Customer Reviews

Raven exceeded our expectations

I had the pleasure of working with Raven for the first time at the Launch of the Canadian Black Chamber of Commerce on April 25, 2019. Although, our launch budget was tight which made it super challenging for Raven to execute her original vision.  Raven exceeded our expectations by pulling off and transforming the venue with all her ideas and executed a fantastic vision that exceeded our expectations. Raven was always very professional and always available to handle any questions and concerns before and during the launch.   I would recommend Raven Luxury Events for any Business or Corporate Event or special event planning, the Canadian Black Chamber of Commerce has appointed Raven as our Chamber Event Planner & Creative Director for all our future events.” – Pamela Gordon

It was basically effortless for us 

Raven worked hard to help plan our wedding when we really had no idea what to do!  She connected us with all the right people in order for us to have beautiful flowers, table decorations, invitations, and more.  She met with us at the rehearsals to make sure we all knew our roles.  She coordinated with the venue so that it was basically effortless for us and we were put at ease.  Thank you, Raven, for helping to make our wedding day a beautiful occasion for everyone to remember and cherish.  Love, Terri and Charles :)” – Terri Bartkiw

Art of Celebrations is your go-to for all things events and planning. They do everything from weddings, to social events and even corporate events. 

They are one of the few companies around Toronto that include honeymoon planning in their list of services. For couples that are overwhelmed with wedding planning, this is a bonus they’ll love! 

While they are based in Toronto, their team of destination wedding planners and designers work all throughout Canada, the USA, and the world. This is an advantage for those planning destination weddings and events. 

With over two decades in the business, they have experience working with people across different cultures as well. We like how flexible they are when it comes to catering to the needs of different clients. 

Another thing that sets them apart from other planners is their use of advanced 3D rendering technology. This allows hosts to experience and visualize their event even before it takes place.

For small social events, their services start at $2500. For bigger events with more add-ons, this price naturally goes up.

While this may be slightly higher than the industry standards, their experience and attention to detail make up for it. 

Pros

  • Does destination weddings and corporate events
  • Experience with different cultural weddings
  • Honeymoon planning included
  • 3D rendering

Cons

  • Higher than industry standards pricing
  • Does not have services for corporate planning

For corporate events, Pop Events is our choice of event planner in Toronto. Although they also offer services for social events like holiday parties and children’s parties – their corporate package stands out for us. 

From team-building events to company barbecues and meeting management – they cater to all kinds of corporate clients. They’ve even worked with several PR agencies for brand activation events. 

During the peak of the pandemic, they were one of the few companies in Toronto that adapted and started planning virtual and social distancing events. These were no ordinary virtual events – they had rigorous themes like a casino night, a virtual dance party, and even games nights which included family feud and more. 

No corporate event happens without the usual corporate gifting, and finding the right vendors for this is usually a troublesome process. What we appreciate about Pop Events is that they have their own in-house gifting concierge. 

Even if you’re not availing of their event planning services, you can order any of their specially curated gift boxes for your corporate gifting needs. Orders have to be placed with 3-week minimum notice and a minimum quantity of 24 boxes. 

If you choose to engage Pop Events, event rentals, vendor bookings, and event planning are all included in their scope of service. It is not possible to engage them for on-the-day coordination or event management only though. 

Pros

  • Specializes in corporate events
  • Does virtual events
  • Has in-house gifting concierge

Cons

  • Does not offer only management services
  • Does not offer wedding planning services

Customer Reviews

The transactions are seamless 

Every year we hold at least one event for our 1500 employees and their children and Pop! has been nothing short of amazing to deal with!  From organizing entertainment to selecting gifts, the transactions are seamless!” – April C

I’d highly recommend them for your next company event

“​​Our teams at Venterra Realty had a great time playing trivia. We had just under 60 staff join for trivia in one big Zoom meeting and it still felt very inclusive. Everyone had an equal opportunity to participate with the buzzer platform and I thought it was well managed. The Pop Events team was very responsive and patiently answered/guided me through all my pre/post-event questions and requirements (accommodating with my budget and helped people through clear instructions on how to play). I’d highly recommend them for your next company event!” – Helen Martinez

If you’re looking to host a larger-than-life event, The Concierge Club is probably who you should reach out to. They specialize in events and experiential marketing. 

The Concierge club already has a roster of impressive clients in their portfolio. Some of the brands that they’ve worked with include Sephora, Fairview, Hyundai, and more. 

For those planning marketing initiatives that are targeted towards all of Canada, The Concierge Club will make it happen. Their services are not limited to Toronto only though – their service spans across major cities in Canada as well. 

For non-corporate clients, they do private events too. They have a white-glove approach to private events to make your party feel exclusive. 

We particularly like that this 100% women and minority-owned company is not afraid of giving other event planners in Toronto a run for their money. From birthday bashes to charity galas and private auctions, The Concierge Club has worked with some of the top “who’s-who” of Toronto. 

Their social media coverage is a highlight in their list of services. You no longer have to worry about social media strategies and ads as The Concierge Club can add in this service 

to your package. 

Pros

  • Women-owned
  • Specialize in experiential marketing
  • Social Media Coverage

Cons

  • Request necessary to determine costs

The best event company in Toronto! Would highly recommend booking them for your corporate or private event. The attention to detail with everything they do is unmatched.” Darcy Price

The team is fantastic! 

The best event company in Toronto!! I have been delighted and pleased to work for The Concierge Club for almost two years. The team is fantastic! The office works behind the scenes, preparing all the details as carefully as possible. Also, all the staff working on the day of the event, with the assembly and execution of the activation. I recommend 100% the company services, for sure you will be satisfied.” – Lucas Garcia

The founder of Kauna Events, Uneku, is a certified wedding planner with the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada (WPIC). Although she specializes in weddings, she also offers other services like bridal showers, private parties and even photoshoot styling. 


They have three types of services that can fit their clients needs. The first package which is the The Day-Of Wedding Coordination, has the company involved a month before your special day. 

This service helps clients who have already booked vendors and are only looking for someone to make sure that everything happens smoothly and well coordinated. All of the planning will be placed in their hands and their clients just have to enjoy the wedding.

The Full Planning Option, on the other hand, allows their clients not to worry about anything. From vendors to the venue, they will provide it all, along with the timetable development and maintenance.

Like other wedding planners, they also offer destination weddings. They have a list of international vendors at hand which makes it much easier. 

The photoshoot styling is something that really stood out for us. We love that we don’t need to get a third-party stylist for those glamorous prenuptial photoshoots. 

Pros

  • Full and partial planning available
  • Photoshoot styling available
  • Destination wedding services available

Cons

  • Does not have options for corporate parties
  • Prices not readily available

Customer Reviews

Did a great job

Did a great job of setting up our living room for a 50th bday party. Very helpful, paid attention to details and did it all in record time. And even took care of removing everything in a clean and quick manner the next day.” – Brad Kumar

One of the best decisions that we made

We wanted a planner who would really listen to our ideas for our big day and help us bring them to life. Kauna Events did an amazing job,  even with some serious curveballs thrown at us during the planning and on the day of the wedding. Working with Kauna Events remains one of the best decisions that we made during the entire wedding planning period. Uneku was very professional, listened attentively to what we wanted, did her very best to carry out our wishes to the letter, worked very well with all our vendors – while planning an overseas wedding. Uneku was very patient with all the changes we had to make – date, venue, vendor changes – she took it all in her strides and gave us her very best. Her on-the-day coordination was executed beautifully, we didn’t have to sweat the big or little stuffs. Uneku and her team handled all the details excellently. Thank you for being a part of our journey, and we look forward to planning more events together!!” – Tomilola Adebiyi
