I have known Kosta his entire life and treat him and my family like my own. Kosta would do anything for a friend and is the most caring and sincere person. When he met the love of his life Hillary, I was absolutely thrilled for him. Kosta deserved the best in a wife and he found that with Hillary. Hillary is the kindest, most genuine beautiful woman you will ever meet. Her heart is a heart of gold and I couldn't be happier for Kosta to have found such an amazing life partner who is equally as incredible as he is. The two of them are a perfect match! I was so excited to hear of their engagement and even more excited to help them plan their amazingly special day! We danced the night away, threw rice and drank ouzo! The perfect Greek wedding! I wish you all the best in your life's adventures Kosta and Hillary! Yiasas! 


This past summer we had the most perfect wedding possible. Seriously, the day went off without a single hitch. We have heard stories about people getting super stressed, or having a bunch of glitches. Luckily, we had a secret weapon up our sleeves to prevent this from happening - Brittany from Circle the Date Wedding and Event Planning. She is an absolute machine that has wedding planning down to a science and event decorating down to an art. Leading up to the day she met with us numerous times to make sure that we were staying on track. She made sure to plan for things that we never even would have thought of until it was too late. We never at any point felt a single inkling of stress because we always felt like we were on track with a plan. She coordinated with the florist, the photographer, the wedding band, the priest, the guest book attendants...you name it she coordinated it without us even having to think about it! The day of itinerary that she provided us also helped our friends of family members to know what was happening and when, which definitely allowed everyone to just sit back and relax without worrying about what had to be done. When we got to the hall we were absolutely blown away by the decorations. She had transformed our venue into a magical place. Our out of town families and friends from much larger cities kept telling us how they could not believe such a beautiful reception hall existed in Yorkton Saskatchewan. Our wedding was absolutely perfect and getting Brittany to plan and decorate it was the best choice we could have made (besides of course our choice to marry each other!). We would highly recommend having Brittany help plan and decorate your special day. It is so worth it to have a stress free, and extra special day that everyone can look back on fondly for years to come!

Margaret & Mackenzie | August 2018 | St. Mary's Cultural Center | Yorkton Sk

Congratulations to Margaret & Mackenzie for tying the knot this past August! It was such a beautiful day and the most touching ceremony. The reception venue was stunning and it was all thanks to Margaret's vision and hard work! I was so happy that I was able to help her vision come to life by providing her with rentals. My favorite decor element had to be the gorgeous personalized place cards (or should I say leaves) that sat at each setting with guest names written in gold script. And my favorite moment would have to be when they played the video that Mackenzie had made of their engagement in Hawaii. What unique touches!

Margaret & Mackenzie know how to throw a party and I think all of their guests would have to agree. 

Thank you Margaret & Mackenzie for allowing me to be a part of your special day. You both deserve all of the happiness in the world! Congratulations!


Shortly after we began planning our wedding, I quickly began to realize how much time, effort and organization would be required to create what we had envisioned. Thankfully, after our first meeting with Brittany, I knew our wedding experience would be much less stressful. 

Brittany's knowledge and professionalism are paramount. She was incredibly thorough in making sure every detail was covered to help make our day perfect. She was easy to communicate with and offered multiple suggestions and tips throughout our wedding planning process. The day of our wedding ran incredibly smooth, due in large part to Brittany's organization and expertise. 

I highly recommend Brittany because she helped me enjoy my wedding day immensely. Having her coordinate my day was easily one of the best decisions I made in my wedding planning!
