for making our day so smooth! Everything went without a hitch & it was such a relief everything was in your capable hands. Thank you for staying late!
ginny and dwight
We hired Candice and her team to be our day of coordinator since we had a destination wedding in Vancouver. We didn't want any of our guests running around the day of the wedding trying to setup or coordinate things. One of the best decisions we ever made! Even though Candice, and her assistant Lydia, did not do full planning for us I was in contact with Candice via email during the engagement. She always responded, tried to help, and basically organized me 2 weeks before so on that day I could just hand it all over to her and her team. She was amazing! She helped run our rehersal, helped with family photos, decorated everything on that day, and basically made our guests feel at ease. My mom said she was so relaxed (as was I) the whole day because she knew we had Candice and Lydia taking care of everything. Even our photographer said it was such a joy having Candice there to help make her job easier. I would recommend Candice to everyone. She's so professional and also kind and fun to be around.
kristie and jeffrey
Candice was a pleasure to work with on our big day! From the moment she arrived at our wedding rehearsal, to smoothing out my dress as I walked down the aisle with my Dad, her eye for detail impressed both of us. We highly recommend A Day To Remember, and the services of Candice Jones to any Bride and Groom who want to kick back, relax, and enjoy their special day. Leave the big stuff to Candice, and she'll take care of it with grace, professionalism, and a beautiful smile!
amanda and darren
We hired ADTR for the decor and flowers for our ceremony and reception. It was absolutely perfect and everything was set up exactly how we had discussed.Candice provided us wth suggestions when first starting out which was very helpful and the end result exceeded our expections. I would recommend to hire them for the entire day of the wedding as we were so very behind and that was our only regret was not having them there making sure we were on time and things went smoothly. I recommend anyone to use there services!
jill and kyle
I just wanted to say thank you. You were such an amazing help coordinating our big day! We both felt it was the best decision we made for the big day to have you there to help! Everything looked great and everyone kept saying how it was the most fun wedding ever! Thank you again it truly meant the world to us!
lindsay and shaun
Shaun and I wanted to thank you so much for everything you did to make our day look and run beautifully. The decor looked fabulous and the coordination was smooth, everything went as it should.. It was everything we imagined it could be. I can't thank you enough for all you did before and at the wedding. You are the best. Thank you so much!
angela and mike
We had so much fun at our wedding, and we certainly have you to thank! You were so helpful during the planning process (especially keeping Angela calm!) and you went above and beyond what we expected on the day of our wedding. 07/07/07 was a great day! Thanks again for doing such a great job - you are certainly in the right line of work!
sarah and ryan
Saturday was beyond perfect. The venue was beautiful, the decor was fabulous, the flowers were absolutely stunning, the music was lovely, the cake was delicious. Thank you Candice for giving Ryan and I a stress free day that we will cherish forever. You brought our dream wedding to life and I cannot thank you enough. Every bride should have a planner it is a definite must! Thank you!
clara and scott
Thank you so much for your hard work at our wedding. We were all very impressed with your skill & professionalism, and how smoothly it all went – all thanks to you. Our wedding was really a dream come true. We had a great time & so many people commented on how wonderful it was. Thanks again.
emily and dj
Our wedding day was wonderful, we were very impressed by all the work that you & your team did that evening. Our guests were very happy and couldn't stop talking about how beautiful everything was decorated. Our guests felt comfortable and we had a stress-free evening, which is exactly what we wanted! Thank you!
jennifer and kevin
We booked with Candice for our November wedding almost a year in advance and are so glad that we did. She was through and detailed in providing assistance with planning through out the year and on the big day was fabulous at ensuring that everything ran smooth. Our wedding was destination and she was beyond helpful at putting everything together with me from a distance and was always available to give extra advice or opinions. Thank you again for everything!
amber and chris
We hired Candice as a day of coordinator she was beyond helpful. We have three kids and along with taking care of all the little details before and during the wedding she and her assistant also helped out with our kids so I didn't at any point have to worry about them or anything else. I can not say enough good things about either of them. We had Candice’s husband Kevin as our DJ and he was great the music started and the dance floor stayed busy all night. We
couldn't be happier with everyone at A Day to Remember.
brianne and bryan
Candice and her team recently coordinated and set up decor and etc for my wedding. Even though I work in the wedding industry myself, I didn't realize the amount and stuff that needed to get organized for a wedding. I have such a better appreciation for what Candice does now. It is so much work and couldn't not imagine doing it on my own. It was a great day, everything went smooth and the venue looked AMAZING!
natalia and michael
Candice, I can’t begin to tell you what an amazing person you are! You made our special day so perfect and unforgettable. Every aspect of the day was thoughtful and planned to the smallest of details. It was even more beautiful than I had dreamed of. You and your assistant are such beautiful people inside and out.
cheryl and mike
We used A Day to Remember Wedding Consultants for their 'week of' package they were fantastic. The wedding was perfect and we didn't have to worry about a thing - that was our biggest reason for hiring a consultant so we could actually relax and enjoy our big day! The set up was taken care of and everything lookedamazing. It was also great using their other services too - DJ & photobooth (which was a huge hit with all our guests). We would definitely recommend A Day to Remember to anyone getting married, or hosting an event.
parents of the
bride and groom
Thank you so much for helping to make Meghan & Brad’s wedding day so memorable! The flowers & decorations were beautiful. Now that we are seeing the photos we realize how much we missed some of the details. We know it made for a long day for you. We really appreciate all you did to make the day so special.
Candice is the person every Bride and Groom needs on their big day. Professional, completely in control of everything, all with a beautiful smile! We used Candice for our day-of consultation and she was amazing! We also used her DJ for our reception, and he did a great job with the music required, as well as all the cues for the dances. Highly recommend! Bravo Candice!
jason and rosie
ADTR made our wedding absolutely amazing. It was the best day of our lives! Fantastic DJ had guests dancing all night long! Candice helped us make the best decisions throughout the entire planning process from recommending amazing vendors to looking after the small details. The reception décor was stunning and far beyond what we had imagined for our day. Her lovely staff ensured everything
ran smoothly so that our family and friends could relax and enjoy the day. We highly recommend Candice and her A Day to Remember team.
city of port coquitlam
Christmas at Port Coquitlam City Hall has always included festive creations on all three floors of our heritage building. We presented a unique challenge to Candice and her team to “change things up” while working with our existing decorations, which range in style from being modern to vintage (with some being quite dated). What an impressive flare and elegance her team brought to City Hall. They created a warm charm and cozy country scene on our second floor, a wintery Frosty the Snowman and icy polar landscape on the third floor, and an elegant main floor Christmas tree decorated with red and gold trimmings. They approached this job with a plan in mind and executed it with creativity, style, charm and flare. They captured our attention and we appreciated their extra attention to detail that we slowly discovered over the season. If you are planning an event, rest assured you can count on Candice Jones and her team at A Day to Remember.
I highly recommend Candice to any bride who likes to have a stress free day and enjoy her big day. I have worked with many planners before but I never saw anyone as organized, meticulous and caring as Candice. Working with Candice is an absolute pleasure. She makes everyone’s job easy!
stu and stephanie
Thanks again for everything! Kevin, you did an absolutely wonderful job on music at our wedding. The dance floor was hopping all night, and guests kept coming and thanking me for requesting specific songs (but many of them were your doing - you have a knack for reading a crowd and pegging their music!) It was the best party I may have ever been to. I feared having one of those weddings that empties out at 10 pm despite any best effort, but that definitely didn't happen -- people stayed on the dance floor right until the last song. Thanks Kevin! Kat, the manager at the Chateau Cargill, told us that you were one of the best djs they have ever had there. We were so fortunate to win your services from the Dream Big Wedding Contest. Thanks so very, very much! We will recommend you to anyone looking for a dj! And Candice, thank you for the pre-planning. You did more than you know in putting us on the right track in our wedding-planning process. You both helped make our wedding the best day of our lives! You are AWESOME!
suzie and kevin
We were just looking at our photos yesterday of our wedding! We had such an amazing day, and we are so grateful for your help. It was absolutely perfect. We have told everyone what a great help you and your staff were and have recommended you to all our friends. We knew we could put all of our trust in you and were able to relax, knowing that everything was taken care of. We had so much fun! The decor was stunning, and we loved all of the small, personal touches you added. We loved the petals down the aisle, the linen on the extra tables, and the candles were beautiful. It was so stunning! You really thought of everything to make it run so smoothly. I was so impressed at the end of the evening that everything was packed and ready to go. I was hoping my family wouldn't have to stay long, and they were able to get in their car and go so quickly! I could really go on and on about all you did! There is not a thing I would change in terms of your services. It was such a great fit for us. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts. We really feel it was the perfect day. Thank you for all of the things you did, big and small, to make it so wonderful.
allison and amin
Thank you for the amazing day and going above and beyond anything expected. We remember you going out to get the best man a McDonald’s meal because he didn’t eat Chinese food, arranging the many activities, keeping the groom in line, your DJ’s mix was perfect, and all the details down to the dress! You’re amazing at what you do and we wish you much success in your business. If you need a referral letter of if there is anything we can help with please don’t hesitate. We will definitely tell others about your fabulous services. Thank you and keep in touch!
sarah and ryan
Now that Ryan and I are back from the Sunshine Coast, we just wanted to take a moment and extend our heartfelt gratitude for helping us pull off the wedding of our dreams. We still cannot get over how perfect the day was. From the exquisite decor, to the behind the scenes management, your services were truly invaluable. While planning the wedding, many of my friends and family reminisced about their wedding day. They recalled how busy they were, and never truly got to enjoy their wedding day. However, thanks to your meticulous attention to detail, Ryan and I can honestly say that we enjoyed every moment of the day. We did not have to worry about vendor deliveries, payments, managing the schedule, set-up, and the list goes on and on. More importantly, we did not have to call on our family and friends to handle these details, and in turn they too were able to enjoy a carefree day. I would also like to thank you for helping me throughout the year long planning process. It is truly an overwhelming experience and you were there every step of the way, offering advice, suggesting vendors, and more importantly keeping me sane. You truly went above and beyond, and we highly recommend your services.
I wanted to say how wonderful it was working with you during the whole planning process. I think without you and your diligent staff from A Day to Remember, the wedding sure would have had a lot of craziness and chaos added to it. Everything went so smoothly and seemlessly; your schedule of times throughout the day was perfect! I never thought the receiving line would take 30 minutes but it really did and dinner started right as scheduled. The staff from A Day to Remember were delightful, calm, helpful, thoughtful & professional. They ironed out all the wrinkles that came up unexpectedly and always rushed behind the scenes while maintaining a calm outlook to the rest of the guests and friends at the wedding. Thank you for doing all the 'dirty work' that day - they even became my guest book attendants at the end! I also want to thank them for bringing all the flowers to our door after the banquet was over. My parents were happily surprised and expressed their thankfulness through me. Stanley and I really had a great time and want to thank you and your staff from the bottom of our hearts.

The minute we met Candice, we liked her right away and knew we wanted her to be our Day-of Coordinator. We also booked a few coaching sessions with her and through those meetings, although my now-husband and I were lost and disorganized, she gave us sound advice and helped us on the right track to plan our wedding. Her passion for what she does is clearly evident because she is truly dedicated to her clients and goes the extra mile. I was extremely impressed with her organizational skills leading up to the big day and then her execution on the day of. She is professional, confident, and pleasant to be around. If there were any little mishaps that day, I sure wasn't made aware of it as I know she handled everything. The day went off without a hitch and we have her to thank for it. I strongly recommend Candice and her company. She was our favourite vendor and an absolute pleasure to work with.
denise and mark
Early on in our engagement, my wife and I decided to hire Candice, and she made an immediate and positive impact on our planning. From the first day, it took away much of our stress. Through her advice on how and when to purchase other products, we saved quite a bit of money, which was a priority for me. More importantly, however, she took enough of the load off our plates for us to stop and enjoy our engagement. When we weren't sure on something (which happened a lot), or when we were stuck between what we wanted and what our families wanted, our immediate thought was: 'Let's ask Candice.' Thanks to her gentle reminders, her efficient and effective meetings, and her fantastic advice, our wedding not only went off without a hitch, but was a resounding success. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.
marlis and yasser
We wanted to sincerely thank you and your team for all of your hard work and smiles that helped make our wedding day everything we could have dreamed of. We have received many compliments from family and friends on our décor and how smoothly the day went… we have you to thank for both. Thank you!
jenn and matt
We are so thankful for all your help on our wedding day. We had a long list of duties to be done in a short time and you and your team executed it exactly how we envisioned it. You even went beyond what we expected with the emergency rentals and last minute ceremony music help. Thank you for taking care of all those things so we could enjoy a stress and worry free day. We couldn’t have done it without you and we will definitely recommend you to others!
kate and james
Thank you and your team for all your hard working helping make our wedding so special. Throughout the planning process it was so comforting knowing we could call you with any questions. Having you there on the wedding day was wonderful and everyone commented how smoothly things went. Please pass along our thanks to our ADTR DJ. The music at our reception was awesome! I have never seen a dance floor so packed all night long!
We were just looking at our photos yesterday of our wedding! We has such an amazing day, and we are so grateful for your help. It was absolutely perfect. We have told everyone what a great help you and your staff were and have recommended you to all our friends.

Thank you for all of the things you did, big and small, to make it so wonderful.

We hired A Day to Remember to provide the décor and DJ services for our wedding on July 31, 2011 at Mayfair Lakes. The first time I met Candice I was immediately impressed. Two of my bridesmaids and myself sat down with Candice in her office for about an hour and a half and selected all the décor for our wedding. I would describe something I had in mind and Candice had pictures for everything I was describing that I could look at and decide what I liked and didn’t like about it. Given her experience she had many helpful suggestions for what she thought we should and shouldn’t do and the pros and cons for specific items which made it very easy to make decisions. Candice was always prompt in responding to my emails and even emailed me at her own discretion regarding new seat covers she had ordered that would actually cost less if I wanted to use them, which I did and they looked great! I was a little worried as to how the reception would look as the room was smaller than I had hoped but I was so relieved when I saw it fully decorated. Candice did an amazing job and I couldn’t have been more pleased. We received many compliments on the décor and friends and family who saw the before and after of the room could not believe what an amazing job she did. Candice knew exactly the look I was going for and it was perfect. We also hired Kevin through a Day to Remember to DJ at the wedding. The music selection was awesome and he had everyone up dancing the entire evening. He was fun and a pleasure to deal with. I had friends asking if they could get a copy of the songs he played because everyone loved the music. I will definitely be recommending A Day to Remember to everyone I know getting married

We just wanted to send you a small token of appreciation for the wonderful job you both did at Carley & Dan’s wedding! Kevin, you kept everyone dancing all night long! Even my 73 year old mother commented on how good the music was! Candice, you truly went above and beyond to make their wedding a special one. You brought Carley & Dan’s vision to life and made sure all of the final touches were done. You made sure that everything was running smoothly even clearing plates, moving logs, and shuttling the wedding party in the pouring rain to name only a few…. Your hard work did not go unnoticed and I hate to think of what would have happened without you there! Thank you so much!!
dwight and ginny
We used A Day to Remember for our DJ and had Kevin handling the music for our wedding. AMAZING!!! The dance floor was never empty! He honored all of our requests and our guests' requests as well. All of our guests said it was the best wedding DJ they had ever experienced. I could not give him a higher recommendation. We had some odd ceremony music requests and he found those too, no problem. He and Candice are also a great team so we had no worries when it came to our music and sound for our wedding.
Our day would have been a disaster without Candice's help. We had a lot of activities things happening between 2 ceremonies, 2 photo shoots, reception, out of town guests, language barriers, travels between different cities for the venues but all turned out so smoothly because of the organization, professionalism, and attention to detail that the team at ADTR provided. From the coordination of introductions, to matching corsages, to timing of music, to crowd control, the service was outstanding and we would recommend ADTR to any wedding plans even if just for the day of. All the best!
cindy and hilbert
Working with Candice and her team is truly a pleasure from start to finish. We hired her team for planning, decor and DJ services. Candice was experienced, thorough, upfront and made the process stress free. Plus, she worked within our budget! We’re grateful to have her part of our wedding. Not only was she great at her job but she also became a good friend.
beth and mike
We hired ADTR for day of services. It was some of the best money spent on the wedding! When issues arose with vendors the 24 hours before our wedding, Candice dealt with it quickly and professionally. The day if the wedding everything went off without a hitch, thanks to the work of ADTR. The coordinators kept us all on schedule and ensured everything ran smoothly. So many little things were taken care of by the coordinators, things that I never would have thought of (bringing the extra programs to the reception, taking wedding gifts to our hotel room, bringing our sand ceremony kit in from the reception, etc). At the reception, our DJ played the wrong song for our first dance. Within 4 bars of the song playing, Candice was at the DJ booth correcting the mistake before any guests noticed! My husband was hesitant about hiring a coordinator, and did not
understand why we needed one. After the wedding he said ADTR was the best investment, and he now recommends them to his friends who are getting married!
samantha and john
Candice and her team are AMAZING! We hired her for the day of our wedding and leading up to it she was so helpful. On the day of our wedding they took care of everything. If anything went wrong I have no idea to this day because they made my day stress free and magical. I highly recommend hiring A Day to Remember!
joanne and leo
Candice was a delight to work with! She took care of all the decor and floral for our ceremony and reception. She also made the arrangements for her husband Kevin to DJ at our wedding. She was very efficient, flexible and conscientious of our budget. She also has great taste! Our wedding day was perfect in every way!
stephanie and stu
Candice met with us for a very-informative meeting to make sure we were on track with our wedding planning. She offered a lot of advice and resources for us to plan our perfect wedding. Kevin did an absolutely wonderful job on music at our wedding reception. The dance floor was hopping all night, and guests kept coming and thanking us for requesting specific songs (but most of them were Kevin's doing - he has a real knack for reading a crowd and pegging their music!) It was the best party we may have ever been to. Many of our guests stayed on the dance floor right until the last song. Thanks Kevin! Our venue manager even told us that A Day To Remember was one of the best djs they have ever had there. We will recommend Candice and Kevin to anyone looking for wedding services. They are awesome!
helen and john
I can 100% recommend both Candice and Kevin! My husband and I booked ADTR’s ‘day of’ package, along with Kevin as our DJ. Candice took so much of the pressure off of our parents on the day of so that they could enjoy the day and Kevin’s DJ sercices were out of this world. He got everyone from the little kids to the olides up from the first song.
michael and cheryl
Candice & Kevin,
We just wanted to say how happy we were having you both at our wedding. Everything was perfect, we loved not having to worry about anything on the day. Kevin did a fabulous job with the music and everyone had so much fun with the photobooth too! Thanks again for everything!
I am the owner of Spin Lighting And Sound, a DJ Service that had the opportunity of working with this amazing company at a recent wedding. I just wanted to say that she runs an amazing service. One of the best i have worked with. Just a great positive energy... and for a DJ the energy is what its all about. I have worked with other organizers that are a ball of stress and horrible to be around. She was positive and just amazing with every guest and vendor. Thank you for always smiling!
the apartment photography
Candice is the head coordinator and she kicks ass in whatever she does. We've had the pleasure of photographing many of her weddings and we have to say it's always smooth, beautiful and on time. When she works with Kevin (their DJ) they're like the ninja turtles of the wedding world. Whether you need help planning your wedding or just coordination, this is your team!
