Love Takes Flight

Andrew and Emily have known each other since Junior High – they were rivals in the annual school art competition back then, but it wasn’t until a few years later that we became good friends. In their first year of university, Andrew surprised Emily with her favourite flowers – and she surprised him (and herself) with a kiss in return! That night Andrew asked Emily if she would be his girl, and they have been together ever since.

Andrew and Emily had been together for about 8 years in the summer of 2015. They love to travel and have always enjoyed opportunities for adventure and weekend getaways together. So Emily was delighted when Andrew told her he was making plans for them to go on a camping trip to the mountains. However, when Andrew came to pick Emily up from work without their camping trailer, she was a bit surprised. And when Andrew “missed” the exit to the mountains and turned towards the airport, Emily was certain that he had made other plans! They boarded a small jet plane at the International Edmonton Airport, and from the cockpit, Andrew announced that he was flying them to Victoria – one of their favourite cities to visit! And the surprises didn’t stop there. They stayed at the Fairmont Empress hotel, rode bicycles to the wharf, tried stand-up paddle boarding, and ate fish and chips while watching the float planes come into the harbor. It was wonderful! Andrew and Emily decided to buy postcards to write about the special memories they made on their weekend trip. So that night, Andrew and Emily sat down on the front steps of the legislature and began writing. Before long, Andrew handed Emily a postcard and showed her what he wrote: “When Andrew popped the question to Emily, she said ______.”  He then pulled a ring from his pocket and asked Emily to marry him. Of course Emily said yes, kissed him, then promptly filled in the blank accordingly! We mailed that postcard to our home address that night, and now they have that wonderful memory in writing forever.

"Hevin's motivation, personality, professionalism, and evident experience won me over instantly. I cannot thank Hevin and her assistants enough for helping us make our wedding the beautiful and memorable affair that we always imagined.”

"They're very quick to respond to e-mails, they address your concerns immediately, and they show that they really care about their clients. I love their enthusiasm! You can really feel their passion for their craft."

"Hevin helped us stay on track during our whole planning process. She connected us with vendors that fit what we were looking for, and was super professional and upbeat the entire time. I don't know what we would have done without her on the day of our wedding!"

"Hevin and Samantha were so incredible to work with. They made our day truly as special as it could be. It was so nice to have suggestions of vendors that complemented our style perfectly and to have someone there to keep us on track and organized."

"Hevin helped us with partial planning of our wedding and she made the entire process easy, fun and stress free. She is such a caring and genuine person. We didn't have to worry about one thing on our wedding day and everything was absolutely perfect! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Hevin and her team to couples looking for a wedding planner, it was the best decision we made!"

We hired Story Weddings and Events to provide partial planning for our wedding. Hevin was a pleasure to work with - she is always full of excitement and positiveness! She made sure we kept on track of planning and was very helpful in finding and recommending vendors…"
