Don’t take our word for it! Here is a selection of testimonials that we have received from satisfied clients over the past few months!
My wife Jennifer and I got married on June 2, 2018 and hired Jess to be our day-of-wedding coordinator. We could not be happier with her services! Our wedding had a lot of moving parts (ceremony and reception at the same location, so tables had to be moved during cocktail hour). Jess is friendly, organized, and excellent at coordinating an event with a lot of logistics. This is so important since we had never planned a large-scale event before. She created an event timeline right down to the minute, for the peace of mind of both wedding party and vendors. Even our vendors have said they loved working with her!
It’s clear she has a lot of experience and during the process, she was able to point out details that we had never considered. She is also excellent managing crises. Six days before our wedding, our event rental vendor suddenly announced that they could not supply a key equipment. We were extremely stressed that we’d have to change the elements of our wedding. However, Jess came to the rescue and was able to advocate on our behalf with the vendor to come to solution we were satisfied with. Even before the wedding, she went above and beyond for us and we were deeply touched! During the wedding, we were able to relax and enjoy ourselves with our family and friends, knowing that Jess was handling all the details. She helped coordinate the break-down at the end of the night and was the last person to leave the venue!
Hiring Jess was the best planning decision we made for our wedding and any couple who works with her is in great hands.
Jennifer & Philippe, 2018 Couple
“Where to begin? Jess was more than I could ask in a wedding coordinator. Noting that she was perfect, amazing, punctual, attentive to details, and organized are not sufficient to describe the incredible service she rendered. At various times and without my having to mention it, she took the initiative on issues and went beyond my expectations. My first impressions in meeting Jess for the first time was that she looked young and petite, and this made me question the extent to which she was up to the task. But as the saying goes: do not judge a book by its cover. Jess was not shy to make her presence known when necessary: contacting and asking questions of vendors, even asking me questions regarding the details of my timeline for the day. Her goal and interests seemed centered on making the day go smoothly and be fun. We were all impressed with the way she managed to keep control before and during the event. She surpassed all of our expectations; to a point where even the vendors were impressed with the 11-pages timeline that she produced for the event and that had everyone talking. Overall, we were more than impressed and I personally don’t think my special day would have been such a success without her”.

“Jessica Poon with En Amour was phenomenal! She created my wedding timeline to match my specific needs, she helped set up and decorate while lending her expertise when necessary, more than a month before the wedding she took over all my vendor contracts and organized everything, and the day of she was a dream as she literally directed everyone! (Especially the groomsmen!!!) She was incredibly easy to work with and was very professional. She took almost all the stress away! She was not pushy and wanted to make me happy so she tried her best to make sure my vision was exactly how I wanted it. I don’t think I would have enjoyed my wedding as much if she wasn’t there to make sure everything ran smooth. I also don’t think it would have been as successful!! All in all I would recommend Jess to anyone who wants to just relax and enjoy their day like any bride should!”
Jenna & Matt, 2017 Couple
“What can I say about Jess other than she is a superstar? We gave her the daunting task of helping us pull off a complete DIY wedding in a backyard and she rose to the challenge and exceeded all of our expectations. When I say that I had ZERO stress on my wedding day, I mean it. I never once worried about what was going on and I was well rewarded because our venue looked stunning and every last detail went off without a hitch. Jess is always super professional and works so hard for her clients. You would be remiss in not hiring her!”
Tracy & Jon, 2017 Couple
“Jess helped plan my proposal in May 2017. Few words can describe her incredible talent planning all things wedding-related! Her extensive knowledge and experience within the Ottawa business community sets her apart. Above all, Jess demonstrated outstanding professionalism, organization, attention to detail, efficiency, and style. She turned a brief brainstorming session into a range of creative and romantic one-of-a-kind proposal ideas tailored to our relationship. Jess helped make our engagement an unforgettable event and I highly recommend her as an event planner without any hesitation!”
Ali T, 2017
“Jess was terrific in all aspects of wedding coordination. We communicated well together and I always felt at ease with all aspects of planning and decor. She was quick to answer questions and very flexible with the timeline which was much appreciated. I would say that working with Jess was a dream come true. Not only was she very supportive with every aspect of the wedding. She also had my back the entire time and made me feel at ease. She took the time to listen, meet and discuss everything in detail and was very focused on making our day the best day ever! I am so pleased to have met her, and will recommend her all future brides in my circle of immediate friends and family without a doubt!”
Brittney & Mike, 2016 Couple
“I had the pleasure of working with Jess on a styled portrait session. She was professional and kind from the moment we met, making it easy to talk with her about all the crazy ideas I had. She took all my thoughts and brought them together into the perfect vision and then executed it flawlessly. I highly recommend Jess. She is an incredibly creative, well-organized event planner and she will definitely bring your vision to reality.”
