We hired Enriched Events to be the day-of coordinators for our Banff wedding. I cannot express how thankful I am for them! I was able to relax and enjoy my day. They took care of everything from setup to tear down, keeping track of everything, liaising with the venue, etcetera. I loved the way they decorated the venue. We couldn’t have done it without them.

Sonia Ulmer and her team at Enriched Events truly made our wedding a one-of-a-kind occasion. We literally had a perfect day, and they took care of every single detail. We didn’t worry about a thing on our big day – our room looked amazing when we made our grand entrance – it was honestly picture-perfect. Sonia was always incredibly responsive when I sent her emails in the months leading up to our big day, and she created an amazing candy bar for us that was the highlight for our guests. She also took care of last minute things that came up, like printing off our thank you speech ten minutes before we were supposed to speak because we had misplaced it! She saved the day, and did it all in such a calm and professional manner. We can’t recommend Enriched Events enough – they made our wedding a dream come true and every bride and groom should make this investment – you won’t regret it!

Our wedding was August 17, 2013 at Spruce Meadows in Calgary. I cannot recommend Sonia highly enough. Our initial meeting with her was in Vancouver (where we live – she was on vacation) and we were impressed from the moment we met her. She is very personable and professional and takes the time to get to know you as a couple. We came into the planning process having very little idea of exactly what we wanted in terms of décor, etc. Sonia was able to steer us in the right direction and planned everything beautifully. Her recommendations for the vendors – cake, florist, wedding commissioner, DJ, limos – were all great. When it began raining right before our ceremony, and everything needed to be moved inside, Sonia organized this incredibly quickly and efficiently. The whole day and evening went off without a hitch. We received endless compliments on how well organized everything was and how beautiful the reception hall looked. Sonia becomes your friend during the planning process and we honestly could not have done it without her. I don’t think it gets any better; I would absolutely recommend Sonia and Enriched Events for your wedding!
-Jillian and Jordan – August 17, 2013
Sonia! We wanted to reach out and let you know how integral you were to the success of our special day. It was the most incredible wedding and we will NEVER forget how you supported us through the entire planning process. Ever since I was a little girl I dreamed of finding my prince charming and I’ve have been visualizing the PERFECT wedding day ever since. Thanks to you and your team, this all came true for me on New Years Eve. From the first day we met you at our initial consult – we knew it was meant to be! What sold us, was when you said that you would make sure that we were “guests at our own wedding”. To go through the entire day without one worry or concern about details, was a top priority for us and we’re blessed to say that our day was seamless and magical because of you. Everything from decor to timing and flow was handled so professionally, and we are STILL hearing rave reviews about how beautiful both of our venues were. Even when those crazy butterflies came along as we waited to walk down the aisle you were right by our sides to keep us calm and in the moment. Thank you for going over and above our expectations with every detail and for being so available to chat when the stress was wearing on us while preparing for the day. We’re so happy to have met you and worked so closely with you during this milestone of our lives. Your talents are un-paralleled and we wanted to say Merci Beaucoup to the moon and back for all of your help!

Enriched Events provided full wedding planning and coordination services for our wedding in October, 2011 in Banff and I still cannot stop raving about how much Sonia helped with our big day. She took the time to get to know us and when she presented her design and concepts to us, we loved everything. Our wedding had both traditional and unique elements and she did everything she could to accommodate our ideas and suggestions while making terrific contributions of her own. One of the things that I respect the most about Sonia is her ability to bring in creative solutions to obstacles or challenges. We trusted all of the vendors that Sonia recommended and had great results. We relied on her efficiency and organization so much that Andrew said the following at the rehearsal, “Tara and I are getting married tomorrow. That’s Sonia, she’s the boss.” It brought a chuckle, but was absolutely true. Now that our wedding is over, Andrew and I often say that if we had close friends or family members still to get married, we would pay for Sonia to help the couple as our gift to them.
-Tara & Andrew – October 1, 2011
My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Enriched Events for our August 2011 wedding. Sonia and her team are amazing, having her be part of my wedding was easily one of the best decisions we made. Sonia’s ideas were creative and thoughtful, not only was she extremely helpful to a bride who barely knew where to start but was also pivotal in helping us plan and execute our special day! She made the entire experience a breeze and I can honestly say that having her and her team there the ‘day of’ made it carefree and even more wonderful. Not having to worry about so many of the details gave me the time and peace of mind to truly and fully enjoy my day. It was literally the best day ever, we could not have asked for anything more perfect. I think the thing we appreciated most about Sonia was her genuine investment in our wedding, every time we spoke we felt that she was just as excited as we were and we could trust her completely! She is a true professional who sincerely cares about her clients.
-Tara & Justin – August 20, 2011 Hi Sonia, I just wanted to send a quick thank you to let you know how much we appreciated all of your help! We didn’t have to worry about a thing and you were so calm and professional throughout the whole night and everything was set-up perfectly. We will definitely be recommending you to friends of ours that are planning a wedding.
-Priscilla & Tim – June 18, 2011 I want to thank you Sonia for all the effort and details you put in to make Leanne & Tom’s wedding beautiful and (I heard a comment from the bridesmaids that they were so happy to have you there to keep them on task). Well, I can tell you we all were happy you were there to do that and so much more… like making a boutonniere on demand, and trying to help Brad fix his broken shoe! It all made for those little stories that we will remember about that day. I will always have your name nearby when I hear about someone’s impending wedding… it will be something I will pass on gratefully.
- Jayne (Mother of the Bride) – July 9, 2011 Hi Sonia, I just wanted to write you a quick email to thank you so much for all the wedding coordination you did for us! Everything about our wedding ran so smoothly right from the rehearsal through the end of the night and we have had so many compliments on how beautiful the venue looked and how much fun the wedding was… We absolutely couldn’t have done it without you! I greatly appreciated all the vendor recommendations over the months of planning, and I especially am thankful for all the work you put into making the Winter Club look stunning! Thank you for doing the tear down afterwards for us, too! You were an absolute dream to work with and I felt so relaxed the entire day knowing that you were in charge. I truly have to thank you for allowing me to enjoy every moment of my wedding without worrying about whether things were being taken care of. It was such a wonderful day!! I can’t stress enough how wonderful it was to have you there, so thank you, thank you!!
– Melissa & Colin – June 25, 2011 I would most definitely recommend Sonia Ulmer and Enriched Events to any bride planning an upcoming wedding. Utilizing the “Day Of Wedding Management” package was one of the best decisions I made for our wedding. Having Sonia there to take care of all the little details behind the scenes ensured the whole day ran smoothly and eliminated the usual stresses involved in being a bride. I was so happy to that myself and my family were able to relax and enjoy the day and not be concerned with the organizational details.
– Stephanie & Brian Thank you Sonia for all your help, you were beyond amazing! We thought we just hired you for the day of the wedding but you went above and beyond not just on our wedding day but also for the days leading up. You made everything stress free for us, you made sure we didn’t worry about a single thing. Thank you for the schedule you put together for the wedding day it made everything run so smoothly. Thanks to you the whole day turned out perfect and better than we could have ever imagined. Thanks again so much! – Sylvana & Brett Sonia – we want to thank you for your expert orchestration of our wedding day. Every detail exceeded our expectation. Your knowledge and professionalism were very evident from our first consultation and carried through to our wedding day. You were always willing to help and never made us feel like we were asking too much. We appreciated your prompt answer to questions and your much needed guidance. You truly went above and beyond your responsibilities! It’s evident that you love what you do as it’s reflected in your work and calm, positive attitude – no matter what curve balls are thrown your way! Many of our guests commented on how impressed they were with your talent and professionalism. We thought we could plan our wedding without a coordinator; however knowing you were there to oversee everything put us at ease and allowed us (and our family) to be free to enjoy our wedding celebration. Thanks to you, our wedding was a stunning success and was exactly what we wanted! We would not hesitate to recommend Enriched Events to our friends and family. – Sandra & Doug Sonia! Just want to say thanks again for all your hard work! You did such an amazing job at our wedding, it wouldn’t have been the same without you and your team. I honestly didn’t worry about one thing on my big day..other than the normal nerves…but you handled everything beautifully and with such little time to set up the reception…it was gorgeous! Thanks again! – Karlee & Jason Thanks so much for doing a fantastic job being our day of coordinator. You were a big help planning out the little details that we would never think of and gave us plenty of great tips, everything from decorating the seating chart to supplying the garter belt (which went missing the last minute). You managed the timeline we created perfectly and couldn’t be happier with how it turned out! Thanks again! – Jennifer & Brent Sonia, thank you so much for all your hard work. Our wedding was amazing and you were a huge part in making that happen. During the year of planning everyone commented on how calm and organized I was and I simply told them it was because of my amazing planner. The vendors you recommended were awesome and you took the time to consider our personalities and tastes. You took care of everything making the day and the year really, stress free for us. Everything exceeded our expectations and the day went off very smoothly. We really enjoyed working with you; you were professional, helpful and available to us from day one. We continue to receive compliments on how great our wedding was and you helped bring it together. Thank you! – Konrad & Krisine Sonia, thank you for all your hard work and superb skills in helping us put together one of the most important days of our lives! We are so happy that you were there to spend it with us! –Aneesa and Nuno Sonia, thank you so much for everything you have done in helping Patricia to get through this day. – Heather Shaw (Mother of the Bride)
