Glorious with Gold Accents

Sheldon and Eleni met when they were 14, through mutual friends. Eleni and Sheldon lived in the same small city, and though they never went to the same schools, they bumped into each other every now and then over the years. One summer day in 2009, Sheldon saw Eleni at the restaurant where she was working at the time, while he was on a date with another girl. Sheldon stopped on his way out to say hi, and a few months later Eleni and Sheldon were dating!
When it came to the wedding, it was important Eleni and Sheldon to have a relaxed feel with a touch of elegance. They wanted the reception to be quite simple in terms of its agenda; to achieve this, they chose to focus on the dinner and dance. In terms of decor, Eleni was set on having a soft, romantic feel, and luckily, Sheldon was on board! This meant soft colours, lots of candles, and delicate-looking florals. The gold accents added that extra pop. The decor couldn’t have turned out better; it was exactly as Eleni had imagined it!

"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…"
