"I hired Margot as my wedding day of coordinator about two weeks before my wedding. I tried to not hire one because I was discouraged by the price tag. In retrospect it was the best thing I could have done and don't know what I would have done or how much crazy stress I would be under if I hadn't hired Margot.
Margot is amazing - super friendly, talented and responsive to emails and calls. Due to some added personal stressors the week of my wedding, Margot went above and beyond to help me with tasks like a making seating chart and personally picking up items instead of me dropping them off to her. She listened so well and understood my vision and executed the set up of my ceremony and reception exactly as I has hoped for. Unfortunately the charger plates I rented were in very bad shape. Margot advocated on my behalf and I ended up getting a full refund.
I would highly recommend Petite Pearl Events to help you make your wedding day perfect and take away unnecessary stress. I especially recommend Margot as she was professional, experienced and friendly."

"Petite Pearl Events helped us with with our wedding day coordination and design elements (stationary, flowers, decor) for our wedding! Both Margot and Jessica were extremely professional and attentive to our requests and gave us very thoughtful recommendations along the way to make the best of our big day.
Thanks to them, our wedding day was a breeze - there were no hiccups at all, and we were able to enjoy every minute of it with our closest friends and family. We would be more than happy to recommend Petite Pearl Events to all the couples out there who are looking for a reliable team to plan their wedding :)"
Tiffany (+ Jan Michael)
"Simply the best wedding planner we could have hired in Vancouver! I would not hesitate to recommend Petite Pearl Events to anyone needing help organizing and planning any type of event or celebration!
Jessica was always organized and on top of the many aspects to cover. Most importantly keeping our budget under check and helped us source everything we had envisioned. I would have not known where to start in terms of hiring vendors that and she made it a breeze. In general she made what could have easily been a very stressful day and process - into a relaxed and extremely enjoyable experience for myself, my husband and all our guests!
I will no doubt miss working with Jessica and our many meetings over coffee. I highly suggest that you contact her and have her help you in creating the wedding day of your dreams!"
Ania (+ Brandon)
"Jessica was such an amazing find! We hired her to help us with the day-of coordination for our wedding, as well as for some guidance and professional insight along the way. She took the time to make sure that she fully understood our vision and was always available to answer questions and put us at ease when a snag arose. Jessica regularly went above-and-beyond for us and we could not have been happier with her work.
She and her team made sure that our wedding day was absolute perfection. Jessica is fun and energetic, so easy to get along with (the kind of person you want to spend time with!). She is also very professional -calm, organized and detail-oriented. We really can't say enough good things about her and so enjoyed working with her! Thank you Jess!"
Margot + Mike
"Jessica was always incredibly responsive to all our questions and made our whole wedding something we could enjoy rather than worry about. From finding us our wonderful photographer that perfectly fit our style, to coordinating our venue and our caterers, she did it all.
She and her team made the day so easy and memorable, and Jessica had all the little things covered before we ever had to think of them. It was so smooth and stress-free, our parents even thanked her in their wedding toast for making sure we could all enjoy such a special day. We highly recommend that anyone who is considering a planner for their wedding should hire someone, and we can't recommend Jessica Minnie and Petite Pearl highly enough."
Jessica (+ Mike)
"Jessica helped to ensure that everything went off without a hitch. Prior to the wedding, she provided us with a detailed consultation to make sure she knew exactly what we wanted on our big day. Her attention to detail and thoroughness made us wish we had involved her in our planning earlier. Jessica took all of the stress away from us as the wedding neared. She contacted vendors, coordinated pick-up times for flowers and decor, and made a detailed schedule for the wedding day which brought everything together. Jessica completely exceeded our expectations; we would recommend her services to anyone planning a big event. Our Sincerest Thanks,"
Margie + Christian
"Jessica was very professional and took care of everything so we could enjoy our day and be completely stress free. We truly appreciated her dedication to making our wedding the most memorable day of our entire lives. Thank you so much Jess, we are definitely referring you to our friends when the time comes."
Susan + Jason
"We had a fantastic day and owe it all to you - you did such a fantastic job and made everything run so smoothly. We really appreciate all the trouble shooting you did, with the photo booth and seating chart, and there's probably more that we're not even aware of. Thanks again for making our day so special!"
Sylvie + Darren
"Jess, the wedding was perfect. Absolutely beyond my wildest expectations. Every single detail (and there were many) was incredible. Needless to say, me and Matt could not have done it without you (and if we had, we would likely have two stomach ulcers, one heart attack, one acute case of post-traumatic stress and 140 food poisoned guests between us). You rocked our socks off.
And every single person was overwhelmed with how amazing it was, so I am counting on seeing you at our friends weddings as you execute on perfections!
You are an angel masquerading as a planner."
Elicia (+ Matt)
"Jessica was the best investment we could have made for our wedding day. She is professional, to-the-point and most importantly she knows the Vancouver wedding world inside and out which means time/money savings for her clients.
Jess did our decor planning and day-of coordination and we could not have been happier with the work she did. She has an extraordinary eye for detail and a talent for keeping everything moving forward in an organized fashion. Jess absorbs wedding planning stressors (location changes, seating plans, missing vases the next day etc.) so that you don't have to. Three weeks out from our wedding she took over everything so that we could enjoy the time leading up to the big day...and we really did. Everyone kept commenting on how calm we were and I know we felt that way because we knew we had the team at Petite Pearl looking out for us.
You only get married once so you really want to do it right. Jessica ensures you stick to your budget, have fun throughout the whole process and most importantly that you don't have a care in the world on the actual day. Jess is reliable, has an awesome sense of humour (which you need at moments while planning a wedding) and will without a doubt elevate your wedding experience ten-fold.
Two words - HIRE HER."
Erin + Scott
"When my husband and I look back on the planning of our wedding we BOTH are in agreement that the best planning decision we made was hiring Jessica Minnie of Petite Pearl Events to help us with the general planning, decor and execution of our special day.
Jessica is incredibly professional with an infectious energy and fresh approach to bringing your dreams to life. It is important to note that Jessica and her team pulled everything together all while staying within a tight budget and covering every single detail with an eye for perfection.
The commitment and hard work Jessica puts toward her business and client relationships is so inspiring that it actually led me to re-evaluate my own job...everyone should be so lucky to be as in love with their career and it truly shows in everything she does. I could not be more thankful to have worked with Petite Pearl and recommend using Jessica and team with my highest praise."
Kelsey (+ James)
"Jessica went above and beyond as my event stylist. From our first meeting she made me feel relaxed and confident that she was going to be able to bring my wedding visions to life.
Not only did Jessica perfectly understand my style, she created custom decor items for me, and thought of extra, amazing little touches that I never could have. I am still getting compliments on all of the detail she put into my wedding.
Jessica also quickly answered my many emails and did everything she could to make the actual day of as stress free as possible for me. She even found an amazing chandelier when I changed my mind at the very last minute. Jessica truly puts her heart and soul into what she does and did a fabulous job at creating my dream wedding."
Stephanie (+ Nick)
"Jessica, hiring you as our wedding coordinator was one of the best decisions that we made throughout the planning process. I honestly do not know what we would have done without you! Your attention to detail, organization and professionalism were outstanding and were truly the key to success in ensuring that it all ran smoothly. We feel so blessed that we had the opportunity to work with you and thank you for helping us to have the wedding of our dreams!"
Heather + Jason
"Jessica Minnie had surpassed any and all expectations we had, and we found extremely good value in her services.
She was extremely attentive to our requests and was able to capture the vision we had for our wedding. She was able to allow us to retain decision making abilities while guiding us with her experience and professionalism. Her approach made the entire event/wedding seamless and effortless and she was quick to reply to our questions and concerns.
We definitely recommend her to anyone hosting an event they want to be remembered!"
Lareina + Jack
"Hiring Jessica to help us plan our wedding was absolutely the best investment we made for our big day. She was on top of every detail, extremely professional and very easy to work with. She had an answer to every question, a solution for every problem, and a quick response to every email (and there was a lot of emails!). We truly cannot say enough good things about Jessica as she helped make our wedding a beautiful, stress-free day and the planning would not have been such an enjoyable experience without her."
Marianne + George
"Jessica was AMAZING! She went above and beyond in every detail with our wedding. Any little hiccup was handled with ease. She was very professional while at the same time being super funny and down to earth. Taylor and I could not have asked for a better planner, and our day would never have being as amazing as it was, if it wasn't for Jessica's creativeness. She 100% saw our vision and went above it. We would highly recommend Jessica to anyone that is looking to make their day run as seamless as possible and to have your day be everything you had always dreamed it would be."
