We are committed to you and your vision!

So, you've stumbled across my website. Now it is my job to keep you enticed enough in the services that I have to offer so that you do not stray:)

Freedom. My planning packages allow you the freedom to be as involved in the planning process as your life allows you to be. Whether you decide on the 'No Fuss No Mess' or the 'Speed Dial Plan', the choice is yours to make.

Experience. I spent four months in 2014 working with a seasoned wedding planner in Halifax. I was taught how to work with clients and run a successful business. My first large-scaled event as owner of Committed To You Events was the Annapolis Valley Bridal Fair, held on February 8th, 2015. This was a highly successful event for valley region with 122 brides registered and over 400 guests attended. My 2015 wedding season was just as exciting. I truly enjoyed working with each of my brides, grooms and their families. My favourite moment of the big day? Watching the grooms face as the love of his life walks down the aisle to meet him:)

Knowledge. I am currently enrolled in the QC Event School Event and Wedding Planning Course. This course is allowing me to think 'out of the box' when planning an event. Each time I complete an assignment, I feel confident that what I have learned will be beneficial to me in my future within the wedding industry.

My life before becoming a wedding planner:) I completed over 26 years of service with the Canadian Armed Forces working in the fields of Administration and Finance, and retired in the rank of Petty Officer 1st Class. Throughout my career in the CAF, I deployed overseas to Bosnia-Herzegovina and Afghanistan. I also deployed on many, many smaller exercises throughout Canada and the United States. I learned many things in my long career that helped shape me into the individual I am today, but the one thing that I am most proud of is working with people from all over the world, and knowing that I had a small part in making their lives better.

Becoming a wedding planner and decorator has been a surprisingly easy transition. In the last five years or more, I was relied upon by my peers to coordinate and host important events, meetings and activities. Each and every experience has allowed me to hone my skills in event planning.

My easy going attitude and friendly demeanour helps me to connect with new clients, and within the first 10 minutes of our initial consultation, I have a good sense of what I can do to help alleviate the stress and fears of planning an event or wedding. My list of contacts in the industry is ever growing with each event that I coordinate and host. I hold this list of vendors in the highest of regards, as I have hand-picked every one to provide you with the best service possible for your big day.

Testimonials

We hired Heather as our Day of Coordinator for our wedding. After meeting with her, we knew she was exactly what we wanted in a coordinator. She made us feel really comfortable and accommodated our every need and desires for our wedding day. We knew we wanted to hire a day of coordinator to help relieve the stress and allow us and our families to enjoy every minute of our wedding, Heather did exactly that and more!! What makes Heather such a great coordinator is that she is capable of making adjustments on the fly and not letting anyone but herself know that something did not go exactly as planned. She is organized, efficient and accommodating (not only to the bride/groom but all important parties in the wedding). I highly recommend Heather to every bride and groom! Thank you Heather!!

Dailyn Slute - Day Of Coordinator

Wedding planning is very stressful and tough work. With Heather, I did not worry about anything. She decorated the venue and made it look very elegant and beautiful. My wedding was wonderful, and without her help it wouldn't have been as enjoyable as it was. Thank you for everything! I really recommend Heather, as she is an excellent wedding planner and decorator.

We want to thank you again for providing us with the wedding that I had pictured and always wanted!! We couldn't have asked for a better day!! Everything was amazing!!! On that note, I have two friends that have recently got engaged and are starting their wedding planning! They have asked me for some recommendations and yours will be at the top of the list!! I am actually going to meeting with one of them in the next few weeks to go over all the details of my wedding. Thanks again Heather, and I hope these brides decide to go with you!!
