It was a Century Celebration – a 100th Birthday Party! Complete with a Scottish Bag-piper and dancers for the entertainment and of course, Cake! Also doubling as a family reunion, a photographer to capture the moments as the bag-piper “piped” the birthday girl from the elevator to the party room while she danced in circles with her walker. Letters were presented from our Queen and Governor General and it was an amazingly joyful day that Lorri was very proud to be a part of and to have planned!
A destination Theme wedding with a mystery! What an excellent vision-let's run with it! Lorri was excited to be assisting with such a 'neat' idea. Guests arrived in 1930's attire to attend a beautiful outdoor ceremony. It all started off reasonably "normal" until the bride's necklace went missing! While dancing to the era big band music and enjoying dinner, the guests were to solve the mystery! Fantastic, Memorable and Fabulous Affairs was glad to be there!

A note to Lorri her ingenious & creative mind. What started out as a very ordinary birthday, ended up being a surprise filled, friend gathering, food & wine frenzy to be talked about for years to come. Lorri’s attention to detail began when I arrived home. My apartment, filled with friends all yelling surprise, decorated very tastefully, with a whole evening planned to unfold with more prestige then a government dinner. The evening’s events were planned well in advance, it was an evening of murder mystery. My GF had wanted to do something for me and had mentioned it to Lorri. Lorri’s enthusiasm was not to be caged and she began to run with it & ran so far with it she clearly scored a touchdown. Cocktails on the roof top patio, of course we were all in costume, with the evening sun just beginning to set, how did she plan such precision? After cocktails we were invited back inside to the dining room for dinner, dessert & the rest of the murder mystery. I am not sure how Lorri pulled it off, but what counts, is I am sure without a doubt she could do it again!!! With all the detail, prestige & precision that only a true event planner could possess. Thank you Lorri for a great evening!!
Amazing! Thanks to Lorri Wilson, our grandmother's 100th birthday celebration was a huge success - and treated with the honour that such a milestone deserves. Friends and family from across the country gathered in Toronto to mark the event. Our birthday girl enjoyed every minute of the celebration! Lorri's professionalism and attention to detail were evident in every step of the planning. We were pleased that she took the time to learn about our grandmother to make the event as special as possible. Lorri suggested (and coordinated) hiring a Bagpiper and Highland Dancers to recognize our grandmother's Scottish heritage. The Bagpiper piped the birthday girl into the party - a nice touch that truly delighted our grandmother. The candid pictures are the proof of the party's success - they show smiles all around. All the details from the decorations, flowers, food, dancers, bag piper and banners were well coordinated. Thank-you, Lorri for making the birthday celebrations so special for our family!
We used Lorri's services to plan our wedding and it was the best decision we could have made. We were living in Alberta and having the wedding in Ontario. Just the thought of what would be required to plan our wedding from such a distance made me feel faint. Lorri is based in British Columbia, but she made it seem effortless. The location she helped us choose was perfect, she found accommodation for us and all our guests. From caterers to helium, flowers and hair to napkins and favours, she did it all and she kept us on schedule and under budget the whole way. Our wedding would not have been half as nice without her, I simply would not have thought of all the details that made it so perfect! I didn't even have to make contact with the DJ or the photographer, she took care of everything and acted as the middle man, knowing our budget and preferences, she found the perfect professionals for us. Also, we were having a 1930 gangster theme wedding. Lorri took this in stride and ran with it all the way, finding websites and making sure guests were able to find costumes, finding an antique car for our getaway, making sure the hairstylists understood the "retro" looks we needed. Thanks again Lorri, for making our day so special, we never could have done it without you!!
