Hannah and her assistant Aurora, went above and beyond to facilitate our Canadian destination wedding. From planning, sourcing linens and chairs, coordinating the rehearsal, to finding&buying last minute false lashes en route to Cape Breton (amongst many, many other things), she ensured every aspect of our day was executed according to plan.
Hannah and I communicated on a regular basis throughout the year leading up to our wedding day. Her well organized emails, calls, and smart use of google docs, kept everyone on the same page, made certain nothing was missed, and created an overall stress-free process.
Hannah and her assistant were very professional and upbeat throughout the weekend. They coordinated the rehearsal (on the eve of the wedding), decorated our wedding venue, liaised with all the vendors (prior to and on the day of), executed the wedding timeline, venue tear-down, and all the many “behind the scenes,” including pinning the boutonnières, cueing the musicians and bridesmaids during the procession, and assisting the emcees during the reception (to name a few).
To anyone debating if hiring her is worth the cost, the answer is YES. I highly recommend both the partial planning and day-of décor & coordination services.

My wedding was just yesterday and Hannah Forrest planned it! It was literally the best and most fun day of my life and it is all due to Hannah (and like marrying my husband... but mostly Hannah lol) I am so unorganized and she planned everything and planned it beautifully! I was like a guest at my own wedding which is exactly what I wanted!
Everything I asked she got done and better than I could have imagined! Also was very accommodating as we had a lot of meetings on the phone! She knows everyone involved with weddings so we got the best people for hair/makeup/flowers! She was the best wedding decision that we made (apart from each other but really probably mostly Hannah haha)
Would 30/10 recommend!!
We worked with Hannah to plan our wedding in Chester at the Captains House and Chester Yacht Club! We loved getting to know Hannah throughout the planning process, she’s an absolute sweetheart! She did an excellent job coordinating the communication and details for all our vendors, especially while working with two venues. It was so helpful to have someone who had lots of experience with the local wedding industry as an extra ear to talk through details or budget decisions with.
Our favourite part of working with Hannah was how blown away we were on the day of seeing our vision come to life, including everything from the venue design down to the smaller details. The day goes by too quickly and looking back we truly got to enjoy every minute of our day because the set up, decor, vendor communication, and overall coordination of the day was all taken care of!
We would definitely recommend working with Hannah!!

A million thank yous to Hannah. I can't say enough about her. She went above and beyond... everything for my son's wedding was perfect. Hannah is very professional, she took the vision and a dream came true. I love how she is so flexible and creative, not to mention she is a wonderful person and did a phenomenal job, within the budget. The bride, groom and the guest were very impressed. I would recommend her to everyone.
Hannah as our planner, was nothing short of amazing. Her biggest priority was to make sure our wedding day was exactly how we wanted it to be- and it was just that. Hannah helped us with deadlines, made selecting decor really fun, and was generally amazing when any obstacles arose leading up to our special day. She always kept the budget in mind and was great at offering alternative options whenever necessary.
Hannah paid close attention to every little detail, and she put her whole heart into making our wedding a dream wedding. As well, she was a fantastic liaison with all our vendors ensuring smooth communication and execution of our plans. If you score Hannah as your planner, you can count yourself lucky!

Hannah was such an invaluable part of planning our wedding. She happily took on (and rocked!) all the challenges associated with a super unconventional venue, out-of-the-way location, and did it all with us out of province.
Hannah made sure we had an awesome stress free experience from creation to fruition. She did such an an amazing job, respected our budget, and handled any issues that arose extremely professionally. We cannot thank her enough!!!
